Knitters 3. parUNts 0.

The Childfree Culture

April 12th, 2012 · No Comments · ChildFree, Lori

Literary Devices in Modern Entertainment (and a love/hate book list)

September 23rd, 2011 · 3 Comments · ChildFree, Lori

At the most recent Austin No Kidding! monthly supper, we were talking about all the terrible books we “had” to read in high school. I was amazed that this group of mostly well-read people had a lot of same opinions I did on this topic. One member brought up some terrible “work” that was used […]
