things i am vaguely obsessed with, february 2014

an unnumbered list of current miscellaneous obsessions Ben & Jerry’s Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt. I love lemon flavored sweet things anyway and this might be my new favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor, we tried it in Vermont and I’ve been hunting for it in NYC (found it today, yay!). Snoods. I blame the weather […]

things i *heart* right now

This is an unnumbered list of things I really like right now. Snapshot of the happy-making tastes and sights and sounds of mid-August, 2013.   Homemade scones with maple butter. I love scones but had never made one I really loved until recently. I finally found a perfect scone recipe, this one from smitten kitchen. […]

a bunny and a raven

So remember back in May when I fell in art love with Ellen Jewett’s sculptures? I ordered a custom one. It arrived today. She does what she calls “creature stacks” so I asked for a raven and a white bunny and mostly left the rest of it up to her interpretation. I could not possibly […]

miscellaneous post of miscellany with fluffy cows

This post has no rhyme or reason unless accidental rhymes sneak in and also there’s a cow at the end. But I had a lot of things to post so I figured I would put them all in one post and they can keep each other company. Firstly and likely most importantly, the high-pitched noise […]

art love: ellen jewett

I found Ellen Jewett‘s sculptures via Tumblr this morning and fell promptly in art love harder than I have in quite awhile. More creatures can be found on her website, deviantART & custom work is available from her Etsy store. And of course I couldn’t resist ordering a custom piece. I am giddily excited to see what she comes […]

In the meantime, randomness collected in themeless post form. Mostly links. I really liked this piece about The Importance of Endings […]

two things with links

First thing: I wrote this brief, passionate yet ill-fated romance for Stylist magazine. I wrote the story and then they styled the photo shoot based on what I’d written and I love what they did with it. I tried to keep it a bit open-ended and vague so they’d have room to play with the images […]

a few things and a few photos

This Saturday September 1st (how is it September already?) I will be at the Decatur Book Festival. As far as I know, I will be babbling at the First Baptist Decatur Sanctuary Stage at 4:15pm and this will include signing things. There is an interview with me featuring hostile questions from Daniel Kraus over here on Booklist. (He signed […]

a slightly belated happy banned books week

I was thinking of doing a post for Banned Books Week, even though a billion other people have said smarter, wiser things about book banning than I could ever manage. I was only going to babble something about how I’m one of those weird people who actually really likes The Catcher in the Rye, partially […]

Eep.

Hi. I have been completely useless. I keep squealing at people on the phone when I’m not rendered utterly speechless. At this point I think my agent would be shocked if we had a conversation that didn’t partially involve stunned silence on my part. I think I EEPed at him. That’s probably not very professional. […]
