Are my stories controversial? · 5:28pm Yesterday

Discuss.

No, seriously. Discuss.
In the Comments section, by yourselves.
I'm staying out of it.
It's not as if my opinion would matter on this one anyway.

Fifteen years later, a supposed adult used the real thing and sued · 4:21pm Last Thursday

We all have our little indulgences. On those rare occasions when I find myself at a craft fair, I often drop four dollars on a bar of handcrafted soap.

...it may be a good thing that I don't get to visit craft fairs very much. Actually, with coronavirus, there haven't really been any --

He wound up as a lumberjack and that was never okay · 9:30pm 6 days ago

I see the Dexter complete series set was listed as one of the Prime Day specials. That's odd. Amazon typically just uses the Movies/TV part of the sale as a stock dump for things which are getting new editions.

*Season 9 announced*

...oh.

Huh.

Let's watch some people die, shall we?

I'll bullet-point this one.

* No follow-through on getting the spinal procedure done early. They showed the previous MRIs to neurosurgery & orthopedics: every member of those two staffs mutually freaked out before running for their lives. The original doctor is apparently the only one who's willing to work on her, and that only after cardiac clearance. So still waiting for the echo on the 21st.

The Annual Prime Day Disappointment Comments Section (Covid October Edition) · 2:24pm October 13th

I've always said that it isn't Prime Day until Amazon puts The Land Before Time: Complete Movie Collection and the Dark Shadows Complete Series Set up on the Lightning Deal calendar, at negligible discounts, for an audience which, if remotely interested, purchased those things already.

I regret to say that it is now Prime Day.

No, I'm not linking them. As said, if you were interested, you own them. There may be no exceptions.

Bundle Of Bucking -- no, the Godot kind... · 2:21pm October 10th

Just wanted to put this one up for the Foglio fans.

A while back, I invoked the stories of Buck Godot (Zap Gun For Hire!) in a blog-ending image. This led to a brief discussion of the old works, along with how difficult they are to find right now.

Medical bullet point firing range · 8:26pm October 8th

I'm just going to bullet-point this. I'm too exhausted to do anything else, and if I try to get into the full emotional import of everything, I will silently fall over.

So, in shorthand...

* Her behavior has been odd for the last few days
* Such as counting, out loud, from one to twenty. Because she was afraid that if she stopped, she would forget how
* That was on and off for three hours
* The antibiotics for the last UTI wrapped up Monday. The counting was Sunday.

Oh, we'll just see about that, Coca-Cola. We'll see... · 1:43pm October 7th

Possibly The Final Postscript to the old My Coke Rewards program (at least until we find out if there's a holiday instant win game this year, and just how bad it is): all of those caps and box cutouts which some people still have lying around? The ones with the 14-character alphanumeric codes, being retained because sometimes Coke would still say things like 'First 20,000 people to input four each get a $2 gift card code' and hey, at least it's two dollars?
