Happy Thanksgiving, 2014

I’ve missed a couple of Weekly Recaps. Needless to say, the blog is dangling on the bottom edge of my priority list. Still, I wanted to take a moment to give thanks for all of the wonderful people I’ve met through my little Internet soapbox. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. May your bellies be full […]

Isn’t it a little coarse to go and bang on the drums just because the doorbell is ringing?

Originally posted on Gabriela Blandy – The sense of a journey:
I acted in a student film once and afterwards, at the wrap party in a fusty house at the top of town, I rode an office chair down the hill, flying across the junction at the bottom, ramming the pavement on the other side…

Weekly Recap – November 7th, 2014

  Angus hit the 3-month mark this week. His curiosity grows every day and he loves talking nonsense to his parents, which is great, because they love talking nonsense back! Parenthood and the day job have become all-consuming, so any inclination to keep writing through Wolf’s Tail has, unsurprisingly, been absent. It’s difficult to slide back in when you […]

Angus Halloween 2014

It didn’t feel right putting a fishbowl over his head, so we just pretended Angus was in the space shuttle, breathing through the life support systems. Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween weekend! -Phillip

Weekly Recap – October 31st, 2014

  Angus is still enjoying his Minion hat. He’s all set for Halloween! Now what sort of costume a Minon hat + Mustache pajamas make, I don’t know. But you know kids… No new updates other than trying to develop my time management system while treading water at work. I don’t remember if I mentioned […]

Goodreads giveaway ends soon!

Originally posted on WHAT THE HELL:
Just a reminder that I’m running a Goodreads giveaway for Occasional Soulmates, but it ends on November 5, so now’s your chance to join the fun. If you haven’t purchased the book yet (and come on, you know you haven’t!), step up and put your name in the hat.…

Weekly Recap – October 24th, 2014

Uh oh folks. I want to apologize right now for any villain-in-the-making. The boy is obviously plotting something nefarious… …but maybe he’s just considering the timing of his next poop/pee during a diaper change. He seems to enjoy watching his parents scramble for cover. So, I took a time management class at work yesterday and it […]

My Wattpad Article is Up!

My local writer’s group posted an article I wrote about my Wattpad experiment! If you have some free time and a smidgen of interest, you can check it out here. It even has a rather serious photo of unshaven me, sitting by a plant. -Phillip

Our Little Minion

A HUGE “Thank You” to L. Marie who knitted Angus his own Minion hat. As you can see, he loves it. I’d say the description of minions on the Despicable Me Wiki matches up: They are impulsive creatures with little self-control, but with a wide-eyed wonder and odd innocence that endears them to viewers and makes them relatable. They […]

Book Review – The Iliad by Homer (Robert Fagles Translation)

“Rage–Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus’ son Achilles…” Whether cavemen throwing rocks, Greeks thrusting spears, or drones launching Hellfire missiles–it’s a sad fact that human beings are pretty good at fighting each other. One recent scientific study even suggests our hands evolved in order to throw better punches. And because our nature hasn’t really changed in the […]
