Fun From Around the Web: Momaiku

Proof Twitter has it’s uses: I encountered Jeannine Bergers Everett via the #MyWANA tag and discovered she writes snarky haiku about her teenagers. These little bits are seriously funny and a great break during the day. Consider He Didn’t Notice the Big...

What Glorious Feeling

The plot is not just simple but simplistic, the “black moment” lasts all of 15 seconds, there is no deep characterization or expertly layered subplots. There is, however, a street, a song, a rainstorm and Gene Kelly in one of Hollywood’s most iconic...

There Are Many Roads to Oz

I highly recommend popping over to Routines for Writers today and reading Kitty Bucholtz’s post on “When Shouldn’t I Write?” Funny, but she’s talking about some of the same things I wrote about yesterday. Kitty also takes on one thing...

I Have Screwdriver. I Am All-Powerful.

Five Things I Learned From the London 2012 Olympics

1) Dressage is very zen. Seriously. Those beautiful animals go through their paces can be a form of meditation. 2) Watching the Olympics is itself a marathon. Far too many hours of coverage conflicting with work, writing, knitting and small items such as eating and...

Goody!

For the past seventeen days, I’ve been watching the Olympics, mostly on time delay because the sports I enjoy most don’t usually hit prime time. The joy of this that I can fast forward through the commercials, including NBC’s promos for its new fall...
