Over on rabble there is a review of the anthology I am published in, Other Tongues: Mixed Race Women Speak Out (Inanna Poetry & Fiction series)  edited by Adebe Derango-adem and  Andrea Thompson.


My piece gets mentioned in the review. To say I am excited, well, let's just say I am excited.


Although the bit about "describes herself as half-Cherokee" has me on the defense. The other pieces mentioned in the article, the identities of the authors aren't referred to as "describes herself as this or that.".I am so used to people assuming I am either Italian or Latina that when my identity is revealed it comes as a shock because I don't "look Indian/Native American". It also doesn't help matters that whenever someone claims Native American they shoot for Cherokee. Trust me, I would love to claim I am half Sioux or half Aleut just to avoid the side eye accusation that I am just another person wanting to be a unique special native snowflake. 

I'm probably just hyper defensive, right?

* New entry is up over at Operation:Become Amazon Goddess, 'C25K End of Week One Summary'. Spoiler alert: I talk about running and look on the bright side of life.


* A friend of my mother-in-law recently gave up knitting and crocheting. I inherited said yarn. Now I am working on making items out of this yarn. It's been a challenge. These are yarns and colour patterns I would not normally select. I've spent hours going through the pattern archive on Ravelry, trying to match suitable patterns with the yarn at hand. I have been successful and each skein of yarn will soon be turned into something relatively clever. Although what I am to do with said items once they are made, I do not know. Gifts? Partake in one of those "comment and I will mail you a handmade item" memes? Yo no se. Currently I am knitting up the Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn from the lot into bath puffies using the Bath Puffy pattern from One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet..

* If you are looking to get nothing accomplished and love all things kawaii, might I suggest heading over to Drop Dead Cute? I've spent the past two days pouring through her extensive posting on all things kawaii. It's kawaii madness, I tell you, madness!
