...but if you aren't family and you aren't a close friend, it's not my responsibility to sacrifice my own emotional well-being in order to facilitate yours. (It may not be my responsibility in those other cases, either; but those waters are murkier, and I'm unwilling to claim that it's never... Continue reading

My wife's friend, Rob, has four Planet of the Apes comic books, matted, safely encased in a big-ass frame, gracing his kitchen wall just between the foyer and the pantry. I have a huge case of envy. See, it was only a few decades ago that my wife, nerd-girl that... Continue reading

(Or, "Hey Look! Cool Retro-ish Mac Wallpapers... Er, Desktop Pics!") Because when I sat down this morning at the desk I share with my wife, and tapped the space bar to knock the iMac out of dreamland, my dock stayed solid white for several seconds before flashing back to its... Continue reading

We probably shouldn't even try to be friends. If you later reassure me that I'm OK, now, since I'm no longer homeless, skip the "probably". Being given resources didn't change who I am. #truestory Related articles Wow! This blog still exists!?! Continue reading

I've spent most of my comic-reading life being a non-fan of Superman. Granted, that life started no earlier than 1975 and ended no later than 1981. It wasn't resurrected until 2014, so this is not a post geared toward anyone who's actually kept up with the character, or comics in... Continue reading

So, technically, the kraken was probably a giant squid, and this is clearly a clever octopus, complete with toothy sock puppet! It's still a cephalopod, it's still in a frame, and it's still a helluva lot bigger than that poor little boat! It's also the first piece of original art... Continue reading

This is the first time I've had my own work framed and hung (unless you count buying frames and painting the glass). #derwent #Inktense #done A photo posted by Sharonda Woodfin (@broken_baja) on Feb 4, 2015 at 6:56am PST Continue reading

I'm very surprised by that. I don't think that Typepad even offers Typepad Micro accounts, anymore. I'm almost afraid to upgrade this account, but I'm thinking hard about it! I actually logged in to play with a Typepad free trial and maybe set up a new blog, but finding this... Continue reading

I've been bathing in dog shampoo for a while, now. As dog shampoos go, it's rather nice. Hell, it's nicer than most human shampoos. It smells like green tea and bergamot and feels like posh. But I ran out a few days ago. I texted my SO to ask if... Continue reading

This is a screenshot from the website of California's secretary of state: For those of you with tiny screens or visual impairments: The text above states that filing for a domestic partnership in the state of California costs $10. Unless it's a same-sex partnership. Then it costs $33. Yep. More... Continue reading

The Kindle Fire is nice, right out of the box (especially for the price), but there are a few improvements you can make over the stock applications, without rooting the device. And the first improvement you should make is installing Opera Mobile. In order to do this, you'll need to... Continue reading

Not only is this the first book I've read on my Kindle Fire, it's also the first bit of fiction I've read in years that wasn't based on Xena: Warrior Princess, in some form or fashion. Marta Szemik's Marked: A Two Halves Novella doesn't have any of the lesbian subtext... Continue reading

Glory be! There's a post up on Get Satisfaction where a TypePad employee asks about people using TypePad on Android! And it specifically mentions the Kindle Fire! I'm the only person who's responded, so far -- boo, y'all! -- but this isn't an issue of small concern. Blogging has become... Continue reading

Being poor is worse than being homeless. That may be the biggest lesson I've learned in the journey I started last November. I used to sit at home, flat busted, wondering how I was going to feed my mom, my dog, and myself, and I'd comfort myself with the thought... Continue reading

Still no rich text editor, but it's very, very different from using TypePad via Silk. Sorry for the unwieldy title and lack of screenshots. Bigger fish, y'all! Continue reading

Like right now. I'm writing this post from the Amazon Kindle Fire I picked up at Walmart, today (complete with a $50 Walmart card included in the standard Kindle Fire price). So far, it isn't going smoothly. I'm writing in raw HTML mode because Typepad's rich text editor won't let... Continue reading
