2015-08-16_1439751401I’m Rara. Rawra. The Saur. Rarasaur.
Radhika. Radha. His wife.    

Oh, call me whatever you want so long as you say it kindly.  The important thing to note that is that I’m obviously basically a dinosaur.

Welcome to my little bloggy town!

‘Round these parts, you’ll see that I blog (nearly) everyday about what makes us tick, the awesome internet, cryptobeasts, prison, widowhood, muppet philosophy, and blogging.

Before you get started, here is a list of things you probably should know:

  1.    I love lists.
  2.    I live in Southern California and can’t stand the beach.
  3.    I’m a techie, nerd, and geek. (Yeah, they’re different things.)
  4.    I don’t eat sugar. Usually.
  5.    I spent 438 days incarcerated and was released July 18th, 2015.
  6.    I’m here for you if you need something– just email me.
  7.    The moon is 63,057,742 very tall giraffes away.
  8.    I read thousands of books a year and never blog about them.
  9.    My husband — artist, blogger, writer, Dave Martinez (Pen name, Grayson Queen) — passed away in May 2015 from kidney failure.
  10.    This blog turned 3 years old in August 2015.
  11.    The picture above was picked by popular demand.  I generally don’t like pictures of myself where I’m not holding a cup of caffeinated beverage, or sitting by a dinosaur.

I love people who do things, people who hate things, people who love things, and (probably) you.

Get comfortable, say hey, and tell me a little something about what makes you tick so we can start doing frightfully wondrous things.

Come on, let’s go!

  1. Hi, Rara! I’m so glad you liked my post “The prisoner” I wrote in my blog “life is great” for the interesting weekly challenge you posed to us some weeks ago. It means a lot to me. I’m honoured. Thanks a lot.


  2. Thank you for stopping by and deciding to follow my insanity. I really enjoy your blog too! My hubby has to put up with my diabetes also – he feels your pain 😉


  3. Hi, Rara. I like your new layout very much. You know I’m your faithful follower and I admire you. Now I just discovered you started following my blog!. I’m honoured. Thank you so much.


  4. Hello there Rawra, thank you so much for following my blog! I hope you will enjoy my posts as much as I do yours. Come and visit as often as you like, I’m always happy about guests who feel at home in my world. 🙂


  5. Well! That was fun! You have a most unique and attractive blog here 🙂 It’s very cool here in bloggy town and I think I shall enjoy making myself at home…now…is there any chicken hanging around your bloggy town? Icewolves have a serious love of endless supplies of the feathered friend!!


  6. Hello Rara. I’m so pleased you found my blog and liked my work, not least because in the process I found your wonderful blog. The randomness of the blogosphere is amazing. Here we are, pinging off each other, occasionally grouping into larger blogoids. Well I’m on your world now, and you are on mine. If I may, might I recommend my post ‘on the origin of cats’ to you. Other feline fanciers have enjoyed this particular randomness.


  7. hello! I can’t believe I haven’t been here yet. What a fun, inviting and warm space you’ve created. I’ve seen you “rawring” on other friend’s blogs and I’m way overdue to visit. I just love the look of the place and can’t wait to see more. I’ll definitely be back 🙂


  8. Hi rara… thanks for visiting my blog..

    While reading this page I can feel tremendous energy generating from it.. like the theme a lot too.. would like to explore more here…


  9. You are an amazing poet, high-speed with a touch of hip-hop, as well as an amazing sweetheart. May I impose on you to introduce me to your diabetic husband so I can share diabetes stories and ponder with him what he must have done to have brought himself such amazing fortune to have you as his wife?


  10. This is one of the best blogs I’ve come across in terms of content, style and wit. Glad to be a follower and looking forward to more posts 🙂

  11. Can I imitation your about page on my own? I really like the gif! Then again, I haven’t done a gif in years. Not sure I’d even remember how to do it. I seem to recall a magic word that might help…Goodle. No. Gooble. No. Well, first I seek your blessing before I even attempt.


  12. Hello beautiful friend 🙂 previously we were starting to get to know each other and my main blog was Contortum Designs. Just recently I felt the need for a new space as my purpose in blogging has changed quite a bit. My new blog is called Sidereal Catalyst, I’d love it if you’d follow me over there! You can find it @ http://www.siderealcatalyst.com – I am so happy you are back, I just connect with your writing and find myself so inspired by you! I hope we can continue getting to know each other for a long time to come!
