Teleportation

I finally watched the movie Jumper today.  I say 'finally' because the book the movie is based on was one of many books I read when I was doing some early research on how to write about super-heroes in preparation for writing The Legend of Buddy Hero.  That was long before I had any real …

Too Much Stimuli

Been way too crazy busy here.  Work is taking over my life with the added loveliness of mandatory overtime, summer's turning to fall, meaning that there's a whole ton of yard work that I need to finish that I didn't get to throughout the rest of the non-snow months, and a whole host of other …

I Heart Exploring

As mentioned last week, I have a thing for adventures, and, also mentioned, feel that I don't have nearly enough of them.  As part of my standard revising procrastination, I began organizing the photos on my hard drive this week (I am moving forward on the revising, and it's going swimmingly, but I find myself …

Adventure-Time!

Don't let the title fool you.  I'm not off on some adventure today.  Unfortunately.  Nope, stuck at my desk per the usual. However, been dreaming of adventures lately.  Been craving them.  It's odd that I've been in such a place as of late, seeing as I just had a short adventurous trip out to Las …

Tuesdays. . .

I've found that most people agree with Garfield on most things in life.  I, too, have a great affinity for naps and lasagna, and a general distaste for cutesy sidekicks or slobbering imbeciles.  However, there's one thing that I tend to disagree with him on.  Mondays.  I find that I like Mondays.  After the course …

The Return

So, I think I can officially claim that I've returned to writing in this space regularly.  My focus for the past couple months has unfortunately kept me from doing much writing, due to. . . well, life.  Not just life, there was also a bit of reluctance to get back to writing.  You know, the …

Poo Face

Everyone knows that the bond between a parent and their children is strong (at least until the kid reaches the teenaged years) but I have now firmly reached the understanding that this reaches its strongest moment during potty training. The house-breaking of a kid can be painful, tiring, and, well, pretty darn gross.  But, there …

Uncertain Return

I can't say that yesterday's rant actually made things any better, mentally speaking.  However, it did manage to break me away from work and life a tad more fully than other options I currently have available. As such, I'm back for day two of blogging. . . although I'm still not certain if the hiatus …

Hiatus Island

I'd love to say that I've been using my hiatus from blogging wisely, but unfortunately I don't believe I can claim that to be true.  Ever since I went on hiatus, life went wild with busy-ness.  So much so that I feel as though I haven't had a moment to myself lately. In fact, the …
