This is technically a bonus, since we’ve slipped below the $70 donation milestone, but I have faith that we’ll get back up there soon enough. :-)

Luca was standing outside of a dance hall in Boston when a gorgeous blonde woman threw herself at him. Bastard or no, he was a gentleman, so he caught her, one hand on her slim waist, the other on her shoulders. Her hair fell forward into his face, filling his nose with an intoxicating scent that no perfume could duplicate.

Migration!

I like to change books at month-end when I know I'm not going to get through the next month in my current book. I pretty reliably can fit three months in a pocket Leuchtturm.

Since I'm thinking about migration, I'm curious if other people have a process for it, and how you decide what to bring over?

Part of my process is the "closing up" of the old book by typing up anything that's left to need moved to Evernote, like story or poem notes, blog post ideas, that kind of thing. I gather up all of my outstanding to-dos for the first Master List in the new journal, and then move over the current month's bill calendar. If I have any ongoing projects, I might copy over relevant information, but very little actually moves.

I get the impression from youtube that this is a fairly basic process compared to how some people handle it. ;) What are your thoughts?

MARKED - 8.6

“Hey! I’m nice” The voice came from behind Lorque and Nilien and, as one, they tensed and turned around. Not Istore, not Istore… Chason was looking indignantly at them.

Phew.

“We were saying Istore wasn’t - coming up right behind you,” Lorque ended unhappily. “Hi, Istore, did you get that math problem figured out?”

“I did. What’s wrong with you? You look like you just ate a lemon.”

Sooo y’all might’ve noticed how it’s been a crazy erratic posting schedule around here lately. I want to apologize for that, first; can’t go into details without going into My Personal Life but I have been dropping the ball a lot.

Found this while looking for writing prompt bingo card communities. It's a bingo card generator that you can either use to create your own bingo card (i.e. give it a list of prompts of your own choosing) or use one of a variety of pre-generated lists. It allows you to create cards as small as 1x1 and as large as 7x7.

It's located here: http://an.owomoyela.net/fun/bingo_generator#generated_card

I found it thanks to http://allbingo.dreamwidth.org/

Australian Grapefruit, Adore Tea, sencha, green tea, Earl Grey Editing, Loose-leaf Links

Loose-leaf Links is a feature where I gather together the interesting bits and pieces on sci-fi, fantasy and romance I’ve come across and share them with you over tea. Today’s tea is Australian Grapefruit from Adore Tea. It tastes like a plain sencha at first, but finishes with a strong citrus aftertaste.

Thursday Yardening

Today is mild and partly cloudy.

Round 1, I cut more grass around the wagonwheel garden.

There are still two white eggs in the mourning dove nest. 

EDIT 5/25/17: Round 2, we picked up sticks in the yard near the house.  

The sun is coming out, and the weather is heating up.  It's not all the way to hot yet, but it turning warm and muggy.  :/  I have a suspicion that the air will be solid mosquitoes this evening.

EDIT 5/25/17: Round 3, we finally got around to putting down the concrete pavers.  Four went at the corner of the patio for the burn barrel.  2 went near the barrel garden to hold the yard sculpture.

The air has cooled down somewhat and is pleasant again.

EDIT 5/25/17: Round 4, I trimmed grass around another tree and pulled weeds around the forest garden.

"NEEGATIVE FIVE STARS. What a terrible recipe! I was out of flour but
didn't want to go to the store so I substituted a cup of plaster and a cup of gravel, spray margarine for the cultured butter, and stevia drops for the sugar, and then fried the batter in bacon grease instead of baking it. And I didn't give it the 24 hour rest recommended in the recipe because I'm impatient. The results are INEDIBLE and clearly you CANNOT COOK and should DELETE YOUR BLOG."


Context is tired of stupid recipe reviews.

Indivisible Guide is holding a Facebook Live event tonight at 8:30 pm (eastern), covering the CBO score and other TrumpCare issues, Russia, and "how you can hold your members of Congress accountable this recess." The message also has info. about the June 3 March for Truth in over 100 cities--the cutline is "for transparency, for democracy, for truth."

ETA: This just in--en banc 4th Circuit voted 10-3 to affirm the nationwide preliminary injunction against the Muslim ban. The decision describes the ban as using "vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination."

Confirmation Bias

Here's a cartoon about confirmation bias.  While it technically fits the definition, it's not about belief, but rather about greed -- or possibly survival.  In any case it's an example of how many things which are currently claimed as science are not actually science.  But when you call them that, people mistrust science, instead of mistrusting greed.

Chapter 20: Cynara
by Lyn Thorne-Alder


Wednesday, October 25, 2000

“Ugh.”  The lights flickered out with a crackle.  “Leofric!”

Eriko’s expression needed no light.  Cynara could see the tired twist of her face already, the exasperated way she looked when she dealt with her boyfriend.  She could see Leo’s cringing apology too, the way his shoulders would shrug forward and he’d try to make himself smaller.  It made Cynara want to hug him; it made her want to punch Eriko.

“It wasn’t me,” Leo protested weakly.

“…I was going to buy that skirt…” Abigail complained.

“No, you weren’t. You would hem and haw about the price and in the end you would’ve left with nothing.” Liv patted her on the shoulder. “We could go into the bookstore there, or we could go to that place that looks like it’s selling herbs and spices?”

“Herbs and spices first. Once we get in a bookstore, we’re going to be there ‘till it’s time for your mom to pick us up.”

Liv giggled. “Like that one time, when she came in to get us…”

“Or that time she had the store page us.

“Or that time she texted us bits of War and Peace until we came out on our own… Yeah. The herb and spice place first.”

The Lusty Lady

There must be some bibliophilic older queer woman in my neighborhood who keeps dropping her queer books in the free library. Whoever she is, THANK YOU LADY!

From this hypothetical human, I have managed to get my hands on Exile and Pride, a really crappy pink book about multiplicity that I ditched, and now The Lusty Lady which is about the woman-owned peep show by the same name in Seattle. Back in the 90s, a photographer wanted to tell the dancers’ stories, only to be told that if she wanted to get it, she needed to work there. So she did, and the book is made up of her photos and work stories.

I picked the book up because I’ve heard of the Lusty Lady and wanted to learn about it, only to get an awesome reference text of queerness, sex work, and women in the 90s.
