After a longer hiatus than I’d planned, I am now online in my Undisclosed Desert Location™ and should be getting on a regular blogging schedule soonest. Yes, my alter ego *is* deployed at the moment, but since she has rethought her whole not-quitting-Facebook position due to the influx of even greater degrees of hatred and […]Read more "I can haz Interwebs!"
So, I’m deploying soon (National Guard. Middle East.

Not sure […]Read more "Random Thoughts: Father’s Day Edition"

Also I am pretty sure even Brits don’t pronounce ‘saccharine’ that way. Actual Lyrics Love is like a bomb […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesday – Def Leppard: Pour Some Sugar on me"

Larry Correia’s The Adventures of Tom Strange, Interdimentional Insurance Agent is currently available through June 21st as a free audiobook from Audible.
