# I've created a monster... and she woke up at 5 am to make us pancakes. Blue pancakes. And a lovely mess in the kitchen.

Each year we look back to the rows behind us and make note that there seems to be a few more empty seats than the year previous.

Significantly different from my last two reads in that (a) it was written in the last decade and (b) it’s hard science fiction.

Ad(non)Sense

I’ve been avoiding putting advertising on this site for many years. Something about it has always seemed a little… I don’t know… dirty. As if I’m writing to generate a profit rather than writing for the sake of writing. But the nudge has finally come. I pay for all this out of my own pocket, but once again, my hosting fees have gone up by a tiny little amount, my domain registration fees have pushed up a tiny bit, and the more I write the more hits I get and … blah, blah, blah… money, costs, whatever and all those things you don’t care about. I don’t expect to actually turn a profit or anything, but I’ve opted to put adverts on my static pages (because a couple of those are generating hundreds of hits per week) and hopefully the trickle of pennies that doing so generates will keep this blog online for a few more years. Hopefully you’re not nearly as offended as I am.

Dopey Eve… One Year Later

While I suppose the actual race has begun, one year ago on this date I was wandering through a theme park in Florida and nervous with anticipation for the four following days of the Dopey Challenge. It’s not quite as daunting, but another Disney race is technically on our horizon in the squeeeeelingly-close future. But I still feel a little awed that Dopey was a year ago already. Geeze!

Is peak spicy tied somehow to the sensitivity of the sensory organs and how they change as one ages?

Literally, the dog whining. In a more abstract sense, the looming uncertainty of an unknowable future.
