  1. As we near Galentines Day...

    I appreciate the sentiment. The gifts are just consumerism at it's finest on these types of holidays
  2. As we near Galentines Day...

    Yeah, I'm guessing this may just be a fellow introvert talking (since we're all self-professed book nerds here), but I don't do v-day either. Just another day at work where there are too many sweets around. My advice to everyone - stay away from any communal food areas! The flu season is still in full swing and I for one do not trust my co-workers
  3. Fave beverage/book combo?

    I read that last one as chocolate bubbly wine and though - I need to get some of that!
  4. Fave beverage/book combo?

    Curious to know if you have a certain drink you like to indulge in while reading. I like to drink thematically myself. Cream soda with Harry Potter for example (my poor woman's butterbeer, lol). I drink tea a lot anyways, but I'll try to pick flavors that match settings. Such as Earl Grey tea when I'm drinking Jane Austen
  5. Food in Fiction

    I can say that I've spent a larger than average amount of time trying to imagine what klah tastes like in Anne McAffrey's Dragon Riders of Pern books! It's supposed to be like a coffee drink, but different. In her book Dinosaur Planet I was equally fascinated by a chemist/biologist on the team whose job it was to cook food using ingredients found on alien planets. That idea has really stuck with me, and made me wonder how you make something so, well, alien palatable for the human tongue
  6. Happy New Year!!! What are your resolutions??

    I would love to get back into a work out routine as well, which is pretty much the predictable answer, but I've had it year over year! Some years I'm successful others not so much. 2018 feels like it will be a good one. I did yoga yesterday after all!
  7. Black Mirror and EC Episode

    Has anyone here watched the 4th season of Black Mirror yet? I was curious about reactions to the Archangel episode. I've seen complaints online that it confuses the Plan B pill with an abortion, further clouding the issue of making emergency contraception available over the counter. However, I never interpreted the pill she took as a Plan B generic. I figured since it was a near-future type episode with that degree of tracking technology that the pill was in fact a safe OTC abortion option. Thoughts?
  8. Best TV Show of all time (and why?)

    So this last couple of weeks I've been bingeing the first two seasons of HBO's "The Wire" and MY GOD, this show is hands down some of the best TV I've ever watched. I had heard good things from people before, but I finally checked it out because i needed something to fill the void each week between thew new Walking Dead episodes. If you haven't watched it yet - do it. The Wire is SUCH good writing. It is a character driven show where every person has a story and is important. The setting is Baltimore, and we see the innermost workings of a West Side drug ring and the Baltimore police special detail that are trying to unravel the ring. The politics on both sides is intricate, and the characters often find themselves in lose-lose situations. It does a really good job of showing the bleak realities of the young men, and women, who feel that drug trafficking is their only way to make a living. It also shows how corruption of the police force can prevent good work from being done. I still have three seasons of "The Wire" left, but now I'm watching the first season of the Sopranos, because I am thirsty for more good TV I have been missing out on. What recommendations do you all have? What's your favorite show of all time and why?
  9. TV Review: ‘The Good Place’ Gives You the Good Shirt

    Love this show!

  13. How do I get into/start a club?

    I noticed this new link on the sidebar called "clubs". It doesn't look like I can start a club though. How does this work?
  14. This is why I haven’t blogged lately

    Totally understandable! I don't even have a kid, and I still can't find time to start the blog I keep meaning to
  15. New Members!

    Hi! I know I introduced myself in the old Beta forum, but I'll do it again I'm an aspiring author, who has recently come out as bisexual (at least online, if not in real life). I'm trying to use the writer forums to get myself writing again. What I like about F-BOM is being able to ask questions to the author. I can read the book, and then if I come up with a question I can ask it right away. It's really cool!
