THEORIES ABOUT THE UNIVERSE 

I am trying to see things in perspective.
My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter
chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot
have this, because chocolate makes dogs
very sick. My dog does not understand this.
She pouts and wraps herself around my leg
like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me
to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in,
she eventually gives up and lays in the corner,
under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the
universe has my best interest in mind like I have
my dogs. When I want something with my whole
being, and the universe withholds it from me,
I hope the universe thinks to herself: “Silly girl.
She thinks this is what she wants, but she
does not understand how it will hurt.”

— Theories About the Universe (Blythe Baird)

Good mornthing!

Younger Spawn is learning a valuable lesson today about not leaving his 4-page double-sided math homework until the day before it is due. He was up late working on it, and finishing it at breakfast this morning. Late for school is, at this point, inevitable.

Today is packed for me, yet I feel oddly calm. What a to-do, to do today:

get the lad to school- -start my laundry- -get dressed
go to the thrift shop for pants/shorts for Elder, who has abruptly grown out of everything that fit him three days ago
go to booze shop
- fill gas tank
- pack the boys' bags
pack my bag
text +Katey Springle Lempka to make sure accurate
- load the car
- drive the boys west
- drive to Balticon
- plus a big thesis push before departure

I am so tired of the thesis pressure. It is flattening everything, and not in an ontological way.

“With regard to what kind of beings do we speak of something outstanding? The expression means indeed what “belongs” to a being, but is still lacking. Outstanding, as lacking, is based on a belongingness.”

- Heidegger, Being and Time (Stambaugh translation) p225

“The analysis of “one dies” reveals unambiguously the kind of being of everyday being and death. In such talk, death is understood as an indeterminate something which first has to show up from somewhere, but which right now is not yet objectively present for oneself, and thus no threat. “One dies” spreads the opinion that death, so to speak, strikes the they.” 

- Heidegger, Being and Time (Stambaugh translation) p234

I never expected to find his examination of death to be so weirdly comforting.

I think that I like the solution VW chose for my '14 jetta... "Well, the ABS sensors tell us how the wheels are rolling, so let's just use that instead of an actual pressure monitor. Much cheaper, and the doodad has been there for years" :) its a delightfully lazy/elegant solution, unless you want to know what actual tire has what actual pressure... :D

No. I find most reviewers opinions greatly differ from mine and I don't like spoilers.

Good mornthing!

Something crucial in my thesis chapter clicked as I lay in bed. It means throwing out most of what I already have and rebuilding the chapter from the ground up, but it's a much stronger concept/argument. Heidegger and Being-toward-death, woo!

I have to have the whole thing written by the beginning of next week, and this weekend is Balticon with 8 hours driving each way. I'm going to bust out as much of this as possible today. Expect progress updates.

Today is my last day working my Assistantship. ::sadcake::

OhmyZod Balticon. I get to see +Katey Springle Lempka! Shenanigans! Eeee!

Any of you folks coming?

Story
Tagline
Hey cool. You found me.
Introduction
You've found the right Bliss - the one that makes shiny things, and soft things, and knots things together. The one that paints things and sings things. The one that writes very very naughty things. The one that likes a little slap and tickle, especially when the slap makes her gasp. The one that is bringing hashtags into meatspace. The one that told you that funny little joke that one time. The one that earworms you.

Yeah. That Bliss.

This is my Amazon wishlist. Because people keep asking.


My books:

Nightmare Fuel: A collection of creepypasta flash fiction plucked from the mind in a wild attempt to stave off an annual influx of sleepdep-inducing nightmares. From werewolves to walking statues to the question of humanity in tiny alien cephalopods, there's fuel aplenty for your own nightmares from under the bed.

Bits of Bliss: "Bits of Bliss is a delicious dish. It is smart, evocative and sensual. It flirts and teases, turns you around and on - and it does it in all the best ways. It's also incredibly addictive. ...there's nothing quite so sexy as erotica like this: one that thinks of itself as literature first and sexually explicit as an added spice." Erotic Flashfiction collection.

Dance Me: It's the kind of night that's a young woman's dream - pretty dresses, delicious food, amazing music, an unexpected gorgeous dance partner, and explosions. Okay, maybe her dream didn't include the explosions.

Spider GirlYet despite knowing there were zombies out there somewhere, from the news brought by the occasional traveller, survivalist Charlotte finds herself unprepared for the unannounced arrival of one undead creature at her cabin - and entirely unready for the truth it brings along with it.

Beneath the Jolly RogerEveryone knows the story. A lovely lady is kidnapped from a sinking ship; a dashing pirate captain saves her and, through a series of adventures, they become intertwined in a web of romance. This is not one of those stories.

Being viewed trying a new food is apparently like watching food porn. (Somewhat relevantly, I've also been told "There's a fine line between flirting, play, and harassment. Your line seems to be farther out than most.") ~~~ “Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix.” — Karen Marie Moning
