Adolescence is tech week for adulthood.
Uninformed take: Metroid is a metaphor for early parenthood.
Being a parent is like teaching eight different preps every day and never the same prep two terms in a row.
I’m giving the keynote at IndieWebCamp New Haven on March 30. You can attend remotely! In fact, that’s what I’m doing.
Having a paper accepted with revisions on the first submission is reason to celebrate, yeah? Reviewer 2’s (and 3’s, I’m the scholarly equivalent of a hatstall!) comments can wait until next week…
Me, writing my comps about cosplay: I’m almost out of space and I haven’t even mentioned Butler on performance or Bakhtin’s carnivalesque!

I’ve fallen down an internet rabbit hole! My current work = reading about cosplay. Cosplay is part of fandom, and I feel disconnected from fandom so I started listening to Fansplaining to get me back in touch, and that took me to Wattpad, and then I started reading a Wattpad blog post that linked to Fanlore (which I already knew about but have never explored in-depth) and now I guess I’m going to just die of starvation while reading all of Fanlore? But also, please stay tuned for details about my upcoming fic, Rupert Giles, Actual School Librarian.
