I have a Secret...

I LOVE Mrs.Butterworth. You know. The syrup. I once was married to a man from Maine...*sounds like a song huh?* and he NEVER wanted to eat it on pancakes or waffles. We always had to have maple syrup. Maple syrup is TOTALLY fine...but give me the cheap stuff and I'm a damn happy girl!

Why am I telling you this? Because I plan on making breakfast for dinner tonight. Pancakes and bacon. Yum! I may make extra pancakes and make them tiny and make a sandwich in the morning with bacon and eggs. That sounds pretty damn good.

But in other news life has been CRUISING in the fast lane by. I have been crazy busy and crazy hectic. I had my 29th birthday. Sadly my friends and I are to busy for me to do anything about it. But yesterday I did go see two movies and in between went and got a large margarita. THAT was kick ass. And hey, I may be going to New Orleans in a few months so I figure I can live it up then...even though I'll be with my mom. She's cool though.

But otherwise life has been crazy. But I'm also loving it. I wish there would be some snow though. I'm kinda getting afraid of the summer. Its going to be horrible. Ack.

So thats it for now. I'm off to make breakfast for dinner soon! Love you all!

The Twelve Dancing Princesses...My Version

So its not secret that I love books and stories and I have a passion for writing. I like to think that I may be slightly good at it, but who knows. But, I am attempting to write a book, I have been now for at least a year. Its an updated version of The 12 Dancing Princesses. That, along side the Seven Swans and their sister are my two favorite stories in the whole world. But I don't want to re-write the Swan story because one of my favorite writers has already written an AWESOME series about it and I think its perfect.

Why am I writing about this? I need a little bit of help. I'm not going to tell you the whole plot, but I'll gave you some details so you can help me figure out which path I want to choose. Its ultimately a story about a girl who realizes she has the strength to fight for her freedom. The main character is supposed to be from our "world" our reality. And she and 11 other girls are transported to another world. Now, I've been thinking that "our world/reality" should maybe be in the future...or should it be in our time period?

I just don't know. You should go look at my 12 Dancing Princesses PinBoard here:

12 Dancing Princesses Inspiration Pictures

So yeah, those pictures help inspire me as I try to figure all this shit out. If you have any ideas on if it should be in the future or present of our world let me know...

To the Stars Bowen, to the Stars...

I'm reading this book, well its two books actually. And there will be a third. They're very good. I hope I've figured out some of the twists and turns. I like to think that I'm good at figuring out where a person is going with the story that they are telling. I like to think of it as a gift. But these books, the first one called Across the Universe is set in space.

There are the frozen elite from our Earth who...are frozen. And the people who have been engineered in a sense to keep the ship running, to keep the elite people on their way towards a new and better Earth. That sounds great. In a sense. I like the Earth I'm on and I know for a fact I would have no value to be "frozen" and sent to another Earth to make a new life. I'm to selfish, crazy...whatnot. I can only cook...and Dream. Buts that not the point.

The point is...and if you've never read the books and want to read them I'm giving you a spoiler. So, sorry about that. One of the frozens from Earth is un-frozen early and is stuck on the ship. I always think that if I could I would take the chance of going into space. Of flying amongst the stars that I look at and dream about every night.

But...I don't think I actually could. It freaks me out. Space. Well, I guess space doesn't scare me, the stars dont scare me. Rather the idea of being caught in a tiny ship *no matter how big* scares the crap out of me. To be lost and alone forever in a place where no one could find you, where no one could hear you screams for help.

Its weird that I look up at the stars and wish upon them for something better, for something more. I think what I wish for is my freedom.

Oil Spill, Flood and Cocktail Fiasco of 2012

A week ago I was tasked with the challenge to make some food that could be frozen and eaten at later dates for a women who broke her coller bone. I of course was up to the challenge, but two days before I had made fish and chips and the oil from the fried fish was still sitting on my stove top, ready and waiting to be thrown away.

So, before I could start on the food for the lady I decided to clean up a little. Try as I might, I could not get the oil to go into its plastic bin as it should have. So it went all over the floor. And when I mean ALL OVER. I mean ALL OVER. I had to clean that up. Pissed off and red faced I screamed out profanities and continued along with my task at hand. It all worked out, I made the food, she's happy. Etc.

Then today I filled the dishwasher as any normal person might. I went and sat down to my computer and started looking at facebook and Pintrest. To my surprise I started hearing weird trickling noises. I decided to get up and check it out. What did I find? A FLOOD. OMG! I ran all around gathering towls to stem the flow of water. And stem it I did. *ps, to make matters worse, two weeks ago my faucet broke off. Yes you read that right* And I have NO time to get either of them fixed.

So what would any normal person do? Make a cocktail. And I did. It was fantastic. I decided to make another. My cat decided he wanted food, so I tried to rest my drink on the toaster...and what happens? It fell EVERYWHERE! Wasting vodka and making the floor super sticky.

So that has been my life so far. Crazy. Sorry to complain. I just hope it gets better from here.
