Book Review — Save the Cat! Writes for TV August 27, 2021

I very much enjoyed the original Save the Cat![1] Book by Blake Snyder.  Although it focused on screenwriting, and I am not a screenwriter, there is something universal about story that made it fascinating to see the concept broken down into its elements. So I was super excited when the good folks at WOW! Women…

Inbox Zero August 26, 2021

Once upon a time in a land not too far away we wrote letters on a typewriter, using carbon paper if we wanted to keep a copy and Wite-Out[1] if we made a mistake, put them in envelopes with stamps on them, and waited several days for them to be delivered by the United States…

Baby’s First Apartment August 13, 2021

My son moved into his first apartment a few weeks ago and I had the great privilege of helping him set it up.  I thought it would be fun to watch him take this giant leap towards actual adulthood. I remember doing that myself, back in the early 90s.  I collected cast-off furniture from wherever…

Driving in Houston July 30, 2021

Recently, I had the need to drive from my home in suburban Atlanta to Houston, TX with my son.  This is no small task.  It involved two tanks of gas and crossing the Mississippi River.  We listened to an entire audiobook and still had time to talk.  It’s hard to get a feel for the…

Mac and Cheese (with a cherry on top) June 16, 2021

I went to my first in-person conference in almost two years and, I have to say, it was odd.  Many of the people there I had only ‘met’ via Zoom, and they looked a little strange in three-dimensional form.  A popular topic was “Holy moly!  Dress shoes!  I forgot!”  I suspect that the footwear industry…

Abstract Pictures June 4, 2021

My daughter wanted some pictures of her and her bestie to put in a graduation card.  In theory, this was a simple task, since over the years there have been upwards of 83 million pictures of the two of them taken.  In reality, we could only find about three pictures that had been turned into…

Blinking in the Sunlight May 21, 2021

There’s a scene in the beginning of Bambi where spring comes and all the animals wake up from hibernation.  There are lots of new babies, including Bambi himself.   h [I’ve always wanted to know why the night critters and the day critters were all up at the same time, and why there didn’t seem to…
