Beer!

So, just finished watching the documentary called "How Beer Saved the World", and I have to say that I'm impressed by the information contained within.  Some of it I was previously aware of, some of it will mean that I have to go out and do some fact checking, because it's pretty incredible stuff. Unfortunately …

Admissions

I hate social networking.  I'm horrible at it, and there are very few things I want to do less than spend the time trying to come up with witty ways of telling people what I'm doing, as well as come up with things to say in response to other people telling me what they are …

Mops=Life Metaphor

Watched UHF this morning.  Although this film will never make it to any of my top ten lists of films I enjoy watching, I find myself being rather entranced by the film.  There's something about it's goofy rationale that just pulls me in. Yet, it's a rather inspiring story, hiding within the millions of parodies. …

Recalls

Wisconsin politics are, as the nation is already well aware, "nuts-o". But they are, I believe, about to get a helluva lot worse. I've never been one to join either side of America's partisan politics.  It's partially due to my childhood being brought up as a Democrat-hating Christian, mostly because I hate having to take …

Radio Silence

I've been pretty quiet in the internet world for the past week or so.  This has been mostly unintentional.  I've had quite a lot on my mind with the fact that I've come to the realization that breaking into the publishing industry is an insurmountable task.  Working through in my head how to go about …

Hangover Clarity

Friday night marked my first real foray back into the world in quite some time.  Between the winter months and being busy with the baby, I just haven't felt the energy to actually get out and have fun like I used to.  However, under the premise of a going away party for someone I barely …

I realized something this week.  All my life I have thought it would be possible for me to attain rock star status.  Although I may have tried my hand at music for a couple of years, I don't mean that kind of rock star. . . at least not exactly. I mean, I had always …

I Miss Writing

I know, you want to check out my Writer's Voice entry.  It's here. Life has officially gotten in the way of any form of writing lately.  And that makes me sad.  Heck, even this site has barely been touched over the course of the last weekend.  I've been really wanting to work on these new …

Sick Day (cont.)

Looking for my Writer's Voice entry?  It's here. Jeez this week has been crazy.  The start of the week looked like it was going to be highly productive.  I began my Monday tackling tasks like none other.  I had plans to begin writing again, as I have some really fun ideas for what I want …

The Writer’s Voice

I just so happen to have beat out the hordes and actually made it into the first stage of The Writer's Voice multi-blog contest dealie.  Details of the contest can be found on Cupid's site here.  As part of the contest, they ask that I put my query letter info and the first 250 words …
