Well, fuck a duck. Things have been picking up no end.

I'm getting book orders and good feedback and people I haven't heard from in a few months, and all sorts of happy stuff.

Fuck a duck. I AM the happy person.

More Insane (s-word)

by mieprowan

Crossposted from Free Speech Zone, and for what it's worth; I would NEVER have posted this first here.

This is all getting very tiresome, this business of people saying Miep is Teh Crazy.

Very boring.

I think I need to work harder on fixing it. I think I need to tell you teh Bad Story Which I Have Hidden So Much.

Deal.

I commence to give away my trees

by mieprowan

I've been thinking about this for awhile, since things are changing a lot now. Giving away my fruit trees.

I bought them last year. An apricot, a pear, a Braeburn apple, and a crabapple to pollinate the Braeburn and be beautiful in the spring. And a Stella cherry, because I always wanted to have a cherry tree, but they run forty feet tall and need another one to cross-pollinate. Stella cherries are dwarf cherry trees, only run fifteen feet or so I think. (post-publish edit; they are also self-pollinating)

Stories We Tell Ourselves

by mieprowan

We tell ourselves a lot of stories. There's nothing wrong with that; in fact we need them. But we should always be looking at what the story we're telling is, and what the underlying stories are.

We need to think very clearly now

by mieprowan

We are at war. It was not what we expected, even those of us who were hesitant about Barack Obama.

And this is not about Barack Obama's failings; he is what he is and under better circumstances he would have not only started out a popular president, but also continued to be so.

Corporations vs. Humans

by mieprowan

Since apparently we are going to have to be dealing with corporate influence even more than we already have been, like it or not; I guess it's best to keep talking about them, vs. us - i.e., humans. I believe the Bill of Rights was about human rights, not corporate rights. No mention of corporations in there at at all.

A Kalimba For Haiti

by mieprowan

I bought a kalimba the other day, via the Internet. A Hugh Tracy kalimba.

It cost me $98.

I had a good kalimba when I was a kid, and I always remembered having it. They are neat.

Kids love them.

How To Write A Troll Diary

by mieprowan

sigh.

Okay, I'll try to help.

Okay, first...the VERY first thing you do, is come in, in a way, that will catch people off guard. It helps to be confusing with a touch of humor. Get all that in the title. Follow the rules. Capitalize every word.

Then, you cut to the chase.

I'm 52 and Bob's dead

by mieprowan

Catchy, no?
I found out from some stalker creep on the street a few weeks ago.

Bob died last October. We were part of each other's lives for ten years. We lived in the same small town, during all of that, including the part where we stopped being part of each other's lives. Total time 1996 through 2008, when Bob died.

How the hell did this happen?
