Chavisory’s Notebook is a chronicle of my continual astonishment with the world.

{People have asked where my blog name comes from, since Googling seems to turn up mainly links back to this blog and not to the original reference…anyhow, Chavisory is a minor character in Keith Donohue’s novel The Stolen Child, which is gorgeous and very, very highly recommended.  No infringement of any kind of Donohue’s work is intended.}

Tumblr: chavisory’s post-it notes

    I just read a comment you left on a jezebel post about LOST and I wanted to tell you thank you. I was so upset after the finale, disappointed after the alternate endings were fake, and thoroughly disgusted that I had wasted 6 years of TV time for such a cop out ending. I remember reading that someone theorized that they were all in hell or purgatory way back after season 2 and thinking there’s no way that’s true. I appreciate your synopsis and will be sharing it with my fellow frustrated friends and family.

    From one Lostie to another,

    Thank you.

    Aw, thanks. Glad I could help. 🙂

  3. chavisory, I’ve tagged you for a meme. Come on over to my blog for details!

    How have I gone all this time without knowing you blog?

    Clueless party of 1, MY table is ready!!!

      I’m not sure, but don’t worry–last night I learned for the first time that my roommate of 7 years (and friend of 9) has a crooked little finger. And here I always thought I was “detail oriented.” 😉

  5. Hi, just wanted to thank you for leaving the comment on my TPGA post. I only just read it after a crazy week or two! It cut off half of my comment as well, so I just wanted to add that it was nice to “meet” you and I look forward to following your blog (when my lousy internet connection allows it). 🙂

    • chavisory said,

      You’re welcome, and thanks for dropping by! I sympathize about the lousy internet connection. I’m up in the country stealing a very bad signal right now. 😉

    The snowflakes are cute… but I honestly thought there was something wrong with my eyes at first. It’s still a bit disorienting even though I know it’s snowflakes and it’s cute when I look at them directly. It just makes it really hard to read your blog! For me anyway. Visual processing problems. *blush*

    • chavisory said,

      Oh, thanks for letting me know! I think I can turn them off. It’s a special option just for December, and I always forget that I left the option on. 😉

    Hi Chavisory,
    I have tried to contact you in the past about translating one of your pieces into Portuguese for my blog autismoemtraducao.com
    I love your writing and I really would love to feature you in my blog. Would you consider it? I have already translated Amy Sequenzia, Nick Walker, Julia Bascom, Ibby Grace and others. I am a Brazilian translator and I have been trying to make the conversation that goes on within the English-speaking autistic community available to Brazilians that don’t read English. Please, let me know what you think!
