This is Halloween, Part 2

In Non-Fiction, Random, Writing on October 29, 2013 at 1:45 pm

I started off in Part 1 with stories from my grandmother, before I was even thought of.  There is a mini-story of my own experience when I was a child in which I awoke in the middle of the night, tossing in turning in the large bed next to my mother.  In my tossing and turning, I roll over to face my mother and see a figure.  Of course, even as a child I assume it’s my eyes playing tricks on me.  But my eyes focus and the figure doesn’t go away.  It was lighter than the rest of the room, almost glowing, and was standing next to the bed leaning over my mother.  It was a boy, looking very close to my own age of around 6 or 7.  I stared silently and the figure looked from my mother to me.  At this point, I panicked and pulled the blanket over my face.  I sat for a moment and when I lowered the blanket below my eyes again, everything was gone and the room was completely dark.  But that’s a short story with little detail, despite the fact that to this day I can recall specific details about the boy’s face and hair and expression.  The good stories come much later on.  Skip ahead.  Little Kay grows up, graduates high school, and moves away to college.  That’s when things start to get interesting again….

February Blog Challenge – 1: Self Portrait

In Challenges, February 2013 on February 1, 2013 at 11:51 pm

So I have been looking at other people’s blog challenges of daily posts a lot lately.  I am really interested in doing that myself for a full month, but it’s almost impossible for me to post aside from on weekends because my work days can be so demanding and long throughout the week.  If the prompts are simple and if I lump together multiple days, since it’s inevitable that I will miss some and have to play catch up, I think I could manage it.  Then I saw a February challenge, courtesy of Jessica, and decided to try it because these seem like they would be easy for me to bust out pretty quickly.

So the first one is a self portrait, and -lucky me- I just got a new one.  I have an obsession with taking picture on my iphone and then using free editing apps to make the pictures look vintage, old, or just weird.  By obession, I mean I can not post a picture taken with my iphone on any social media without running it through some filters first 🙂

Anyways, here is my most recent self portrait, taken a week ago today.

She hates the thought of being friends with certain people that annoy her, almost as much as she hates Pitbull and his style of music making (Big city, big city, random spanish word = somehow radio worthy).

It’s a double feature tonight, guys!

These two go hand in hand, so I figured I’d just post them poth together.

My friend and I found a candle of a…unique…design in a very odd shop on Beale Street while attending Memphis in May in Memphis, TN.  Believe – this thing was purchased and sits atop a wall shelf in my friend’s home.  But it also generated a story: a tale about an owner of a small business…


Soundbite:  “The slogan is ‘drip, dry, and apply.’  The name: Cuntsty Candles.”

Nugget #34: Girl, You Hippo Sexy

In Cleverness, Funny, Pictures/Images on December 31, 2012 at 10:07 pm

Apparently, in the Madagascar movie, the male hippo is trying to pick up the female hippo and uses some pretty funny lines about her large size.  So we decided to use them inappropriately when we got separated after a long night out full of drinks:

Guess who’s about to be sending this video to a ho on Facebook 🙂

Hey, Katy Perry.  Just putting your Peacock lyrics to good use here.  No big deal.  +5 points for a quick and witty text picture reply – go me!
