Monday Poem-Creation’s Battle

Monday Poem-Creation’s Battle

I’ve decided to join the Monday Poetry Train.  Click here to visit Rhian’s blog, the writer behind this wonderful new idea.  She also invites you to join the train and add your site to the links. I think this is great.  The world can always use a little more poetry. Creation’s Battle By Rinda Elliott […]

Confession

Confession

Ever sit up half the night because you can’t put a book down?  Ever find yourself sobbing uncontrollably in the early morning hours experiencing a tangled mass of confusing emotions?  Isn’t it something when we invest so much emotionally into a character that when he or she is ecstatic or hurting and devastated, we feel it as […]

Storm and the Balls

Storm and the Balls

I thought about talking up Storm Large and the Balls on weekend music and art.  I really like her music, find her performances amusing… and well, the hubby says she’s a work of art.  He does like em tall, eh? Years ago, I came across a little video of a woman called Storm Large performing her version of […]

Whining, Calories and Puffy Face Mons...

Whining, Calories and Puffy Face Monsters

So, anyone know how to lose weight in your face?  I know. I’m 37 now and can’t expect to look like I’m still in my twenties.  Yeah, I’m whining today.  But don’t worry, it’s all in fun.  <g> I’m nearly six feet tall and everyone tells me I’m at a good weight–that I was a skeleton before.  […]

Writing, Pro-Boxing Style

Writing, Pro-Boxing Style

I had actually planned to devote a couple of days a week to poetry for April’s National Poetry Month and time got away from me. If you’re in the mood for some great poetry, visit  Mad Below My Feet .  She has done such a great job representing the genre this month.  Her own work is stark, […]

Unprofessional Snarky Movie Review

Unprofessional Snarky Movie Review

Like Dolce Bellezza, I’ve had a little trouble finishing books lately.  I’m actually reading three very good ones, but I have the attention span of a gnat these days.  Maybe it’s spring fever. Even movies have been unable to capture my undivided attention.  A few here and there, but last night, one had me from […]

Living In Your Head

Living In Your Head

I HAD A FUNNY PIC HERE OF ME AS A TEEN PRETENDING TO STRANGLE MY LITTLE BROTHER. I’VE DELETED THE IMAGE  BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE ARRIVING HERE OFF THE MOST HORRIBLE SEARCHES. There was a long time in my life where my family moved often.  Yeah, I can be social, but it’s only after I get […]

Could She Be A…?

Could She Be A…?

Ever notice how interesting non-writers find writers?  Whenever I’m forced to write in public (still a mom first and I can’t tell you how many karate or dance classes I’ve sat through) I’ll notice surreptitious glances thrown my way.  I wear my bangs long and sometimes, I can watch them through strands of hair and […]

Painkiller Jane

Painkiller Jane

Okay, I’ll admit to being out of it as far as the current line up of shows on the Sci-Fi Channel, but last night, I caught part of the pilot episode of a new show I may get excited about.  Who knows anything about Painkiller Jane?  Have you read the comic books the character is based upon?  […]

She Had The Big Hair!

She Had The Big Hair!

I don’t know about you, but we’ve watched nothing but news the last 24 hours.  My heart is in Virginia right now.  I wasn’t sure I really planned to share these pics–loaded them after a comment about John Hughes movies.   I even pulled some movies out and had a blast remembering those days.  But the fashion!  We […]
