This is new for me…I never was much of a pie gal until this year. I blame my introduction to Supernatural. Also, the opening of a pie shop down the street from our house.
It’s now November, but it was just October a blink ago. And in Washington, October means apple harvest. And that means apple cider, boozed-up or non.
Ok, that one was a stretch. Turns out, ginger is not something easily referenced in geekness and fandoms. But I crave it anyway- candied, in my mocha, in my bread, you name it.
Do I crave Mudder’s Milk in the cold dark season? Heck no. But “all the protein, vitamins and carbs of your grandma’s best turkey dinner, plus 15% alcohol.” more or less sums up my approach to food in general in Autumn.

Gathering those minimalist geek designs for the button above introduced me to SO MANY new shops. I would like to buy all of those posters. I feel slightly guilty in using the artwork, but people….just Google “minimalist <fill in the blank>” and you’ll find buckets of talented folk.
Where work was super emotional last week, and filled with people making me cry and barf, and barfcry, this week has been painfully tiring. With some public crying. That’s stress with EBV for you: takes a minute to manifest, wreaks havoc with your health and sanity for weeks.
Considering how extreme stress affects my health, and how upset health affects every other aspect of my life, it’s been extra frustrating to know that a situation in which I’m powerless is also damaging my ability to function as a human being. Can I go run off and hide in WWoHP again?
Thankfully, it won’t last much longer. I’m ready to yank the Band-Aid off, myself.
I’m a coffee-fueled, hobby-addicted bibliophage who makes cruelty-free mineral eye shadows (inspired by novels). I’m usually in front of a screen (writing, reading, or gaming), but I’ve been known to emerge for geekery, good food, and dark chocolate.
