John Ward7,493This is my circle for Beta Readers. This circle consists of people who have volunteered to read, evaluate, and critique stories written by other people. The only qualification to be in this group is that you have to be willing to read the work of one of the other members.The way the process works is that once you join, you need to add the circle. After you have added the circle, you can send messages to the members of the group letting them know when you have a story that you'd like to have someone review. Briefly share some details about your story: genre, word count, and synopsis. Then, one of the other members will reply letting you know that they're interested. After that you can work out the best way for you to share the story with one another... and that's it.If you're interested in joining the circle, simply leave a comment here. I'm happy to add you.2012-11-30 13:44:1239603CC G+

Sarah Rios14,886WEDNESDAY IS FOR WRITERSI haven't done a circle share or any individual recommendations in a long time. I figured it was about time to fix both of those :)This is my Overlords circle (named for the way they blithely create and destroy fictional worlds). They post often about writing, or are very well known for their writing prowess. This isn't a complete list as I still have about 200 more people to sort in various temporary circles, but it's a good start. Pick through it at your leisure!As far as individual recommendations, you can't go wrong with +John Ward and +Evo Terra. Both gentlemen post often about writing and publishing. If you're looking for hangouts, myself, +Bliss Morgan, and +Rebecca Blain host writing hangouts fairly often (I know I'm forgetting other people that start these during the day... please jump in and remind me so I can edit to include you, because my memory is terrible).There are no writing Pages in this circle, just writers, so here is the full list of relevant Pages I also have circled:+Vaginal Fantasy (the once a month book review by +Felicia Day and friends)+Literary+ +Teenage Love Zombies (technically a comic, but hey, still writing involved)+Fiction Improbable +Curiosity Quills Press +SPOT +Sexy Briefs +42wd Publishing LLC +Chaotic Motion Productions +2012-08-22 21:52:0211834119CC G+

Cara Schulz6,565Gluten Free FolksThese are people who are interested in GF living - because they have an allergy, celiacs, are doing so voluntarily for health, or they have loved ones who are GF.  I did add in a circle created by someone else - so if you are in the circle and you don't wish to be, let me know.  Some are people, some are pages devoted to GF.I did a notification to everyone in the circle, but I promise notifications will be not be abused coming from me.  At the very most, one a week, but probably more like one a month.  I don't mind a notification if any of you post GF info.  That said, I will do a post later today about GF and will notify you on that.  You can, at any time, let me know you don't want notifications and I'll respect that.2012-07-31 13:47:09631864CC G+

Lizzy is reading Shel Silverstein's "One Inch Tall."

She finishes the poem, pauses for a moment, and flips to the back of the book jacket. She points to the picture of Mr. Silverstein and says, thoughtfully... "If he's only one inch tall, that must be a really, really close up picture."

Six-year-olds have no sense of scale.

Ah, one of my favorite episodes of SG-1, even though I'm positive the science is crap.

But of course, in the Gateverse, who knows how a back hole would affect a wormhole...?

We'd already had crock-pot pork roast with onions and soy sauce when the neighbors showed up bearing gifts; a couple of giant zucchini and a bunch of nice little apricots from their trip east of the mountains.

And yesterday I started to make Laston some goulash (ground beef, tomatoes, onions, corn, macaroni, and lots of paprika), but discovered we were out of macaroni. So I had the ground beef and onions and paprika and tomatoes and corn already in there, and I added three kinds of canned beans in place of the macaroni, and then added chili powder. He loved it, and it is now known as Accidental Chili.

Today I got a question on the Other Social Network asking if I had gotten negative feedback on this GoFundMe, and the answer was no. So I wanted to thank you all, not only those who've helped, but also those who think I'm a fool or worse for asking for help, and have kept your mouths shut on the topic. Thanks.

Yes, I know that it's ten to ten. But Abby doesn't have to go anywhere early tomorrow, and I don't have to be at work until ten. So I am introducing her to Galaxy Quest. She has seen enough Trek to get the jokes.

Oh, yeah, using examples from Disney Junior's Sofia the First to discuss the Be Careful What you Wish For trope, the concept of Intelligence vs Wisdom, that even good people make bad choices, and innate vs learned people skills. (And we discovered on the Disney wikia that Sofia is seven and James & Amber are nine; of course they repeat mistakes, because they're just little kids).

With good discussion even 22 minutes of Disney Junior is educational.

I'm loving the Disney Junior channel. Sharing some of the classics with Lizzy (6) is awfully fun. Right now we're on Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, which I haven't seen since oh... 1988 or so. I had forgotten about Disney plagiarizing themselves, with the Pink Elephants on Parade Heffalumps and Woozles dream sequence.

Olive Oil - it's not just a food.

My mom suggested soaking my horny callused feet in it since I have not been able to afford a proper pedicure.

It feel very... odd.

+Laston Kirkland took one look at the cracks in my heels and volunteered an old pair of socks to the cause.

I realize that last pair of sandals were cheap ones I bought on the Internet, but they would have lasted longer than three months if my feet weren't cutting them to ribbons .

Apparently a few days of this should give me baby-soft feet.

Watching Codename: Kids Next Door with my own kids while doing my homework / laundry / etc.

And they just turned Numbah 5 (Abigail, Lincoln, Abby's favorite, natch) into (effectively) Duane Dibbly by taking away her cool. Big buck teeth, etc.

Given that the last eppy I watched with them had a TV show called "Doctor Time and Space" I suspect this was deliberate.

This is more of a What's for Warm Sunny Days than What's for Dinner. And the name of the drink - Gypsy Tea - may be considered offensive, although it is not intended as such. It's a lot shorter a name than Tea that I Made from Cheap Lipton Tea Bags and Whatever Herbs and Spices I Happened to Have, that's all.

We make this every year in the summer, and year round when we have big gaming groups or whatever. Usually I use agave nectar to sweeten it, but I was out so I used just plain table sugar (and I use about a third of that +Laston Kirkland does (he's from Texas, where sweet tea is a religion)).

But this year I used the same cheap black tea and herbs fresh from our garden (now that Lizzy knows to call is a "container garden" rather than a "pot garden" I feel more comfy saying that).

Quite a lot of fresh mint leaves (two... more »

We forgot how much fun Wii Fit Plus can be, especially because a) we are no longer on the second floor and b) Lizzy is now old enough to do most of what she called "extercises". 

She can even read most of the screens herself now, although she had trouble with the phrase "align your pelvis." "Straighten your hips" would have worked for her though.

No animals were harmed in the making of this post.

The Tigercat is old. I've shared living space with older cats; Rusty lived to be 22. Tiger is 16. But she's never been the most energetic cat, ever since Abby's dad and I adopted her back in the day. 

And today she was sitting on the couch, contemplating the long jump to the floor, and Abby got up, accidentally pushing a pillow over on top of Tiger. The pillow is lightweight and Tiger was not hurt in any way.

But you could practically hear the old-lady grumble in the old cat's head. "Damn two-leg kittens. :grumble grumble: Hmph."

Then she creakily got to her feet (grumble grumble) and slunk into her kitty cave.

She's fine. But I swear I could hear her thinking.

Lizzy is reading Shel Silverstein's "One Inch Tall."

She finishes the poem, pauses for a moment, and flips to the back of the book jacket. She points to the picture of Mr. Silverstein and says, thoughtfully... "If he's only one inch tall, that must be a really, really close up picture."

Six-year-olds have no sense of scale.

Ah, the movie that the first time Abby saw it, I had to carry her out of the theater weeping (rather than her then-ten-month-old sister Lizzy. Abby was five and a half.)

You see, the "pretend cartoon angry robots looked too much like real angry robots."

I think that means Pixar did its job.

It does not bode well for the movie (The Hobbit Part II: Desolation of Smaug) when we can't get it started at first. 

It wasn't until I realized that the Tiger Cat is not transparent to infrared that I figured out the problem.

Awwwww...

11yo Abby is doing a report on the state of Texas. She wanted to know if her Famous Person from Texas could be her stepfather, +Laston Kirkland, "because lots of people have read his book."

Her teacher said no, because it has to be a famous person both from Texas, and in Texas.

But seriously, how sweet.

Note: She has decided on Tex Avery (for creating Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, among others), and Amy Acker (even though she has never seen Ms. Acker in anything, because she owns a bracelet from the local comic book shop referencing the Buffyverse).

Lizzy (6) and I were reading an interview about Doc McStuffins and one of the voice actors made a reference to her "godbaby". The following conversation ensued:

L: Does she mean grandbaby?

Me: No, a godbaby is like someone who a grownup treats like a niece or nephew, even though they are not related. The grownup is the godmother or godfather, and the child is the godbaby or godson or goddaughter.

(note: we went though a few examples for people we know - like +Carrie Miller and +Jason Miller and +Dorri Kay and +Andrea Valenti and then Lizzy made a connection.)

L: Like they're fairy godmothers, except not fairies!

Me: Um... yeah.
