Sleeping with a CPAP February 19, 2017

I’m now old enough for Home Medical Equipment – specifically, a CPAP machine. Along with age comes wisdom. Also, extra body fat, wiry chin hairs, and an inability to distinguish one pop song from another.  Me, I got an extra bonus – the ability to snore. I snore loudly and dramatically, so I’m told. My…

Book Review — So Anyway…by John Cleese February 16, 2017

So, Anyway… So anyway….here’s my review of “So Anyway…” If you don’t know who John Cleese is, just stop reading here. Also know that we will never be friends in real life. So Anyway (haha), going on the assumption that you know who he is if you are continuing to read, I will not explain…

White Hat Hacker February 12, 2017

Obviously, I have a website.  I’m proud of it: www.loriduffwrites.com.  I paid someone to set it up initially, but ever since the very beginning I have changed it and added to it often.  It’s one of my children, really, lovingly created out of materials I had on hand.  It is very meaningful to me.  To…

Book Review — Chasing the Moon February 9, 2017

Chasing the Moon “Chasing the Moon” by A. Lee Martinez is a strange little book, highly entertaining, and laugh out loud funny. Don’t let its silliness fool you, though. There’s a lot of existential philosophy in there if you pay attention. In this book, all Diana wants is an affordable apartment. She finds one that…

Get a Job, Kid January 29, 2017

Book Review — The Rook January 26, 2017

  The Rook “The Rook” by Daniel O’Malley is a wonderfully inventive, witty, thoughtful book that can be, at times, dead serious and laugh out loud hilarious. It is part spy novel, part whodunit, part fantasy, and all entertaining. Myfanwy (rhymes with “Tiffany”) Thomas awakens beaten and bloody in a London park surrounded by dead…

Eyeball Surgery Redux January 15, 2017

If you’ve read my books (and I’ll pause here while you go order them off of Amazon or the online retailer of your choice if you haven’t) you’ll know that I have a pretty lengthy history with eyeball surgery.  As a person too blind for lasik, I got implanted contact lenses which involved slicing open…
