5 Places I Never Want to Visit

As some of you may have noticed, it has been about 2 months since my last post. There are a number of reasons for this that I won’t bore you with now. An amazing friend of mine told me that 2 months is way too long to go in between posts. She told me that I needed to correct this, and, when a dinosaur tells you to do something,  you do it. (Granted, while this dinosaur would never hurt anyone, it’s still a good rule of thumb to listen to the dinosaur.)

So, as my welcome back post, I’ve decided to write up a post that I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time. This is a list of cities I never want to visit. Continue reading

A Baby E Update

It’s potty training time in our household. Baby E has been doing pretty well with it. Something happened the other day that I feel I must share because it is hilarious.
I was watching T.V. when she ran up to me and yelled,  “I need to poopy!”
That means I have to follow her to the bathroom because she isn’t tall enough to reach the light switch yet. I turn it on and go back to watching T.V. (our bathroom is right next to the living room so I was still close to her). A minute goes by and I don’t hear anything from her. I started getting worried because, as every parent knows, silence is never a good thing. I was just about to go check on her when I heard it.
It was a very loud grunt, followed by my sweet, little baby girl screaming, “Come out, poopy! Come out! ”
I love my daughter. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.

A New Old Story

According to the notification I just got from WordPress, yesterday was the fifth anniversary of my blog. Please, hold your applause. No…. wait a minute. On second thought, don’t hold your applause. Make it loud. I’ll wait….

I can’t hear you….

You’re not applauding, are you? Sigh….

Anyways, in honor of this, I thought I’d tell a story from within that period of time. I’m pretty sure I’ve never told this one before. I suppose I could look it up, but that seems like more time than I want to spend on it. Besides, it’s not going to hurt you to read it again if I’ve already told it.

Memorial Service Update

Revis Edgewater:

I wish I could be there. It is also the only time I support wearing blue.

Originally posted on The Matticus Kingdom:

Rara will be there!

She’ll be shackle and handcuff free, but will still be in her prison blues.

So, if you are coming, to show support for her, wear blue.  Blue scrubs.  Blue shirts.  Blue ties.  Blue anything.  Just wear blue.

She should be showing up around 9:30…

I’ll probably be there around then too.

Sad News

Revis Edgewater:

I talked to Grayson through email a number of times. He helped me out with my writing. I didn’t “know him” know him, but because of him, I’m a better writer. He will certainly be missed.

I have terrible news to share with the blogosphere today.

Horrible, no good, awful news.

Many of you knew him as Grayson Queen, author and artist extraordinaire.  Perhaps you’ve read one of his novels.  Perhaps you’ve purchased, or at least enjoyed, some of his paintings or sculptures…  Perhaps you knew that he was also Rara‘s husband, Dave.

I don’t have a lot of details, but I can confirm that Dave passed away earlier this week.

Please share this post wide and far.  Please say a prayer for Dave and Rara.  Please send her every ounce of spare energy you can muster.  She needs us.  Dave’s family and friends need us.

And send her mail to show her your love, your RawrLove:

Radhika Jaini WF0124
16756 Chino-Corona Road
Corona, CA  92880

You don’t need to know what to say.  You don’t need to say anything…

Ultimate Comic Book Team

The guys I used to work with aren’t really around anymore. Both of them still work here, but they’re in jobs that don’t really let us BS as much as we used to. Every once in awhile,  we’ll be able to come up with a nonsensical question that would lead to hours of pointless debate. However, it’s not an every day thing anymore.
The most recent attempt came last week when talking about the Avengers. That led to a discussion about the team members, which turned into a discussion about why certain members shouldn’t be on the team. Predictably,  it then became an argument about who should be on the team. It finally settled on ” What is your ultimate comic book team”?
