2010 here I come....

So it's almost 2010 and I can't wait. I love even numbers....plus 2009 was difficult. Some good things happened in 2009....I established myself in Texas and have been working for over a year...but I'm hoping that 2010 will bring me more happiness in my personal life than 2009 did. My goals this next year are to complete a manuscript, finish the several books that I have not finished reading, and try to get money saved.

So I've started reading Under the Dome, the latest by Stephen king.

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry.

But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.

So I am excited, I'm 20 pages in so far and it catches you from the very beginning....this is a tall tale that this book will be spectacular. Tune in for my review.....once I've finished the ginormous book.

Day with A and Z....

Had a good day with A and Z, my roommates children. We went shopping at walmart in the morning for dinner and other things, then we made our lunch and walked to the park, well they road their bikes. Z just got his training wheels off, so he wobbled a lot. We ate our lunch, I took several videos of them making a mess of themselves and sent them to their mother. It was fun. Then we went home and made a giant gingerbread house, and some sunchaser thingies... then cooked dinner. I did fried chicken, gizzards, giant backed potatoes and this broccoli and carrot dish mixed with mayo and butter. I grew up on it and it was my first time. Roomie didn't like it, but hey it was worth a shot....lol.... all in all it was a good day. Now for day two with the kids, and only three more days till XMAS!

My first YA book

So I completed the profile of main character in the first book of a YA series I plan to write. I've also completed the first chapter. I like it. I've sent it off to my 17 year old sister, who I am using as a sounding board and collaborator for this book. This new series is about the descendants of Elemental Aliens who had to flee from their home planet due to it's impending death, and had to resume their lives on Earth. Each book will be about the last descendant of the five elemental aliens that came to our planet, Air, Earth, Water, Fire and Metal. They will deal with their own personal troubles, a long with finding out who they truly are and how they are all connected to each other. I hope that this will be a successful series.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

So I saw The Half-Blood Prince back when they had the midnight showing during the summer, and I decided that I would re-read the Deathly Hallows, so that this time around I would remember what was in the book when I went and saw the movie. Seeing as they are doing two movies, which I hope they are able to stick to books a bit more easily than they have in the past, I know that I will go with knowing what should be in the movie and what shouldn't. I am just wondering if they will be able to keep it at a PG-13 rating, because Deathly Hallows is a very dark book, well not very, but darker than the rest, and if they are going to be true to the book, and make two movies, then I'm curious as to how they'll be able to do this.

 *Update 12.14.09*
Finally finished it, and so here's my review.... 
By J. K. Rowling
Arthur A. Levine Books (2007)
759 pages 
ISBN 0545010225
Burdened with the dark, dangerous, and seemingly impossible task of locating and destroying Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes, Harry, feeling alone and uncertain about his future, struggles to find the inner strength he needs to follow the path set out before him.

I really enjoyed this one, it was the darkest of them all, but had a lot of twists and turns that you didn't expect. It really tore at my heart when Ron left Hermione and Harry, and how it really hurt Hermione the most. I was so happy to see Ron show back up. I don't know if Harry should have kept the truth about what he was doing for so long, especially since Hermione and Ron are his best friends and have been through so much with him, but Harry still had to get through his own troubles, especially the pain from seeing into Voldemort's mind. It was so hard to read about all my favorite characters dieing in the end, but when you are writing such a dark book, there is going to be death. I was so happy to see Neville stand up and be just like his parents, willing to die for those he loved. I was so proud of him. When Harry finally learned about Snape and his mother and the fact that Snape was always with Dumbledore, that just made smile deeply. Harry was so torn about the death of Dumbledore, especially at the hands of Snape and it was great to see that wash away when he saw Snape's memories. In the end it was fantastic, to go 19 years later and to be able to see what came of Heroine, Ron, Harry and Ginny and all the others, it was wonderful. Now I want a new series to be written about Harry and all them and their children.

Stephen King's 'Cell' to Hit the Small Screen Instead

Stephen King's 'Cell' to Hit the Small Screen Instead

Stephen King's 'Cell' to Hit the Small Screen Instead

Filed under: Horror, Newsstand
(Remember wayyy back when Eli Roth was attached to direct a film based on Stephen King's Cell? Yeah, well, that obviously didn't happen, and now word has it those Weinstein boys have decided to take the property to the small screen instead. Here's Peter Hall reporting for Horror Squad)

Fangoria got out word today from the Fantasia Film Festival that Stephen King's Cell is no longer destined for the silver screen. Instead the novel will be reborn as a four hour TV mini-series to be scripted by John Harrison. Details are rather sparse at this stage, but Harrison tells Fango his take on the material will be closer to a classic creeper like Village of the Damned (I hope Harrison is referring to the original and not the languid John Carpenter remake) than an all out zombie movie.

If you recall Eli Roth was long attached to a film adaptation of King's novel about a cell phone pulse that scrambles the inner workings of any poor sap that hears it, converting them instantly into a murderous member of a new society.

Read the rest on Horror Squad

Personally I think this is great news. I still remember my reaction to the original Roth attachment and how he envisioned the whole thing as a global blood bath. King's novel certainly has its share of apocalyptic waves of bloodshed, but its core is an intimate story of a band of survivors in a world turned upside-down, which is something I never pegged Roth as a being that interested in. I'm glad to hear that Cell has expanded its exhibition (no way that book should have been crammed into an opening weekend pleasing 100 minutes, anyway) while contracting its scope closer to that of King's original vision.

Stephen King's Cell



Graphic artist Clay Riddell was in the heart of Boston on that brilliant autumn afternoon when hell was unleashed before his eyes. Without warning, carnage and chaos reigned. Ordinary people fell victim to the basest, most animalistic destruction.
And the apocalypse began with the ring of a cell phone...
I read this book several years ago, and to this day I still enjoy it. It is a nice twist to zombies and tears at your heart strings as you follow Clay Riddell and a few other survivors as he tries to find his son. Mr. King really turns his "zombies" into more of a thinking class, that has tapped into it's animal side and leaves all of it's humanity behind. The zombies band together and in the end you wonder if there is any way that the world will ever be the same again.

Cover for Taken by Midnight, next book from Lara Adrian, after Shades of Midnight



So I've been updating my blog. I'm wanting it to be more than just what's going on in my life. I want to use it to talk about the books I love and movies and everything. So I'm going to start posting my own reviews of books, and movies and what not. I hope you enjoy them.

New works....

So I've been working on my Cold Case story, but I've hit a point where I'm stuck on what to do next, so one of my favorite authors, Lara Adrian, suggested that I take a break and walk away from it for a little bit. So now I'm working on another idea I had for a YA (Young Adult) series. With the help my 17 year old sister I hope to be able to create something that her and her friends and the rest of the YA world will enjoy. It's not yet titled, but it has to do with Elemental beings and their decendants. I am very excited.

Christmas Candy!!!

It's just as bad as Halloween Candy, except it's for Christmas. I had the pleasure of spending the first 5 hours of my shift trying to put out three pallets of Christmas candy, what is Christmas candy you may ask, well it's all that crap you buy for people on Christmas.....Ferror Roche (or however you spell it), candy canes, M&Ms in Christmas colors....blah blah blah.....and for some reason the people at my job think that we should be able to put it all out in the middle of November! Hello people.....customers are not buying that shit yet, they still have to get through Thanksgiving! Do you see any Thanksgiving candy? No! Because wally world doesn't give to shits from Santa about Thanksgiving, cause there is no money in it.....arg.....I love Christmas, I just hate the ridiculous expectations regarding retail and the holidays.

Sunday, November 8, 2009


Yes it's November and at work all that I see is Christmas. I love Christmas, but where is Thanksgiving? I'll tell you where it is, on an end cap as you walk down the clearance halloween isle....but it's not called Thanksgiving, it's called fall or harvest....it's like we go from Halloween, a brief stint in Thanksgiving/Harvest town and straight on to Christmas. Thanksgiving is just as important as Halloween...I mean there is Black Friday...c'mon it's the biggest shopping day of the year.. as Paul Blart: Mall Cop will tell you. I love Thanksgiving, the turkey, the stuffing, the mash potatoes...some of you like that sweet potatoes, the bean cassarol and the beats....not me....it's all about the turkey, mash and stuffing smothered in gravey and topped off with a bun or two. That's what I look forward to. I do wish I could spend it with all my family, but seeing as I decided to move away, I will enjoy it with my friend and roommate, and it will be almost like I'm back home. Maybe next year I can come for the holidays..we shall see. I'd take my vacation in December but it's too late...plus I doubt wally world would fathom the idea of letting me off for a week during xmas. Hopefully I won't be at wally world next year around this time, but we shall see.

Love you all!!!

Paranormal Activity

What a waste of $7.50....I had expected more, but was disappointed. The hype made me think that I was in for a treat, but I'm left unsatisfied and looking for something else remotely scary to watch to fill my need to be frightened. Unfotunately, most if not all of the scary movies I own, don't scare me anymore. For those who scare easy, it's a great movie, but for the jaded, such as myself, it was a bit of a let down. Though the morphing of the face at the end was a neat trick.

Zachary turns 6 this week. I bought him this Transformer toy, he loves Bumblebee so I got him one, I hope he likes it. I wish I could be there for the party, but I have to work 11-8, and no one wants to switch, so unfortunately I'll miss most of the party. I hope he has a great party. It's halloween themed, I know he'll have fun.

Awww Sunday

Had another wonderful morning with my cousin Erika at church. After the 10am service we spent the last service with the infants and it was cool, my left arm does hurt a bit, but it was nice. Then helped finish with the grocery shopping, and stuff. It was a good sunday.

In a funk...

My roommate got into a funk that she couldn't get out of due to her Ex being a douche again. So our evening wasn't as fun as it would have been. I wish he could just leave her alone, just makes all our lives shitty. Just so stupid.... so stupid.... he's so stupid, stupidest person I've ever known.

Baby Names....

Listening to Rob, Arnie and Dawn...gotta love the internet cause they are located in California. They are talking about the top 10 baby names and how these days people have strayed from the classic names like John and Mary and are creating crazy names. Though I have no kids yet, I've already picked names.

My favorite names if I have children are:

Carlana Liora Louise & Jayden Baxter Dean

Life and Holidays...

So we have been setting up Christmas stuff at work. Yes it's middle of October and we have Christmas stuff. Is it too early...it could be, I like it, cause it gives me stuff to do during my shift. I'll spend another set of holidays away from the majority of my family. Thankfully this year I have my cousin Erika to spend it with, that will help. It's still weird not spending the holidays with my family. I miss just being there. I think my roommate was a little disappointed to find out that I was spending Thanksgiving and Christmas with my cousin, but she's my family, and I need that.

Me and my Cousin Jenny

Church with Erika and afternoon chatting with Jenny

Went to church with my cousin Erika today, it was great. We went to Crossroads in Grand Praire, it's a huge church, so awesome, can't wait to go next week. We had Starbucks for breakfast, and then Subway for lunch. Then I went to DFW and picked up my other cousin Jennifer and we spent about an hour trying to find her hotel...ok so I'm still figuring out this area, and well the exits were right next to each other and I missed the one I wanted, but hell we got there...lol... After she checked in we went to the Cheesecake Factory and had some snacks and margaritas, and chatted, then went back to her room and chatted more, then went to Starbucks and got more coffee and then went back to her room and channel surfed on the tv and chatted more. It was awesome.

Losing faith in the government..

Source: news.yahoo.com
After going AWOL for seven days, Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday that he had secretly flown to Argentina to visit a woman with whom he was having an affair. Wiping away tears, he apologized to his wife and four sons and said he will resign as head of the Republican Governors Association.
A little rant of mine.....how are we supposed to live our lives morally when so many of our politicians are being caught or outed doing immoral things. How are we supposed to have faith in our government when they lie to their own families.

Water Park

Went to the water park yesterday, had a great time but got sun burnt.

Wednesday, June 10, 2009


So we had a tornado warning today, the weather got really freaky. Wind was blowing pretty hard, the rain was moving so thick. The power went out for like 45 mins, and we had candles all over the place, and pillows and blankets in the tub just in case. At one point my roommate had her sister take the kids into the tub and read them a story, because it was getting pretty hairy. Luckily we didn't get the tornado, and we only had one siren warning us of one, but not the second siren telling us to watch for it...... this is just the beginning.

Got my comp back all to myself...

My roommate finally got herself her own computer, so though I didn't mind sharing mine with her, it's nice to have it all to myself again. Plus now her and I can RP together again. YAY.....all is right in the world....haha

Saturday, May 16, 2009


So I took the plunge and chopped off at least six inches of my hair....I know...sad...but it had to be done....

Losing weight

Went to the doctor Wednesday and guess what I weigh 303lbs!!! Why am I excited? Well because when I moved to Texas six months ago I weighed between 340 and 350, so I am very excited about my weight.

Men, Love, Life...

So I think I am coming to a crossroads in my life. I am at a point where I am content with where my life is. I am content with my home life, my work life, and things here. I think that is why I am having a hard time finding a guy that works. When I really think about it, the thought of adding a guy into my life right now makes me feel like he would just disrupt everything, and my contentedness will go away. Yes I want a man in my life, yes I would like to get married and have children, but right now, this very moment, I am happy with the way things are, and I just can't see myself having to try to divide my time up between my best friend and roommate, and a man. I guess that means that I've not found "The One" yet, because I am sure that when I do find "The One", then disruption in my life will be wanted.

News News News...

Yea so lots of shit to talk about, hmm....we are still having to move, but we have until the end of May now. I'm moving up on the Walmart ladder. I am going to be a full-time cashier in the garden center. Friday is my last day as a People Greeter....thank gawd!!!! I trained for about an hour tonight on the register, PIECE OF CAKE!! Anyway, that's cool, I'll be getting wage raise of like 40 cents. So that's nice. Not much going on in the love life.....probably for the best...haha...not that I'm not seeing what's out there, just so far nothing good. There's so many things I need to take care of though, like my registration, my driver's license....bleh...things I have to put off till after we move. I was going to start working on my student loan this month, but that has to be put off, I can't afford forking out 200 bucks for my loan right now. I need to call them and see how much longer I have before I default...cause I don't want to default. Can I just hit the lotto and be done with it...haha...

Wednesday, April 1, 2009


Well today kicks off the 30 days that my roommate and I have to move into a new home. We'll be ok, it's what we wanted, just was one of those sudden things.

Time heals wounds..

I came across my ex's (Mario) sisters myspace page and saw that her status had to do with her dog dieing, so I sent her a message telling her that my prayers are with her. Well she replied warmly, telling me what happened and that it's been too long and that time heals wounds and hopes that we can stay in touch despite the bad good-bye. I'm so happy, because I loved her and her family very much and still do. I plan to keep in touch with her, even if it's occasionally.

The Lotto...

So I bought two $1 scratchers tonight. Didn't expect much from them, I was right, didn't win anything. But it's funny how the idea of winning gets your mind to wander and think about the things you would do if you won a lot of money. I know that my list of things to do has been altered. I would still help out my parents and my siblings, but now I would buy the house that I am living in and take some time off and just spruce it up. I have many thoughts running through my head for what I would do if I won the lotto....just would be nice to win.

Saturday, February 7, 2009

Good times..

Yea so we get home, me and Strohs, she decided to come and see me at work just before I got off. So around midnight she gets a call saying that so and so....won't name names... is buying drinks and we shoudl come down...so wadda we do, we go..... OF COURSE.... I mean who would give up FREE drinks!! Yea so I'm drunk.... Hey my typing is pretty good considering..... haha...

Wednesday, February 4, 2009


It has come to my attention that I truly need to just focus on my life and where it's going. Finding love is just too emotionally and mentally draining, and I don't need that right now. I've realized that all I can count on are my girls, and my roommate is one of them. We decided that the only people we need right now are each other, and we are going to look out for each other, and we are going to grow with each other, and we are going to be happy. And once our lives are in the right spot, then we will find love, until then, we are going to have a great time finding ourselves in this big scary world.

Tuesday, February 3, 2009


So I get a txt from him yesterday while I'm at work asking if I needed more time to think, or if we are over. I tell him I can't do this right now. Later I send him an email via my cell phone, he told me not to call him cause he was over his minutes, basically explaining that we are just not the right fit. He emails me twice asking why and going on and on at how much he still loves me and misses me and cares for me and blah blah yadda yadda, but he's asking why and what is it, so though I didn't want to hash out the issues, because I know that they are things that he can't change, because they are him, I reply telling him. Now I really wanted to do this when I was at home, cause I could have done a better email, but I was at work, and I didn't want to wait. So he sends me a reply lashing out and going on and on, and being very mean, then finally he ends the email with "So enjoy your life, you fat ass fuck. May you never find love again." Now tell me, who is the mature one. *throws hands up in the air and walks off*

Monday, February 2, 2009


So I've not talked to him since yesterday afternoon. No emails, no txts, no IM's, nothing, kinda reminds me of what happened with my last boyfriend, which makes my blood boil. He's had ample time to find out why I've not talked to him, but I guess at 40 he's still a child. Oh well, it saves me any effort, plus I'm not going to make myself visible on yahoo, I'm going to force him to either call me, txt me or email me. And if he does none of these things then I will deem our relationship over. I'm not going to do this, he's friggen older than me and is acting immature, I guess age doesn't determine maturity after all.

Sunday, February 1, 2009


Men suck, I can't stay with the one that I am with. There is just too many things that bother me, and I just don't see a future with him. He's a great guy, but his views on some things just don't mesh with me. I am an assertive, aggressive, direct, opinionated woman, and he doesn't like women like that. I don't really understand why he has been dating me for the last two months, knowing this is how I am. I just can't take his jealousy of my relationship with Strohs. I can't do it, I'm not going to fight between her and him. He knew from the beginning that she comes first, she has been here longer than him. I think he's not ready for a new person, he needs time to get his shit together before he tries to get invovled with someone new.

Friggen Ice!!

So I slipped on some ice....I know I know.... ok stop laughing.... *shakes head*..... so I fell and landed on my right knee..yea OUCH! So now my knee is swollen and it hurts like a mother when I walk. I still went to work, and I still worked, and it didn't help any, but hell I'm a trooper and I need the money. Yea Yea, I know I should have stayed home, but I can't afford it.

Frozen Truck....

So last night when I left work I found my truck frozen..... there was atleast a half inch of ice on it and I had to spray de-ice on it and use a scraper just to get my door open. Then 20 minutes later, with the defrost going, and massive amounts of de-icer and scraping I was able to go home.

Goin' out!!

So roomie and I are going to go out on Saturday and she's going to show me around Dallas, then we are going to go and experience the Dallas night life, I'm so excited..... whoop whoop....

Sunday, January 11, 2009


So we are told to not look for a new place to live.... go figure... the man is a fucking yo-yo... My roomie's ex is looking into getting the mortgage payments lowered, so if they are lowered to the amount that we want, then we won't be moving. So we'll see in a couple of weeks.... would be nice if the man would make up his fucking mind and decide what he wants to do.

Saturday, January 10, 2009

Life developments...

So I was asked if I wanted to go full-time, I said yes of course. The same day that this happened my roommate informed me that we were going to have to find a new place to live by the end of the month. So getting full-time came at the right time. You know I'm not that worried either, I know that we will be fine. I'm just glad to get more hours.

Awww the New Year

Ok so my New Year's Eve was fantastic. I spent it with Blaine and had an awesome time. He is so sweet and I couldn't have had it any other way. I'm so glad that I found him, or he found me, or what ever....haha....anyway, it was great ringing in the new year with him. I hope that this year is better than the last.
