Languages


I'm a big proponent of language acquisition, even if it's only a little bit. It broadens your horizons, and you can learn so much about so many people if you just take the time to learn a little bit about the language they speak.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Dear Sissybug Book Review


Dear Sissybug,

Thank you.

After attempting to read what should probably be considered the worst book ever written in the history of ever, I was so pleased when you told me your choice for November would be The Ocean at the End of the Lane by the oh-so-whimsical Neil Gaiman. Lord knows we both needed a reminder that publishers will actually print well-written literature nowadays. And Neil Gaiman definitely fills that void quite adeptly.

Hercule Poirot


The character would most likely not have been a hit if introduced nowadays, but Hercule Poirot is a shining example of great crime writing by the lovely Agatha Christie. He's kind of like the French Sherlock Holmes without the sociopathy (even though he is quite particular about some things).

Love him and his moustache.

Great Danes


I must first preface this image by explaining that I am a large proponent of adoption over buying from breeders.

That being said, if I was a breed-buying person, I would go Great Dane. All the way. They're like slightly smaller horses that you can cuddle with.

I still maintain, however, that Cuppycake the pitbull mix is, by far and large, the best dog in the entire world, and I wouldn't exchange her for anything. She's perfection.

Playing Catch-Up



Expect a lot of post over the next couple of days. I have a full week's worth of posts to get posted, and I'm going to pump out as much as I can today, this evening, and tomorrow.

Wish me luck!

Peace.
Stef.

Lobster Bisque

Must. Resist. Temptation. To make. 13-year-old boy joke. About. 69...


My #1 favorite food, followed closely by only one other food that I will most likely post later on at some point. I could eat it by the tub-fulls.

Speaking of which, I'm off of work on Friday and shall be buying myself some lobster bisque from the ever-so-scrumptious City Limits. I'm so excited that I can barely contain my happiness.

#100HappyDays: Day 68
Korean Reality Television



Seriously.

American reality TV is filled with terrible people behaving badly and does a bang-up job of making me hate the human race.

Korean reality TV, though? It's people getting along and doing fun things with each other. Really. It might sound boring, but it's so different than what I'm used to seeing that I love it. I could sit and watch an episode of Roommate or Running Man (pictured above) and relish in the fact that these people will solve their disagreements through rational, adult ways, going on to remain friends instead of the screaming, fighting, and so on that we see in American TV.

It's so much better. Trust me.

Samurai



It may seem odd, but there's something fascinating about Samurai culture. The calmness and dignity behind it is just mesmerizing. I'm sure part of it is due to the fact that it's so foreign from the American, shoot-first-ask-questions-later mindset, but I have always wanted to study swordsmanship simply based off of research I have done about Samurai. As stated, utterly fascinating.

Firefly / Serenity


This one will forever and always be one of my favorite shows of all time. The movie ripped my heart out (Wash is / was my fav), and, while I still recognize it as fantastic, I only watch it sparingly. The TV show is my main source of fandom.

Plus, you can never go wrong with Nathan Fillion. The man is brilliant.

Let's Go Fly a Kite



There's nothing that takes me back to my childhood quite like flying a kite.

It's a strange activity: tie a piece of string to a diamond-shaped paper affixed to a cross made out of lightweight wood, run when the wind is blowing while pulling on the string, and boom. Fun, high-flying times will be had.

There's something almost freeing and magical about it, running across an open field or park with the hope that the elusive wind will hit the kite just right, lifting it effortlessly into the upper parts of the atmosphere (at least, that's how high I tell myself it goes).

Why don't we fly kites as adults? I miss it.

National Novel Writing Month



For those of you who are knee-deep in the online writing community, chances are you've heard of the wondrous annual adventure that is NaNoWriMo. If you're new (or possibly completely uninterested), then allow me to regale you.

NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, is an annual write-til-you-drop race with the goal of crossing the finish line prior to midnight on November 30th at 50,000 (or more) words written of a manuscript.

That's it. There aren't any confusing rules, and it's simply a way to motivate yourself to write, edit-free for a full month and knock out that novel you've been thinking about for months but haven't made the time to write.

I look forward to it every year and I'm excited to read through what I've written after November comes and goes.

Do you take part in NaNo?
