Oops, I’m Doing It Again!

Ah, yes, November. Month of harvest, fall, Thanksgiving, and that special hell known as NaNoWriMo.

And yeah, I know, I swore I never would, but I’m doing it again.

Look, it’s no big. I’m going to use it to finish Really Terrible Bible Stories vol. 4: Numbers. And I know some folks will complain because it’s supposed to be a novel and it’s supposed to be fiction, but hey – the Bible is fiction. And I’m of the opinion that NaNo is no use unless you can use it to further your writing goals. In my case, my goal is to get this damned book done, because I’d like to spend less than 66 years completing the Really Terrible Bible Stories series.

So I’ve done up the cover: Continue reading “Oops, I’m Doing It Again!”

Monday Musical Interlude: A UFO!!!

It’s Labor Day in the United States, and I don’t feel like laboring much. The unions fought for my right to be a lazy bum on weekends, damn it. I’ll not dishonor their struggles by putting my nose to the grindstone! Besides, we saw a UFO at Mount Rainier and I want to show you it!

Image shows a ridge and forested mountains. The sun is shining in the sky. There is a bright, greenish orb of light floating on top of one of the ridges.
See it? See that greeny glow just over the ridge, there? It’s totally a UFO. Definitely not lens flare. I don’t care what anybody says.

Here it is, coming in for a landing!

In the same scene a second later, the orb is touching the ridge line.
I’m sure they come with a message of peace and prosperity for Earth or something. I shoulda listened when the Uranchia enthusiast at our bookstore talked our ears off about it daily for hours. Then I’d know what they’re here for.

BECAUSE IT’S TOTALLY NOT LENS FLARE. LET ME HAVE MY DELUSIONS, OKAY?!

Here is a nice set of close-ups so you can see it is definitely a UFO coming in for a landing. Continue reading “Monday Musical Interlude: A UFO!!!”

The Geology of Fireworks

America is about to blow up a bunch of stuff for its 240th birthday. I love it! Who doesn’t love fireworks? Well, aside from animals like my childhood dog, who invariably hid under the bed in cowering terror. And people who have had enough of explosions to last them a lifetime. People who are triggered or kept awake by loud bangs. People who are phobic about fire. All right, so there’s a long list of people and other animals who don’t like fireworks. But hopefully, even if you can’t stand ’em, you’ll be able to enjoy the geology, chemistry, and physics of them. Continue reading “The Geology of Fireworks”

Frivolous Friday: Okay, We All Pretty Much Have to Get Married Now

Yes, I am. I am proposing to you all (excepting any creeps reading this – I’m not proposing to you). I want you all to marry me (see previous disclaimer). We don’t necessarily have to stay married, if you don’t want to – we just need to all have the big lavish wedding together. Why? Because thanks to Zeroth, I just found out geode wedding cakes are a thing. Go feast your eyes on those.

You want to accept my proposal now, don’t you? Continue reading “Frivolous Friday: Okay, We All Pretty Much Have to Get Married Now”

Frivolous Friday: Which Upcoming Movie Are You Craving?

Summer movie discussion time, my darlings! Or, if you’re in the southern half of the world, winter movie discussion time! I’m busy writing fiction this week, which has got me thinking about fiction. There’s a lot coming out this summer (or winter). I’m looking forward to a few, but if I had to pick just one, I think it would be… Continue reading “Frivolous Friday: Which Upcoming Movie Are You Craving?”
