So, it's been an interesting month here in America, hasn't it? I'm pretty sure that I don't need to go into everything that's happened since my last post, even for my international readers. We'll just say that there have been plenty of distractions being thrown at me over the past 30 days or so. So … Continue reading I Live!…..again
I didn't intend to take an entire month off from posting, but here we are. I mostly blame the release of two long-awaited (for me, at least) pieces of media on back-to-back weeks: Brandon Sanderson's book Rhythm of War, which clocked in at 1200 pages; and Shadowlands, the new World of Warcraft expansion, which got … Continue reading I’m Still Alive!
Sorry everyone, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to take next week off from posting.

Sorry about missing a couple of posts over the last week or so. We had a positive COVID diagnosis in my household, and while no one else got sick (and the person who did has recovered), we still all had to quarantine for 14 days. With that, and the testing and tracing that we all … Continue reading This virus still sucks
Shit's getting bad in America (well, worse) this week. The blog will be back in a bit. Good luck to everyone
I've been home due to the virus for over a month now, and I'm starting to lose track of what day it is. As a result, I completely missed my last post. Oh well. I'm going to put it up tonight, and today's regularly-scheduled post will go up tomorrow instead.
