Better rip off the old #introductions band-aid so people don't think I'm a poorly written bot.
I'm Al. I'm an old school bisexual, just because they didn't have the word "pan" back when we were driving our hot rods to the malt shop and getting an egg cream for a dime.
I love indie comic books, comedy and cooking. My TV is always blaring something, since otherwise I get lonely.
I'm as broken as everybody else and my coping strategies are pretty terrible, but I make do.

I'm not a huge non-fiction fan, but this was a pretty fun one. I'm glad someone got to tell the tale of Elizebeth fighting bootleggers and Nazis with her brain and a radio.

Got home pretty late last night and knew dinner would take a while, so I ran to the bodega and grabbed us some pita and hummus to snack on during. Before we could finish I whisked it away, added some apple cider vinegar and a water to make an improvised dressing, which I tossed with some Brussels slaw and diced chicken. Topped with with crumbled pita chips for texture, of course.
The girlfriend declared it absolutely delicious.
I summoned my inner Martha Stewart and I feel stronk.

Kind of a neat view of how people can fall into a technical dystopia even with positive intentions. Marred by the fact that the main character could have literally been replaced by a pile of mashed potatoes.

Grisly, and a little interesting as far as Austin's local history, but it's a whole lot of fluff. Of course it just fizzles without any sense of completion, but what else would you expect with an unsolved crime?
Book Musings: All The Birds In The Sky Show more
Gosh... I'm a little sad that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to. It started off strong, but it almost starts to fight you along the way. The childhood section becomes obsessive about describing detailed bullying. Then we jump and the tone changes, leading to less than fluid adult dialogue and romances without a lick of chemistry. There are so many plot elements that just... don't pay off in any way.
Interesting world, I'll give it that.

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
