Things happened so fast I didn’t even have time to warn any of you!  At the beginning of July I drove from Maryland to Arizona.. alone.. longest 3 days of my life!  Got to hang out with my sister and her kids.. partially helping her survive cuz she had surgery.  Then on the 20th we flew to Orlando, FL!  Great week at Saratoga Springs Resort, got the kids to go on Splash Mountain, and did lots of swimming.  The only thing that really sucked was that it rained so much we missed going to the beach.  We did go to Ghirardelli’s Soda Fountain tho! Best sundae ever!!!!

Now I’m back home with a still swollen and painful ankle, that I twisted in the airplane on the way to Florida.  Nice to get some rest now though.. as much as I love those kids they can wear ya out.  Couple weeks til school starts so it’s time to get ready for that.  Gotta buy some books n such.


Disney World definitely needs more Jack Skellington.  He was confined to the corner/one wall of the Christmas shop.  Tragic.  However, I did get myself a new coffee cup and this awesome purse –



Plus we got to make some magnets, banners, ceramics, and coloring pages at the resort with the kids.

Time to catch up on my gaming.. I’m behind and feel out of sorts since I don’t know whats going on in Guild Wars 2.  Plus, no one is really playing Neverwinter anymore and I’m being subjected to DC Universe.  I think Neverwinter is better than DC… so if you find yourself in need of a free game.. choose the first!




So I know she isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I LOVE Emilie Autumn.  I think she is an amazing artist and has so much talent for so many things!  Plus, she’s bipolar like me so seeing how much she has accomplished helps me think I can too!  She recently released a video and one of my friends back in Arizona is actually in it!  Kinda cool to be watching it and then going “oh oh I know him!”  I don’t know what her inspiration was for this video, but it’s the best music video ever.  Just the right mix of fucking crazy, sex, and awesomeness.  Emilie Autumn is about as girly as I get and she’s fairly girly to an extent lol.

I’ve been working on getting my things brought down from my old room to the new, super unexciting but necessary. At least it’s at least 10 degrees cooler down here most of the time now that it’s getting hot, humid, and nasty.  Gonna have to work on my tan soon so that I’m not blinding people when we go to Florida in July.  Crossing my fingers that the internship I requested information about will allow telecommuting, hopefully I hear back on Monday!

Today I noticed that The Bates Motel was on A&E so I thought I’d finally see what all the fuss was about.  I don’t get it.  Maybe because I didn’t watch it from the beginning, but I am so lost about so many things.  And because of that I can’t decide if I like it or not.  It does draw my attention pretty well, but who knows.  I am very excited that Falling Skies season premiere is soon, that show rocks.  This week was the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy and of course they left a huge cliffhanger!  Not as bad as last season, but still one that had me yelling at the tv.  My plan next week is to watch Defiance and see if that’s any good.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention.. Tuesday was my birthday!  My kick ass friend Megan got me a new Jack Skellington wallet!  AND cupcake supplies!  New liners, gel, icing, and sprinkles.  So this week I have to figure out a new recipe to try.  I’m thinking maybe chocolate-orange.  That’s always a tasty combination.  Anyway, now that you’ve finished reading all my jibber jabber.. here it is!

Well, there are a few things in my life I’m semi-obsessed with.  One of these things is anything to do with mental illness and mental hospitals.  I’m talking movies, books, pictures of abandoned places, and anything else you can think of.  So of course one of my favorite movies is Girl, Interrupted.  And something that stuck with me was when they talk about the definition of ambivalence “simultaneous and contradictory attitudes or feelings (as attraction and repulsion) toward an object, person, or action” (  I feel this way about a lot of things in life so the word has stuck with me for years.

Another one of my semi-obsessions is Sons of Anarchy.  I absolutely love this show!! I can’t get enough of it.  It will be a tragedy when the show ends.  I’ve always been fascinated with that sort of life, even when I was a kid, so to see it in a t.v. show was awesome.

Cupcakes. Really need I say more?  The drag queens back in Arizona used to call me their cupcake bitch because I could always be counted on to make cupcakes for a charity show.  Something about making cupcakes just makes me happy.

Since we’re talking about my semi-obsessions I figure I should let you know about the rest.  I love skulls.  Be it metal ones that go on a wall, candle holders, jewelry, anything.  I also love Jack Skellington.  I have purses, coffee cups, shirts, and I always find something new I want on Amazon.  I also love movies.  All different kinds.  Everything from Hello, Dolly! to Resident Evil.  I am a big fan of horror movies (big surprise right?) but when I say that I mean real gore.  I’m not watching any Paranormal Activity crap.  I’m watching Dario Argento’s version of Phantom of the Opera where the phantom bites of a guys tongue and there’s fake blood ALL over.  Yes, I am a twisted freak – Thanks for noticing!

I also have a thing for Laurell K Hamilton.  She writes the best erotica – vampires, werewolves, wereleopards, faeries, etc.  I have almost all of her Anita Blake series and every time a new book comes out I read it in a day and just can’t wait for the next.  I also have a thing for Alice in Wonderland.  I don’t just mean the original cartoon.  I mean anything and everything Alice.  Alice: Madness Returns is amazing.  I wish I had played the original American McGee’s Alice, but alas I don’t have a copy.  Feel free to send me one! hehe.  The darkness applied to the fairy tale rocks.  I mean really the reason Alice even existed was because Lewis Carroll was a tad demented.
