Recipe: Vegetarian Sloppy Joes

Mostly putting this down here so I have the recipe for myself. I put it in the Musa Publishing blog once, but since Musa has shut down I don’t expect that blog to hang around forever. So, from me to you, one of the few things I make that could properly be considered a specialty: ...

Toot toot, here comes the book nostalgia train 7

Sunil was talking about his childhood love of the Babysitters Club books on Twitter earlier and that me thinking. I wasn’t actually a fan of BSC despite being in its perfect target demographic. I think I remember even knowing other girls my age that loved those books, but I… didn’t get in to them. Possibly ...

Bakery Elf Adventures

Bakery Elf Adventures
A while ago I wrote a little story about those mysterious beings known to the unfortunates who encounter them as bakery elves. This is because I have a friend who has, unwittingly, risen to the bready height of their rank. Since then, I’ve written a couple of sketches about Jester’s adventures as a unproven bakery ...

Last Chance to Get Captain Ramos (for now) 3

Sad news that I should have been clear about sooner: Musa Publishing, the small publisher that took on my steampunk mystery series, is closing down. Which means that my novellas will no longer be available. The good news is, that’s only for now. I’ve got plans on the horizon for the triumphant return and continuation of ...

By the bulging right eye of Christian Grey! 6

By the bulging right eye of Christian Grey!
The story so far: Sixteen sadistic jerk-asses banded together and raised $843.39, thus forcing me to see 50 Shades of Grey. I went on Saturday. I had two beers and three hurricanes in a little over two hours. I am not ashamed to admit that I got really fucked up in a way that had ...

Pop culture matters, and education, and history, and… 2

On the way to Dallas for ConDFW, I started reading (listening to, actually) The Shock Doctrine: the Rise of Disaster Capitalism. The book is a great read if you want a reminder of how we actually shouldn’t be in the slightest bit surprised about all the gross shit that went down surrounding our invasion of Iraq (we’ve ...

I see how it is. 2

Well, it happened. With just over five days to spare, you motherfuckers did it. I’m going to have to watch 50 Shades of Shitty Writing, and then tell you all about it. 12 people from three different countries, united in their hatred of both me and domestic abuse, have donated a combined $753.39 to anti-domestic violence ...

And that’s a wrap! 1

We finished the filming on Tea about four hours ago! The vodka has been drunk, goodbyes have been said, and here is the complete production diary.

Fifty Shades of This Is How It Is 31

I just had a seventh person ask me if I’m going to see Fifty Shades of Grey  and rant about it like I did with the quasi-porn of a different sort, Transformers 4. The short answer is: Fuck you. The long answer is: No really. Fuck you. And you. And especially you. I’d rather watch a 48 hour loop ...

Where the f*** is Rachael now? 1
