Tuesday Tangents: Google + Carmageddon = Comic-Con??

It’s been quite a while since I posted Tuesday Tangents – actually, they’ve been more likely to show up on Wendy’s blog lately than here – but I’ve got a few things I’ve been wanting to talk about that just won’t stand as blog posts on their own, so here we go. Are you trying out Google+ yet? (If you’d like to and need an invite, leave me your e-mail and I can send you one.) I’ve been playing around with it for a week or two now, and I’m still trying to sort out exactly how I want to […]

Tuesday Tangents: “It’s GROUNDHOG DAY!” Edition

Tuesday Tangents: “It’s GROUNDHOG DAY!” Edition

I really can’t manage to stay away from this place very long, can I? But I did need that couple of days off last week. Thanks for not deserting me in the meantime! My “memorial” post about Gypsy went up yesterday (and her photo has become a fixture on the blog sidebar). I tried not to make it too much of a downer, but I wanted to do two things with it. I wanted to explain my bond with her, and I wanted to show what led to our difficult decision to have her put to sleep; I hope I […]

This week’s not-so-special: extra “Tangents” on Thursday!

This week’s not-so-special: extra “Tangents” on Thursday!

I don’t go in for New Year’s Resolutions, but one thing I’d like to try this year is being a little less fixated on how often I post here. I liked that “unplugged” thing during the holidays, and I considered not posting today. But I usually prefer to let y’all know in advance when I won’t be here – a planned vacation day as opposed to calling in sick, I guess – and I hadn’t done that. Then I realized that since I went “all TV, all the time” this Tuesday, I hadn’t posted a proper dose of Tuesday Tangents […]

Sunday Salon

This is going to look a little bit like a book-related Sunday edition of Tuesday Tangents, but here goes: The Blogging Authors Reading Project is LIVE! It’s my first hosted challenge, but you’ll notice I’m not calling it a “challenge” – it’s a reading project, and not a very complicated one, either. Will you join me this year in reading books by authors who blog? Check out the announcement post, and if you’re in, let me know with a comment over there! And here I go, asking for another comment – but this time, it’s for a cause: In case […]

Week-End Review: Happy New Year!

Week-End Review: Happy New Year!

Good day, and welcome to 2010! I hope that you’ve had a pleasant holiday week, and that your New Year is starting out with at least one day of relaxation and good cheer. Like all good Southern Californians, we’ll probably start the day with the Tournament of Roses Parade, but since Chris is hanging out with friends today, the rest of us will probably be spared the football games. Tomorrow morning he flies back to D.C., and on Monday it’s back to work, school, and the real world. Sigh.Between the holiday blogging slowdown and all the year-end recaps, I don’t […]

The Year in Review: ‘Riting and Randomness, 2009

The Year in Review: ‘Riting and Randomness, 2009

I “borrowed” this first line meme from Kristen at BookNAround – it suggests that taking the first line of the first post of each month of the year will make an interesting portrait of your blogging year. I guess it depends on how you define “interesting,” but let me know if you can spot a theme here. I don’t see one, other than the fact that several of my “firsts” were Weekend Assignments. However, you may notice that I was providing disclosure statements about my review books before all that FTC business got started… January: I’m not a stickler for […]
