Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Happy Valentine’s Day guys! I know that most of y’all celebrate it everyday– if you even celebrate it at all– but have a great day regardless. In the words of Dan Savage, Fuck first!

This means before you go out to that fancy restaurant or to that show, get all of the boning out in the beginning. Because after that night out, you just may be too tired to bump pelvises.

Anyways, here’s one of my favorites from the late Gerald Levert. Enjoy!

 

Heading to Europe!!

Kitty bookworm

Hey guys!

I’m leaving for Europe later today (London, Paris, Milan) and I’m super excited! I’ve never been and am going to try to cram as much as I can in 4 days. I also just wanted to post a short post asking, what are you guys reading now? Since I’ve elected to leave my laptop home, I’m going to bring a couple of books with me and my tablet, which is housing about 100 books (I think!). I haven’t decided on which books yet, but they’d have to be mass-market paperbacks to save on space.

I do plan to vlog while I’m there since this is my 1st trip to these countries. And– depending on wifi– I may be snapchatting, so you can also follow me there (murjanian). When you’re traveling, what do you bring with you? Books? Movies? Tablet?

When I get back, I’ll post my 2017 goals list (overdue!) and update you guys on some upcoming trips  and stuff.

Later!!

Murjani’s Miscellania with… Emie –Take 2!

Hey guys! Happy New Year, and I’m back with another episode of Murjani’s Miscellania. For today’s episode, I had the chance to chat with Emie on some updates since our last conversation, her recently released book, Black Snow, conventions and why some troupes in yaoi just don’t work out.

Apologies for the delay in releasing this episode– real life just had to come first. One of my resolutions this year is to be better about blogging, so here’s a first step. And no, I don’t have any sponsors [yet]; when I mention WordPress and Squarespace, I’m just poking fun because that’s all I hear when I listen to podcasts nowadays.

That and MeUndies.

You can find Emie at her Facebook author page here, and you can read my previous interview with E.K. Weaver here.

[Writing] NaNo is over, hello December!

Yes, I survived another NaNoWriMo! I think my official word count was just over 52,000, which is the most I’ve done since joining the competition. The good news is that it definitely got me back in the swing of things. The bad news is that most of this will probably be scrapped because it’s just words– which is what NaNo is suppose to be.

Happy birthday Michael Jackson!!

Apologies that this post is a little late in the day, but I really wanted to get one posted despite all the busy work I had earlier today. I was going to make a Brian McKnight post, and then realized what today is; Michael Jackson was born on this day in 1958. I know my friend Billie has been BLASTING MJ all day– she’s his biggest fan.

I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out my favorite MJ song, and I don’t really think I have one. I mean, I love this song, and Smooth Criminal, and Thriller, and Human Nature… So I guess it’s safe to say that I pretty much almost all of his songs then. Funny thing, I don’t have any of his vinyls… So that’s another thing I’ve gotta add to the list of “Stuff I wanna buy”.

(I’ve got so many lists in my phone it’s ridic but that’s another post).

New job starts in a week, my mom is getting adjusted to London and my nephew was born a few days ago! So simcha all around! Gonna pop out to visit him now, so until next post!
