    And just like that, NaBloPoMo is over. Where did November go, exactly? And along a similar vein, where the hell did December come from??? So, yeah, I managed to write a blog posting every single day1 Interestingly, I didn’t end up using hardly any of the ideas that I brainstormed before the month started 2 – […]

  • I’m Highly Contagious with Zombie Eyeball Disease

    In the latest instalment of Beth’s 2016 health woes, apparently I am now infected with the highly contagious adenovirus. Because apparently having a cold, which this year comes associated with the “100 day cough”1 and then having food poisoning wasn’t enough. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Last Wednesday night, I played hockey. I felt completely […]

  • If you only read one lablit story this year, make it “Crisis Management”

  • More About My Vacation. Plus 101 Footnotes!

    So, we are back from our whirlwind trip to Portland1 and are now hanging out on Vancouver Island2,3 . Didn’t really take many photos4 since I went to pretty much all the same places as I did last year5, so I figure you could just look at the photos from last year6. Some random thoughts […]

  • I Am Zombie, Hear Me Moan

    Yesterday, I faced hordes of zombies and… I came out a zombie myself! I had such high hopes that I could run through the 5 km zombie obstacle course race, otherwise known as Run for Your Lives (in Washington State) and not be eaten, but it turns out that the undead got the better of me. […]
