The Qomolangma Sentinel

My dieselpunk/teslapunk story is slow-going because of a few things:

1. I have a lot of studying for work (that I really should be doing right meow),

2. I’m essentially a single mom for a while, and

3. I have writer’s block.

I also have a post prepared about what a crock of shit writer’s block is. I know, that sounds crazy. Wait for it. đŸ˜€ Continue reading

Teh Facebukz

On June 1st, I started a 30-day Facebook fast. It’s been going well so far. I deleted the app off my phone and logged out on my computer and all that. It’s actually been better than I thought it would be, although I’ve been using other social media more than I usually do (Pinterest WTF?).

I just remembered that practically all my social media is connected and cross-posts and all that. So every time I make a post here, or on Tumblr, or whatever, it cross-posts to Facebook. So to the casual observer on Facebook, it looks like I never left.

Heh. Whoops.

I’m too lazy to change my settings, so my blog posts will still keep showing up on Facebook throughout the month. Whee!

Music Monday: Heaven Knows

I heard this song on the radio a few days ago and I was digging it instantly. The lead singer is Taylor Momsen, who was in the Jim Carey version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. She’s grown up well. I love her voice!

I’m in a language class this month. Yay!

No seriously, yay, I love Farsi! I love Persian food even more. Mmmmm kubideh. Put it in my moouuuffff.

Anyway, the point of mentioning that is that, with both my Farsi class and my new teslapunk novel with Oriental flair, I might go a little overboard with posting Middle and Near Eastern stuff. So get ready for carpets and mosaics, y’all!
