My hubby is taking the kids trick-or-treating tonight. Yea!!!! I get to stay home and hand out candy to all the little monsters. Since I am staying home I am also planning on working on my writing. I was trying to write earlier but instead I started drawing.

I found an old How-To-Draw book when I was cleaning up around my desk. So being that I am the princess of procrastination(I refuse be be Queen), I started drawing instead of writing. For it being the first thing I've drawn in a very long time, I am very proud of it.

I am thinking of dressing up to night just to amuse myself. Still not sure if I want to wear the costume I bought or get another one. I'll let you know later and maybe even post a few pictures.

Current Mood: happy

Well That Was Easy

Not really but, OK. I am still trying to get my computer working right. I hate this thing sometimes. I swear the thing wants to make my life harder. I had to wipe the hard drive and now I am working on installing all the crap back on the damn thing. My writing folder is gone. I was smart enough to have backed it up.

I am planning on working on my silly little comic this week. Really I am. I have a friend who wants to do the art. He keeps dropping hints. It is kinda cute in an annoying sort of way. He is really good so I am hoping to get a few pages to him soon. I am thinking I might do a mini comic out of the beginning of what I have scripted. It just doesn't really fit with the story but I love it. So hopefully I'll have something to show here soon.

To Each His Own

I am trying to find a Halloween costume. I bought one but I'm not sure if I like it. So I am off today in search of a different one. I just want this week to be over already.

I had said I was hoping to go to Seattle this weekend, but the hubby blew up at my mentioning it. So I am still thinking if I should go or not. I might just take off with the kids and go without him. He'd hate that.

my brain is hanging upside down

I had a blast on Fri. night. Jaime and went to Ruth's Chris Steak House for dinner before the show. Damn, they have the best steak I think I've had ever.

Anyway, the show was crazy fun. We had amazing seats and I would love to go see this again but I doubt that will happen. Right now I am trying to figure out how I'm going to be able to go to the Seattle ComiCard Convention and the Portland Comic Book Show. I know I'm going to the show in Portland. I just need to figure out who is going with me.

You Won't Succeed On Broadway

I'm am going to see this tonight. I'm taking the bus into Seattle with my hubby. I am very excited to see this musical. I have wanted to see it since it debuted in NY, but it was just a little to far to go.

Current Mood:ready for anything

Wow. Let me say that again. WOW!!

I had an interesting morning. There I was being a good girl checking my e-mail and I get an IM from someone I had never heard of. He tells me I'm in his contact list but he has no clue who I am. He was wondering if I lived in Atlanta or South Carolina. I tell him no I live in Seattle but I did live in Alabama for a short time. Turns out we both lived in Tuscaloosa, AL. Then out of nowhere he asks me if I'm into bdsm. This caught me a bit by surprise. As it is not all that often I get asked this and not from someone I've never met before. After taking a moment to laugh. I answered honestly. Yeah. I am. We exchanged names and then he asked what I liked best. Again I laughed. It was way to early to be having a conversation like this but what the hell. I had nothing better to do. I told him I liked being the submissive, but if I'm in the right mood I have fun as the Dom as well. He laughed at this because he's the Dom and his wife is the submissive.

We chatted for about half an hour and even exchanged photos. Damn I almost wish I lived in South Carolina so I could get whipped. Sorry but there is no way I could put any of the photos we traded up here. I would get flagged so fast.

Anyway, that was how I started my day today. I was cyberwhipped by a guy across the country who I've never met before. I don't even have to leave my house to be bad.

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder

I really needed rain boots. I walk my daughter to school every day and it is usually raining. So I went out and got rain boots. But I'm not normal when it comes to things I like. So I got these rain boots.

My husband hasn't seen them yet. And I'm willing to bet he will hate them. I will probably get a lecture about acting my age and being an adult. To which I will just stick out my tongue and skip away.

I hope it rains today so I can wear the boots on my walk. Now I just need to find a rain hat. Hmmm.

Current Mood: silly

Make It Happen

It was a fun little show. I will be keeping an eye on them and watching how they grow. I got some comics while there and also some sketches. I did buy 1 sketchbook by Bruce Bogle.

I ran into Brian while I was there and he convinced me to buy The Originals by Dave Gibbons and Creature Tech by Doug TenNapel. He is sure that I'll love both of these books. I trust him when it comes to things I'll like. He hasn't been wrong yet.

Is it bad that my almost 6 year old daughter wanted this drawing? I wanted it too so I got it. Ben Hanson did this and a few others that I got today.

Current Mood: tired

Let Me Go Home

I am headed off to a doctors appointment for Anthony( my baby). We need to go to downtown Seattle for his post-op exam. I hate driving in downtown Seattle. But I hate taking the bus with a cranky 2 year-old more. I know the doctor is going to take 2 minutes to look at him and then say he seems fine I'll see you in a month or two. I will have taken 2 hours out of my day for a visit that will last all of about 2 maybe 3 min.

I'll just have to stop off and get myself a nice latte. I deserve a nice little something.

No news on my comic today I honestly haven't had time. Yes I realize I could be working on it right now but were is the fun in that.

I am on schedule to go to Bell Con 2007 this Saturday. I am making it a family trip and in the process I'm blowing off a cub scout training thing I need to do. They have another one next month on the 11. But I'm wanting to go to the Portland Comic Show.

When I Get Home

I think I might be a little crazy. I have 3 things planned today and that just can't be good. I hope to work on my writing tonight. I just hope I get the chance to breathe and maybe eat a little something. Anyway, I have a lot more stuff to do tomorrow so today should be a breeze.

I have been busy updating my computer all day and I am really starting to hate this damn thing.

See I'm back now. Sorta. I am cleaning in my home office and I finally found the cable I needed to connect directly to the stupid modem(the wi-fi card is all fucked up). Anyway I am online for the moment. I have been trying to get things organized and it has been going pretty good. I want to get the house and the garage done so I can focus on my writing without guilt.

I have done a bit of rewriting on what I have done already and I have been trying to get a better outline done up for the whole thing. See I have been thinking about it.

I had said I would post photos of the camping trip I took way back in August. While i finally have my camera and computer working so there it is. There are a few more pictures if you click on it.

OK I just got info on the friend who lost his leg.

In a drunken stupor (didn't I say I thought beer was involved) my friend decided to walk across the highway. He relied on a brain damaged drunk friend to tell him it was clear. Well, it wasn't! Pedestrian vs 55mph car! Another friends dad was on duty(he's a police officer) but it wasn't his precinct. He did however loan his camera to that department and have to talk to the EMS crew that handled it. He never heard the name and definitely couldn't recognize him in the picture. Well, the EMS told my friends dad that he was embedded in the windshield of the car and they didn't even know how to start peeling him off. His leg was twisted up, around, and over his head. He lost his leg. They had to amputate just below the knee. He is now a peg leg pirate, practically a childhood dream for him. Other than that, he seems to have no lasting trauma. (He's OK in the head, sort of) Unbelievable. None of the people at the scene, including my friends dad, thinks he should have been alive.

This explains why I haven't heard from my peg legged pirate friend in a year(this apparently happened early this year).

I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry.

The Trick Is to Keep Breathing

I've been gone for a while due to issues that concern my family. I'm still working through these and I hope to be fully back in a little while.

I have had a lot happen in a short amount of time and I am just now getting it together. So of course news comes today that a friend of mine lost his leg in a car accident. I'll post more when I get more info.

Let me give you a quick recap of the month I've had since my last post. Here it goes.....

My baby (OK, He's almost 3) had surgery last week, my husband and I are off and on so much my head hurts, my sister has been in and out of the hospital, my great nephew was hit by a car while riding his bike, a niece is missing , a best friend and her daughter have gone missing as well and then today I find out that a friend was hit by a car trying to run across the highway. Knowing my friend, I am thinking beer was involved somehow.

This is why I have gotten nothing done on my comic and why I've been gone.

I am seriously thinking of running away to someplace warm and sandy.
