Wednesday Words – Movie Dream Cast

Have you noticed that our Wednesday Words posts are often lists of hot people that we love? LOL yeah, me too. But here we go again! This week our topic is to think up a dream cast for a movie version of a book. :) Being the often confused one of the group my first thought was, “Of a book I’ve written? Or a book I love that isn’t a movie yet?” Then Jess in all of her wisdom was like, “Either!” Which didn’t help me at all, damn it. LOL (I still love you, Jess!)

Here’s the thing… I’ve got a handful of finished books I’ve written but they’re all fanfic. Specifically, fanfic revolving around a particular hot boy band member, sometimes in an AU type of setting. So the obvious dream cast would be to have the people they’re based on star in a movie version of the book. But that would be a really boring blog post. :p My other issue is that of my non-fanfic stuff, none of them are finished and only a handful of people have read them. To add on to that, the thought of choosing some other book to cast is making my head hurt. LOL why do I make things so difficult?!

So I guess I’ll just cast one of the unfinished pieces. It’s actually not that hard because when I started writing this one, I had a bunch of people already in my head. Haha… not to be confused with the voices in my head. The book, at this point at least, is called Homecomming. It’s about a chick in her twenties named Jasmine Pezotti who is from Michigan and she’s a writer. A film crew comes to her home town to make a movie and she meets a uber cute movie star named Carter Greene. They have this amazing love affair but over the years suffer tradgedy and when the book begins it’s pretty much the end of their relationship. Jasmine comes home to Michigan to be with family, and dun dun dunnnnn… her long-time crush Trevor Hart is back home and totally single and still head over heals in love with her. So she’s trying to find herself again, falling in love/lust, and trying to figure out if things with Carter are truly over or not. Typical love triangle gushy love story. :) Oh and in an interesting twist, Jasmine’s in the process of having one of her books turned into a movie during the story too. So there ya go… :)

Here’s my cast as they currently live in my head.

Jasmine Pezotti – played by Jennifer Lawrence

Kevin Pezotti (Jasmine’s big brother) – played by Kevin Richardson

Gracie Pezotti (Niece extrodinaire, Kevin’s daughter) – played by random adorable kid

Carter Greene – played by Nick Carter

Trevor Hart – played by Joe Manganiello

There are other characters too, but I don’t have anyone in mind for them. LOL

So let’s see what the other Wednesday girls have in mind for their movies, shall we?

Writing Challenge

Hello from the frozen tundra of Michigan! I know, you’re probably confused because I’m posting on a Monday. Have no fear, it’s just a new thing the blogger girls are doing. I was supposed to start it last month but yeah… It didn’t happen. Anyway, so the first Monday of the month we’ll be posting a little writing piece inspired by a photo.

Here’s this month’s picture…


To be honest, I didn’t have a freaking clue what to write. But as I was outside shoveling snow I got a few ideas. :). This belongs to the world of Catie and Nick who were the main characters in one of my favorite fanfics that I’ve written from forever ago. The fic was called Shades of Gray. Yeah… it was my title first, damn it! LOL without further ado, here’s what I was able to come up with. :)

The Cottage

“It’ll be so romantic,” Nick muttered to himself as he pulled his sweater cap over his already frozen ears. “She’ll love it…” He rolled his eyes and got back to the task at hand, shoveling a path through two feet of snow with a shovel fit for a midget. Okay, maybe midget wasn’t the PC word. Tiny person? Vertically challenged? Whatever. It was a damn small shovel and he was six foot two. The shovel was the only one available in the little cottage though so it was what he used.

With each scoop of the tiny shovel Nick became even more frustrated. The whole stupid week had been one disaster after another. Originally the plan had sounded great. Nick and his wife Catie would spend the week of his thirty-fifth birthday in a rustic cottage together. All alone and away from the stress of the last year, they’d spend most of the week in bed, and the rest of it hanging out in front of a fire. It was more for Cate than it was for his birthday. He didn’t care where they were as long as they were together. But all of her friends said the cottage would be a great idea and she would just love it.

Well she did love it, for the first few days. It was a romantic getaway straight from a cheesy novel and she loved it. They made love like they were newlyweds again and spent time getting just being together. No tours, no businesses to run, no press hoarding them, just the two of them in the cottage.

Then it started to snow, which she also loved. They lived in Florida so snow was a big deal. But it didn’t stop snowing. The weather channel called it the biggest snow storm to hit the area in ten years. They’d thought about heading out early, but had decided to be brave, or maybe stupid, and stay. That was a day before the main road had become impassible and even the plows weren’t attempting to get through.

Nick looked at the little progress he’d made and he wanted to chuck the little shovel into the woods. It was like trying to shovel with a teaspoon. The wind didn’t help either. He’d start making a dent and then the wind would blow everything back. Fucking snow.

They had plenty of firewood, and food. It wasn’t like they were in any danger. It was just annoying. The satellite tv they’d come to rely on for news from the outside world was out. Their cell phones had no service, and the land line only seemed to work between three and four a.m. if the wind was blowing in the right direction.

“It’s like we’re in a snow globe…” is what Cate had said on the first day of the storm with a great big excited smile. Three days later the only reason he was even bothering with the shoveling was because she was freaking the fuck out. “What if it just keeps snowing? What it we can’t get out or we run out of food? That lady who owns the cottage looked like she was pushing ninety, what if she dies and never told anyone we were up here so no one comes to check?”

He had to admit, her freaking out was pretty damn funny. She’d been perfectly okay with the whole situation until she’d noticed that the front door of the cottage had a waist high snow drift up against it. That’s when the doom rolled in and all she could think about was all of the awful ways they would die in their little romantic setting.

“We’re not going to die, babe…” he’d told her and laughed. Then she’d cried because she thought he was laughing at her.

“I won’t let anything happen to you. We’re here together and we’re safe. As soon as the snow stops they’ll clear the road and we’ll get the hell out of here. We’ll be back home with the pups and the sunshine.” To that she reminded him that he was a pretty boy pop star from Florida and he had the survival skills of a princess.

After what felt like three hours, but was probably more like forty minutes, when he couldn’t feel his toes and he was pretty sure he’d never play the drums again because his fingers were all going to break off, he gave up on shoveling and made his way back inside. The sweet smell of something baking hit him as soon as the heat began to revive his frozen skin. He stripped of his snow covered layers and left them in a heap near the door. The fire he’d built earlier was still roaring and was practically calling his name.

“Cate?” he called out and held his fingers toward the fire. “Honey?” Once he actually began to feel his fingers again he turned his ass toward the fire. How or why people actually chose to live in snowy areas was beyond him. Visiting, sure, but to deal with the shit day in and day out was not something he ever wanted to do. Ever.

He was about to call out for Catie again when she came out of the bedroom, “Hey, Froggie…” She threw him a smile and a wave as she stepped into the small kitchen area to check on whatever she was baking.

If she was calling him by his nickname, she definitely wasn’t freaking out anymore. He didn’t totally trust her improved mood though. “Whatcha’ baking?”

“Cookies,” she replied just as the timer went off. He watched her move around the kitchen taking the cookie sheet from the oven. She looked happy. Sounded happy. Plus she was baking, she had to be okay for the moment. Right?

“So, um… You feeling better? I cleared a decent path so you can get out to the car if you need to.”

“I’m good. I was just freaking out.”

He chucked, “Little bit.”

She smiled that smile that he’d fallen for the first day they’d met all of those years ago. The one that made everything better, no matter what. She left the cookies to cool and made her way to where he stood by the fire. She wrapped her arms around his waist and pressed her body to his. “I love you, Nicky. This trip was super sweet of you and I’m sorry I lost my shit.”

He smiled and kissed the top of her head, “It’s okay. Although calling me a princess was a bit much.”

She laughed and looked up at him, “Not my best moment… Sorry, again.”

He failed to hide his grin from her. Even when she was freaking out and calling him names, he loved every little thing about her. “I love you, you know?” She nodded as he bent to kiss the tip of her nose. “I’m glad you’re not freaking out anymore.”

“When you were out there I watched you and thought that we can’t possibly die here. You’re too freaking adorable with your ridiculously small shovel clearing away snow just so I’d calm down. If you love me enough to do that, there’s no way we’re going to get stranded here.”


“Plus, when you were outside my phone worked for like five minutes. I got a voicemail from four days ago.”

“Bobby, Skylar, one of the twins, or AJ?”

She shook her head, “Doctor Heller.”

Concern clouded his face but he tried to stay calm-ish. Calls from the good doc hadn’t always been full of good news in the past year. “Yeah?”

She smiled that smile again and tears welled up in her pretty brown eyes, “We did it.”

“Wait. What? You mean?”

She nodded again and giggled while tears slid down her cheeks, “We’re going to have a baby!”

Visions of the past year flooded his mind. They’d been together for ten years and had a pretty much Fairytale romance but the one thing they didn’t have was kids. The last year had been full of tests, shots and tears. One of big reasons he’d wanted to get her away from life for a week was so that they could just stop worrying. Maybe if they got caught up in each other they would forget about the heartache that came each month with another failed attempt at getting pregnant at least for a little while. It had worked, just not the way he’d expected it to.

He wasn’t one to get all choked up, but when he saw the love of his life telling him that they were finally going to have a baby, he lost it. He dropped to his knees, began kissing his wife’s belly and all he could say was, “Baby, baby, baby…”

She giggled and joined him on the floor. She took his face in her hands and kissed him deeply before pressing her forehead to his, “I love you.”

“I love you too, so much.”

“Just. Can you make me one promise?”

“Absolutely anything.”

“Please don’t ever bring me to a secluded cottage ever again, okay?”

They both began laughing and he pulled her into his arms, “I promise.”

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,600 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 60 trips to carry that many people.

Wordless Wednesday: on my walls

This week’s topic is easy peasy! We’re starting a new thing called Wordless Wednesday once a month where you’ll get photos of our weekly topic. This time around we’re sharing what is on our walls. Since we just moved we’re still in the process of getting things hung up. There are a whole lot of picture frames that haven’t yet made it. But here’s a quick tour of the few things that are in place. :)

Wed Words: Anti Bucket List


Okay, so I’m not going to lie… I had no freaking clue what an Anti Bucket List was. Then when I read the description of “things not to do before you die” I still didn’t get it. I was like, “Isn’t that just a list of things opposite of my dreams? That’s stupid.” LOL but I called on my good friend Mr. Google and decided to see if there was a better explanation since no one else had asked for clarification of this week’s topic (and I didn’t want to be the one who pulled a “I don’t get it…”). :) In my search, I came across this Anti Bucket List post and suddenly it made sense! Yay! It’s not really opposites of my dreams, it’s more like, “You couldn’t pay me to…” which technically we already did last year so now I have to think of a new list. :p

I’m struggling though because I’m kind of a “never say never” kind of girl so I don’t want to jinx myself. I mean, I used to say I’d never go on a cruise but now I’ve been on two and love them… I’m totally singing Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” now, by the way.

Anyway let’s see what I can cook up…

I will never be a hunter. I know that most hunters do it for a good reason, but it’s just not something I can do. The only animal I’ve ever intentionally killed was a bat and it was awful and I’m pretty sure I’m suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder because of it. I eat meat, but I don’t want to be the one who kills it. I sometimes even get weirded out when cooking meat.

I will never like bats. I don’t even like writing, typing or saying the word but I’ve already said it twice in this post. *does heebie jeebie dance* I am 100% absolutely terrified of them. I tried to face that fear last year and it only made things about 10,000 times worse so no… Never. (Note: please don’t tell me your experiences with the flying rodent bastards in the comments or tell me how much you love them. It doesn’t help. It actually makes things worse. It’s kind of like buying a pit bull for someone who is terrified of dogs. Just say no.)

I’ll never ride a motorcycle. I’ve known too many people who have died in motorcycle accidents. I’m not a fan. I did ride one once as a kid, but never again.

I’ll never like raw tomatoes. They’re slimy and nasty. I’ve retried them many times. No bueno.

I’ll never go on a haunted anything. I believe in spirits and ghosts and stuff but I don’t want to seek them out. I don’t like ghost stories, I don’t see movies about hauntings, and I’m never going to be like, “Let’s go stay in that haunted hotel, it’ll be awesome!”

I’ll never go scuba diving. I’m a Cancer and love the water but I also fear it. Most specifically water that is deeper than I am tall and wider than I can see. As cool as I think scuba diving could be, I know I could never do it because just the thought of the hugeness of the ocean freaks me out.

So there you have it… My anti bucket list.

Let’s see what the girls won’t do. :p

Wednesday Words: Favorite Superheroes

I know, I’m late… But, life. :)

So this week we’re talking about favorite superheroes. That shouldn’t be so hard, right? plus I get to post pictures! :)

Lara Croft… I suppose she’s not a superhero but I spent many many hours playing Tomb Raider and when my girlfriend Angie was cast as Lara in the movies? Yay!


Lara Croft


I was born in the 70’s… Wonder Woman was my girl! I had the Underoos and everything. :)


Wonder Woman

Sweet Christopher Reeve! My first Superman. He was socially awkward, funny, and adorable!

Christopher - Superman

Christopher – Superman










Oh, Henry! I wasn’t a big fan of the Superman reboot with Brandon Whatshisface. He was okay but didn’t scream Superman. This man here though, he WAS Superman. The blue eyes, the smile, the ridiculous body, the angst… He was amazing and I loved him as Kent.


Who doesn’t love Iron Man? I adore how his character has grown through the series too.  I heard a lot of people bitch about how in the last Iron Man that Stark was too moody and soft. I on the other hand loved it because hello… He’s still just a human!

Iron Man

Iron Man






Black Widow… Yeah, her character in the movies is kind of lame but she’s hot and can kick ass.


black widow











Loki… Okay yeah, not exactly a hero either.  But, Tom!










Spider-Man – I really loved Tobey McGuire as Spidey but then Andrew Garfield showed up and blew Tobey out of the water. Love him!



And here’s what the other Wednesday girls had to say about heroes!
