I wanted to take a look at another type of gal who we find in some horror stories and movies. By innocents I don’t necessarily mean victims. These are the women who are a little more reactionary. Maybe they’re prey to whatever is going on, maybe the events help them to find a stronger part … More Women in Horror: Innocents
Yeah yeah, valentine’s day, love and stuff, etc etc etc. But what about those ladies that make our hearts suffer palpitations? What about those books and films that feature women that might actually rip your heart out or have to fight to keep their own organs in their chests? So now that we’ve talked about … More Women in Horror: Badasses
Well, hopefully we’re all still here! I know, I know, everyone’s heard quite enough about the end of the world by now. The thing is, though…it’s a hell of a plot device. I have to admit that when I was in my early teens, I went through a stage where I overdosed on all things … More It’s the end of the world as we read it…
So in some regards, my stubbornness and ability to stick to my guns was…maybe not born from being a NKOTB fan, but that definitely helped. For better or worse, those hazings because of my fan status probably make it a little hard for me to get vocally into any fandom these days…I’m always a little … More Music Monday: NKOTB’s Life Lessons Pt.2
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Music Monday, but something happened the other day that made me realize I still have something to talk about. And if you’re cringing or surprised at the title…look, I have a wide range of tastes. It may be a little odd to see that the classical music … More Music Monday: NKOTB’s life lessons pt 1
I love autumn. It’s my favorite season. Everything is changing, people start coming together, it’s easy to appreciate the beauty of nature. This is the season where I want to be outside all the time (if it isn’t too rainy), the season I love pulling out my sweaters and hoodies. It’s also the season for … More Autumn Harvest Blog Hop
You may not realize it if you follow this blog, but I stinkin’ love Halloween. (heh. heh. heh.) There’s something freeing about this time of year, whether it’s walking through the leaves or wondering what’s grabbing your leg while you’re trying to rake them. (What? You don’t do that to people?) I actually grew up … More Howloween Blog Hop!
Oh, school. How I do not miss you. Don’t get me wrong, there were things I liked about it, but it took me a long time to realize that I liked school because I thought I was supposed to. It didn’t mean I actually did. I was just too much of a goody goody at … More NBP Back to School Blog Hop!
I have no idea when I wrote this, but my guess is probably around third or fourth grade. I’ll have to get my scanner working because some of these have illustrations that are just priceless. Anyway, proof that even at an early age I was trying to expand my horizons…into poetry! (watches as everyone flees … More The Lost Manuscripts – Poetry Edition! A Strange Day
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so let’s open up the vaults! Today’s piece of my tragic writing past is from November 20, 1990, so I would’ve been ten or so. I will warn you, this was when I was neck deep in my self-insertion fantasy phase (though some could argue … More The Lost Manuscripts: The Magic Leaf
