I'm not saying my dog is smarter than me. Because that would be embarrassing.
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… Continue reading On the Second Day of Christmas…
Here's what's floating my boat this week. Why? Because "Friday Faves" sounds cool. 1. Gillian Flynn. This is not a YA author. (Not by any stretch of the imagination.) She writes books about grisly murders and really twisted up characters. Her book Gone Girl is a best seller, and deservedly so.

Here's another field trip for you guys: http://www.cakewrecks.com. I just discovered this site, which is apparently pretty popular. Late to the party as usual, I guess. (It was a winner of the 2008 Bloggies.) Since I love the Cake decorating challenges on the Food Network so much (not to mention Ace of Cakes), finding a… Continue reading Let Them Eat Cake
I had the weirdest craving yesterday-- for pomegranate of all things. (Heh. I misspelled that, and it autocorrected to "Pomeranian" which would have been an entirely different post.) 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… Continue reading On Pomegranates and Pomeranians
