I just realized something. When I vote in the SC primary, it will be the first time my vote will actually be relevant.

In all prior general elections I was voting in a state that was never going to be close. In all prior primaries, I was voting in a state where the result wasn't in doubt and where the primary took place to late to make a strong non winning showing worth dick.

But South Carolina, that's early in the process. I'm going to have to do some thinking on this.

As you have probably heard, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced do deah.

I am remarkably conflicted about this.

I have work to do, but I suspect I shall be writing about this later.
 
A jury in Boston voted Friday to execute Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, refuting his lawyers' argument that he was pulled into the plot by his radicalized Muslim older brother and overcoming Massachusetts' popular opposition to the death penalty. #bostonbombing   #DzhokharTsarnaev   #BostonMarathon

I just watched the #AgentsofShield finale. It was phenomenal and heartbreaking.

Poor Fitz.

And from a writing craft standpoint, it's phenomenal how they built an entire season of a superhero spy show around the question of how far we go for love.

And for those of you who saw it, did you notice the evil Whedonism at the end?

Maybe I'm missing myself, but I think Simmons might be recruited for a new team next season.

People doing stupid shit in Revere Beach? I'm shocked!
 
"Brawl" in headlines, the correct: "Riot" was used in the news piece.

Police say more than 100 people were involved in a fight near the band stand on Revere Beach

Hey, if any of you have mothers, you might be interested in this Mother's Day e-book sale from +Curiosity Quills Press.

I haven't read everything here, but I have read Going Through the Change which I read mostly because it's a menopausal superhero novel and who can resist something like that?

It's fun. You should read it. Or, you know, get it for your mother or something.
 
Late shopper for Mother's Day? Check out this book sale! Going Through the Change and several other wonderful titles from +Curiosity Quills Press are on sale for 99 cents all weekend!

I have the last four episodes of Gotham sitting on my DVR and I'm ambivalent about watching them.

So... Should I bother watching the last four episodes of Gotham, Season One?

I write stuff. Maybe you'll like it.
Introduction
In first grade, my teacher asked the kids to vote on what book she was going to read to us during story time. I raised my hand for one thing. The entire rest of the class raised their hand for The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

I have been holding minority opinions and reading fantasy stories ever since.
Bragging rights
I survived the Blizzard of '78 with the most awesome snow forts ever.
