The Cursed Child Questions (Spoilers Abound) Part 4

Last time (I think), you have been warned. There are absolutely, definitely huge spoilers in this post for JK Rowling’s The Cursed Child. Look away if you don’t want the play ruined. I mean it. This is your last warning… Okay, coast is clear. So Voldemort and Bellatrix had a child: Delphi, otherwise known as […]

#Microblog Mondays 104: End of Summer Blues

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. We’re nearing the end of summer.  Soon the twins will be back in school, and I’ll be expected to buckle down and accomplish things.  No more beach, no more pool. I always have a hard […]

The Business Card Collectors

The twins and I have been in a mad dash with each other to collect business cards from our favourite places.  It began when the Wolvog wistfully took a business card from our pet store during our last visit.  He only confided this after we got home, and I was left to (1) kick myself […]

608th Friday Blog Roundup

The kids and I jumped back in the car this week and returned to the beach on our own. Josh stayed home with Truman, though the hotel staff seemed genuinely sad that we didn’t bring him along and asked about him.  Truman, I mean.  Sorry, Josh. We spent a few days eating junk food… I […]

The Cursed Child Questions (Spoilers Abound) Part 2

Once again, you have been warned. There are spoilers in this post for JK Rowling’s The Cursed Child. Okay, this particular post doesn’t really contain a huge, plot-revealing spoiler, but if you’re sensitive to spoilers of any kind, SKIP THIS POST. I mean it. Really, click away if you haven’t read the play. This is […]

The Cursed Child Questions (Spoilers Abound) Part 1

You have been warned. There are spoilers in this post. Like huge, plot-revealing spoilers. Okay, maybe not this one, per se, but certainly in one of the other posts I’m planning to write. There is a lot to discuss in JK Rowling’s The Cursed Child. So shall we begin? Really, click away if you haven’t […]

#Microblog Mondays 103: Events

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. By the time the next Microblog Monday rolls around, the Olympics will be over.  Sniff.  There are still the Paralympic Games to look forward to in September, but then they’ll be over and we’ll have […]

Our Travel Companion

We just went on vacation with Truman, by which I mean, in one fell swoop we became one of those “weirdest guests ever” stories that the hotel staff will tell for years to come.  Would we have gone on holiday with our paralyzed guinea pig if there was another option?  Of course not.  But that’s […]

607th Friday Blog Roundup

The twins and I have started reading The Cursed Child.  It took us a few days because we had other stuff on the to-do list that had to get done.  But now we’re chugging through it. We had a few read-aloud methods we considered beforehand since we wanted it to be a one-woman show.  At […]

Auditioning Books

I used to be a pick-up-a-book-and-read-it sort of person.  I could read a description of the book on someone’s blog or in a magazine, glance at the first page, and generally get through the whole thing, happily.  I rarely stopped reading a book in the middle, and because I only started books that piqued my […]

Maps to Nowhere

The same day that I was telling a friend about the Wolvog’s imaginary land from childhood (and she was telling me about the one her daughter invented), I read about Jerry Gretzinger’s map.  Jerry started drawing the map of his imaginary land in 1963, and it is now 3200 panels.  Bright hues, tiny towns, and […]

#Microblog Mondays 102: Brigadeiro

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. Happy Olympics! I’m on an eternally-going group chat.  It started out for talking about game development, and while it sometimes is still about game development, it’s more just talking about our day.  A while back, […]

More Than You Bargained For

I was squicked out this week by the Daily Beast article about Glow, a fertility tracking app that had a few creepy features and security loopholes.  Glow has addressed the problems that Consumer Reports found in their study, but at its core there is a really uncomfortable question: Is Glow for the user or are […]

606th Friday Blog Roundup

The Olympics start tonight.  I have big plans to spend the evening in my pyjamas in front of the television.  I love the parade of countries when the teams walk in, waving their flags.  And the lighting of the Olympic flame.  I’m just really excited about the broadcast. But. Is it my imagination, or could […]

The Benefits to Being Uncomfortable

It’s mid-week, and I’m still mentally turning over River Run Dry’s post from Monday, which means I should probably write about it and get it out of my brain.  Like Karen, I also don’t like to be in that uncomfortable place outside my comfort zone.  She explains, I have a card that I taped to […]

The Emptied Place

I couldn’t get through Ghazala Khan’s gorgeous op-ed without crying. Then I couldn’t talk about it with Josh without crying. And then I went on Facebook and saw other people mentioning it, so I cried again. You must read it. There is a perfect paragraph in the center of the piece, one that puts into […]

#Microblog Mondays 101: Pen Pals

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. Speaking of letters (uh… I spoke of letters about two weeks ago), I remember having a pen pal through my elementary school.  Everyone’s pen pal was from a different country (though everyone wrote in English, […]

The Cursed Child

I know what you’re going to ask me: Did I stay up all night to start reading J.K. Rowling’s The Cursed Child. And the answer is no. My copy hasn’t arrived. I wish Amazon had a section on their ordering page determining the level of your fandom and then delivering products from said fandom faster […]

605th Friday Blog Roundup

When the state of the world and the churning hate being pumped into the atmosphere are bringing you down, there is only one way to combat the negative: Purchase a copy of Steel Magnolias. I talked the ChickieNob into watching it with me this week. She has grown up hearing me quote this movie all […]

The Other Side of Retirement

Truman has become obsessed with Critical Care, the Ensure-like nutrition supplement for guinea pigs.  The second he smells it, he starts wheeking and looking around frantically.  If he dribbles a drop, we need to pause while he licks it from the bedding (and then eats the piece of bedding for good measure).  His weight has […]
