Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays: Solving Problems

If you could solve one problem in the world, what would it be? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

I'm gonna sound crazy but what I would like is for people to be raised with the knowledge that they can make things better for themselves. True, when compared to the all-encompassing world peace, this doesn't sound so grand, but it is. If people didn't go around blaming everyone else for their failures & issues, there would be a whole lot less suing, stealing, cheating, lying etc...

I want people to take responsiblity for their own actions.

I think that would solve a whole lot of our other problems that we have in the world.

Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays: MOVIES

What is your must-see holiday movie? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

Always and forever, my Christmas movie is A Christmas Story.

I LOVE going around saying "fra-gee-lay! must be Italian!" and thinking about the employes at Chop Suey Palace singing Christmas carols and the way the mom got hysterical when they brought out the "Chinese turkey". I also like telling people "You'll shoot your eye out."

I watch that movie quite often.

Two other movies I like to watch during the holidays, even though they aren't holiday movies are Chocolat, and Under the Tuscan Sun. dreamy movies! so wonderful and inspiring.

Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays: Christmas Lists

What is on your holiday wish list this year? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

Really.... there's not that much. I want the Marc Jacobs rollerball perfume trio (which I know I got because I bought it myself & then gave it to my sister to tell my mom she bought for me) and I want the James Bond Pussy Galore Barbie doll (yes I collect Barbie dolls. Also, I bought it for myself for Aislynn to give to me) and then I want the Chop Suey Palace/Bowling Alley Christmas village house that is from the movie A Christmas Story. They have them on clearance at Walgreens right now & I'm REALLY HOPING my sister is going to get me that for Christmas.

If I ever come across a Chinese restaurant called the Chop Suey Palace I am going to start eating there every Christmas. And begging the employees to sing to me.

Have I ever mentioned how much I absolutely LOVE that movie? I adore it. It is so funny. I just rewatched it last night and was in hysterics.

That's about all I want for Christmas. Oh and maybe the board game Balderdash. The other things I want aren't the kind of things that you can really get from your family, unless your family is the Hiltons or the Kardashians (with a K. don't forget it's with a K) or even the Gates. Like to win the lottery, have some plastic surgery, a Dodge Challenger (with no car payment please), have my own dream house (no house payment please) or even just to own the complete set of ALL editions of ALL the Nancy Drew books (I even have some of those blue tweed looking editions!) and the same with the Dana Girls Books. And the Trixie Belden books (i have all those editions. how cool is that?). If you're new here, I like books :-) I have been told that people think they need a library card when they come into my house.

i'm off to work now. actually, i'm off to shower & then get ready for work & then go... another day at work. sometimes i'm amazed at how much time i spend there. good thing i like my job!

Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

Which December holidays do you celebrate, and why? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

Christmas & New Years Eve, if that can be considered a holiday!

For Christmas we just hang out and do nothing special, which to me is very special and I love it. and honestly, for New Year's, I like to do nothing once again. Getting drunk & being hung over on the first day of the new year doesn't really seem like a good way to celebrate to me.

NaBloPoMo entry #30

my icon is pretty much my reaction to what happened after church tonight. except I can't blog about it cause this is public. damn.

so, it's my last night of NaBloPoMo so I'm going to try to think up something interesting for you.

#1 I have 93% decided to accept the offer to move to Alabama. Not marriage, just the move. for now. I have to get out of here and the more I think about it, the better of an idea it sounds like. that first sentence up there, the one that i can't explain, well it plays a huge part in this decision. I knew these "THINGS" were happening, or at least i suspected, but now I know for sure.

#2 a customer at my work today, Emily, who is 75 years old, told me and my coworker that she always loved a man in uniform. she said when she was younger she had sex with a marine and asked him to only unzip his pants, because it was all about that uniform. then she said that he did take his hat off.

#3 I haven't watched tonight's American Horror Story yet. nope, I was a good gal & went to church. After what was said to my mom, i'm not so sure i made the right decision. well, church of course is the best place for me to be, but maybe i should quit socializing afterwards. i'm very excited to watch tonight's ep though.

#4 I have been catching up on season 4 of Merlin. i love that show, but let me tell you, the chick who plays Morgana is a TERRIBLE actress. she's like Ezma from The Emperor's New Groove. She comes up with the STUPIDEST schemes that NEVER work and are dreadfully complicated. i hate her character. not interesting in the least. plus she half whispers everything she says.



good bye November, hello December

NaBloPoMo entry #29

Today's entry is brought to you by NaNoWriMo (at 55733 words and counting) and my mom. Specifically, my relationship with my mom.

It's kind of sad.

In my novel, my main character doesn't have a close relationship with her mother at all. She's always felt like a bit of a burden to her mom, and so when something potentially serious happens to her mom (possible breast cancer) my MC is sitting in the waiting room of the doctor's office, wanting to feel the way she thinks she is supposed to, but all she feels is completely uncomfortable.

It's been a bugger to write this scene, and I've put it off to the end, even though it comes about in the first 1/3 of the novel, because I know exactly how she feels. At the beginning of the year, when my mom finally confessed that she had some sort of lump in her breast I threw a fit and insisted on going to the Doctor's office with her. And the entire time i sat in that office, I felt ... uncomfortable. That was it. Of course I didn't want anything to happen to my mom, but sadly, my mom and I are not close at all. I don't get her. I don't understand where she's coming from. I think most of the personal life choices she makes are disastrous or too 'giving' for her own good, & I can't see the bright side in anything.

In fact, we have rarely gotten along as anything more than cordial.

How sad is that?

I don't want that to happen with me and Aislynn.

If you have a good relationship with your mom, you should treasure that, and if you don't, well, I completely understand.

It's not one of those things I think I can just go out and start to fix. She and I are so different that if we weren't related, I can't imagine we'd ever talk.

But I do love her.
