Bride of Darkness

See this and another photo in my Flickr album.Originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck. I promised I’d post a picture. Go to my flckr page to see a full-length (okay, 5/8) shot.

Repost from the Nano Blog

I wrote this over at my Nano blog because it was related to a local “meetup” for Nano participants. I think the important thing to note about this post is that is literally goes against EVERYTHING I wrote about yesterday related to curling up in my cave on a rainy day. I planned all day […]

Tag, You’re It

A news story out of Attleboro quoted a mom with the same last name as me. I proceeded to get email from friends all over the planet who saw the article on CNN and wanted to know if I was related to that mom. http://www.thesunchronicle.com/articles/2006/10/18/features/feature37.txt The story, about an Attleboro elementary school banning tag at […]
