Shameless self-promotion!

Fuckit vol 9, “Actual Fucking Things” is out, and for this one I made some visual art. I do not know why this one felt like the end of something, but it did. (It’s not; I have made a promise to myself to submit to this ‘zine every issue unless something catastrophic happens, and sinceContinue reading “Shameless self-promotion!”

quarantine blogging: in which i rant about animal crossing

Or maybe not rant, per se. I am building a second floor on my palatial three-room estate up in the cliffs of our island, overlooking the water.  I have begun an experimental flower bed for cross-breeding; I have a little hill where I plant all the extras of everything and see what happens (what happensContinue reading “quarantine blogging: in which i rant about animal crossing”

quarantine blogging: the days all blend together

It’s Year 129578394687 of Quarantine, and man am I sick of Zoom. Some positive notes: I managed to trim my hair so that it is not driving me insane. I also started using the flat iron in the morning because I seriously hate looking at my hair doing weird flippy things during a Zoom meeting.Continue reading “quarantine blogging: the days all blend together”

quarantine blogging: oh bloody hell

From August 2015: So life is ephemeral, adulthood is hard, and my child looks to be ready to go through another growth spurt. He’s chest-high to me right now–when I rest my elbow on his head, I have to tilt my arm up, which was not the case back when summer started–so I can onlyContinue reading “quarantine blogging: oh bloody hell”

quarantine blogging

Whenever I play Candy Crush I get the urge to go to Five Below. Why?  There’s nothing I actually want at Five Below.  I refuse to spend more than $5 at Five Below, as well; I am morally outraged at the “sometimes $10” thing they started previous to the pandemic.  So what the hell isContinue reading “quarantine blogging”

quarantine blogging: I’m in more debt to Tom Nook.

I have baked bread on numerous occasions, so making a sourdough starter was not anything I was interested in.  That meant that the Quarantine Trend I could hop on was Animal Crossing! Actually, the kid wanted it, and at this point I’m down with buying him as many video games as he wants.  For oneContinue reading “quarantine blogging: I’m in more debt to Tom Nook.”

quarantine blogging: asking the real questions

 Is a pandemic a good excuse to order more notebooks? (probably no.) Do I want a Shipt account? (leaning toward yes.) I really like the Artist’s Loft notebooks from Michael’s, and am concerned that the one I use for a journal will run out before quarantine does.  However, I currently have about ten blank notebooksContinue reading “quarantine blogging: asking the real questions”

Quarantine blogging: “there is no way in which this film is not fucked up”

The husband is watching Midsomar in the office, and it literally sounds bizarre. I seem to have lost my taste for horror movies. This isn’t due to the pandemic; it’s been like this for a while, now. Not sure what happened there. Horror novels and dark fantasy stories are still my thing, though. I dunno,Continue reading “Quarantine blogging: “there is no way in which this film is not fucked up””

quarantine blogging: snakes and other creatures

My cousin’s 5 year old son has a pet snake he named “Cutie” because, it seems, the snake has a cute face.  This is adorable and reminds me of a certain child of mine, back in the day. Said child has decided to spend this week before online classes start to do a bit ofContinue reading “quarantine blogging: snakes and other creatures”
