That's what happens when I get started. Few more things I wanted to go over that didn't make it into this morning's post. DON'T FORGET THE METEORS Everybody wants to talk about the upcoming eclipse. All eclipse all the time. Eclipse eclipse eclipse, yeah, yeah. Am I bitter and jealous because I didn't make special … Continue reading I totally wasn’t done – there’s meteors and Jerry Garcia and PLANS
"You really are the Wizard of Monadnock!" A friend of mine said that to me last week. Obviously, if I didn't think so, this whole blog and podcast - now nearing five years old - would be a strange project indeed, but it's still weird to hear it from someone else. I felt honored and humbled. … Continue reading How’ve you been?
I don't honestly remember the last time I came on here just to check in and share some random thoughts in writing, so here I am - lest I forget how to do it. I don't exactly feel regret about this; I'll freely admit when I'm being neglectful, but in this case, the focus has just … Continue reading Let’s hear it for the breathing space-rock
Bet you didn't know we did elections at the Wizard of Monadnock. Until a couple weeks ago, neither did me. How and when exactly this little endeavor came to me, I can't quite recall.

I need your peer pressure in order to make this happen. Your peer pressure - harsh and brutal if necessary - is my only hope. It's November again, obviously, and as I kept getting nagging spam emails from the NaNoWriMo people, I slowly succumbed to the allure of Why not? You should know, this is maybe … Continue reading I am doing NaNoWriMo – AND I NEED YOUR HELP!
All you fall-lovers can go to hell. Happy Autumnal Equinox, you smug bastards. All right, all right, enough of that. I'm baiting you and indulging myself - on purpose, of course. The truth, as ever, is more complicated. My baiting indulgence and cruel cursing is rooted in a couple of factors. For one, I've noticed a … Continue reading You can take your pumpkin spice lattes and….
