Found My Old Autobiography

Several years ago, I wrote out a brief outline of my life. It’s around twenty pages and growing. I did it mainly as a form of catharsis due to all the negative stuff I’ve had happen in my life. It worked too, so I’d highly recommend this as a supplement to therapy. In its current form, it goes from ages 0 – 27 years or, roughly, the years 1981 – 2008. I have plans to expand upon it up to the present day (I’m now 34) over the next few days as a means of getting my creative juices flowing for NaNoWriMo.

 

In other less boring news, I’ve harvested all the rest of the Jalapeno peppers.

I was watching YouTube’s Praxxus55712 and he explained how taking the first flush of peppers off would yield another two or three harvests down the road. So, up the stairs I went and cut the little fiends off of the plant. Already, there are new flowers coming in and signs of more growth. I’m really hoping that the tomatoes catch up with the pepper plant soon. From the looks of things, I might have to raise the hood light again.

 

Now, I just have to figure out what to do with all the jalapeno peppers I have. If you, my dear readers, have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments? I was thinking Nachos or homemade salsa or something. So far, I’ve been putting them in my eggs but that gets old quickly. Plus, everyone around me is a lightweight. So, giving them away isn’t an option.

 

Onto Project Central. Nothing is happening there. I’ve been so busy chasing down the Maternal Parental for some quality time that I haven’t been doing much with my projects. We’ve been trying to look at the last Hobbit movie but she gets sleepy, then I do, then she wants cigarettes. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. I should just focus on my own stuff for now given I’ve signed up for something so big as NaNoWriMo but I like spending quality time with her.

 

The Caregiver’s Cardigan is only a few more rows completed. Somehow, I don’t think I’ll make the deadline for NaKniSweMo for this thing. Still, as long as I get it done before the Holidays, I’ll be happy.

 

The Mystery Stuffed Toy hasn’t been touched since I mentioned it in the vlog days ago. If I focus on any project, it’ll probably be that one. I can bust it out in a day or so of crocheting compared with days and days of knitting for the Caregiver’s Cardigan.

 

Doily and various other projects…*hangs head in shame*

 

I’ll get to them all eventually. I should probably focus on them once NaNoWriMo is over with so I can have winter accoutrement. I’ve still not finished my winter gear.

 

The next vlog should come this weekend, if I can squeeze in the time and manage the quiet. I’m up in the air about what to read though. It’ll either be something I’ve written (fanfiction or original story) or another Fastback Horror series book.

 

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take a moment of “me time” and read the rest of Julius Caesar’s Commentaries on the Gallic War before binging on Paul Bettany and Karl Urban movies.

 

Later!

The Breadth and Depth of Depp

Hi all! I’m currently taking the time out of my day to show the Maternal Parental the versatility of Johnny Depp’s acting talents. As we all know, they are quite prodigious.

 

So far today, we have watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and Benny & Joon. The Maternal Parental was pleasantly surprised by the latter, having panned it as a movie she would not like based solely on how the cover art looked on the DVD. The former movie was actually requested by her to look at today. She’s done a full 180 from being completely frightened of it to really enjoying the story, including Captain Jack Sparrow.

 

She’s presently taking a break between movies. Right now, it’s a toss up between Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Corpse Bride for the next film to watch. I have others but, somehow, I know she’ll gravitate towards the ones with Johnny Depp.

 

Today also happens to be my friend’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Sistercrow! Your gift will be in the mail within seven days. Rolling on the floor laughing

 

I’m not doing much else tonight. Just up to the usual of knitting and crocheting. I’m also still in the midst of replying to all those people who’ve sent me messages. I’m a little over halfway through them all even as new replies come in.

 

Having a fancy for The Kurgan, I decided to get The Highlander as well as a few other films. As soon as I can get more money for my labor, I’m going to be buying series one and two of the now defunct Carnivàle. As you can probably tell from my choices of film and television, I’m a Clancy Brown fan and I have been for a very long time. Fantastic actor. I’m even going to see if I can chase down that episode of The Outer Limits he was in called Afterlife.

 

Well, that’s my Saturday night. Good night, all! Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow
