“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

Back!

Back from vacation! I have Things to say, about Amsterdam, about Seville. Now that I have promised this, though, I will probably never get around to saying them. :p Maybe I'll put the pictures up as an album on G+ at some point. Short version: Amsterdam was cold ...

Meanwhile, In the Cold and Rainy North…

(I decided to move this post here from tumblr after discussing (okay okay, "explaining without having been asked") what I use the two blog platforms for. It is probably a ridiculous distinction only I care about, but anyway...)This follows: http://subdee.tumblr.com/post/10966340645/things-about-england( Notes about - what else! - the weather )Shoutout to berthardy, up ...

The week before last, was in town and I brought up the possibility of restarting on Dreamwidth. She gave her blessing, so I'll probably start direct-messaging the old members soon, to see what the interest level is like and to collect ideas for the restart. Getting ...

Last Saturday

My great-aunt Susan and I went to Brooklyn to see my cousin Sam's art exhibit. Susan was unusually timid when she asked whether I wanted to go - lots of "perhaps"es in the email -- and she also asked my mother, first, if I'd be interested. My ...

Storm

I went to work today because I called the wrong partner - if I'd asked E, she'd have told me to avoid the weather and stay home, and she was the only one who was even in the office! But the City wasn't a bad place to be today. ...

My 2012 In Review

I didn't write much this year - or not much fiction anyway. I wrote my masters thesis, and though it could have been much better I am content with the way it came out.  In nonfiction land, I signed on as a contributor to The Hooded Utilitarian. Though I don't have ...

Big Bang @ Prudential Center, 12/9/12

As promised on tumblr. This is very long, so I apologize in advance. ^^ BTW, I'm sitting in a cafe in New Brunswick next to someone using "Fantastic Baby" as a ringtone, and it turns out she was also at the show on Friday. Small world! The New York ...

I turned in my master's thesis. It's kinda weak - I wrote the conclusion in 24 hours including searching for supporting references - but it's a personal milestone for me since it's the longest thing I have ever finished, more-or-less on time. It's 50 pages without references or appendixes (but ...

Olympics, etc.

I am so totally out of the Olympic loop - though I heard there's an outdoor screen at the Castle Museum gardens in York that's doing public screenings of Olympic events, so I might go to that. I missed the torch when it passed through a few weeks ago. ...

6-years-too-late review of disposable teen comedy, John Tucker Must Die

Saw this with M. It's really not too bad... if you ignore the ending, aha. Especially the casting for John Tucker is good: at first you are like, what do any of these girls see in this guy? But by the end you are like, hmm, ...
