[sticky post] (Mostly) Friends Only.

I've decided to make this mostly friends-only.

Some current events, pop culture, silly, or political stuff will stay public, but I think I'm going to keep my private life under wraps for a while. Plus the spam-bots are annoying me.

So comment if you want to be added.

Oh dear god.

To do over the next three - five days:
-read 17 studies
-write the first draft of my tutorial/thesis
-write two backlogged writing assignments
-finish two backlogged CSI lab assignments
-read the 60 pages of the book for my Vietnam class that I have to go over with my tutoring student on Tues
-read the writing class assignment for Monday
-go over the suggested edits for my pieces that are going to be published in the school's lit mag and approve final proof
-go through various evidence pieces and start to formulate my profile on the Zodiac killer for my Violent Crime class

I got this.

I think.

I hope.

Who needs sleep, right?


Dirty minds.

Aaaaaand just realized there is no way to write a description of two people discussing how to slurp raw oysters without it sounding dirty and inappropriate. Especially when it's an adult teaching a child how to eat it. Great. Gutter mind, you're terrible.

The dialogue in question:

“So what you’re going to do is just lean your head back and let it slide down your throat.”

“What does it taste like?”

“A little salty."

...and that's where I stopped typing and went "well shit. Maybe I'll just use some exposition for this bit."

I need more coffee

Sign of a bad morning/gonna be a long day:

Put shirt on backwards. Which has a v neck. And don't notice for five minutes.

And then take it off to adjust and put it back on...backwards.


Someone actually likes my writing.

Oh wow. So there's this after hours event thing at Chatham every so often called Spit Reel that's run by the undergrad Creative Writing club. People can submit pieces of writing and they choose something like three readers to present their work. I submitted something just for shits and giggles, not thinking anything more about it. It's a silly humor story about zombies so I figured that wasn't really what would be wanted, since most of the creative writing folks I've come across at this school try to be all meaningful and serious and deep because art.

Strangely enough I just got an email that I was chosen to be a featured reader. They actually said they loved the piece. That just kind of made my day.

So yeah, I guess I'll be reading a piece of my writing to a public audience on Feb 6th.


Holy crap writing that I like.

This is a piece that I did for my creative writing class. The prompt was to write about a situation where we feel/felt invalidated and dismissed. I wrote about being bi. It's kind of long and a collection of connected vignettes more than anything. I'd really love to have feedback, though. For rizzle.

“Look, all I’m saying is that I don’t believe for a minute she really wants to fuck women.”Collapse )

Crazy Good Deeds year 2

So Rich's crazy charity plans for this year is just to support Extra Life in an attempt to raise 10k. He's still doing his madcap personal challenges as incentives for people to donate. As he already raised over $500 this month, he has to wear muttonchops all next month, and eat sushi, which he hates (and I love so I'm very happy about this one). If he gets up to $1000, he has to do his own personal polar bear plunge.

Folks were saying all last year he should start a blog, and so this year he listened! Here is the link: http://crazygooddeeds.wordpress.com/

And if you want to donate to EL this month, here's his donation page: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.participant&participantID=89053

Or, since he's going by team raised amount instead of just his personal raised amount, here's my donation page, if you want to donate through me:

Blog post.

New blog post (already!) in response to the whole Steubenville rapist being released yesterday: http://goldfishdontbounce.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/sympathy-for-the-devil/

Thanks to those who checked it out, yesterday (I have a sneaky counter that tells me where people click from, muahaha). I really appreciate folks taking the time to read. Any input or suggestions are more then welcome! This is my first attempt at doing something like this, so it's a learning process. :)

Bloggy blog blog

And blog is live. My resolution is to write at least once a week, so we'll see how that goes. But here's a link if anyone is interested.
