I’m actually rather grateful for questions when they come in, because I haven’t had to deal with writer’s block in weeks. They’re prompts and they give the entries some structure. Even if they’re talking about painful stuff. Don’t think that’s all the blog has become, though. I have actually been working on a few new posts, including a couple of new Spoilerific reviews. But in the meantime…
You’ve been hearing about me for a long time. Andy called me “Louise,” which really is my middle name. I am the woman who was accused of leaving him after seven years, taking my son “Connor” away from Andy, who loved Connor as his own. I am the girl in the painting.
Hey all! I’m just popping in to let you know that you can now reach my blog at www.kumquatwriter.com! Awesome, right? So update your bookmarks now; eventually I will migrate the entire site to my own servers.
One of the biggest lessons I learned through all that I’ve been through is to live with gratitude. Today seems like an apt day to discuss it.
Of course I’m sick the week of Thanksgiving. Lovely. I feel like my head is slowly filling with Miracle Whip, and I am pretty sure I must have deep-throated a bottle brush in my sleep last night. Ugh. The boy is stuffy and uncomfortable too, although he’s still a little ray of sunshine most of the time. Except when I pull out the snot-sucker; then he freaks right the fuck out.
After all these years of people asking about Project Elanor, Tentmoot, and the internal workings of Bit of Earth, I assumed that’s what people want to hear about. But the response I’ve gotten, both in the comments of Questions and Answers and privately, seems to indicate that people are less interested in those aspects of the scandal these days. This is fine with me, as I realize more and more that is a post best left for after Jeanine and I have a chance to talk about what went down. I think I don’t know as much about what went down as I think I do.
Lets get this out of the way: I fucking hate Twilight.
I’d like to start talking about Project Elanor and the rest of Bit of Earth, but I’m going to invite a little reader participation first. Crazy talk, I know, but there’s so much I have yet to write about that I’m looking for a little guidance from the people who want to read about it most.
Reviewing a documentary is really different from reviewing a film. I can’t take you through it point by point, and I can’t sum up the story. Especially the kind of documentary that explores some weird niche of society. And I am a total junkie for that kind of doc. Professional Scrabble tournament? I’m in. The personal drama of LARPers? Absolutely. World record high score for Donkey Kong? Oh, it’s ON.
My friend Tova, the goddess of awesomeness, has finally gotten me to sign up for her fabulous website. I will be taking her “muchness” challenge this January as a birthday gift to myself. Check it out, it’s worth the time. Or as Tova would say, “Get in touch with the much!”
