True Love & National Novel Writing Month

We have all read a book or watched a movie that had two characters that were destined for each other. Soul mates. How many times have we witnessed it in real life?…

NANO is Only One Month Away!

2010 has just been disappearing! Poof! Nine months gone, just like that. However, this is my favorite time of year and I'm welcoming it with open arms. One of the many lovely things about this time of year, other than the leaves changing colors, scary movies and pumpkin spice coffee, is National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is for insane writers who crave less sleep, piles of dirty… Continue

Apple Picking & Carnivals

Yesterday was a long day, long and lovely. Started off with the breakfast of champions (pancakes, courtesy of my mom) with my 8 yo niece.

The two of us then set out for a music filled two-hour drive to Ochs Orchard

in Warwick, NY. I’ve

only been apple picking once before, a very long time ago, and don’t…

True Blood & HBO

Let me start off by saying that I am a huge fan of True Blood! I think Alan Ball is brilliant and all of the actors are so very, very talented. I also love coffee. I was very excited to find that the True Blood V coffee mug was finally available and ordered mine immediately.… Continue

Warning: Gripe Session Ahead

Everything I've been doing has finally caught up with me. Friday morning I woke up feeling awful and beyond exhausted. I'm feeling better now. I guess I just needed a couple of days of sleep.

Of course, because I missed school on Friday night, I will now have to do two make up classes. One for when I'll be at the writer's conference and one for the class I just missed. I really feel like I can't get a break. I feel overwhelmed by what I have to do and what is required of me by my… Continue

Un - Freakin' - believable!

I take an English class on Monday nights till 10. The professor often has us work together in groups. So far I've worked with two different girls and two different guys. This one guy asked me if we could exchange e-mail addresses incase one of us misses a class we could keep each other informed and up to date with what's going on in the class. I thought, sure, why not. This way if I ever do miss a class I hadn't planned on missing I could find out what I missed. WELL! I received this e-mail… Continue

Simple Human Decency

This is my first blog post on CrimeSpace... I'm sorry if it's somewhat negative. I'm usually a very positive person. But, sometimes, people just suck.

We had a snow storm in NY/NJ on Friday (Feb. 22). Inches of snow and hiding patches of ice (I presume). I drove all the way to work - over an hour on a normal day, I was there 20 minutes when my company decided to close. I go home, park my brand new 2008 black Honda Civic coupe in front of my house and left it there all weekend. The… Continue
