“It burns when I pee!” This week we eat an MRE sent in by a reader, review microwave meatloaf, pad thai, and kimchee, and briefly explore CIA cuisine, why I don’t backpack any more, and the poetry of Rudyard Kipling.
…and it’s not always a good thing for sales. I was at the book store t’other day–the real brick-and-mortar one, to sign a couple of my books, and I was browsing through the SF/Fantasy section, and I tripped over a trilogy* It was a big set of books. It would be a substantial cash investment […]
I’m an idiot, should have posted this sooner! A new Kevin & Ursula Eat Cheap, wherein we review a couple of the usual and taste-test five different varieties of mac & cheese! (Never want to look at mac & cheese again…) Audio on this one is a little bit wonky because of a new microphone, […]
Okay, since a number of people expressed interest in trading prints for socks/scarves/whatever–yes, I’d be happy to! I have one lovely pair of socks that a fan knitted for me after reading Nurk, and they’re among my faves for when the weather gets cold. I’m a women’s size 8.5 in socks, I like my scarves […]

Sigh. I was at Borders yesterday, stopping in to sign Were-Wiener stock, and grabbed a coffee. The woman who waited on me was wearing a headscarf, and she said “I love your jacket!” I really wanted to say “I love your hijab.” Because it was really pretty, damnit, and the fabric was awesome. But I […]
Well, boys and girls, we are headed towards November at a truly shocking pace, and that means it’s time for Nanowrimo! I have never understood the hate for Nanowrimo in some quarters. Editors, yes. Editors, as my buddy Mur points out, have every reason to despise Nanowrimo because come December 1st, their slush pile swells […]
Taxman totals are in! Taxman II will be an edition of 80 and Tea with the Taxman will be an edition of 58. If you sent me a note, but didn’t pay yet, don’t worry, you’re included in that total. My profound thanks to everyone who ordered! This covered my unexpected tax “adjustment” and even […]
