The Bookworm Tag~ In Which I Try To Figure Out What A Solid Book Is, And My Sense Of Humor Includes Squash

Hullo, everyone!

I have been tagged by the illustrious Elizabeth Hyde @Trivialities for the Bookworm Tag! I am very grateful for this, because tags are generally faster to execute than regular posts, and the time is just NOT HERE this week, so… yup.Hopefully I can come up with some marginally entertaining responses to her lovely questions, but we shall have to see.

An Ode To Curmudgeons

Hey there, folks!

Today I draw your attention to that lovable specimen known commonly as the “Grump”, the “Grouch” or the “Curmudgeon.” My list ranges from part-time grumps to Hard-Core Curmudgeons (and may include one or two people that I just wanted an excuse to mention, if I’m being honest here).

Another Year Has Come And Gone~ In Which I Consumed Stories (As Is My Custom) And Evidently 2022 Is Upon Us

Hello, my friends!

I hope you all had a splendid Christmas and got to spend quality time with all those crazy people we call friends and family and eat too many cookies and sing in four-part harmony (more or less) about the miracle of Christ’s birth and maybe even enjoy some snow (we have TONS of it and it’s beautiful but also DRIVING in it is kind of a NIGHTMARE).
