I Is for I Like Alien Resort: #atozchallenge

  About a zillion words into a post about ifferisms, I discovered I was so bored I couldn't go on, and if I couldn't go on, neither could anyone else. So I abandoned it. That left a void in the topic area, but the only I word I could think of was I. Well, they … Continue reading I Is for I Like Alien Resort: #atozchallenge

Dedicated to the kindness of strangers

In June, David's "Alike and Different," a video "dedicated to the kindness of strangers," won the Out of This World Award at the Lionshead Film Festival in Dallas. The emcee who introduced the video said--and I wrote this down so I would get it right--"Not much I can say. Four minutes." And then, to the audience, "We'll see … Continue reading Dedicated to the kindness of strangers

Saints, Angels, Bananas, and Bricks

David made banana pudding. I'd planned to make it myself. We had spotty bananas. David made a special trip to HEB for sugar, flour, cream of tartar, vanilla wafers, and other ingredients Miss Myra required. Then I ran out of steam. That was Friday.

The Best of Fantastic Fest: My Husband, His Films, and a Flying Vegetable Steamer

Last week a friend asked what David and I have done for fun lately. A long silence followed.

A few remarks to help in the deciphering process: The first are from Friday night's costume party at the Roswell Zoo. We expected to … Continue reading Roswell: JPEGs
