Back when I used to care about things like social media metrics and such, some aggregator of, I don't know, Twitter Divination, alerted me that "Your feed is influential on the topic of breakfast food." Good to know, I guess, considering that I'm a Serious Author.
So, the Christmas report. Here's my Christmas Tree, with Mom's present under it. I sort of love that it looks like Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree. We also had an Advent wreath this year: Sweet, right? Only yesterday I realized I didn't have a candle holder for the white candle in the middle, the one you [...]

Which is weird, because I don't like pomegranate juice, or any kind of flavoring. But the real thing? Had. To. Have. Some. Maybe it's because I don't [...]
