My life has changed so completely that I barely identify with the person that wrote some of the things here. I may start someplace fresh on the interwebs, if I do, I will send a link.

I’m not done, I’m just done here. Signing off.

“elevendreams” – whoever that was!



As an active member (by extension) of The Peaceful Dragon martial arts school in Charlotte, NC, I have been blessed enough to make the acquaintance of our Grandmaster Ma FoRen/Frank DeMaria.

I was recently introduced to his blog. I was greatly impressed by his words and wanted to share his latest post along with my comment. I believe it speaks for itself.

Grandmaster’s Blog and my long ass comment(Scroll up to read his words first)

P.S. Pardon Grandmaster’s typos, he’s a pretty old dude. (But wise! Oh, so wise!)

SO!  I was wrong about the True Blood finale.  No Godric.  Oh well… Alan Ball, you should have taken my advice, it would have saved Jesus whom we grew to love so much.  Nobody likes a sad Laffy.

Onto new things… I got a new job!  I’m finally moving out of the consulting arena and into a full-time, permanent position with benefits.  Not necessarily what my “dream” was a few years ago, but dreams are often overshadowed by reality.

More new things… you could win a $500 Apple Gift Card!!  Yep, it’s true.  I found out about this contest through the awesome CecilyK, so as a way of thanking her and also entering myself into the contest, I am blogging about it here.  Good luck, all you Apple-heads!

Even MORE new things… my wonderful sister, my other half, my everything… is pregnant with her first baby!  Words cannot describe how terrific this is, or how happy I am for her.  She and her husband deserve this, and have tried for a long time.  This is one very wanted baby and the amount of love he or she will have will be insurmountable.  I’m also psyched to get to know my sister as a mother, since I’ve been one for almost 6 years now and she has yet to experience the fantastic, terrifying ride.

hooray for new things!

I have made decisions. I have grown and learned lessons. I have matured. I am intelligent and motivated. I am Mommy and sister and friend. I care. I give. I love.

I am frightened. I am unsure and unsteady. I am hurt and am the cause of others’ hurt. I am broken. I am damaged. I need help. I need love. I am optimistic and terrified.

I am alive and I am going!

Season Four: During the penultimate witch/vampire war,Godric takes over Laffy’s body, not only winning the Vamps a victory, but proving that they DO indeed have souls. We know Eric gets his memory back, still loves Sookie, thankyouverymuch The End.

A note to Alan Ball, if for nothing else, and I mean NOTHING else… thank you for the gratuitous eye candy during last night’s episode. What a beautiful bunch of men you’ve hired.

A selfish promotional piece!!

Thanks for loving me.

Apologies for the selfishness, but I will promise to the, what, 2 people who read my blog that I’ll come back soon and post all sorts of grisly, gossipy stuff. Oh, I KNOW.
