Wednesday Words: Zodiac

IMG_0143.JPG

Hello again my fair readers!

I can’t believe that it’s time for our weekly post again already. I also can’t believe that I’m working on mine before dark. LOL This week’s topic is “What’s your sign – does it fit?” I’m kind of tempted to just post the above graphic and say, “Yep.” LOL I’m SUCH a typical Cancer there isn’t a whole lot more I can say. When I read a description about what a Cancer is supposed to be like, it’s usually me to a T.

Moody? Yep. Passionate? Yep. Forgives but doesn’t forget? Absolutely. Home body? Yuh huh. Easily hurt? Yep. Struggles letting go? Story of my life. πŸ™‚ Quiet? Definitely. Intuitive? Oh yeah.

My best friend Shawn says that I’m scary because of how intuitive I can be sometimes. I’ll admit, there are times when I feel like my intuition is a little more than intuition… like, I sometimes can just know that someone I love is having a bad day even if they’re states away and I haven’t spoken to them. But most of the time I just pay attention. I’m huge on details, I notice things that other people don’t. I’ll notice by the way someone types a text message that they’re in a shitty mood just because their typical way of responding has changed.

That little doozy right there? I can’t tell you how true it is. It generally takes a lot to get me mad and even more to make me lose my temper. But when I do get mad and do lose my temper, you better watch out. I’m the ultimate Mama Bear and if someone is hurting a person that I love, you better watch out. πŸ™‚

So yeah… that’s me! πŸ™‚

Wednesday Words: James Lipton Edition

I almost forgot to blog this week! It’s already been a long week around here. I had a bat in my bedroom last night and in the process of catching it I hurt my back. Something is pinched and causing all sorts of pain and also my pointer fingers keep going numb. So now I’m in my grandpa’s old room using the Craftmatic bed (it’s not helping much) and I’m barricaded in here so if we have another visitor it can’t get to me. Ugh.

Anywho… This week we get to play like we’re famous actors being interviewed by James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio.

What’s your favorite word?
Love.

What’s your least favorite word?
Hate.

What turns you on?
A good laugh.

What turns you off?
Lying, backstabbing, abusive, assholes who pretend they’re great people but they aren’t. How’s that for specific?

What sound do you love?
Laughter.

What sound do you hate?
The sound that flying rodent bastards make.

What’s your favorite curse word?
Fuck.

What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
Mama.

What profession would you not like to do?
My current one which shall not be named because it gets tracked online when it’s mentioned. LOL

If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
We’ll done, you.

Dog or cat person?
Both, but I love my kitties a whole lot and technically the dogs don’t belong to me and are my fur siblings.

Coffee or tea?
Coffee. Tea tastes like dirty water to me. Although I do like chai tea.

Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Wars. But I grew up watching reruns of Star Trek and I love the new movies. We’re a big Star Wars family though.

Buffy, Angel, or Firefly
I’ve never seen Firefly (yes, I know… The horror!), so that’s out. Buffy and Angel are kind of tied though. They kinda go together, ya know?

Pirate or ninja?
LMAO… Uh, ninja? Yeah, I’ll take the hot ninja from the last Wolverine movie. :p

Morning or night person?
Night, totally. I struggle with insomnia so mornings usually suck.

Procrastinator or get things done early?
Gee, let me give you a hint… I’m typing this at 11:52 pm Tuesday night. πŸ™‚

Introvert or extrovert?
Mostly introvert. I used to be more outgoing but when I get uber stressed (I.e. The last 5.5 years in my job), my anxiety kicks in and I go inward.

What do you like best about writing?
I get to be mostly in control. My characters sometimes like to take over and make huge plot changes, but for the most part I’m in charge and that’s cool since in real life I feel out of control a lot.

What do you like least?
Second guessing my talent, comparing myself to others, feeling like there are so many “rules” to follow that the fun of writing gets sucked out.

That’s all folks! Check out what Kris, Bron, Leigh, and Jess have to say this week at the links below. Also, don’t forget to look at my previous cover reveal post! πŸ˜€

Favorite Things – TV Edition

Ahh, television, how I love it. I haven’t been watching a whole lot of anything lately because when I get stressed out I either watch a whole lot of Disney Junior or I don’t watch anything. I think the last time I turned the tv on in my bedroom was a few weeks ago when my nephew was spending the night. I do love tv though. πŸ™‚

For the record, I’ll just be the first one to admit that unlike most (maybe all) of my fellow Wednesday Words girls I have never seen an episode of Dr. Who, Merlin, or Sherlock. LOL Not that I think I’d dislike them, but yeah… I just haven’t. The thought of Dr. Who overwhelms me because there are so many seasons. I like to do things in order and even though I’ve been told which Dr. to begin with, it might bug me not to start at the very beginning. :p I’ve also never watched Breaking Bad or The Walking Dead although both shows are in my Netflix queue. πŸ™‚

Anywho… these are the totally random favorite-ish shows of mine in no particular order.

I can’t help it, I love this show. It’s freaking adorable and when I need something fluffy to watch that doesn’t involve sad things or reality, the Doc is my girl. πŸ™‚

20140805-232238-84158768.jpg
I just got caught up on the first four episodes of this show and it’s pretty damn good. I’m not a big fan of the whole wormy thing that these vampires use to feed, it’s kind of gross, but it’s a cool show. I’m very curious to see how it plays out.

Oh em gee I love this show! If you haven’t watched it and you have access to Netflix, go watch! There are only two seasons so far and it’s a total of 12 or 13 episodes. It’s such a weird, funny, touching show. Ricky Gervais is absolutely amazing in it. I have laughed, snorted, and cried watching this show. And it’s up for an Emmy!

20140805-232408-84248546.jpg
I’m only part way through the first or second season of this show but wow is it good! If I had time to sit and binge watch I totally would. I just think it’s such a clever idea and I love hearing the inner dialogue when he just doesn’t understand normal human interactions. πŸ™‚

20140805-232616-84376870.jpg
I have last season’s DVD’s sitting on my coffee table right now and I neeeeed to watch them. If you recall my celebrity crushes post, you’ll remember that a certain sexy man named Joe Manganiello was on it and well… he’s on True Blood. πŸ™‚ Yes, I do know the fate of his character this season… damn spoilers. But I love the show. Yeah, it’s not like the books, blah blah woof woof, but it’s still good. In some ways, I think the show has been better than some of the books. Speaking of the books, I still have to read the last one or two of the series. :p

I’m sure there are a billion other shows I could share, but honestly… I should be asleep right now. I have court tomorrow for work and haven’t slept for crap lately so I’m hoping tonight the Ativan will kick in and work it’s magic!

Tell me what your favorite shows are and check out the girls to see what they like to watch! I’m not sure if all the girls are blogging this week because several of them are already at Authors After Dark in North Carolina.
But here are the links for Bron, Jess and Gwen!
