Almost There

I’m here… I’m late, but I’m here. You didn’t seriously think that I was going to screw up at the 11th hour for NaBloPoMo? I’ve failed at my mantra about not getting sick, because I can’t currently breathe out of my nose. But, I’m just about 1,200 words shy of of winning NaNoWriMo, though I […]

Goodbye, Dave Cockrum

If I were him, I’d like to go out this way too. Anyone who was a child in the late 1970’s/early 1980’s that was into comics knew Dave Cockrum and Len Wein’s work. To me, seeing characters like Mystique and Storm made me completely fall in love with comic books in general, X-Men specifically. While […]

I’m a Slacker

I did nothing last night, other than finish a book. Remind me to tell you about the fact that I adore Nora Roberts, but after a while all of her books have the same plot devices and characters, just in different settings.* I should feel bad about that, since my Nano deadline is looming, my […]

I Get to Wear Pretty Shoes Again

Day One at the Marietta gig seems to be going well, though driving to work versus using MARTA took a little bit of getting used to this morning. I forgot exactly how bad 85 can get going south, though I’m only on it for two miles to get to 75 North. But, I also don’t […]

Cleaning Day

My mother’s on her way back to St. Marys, my child is playing dress-up, BabyDaddy’s playing some first-person shooter game, and I’m trying to do laundry in between chapters on my Nano novel. Things are getting back to normal around here. Well, as normal as they can get, that is.

Shopping – The Day After

So my mother and I went to IKEA today… and I’m still trying to figure out why. Actually, it wasn’t that bad, and they seemed to have done a pretty good job at re-stocking after yesterday’s insanity, though the poor lady who was ringing us up had to type in all the UPC codes by […]

Black Friday Greetings

Today is one of the days that I’ve purposely scheduled to sequester myself away from everyone and everything to work on my Nano novel, though my ‘sequestering’ is more like opening up my Winamp to shuffle through my mp3s, headphones on, and sitting on the couch in the living room. My mother’s still in town, […]

Happy Turkey Day

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving in the US, and those everywhere else, a Happy Thursday. Yeah, it’s a weak post for NaBloPoMo, but I’m about to head over to my grandmother’s to eat way too much food and nap, if Elizabeth will allow me to.

If Wishes Were Horses…

When we were drinking chatting on Saturday night, I mentioned that I was disillusioned with Atlanta. He tended to agree, of course he’s got like 12 years on me for living here. I was thinking again about our conversation today when I was replying to an email from a different friend, and I think I’ve […]

I Can’t Feel My Nose

It’s cold. Really, terribly fucking cold. Why did I want to move up to Atlanta again? They have, like, real seasons here, and I’m not sure I’m up to the idea that it could possibly snow where I live. I mean, the last time it snowed in St. Marys was in 1989, and it hadn’t […]
