Blerds, Nerds, and Uncivil War

Blerds, Nerds, and Uncivil War

So first things first. Yes I’m aware I said Monday, and today is Tuesday. And going into Monday I expected to give you what I said I would. But life got in the way. Social friends know I have been dealing with Bell’s Palsy recently, and that took a turn over the weekend into Monday. There are going to have to be even more changes than originally thought. One of the main ones, well, I’ll save that for who needs to know. Anyway. I spent the day getting through that with time to myself, a lot of prayer, and a Read more »

Regretfully yours

Regretfully yours

“Resurrection is a funny thing. You get real reflective.” How many times now have you seen me say that? Statistically, most of you reading this are old fans who’ve come back, and close-ish friends who have heard me talk in person. So why do I talk like someone else is around? Well “there might be someone new.” Let’s say there have been a lot of new folks while I was away, and so I make sure to clue them in on things you’ve known for a while. But today…well today I’m going into for most of you new territory. We’ve Read more »

THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

Our 5th Anniversary You may have noticed I was not in for last week. We aren’t doing the old number quite yet so I’m certain that far fewer of you know how this usually works. The week of the anniversary for Words Don’t Do It Justice I go away. Usually for planning, but also because life tends to get in the way and I write the post ahead of time to get ready for the day of. This year was a bit different. March 4th was a weekend. And I told you no more weekends. So I took off to Read more »

Notes From Your Favorite Super Villain: No Kings, No Masters

Notes From Your Favorite Super Villain: No Kings, No Masters

ALL HAIL KING KILLMONGER! Now that the hook is out let’s get to it. I know you expect me to rock with N’Jadaka. And I do, sort of. Let’s get this out the way. Michael B. Jordan tore the face off this role and wore it for 2 hours. He is a better written and acted villain than Heath Ledger as the Joker, and were this note a spoiler discussion I would get into all the ways that is. Instead I want to get to a bigger point. Choice. Fair Warning: This is the new style of note, all opinion, Read more »

And now…A new hour begins

And now…A new hour begins

Your brain is feeding you correct information, I assure you. That weird feeling in the back of your mind that says this can’t be happening is, in fact, incorrect. You are here, reading these words. And as it were, so am I. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. You deserve it. Crazy how life goes. For 3 years my Monday schedule included frantically editing and prepping the piece I wrote over the course of the last week. And then getting it shared all over my various social media sites. Stressing over content. Straight up harassing my writers until Read more »

RSI: Redefining Beauty

RSI: Redefining Beauty

Beauty. Cuteness. Attractive. Adorable… A young man called me beautiful last night. Part of me wanted to smile and say thank you shyly. Instead I said “I know, and thank you for noticing!”… Still with a smile, but not the kind that usually goes with feigned humility or embarrassment. I accepted his compliment. Once I did, the voices in my head took over, telling me that he probably didn’t really mean it. I told me that I’m only pretty to a very select few kinds of people, let alone beautiful. I told me that I certainly shouldn’t have been so forward about accepting that compliment. Luckily, Read more »
