Happy Thanksgiving

A happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers. Eat lots of turkey (or tofurkey, if that’s your thing), and ignore the scolds who tell you not to indulge on this day of indulgence. Meimei agrees.

Well, there were a few posts here and there. I published book two in The Catmage Chronicles. I’m working on book 3. I went to Water Country, USA with my nephew (we had a ton of fun). My Jeep Wrangler … Continue reading

I’m back. Did you miss me?

I got tired of blogging earlier this year. I pretty much quit. Thought that was the end of it, I’d stop posting my thoughts about Israel and Jewish issues and politics and cats. Okay, never cats. Figured I’d just start … Continue reading

Moving right along

Is it ending?

I’m finding more and more that I want to post less and less on the issues that you read on this blog. I know I’ve said it before, but it feels like this time I really am nearing the end … Continue reading

Gym, services, laser tag, movie, county fair… yeah, I’m tired. Cat pictures tomorrow, perhaps.

Hulk smash Meimei!

Yeah, still not caring about the news. Meimei’s been jumping on my bookshelves lately, at least, on the lower couple of shelves. She finds it a great place to get to the high ground when she’s battling Tig. I’ve been … Continue reading

A week late, but happy blogiversary to me

On April 22nd, 2001, I started this blog. The first pages were hand-coded HTML. I was so green I didn’t know that permalinks were simply anchors on the page, so the first few months there were no individual post links. … Continue reading

Out of energy

I finished the post-copy editor edit this weekend. Then I saw Wicked. Went to the gym both today and yesterday. Saw Captain America 2. And I’m just all-out tired. We will return to our regularly scheduled posting tomorrow.

This has been a short day

Had a bit of a relapse with the cold I caught earlier this week. Slept late, did nothing but a load of laundry. And now I’m off to bed early, and up to NorVA tomorrow. I need another few co-bloggers, … Continue reading

I got nuthin’

Feeling a bit under the weather all week, so I went to the doctor’s this morning. Nothing serious, but now I have antibiotics to make me better. Unfortunately, except for work, much of my life has been thrown off. Haven’t … Continue reading
