Re: You know you're an X-men geek if you... (Random funnies!

I have experimented in posting with fingers taped together. That being said, I had the cutest bonding moment with a new Nightcrawler fan at a convention over the weekend. I got to hold a four month old baby for a few moments, and in that time, I talked to him about comics and what's made them awesom...

Re: I asked Tom Brevoort about Nightcrawler

Another thing to consider is that this little fansite had enough impact to actually be mentioned in the letters page of Nightcrawler 12. Believe me, Marvel knows we exist. I consider it a possibility that, while they knew Nightcrawler was very well loved and had a lot of fans, they simply didn't get...

Re: this coffee tastes astounding!

So today, I helped save some kittens and a mama cat that got DUMPED at Rhode Island College. Given that the new additions to my family were rescues, how much they've already helped a grieving mama cat, and how much they've cheered up my whole family, I've got to say thank you for saving those kitti...

Re: this coffee tastes astounding!

So the day after my cat lost her litter of kittens, we found the perfect balm for her grief. A couple of nursling kittens in need of foster care took up residence in Stormageddon's basket. It looks like we'll actually be adopting them now, because Stormie is quite smitten with the new babies and is ...

The most heartbreaking thing is that Stormie (who thankfully is healthy depsite what she's endured and is likely to recov...

Horseback therapy was awesome today. My equine friend and I performed S-turns and tight circles for about an hour, and I could even stand some trotting before my leg told me we'd had enough.

I had not intended on this happening, but it being the miracle of life and all, I suppose it goes here. Because my cat was sick with an infection, we were told to wait until she recovered before we could get her fixed. Now that she's better, I thought I'd take her in to get that taken care of. No su...

Getting a nice little gig as a managing editor. I think that should keep me busy enough while my recovery continues- and then some.

Re: Teenager struggled with bullying before taking his life

This just completely broke my heart. While most of the people who die as a result of bullying have suffered from crushed spirits, I suppose it would do some good to remind society that bullying sometimes kills kids by more direct means. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/bullying-victim-bailey-dies...

You know what sucks almost as badly as getting in a car wreck? Discovering weeks later on your way to work that your brain has developed this tendency to replay the car wreck nearly every time you're at a busy intersection.
