Technically I registered this domain in late 2014, then paid a hundred dollars a year to do nothing with it on GoDaddy. The name, 'raygunsue', is one of my default usernames, along with 'friedectoplasm' and 'quidprocrow.' The last I stole from Kay Ryan's poetry, the second I stole from the Descendants, but Ray Gun Sue is my own cheap devising. I know it's used furniture, but having grown up on a rural Pennsylvania horse farm while wanting desperately to be a 21st century woman, space-western is an appealing theme to me.
Seemingly without clear genealogy, many personal collectives have subtitles: The Epic Something-or-Rather Network, or, in this case, The Puer Aeternus Organization. Sheila Heti put this work by Mary Louise Franz on her list of surprise self-help books, a Jungian psychologist trying to explain what's tricky about the archetype that energetically begins projects without finishing them. Hands up if that's uncomfortably accurate. () It ends up being an ode to hard work.

Currently this is layout 2.0, featuring Bee & Puppycat of the eponymous animated and comic series. While almost-not-quite unemployed, I discovered Bee, who works for a transdimensional temping agency with her ferociously adorable cat. It's rare that I find fantastic works of fiction about my fellow chubettes, but Bee is round from toe to the coils of her (currently puppy-cat'd) hair and flawed and fun, all the protagonist things bigger women sometimes miss out on.
