My New Team: Meet Mr. Cat

TweetThank you very much for all the comments yesterday. I fasted, I slept, I looked to the stars for guidance and I have decided to support…. Davidson College: “Where Hoops and Books Coexist”. Even though they are located in you-know-where. And if, by some strange chance, they get beat, I’ll support whoever beats them, and […]

Want to read it before anyone else?

Spring on the tundra

TweetMary Pearson posted gorgeous spring photos yesterday. Since it was, officially, Spring, i.e. the Vernal Equinox, i.e. Ostara, and I was well enough to get off the couch, I went in search of proof of the event in my own backyard. I didn’t find much. Down south in Syracuse, they have grass and mud. Up […]

Ask me questions, please

TweetThis medicine the doc gave me is amazing. I am already feeling much better. Sad, though, about the death of Arthur C. Clarke, whose books, along with Heinlein’s, helped me survive high school. Clarke lived to be 90 years old. I can’t begrudge him getting tired after a while. I am putting the finishing touches […]

I’m not dead yet

TweetIn fact, this medicine is definitely helping. I don’t feel great, but I’ve stopped telling BH to order me a pretty coffin with built-in bookshelves. Thank you to everyone who made me laugh yesterday (and this morning, Jerry). Congratulations are in order for one of my favorite YA librarians, Stephanie Squicciarini, from Fairport, NY. Stephanie […]

TweetDoc says I have the flu. I suspect he’s right. I also suspect I have a touch of bubonic plague and more than a little yellow fever as well. I’m taking the medicine he ordered and trying hard not to groan too loudly. More good news about TWISTED came in, but it hurts to type […]

Slinkety Link Day

TweetThe lung dragon is threatening to attack again, I’m having trouble sleeping, and I have doctors’ appointments today. It snowed again yesterday. Just a little, but it was still snow. I am officially Miss CrankyPants. So instead of whining, I will give you fun links. Stephanie Anderson writes Bookavore, a hell of a good book […]
