In the age of body dsyphoria, try to capture and celebrate any moments you can of body euphoria. Thank you, body, for being what I need, for getting me where I need to go, for housing my experiences and thoughts. Have you ever felt like this?
Who wants to play a minimalist game? Anybody brave enough to do this with me? I’m thinking I could use this framework to get through edits on manuscripts I’ve been neglecting and recycle the pages I’ve reviewed.
It’s not what we buy, it’s why. And: can you define your dream wardrobe style in just three words? Mine might include words like: colorful/bright, movement/flow, pockets, happy, easy to modify ie “convertible,” and maybe flowers…

You know my eyes were drawn to the rainbow design, but this was super interesting!
May, Jun, Jul
My netbook of many years (5? 6? 7?) got stepped on and I had to get a new one.
I got to go to Hot Springs, including Taco Mama and Fat Bottomed Girls.
two new cats joined our family, June and Spot
Memphis, IKEA, and the book sale.
Mermaids, lesbians, wholesale slaughter? How could I turn down a peek into Mira Grant’s Into the Drowning Deep. It was a smart, fast vivid vivisection of this mythic legend’s oft neglected scientific underbelly!
Continuing with the gay theme, Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is the Potter / Draco fanfic we absolutely knew we needed! But that’s not all it is, because Rowell has her own magical story to tell, too.
I’m continuing my way through Jussi Adler-Olsen‘s series, Department Q, and I’m currently on book 5 of 7. I was startled to realized this series is kept under “mystery” at my local library since I’ve always thought of it as “crime drama,” but I guess that’s just a subcategory!
Another series I’ve been working on is the Laurell K. Hamilton Anita Blake series. I’m on book three but have been for ages and haven’t really been reading at all lately. What’s going on up there, Brain? But I’ve been up to a lot else, so I guess I’ll give myself some slack.
What are you reading? How’s your summer been?
P. S. 50 Book Pledge has a new look!
