Ramblings, Hops, Paul, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

PaulI woke up early this morning with the Tooth Fairy sitting on my headboard laughing while the Chest Cold Fairy put a marvelous spell on me. I apologize to anyone I may have rudely ran into while shopping for cold medicine. When I'm sick, I'm very cranky, and the only thing I wanted to do was to get what I needed and get out, but instead I ran into handfuls of adults on cellphones, teens texting, and others running around with their heads cut off. What is this a full moon? Despite my grumpiness, I was more respectable than any of them.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Season 9My plans to write my paranormal short story came to a halt when I got stuck with a dilemma, write in first person or third person. I made the decision to put the story a side for a few days. I'm not a morning writer, but because of a few sleepless nights, I was up at the crack of dawn fully awake. I turned on the computer and began typing away. The result: two new short stories for children. I may have to change my habits and write for a few hours in the morning.

Cum LaudeI watched Paul on DVD a few nights ago, and I laughed so hard, I thought the neighbors would call the police. I enjoyed Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but I like Paul the best out the Simon Pegg/NickFrost dynamic duo. I also bought the long awaited 9th season of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you don't know me, you should know I love old cartoons from when I was kid. I've watched three episodes out of the eight, and I don't remember them at all. The episodes aired back in 1995, in which I was in the 8th grade and watching cartoons wasn't on my radar.

In the mail Cum Laude by Cecily von Ziegesar; and Sarah 'n' Dippity by Gerald R. Stanek and illustrated by Joyce Huntington Stanek. I bought The Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall, and Bad Moon Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon last weekend.

Question of the Week: If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

My answer: I would be a mysterious, struggling writer. I'm investigating the disappearance of my favorite author and mentor, which leads me into the dark world of demons and other creatures of the night.

Question of the Week: "What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”

My answer: The Stand by Stephen King


  1. Goodness, a lot of people keep saying any number of Stephen King's books as their longest title read. :) Well, I suppose when the man writes tomes instead of books it makes sense. Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. And would you record those demons in a book of your own?

    PS: I'm a new follower! Please check out my post, where I desperately want to be written into GONE WITH THE WIND. Thanks!

  3. i'd love to be my own sort of Katniss character. I recently dyed my blonde hair brown, and now I feel all katniss-y lol! (I WISH!)

    Followin you! Hope you'll come by my blog and tell me what your fav book of 2011 has been so far!

  4. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at and follow along the logic with me!
