Revis, An Introduction

It was suggested that my first post of NaBloPoMo be an introduction. I’m not very good at talking about myself, so this will probably cause more questions than answers. I’ll endeavor to give it a go regardless.

On this here blogosphere, I go by the name Revis Edgewater. I am 38 years old. I’m married to the most beautiful and incredible woman on the planet (Mrs. Revis), and we have a 4 year old daughter together (Baby E). They are everything to me. Now, because they are everything to me, and the weekends are really the only time we get to spend together, I’m going to be reposting a serial story that I did a while ago on Saturdays and Sundays this month. I chose this story for a couple of reasons. 1. I just reread it recently and, even if it’s not my best work, I really enjoyed writing it. 2. While you can find it on my blog, it was actually originally posted on StuphBlog, the blog I used to share with my brother.

I have been blogging on here for around 6 years now. I have not been as big a part of the blogging community as I would like. That’s mainly because most of my free time is devoted either to spending time with my girls, or working on numerous writing projects. I have one solo project going on. I also have a couple that I’m working on with my writing partner, Matt of The Matticus Kingdom.

As far as a theme of this blog, or an answer as to what it’s all about…. there is none.

What you see on this blog are just the ramblings of my mind. That can be stories, a few poems, things that happen to me, or just random stuff that pops into my head. There really is no rhyme or reason to the things that I post. I just post on whatever comes to mind and hope people like it.

So, if you like what you read, you’re welcome to keep coming back. If not, no hard feelings. Either way, I hope you have a great day.

Sincerely,

Revis Edgewater

Trick or Treat!

Holy crap! Twindaddy! What are you doing on 33 Grams of Blog?

Well, dear readers of 33 grams, I and Jaded have already posted stuph today and I am bored and feel like doing the Daily Prompt. I hope that’s a good enough reason to justify my presence here. If not, bite me.

Today is Halloween. Obviously. And unsurprisingly, the DP has a Halloween related prompt. Shall we get to it?

If bloggers had their own Halloween and could go from blog to blog collecting “treats,” what would your blog hand out?

This is an interesting thing to pontificate. You guys come knocking on my bloggeh door and I have to hand some treat out? Hmmmm…

Well, I could hand out a little advice from Blunt Life Coach. Or I could hand out some memes. Or even some eCards. Virtual hugs, maybe (to everyone but Art, because creepy)? Or I could just hand out random stuph or even 33 grams of me kicking ass.

This is such a tough decision. What should I hand out? Should I pull a Hasty and hand you all another prompt? Should I take a page from the sick and twisted Alice and hand out buttplugs in honor of the scariest thing to ever happen to literature (that’s a 50 Shades of Grey reference, folks)?

Ack! I don’t know! I can’t think of anything!!

Ah hah! I know! I’ll hand out guest posts on Stuphblog! Want one? All you have to do is leave a comment and say Trick or Treat! Oh, and tell me what your costume is, because obviously I can’t see you.

Anything in the World

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to wish me a happy birthday on Tuesday. I started to thank each of you individually, but I stopped when I realized how long that would take. As much as I would like to, I just don’t have the time to do it. So, thank you all. Your well wishes truly mean a lot to me.

You Ever Been to Jail Before?

Road trips. Some people like them. Others hate them. I don’t really feel one way or the other about them. They are a necessary evil. Some are good and some are bad. I’ve had some fairly good road trips and others that were just disasters.

There is one road trip that stands out amongst the crowd, however. One of the thousands of road trips I’ve made that is just so horribly epic that its story must be shared.

It was 1995. My (then) step dad was a truck driver. He was a cross country truck driver. He was in Bentonville, Arkansas when he decided he didn’t want to work for whatever company he was employed by at the time. So he quit. Right then. He didn’t own his own truck so he was stuck there. He called my mother and enlisted us to come and pick him up.

Yay. Continue reading

Quit Copying Me!!

Back in February, I put up a post called I Feel Violated. It was something I posted in response to getting ‘tagged’ by the always fabulous Elyse. If you look at the first part of the post, you’ll see that I was asked to provide a picture of myself, and you will see the picture that I put up. After I posted it, and people quit commenting on it, I forgot about it.

To Fight or Not to FIght

I’m sorry, Daily Prompt, that I couldn’t get to you earlier today.  It’s very late, but those assholes at work actually made me do work today.  I know!  I can’t  believe it either!  I was pissed.  So anyway, now that I’m finally here….PROMPT ME!

When faced with confrontation, do you head for the hills or walk straight in? Was there ever a time you wished you’d had the opposite reaction?

Well, DP, you’ve unearthed one of my most troubling foibles.  I loathe confrontation.  I avoid it at all costs, really.  I hate arguing.  I hate fighting.  I hate it all.  It’s so unnecessary.  So avoidable.  So…stupid. Continue reading

Vice Versa, But Cooler

Why, hello, Daily Prompt.  We keep running into each other on a more infrequent basis these days.  What’s that you say?  You don’t recognize these surroundings?  Of course you don’t.  This is my first post over at 33 Grams of Blog.  And stuph™.

In case you missed it, DP, I will be making occasional appearances here just because.  I have no good reason other than because.  So there.  No, don’t get all pissy with me.  This is how it’s going to be.  Didn’t you read the post?  No?  Well, here’s the link.  Do we finally have that settled?  Good.  Moving on.  PROMPT ME!

If you could switch blogs with any blogger for a week, with whom would you switch and why? Continue reading
