I am SOOOOOOOO proud of myself!

I truly am. I did it, I wrote 50,000 words of a story I LIKE and that I will work on to enter into contests.

I still haven't worked out the scam, but I will!

Yay Me!

Dum da dum dum

Yes, I did. Way too many people @ Walmart & @ Old Navy. Got some cute tees @ ON, a fleece jacket at Walmart & a fleece jacket I liked better @ Old Navy. Oh, & undies.

I'm at 46988 words @ NAMO. Only THREE days left!

RIP Gourmet

Sorry that Gourmet is folding. As a writer, dwindling magazines, to read and to submit to, are sad news. This image is from their Halloween Treats online.

Looking for a Recipe

I want to make Pumpkin Bread. Since I've just moved to Vancouver (relatively speaking) I don't have all of the equipment to make it, but I'm working on it.
Won't be finding a doctor here in Vancouver because of the fact that Medicare doesn't pay the losers enough to warrant accepting it. So, the next couple of months should be interesting. Zoloft is the first to go.

Jennifer's Body

Just saw it. Thought it was a lot better than the loser critics made it out to be. Amanda Seyfried was fabulous and I thought Megan Fox could act. The problems were all with the screenplay. If there had been no voice over (and it hadn't begun in the mental hospital ~ though I love her kicking!) it would have been great. Both actresses inhabited their roles, so no explanations were necessary.
And the kissing scene? Excellent! I love that both actresses went for it. Very strong scene.

I wouldn't hesitate to use either actress, if I could just get around to finishing SOMETHING!!

Eight of Swords

Eight of Swords Eight of Swords by David Skibbins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Liked very much, enough to search out the others. The voice is very strong, a little dramatic, but I love Tarot and this was a fascinating read.

Book 1 of this series. I'm just updating my GoodReads tonight.

High Priestess

High Priestess (Tarot Card Mystery) High Priestess by David Skibbins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked it. The prose is a little full of itself, by the observations of a 60s underground hippie are great fun!

I am researching Scheherazade for a play I'm writing. Which has nothing to do with The Arabian Nights, but you never know, once the juices begin to flow.
This Synopsis of the Tales is very good, because they may inspire me. The image above is a beautiful rendering of her.
Wish me Luck!

Mark Harmon

Mark Harmon appearing at Weather Girl. He's so honest! He says that for 8 years he volunteered to come to sundance, which would be on his own dime, and he was refused. I like Mark Harmon. I think he's a decent man, unlike redford, who I think is truly creepy.

Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus

Terry Gilliam
Writers: Terry Gilliam, Charles McKeown
Cast: Heath Ledger, Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, Lily Cole, Andrew Garfield, Verne Troyer, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Jude Law
Plot: The story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary 'Imaginarium', a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. Long ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr Nick, in which he won immortality. Many centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his first-born reached its 16th birthday he or she would become the property of Mr Nick. Valentina is now rapidly approaching this 'coming of age' milestone and Dr Parnassus is desperate to protect her from her impending fate. Mr Nick arrives to collect but, always keen to make a bet, renegotiates the wager. Now the winner of Valentina will be determined by whoever seduces the first five souls. Enlisting a series of wild, comical and compelling characters in his journey, Dr Parnassus promises his daughter's hand in marriage to the man that helps him win. In this captivating, explosive and wonderfully imaginative race against time, Dr Parnassus must fight to save his daughter in a never-ending landscape of surreal obstacles - and undo the mistakes of his past once and for all.

Easy pass, a lot of movement, something
gloats, threatens to bite the girl, but
grinds its teeth instead. Tongue to teeth,
slowly, as if counting the enamels, piano
then dismisses, still tonguing still reaching
but tongue to gums transfers sensation.

Adrift, undulating nodes of thought first
the pink skin

There is No Liquor in this Muse!

I am packing, because I am leaving Las Vegas and heading to Vancouver WA. I am a poet and playwright and will be dedicating myself to THE CRAFT! Though I wish I didn't have so many books.
