Here! have a random picture of Beaver Lake Park! The mountain is gorgeous this time of year.

This is a quick update to tell y’all that I just finished editing chapter 9 of Blood of Midnight: The Broken Prophecy. I think I have time to plough through chapter 10 before I have to run off to ninjutsu class. Yay! Almost halfway done and lookin’ good!

We Need to Talk

This is not okay:

Why am I posting this on my work blog? Because it’s an important issue that needs to be discussed.

When is it okay to strip your friend naked in front of strangers or new acquaintances without their consent? Pretty much everyone would agree: never. So why do so many people do it?

I know what you’re thinking. 

“What? This is a thing now? I didn’t hear about this.”

I personally know several people who have had this happen to them and continue to have it happen to them at work, at school, out shopping, at parties, everywhere. It happens to trans people. It should go without saying that what’s in a person’s pants is no one else’s business but it apparently needs to be said. This is a sad state of affairs.

What’s even sadder is that many people don’t even realize what they’ve done and don’t understand why their friend is so upset when it happens. Kindly allow me to remove the mystery.

Something to Be Thankful For

Wonderful news! In less than two weeks, Alex fully edited all 19 chapters of Blood of Midnight: The Broken Prophecy. Spectacular work! Now I must buckle down and implement the necessary changes and it will be back in his hands for a second round.

I must admit, I’ve been sweating over the winter deadline a bit, but no more! Feels great to be back in action after a nice, restful Thanksgiving long weekend.

It looks much better when lit obviously but I won’t be able to snap a photo of that until after sundown. The boxes are all repurposed from things I’ve bought like a kitchen scale or laptop or what-have-you. Painted black. The pictures are cut from old calendars while the mask and pseudo jack o’ lantern (Box o’ lantern?) were my creations. Hurray for reusing things!

Geno 2.0

So, this little guy arrived yesterday in the mail.

I’m pretty excited to find out about my ancestors. Last year around this time, I heard of this Genographic Project but didn’t have enough money for the 200.00CAD at that time. This year, I saved the funds as part of the Halloween budget to make sure I could do it as a tribute to my ancestors. Continue reading “Geno 2.0”

It’s that time of year again …

Here’s a sneak preview of my Samhain decorations.

Doesn’t look as good with the flash on but hopefully I’ll be able to snap a photo of it lit up when I figure out this camera.
