The Most Appropriate Names

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 30, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Just caught the news from Canada this morning, an indecent exposure in a park in Ottawa. I’ve never understood why people want to do such things, why they have the need to expose themselves to others to get some sort of thrill. I mean, does it really do anything for them? Is there a sexual […]

Tucking Myself In

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 29, 2014 in Personal |

There are good sides, and there are bad sides to living with a nurse. I hardly need to mention what the good sides are, and I’m not going down the fantasy nurse in uniform road here. The bad side is, of course, that nurses work all sorts of strange hours and we often don’t get […]

A Little Heads-Up On Scams

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 28, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

In case anyone is wondering why I have often written about Internet and mail scams, I thought you might like to take a glance at this article from Market Watch. It’s a long read, but well worth the time since the level of detail the writer goes into shows exactly how at risk each and […]

Twitter: The Past Belies Our Innocence

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 28, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s strange how some people seem to forget the old (Internet old) adage that what you post on the Internet is never forgotten. At least, it is never forgotten once someone else has seen and taken note of it. If you manage to delete it beforehand – which negates the point of a post, tweet […]

Rules, Regulations And Revisions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 27, 2014 in Internet |

Where would we be without rules and regulations? Some say that life would be much happier, easier, less burdened by paperwork and I can definitely agree with the last sentiment. At the same time, though, we would all be open to so much abuse from the unscrupulous, from tricksters, marketers, industry and advertizing we’d hardly […]

Facebook And Neil Trotter

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 26, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

You’d think that most people who spend any time on the Internet, or who have been a party to the scam mails over Neil Trotter and his lottery win, would have realized by now that there is something wrong with the whole thing. I’ve covered the scam here and here and it has been well […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 25, 2014 in Publishing |

This morning it came to an end: my Goodreads Giveaway of free copies of The Temptation of Words with, to my surprise, over five hundred people signing up for one of the two copies on offer. Equally surprising the high number of people who marked it as To Read when they entered the competition although, […]

It Rains In Paradise Too

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 24, 2014 in Personal |

This morning I had the dubious pleasure of seeing that nothing is really what it seems, nothing is always constant. We had a storm last night. That is, we had a very brief, heavy rain storm which swept by our small town – thunder and lightning in the distance – and was gone almost before […]

Review: The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 23, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

There are times when it is hard to tell whether a book is for children or for adults, especially when it comes to a fantastic tale revolving around children and other worlds within a world. In this work, Neil Gaiman has managed to intertwine both the fears and lives of a child with the almost […]

Reading: Quiet Time

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 22, 2014 in Personal |

I have absolutely nothing planned for today, it is one of those days when I can just sit down and do whatever I want without any pressure, without worrying about appointments, college work, housework or anything else. And I’m on my own. We still have Spring Break, although the changing weather means I can’t really […]
