A to Z Challenge – Krypto

Welcome to the 2021 A to Z Challenge! My theme this year is DC Comics. And that’s mostly because of my undying affection for the comic book characters and stories that I grew up reading in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s. So stay tuned all month to (maybe) learn a little something about 26 corners … Continue reading A to Z Challenge – Krypto

Question of the Week #211

Would $50,000 be enough money to induce you to take a loyal, healthy pet to the vet to be put to sleep? Absolutely not.

But not a pet that's clearly part … Continue reading Question of the Week #211

The Story of Duchess

A couple weeks ago, I got a text from one of my roommates asking me if I was cool with him getting a dog. Of course, I'm cool with him getting a dog. As long as I'm not the one that has to be responsible for him. Fine by me. I feel like, most days, … Continue reading The Story of Duchess

Cujo

Title: Cujo Author: Stephen King Published: 1981 I have a confession to make... A lot of the book reviews that I've been including on the blog are reviews that I had done on my previous blog. There are a lot of those old reviews that I've skipped because they're for books that I would like … Continue reading Cujo

Am I Gonna Turn Into a Werewolf?

Recently, a friend of mine from church got a brand new puppy. You know, as is generally the case, the puppy is kind of adorable. It's an empirical fact: puppies are cute. But they have razor sharp needle teeth! I had the distinct pleasure of playing with this puppy in recent days. In my experience … Continue reading Am I Gonna Turn Into a Werewolf?
