This has been an exceptionally busy month for me, both on the blog front, and writing in general. Oddly enough, despite all the words written, hardly any of them were for reviews.

Those who know me, and those who know me well, know that I love to collect words. All sorts of words. But I also collect puns, sayings, and snippets that I find of value, whether it’s to remind me of who I am and where I fit in, to quotes that make me laugh and …
