Last month I wrote a lot about apocalypses and dystopias, a perennial favorite topic here in Parenthetical-land. Those posts, and Presenting Lenore’s Dystopian February, inspired my own theme month:
Welcome to Old-School Apocalypse April!
I’ve been re-reading some childhood favorites from my YA Apocalypse Bookshelf (yes, I really have such a thing). Some hold up brilliantly, some not so much. Stay tuned for more doom-y goodness!
I would say keep me posted, but that’s kind of what a blog is, um, for. Have fun!

MsParenthetical HS project idea: research/write @knowyourmeme style background on internet kerfuffle. More fun than doing so for a news event; same skills.

MsParenthetical What is the point of wax beans? They're like green beans that have had all their flavor sucked out by Bunnicula.
