  • A very good post about what gay marriage means, from L.A. Witt. (This does the same thing, but be aware that you’ll likely hit NSFW stuff if you wander from that link.)




  • I’m not sure I’m ready for Monopoly Live, which is controlled by a tower in the middle of the board.
  • Nose vibrator?! (Completely SFW. I know you’re surprised. But really, it is.)

Reading Update
Rinse and Repeat by Amberly Smith. ebook. Excellent paranormal m/m romance about a guy who’s a Repeater, stuck repeating the same day over and over again until he can change some key event from the day. Things are different on this Repeat, because he’s started to care way too much about a skateboarder he’s watched die far too many times. (Hi, Pouty Guy!)
These Haunted Heights by Ally Blue. ebook. Very good paranormal m/m romance about a photojournalist who’s staying alone at his aunt’s house on the Oregon coast while he shoots a story about the area. Mysterious crying from the empty tower room and a handsome brooding neighbor complicate things in interesting ways…
How the Other Half Lives by Clare London. ebook short. Very good short m/m romance about two guys, one very tidy and the other very untidy, who exchange flatsitting duties with each other, but never actually meet… until they do.
A Russian Bear by C.B. Conwy. Very good kinky m/m romance about a grad student and a Dom who meet through a case of mistaken identity that leads to the Dom helping the grad student explore his attraction to submission.
Maleria, Cholera and Bubonic Plague (A Russian Bear, Book 1.5) by C.B. Conwy. web short. Good short m/m romance about Mischa waking up with hangover. (Although I would’ve eaten toast first, not chili!)
Call Me Sir, Boy! by Kim Dare. ebook short. Cute kinky short m/m romance about a dom who loses a bet and is stuck wearing a hat that says “Call Me SIR, Boy!” at the club for an evening when he’s approached by a submissive he’s never seen before – a submissive who seems perfect for him.
Opposites Distract by Stephani Hecht. ebook short. Sweet short m/m romance about a party boy who’s really attracted to a geeky guy he sees at their college’s GLBT student center, but the geeky guy doesn’t trust the party boy’s intentions.
Chocolate Dreams by Em Woods. ebook short. Sweet short m/m romance about an accountant who’s been burned by love before and lies about having a boyfriend to the chocolatier he finds attractive.
Sagittarius Blues by Katrina Strauss. ebook. Good holiday m/m romance about a college student whose inflammatory vlog personality has unexpected negative impacts on his life. For some reason, this never really came together for me and I haven’t been able to figure out why.
Into the Light (Clear Water Chronicles, Book 1) by Scarlet Blackwell. ebook. Ok m/m romance about a sheriff who’s a good man now, but was part of a bullying gang when he was in high school… and other members that gang raped a gay student while he stood by and did nothing. Now the victim of that rape has returned to town and wants the sheriff to pay for his part in the unreported crime. This was a really mixed read for me – I felt that it started out strongly, but by the end had turned into a melodramatic soap opera. 🙁
One True Thing by Amanda Grayson. ebook short. What an unsatisfying read! This m/m romance about an agent who has to go into deep cover by having his cover story planted in his brain was frustrating, particularly since it had so much potential. There was way too much story for a short, so the story had no depth and often seemed to jump around. And then the story just stopped, so you have no idea if they successfully completed the mission (i.e., the purported reason for the story).

  1. Nutella is unhealthy?! What the…I’m shocked. Shocked and dismayed, let me tell you. I would have thought for sure that anything with COCOA AND A CRAP LOAD OF HAZELNUTS would be. Man…

    But, we have amazingly cute little kittens and penguins and tigers and blackbirds to make up for it. And Chaos!

  2. That Nutella story cracked me up. I’ve always thought the “tasty yet balanced breakfast” line was misleading, but I never for a minute thought someone would truly believe it. Oh wait–we live in a culture that considers the Kardashians to be important and contains people who still think Obama’s citizenship is in question. Right. Never mind then.

  3. Good stuff! Larry has a clapper circuit in his electronics supply. I probably shouldn’t show him the bra. But the solar battery charger might be fun.

    Fingers crossed for the Celiac treatment!

  4. but I bought a nook so I could do the epub library books – it’s why I totally eliminated the kindle…

    I should not be allowed to make technology decisions for myself. I’m already mad I didn’t get the color nook – because the covers aren’t as appealing in black & white 🙁

  5. Once again several great links! The celiac treatment news is interesting. For the last 3 years whenever my doc has done blood tests the only thing that comes back is “evidence of inflammation.” I also hadn’t though to us the browser to read DRM’d epub, though I’d mostly want to read epubs from the library, not Google… In reality though there is never anything to be checked out for instant gratification, there is always a hold list so I suppose it doesn’t matter that much.

    Thanks for including me!

  6. I bought the batteries with glue stick a couple weeks ago! I just assumed they were owned by the same corporation, and glue sticks are something that, like batteries, are handy to have around.

  7. A whole bunch of linky’s today…

    I found info that will certainly make my reading life easier…

    A really good reading week for you – that last book, could it be a prequel to something the author has on the backburner…

    I really it hate when a story just drops off like that…

    @Chaos – I knew that “being noble thing” would come back and bite you…. Told ya!!!


  8. If you can crochet a Viking hat and beard then you can crochet anything IMHO!

    I have A Russian Bear on my iPhone. Must read! And thank you for the heads up about the free short!

    Chaos looks like a velvet pillow…abeit with legs 🙂

  9. I think I have enough reading material just from this post to tide me over until I can get to the library to pick up my latest batch of holds.
