The Blogaround

  • These last two weeks, Storiteller introduced her child to a new cuisine (and promptly worried about it being cultural appropriation), had a birthday, and received an awesome present.
    She also introduced a new Friday feature, What I’m Reading This Week. In the first week, she featured articles on pregnancy and work discrimination, the many absurdities of choosing a preschool, refugee camps in Jordan, the Flint water crisis, and the PBS mid-90s show Ghostwriter.  The second week highlighted articles on teaching kids to make good decisions, cultural appropriation of food, trans issues, and Marxist sustainability.

    • Primary computer went from “You’ll need to take me in to be fixed soon, but no hurry” to “It’s so hard to use me it’s not even worth it,” in a hurry when parts of the keyboard failed.
    • As a result of the above I didn’t get any fiction written, but I did manage to find something that I’d already written elsewhere but not yet posted to Stealing Commas.  It’s a very rough first draft resulting from the writing prompt: “Write for 30 uninterrupted minutes on, inspired by, or about the phrase, ‘The Siege of Middleton‘.”
    • I shared a video of a The Producers style take on the rise of Donald Trump.
    • I had two posts that were basically feelings dumps.  Not good feelings.  One was about how I constantly seem to be stuck and unable to do even simple things, the other was about my financial situation which, as anyone who’s been reading for a while knows, is always bleak even in the relatively good times.
