The Blogaround

  • chris the cynic wrote:
    • Walmart simultaneously closed five stores on false pretenses (for six months), citing nonexistent plumbing problems, and Fred Clark suggested we come up with explanations less depressing than worker suppression.  So I did.  Pretty standard fiction fragment.
    • Jerry Jenkins never tells us what the mundane, presumably pre-Rapture, messages on Rayford’s answering machine were.  So I wrote some that seemed probable.  Definitely not Skewed Slightly to the Left, more the sort of thing I’d expect from the characters as written.
    • I wrote the eighth installment of Being more than a Simulacrum, in which Leela Place Possible meets some of Kim’s old friends.
    • A few days after my nephew was born I started writing a post about the events surrounding his birth.  There were people in strange costumes (including a man with antlers), there was the thing were we almost burned down the maternity ward (it was an honest popcorn mistake), there were questionable things done with medical equipment, there was music.  It was, in general, the sort of things where you want pictures and or video to prove that you’re not making it up.  Two years ago today I stopped writing the post.  I just got distracted and had to do other things.  The computer the pictures were on broke down, files were misplaced, and nothing happened.  But then, on my nephew’s second birthday, I finally finished that post about the events surrounding his birth.  Complete with pictures and video.
