A very long list of pangrams

A very long list of pangrams

A pangram is a sentence containing every word in a given language.  Here’s a list of a bunch in English (plus a few others).  I have some favorites.

No kidding, Lorenzo called off his trip to visit Mexico City just because they told him the conquistadores were extinct.

Forsaking monastic tradition, twelve jovial friars gave up their vocation for a questionable existence on the flying trapeze.

Life update (including the Against Me! concert)

Life update (including the Against Me! concert)

Against Me! was amazing.  That was Thursday night in Orlando.  The Valkyrie and the Naiad got to meet Laura Jane Grace after the show, and they were over the moon about it.  The Valkyrie got Laura to autograph her Midori cover with a Sharpie.  It’s awesome.

Other stuff that’s been going on:

I’m not going to be able to have my hysterectomy this Wednesday.  I’m sick.  Breathing hurts, my sinuses…

Fauxdori update

I continue to use the hell out of my Field Notes-sized fauxdori.  I thought I would share the way I’ve been using it, since I just started a fresh FN for daily pages.  (I actually used one up.  Shocking.)

Daily pages have the day’s tasks and appointments.  I’m dating a week out at a time.

I also write from the back of the notebook forward, on the left hand side.  The very last page is for…

Insomnia, and an unexpected gift

Insomnia, and an unexpected gift

I haven’t slept in over 24 hours.  Still not tired.  Not good.  I was feeling really bad and down on myself, but someone on my favorite knitting forum offered to send me a Pilot Vanishing Point for nothing more than postage.  My flabber was ghasted.  That’s a $140 pen.  She doesn’t like it, so it’s mine now.  And it’s even black, which is the color I wanted.  I’m sending her handspun yarn in…

Fuck gender, fuck everything.

Fuck gender, fuck everything.

I am not a man.  I’m not a woman either.  Just some fucking freak in the middle.  I realized this tonight when the Valkyrie and I were having… not an argument, but… she said something about me being a man and it just felt so wrong, I’m not her husband, just her fucked-up spouse…

We seem to be doing this thing lately, when I get upset she gets scared and lashes out verbally, and when she lashes…

Birthday, and applying to grad school

Birthday, and applying to grad school

Yesterday was my birthday.  It started off just after midnight, when the Valkyrie and the Naiad and I all exchanged presents.  V got me an adorable owl coin purse…

and a Manatea tea strainer that had me laughing my ass off.

From Amazon

I had seen both these things online months ago, thought they were adorable, and never got around to buying them for myself.  Which means they were…

Dental fun

Last February I had my annual dental checkup.  Dentist found a cavity and told me I was going to need a root canal.  I believed him.  When his colleague went in to do the procedure, he found that it was only a cavity.  I assumed my dentist had made a mistake, and thought nothing of it.  Until last week’s annual checkup, when he did the exact same thing, and quoted me $2000 to fix the tooth.  This…
