Book Review: The Grand Dark by Richard Kadrey

Largo is stuck in a dead-end job as a bike courier with a crappy apartment and a drug addiction. Things start looking up thanks to a promotion and connections that could help him achieve his dreams, but things also start getting stranger and more worrisome as a war nears, a plague spreads, and people start disappearing and coming back different.

Update: Life and Books (May 2019) + All My #Mermay Art!

So BEA just passed (or maybe is still happening?) and every other blogger will probably be sharing massive book hauls today. Not me. Instead, I just have LOTS OF MERFOLK! (This is going to be a very image-filled post 😬) #Mermay has ended, but I ended up doing six pieces, which is five more than I thought I'd do, and also the most art I've done in a month probably ever.

Sims Shenanigans: A Compilation of Tweets about Weird Things that Have Happened in My Sims 3 Games

I'm taking a brief break from books today to talk about something else I love nearly as much: The Sims! The Sims 3, to be precise, which is my personal favorite version. I sometimes tweet about the weird things my sims get up to, but I know not everyone follows me on Twitter. Even if you do, it's easy to miss tweets. So I thought it'd be fun to gather up all my Sims 3 tweets and put them in a...
