Under the Sea

Under the Sea

I have a thing for jellyfish. I keep Monterey Bay Aquarium’s live jellyfish cam bookmarked for stress relief. I could probably watch jellyfish float all day and be content. (Did someone say jellyfish?) But jellyfish aren’t my only underwater loves. Aquariums are one of my favorite places to visit and I haven’t been to one …

Shiny and Chrome

I’ve made my feelings about Mad Max; Fury Road loud and clear; I love it. I would put it on endless repeat, if I could. We went to see it twice, which is something my husband and I rarely do. But we loved the original Mad Max, and we loved Road Warrior even more (you …

How Do You Like to Game?

How Do You Like to Game?

For a long time, I’ve wanted to write about my favourite video games. The problem is, they change so rapidly, the post would likely be out of date by the time it went up. (For those that don’t know, I write my blogs about a month in advance.) But today I had a brilliant idea …

But outside that, it also inspired me to read several classic novels. To the long list of things music (especially heavy metal) has inspired me …

Fun with Playlist Synergy

As I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions, I have playlists for everything. I have playlists to get me in the mood to write, lists for while I’m writing and epic music to listen to while I’m editing (because I need particular inspiration during that part of the process). I have play lists for when I need …

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

Growing up, we awakened at the fun-filled hour of five AM so that our mom could take us to day care in time to get to work. I don’t remember much from those haze-filled hours where I rolled out of bed and stumbled down the stairs after several attempts to roll over and go back …

Comfort Food

Comfort Food

It’s been awhile since I talked about cooking. While we lived in the UK, we had a small kitchen and didn’t have room to store the bulk ingredients you usually keep stocked in the pantry. We made due as best we could but, now that we’re back, we’re happy to stretch our culinary muscles once …
