Encore

Well, I haven't wrote one of these in forever! There has been lots of changes this year but I've had a few goals that I wanted to accomplish coming into this year. I wanted to finish the first book in my trilogy and I did. I know the ending now and I think it's going to be good. I think people will identify with the characters and the underlying stories within the story. The first book will be called Roots to Branches. I'll have to give credit of inspiration to an old Jethro Tull album for t

Random Thoughts

Well, I am standing here at work down at the Commercial Sales Desk...my favorite place in the whole store and it is dead...completey DEAD in this place. Google + works great here with this connection but I can't go to Blogspot or Facebook. I'm sure that knowledge is going to come in handy one day. DM is the one thing that DOES work (unlike me who is basically goofing off until closing time. Mu hahahaha!   But you know what? I have my own coffee machine and water cooler all to myself and

Lightning Strikes Again

It has been so long since I've wrote one of these and had been telling myself I would get back to blogging for ages so with 2012 still fresh and new...now seems as good a time as any.   My old laptop passed away yesterday and I have a brand new one. I just have to wait for a new version of AOL to arrive in the mailbox so I can install it. So, for now, I will have to use the iPhone, the super slow downstairs computer, and the one at the Commercial Sales Desk at work assuming we are dead

Building Something Together

Greetings one and all! I've got to say that I love this time of year. Football, cookouts, and festivals! Starting on October 19th, the Reds will be having their annual Autumn festival. It's going to be lots of fun so I hope people stop by and help us celebrate this season   It has been a hectic week in the trenches. I get to stay at a HUGE desk with 4 computers, none of which have the internet, and try to entertain myself for long shifts at night. I swear there is no life on the Commercial end

These Are the Days That Drive You Crazy

OKay! I'm so glad to finally get back here and chill out for awhile. It has been 7 days of Hell but I'm glad that I was able to make it back without committing any serious crimes against humanity. I do have have a few gripes and/or pet peeves to discuss or VENT on.   First, I really wish people would just READ THE FREAKING SIGNS. There are signs everywhere...as a society, we are obsessed with them. A sign here or sigh there and they're all conveniently in our language (plus a few others) so p

When the Music's Over

I wrote this while I was looking for a job. I hope you enjoy it.   (Note: Amy and Lauren walked up to my car today, Complete with red eyes and looking dismayed I, with my Subway and chipolte sun chips Them, with their clipboards and pink slips They said Crystal says I've got to go Not enough magazine sales and a percentage too low I gave them a hug to help ease their distress And returned to my vehicle needing some rest.)   Through flashing lights and wounded streets through pulsa

DM 8.0 Never Leave Home Without it

This is awesome! Now, I never really have to leave Dragonmount for anything. I can blog and update my Facebook. I hope to get better at this as this is my first blog using this system. I used to have a blog named Bottom of the Bottle Reflections but, thankfully, I've grown up since the college years.   Basically, today I finally started the P90X workout system and ran some laps. I'm really hoping that the Baltimore Ravens beat the Jets tonight because of Rex Ryan running his mouth and being a
