Adventures on the Dionysus:5

*kaboom* Startled by the blasts I dash out of my chamber as the ship tilts and objects slide across the halls. *alarm lights flashing* I bolt to the brig where Fentual is trying to even the ship.

"What is going on Fentual!?" I ask as I grab the back of the pilot seat to hold me up.…

Ode To A Star

Oh you shimmer so against the velvet night

If I were to be with you

You who gleam so

How colossal you would be

I would not recognize you little one

here you are but a grain of sand

and still I watch you with fixed fascination

as you twinkle brightly

gleaming so far away

when you are gone

I shall never know

for in my life you shine,

in my child's you will die

Until the last of your rays

should…

Attention, New Yorkers: there is an awesome kitten up for adoption who would fit in perfectly in a neo-Victorian household; imagine the one on the left in this photo with a tiny top hat if it helps. (Kitten adoptions happen often in this neck of the woods; check them out if you're interested!)

Method of Transportation

I'm studying as much as possible about the earth's magnetic waves and how they might relate to my book. It's all very mysterious and that's the key. When something is mysterious, you can make up stuff. After all, the best lie is based in truth, and so are the best fish tales. And I'm not just sticking to facts. I'm researching wild theories, religious nutters, mystic sites, geometric patterns or vorticies and ley lines, old wives tales and more. It's fun, but exhausting. My brain will…

July 3, 1893

Courtship, I have decided, is a silly thing.  Since I spent my childhood away from the Western world, I was unfamiliar with the rules of courtship until I went to university.  Even now I remain perplexed by what constitutes proper behavior for a lady.  Not that I care very much for rules.

 

Needless to say, Mr. Edward– or, as he insists, Joshua– is officially courting me.  He is the first man I have acknowledged to be doing such.  (It is funny how I can freely admit this here,…

So, here I am, been instruction the innovative fitness paradigm of Torqueblade, an amalgamation of modern functional fitness principles with steam age fitness regimes.  Its all legit, been a fitness guru for over 12 years and been exercising for over 25 years.  To be honest the regime is like a gestalt entity incorporating yoga, pirates of the Caribbean a double espresso with a shot of adrenaline.  Anyone up for swinging some flippin' big blades?…
