Our poor little plague-baby.
The image below is a shot of a Dropbox directory with every one of my blog posts since 2001, each saved as a separate plaintext file, properly dated and titled.
All done with the wp2md python script, and one command that took 20 seconds to run.
Well, one command and twenty seconds, once I fixed the errors being generated by iTunes and Facebook plugins. (I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.)
So happy right now.

Her name is Rosie. Not Lily. Rosie. Eventually I'll get that right.
Look at those enormous floppy ears!

I would laugh, but I've actually been on the receiving end of this 'conversation.'

Dogs playing D&D

It’s about time the notorious gaming dogs got something relevant to play.

Humanity can do some pretty awesome stuff when we try.
It was we crows who took your daughter, in case you were wondering. She didn’t run away.
Here's the basic premise of Deanna Knippling's latest book – the crows have found a human girl who tells stories and, being somewhat… possessive of stories, carry the girl away to live with them.
But the girl is shocked to silence by the flurry of wings and talons and beaks and (let's be honest) bird shit, and won't talk – won't tell the stories that drew the crows to her in the first place.
Awk-ward, you might say. *
The solution to this problem is that the girl's new feathered foster family tell her the human stories they know: a way of priming the pump and reminding her who and what she is.
Those stories, and the interstitial moments with the girl and new and old family, form the bones of A Murder of Crows – as a fine a skeleton as you could want for Halloween.
Deanna had me hooked from that first, wonderful line, and the short stories were exactly what I wanted, this time of year, both in subject and length.
Are you in the same kind of mood? Need a little macabre for chilly autumn nights?
Allow me to make a recommendation…
