for my silly friends that have been up and shopping since Midnight, loves you, but you are bonkers! Please call me later, coffee hook-up!
then my planned Thanksgiving project on here was a tad bit more involved than I thought, so I’m making it my Holiday project. :D
and on Bob&Sherry, this morning, Kathy Reichs!!! finally a show I could listen to, and wanted more. She was discussing her newest book, and forensic science. Also did you know she had written an episode of Bones for last season? Wow!
finally; a conundrum: I have enough $ to do one or the other but not both. Please help me decide; Massage or Starbase Indy?? both are tomorrow-for me. So let me know! I’m really stuck on this one and can’t seem to decide on my own. lol :D
and Happy TGIF! yes, I’m at work while the majority of ppl are out shopping, or the sane ones are still sleeping. lol Seriously, it takes a bit of silliness to go out at o’dark hundred for a few good deals. Ppl, internet shopping, open 24/7/365, free shipping, and delivered to your door. Sometimes you can get free gift-wrapping, and delivery to their door! Also no lines, means no stress. Just a thought. I love online shopping this time of the year. I can do a no-pants shopping trip! LOL *Waves to @BgKahuna on Twitter. (You should follow him, omg! He makes me giggle when I really need one. HUGS)
I love my Best Friend!!
I get to go for my massage & Starbase Indy! Thank you!!! Huggles & Smoochies
okay so I’m on call today, and boy howdy it has been busy…
When I was called on, I was leaving my house, and near my house is a cemetary. No big. And let me preface this next bit with….I have nothing against various religious burial beliefs. I am Wiccan and Native American/Irish. (Boy does that cause some fun family religious discussions.)
However with that being said, I did have an “Uh what?” moment.
I was driving by the cemetary and a person was laying down a pine weaved ‘blanket’ (like a christmas tree only flat) over the gravesite and they were decorating it with twinkling lights and other ornaments. Okay?
I have seen ppl put small christmas trees and poinsettas at graves before, but Um I have never seen anything this elaborate. And no, I don’t know if I’ll take a pic of it or not. Seems like I’d be violating someone’s eternal rest. Just me.
** Musing 2
So as I was saying, I was driving into work, and my lead foot got the better of me for a moment, and then I hear the “Whooooooo” of the sirens behind me. No big, I pull over and come to a stop. My windows are broke-can’t roll ‘em down, so I open the door a bit, and the Officer says, “Hi M’Chel. Bit of a hurry?” I explain to him I’m on-call, and he says okay, warning this time, and follow me. So I had a semi-escort down the road a bit. Now here’s my musing; should I be concerned the police now know me on a first name basis? LOL
** Musing 3
So as I’m pulling into my offices parking lot, I reach for my drink and huh? There’s one of those starbuck cup thingies there. You know what I mean, the one’s that you put on your cup to stop from burning your fingers. And I’ve noticed I’m reusing it! Yes! It holds my drink in place, no rocking/sliding and spilling on my interior and it even absords the sweat off the drink. Woot! *\0/*
So see this is another example of how my brain works, I find this stuff quite amusing and well, quite frankly I hope ya’ll do too. Otherwise…I might be the only one out there that’s … yeah, Groovy! LOL
oy vey is it 8p yet??? I’m hungry, I want some chai…lol told my friend, I whine, but I know when to stop myself too. But oy I am hungry! LOL
So I’m killing my form spring thingie….to many weird pervy questions, but hey, I have a question forum here! So ask away? If I don’t wanna answer it, there are two options; I let you know, the other is my smartass comment. Hey I’m honest! lol
I love interaction with my readers, and for those that really enjoy the stories, that my Co-writer and I work hard on.
So the question I received was; How do Ki’Tarans look? Briana is a hybrid. So what do they-Ki’Tarans look like?
I can only answer with a series of art pieces from the Uber talented, Phillip M. Jackson aka Jolly Jack. First I love his sarcastic humor and then his art…OH BOY! He has a gallery on Deviant Art; http://jollyjack.deviantart.com/gallery/ please please go check him out, and let him know what you think? Unless it’s a flame, please, he has plenty of those from some trolls. LOL
Anywho, his art and his characters!! Let me say that again, this is his art, and his characters, however this is how I envision Ki’Tarans. Brilliant, an artist I love, and bonus, his characters are how I envision my created race. awww! lol
First up, his Character, Sky! as a female Ki’Taran
And for the male Ki’Taran
Some lovely pieces to show the size differential of the male/females. And these feature his main character, Kat. She is from Sequential Art, and omg…seriously go giggle your ass off at this series. http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php go back to the beginning!
and another beautiful art piece, yes Ki’Tarans come in all shapes, and colors. They have their clans. but more on that later.
Yes I am working on a piece to showcase Ki’Tara, and the culture, etc. Stay tuned…
How nice, Paul Poteet came by! And if you check out the comment he left, he does have an internet talk thingie. He is also on the web at paulpoteet.com I hope I got that right. I have signed up for his daily weather reports via email. And if you live in Indiana, I highly suggest you do the same.
Now then, I am wahoo’ing…I get to leave work early tomorrow. I get to go to an appointment, that I keep cancelling. I know, I leave work early and I’m excited to go to an appt. Well yes!
Most of ya’ll know I’m a counselor. And I always explain to my client’s the importance of keeping appointments. So when I can’t do that, it kinda irks me a little. I know. But most people don’t work weekends, and I have a rotating schedule. Which actually I just changed that for the month’s of December and January. My co-worker likes me right now! I might even have a good christmas present from her. I told her, “Whatever?” LOL So for the month’s of Dec/Jan, kittens, I will be working the later shift; Noon to 9pm. (I know a few ppl care to know my schedule. LOL)
anywho, it is getting colder out, and I’m looking forward to going home and getting in my comfy jammies, and fixing some hot chocolate, and coloring on that beautiful art pressie I received of Briana. A new artist to collaborate with! I’m always excited about that. And I’ve got a surprise Holiday present being worked on as well, for my wonderful co-writer! :D
When I was younger, I loved recieving books, and craft kits as a kid for the Holidays, now I love recieving art presents, that I may color. It’s still a creative outlet, and gets my creative writing processes going. Win/Win situation, who doesn’t love those? lol
so anywho…I’m just about out the door for the day, but wanted to thank Paul Poteet for stopping by and leaving such a nice and informative comment. You’re the best, Paul! ~hugs~
I know some people like the inane chatter of radio “personalities”
I’m not one of them, and if I were, I would sign up for Sirius radio.
I love the music on the channel I wake up to, and have programmed in the car, but the morning “Personalities” need to STFU! I get so tired of their whining! I know, change the channel. And believe me, I have. But…dammit I like the music they play.
If what they talked about was the ‘least’ bit interesting, I wouldn’t mind. But omg- BFE ppl find this entertaining? Obviously! Their sponsorship has grown. I won’t be shopping at those places, and if I do. I won’t mention where I heard about them. I do enjoy Paul Poteet’s weather spots. The one “Personality” I look fwd to hearing from. Now I wish he had his own radio channel. :D
My migraine is starting to go away. One of the nice nurse’s that I work with, gave me some better ibuprofin than I had, my migraine meds I took this morning wasn’t working…and it’s starting to reduce down to a maneagable level, finally. yay
and I’m knocking on wood, it’s been a pretty reasonable day. Thank goodness, it’s been overwhelming the past week and a half. Lets hope this holds out for a while. Any one know when the next full moon is? LOL And yes, there is truth to that theory…I never believed it, till I started working in my Field. :D
I’m hoping to still leave a lil early tonight, I’m still dealing with the side effects from the one med’s and oy vey, do they kick my ass. And add to my fibro pain. I’ve had nights with iffy rest. I have slept, but I haven’t really rested. Some will know what I mean. oh yeah, I have cut back a lot on my caffeine intake, Mmmm water! If I say that enough, maybe it’ll be true. LOL
And a huge thank you to those that have remembered, I too, am a Veteran, and have sent me lovely e-cards or emails. Thank you, that means a lot, truly!!! Oooh and the hugs I’ve gotten at work have been pretty good too. lol
so till later, back to working on Ch 6 and a stand alone story I’ve been working/plotting on…
oooh hey there’s a plot bunny in my office…whoops! I like that story idea better. Need to go write! and my co-writer reminded me of a story we need to finish. I told him he could be bossy for a change…usually, I’m the bossy one cracking the whip. lmao Loves you!!!
Don’t forget, there’s still time to Thank a Vet! Hugs
The Veterans Day is celebrated to honor those who served our country and to remember those who sacrificed their lives to achieve peace and democracy for their beloved nation.
It’s important to educate our children about Veterans Day and to understand the sacrifices these brave soldiers made and continue to make, to fight for our country.
Veterans Day is Thursday, November 11 and local military members both past and present have an opportunity to take advantage of free offers and food all weekend long even into next Monday.
Hopefully you will find just the quotation you want from this selection of Veterans Day quotes. You may also be interested in our previous article about the meaning and history of Veterans Day.

Is their monument to-day, and for aye.

***Feel free to send me a pic of you in Uniform, I’d love to do an entry of my fellow Vet’s & Friends!
Okay, yes, I roleplay Commander Briana Storm, actually I’m her creator and story writer. Roleplaying used to be fun! And then RL intruded. LOL :D seriously though, I do love writing, and thank goodness my co-writer likes writing with me. However we don’t have a lot of time in RL to rp the stories anymore.
So to confuse or maybe not…
Our Adventures continue in story format on my Scribd website, link when I get home. And hopefully my co-writer will have a spot there as well. As he writes stories by himself too! Great stuff!!! *** ooh the linkie is down below in my timeline. I’ll reblog it to the top after this is posted. :D
on Twitter we’re going to go back to spontaneous fun! Meaning what we tweet, may not have anything to do with the storylines in the stories. Just us having fun, and interacting with people again. I miss that! so sorry If I have spoiled anyone by telling you, I’m Commander Storm. LMAO =^.~= purrs
And I’ll be on my way to work shortly. Feelin much better than yesterday, but ooh still have really bad body aches, and stomach cramps. Oh well! Time to suck it up and move on.
Reminder; This week is an important holiday? Let me know if you know what it is?
And this week my baby brother is celebrating his birthday. We are throwing him a party, but he’s giving us grief about wearing a hat. LOL :D we’ll see who wins.
And oog, gotta go. Laters All!
Hugs to my friends, and please say an extra prayer for my friend’s father, he’s in surgery today to have a procedure reversed from his cancer treatment. We’re hoping for no extra issues, and they he comes through fine and healthy! thank you in advance for your prayers, good thoughts/vibes, etc.
Uber Sale Still Going Updated
Tue Nov 9, 2010, 6:52 AM
Just took the 11x17’s off the market for this sale. Still have many spots available for other sizes. I may open up an 11x14 size in the event people are interested. I won’t know unless people let me know though
Feedback so far for this sale is… slow. But I’ve sold one piece for sure. One I haven’t heard back yet… I’ve had inquiries from the outrageous to the unusual lately. And a lot of great ideas. However… I need to explain something. And this is something that’s very hard to do, because NO ONE wants to really read through a novel, to get a commission. The price, the size and what detail… that’s usually it. I’m the same way. I don’t read the fine print a lot, or I don’t see restrictions. So, let me at least say this much… The pieces I’m offering are one character per. Meaning, a drawing of one character on whatever size. If you want another character, yeah I’ll do it, but it’s going to cost a little extra. How much? Depends on the size and I’ve indicated how much, on the list here. It’s not greed mind you but “Can you do the entire Justice League for me on 5x17 and have it done by Christmas?” NOT gonna happen, sorry.
"Why the hell are you saying the bigger pieces may take more time? Aren’t you a fast artist? Or are you lazy?"
Whilst I’m doing my sale, I am working on other projects too. Comic Pages that need inking, Base cards for sketch card sets that I need to draw and color, or just color someone elses card art for a set. I’m also working on Cult Stuff sketch cards and they are due by the end of December. I’m also working on Sonic Jack in my spare time, and some Angel cards for various people as a memory of my best friend who passed away in July this year and lastly, pin ups for prints for hopefully next years con circuit that I’d like to get on. So, I’m cranking out the work, and staying on schedule, which is kinda funny considering the hefty helping of stuff on my plate. I like it though. Pushes me to get better in my art, and get faster in my production.
Ok, that said…
Backgrounds - I don’t do a lot of backgrounds on these cards. Minimal, which for me well, you can see what minimal is on the sketch cards I have done, and what not. I don’t sit and put a ton of detail in or put a whole city scene into the background. But I will give you your money’s worth. that much I can promise.
Ok, I gotta get back to work, and head over to buy more art supplies, that I don’t want to buy but I need to lol. Life of an artist. At least I’m not spending money on hookers and drugs… right?
I would appreciate a little help from those able to… to spread the word for me. I thank you immensely for the help.

the med’s I’ve been taking have interacted badly with the other med’s I’m on…lovely! yes that is sarcasm!

We decided to go look for a figure I’ve been trying to find; Monster High’s Clawdeen Wolf.
so far no luck either!
but it wasn’t a complete loss; I did find the plushie
The back of the box is so cute with Crescent’s bio;
Age: Kitten Killer Style: I am devastaginly cute which means fashion is a slave to me, although I do have a rhinestone encrusted spiked collar I like to lounge about in. Pet: Clawdeen Wolf. I’m very proud of her and like to show her off to my other friends. She’s almost as fierce and fuzzy as me. Favorite Activity: Sleep, attack Clawdeen when she sleeps, sleep some more. Biggest Pet Peeve: When some monster enters the room without acknowledging my status as alpha kitty. Favorite Food: Tuna Steak…rare. BFF’s: Watzit and Count Fabulous.
I love this bio!!!
And online I found these cute pixel dollies, including a Boy friend for Clawdeen!
So for those that want to help me locate a Clawdeen Wolf, please let me know. She is sold at Target, ToysRUs, Meijer and some Wal-Marts. I am willing to pay cost and reasonable s&h. Thank you! Huggles
so it started Monday, I was exposed to an infectious disease, and am now on med’s where the side effects are omfg! one of them; body spasm’s are not helping my Fibro!
I hung through the week like a good trooper!
Friday, I had had enough, and asked if I could leave a little early, the boss being the generous guy he is said yes. So I left early. And then…
my car died in the intersection of early rush hour traffic. And OMFG! People were honking at me! I had my blinker’s on, this wasn’t a joke. I got out to push/steer my bug and some jerk tried to hit me. Yes! On purpose!
Anywho finally some nice guys stopped and helped me push it to a parking lot. I finally got it towed to a service station. Went today, and get this…”We don’t work on Bug’s.” Dude! That’s not what you said yesterday??? OMFG!
so I called Daddy who came and got me this morning, took me to get Starbuck’s- he doesn’t like Starbuck’s, think it’s ‘Foofy Coffee’ (whatever?) And he had my car towed to a service repair car place that will work on my bug and not cost me an arm and a leg. Yay! \0/
Now I’m home, trying to get warm, I’m so cold lately, which isn’t me. And then I’ll be back to coloring some stuff, and catching up on tv on Hulu! Yes, I finally have cable, but don’t make it home in time, or forget about the fact I now have tv. LOL
