Kicking it Old School…

Here's a few #ThrowbackThursday gems that I dug up for you! Clearly, my mother was setting me up for a lifetime of housework. I can't be more than 2 or 3 years old in this pictu...

Finding My Way…

It's been such a long time since I wrote anything of significance. My novel is on the back burner. And my blog? I guess you can say it has been on hiatus. It's not that I am withou...

The Pen's In My Hand, Ending Unplanned…

I often write about change, encouraging people to take charge of their own lives and make the necessary changes to live happier and more fulfilled. I am painfully aware that it can...

We Disengage, We Turn the Page…

I am a small, petty little person. I like to think that I'm not, but when you boil it down...well...there it is. Back in March, I made a decision to purchase a 3-day VIP "Norman...

Peddle That Crap Elsewhere…

Today would have been a rather clever Top 10 Tuesday list, however that post will have to wait. It seems I have been super-spammed. I'm used to getting a fairly decent amount of fa...

Write Right…

I've managed to get a lot of writing done lately. In face, the words on the pages are finally starting to resemble a novel. It may be, that no one other than myself will ever read ...

Zombie 101 Panel…

Finally finished the Charlotte Comicon Zombie 101 Panel video. Camcorder crapped out on us that morning, so we had to settle for compiling cell phone video. Improvisation is key wh...

If Happy Little Bluebirds Fly…

Have you ever felt like you were meant for greater things? Do you sometimes wish that you were doing something different with your life? Of course you answered yes to both question...

Charlotte Comicon…

What an awesome day! Once again, we worked for Charlotte Comicon. We were in charge of the costume contest, registration table, and basic crowd control. The hubby handled video and...

Breaking the Rules…

Wednesday. Humpday. That time of the week when we're "supposed" to post pictures with no comments. "Wordless" they say. Well, I'm about to do the exact opposite and use my Wednesda...

Clear the Cache…

There was a point last night when I thought I would actually be asleep before midnight. And then the universe chortled as it kicked me in the baby maker. Half of my site was gone. ...

Where's Your Head At? …

It's funny how the best ideas always seem to come to mind when you are in the least favorable position to record them. I can be laying in bed, driving the car, taking a shower, sit...

All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy…

Stephen King once said, "If you don't have time to read, you don't have time to write."  To say that those are wise words would be an understatement. Never mind the fact that it's...

From Sea to Shining Sea…

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissol...

W.W. (Lost in Time)…

Wordless Wednesday...Lost in Time... Okay, so this isn't exactly a "wordless" post, but I'm sure when you see these photos you will forgive me. This is just one of the images t...

As You Wish…

Being born into Generation X, it was almost a given that I would be raised in front of a television. Pop culture was just as much a part of my daily upbringing as school work. Much...

Less is More…

When it comes to movie adaptations, I try not to be a purist. I try to go into each one with an open mind, and a chip-less shoulder (a difficult task). Sometimes, the source materi...

Lost In Translation…

Do you ever catch yourself "casting" a novel while you are reading it? I do it all of the time. The instant I pair a familiar face or voice with a character, to the setting describ...

I Beg Your Pardon?…

One thing I have truly enjoyed about letting the fangirl flag fly on Twitter and blogging on this site, is getting to know the Walking Dead Family [ #TWDFamily ]. I know that I hav...

Of Course It's A Rant…

If you haven't figured it out by now, I am no longer in the hospital. I was released on Memorial Day and spent the next ten days administering IV antibiotics through a PICC line at...

Adventures in the Hospital: Part VI

How many times can one man use the word "fart" in a sentence? I wish I had kept track. I just finished my morning respiratory therapy. My RT--the prepper guy--thought that this wa...

Adventures in the Hospital: Part V

Have you ever had one of those days where you just know that you were supposed to meet someone? Like fate just stepped right in and touched you both, for whatever the reason? This ...

Adventures in the Hospital: Part IV

Once again, I was up, showered, room picked up, breakfast order phoned in, cuppa tea in hand all before 7am shift change. I can't for the life of me explain how I'm doing this. I c...

Adventures in the Hospital: Part III

Have I ever told you about my respiratory therapists, or RTs? Most of them have been working at this hospital for years. And so our paths have crossed numerous times. There's one ...

Adventures in the Hospital: Part II

What is it about hospital air that gives me a sinus headache? Does anyone else ever feel that way? I know my nurse was having the same issue yesterday. It's like being on an airpla...

Adventures in the Hospital: Part I

I'm sitting here on the 8th floor of the Medical University of South Carolina's main hospital building. I have a fairly decent view of the city; church steeples and historical roof...

Just a Taste…

I never thought I'd be one of those people who shares excerpts, however, I know a particular person whose smile would shine just a little brighter after reading it. This one's for ...

I Don't Like Mondays…

"The silicon chip inside her head gets switched to over load..." ~The Boomtown Rats I swear, this is how I feel today. I try to stay as optimistically positive as I possibly can, ...

Adventures at XCON…

I've been to a few comic conventions in my time. I have done my fair share of gaming, both table top and electronic. And I am pretty good when it comes to cosplay. The first--and l...

Trekkies Abound…

This weekend, Trekkies will be taking over! From Vulcans to Puppets, there's something to entertain everyone! First off, unless you've been living under a rock, you already know t...

That Thing You Do…

Call me a hopeless romantic, but there's something about the "butterfly" moment in a film that just does something to me. I can't help it. When you have committed yourself to your ...

A Sandwich Would Be Delightful…

I'm back! Did you miss me? I was not available to blog last Thursday through Monday. It was the kick off to Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. There was a news clip on Thursday (I'll...

W.W. (May Day Lungs)…

Wordless Wednesdays: May Day Lungs... This month, do what you can to help make CF stand for Cure Found.

Is That Really Necessary? …

According to the internet, a pet peeve is a minor annoyance that an individual identifies as particularly annoying to them, to a greater degree than others may find it. We all have...
