Update: Life and Books (May 2022) + Mermay Art!

I promised you art last month, so here it is: a starfish merman pole dancing! I think I like the bent arm better, but I made both, so I might as well share both. I struggled A LOT with the drawing of this one, but I love how the tail makes such interesting shapes, and I feel like coloring has gotten less stressful and more fun for me. I like to imagine there's a band nearby playing some pretty...

Love to Listen: 5 Funny SFF Podcasts to Check Out (2) – Dungeons & Daddies, Who Killed Avril Lavigne?, The Two Princes, & More

Two years ago I recommended some funny sci-fi/fantasy podcasts, and I'm back with more! I started listening to podcasts because of a head nerve problem I developed, I needed things to listen to that didn't require looking at, but now I just really like podcasts. I like having something when I need a break from books. I like bingeing them, but I also like being caught up and having a new...

Update: Life and Books (Apr 2022)

This hasn't been the best month for me. I mean, what month has been lately, for most people? But still. It was also my birthday, but I didn't do anything special. Couldn't even if I felt up to it, what with the pandemic and all. Anyway, unable to focus on much, I've watched a lot of baking shows on Netflix. They're a nice distraction, and I've rarely come across one I didn't like. "Is It...

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2022)

So I didn't do anything particularly exciting since my last update, but I did play some new games! I did a free trial of Utomik, a game subscription program. It's only $6.99 a month, and it has more games I want to try, so I'd like to go back at some point. (Just not right away because my head/eyes and arms really need a break.) Darkside Detective and the sequel were great. Point-and-click...

Update: Life and Books (Feb 2022)

I know February isn’t quite over, but I didn’t feel like trying to figure out another post for today, so we’re doing this one early. And since the world is not doing great right now, and I’m not doing great right now, and a lot of people aren’t doing great right now, I’ve decided to...

Update: Life and Books (Jan 2022)

New year, same old everything else? For me, at least. I don't really have any news to report. I sent my sims on another vacation, since there was a Sims 4 Snowy Escape free trial. Unlike their Island Living vacation which was pretty chill, this one was full of snowboarding, skiing, hiking, and mountain climbing. But my sims are active sims, so they had an absolute blast. Every time a new Sims...

Update: Life and Books (Dec 2021) + Last Art of the Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! I don't know why I said that with so much enthusiasm. I don't actually feel enthusiastic about it. But it's still a new year, regardless of how I feel, so *shrug* I managed to squeeze in one last finished art piece though, and I am enthusiastic about that! It's Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Centaur! (His nose gets cold.) (Also technically he's a cervitaur.) I'm...

Update: Life and Books (Nov 2021)

I can't believe I have to think of yet another intro. I don't do anything, this is too hard! Quick reminder, if you're doing any holiday shopping online, I have affiliate/referral links, and it helps me make a small bit of money or get my own free trials/books/etc. if you use them, at no additional cost to you! As for what I actually did this month... I started and finished playing Milky...

Update: Life & Books (Oct 2021)

Happy Halloween! Even though I'm not actually doing anything to celebrate. It's just a normal Sunday for me. Last month I was telling everyone to watch Dragonheart (which you still should, if you haven't). This month I'm telling everyone to watch Sunshine (2007)! It was another rewatch, about 11 years since I'd last seen this one. It's such a fantastic sort of sci-fi thriller. It absolutely...

Random Musings: Slightly Spooky/Creepy/Horror-ish Books, Games, Movies, & More for Scaredy Cats

I know it's a bit late this year since October is almost over, but blog posts are timeless! And perhaps I'll add to this list in the future if I discover more slightly spooky stuff to recommend (which is why I included the "and more" bit, since I might end up adding podcasts or something), since who knows if I'll ever find enough in the future to make a whole part two. Anyway, I don't normally...
