So another Monday comes around and I am left weeping at what might have been. My Arizona Cardinals
managed to find a way to lose once again, and this time against the hated, and unusually pathetic, Seattle Seahawks
. I know that any time you play against a rival on their home turf there is a chance that you may lose, but I couldn't imagine the Cardinals not winning this one. While I can't put the blame squarely on anyone's shoulders I can't help but look at the two field goals the normally reliable Jay Feely
missed. I'm not saying it has anything to do with his being a conservative, but did the ball miss just a bit to the right?*
Otherwise the weekend was loaded with cleaning and cooking and not much writing. Ever since I finished the first draft of Alone I have struggled to put words to paper and the editing process has been dreadful for me. I'm working on it, but I need to find some motivation. I will work through all of this, but damn its hard.
On a somewhat different note, please check out the awesome post by AJ Beamish
on my social commentary/political blog. It's important to learn something new every day. Make THIS
Take care and I hope you have a great week!
"Rasine, eh? Nice name," Felix said as he caught up with Bernard. "How are you going to get her back to Roscoe? You can't exactly carry her over your shoulder the whole way back. It might be uncivilized out there, but a man carrying a woman over his shoulder is still unusual enough to garner some attention."
"I figure we'll just steal a horse and take the back way," said Bernard. "No sense making it easy to follow us if someone is so inclined." He shifted the girl on his shoulder, making it easier for him to draw his gun if it became necessary. Continue reading

Okay, let me start this post by saying I am a bit slap happy today. My wife has been sick for three days and I've spent a couple of afternoons with doctors and dentists. I'm going through a cycle where I can't seem to sleep at night and during the day I can't stay awake. The whole thing is starting to get old.
This week it has rained just about every day. I love the rain and the cool grey days of fall. They play havoc with our soccer schedule since the county and city won't let us use the fields if they are too wet. Consequently there has been no soccer this week and odds are we won't have games this weekend either. What a change from Oregon. In the entire time I coached there we only had one game even delayed and that was because it was hailing on us. We played through rain and mud and the kids loved it. I think it robs the kids, but I've been a bit grateful this week given everything else I've had going on.
Let me just say this: I love the changes to the WordPress App for Android. They added a feature I've been silently wishing for! They added a "Read" button that gives you a scrollable list of the posts for blogs you follow. As if this were not enough, you can also change it so that you can scroll through posts you "Like" or through various topics. Squee! Expect to see more traffic, Likes and comments from me. I live a mobile life and my phone is the best link I have between reality and the digital world.
On a similar note, all of you people need to stop bitching about Facebook. Its different. You have to learn how to use it again. Get over it and stop clogging my news feed with bitching. Oh, and if you would be so kind, please hop onto my Author's page and give me a like would you? Click HERE
Recently I was turned on to Yahoo! Radio by my friend Brooke. I checked out various channels and found some favorites. My current favorite is the Goth channel. It's really kind of funny because a bunch of the music they play there I wouldn't really consider Goth, but I enjoy it so who cares right? One of the songs they played the other day was a cover of Paint It Black
by the Rolling Stones
. Now I have always loved the song, but I'm not really a fan of the Stones, so I've quested for cover versions of the song that I like. The one played on the Goth channel was by a band call Inkubus Sukkubus
. So I borrowed a copy of their Vampyre Erotica CD and I'm hooked. They describe themselves as Pagan Gothic Rock and they've been at it for more than twenty years. So they were into the Goth scene back before Vampires Sparkled.
I really could use a little break, but there is no rest for the wicked.
