What I’ve Been Reading: December 12, 2021

We’ve got a lot to cover this week: Paramore; terrible restaurants; and Internet “sleuths,” among other topics. So let’s just dive right in and see what happens.

What I’ve Been Reading: June 13, 2021

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with each other. How are you doing? Are you doing okay? Are you feeling comfortable in your skin? Would you like to slither out of that skin and grow a new one? How digested is that rat you swallowed whole? Don’t you think that legs are stupid and useless? Isn’t having a forked tongue cool?

Anyway, today we’re talking about COVID, nature, and tech.

I Took a Trip to Walt Disney World

If you’re wondering why the blog didn’t update with many year-end recaps over the past week or so, it’s because I took a trip to Walt Disney World for the holidays. (Don’t worry, roundups of albums, songs, anime, and animated films of 2019, as well as things I’m anticipating in 2020, are on their way.) It was a blast! But rather than doing a full chronological recap of my trip, I’m just going to go ahead and post impressions of each park and attraction I visited.
