When You Feel You’re Falling Off a Cliff…

A Wicked, Wicked Man (video)

At our synagogue, we have yet to do a pirate-themed Purim spiel, inspired by Edward Kritzler’s history of Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean. (And that is a true fact.)

The Twenty-first Century Meeting

Therefore, here’s a video of every conference call you’ve ever been in… (Except for the one with the speakerphone that doesn’t quite work right, and you can’t understand anything anyone is saying.)

A Thanksgiving of Gratitude

So it’s Thanksgiving, and… What are you doing online today?! As for me, my side of the family is getting together for a big holiday bash tomorrow, and my Beloved’s family on Sunday. So that means I have another day to prepare the big Black Friday/Cyber Monday holiday offer I’ve been working on, which I […]

Bits & Pieces 2012-10-25

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Or Maybe I Need to Learn to Talk Like John Moschitta … or Paris Geller. My mind goes back to one episode of Gilmore Girls (“It Should Have Been Lorelai”, season 2, episode 14—and no, I didn’t know that off the top of my head) when Paris […]

Bits & Pieces 2012-10-18

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. NOTE: I’ve been light on the posts, because I’m working feverishly on the next novel, Ardor Point #2… which I need to come up with a proper name for. Currently, the two top contenders are A Reason to Live and Finding Light. Race Relations on the Internet […]

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Are You a Twitter Bot?

As it turns out, I’m a human—Phew! And so […]

And This Is Why You Want to Be Careful around Explosives

You may have already heard, but since I don’t have anything better to post right now, I’ll tell you again. The San Diego Fourth of July fireworks show this year malfunctioned, setting off the entire thing like a match in a fireworks factory, burning through the entire 18-minute display in about 20 seconds. I think […]

Rats, Naked, and a Fast Car

Over the past two days, I’ve been (a) digging out from under more than a foot of snow and (b) taxiing everyone around in the Corolla (because the Saturn is still stuck in more than a foot of snow). The Little One has had three days off from school, and my Firstborn is perhaps weighing […]

Big Book Giveaway – Video Promo

Here’s a quick-n-dirty video I made for this year’s Big Book Giveaway, showing off some books by Julie Carobini (Christian romance), Holly Lisle (fantasy romance), Jess C Scott (teen romance), and Sharon Cathcart (historical romance). (I’m sorry that I forgot to bring Jen Knox’s excellent memoir with me when I did the video. But she […]
