- Storiteller covered a wide range of subjects the past few weeks, from major geekery to being outdoorsy.
- In Cosplay for Beginners – With Toddlers! she covers the ups, downs, major challenges, and lessons learned in developing Guardians of the Galaxy costumes for Baltimore Comic Con. She never thought helping her husband look like a tree, her son like a raccoon, and herself as an alien, would be so rewarding and difficult.
- A Nature Playground in the Suburbs: Constitution Gardens Park in Gaithersburg describes her and her son’s first time visiting visiting a local park that’s been converted to have a focus on natural elements instead of using pre-made plastic pieces.
- Her guest post at the Simplicity Parenting blog, The Evening Walk, chronicle the slow pace and simple pleasures of her walks to a nearby pedestrian bridge to watch the commuter trains go by with her toddler son.
- The Outdoors Guide’s Guide to Parenting takes much of what she’s learned as both being led by very good guides and sometimes being one applies it to parenting. From being flexible to evaluating risk to respecting your own children’s skills and interests, there’s a lot of similarities in the adventure of being a parent and going on a hike.

- I still don’t have a primary computer but I was able to get a greater variety of topics covered. Sort of. If this weren’t three days late that wouldn’t be true.
- Stephanie Meyer, in honor of the 10th anniversary of Twilight wrote a gender-flipped version of the story I’m not really sure how I feel about her choosing to call female-Edward a variation of “Edith”.
- In response to that news, I put all existing Edith and Ben in order in a single post, for your reading pleasure.
- I have a new computer on the way, I talked about that, bad imaging for a recruitment office, the cult of exclusionary technology, and a crow making a sound I didn’t know crows made in a post called, “Another computer update and since when do crows chirp?.”
- I asked what the bubbles are when I heat honey, I noticed that there was something in my walls, though at the time I wasn’t sure if it was in the walls or it might be insidpe the room. I wrote about the first good news to come out of my university in I don’t even know how long and also a translation of Catullus you should get. I talked about something that certain self-appointed defenders of the game Human Revolution do that frustrates me greatly.
