This is Me!

So I decided I wanted to start a video blog. Of course it's not perfect, but hopefully that will change. I'm sure it won't be Oscar worthy or anything, but improvements are good. Right? So see below for my first video blog post. Not sure when the next one will be posted yet, but if you subscribe to my channel. A video shall appear one day.

Blah for a Friday

Today was December 26th. Right? It definitely didn't feel like it with the weather. Not going to complain, because for me? It felt great. Some of my friends would think it was still cold. Sure it was a cold fifties today, but I loved it. I love when winter days get like this. Heck, I'm one of those who don't mind the snow. I really do hope we can get a few more days like this though.

Also it just did not feel like Friday today. I kept thinking it was Saturday. Again, not going to complain because woo tomorrow is Saturday. It just felt weird all day. I felt like I had to do certain things I would do before Sunday approached.

Unfortunately, that's all I have to talk about today. It was pretty much a boring day. The only highlight would be the fact Gabby and I got to go on a nice relaxing walk, thanks to the awesome weather.

How was your day? Hopefully more entertaining.

Hello Captain Hook

I think I found my new writing muse. No, I take that back. I found my new writing distraction. Everyone meet Captain Hook.
My good friend got it for my birthday. I love it of course. I just can't stop staring at it.

Who cares about social networking when I can just stare at Captain Hook. It's the perfect facial expression. No, it's not the eyebrow look I love, but with his head down and staring in my direction? Yeah, why can't I find a guy like that around here in Ohio? Oh that's right. He's fictional. Darn it. Why are all the good guys fictional?

Tonight, I had been kicking butt. I hit a scene where I just could not stop. The pen kept going and going. It never came up for air. Well that is, until I finally got stuck on a word. First, I grabbed the thesaurus and couldn't find the right word. When the thesaurus failed me, I grabbed the next best thing. The dictionary. As I flipped through the pages trying to decide what wording I wanted to use, my eyes moved up. Fingers stopped in the air as I looked at him. Did his eyes just move? I shake my head and look back at the words on the page. I turned the page, darn my eyes. They just can't stop looking.

Again, he's fiction. Why can't I stop staring? It's not like he'll come out of the cutout and walk towards me. If he did? I would most likely drop everything and run out of the room. Or, maybe I would faint?

Maybe while I write or get used to him there, I should turn him around?

Favorite Christmas Song?

So it's that time of year again when the Christmas music starts playing all day long. You can't avoid it. You can try all you want, but it will find you. So I always say, enjoy it because before you know it. Christmas season will end and you'll miss it. Maybe?

Do you have a favorite Christmas song? I think one of mine would have to be Judy Garland's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

My First Love

My mind swims with thoughts of opening up to a new chapter.
Each new chapter captures my attention.
What will happen next?
Can I find the same as her?
He does not have a white horse.
Rather a frown.
And yet, he’s the hero.
He has his pride.
She has her prejudice.
As I grow old, I hope to still find him.
Maybe he won’t wear the top hat.
A baseball hat will do.
Mr. Darcy, my first love.
I’m here for you.

Pongo Better Watch Out

I found an article online about one of my favorite shows at the moment, Once Upon a Time. Of course, I got excited. Any news is good news? Right? After reading the latest news though, I'm not sure what to think. The latest talk is Cruella De Vil.

Anything is possible. Look at what we've seen so far. I'm trying to picture her though as a villain on the show. What character would she be after? Technically we have seen Pongo on the show.

What are your thoughts? Do you think she could be the next villain of the second half of the season? Maybe just a recurring role?

Time For A Cleansing

So, I've decided it's time to do a cleansing. What kind of cleansing, you ask? A cleansing of social networking. I'm not saying goodbye to Facebook or Twitter, but I'm limiting my time. Maybe ten minutes a day. That's even if I get to Facebook or Twitter. 

Hope though, I will have friends and family who will remember this. I've already had a couple friends who posted good news and I missed the announcement. We'll just say the friends got upset with me. I do have a question. Since when is Facebook, the only place to learn about a life changing event? Remember when we would learn about it from that thing called a phone or even a letter? Most people don't even email anymore. So please, if something important is happening, please email or call. Don't leave me hanging. Luckily, I have friends who know me well enough that if they don't email me or call. They better text me these days. 

I also cut back my notifications on GoodReads, which was hard. I'm a book geek. I love chatting with my fellow book geeks. 

I'm just hoping with cutting back, I can focus more on my writing, reading, and getting into shape. 

Hopefully, soon I'll be getting back on my book blog. Fingers are definitely crossed. When that time comes, I'll let you know. 

What about you? Any cleansing needed for you?
