Invested in Critical Role — Bizarre Brunette

The first time I heard Critical Role mentioned was at Gen Con in 2019. The cast of Critical Role was appearing and my friend was thrilled. He had tickets to go and he said it was the highlight of his convention. Earlier this year, I figured I’d watch the first episode on Youtube because why […]Continue reading “Invested in Critical Role — Bizarre Brunette”

Hobbity Cheer for New Year’s — BookmarkedOne

So I was up until almost 1:00 this morning watching The Return of the King. You could pretend to be surprised. The odyssey started on January 30th. This year a few loved ones and I decided to complete the challenge–to line it all up so Theoden says “So it begins” as the clock strikes twelve. […]Continue reading “Hobbity Cheer for New Year’s — BookmarkedOne”

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December…

The title of this blog entry of course comes from what is perhaps Poe’s mostContinue reading “Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December…”

I dreamt of blogging, so I guess I’ll blog about dreaming

I grew up in a two bedroom apartment in New York City, on the third floor of an old five storey brick building, with my single mother and younger sister. I spent my entire childhood, my formative years, in that apartment, in that building, on that street, through my teens and well into my earlyContinue reading “I dreamt of blogging, so I guess I’ll blog about dreaming”

Another Power Outage

Last night there was a storm with high winds, so I was prepared for the power to go out again. Not prepared in the sense of having bought a backup generator, because let’s face it, given how the pandemic is going, that’s not about to happen any time soon. But I had a cooler ready,Continue reading “Another Power Outage”
