The scraping sound drags me from my sleep.
I cannot move. I cannot scream.
I COULD, but I'd wake up the cat.
Death can wait.
That is absolutely awesome (and I can totally relate).

Re: Drabblecast 407 – The Evolution of Trickster Stories Among the Dogs of North Park After the Change

I was kinda hoping the cats would stick around after earning their voice . My icon shows 1 of 3 black house panthers who tolerate cat-dad and cat-mom. He'd be out the door (as he started out life as a stray). The other 2 are little lemons (bad hips; a touch of brain damage). :( I do love our little...

As the narrator who read this when it first aired over at Escape Pod, I very much echo these sentiments.

If you think it made you cry... I was a blubbering mess after ending that recording...

Oh wow. Now I have to go back and listen to the EP one again!

Everything--from the main story to the music to the art, to the twitfic...Hit me just right. This is why I listen faithfully every week. Currently reloading this so I can hear it again in the car tomorrow. Thanks a million.

The Test

This mouthwash hurts my teeth, I said.
The dentist was solemn. A hand fell on my shoulder.
Now we know. You’re one of them.

Re: Drabblecast 405 – Wet Fur

I first heard this on Escapepod, and I loved it then, but this second listen helped me engage with it more fully. Sometimes when something is really good, more of it is revealed if you read/listen again. I loved how it built and coalesced slowly, the revelation near the end about whose family pet wa...

Re: Drabbleclassics 29- Primary Pollinator (191)

I thought that was cool too, I had never thought of this story from that angle. It reminds me of the Dead Duck Day Drabblenews segment from back in the day, where female ducks have evolved convoluted trapdoor vaginas that they can open for "nice guy" ducks that will treat them right haha.

Man Saved by Pothole

There's a buttload of potholes around here, so we should all be safe from having heart attacks, at least.

Re: Reborn into the Sea

The imagery here is, for me anyway, of vast and infinite evolution that is completely outside the realm of human comprehension.

Uncle Ernie

On a clear day, the basement flooded. We had no sump pump. “I’ll siphon it,” Uncle Ernie said, grabbing a hose. He stuck one end through the hopper and the other into his mouth. Ma said, “That hose has been lying in the garden all summer. No telling what might’ve crawled inside.” Ernie’s eyes widene...

Re: Drabbleclassics 29- Primary Pollinator (191)

This one's an all-time favorite of mine. But the new analysis that follows really articulates what is so awesome about it--that maybe in the end it isn't necessarily sheer might and aggression that ensure natural selection and survival of a species, but rather decency, integrity, and compassion. Wou...

Fourth Grade

Every morning as I wait for the bus, I pray that when we get to school, they will quietly lead us into the gym, and the principal will offer some comforting words and say our parents have been notified to come pick us up or make arrangements, and the guidance counselor will tell us they are setting ...
