Warmth

23 Feb

I am flying high as a kite right now! This was my first winter in North Carolina, and its been an extremely mild winter.  I think the universe was trying to break me in slowly. After all, I am a “Floridiot”-the term of the North Carolinians.

So, back to the reason I’m flying high. It was 70 degrees today!! 70 degrees at the end of February in the mountains! As soon as i got home from work, which is at 2 p.m., I threw on a tank, shorts and my beloved flip-flops. I plopped my chair in the middle of the yard and soaked up the warmth of the beautiful sunshine.  I even got a bit of a tan!

I don’t think I really realized how much I missed the sun and the warmth.  Now, let me explain a few things. I hate being hot. When I say hot I mean walking outside and instantly sweating, a lot like what happens when you walk outside when you live in Florida.  It is not pleasant at all. I just like being warm and comfortable. Don’t get me wrong I like the cold.  I love winter clothes and hats and scarfs, just not doom and gloom cold. Give me some sun and 32 degrees and I’m a happy camper. Although if you give me 70 degrees and a nice breeze, I’m happy as a pig in sh**!

Needless to say, im ecstatic and in a very good mood. Hopefully it will continue through my weekend!

Smallville Is Gone…Forever

20 May

I’ve noticed in my site stats that many of the search terms that direct people to my blog are asking if Smallville has been cancelled. The answer is yes. Smallville ended its series last week, Friday May 13th, 2011.  The show lasted for 10 years and it was the longest running Sci-Fi series in American history.

For those of you new to the world of Smallville or have no clue of what I am talking about, let me give you a little information.  Smallville is the story of Clark Kent before he becomes Superman.  The series takes us from the meteor shower where Martha and Johnathan Kent find Clark to the day Clark accepts his destiny and takes to the skies as Superman.

So, for the people who keep searching “smallville cancelled 2011” you will be disappointed to find the truth.  As to why, I personally believe it was just time.  Ten years is a long time to keep a show going and to keep fans happy. Considering this show was all about the life of Superman before he was Superman means that once Clark became Superman the show was complete.

Who knows, maybe one day we will see a spin-off series. At least the fans hope so!

A Long Sabbatical

28 Mar

Yes, I know.  I have failed in my Post A Day challenge.  I don’t want to make excuses, but I have few anyways!

Currently, I have no internet access at my home.  It’s a long story that involves a serious love/hate relationship between me and my internet service provider.  So, for now I am having to hoof it to the library if I want to use the internet.  And when I say “hoof it”, I mean that literally.  Paige and I share a vehicle and she is gone most of the day working which leaves me and my two legs for transportation.

It’s not like the library is far.  Actually, it is probably less than a quarter-mile from my house.  I’m just lazy.  Yup, that’s right, just plain ol’ lazy! Well, not all of it is laziness, some of it is fear.  I don’t live in the best part of town, if you know what I mean, and I am the worlds most paranoid person.  It takes me forever to fall asleep at night because every rustle of the leaves, creak, or any other noise sends me into a paranoid frenzy. It really is a serious problem.

Anyway, maybe I will start walking up to the library every day just so I can get my posts done. At least it would give me a bit of exercise too.  Killing two birds with one stone.  I suppose if I didn’t make it to the library every day I could use my Blackberry.  I do have the WordPress App installed, but for me, I think its useless.  Sorry if I offend anyone, but it’s really difficult to use.  I can’t get pictures exactly where I want them, I hate the “phone draft” thing, and you have to constantly refresh the app to have all your drafts current.  Maybe its just me, but I just don’t like it.  Not to mention, typing a whole post using the tiny little keyboard is annoying.

So there you have it. My not so good excuses for not posting everyday.  I will seriously make the effort to post everyday even though it’s a bit more difficult.  I really have missed blogging.

I Was A Guest Blogger!

16 Feb

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from scriptorobscura asking me to do a guest blog post.  It is the first time someone has asked me to guest blog, and I can honestly say I was so excited and a bit overwhelmed. I thought about what to write and nothing came to me.  Then, the other day I was writing and decided it would make a great guest blog post.

Anyways, here it is! My guest blog post…go check it out.

Epic Fail

9 Feb

Well, I did it. I missed a day of blogging. It’s probably for the best. I was in a not-so-great mood yesterday. Therefore, my blog would have probably been very pessimistic.

The skipped day was good for me. I was starting to feel like I was blogging everyday just to get keep up with my Post A Day.

Speaking of Post A Day, I have decided I think the topics are sort of lame. No offense to anyone who likes them, but every time I check the topic I feel like I can answer in one paragraph, sometimes in one sentence. Then again, I guess that’s something that doesn’t make me a writer. Not to mention, I feel like I’m trying to write a 5 paragraph essay like in 8th grade.

I really hope this is just a lack of motivation that is going to pass.  I really like blogging, but I don’t want it to start feeling like a chore.  I’m teetering on the brink of losing interesting which will make this just one more thing to add to my list of things I’ve never finished.

Wow, now that I think about it, I guess my pessimism ran on into today. After all, it is only 1:29 a.m., so my not-so-good mood is still lingering.

Living Forever

28 Jan

Living forever means always having to say good-bye.  Think about it.  If you lived forever you would have to watch everyone you care about pass on.  Personally, I don’t want to live like that.  I don’t think I could live day-to-day knowing that eventually every person I get close to will die at some point. My heart breaks even thinking about.  To live in a state of constant grieving would be unbearable.

Then I think about what really cool stuff could happen.  It would be amazing to see the changes in the world. I could see the day when there is a cure for AIDS.  I could see a flying car.  Artificial Intelligence could be a way of life (which I still think is kind of creepy). The possibilities are endless.

A world of possibilities is what helps make the world go round.  It still brings me back to being alone.  Living forever means I wouldn’t have anyone with whom I could share those possibilities.  I can’t do that. I must have people in my life.  I must have connections.  Living forever would make connections impossible.  I would rather die knowing I made connections and shared experiences.

Unless of course I was a vampire in The Twilight Saga-yes, I went there….
