Nerd Church - We're All Just Muddling Through

 This is a weird one... I regret nothing. I regret everything.

'We're all Just Muddling Through' graphic

We're all just muddling through.

We don't know, do we, how things are supposed to go, how we're supposed to be, what we're supposed to be?

Do you think we're supposed to know?

It would be nice if someone did, I guess - if someone seemed to have a clue how to steer this whirling, swirling, careening force of nature that is humanity heading slow-quick to...

...wherever it is that we're heading.

I hope it's somewhere nice. But that would be something of a surprise, given our current circumstances.

Does anyone ever have a plan go to plan?

I'm not sure I ever have.

No matter how well-constructed, all my plans seem to burn to ashes, blow away on the wind, or whatever other metaphor you want to use.

Not that I'm complaining. - I'm not sure I have any grounds for complaining. I'm not sure I don't, either.

We're all just muddling through.

The entire freaking human race crawling through the future in uncertainty.

And it's ugly.

And it's beautiful.

And it's oh-so messy.

We're all hot messes. 

Each and every one of us. 

All so scared of other people seeing how messy we truly are. It would be funny, if it weren't so sad-sweet-sad.

We're all just muddling through.

Doing our best to put one foot in front of the other.

And hopefully that'll be enough.

...If anyone ever figures out what 'enough' is meant to be.

I'm blaming this one on the universe 😅

Whatcha think?

Friday Fics Fix - Like A Whole Season Arc of Supergirl


'“Alex,” he said quickly, his voice strained. “I need you to overrule security protocol and allow me access to a cell in the basement-level holding facility. Please listen carefully, I require several apparatuses to ensure my escape is at its lowest likelihood-”'

'Fics Fix!' with purple background and white lightning bolt shape

Good Supergirl fics are like buses (which ironically do feature in this fic) - you wait what feels like forever for one to come along, and then two come along at once!

OK, you might remember a couple of weeks ago I recommended a Supergirl fic.

...And I'm here to do it again.

...From the same fic author.

They deserve it, OK?! 😅 They're good fics!

Nerd Church - Some Reminders To Myself (And Maybe You, Too)


'Some Reminders To Myself (And Maybe You, Too)' with a pretty purple-y sky background

It's been a rough week, mental-health-wise.

So I figured I needed to remind myself of a few things - and hopefully some of them will be helpful reminders to you, too.

Disclaimer time: I am not any kind of mental health, medical, or psychological professional. I'm a chick with a blog.

Friday Fics Fix - This Is An Angst-Fest


'Tony Stark had, until now, been having a good day.'

I'm not gonna lie: this is an angst-fest.

This is pure, premium, 'should we be worried about fic authors?' angst.

...Which is why I love it, ofc. 😅

Nerd Church - The Devil Wears Double Standards

Warning: this post briefly discusses sexual assault and slut-shaming/victim blaming.


I recently read The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger.

And while I largely enjoyed it, and it's really well written, I have Some Thoughts™ about the way it treats women - especially women with any type of ambition or aspirations.

'The Devil Wears Double Standards' with a red high heel shoe

The Devil Wears Prada is a book about Andy, who becomes an assistant to Miranda Priestly - boss b**ch in chief at fashion magazine 'Runway.'

Miranda is a living nightmare who seems to delight in making her assistants' lives hell.
