If you could hang out with any fictional character for a whole day, who would you choose, and why?

Kurt Wagner(aka: Nightcrawler). Because he's an adorable, fuzzy, blue elf who is very sweet yet very mischievous. And he can teleport. Would save us the trouble of walking everywhere. Oh, the trouble we could cause! :P

Writer's Block: Too scary!!

Was there something you were afraid of as a child that just seems silly to you now?

The walking mops in the Sorcerer's Apprentice segment of the original Fantasia movie. It just terrified me the way the just kept multiplying after being hacked up and bringing in buckets upon buckets of water resulting in a tidal wave. The whole thing scared me, but I was more afraid of the mops. Oddly enough, the Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria segment with Chernabog didn't frighten me at all. I actually found him kinda cool.

Writer's Block: Seasons in the sun

How do the seasons impact your moods? Do you take any measures to ward off depression? Would you ever consider moving to a different climate?

It doesn't happen every time the seasons change, but it does happen occasionally. The only time it really seems to happen is around winter time. I get sad, almost to the point of being of being depressed. I remember on one occasion, I did become depressed; lost interest in things I liked, reduced appetite, wanting to sleep all the time, and generally feeling a bit worthless. Thankfully, my friends had decided to take me out to an arcade when I had finally told them about how I was feeling (because really, I'm the type to keep everything I'm feeling bottled up until I can't take it anymore) That was the first time I had truly felt depressed and ever since I've taken some measures during the winter to make sure it doesn't happen again; usually going out with a friend to see a movie, or generally doing something to take my mind off it; like reading and writing. So far, it's worked pretty well, but I do occasionally still get a bit sad. I don't think I would move to a different climate. I kinda like living here.

Writer's Block: Back from the dead

If you could experience being dead for one day to learn what happens in the afterlife, and were guaranteed to return to life the following day, would you do it? Why or why not?

Probably would, just for shits and giggles. Then I'd get to see what sort of special I'll be going to when I finally croak!

Snow storm post

Yeah, we got a snow storm going on. Been snowing long before I woke this morning, still snowing now. Right now I can see a couple of people trying to dig out their cars a bit, even though the snow isn't high enough to block the cars from moving.

Dad drove off to the hospital a few hours ago. Happens a couple of times every year, same old song and dance. Since he has C.O.P.D., he has trouble breathing when it gets this cold out, and then when someone gets a cold, he immediately get it after, which turns into pneumonia and then he has to go to the hospital. The only things that differ are the severity and the transportation and the days he has to stay in the hospital; if he's still able to get over his coughing fits, he can drive himself to the hospital, if he can't get it under control, we have to call an ambulance to take him. Thankfully, its more often the first than the latter. I hate seeing the ambulance outside our house. I think its because I have ingrained in my head that when they take him away, he won't be coming back.

Anyway, I'm just posting because I'm really bored at the moment and this seemed like a spectacular idea at the time. Think I'm getting a bit of the winter blues again, even though this is only the first snow storm of winter. Kind of wishing I was still in school, so that I would at least have something to do during the week instead of waiting to get called in to work. Seems the only time I'm working for sure now is on Saturdays. I'm really going to have to start finding a second job, the only problem is it will have to be temporary seeing as I'm still planning on moving next year. Another thing is finding a place that will hire during the winter season. I need a temporary job to last at least until the end of July. Still not certain of when I'm moving, but definitely before the end of next year. Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll start asking me to work during the week at the shop. Or maybe I could a temp job at the Hall my brother works at, maybe coat check or something. We'll see what happens.

Well, I'm gonna go stuff my face with chocolate. Bye bye!

Writer's Block: Seeing stars

Which character from any film, television show, or book would you most like to take on a date and why?

Oh sweet jesus...ummm...oh dear, there's so many! But date? I'm not really the dating type, but I guess I would have to pick Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) anime. I'd date him cause he's damn hot and he's a demon butler. Even though he has no interest in dating human filth, unless he could somehow get their souls out of it. And I'd also have to beat off Grell with a stick to get to date Sebastian, but giving up my soul for a date with him would so totally be worth it!


Ok, so, for the past six days (I'm counting today) I have been doing my best to write my ass off for NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Its basically 30 days and nights nothing but pure writing. The goal is to get 50,000 words done before midnight on the 30th. I have 12,010 words so far, and 5 chapters done. I can only hope I hot the 50 000 mark before the end of the month. Even if I don't, I'd have a project to work on. And it doesn't matter if you exceed 50,000 words. Hell, the more words the better! Your novel may go beyond it, if the plot bunny allows it.

I'm not gonna say much about my story, other than that it involves murder and magic and mythology. Three lovely M's. I can't gaurantee it'll be a great story, and it will have to be heavily edited, but I will hopefully publish it on a website (most likely fictionpress.com, where my other original works are)

Anyway. I'm a little tired from typing all day. So laters!

Company of Fools by Great Big Sea

I'm really loving this song right now. I think I may put it on my playlist for NaNoWriMo.

"Company Of Fools"

Many a truest word
has been spoken by the Jester
Standing against the tide
Is the noblest of gestures
It's the little pearls of wisdom
That tumble from the light
That makes us laugh until we cry
Because we know that they are right
Within the strangest people
Truth can find the strangest home
So meet me in the village
Where all we idiots go

Bring on the Clowns
The Jokers and Buffoons
I've had the Time of my Life
And the Life of my Times
In the Company of Fools

I'm wading through the quicksand
In the gardens of the gentry
Blooming vacuity
Leaves mind and pockets empty
In the Social Order
I accept the bottom rung
Until the wine is pouring
And the Lord commands a song
Meet me at the staff door
When the posers all go home
We'll gather with the other Fools
And put on a proper show

So here's to the Poorest Poet
Who always pens the truth
Players Writers and Gypsies
The Minstrels and their tunes
I'd rather live an honest lifetime
With those with nothing to lose
Than waste a night
Knee deep in shite
That's polished slick
To look just right
I'd rather live a lifetime in the
Company of Fools

Within the strangest people
Truth can find the strangest home
So meet me in the village
Where all we idiots go
