Zombie cranberry juice

      Comments Off on Zombie cranberry juice

My cranberry juice went bad. =( Cranberry juice should last forever. Why doesn’t it? I now am worrying that the people who pick up our recycling are going to be judging me for recycling a cranberry juice bottle with an expiration date of September…of last year. YES I HAD CRANBERRY JUICE SITTING AROUND IN MY FRIDGE FOR OVER A YEAR… Read more »

      Comments Off on I forgot the bra. Bad Katje.

I’m delaying the release of Stranger Skies in paperback by a month. It was supposed to be out by Halloween, but my editor has found a bunch of things that got missed in the last round of edits, so those need to be fixed before we can release a paperback.

On Saturday, I spent perhaps an hour and a half crying — no, sobbing, raging with tears in my eyes, lamenting my situation to the heavens above.

Whatever Wednesday: Sewing woes

      Comments Off on Whatever Wednesday: Sewing woes

Aside from the sewing machine I showed y’all on Monday, I also have a Singer 513 Stylist at my house (the older one I bought is currently at my boyfriend’s place). I managed to get this one working yesterday and started work on my costume for this weekend. (Yes, I realize it’s cutting it close. Don’t judge me.) Well, at… Read more »
