Sorry about the lack of posts this week.

The last couple weeks have been crazy between work (end of semester panic brings lots of people to tutoring and we got swamped) and family stuff (grandparent died & other things).

Things should be settled down enough to get something back this Sunday.

Apologies 2

Sorry for the lack of updates, folks.  A bit bummed here, to say the least.

But, that’s sorta what happens when your President-elect names an anti-Semitic white supremacist as his chief strategist and names a Secretary of Education who wants to use the department to punish any school he considers to be ideologically lacking.  Not to mention the fact that it’s becoming increasingly clear that he a) didn’t actually want the job, just the ego boost and b) has no clue what he’s gotten himself into.

Anyway, I’ll try to get back to updates today or tomortow.


First, I’m sorry for this as I try not to do political posts here.

Second, to the world: On behalf of the U.S., I’m sorry for the stupid thing we just did.

Third, to the UK: I’m sorry, the Colonies are reclaiming the World’s Dumbest Vote award.  Pres. Donnie beats out a non-binding Brexit vote, I’m afraid.




Things have been a touch crazy here the last week.

Between the U.S. holiday Monday, getting into the second week of kindergarten with the Little Guy, and my semester starting (with more hours at work than anticipated, which means a bigger paycheck, woohoo!) . . . it’s been crazy.

But, I’ve gotten more writing done in the last couple days than in the previous month.  And I will try to get something more substantial posted this weekend, though I work tomorrow (possibly trying to rectify that, keep the hours, but reassign them to different days so I don’t have a six day work week).

Game Days: Origins Game Fair 2016

Interjecting some non-writing life here . . .

Next week, June 15th, is the Origins Game Fair.  I’ve attended for one day each a few years in the past, played some great demos, picked up a few tabletop games and some cheap (going out of print) RPG books, and generally enjoyed event.

Even got drawn into a brief wargaming scenario during my first year attending.

This year’s going to be different.

This year I’m taking a five year old for his first (technically second, but the first he’ll remember) time, then I’ll go back another day on my own.  So, we’ll see how this goes.  He loves games and seems rather  excited, so that’s good.  We’ll see what he thinks of Michael Stackpole and Timothy Zahn.

With any luck, he’ll enjoy himself and this will become an annual semi-family thing.
