*NOTE* This has been sitting in my drafts folder 80% complete for 6 months. I got to a certain point, hit the wall and blanked on how to deal with the pain (the reason why will be obvious). Then I refused to post anything else because I hadn’t finished my annual B-Fest write up (as […]

26 January 2018. The sun sets over Lake Michigan as a cool breeze ruffles the hair of the secretive creatures that scutter towards their lair for the next 24 hours. The time, 6:00 PM; the place, Norris Auditorium; and the event all these curiously masochistic examples of humanity have gathered for; B-Fest 2018 It Begins: […]

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 […]

For any B Fest fans out there, long time attendee Tim who distributes the annual ‘soundtrack’ CDs to all and sundry could use a little help keeping the tradition going for B Fest 2017. My first year as an attendee he came up to me out of nowhere and presented me with all of the […]

Just a quick note to say that I got back last night from the latest iteration of the Sci-Fi Sea Cruise. Had a wonderful trip, but so many things happened that it is going to take a few days to get all my thoughts together and pictures sorted. Watch this space for more details (hopefully […]

I’m late sharing this here, for which I apologize, but in roughly three weeks we are heading off on a really excellent Doctor Who themed nautical adventure. Most excited about our stop in Jamaica as it’s a new port of call for us as a family. And this year’s guest list is fab. Anyhow, it’s not too late to drop everything and join us!
We will be sailing out of Miami, FL on March 3rd. Details are at the link above.

January 22nd 2016, Norris Auditorium, Northwestern University – Once again I took my favorite seat, (second row, second seat from the left) curled up under my fuzzy blankie (to hide my personal Facebook updating during the event), and settled in for 24 more hours of the best of the worst. What I lacked in theme […]

And our annual pilgrimage to Dallas comes round again. Wow, 10 years, that’s a lot of crap movies (over 130 according to the commemorative programs one of the usual gang of psychopaths very kindly produced for the occasion). I didn’t attend my first T-Fest until 2008, so I missed those first three glorious years, but […]
