Time apparently is not on my side

I took four days off, and didn’t add so much as a paragraph to the Works In Progress. At the next available opportunity, I’m taking fourteen days off. We’ll see if that helps.

Not even a Flutterbat

Trick-or-treaters were down about 75 percent from last year, for reasons I cannot even begin to fathom. For now, I’m going with “too many clouds in the way of the moon,” which sounds more plausible than, say, blaming it on Taylor Swift.

I have already secured a seat, through the miracle of the Internet, based on one simple observation: that first theater, 65 miles away, has… (more…)

Verging on adorkable

This is too funny not to pass on: 100% true story today while @ my yearly check-up Doc: "You're a Jewish girl that likes to have sex?! You must be a unicorn!!!" Actually.. — tara strong (@tarastrong) August 13, 2014 Admittedly, some times it’s more obvious than others.

Sudden flood

Wednesday of this past week, this site recorded 60 page views, which is about 15 times the usual. I have no idea what’s going on, since I posted nothing new that day. Ideas?
