Getting Drunk and Losing Sleep Are Good For Creativity?

March 27, 2012 by


Arkem: Is Pan doing better after the transplant? Me: He is feeling so much better. At least I think he is. Right now he thinks he’s Bob. But we’re working on that. Arkem: We’re all a little groggy after surgery. Me: Yeah, hopefully he will be fine by tonight. Or tomorrow anyway. Which will be […]

The Death and Rebirth of my Life/Work/Writing/Soul/Addiction

March 20, 2012 by


Okay, today, today I love Apple. I think they are brilliant and wondrous and shiny. Which is a big step up from yesterday where I wanted to hit them with something heavy. There’s a lesson here — the highs are never quite as atmospheric until you’ve crawled through the gutter. Or something. Cause see yesterday, […]

White Blank Page

January 23, 2012 by


I am suffering from a rather severe form of blank page syndrome right now. My laptop (the lamented Pan Narrans) is falling apart again. Gracefully, but dramatically. So I’m using my backup laptop, which, after the last Pan debacle is at least installed with a relatively current OS and the most important programs. But otherwise, […]

I Might Have Accidentally Sold My Soul, But That Doesn’t Mean There’s No Room to Negotiate

January 9, 2012 by

There’s something wrong there… But while I’m banging my head against the wall, I offer you this video of gorgeousness because I’d much rather be staring […]

Two Steps Forward, Eight or Nine Steps Around the Mulberry Bush and a Couple Down the Rabbit Hole

December 7, 2011 by


There was a moment — and it was an awesome beautiful moment — when there were only four tabs open in my browser. And for that brief instant (okay, it was Wednesday, most of Wednesday) I thought I’d somehow gotten it together. That I was not in fact drowning, despite the whole ‘it’s December’ situation. […]

My Laptop and I Are Fighting Again

December 6, 2011 by


Me: Pan and I are fighting again. Claire: What does he want this time? Me: To drive me insane as far as I can tell. Paul S: It’s working. Me: Thanks. (sigh) At least you didn’t say I’m already insane. Which I thought was quite kind of them given they’d been hearing screaming and assorted […]
