I actually would love to go to a poetry slam.

I like the movie Van Helsing, but I didn’t love it

I never actually made it all the way through The Lost Boys

Both Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe can sing better than me.

Tosha Michelle’s recent poem has a list of beautiful aphorisms about why we write. One of them inspired my description of how I reacted to Lucee’s voice. Check it out here and see if you spot it.

“An official at Russia’s Justice Ministry has said at the United Nations that the rights of the LGBT community were not violated in Chechnya because there were no gays there.”  This is both ridiculous and terrifying and they need to be called out on this.  See this link for the full article.

All of the other characters in this post are fictional except for me.

Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet, Bandito Burrito, and Flying Monkey Arts are all real to goodness awesome Alabama thangs.  Check em out.

I have included a link to Thrash Unreal by Against Me!  – just in case  😉

    An engaging and informative write Lona. A sudject matter beyond the personal experience of this old man, but certainly relevant to our time, and presented with fascinating detail, with a tastefully pointed, but comfortable touch. I prefer to deal with my vampires strictly in the realm of fiction. You kept me reading throughout. Nice work… 🙂

    Personally, I would have chosen werewolves, as my supernatural agent of change. Nothing like curling up against a warm furry body, on a cold night.


    Besides, I got a bad enough rep for being a creature of the night, as is. Considering the long hours, I’m awake, while everyone else is sleeping.

    Thanks, Lona, for your sarcastic humorous write. It brought a smile, tonight.

    1. I am glad it brought a smile. I do have a werewolf story percolating too, werewolves are nice, but they have their own considerations, like how it is hard to find a flea collar in their size, and how do you manage that embarrassing occasional wet carpet odor, 🙂.
