I’m back!

I’m back!

Have had a wonderful and totally unproductive weekend so far. Received a big box of books earlier in the week and have done nothing at all but stayed curled up with coffee, kitties and good stories. So far it’s been:

  • A Wild Night – Marjorie M. Liu
  • Eternal Kiss of Darkness – Jeaniene Frost
  • Dark Warrior Untamed – Alexis Morgan

And I’ve found another good series to follow:

  • The Demon in Me – Michelle Rowen

All “fluff”, all enjoyable reads with good stories.

So, I was a little lax about posting anything for the month of July. Let’s see it’s been hot as hell, I believe the hottest July in NYC ever, but I like it. I am now in the 1 year countdown to the much dreaded turning 40 don’t even get me started on that. If I think about it too much I can get a bit crazy. Trying to decide on a new car because my lease is up soon. Planning out the next run of home improvements which will start in about a week.  Working but what else is new. Made a promise to treat myself a little better this upcoming year even if it’s just small things like a mani, pedi and facial once a week. Nothing really major going on just lots of little stuff.

I’m trying to put together a little birthday party for my Aunt, 85th I think? The hard part is coming up with guests. My family has become so small. That’s depressing in it’s own way but not near enough to push me anywhere near adding to it . I’m dying to go see Inception, it’s the first movie I’ve been excited about since Terminator Salvation. Just not enough sci-fi stuff out there right now.

And on that note I must sign off as the price to pay for a lazy Saturday is a very busy Sunday.

I think I may even need to sit down now that I am writing a post two days in a row. Trying to work out my layout here and I’m stuck!  Somewhere, hiding from me are pixels which are just a teensy bit too big and are throwing everything else off. I have it narrowed down to two images but still not figuring out exactly what the issue is. I’m just going to let it rest for a little while and give it a go again later. For now it just is what it is. Still obsessing over Peter Steele(leaving another pic here so I don’t lose it), still don’t know why and I know it’s not going to stop until I nail down what the catch is. Oh to be one of those people who can just go with the flow. Nope not me. If there is a wall in front of me I will keep trying to go through it rather than around. Why? Apparently I like when things are difficult.

Trying to get into a book I started reading but it’s just not happening. I wish the a new Dark-Hunter book would come out. I am jonesing for a fix. That’s right fluffy vampire fiction. Love it! I like the darker stuff too, the whole vampire thing just does it for me what can I say. I mean who wouldn’t want to never grow old, never die and be at the height of physical perfection without ever working for it. Speaking of which this is now the 2nd night in a row I’m misbehaving and skipping the drill. Ummm.. I feel guilty. Maybe that’s what I should go do now. Nah!

I have a purry kitten love right where I am…does it get better than this?

So it’s really weird. I have sort of been obsessing over the death of Peter Steele of Type O Negative. Weird because it’s not like I am a huge fan of TON, I mean I liked the songs I heard and knew but that’s about it. I can’t say I followed the band or anything. Never saw them live, sort of wishing I had now. I truly don’t know why it’s in my thoughts so much. Yes I think he was an incredibly beautiful man, anyone who knows me would see he was right up my alley, but I don’t think that’s it. I guess I just think it’s very sad. I’ve pretty much gone through all the interviews and videos I can find online, staying up until the wee hours of the am just watching and reading. I never realized how great they played live or how many songs they have that I never heard and find I like. I worked with someone who in some way knew him, don’t remember how or how well, I do remember him saying that he was a good guy and not at all changed by fame as far as how he treated people. As I said weird. Well since I don’t believe that anyone ever totally ceases to exist and that death is just moving on to something else I’ll leave it at that. May he have found the peace and forgiveness he was hoping for.
