January 19, 2006

I’ve decided I’m going to start a Thursday blog tradition of LOST venting, lol.*****LOST SPOILER ALERT***** “Who are we, to tell anyone what they can or can’t do.”–Locke Well, that was one testosterone-fest of an episode, a good ole-fashioned alpha-male showdown.

I’m an EmergenC junkie, so I tend to keep my immune system boosted and don’t get sick very often, thankfully. But the bug got me this […]

The Joys of Editing

January 11, 2006

Okay, so the manuscript probably won’t go out this week, lol. I’m making good progress on the latest revision, but I’m not trying to rush when something is this important.

For Us, By Us

January 10, 2006

So I was cruising around myspace one day and found the link to the coolest site. It’s basically a one-stop location for a variety of news articles of interest to People of Color. I’m not big on the news myself, as I find the mainstream news media to be hopelessly biased and/or disturbingly sensationalist, so […]
