  The chilly weather has me needing layers and craving new gear (which can be a very dangerous thing) so this weeks round up is all about riding gear. Lucky for you, I just made it one picture so you can scroll down to cookie awesomeness – or you can actually check out those spiftastic handles that I’m putting on my wishlist. Yeah, I seriously need a black jersey. Why? Because who doesn’t feel bad ass when clothed in all black? I know it certainly makes me prance around the house like a ninja. Yeah, I’m full of inspiring posts this week […]

Halloween Martinis

We’re not going to talk about how it snowed in October (which is very out of the ordinary for my part of the states). We are not going to talk about how Handsome and I hopped in the truck anxious to find a new adventure, drove 2 hours north yesterday just to find that some places actually got a LOT of snow and that entire towns were out of power.

I had visions of creating a post filled with wicked witches and poison apples, riddles wrapped in fables and tales of childhood characters spun in a whole new way to coordinate with ABC’s new show, Once Upon a Time. The thing is, I got a little poisoned appled out a bit early in the month and secondly, read Fables instead. Fables is a comic – bare with me – like you have never read. It’s my ‘gateway drug’, my ‘comic crack baby’, and easily my number one selling graphic novel. And there’s a reason for it. Fables takes every fairy tale character […]

I am the queen at saying things that make you want to chew on your toes. Queen. If the position for emperor is open, I am certainly in the candidacy soon to be running for overlord. With this little tidbit of knowledge in mind I’m going to share a story.   The other night I was at a friends house and his roommate was keeping watch over our attempt to repair my sewing machine with his hot tea in hand. The roommate stood silently for a while while my friend and I carried on around him. Finally he spoke, “So, […]

Halloween Popcorn

I remember walking along the board walk when I was little with my parents. It was night time and the whole boardwalk was lit up and people were everywhere. I saw an awesome ride in the distance that looked like a whirley car going down a hill. I pointed to it and my father asked if that’s what I really wanted to go on, so I nodded yes.   What he thought I was pointing at and what I actually wanted to do were two very different things and the next thing I knew I was in my first haunted […]
