I don’t have a good reason to post. I just wanted to show off my shiny new icon. It’s a t-shirt over at despair. com and I made it into an icon because it was just too good to pass up, but I didn’t want to buy a whole t-shirt. article explaining my icon
I’ve written the draft for Bass Face part 4. I didn’t think it was going to be as long as it ended up being. This means that the story is going to be six chapters long with an option for an epilogue.
Also wanted to add that I read the Tsunami part of Cooper’s Dispatches from the Edge. I am in awe. No really, I might just have to buy this book to own in my personal library. Even knowing the disasters the book talks about, even being a little off put by Cooper’s language, (hey, I was an English major, of course I’m critical), I was just not expecting the emotional reaction reading this managed to get from me. I had to put the book down every few pages and just breathe. Well done Mr. Cooper.

I’ve been preparing for a trip to St. Augustine, FL because I’ve never seen the sites there I just drive by it on my way somewhere else. So this year I’m making an effort to go there for several reasons:
1. I can afford it
2. It’s the oldest city in this country
3. I live in Florida so it’s not too far
4. I’m a grown-up and I can go where I want
5. Ghost Hunters found ghosts there
Number five was a big influence in my decision. I can get away with going to St. Augustine and not mentioning the Ghost Hunters because lots of people would like to see St. Augustine. It’s a really nice town. But let’s say I didn’t live so close to a place I associate with Ghost Hunters. Chances are I would have made that ghost hunting trip to meet them somewhere seeing as how I can’t control my obsessive personality.
For example, I was watching reruns of the Office when I flipped on the guide to see what was on TV. The listing said Keith Olbermann so I clicked it on, but the guide was wrong. One channel flip over and guess what? Anderson Cooper 360. Ha,Ha. I smiled and laughed at my own fangirlness.
Unfortunately, at this hour at night I watch TV with captions on so I don’t wake my daughter with the noise. This meant that I could either read what Anderson was saying or just stare at his face. I managed to juggle both. I’m so silly. I caught most of the show and then when it was over it was time for the Daily Show.
What a great way to end my day.
Ghost Hunters in St. Augustine Lighthouse
I was in Borders yesterday and as I’m trying and failing to urge my family to leave already I started reading a Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic book (Harmonic Divergence #21). Anyway, the point is as I was flipping through it I saw something that I just wanted to share with richie666 and so I bought the damn thing.
this is for you richie
