Hey — I do still exist. I do, still, even write. Just not here, all that much, lately. But! It’s 2018, and I’m going to make more of an effort to publicize the things I do write when I’m not writing here. I’ve been blogging for the CBC’s Parenting pages of late, where some folks seem think I’m against Christmas. And magic. You can read the comments. This week, though, I’m unabashedly against lootbags. Especially the ones with the unsharpened pencils. Have a look, and maybe I’ll pop up again here sooner rather than, say, eight months from now.
