Holiday card, anyone?

It's that time of year again! I have my Christmas/holiday cards ready to send out, and I'd love to pass along the love. If you'd like a card this year, let me know! If I don't have your address already, PM me!

It's that time of year again...

HALLOWEEN!! And you know what that means? Time for another All Hallow's Read!!

Every year for the last 3 years, I've hosted a Halloween-themed book swap, and I don't want this year to be any different. It's been such a fun way to send good books to friends and to receive some excellent reading material in return! The books don't have to be about Halloween or even particularly scary, although it's fun to stick to a theme. I always encourage sending used or previously-owned (by you) books to save on money and to pay forward the biblio love, so it's pretty inexpensive, and media mail is cheaper than regular packages, anyway!

The rules are simple:
-Let me know by October 12th that you want to participate
-Acquire books for each person you've been assigned*
-Send them out via snail mail by the deadline (October 21st)
-Halloween card included is optional, but encouraged!

*After I have the final tally of participants, I'll let everyone know the total number. Then, if you don't feel like you can send to everyone in the swap, I'll assign you one other person - so everyone, including you, will get at least one new book!

Sooo.... who wants to join in the fun?! Let me know ASAP and I'll add you to the list :D

My choir’s latest CD is out! There’s some damn fine music on it, so if you’re into choral singing at all or you just enjoy quality music, you might want to check it out (?) at http://www.equilibri.com/cd_detail.php?disc=790&item=playlist&genre=19&view=genre. If you listen hard on tracks 2, 9, 10, 13 and 14, you might just hear me in the soprano section :D

Teapots, teapots everywhere!

You asked for it! Since some of you appreciated my teacup collection, it’s only fair that I give attention to my teapots as well. Here we have…

Notes from my younger self

I unearthed an old journal from my freshman year of college (2006), and among the pages I found a list of qualities that I was (apparently) looking for in a man. If you read it, you will see

A) that I’ve been an asexual baby before I even had a word for it

B) why ...

Read the transcript below the cut if you dare!Collapse )
Gratuitous tea things post!! I’ve shared some random shots of my teacups and various pots in the past (maybe?), but I’ve never actually shown them in all their china glory. I’m sure that there are few who will really care to see and read about my little collection, but for those who do - this is for you!

We"re all mad here -- for TEA!!Collapse )

Tea pots post to come?


Did I mention I started a book blog?

If you're on Tumblr, feel free to follow me @bibliopossum! You are, of course, welcome to follow my personal blog, too (same handle as this one), but for you nerdy book lovers like me, perhaps you might enjoy some literary nonsense?

I'm just going to leave this here...

...step away nervously, and lurk in the shadows like the weirdo I am.

Reason why today is truly a beautiful day:

  • My parents renewed their wedding vows after 30 years of marriage

  • I was able not only to be there but to sing during the service AND IT DIDN’T SUCK

  • Oh, and did I mention same-sex marriage was legalized in all 50 states today??!?

We've been down in Charleston all week, so the tragedy at the AME church and the 9 men and women who lost their lives here have been very much on our minds. I suppose it should dampen some of our personal joy, and it was truly a senseless, devastating act, but I am also immensely proud of how the city has responded. Instead of riots, peaceful rallies and memorial services have won the day. There is certainly a time for protest and indignation in the face of injustice, but especially in this instance - where one horrible individual acted out of personal hate - the need for compassion and togetherness is so, so big and Charleston has really delivered.


GUYS. Guys, looooookkkkkkk!!!

I made a friend at the South Carolina aquarium! This adorable baby kept coming up to me (seriously - he came back at least five times), rubbing on my hand and gumming my fingers and splashing water at my face. So cute!!! I'm calling him Montey, and we are best friends. Our love is eternal.
