Monday's Meme of the Week

Let me be clear: I do not find this amusing. Terrifying. Horrifying. Butt-clenchingly frightening.

All too true.

But not amusing.

This shit is scary, y'all.

A Day at the Pictures

I love the Six Nations. Why? Well, it's not because I'm a huge rugby fan. Jay and I came to an agreement, several years ago now, that I'd get a movie day so he could go hang out with his friends and watch the match.

I'd say the agreement is skewed in my favour!

Anywho... Today was my first rugby movie day. What did I go see?

Sing is exactly what you'd expect it to be: fun and feel-good but nothing special. It's good. Just good.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was nostalgic. It was nice to see Claire again and to go back to the Hive.

The special effects and stunts were slick. Visually, it was stunning.

You'll notice I've refrained from giving any kind of opinion yet. I'm finding it hard to form one. I keep going back and forth between "This was good fun. I loved it!" and "What the fuck was up with that? Oh, I don't like that."

What did you think of it?

Acceptance #2 of 2017

After an incredibly slow start to the year, I feel like I'm finding my stride again.

My creepy, sexy short story, "The Night He Came", is joining Thirteen O'Clock Press's Blood anthology. Whoot!

It's a story that I fought with for a long time and never really felt comfortable enough to submit. For starters, it was in first person and that never sits well with me. So I re-wrote it in third person and gave it a new ending and... success!
