Can I brag for a quick sec? This week I got renters insurance for the first time ever. BOOM. ADULTING. Though, I hope the hurricanes of the world won’t take this as permission to bring around a cloud to rain on my parade.

Writing about a networked world.
The wonderful Cass of Queerly Seen is running a project about Oscar Wilde from now until May 25th. Seems like this is as good a time as any to write a long, indignant post about the wrongs done to my beloved Robbie Ross.

On politics and the Hugo Awards.
On when “no” means “yes.” (Ahahahaha I tricked you, you thought the article was going to be about rape culture and then it was about contranyms. GRAMMAR HUMOR.)
