Storiteller indulged in some culture the last two weeks. In Book Club: Where the Wild Things Are, she thinks about how reading the book as an adult has shaped her parenting. In Portrait of a Young Art Appreciator, she writes about visiting a Van Gogh exhibit with her baby and some lessons learned. Thinking about the usefulness of structure in their lives in To Schedule or Not to Schedule.

An anti-abortion advocate on Twitter finally found out the terrible truth, Ana Mardoll and I are the same person. That’s why she’s almost always got multiple deconstruction posts per week and mine go on unscheduled months long hiatuses regularly. That why she lives in the Texas and I live in Maine. That’s why… I wrote a post about it is the point.
I got part four of the Princess Story written.
For those who know a bit about Resident Evil but not a great deal, a little explanation might be in order. The live action movies are tangentially related to the games and the main character isn’t from the games at all. The computer generated movies, like Resident Evil: Degeneration, are in the same continuity as the games and cover stories that go on at times when the games don’t. I recently watched Resident Evil: Degeneration and posted some thoughts on it. (For example, when was the last time you saw a female character choose not to be an action hero not because of lack of ability compared to male characters, but because she had other priorities?)
I did a short bit of Skewed Slightly to the Left: Cameron calling for help.
