Had to add this link...
12:08 pm pst
It's possibly the funniest thing I've seen in a long time:
Why having a toddler is like being at a frat partyhttp://www.suburbansnapshots.com/2010/06/10-reasons-having-toddler-is-like-being.html
In other news, I'm starting to read up on 2 Henry 1V, and lemme tell ya, it's so profoundly, utterly, incessantly dull.
And for those of you out there who think Shakespeare's history plays are dull, at least they were at one point meant to entertain.
These articles are just plain boring. Here's hoping I can get a) be more interesting in my dissertation so I don't put myself
to sleep, and b) that I can trudge through all this reading before the next millennium.

Long time no see!
Hey, all! I said I'd do better in 2009, and now I'm here to make good on my promise--in 2012!

Things that are different now...
--My son is 3 and a half years old. Right now, he loves dinosaurs! Go apatosaurus!
--I'm feverishly working on my dissertation, which takes up a lot of the time I have when I'm not hangin' with the hubby and
--I've been reborn as a speculative poet. I still write the non-genre stuff, but now I'm an official member of the Science
Fiction Poetry Association and have been published in great journals like Astropoetica, Mythic Delirium, and Star*Line. One
of my poems is featured on the StarShipSofa Poetry Planet podcast, AND I just got a piece accepted at Strange Horizons. Yay!
And that greatly esteemed poet who called me a spacehead? He was right on the money, and now I have the credentials to prove
it. Aw yeah, spaceheads!
So that's it for now. Here's hoping next time won't be in another three years.
