OMG! I had another birthday!

Well, another year and another freakish accident to survive, and I have made it to my 25th birthday! Five and twenty, five squared, a quarter of a century…That is quite a number, and I’m very pleased to have made it this far. It kinda sucked that my birthday fell on a Monday and I had […]

Conspiracy Theories: Sheroes (Part II a)

In case you haven’t figured it out already, I’m white.  I am a privileged white woman who doesn’t have a frakking clue about what it’s like to be a woman of colour in the United States (in the 1920’s or otherwise).  I’m still educating myself about race and how to discuss it effectively; what I […]
