Anne, we’ve been blog friends so long that you had a kid, made another kid, carried it for 9 months, gave birth, and now the kid is 7 months old. Hooray to friendship! Loading...

Wonderfully rich. It conjured so many emotions. A lump in my throat, a tear to my eye. (Your baby had a lot to say about it, too :).) Loading... Reply annelogan17 on December 23, 2018 at 8:38 pm haha yes it was very complex, I struggled finding an appropriate way to talk about it, which is probably obvious in the video LOL Loading... Reply Catherine Leipciger on December 23, 2018 at 11:45 am December 22, Returning to the Problem: This story was too freakishly timely given the state of affairs in the world today. It was a difficult read, though. The author called it a “frankenstory” in his Hingston & Olsen interview (https://www.hingstonandolsen.com/2018/22/eugene-lim-returning-to-the-problem), and I think that pretty much sums it up. I can’t say I found it an entertaining read, but there were some interesting tidbits in there (and only 1 footnote). Today’s cover reminded me of a prison. Coincidence? I think not. I, too, honed in on the line you referenced. Loading... Reply annelogan17 on December 23, 2018 at 8:38 pm Hmm glad i wasn’t alone in that! And I just received a Donald Trump mask in a holiday gift exchange (sigh) Loading... Reply Laila@BigReadingLife on December 23, 2018 at 2:28 pm I love your gold scrunchie! These stories sound intense. Yay for epidurals! It’s a bummer about the chocolate advent calendar. Maybe next year you should just go nuts and buy a new kind of chocolate treat for every day in December. 🙂 Loading... Reply annelogan17 on December 23, 2018 at 8:39 pm thanks-the scrunchie is fun right? I love it too. And yes, very intense story today 🙂 Loading... Reply FictionFan on December 23, 2018 at 5:12 pm I think you should let Arthur review the next one! The second one sounds as if you found it really thought-provoking, which isn’t always easy in a short story. Maybe next year you should MAKE a chocolate advent calendar where you choose all your own favourite chocolates… Loading... Reply annelogan17 on December 23, 2018 at 8:39 pm I was thinking I should force my husband to make me a chocolate advent calendar LOL Loading... Reply Talk Back to Me!
