Does it edify?

My Grandfather’s bible is a wonderful thing. A holy thing, of curled and gold edged pages. King James, and underlined. Leafed through and notated and well used. Well loved.

My Grandfather, a tall man, a gentle man, with a voice that was strong and real and devastating. He spoke truth in the tone of pure love. He spoke truth in a lilting and glorious tumble of biblical fire. I could feel the fire of his voice lick at my toes as he spoke, raise goosebumps on the back of my neck.

A simple ” I love you” was divine scripture. (more…)

Therapy Notes: just the right amount

Therapy Notes: just the right amount

Sometimes, I think, he likes to see me cry.

Sometimes it feels like he does it on purpose. Then, other times, in the tumbling waves of our turbulent conversations a topic comes up and grasps me; unaware.

This particular topic never fails to leave me a mess. I am unable to completely control the tear flow. I cry, looking away from him, from my stone lady in whom I almost always seek solace. I look out the glass door to the parking lot, watching people drive to separate lives from mine. Yet, he never looks away from me. (more…)

Anti rozatoare

Anti rozatoare

Vrei sa scapi de rozatoare sau te-ai saturat de gaurile in gazon? Sau te-ai saturat ca rozatoarele sa-ti strice culturile pe camp? Atunci ar trebui sa cumperi un aparat anti rozatoare cu ultrasunete. Dispozitivul anti rozatoare functioneaza cu o baterie solara pe principiul unui emitator cu ultrasunete. Dispozitivul produce si propaga in jurul sau valuri sonore, care provoaca rozatoarelor un sentiment de anxietate si disconfort, si, in acelasi timp  le obliga sa paraseasca zona de actiune a aparatului. Astfel, pe o suprafata de aproximativ 650 de metri patrati, terenul va fi fara daunatori. (more…)

Starbucks should have a cancer warning

A judge decided that Starbucks and any other coffee will need to have a cancer warning. Scientists haven`t verdict if coffee is good or bad for you, but a California judge has and he stated that all of the coffee sellers in the state will need to post cancer warnings on their products.

6 REASONS TO GIVE DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW ANOTHER CHANCE

6 REASONS TO GIVE DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW ANOTHER CHANCE

In an unorthodox scheduling move, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl are sharing the Monday night 9 p.m. timeslot as both finish their third seasons. Starting next Monday, Legends airs in place of Supergirl, which will in return in April. To some, the split-scheduling suggests a loss in confidence in The CW’s strangest superhero show. But according to CW President Mark Pedowitz, its audience is incredibly loyal and followed the show from its original Thursday night slot to Tuesdays. Presumably, they will be there for the Monday night move as well. (more…)

M/M ROMANCE, YOU COMPLETE ME

M/M ROMANCE, YOU COMPLETE ME

It all started with a podcast–specifically episode 134 of the Dear Bitches, Smart Authors podcast in which Jane and Sarah have a long, reader-altering chat with Jay from Joyfully Jay.

Despite being afflicted with a historical romance novel addiction, my reading never veered into the m/m romance category. Yes, I read and loved the Lord John Grey series by Diana Gabaldon, but despite Overdrive’s categorization to the contrary, they aren’t really romance novels. I was completely unaware that I could find the same tension, angst, and romance in existing historicals with a gay twist. This was mostly due to reader-blinders, or specifically, publisher-blinders. Most of the historical romance novels available at my public library (my entree into the world of romance) are from major publishers like Avon, St. Martin’s Press and Berkley, which are decidedly heterosexual/normative romance publishers. Had it not been for Jay’s infectiously enthusiastic love of m/m romance (and stellar recommendations), I would not have recently read two excellent historicals.
