How to make new lasting friendships as an adult

About eleven years ago last month, Poppy and I met for drinks in Chicago and she said “Hey, have you ever considered having a Diaryland-Con in Green Bay? I like spa weekends, and I kind of want to experience the Bad Bar.” A legacy was born on March 4, 2005 when we held the first […]

The best of times (Holiday Card Exchange 2016!)

  Hello! How are you? Is that a new haircut? Damned you are looking good! Somehow it’s fall. I’m not sure how that happened – the last several months have gone by incredibly quickly and now we’ve got a limited number of weekends before everything kind of shuts down for the winter. Please indulge me […]

You are a star

Photo courtesy of Suzanna Danna Hello little blog world! It is spring almost! Practically! How did that happen?! Fucking Daylight Saving Time, that’s how, apparently.

Ahem

Her: You haven’t posted for awhile. November 21. Me: What? Certainly not. I’ve posted more since then. Her: November 21. I check frequently. Me: Huh. But…but…the Year End Video counts! It didn’t quite go that way. Mostly it went that way. Because yes, I did the opposite of Hollidailies, it seems. And also, I suck. […]

Meta meta-ness

So many of you have either commented or e-mailed that you want to come to Weetacon (March 5-7, 2010!) and see what it’s all about (and let’s face it, could there BE a cheaper readymade weekend getaway? Plus, I defy you to walk out of Weetacon without having made at least one amazing new bff) […]

No Exit

It occurred to me yesterday that I really don’t like Modest Mouse. I thought I did, and quite honestly, “Float On” is a great song. It is. It’s not you, “Float On”, it’s me. However, I continue to write the names of the members of Stars in my spiral bound notebooks, and then draw hearts […]
