Hello there. I write things. Sometimes good things. Mostly, I write to find myself. If I can entertain you in the process, then that's just the derivative icing on the proverbial cake!
Not Quite Nellie Part 3
There is pasta waiting for me just around the corner, and I am so very hungry. I hadn't eaten since 8 am, and it is now 6:30. It had been a VERY long, exhausting weekend, and I really could use some comfort food.
To the Moon and Back
I hit 18 the way I was always expected to: thin, pretty, clean, smart, graduate on good standing after 4 years of high school, sober, college prospects, no children, and no arrests on record.
The Lake Bed
She lay on the filthy bed, and tried to ignore the sensation of grimy handprints, still warm on her naked flesh. She has a break now, it seemed, from the hours of rutting she'd had to endure that day alone. They would be back soon, she knew, wanting more. Always wanting more. They took what they wanted, and left their filth and feces behind, smeared all over her skin.
Halloween Movies for Fellow Scaredy-Cats
There are so many more funny than scary movies out there: Evil Dead, Buffy, that new movie Freaky, What we do in the Shadows, One Cut of the Dead (which I am actually too afraid to watch still). These 12 movies are the ones I keep going back to, and actually quote on a regular basis. If you, too, want to laugh like an idiot after telling someone "you have some red on you", or burst out in an insane giggle fit when you see a woodchipper, then these are the movies for you! I will try not to write any spoilers, so don't worry.
The Magnificence of the Evil Duchess
I don't know how the rest of you get your pets, but they have always just sort of 'happened' for me. A cat will wander into my house and suddenly I have a cat named Koby. I see a dog hurt on the side of the road and next thing I know Indiana Jane (who turned out to be a wolf) is following me around the house. I hear a cat screaming while being thrown around by some kids and before I know it I have a screaming cat in my car. I see Guinea Pigs being abused in a classroom and I am suddenly the proud owner of Brave Sir Robin and Pfeffernusse.
My home has been A pile of rag tag bits Tied together in precarious ways Always moving Away from me Hard to find ~~~
A'tuin Your World
So many worlds, so little time! I thought I wouldn't be able to pick one as the best, but after a few days of reading over Piers Anthony, Mercedes Lackey, Ursula K. LeGuin, and so on I then laid my eyes on Terry Pratchett and it all clicked into place.
A Day in the Life of a Banker
I am jolted awake by the concerned voice of my husband speaking to my co-workers. It is 10 A.M., and I am an hour late for my shift at the bank! I jump out of bed and get ready in a frenzy of cloth and various scented gels while my husband shoves food in a bag for me.
