Here’s something that I tried to watch as often as I possibly could when I was younger. I absolutely love this show. It was dark, serious, violent, and very well written. It incorporated themes from Shakespearean and Arthurian stories, creating dramatic, long-running story arcs that mixed Sci-fi elements in a modern time setting.

I got the first season for Christmas, so I’m happy that I can watch it any time I want. It’s too bad that all of the seasons haven’t been released yet, otherwise I’d make sure I got the entire series.

My 9 year old son and I have been trying to find time in this busy summer to play a game for rollis-paints summer giveaway. This week we managed a 35 point game with me playing his Trolls and he played my wife’s Cygnar. It was a very swingy match going back and forth the whole game.

Two years NED

We just returned from my check-up with Dr. T in Alberta, and it was a clean bill of health again. You don’t realize you hold your breath every time, until the words ” Everything looks perfect!” are uttered. This year was a wonderful chance to remake memories too. Two years ago, I was recovering in my sister’s home in Calgary, after my cytoreductive surgery. I was weak and couldn’t really keep food down, so I was mostly house and bed bound for a bit. One day I’d had enough, and I asked Chris and our son to take me to the Calgary Zoo, so that I could see it. I was going stir crazy just staying home! We went, but I couldn’t eat anything ( except maybe water) as I was afraid of not making it to a bathroom. I was too weak to walk on my own, so we got a wheelchair from guest services and they wheeled me all over the place. I had also not gotten to see Lake Louise or Moraine Lake, as when we had traveled for our consultation that April they had been frozen over, but they were places I longed to see and was afraid that I wouldn’t get to. This year? On the way to Calgary we stopped at both lakes, and I took a ton of pictures at both. I got to enjoy them with my lovely dynamic duo and  overwrite those memories. That first time I was in tears that it was frozen over, worried that I’d never get to see it … and here I am, two years later drinking in the sun.
 

In 2012 I couldn’t walk around the Zoo. I wanted to see it because I NEEDED to see something outside of the house, to make promises to myself of places I would see again.  A. and Chris pushed me in that wheelchair, and we made as good as outing as we could before my energy ran out. 

This year I went with my sister, niece and nephew as well as with my guys. This year we walked, and ran, played and ate ice cream.  We checked out all the animals, laughed and posed in front of butterflies and plants. My memories of the Calgary Zoo are the wonderful ones that now overwrite those of that distant year from hell.




And this year?
My son got to meet Dr. T face to face, hold out his hand and say  “Thank you for saving my mom.”

Here’s to making wonderful new memories from now on.

This is from last November, but still seems like it should be shared because

1.  The guy who invented the Super Soaker was a NASA engineer.

2.  And an African American.

3. And Hasbro is a jerk.

For my childhood, sir, I salute you. Also I guess that NASA stuff is pretty cool.

Attanya: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because I love science fiction and fantasy books, but I’m tired of authors treating dragons and robots and magic as more plausible than black and brown characters

Jennifer: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because… when I was 13 a white girl told me it was selfishthat all of the protagonists in my stories were Latina because she “just can’t relate to nonwhite characters.” She made me feel guilty for writing about people like me. 

Aiesha: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because…Black Girls are more than sidekicks or “sassy, ghetto friend”

#WENEEDDIVERSEBOOKS

Posting this a little late, but followers please take the time out to check out this post explaining the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign and more events to come over the next few days! 

Just a reminder that representation is still an uphill battle.
