Library Lament

I love books. I love reading stories, both fiction and non, and utterly miss having a library. I had a big library in the past, and a decent collection before leaving Hawaii. My library consisted of four major categories: science fiction and fantasy, historical (fiction and non), academia for research, and career related (computer, web, and marketing). Almost everything had a hard cover; which is why I had to let it go - too costly to ship. When I took all those books to Book-Off at Pearlridge, the clerks were firstly amazed, and secondly aghast.

Creative Embroidery

Something I love about the SCA is that it has gotten me interested in needlework and embroidery again. Some of my earliest memories are of my grandmother creating artwork with counted cross stitch. She taught me, but I quickly lost interest (as most little girls do).

On The Road Again...

I deplore flying. That is a funny statement considering I grew up on an island in the middle of the ocean and the only way to see anything new was to fly. Still, I seriously do not like to fly. I've been told it may be a 'control issue' - as I have to hand my fate over to some pilot. I think it has something to do with the fact that I cannot see much of anything outside - clouds are exciting for only so much time.

So leaving Vegas and heading eastward without a vehicle of my own (which, dear reader, is my preferred method of travel), I opted for Greyhound.

Adventure Time

So... "poor girl" couldn't renew her hosting, and it is back to the Google-verse and using Blogger. She is also "stupid girl" as she didn't download everything... so a lot of what was on her site is *poof* - over a decade of sporadic posts and stuff. Is alright, this is a good place to post and exercise my writing - not so much with the template and code tweaking as I would do on WordPress. Is a good thing, I need to get back to writing and not so much tweaking.
