February 11th, 2013 Posted 7:00 am

One of my goals for the 101 in 1001 Project is to complete the 365 Project – to snap one photo a day for 365 days. I’d started this last year and did very well, but fell off track when Eric took the camera to Burning Man in August.

Here we are. Starting again.

008/365 – Sunday, 3 February 2013
The game face.

009/365 – Monday, 4 February 2013
Imbolg offerings. Brigid likes chocolate, right?

010/365 – Tuesday, 5 February 2013
Freebies!!

011/365 – Wednesday, 6 February 2013
We shall be organized.

012/365 – Thursday, 7 February 2013
Before.

013/365 – Friday, 08 February 2013
After.

014/365 – Saturday, 09 February 2013

My Top Ten… TV Characters

No Comments »

February 10th, 2013 Posted 12:56 pm

I noticed the other day that I often refer to something as “one of my favorite xxx ever.” At a certain point, I realized I must have 100 favorite movies and even more favorite songs. So, I challenged myself to make definitive lists of my top tens as an exercise in creative thinking.


Daryl – redneck eye candy

 

Tonight we welcome back “Walking Dead” after a TOO LONG mid-season break. Yeah… I cannot be the only woman out here who things any separation greater than a week from zombie-killer Daryl Dixon is cruel punishment…

Bit of advice to Carol: Grab him and kiss him.  We need someone to live vicariously through.

With a nod to Daryl [who hasn’t quite made the list yet], I offer you… My Top 10 TV Characters:

  1. The Doctor – Doctor Who
    I have my favorite incarnation; Ravynn has hers. You cannot be a fan without having strong ideas about this.  At the same time,I  kinda love them all.
  2. Hawkeye Pierce – M*A*S*H
    The anti-hero. I suspect this is where it started.  If you haven’t seen M*A*S*H, you really should.
  3. Piper – Charmed
    Functioned as the oldest of three sisters [after we lost Pru]. Super powerful witch. Got the white lighter… What’s not to love?
  4. Leonard Hofstadter – Big Bang Theory
    Leonard is amazing. I won’t pretend much of that is due to his role in his BBT group, but… cute, cool and nerdy.  Squee.
  5. Eric Northman – True Blood
    Yes, I wept a little when he cut his hair.
  6. Gregory House – House, MD
    More anti-hero… And, you know, he needs to be fixed.
  7. Dylan McKay – 90210
    I will always be a 19-year old girl.
  8. McMurphy – China Beach
    Bad ass army nurse with a squishy little heart inside.
  9. John Winchester – Supernatural
    The man is pretty.  And broken. And responsible for Sam & Dean.
  10. Shane – The L Word
    She’s the character that got me hooked on the show. Broken. Anti-hero… you see the theme, right??

No. These are not in any real order.

Yes. They change almost daily.

Gothling of the Month – February 2013

No Comments »

February 1st, 2013 Posted 5:30 am

February 2013.

Allow us to introduce you to our February 2013 Gothling of the Month.

Circe is the most recent addition to our family. This Boston princess came to us from the Madison County Humane Society in July 2012. Although listed as a stray, she gives no indication that she’s not used to life with a family.

She arrived house-trained, most able [although often unwilling] to sit on command, tolerant of a leash, and with a strong need to snuggle.

She doesn’t even mind playing dress up with the girls.

Back on track. Scheduled and everything 🙂

WEEK 8, YEAR 1


Hot, but pretty.  June 30, 2012. 

49/365

 


Sunday, Jordan and I went over to Edgewood Country Club for their Walking Man/Fourth of July celebration. He was very patient while I took his picture. Love the hair!

50/365


Too hot for anything. Really temps nearing 102 with no real rain for days 🙁 Staying inside watching Heroes.

51/365


STILL too hot. Sitting in front of a fan, feet up, sipping iced tea, and working on upcoming blog posts. Not so much beating the heat, but functioning in spite of it.

52/365


Our friend Tim has a sick little girl who is facing some special challenges today. We lit a candle for her.

53/365


Dear Leinenkugel family. I love you.

54/365


The girls are home!!  And are very happy about it. Almost as happy as mama.

My Top 10… Movies

No Comments »

July 10th, 2012 Posted 6:31 am

I noticed the other day that I often refer to something as “one of my favorite xxx ever.” At a certain point, I realized I must have 100 favorite movies and even more favorite songs. So, I challenged myself to make definitive lists of my top tens as an exercise in creative thinking.

Today, I offer you My Top Ten Movies.

  1. Reservoir Dogs
    What’s not to love? Tarantino. Keitel. Either one of those is enough, but both together… Awesome! Best. Movie. Ever.
  2. Full Metal Jacket
    The movie most people remember from my senior year in high school is Top Gun, which was a fine movie, but this one… I’ve seen it so many times and it just keeps getting better.
  3. Natural Born Killers
    A true chick flick.  Mickey Knox, I think I love you.
  4. Apocalypse Now
    Craaaaaaaaaaazy Marlon Brando.  The man is genius.
  5. Moulin Rouge
    So. I hate musicals.  Hate them. Can’t make it through the first song – with rare exception.  This is an exception.
  6. Practical Magic
    I want this life.
  7. Romance
    I love everything from Catherine Breillat. Everything.  But I love this most.
  8. Picnic
    I saw this movie the first time with my Daddy. I think he was more than a little concerned about my fascination with the anti-hero…  He should have been.
  9. Peter Pan
    Love the book. Love the story. Love this adaptation.
  10. ?? [A movie I don’t know the name of]
    Yeah… So also with my father, I watched a movie about a civil war unit.  At least part of it focussed on the drummer boys who were following the soldiers. I watched it as a child, so pre-1983 probably.

No. These are not in any real order.

Yes. They change almost daily.

My Top 10… Songs

No Comments »

June 5th, 2012 Posted 6:17 pm

I noticed the other day that I often refer to something as “one of my favorite xxx ever.”  At a certain point, I realized I must have 100 favorite movies and even more favorite songs.  So, I challenged myself to make definitive lists of my top tens as an exercise in creative thinking.

Today, I offer you My Top Ten Songs.

  1. Horses – Patti Smith
    I love this song because of the scene from Millenium seen in this video. The song speaks power to me.
  2. And She Was – Talking Heads
    The line, “And she was walking through the back yard,” gets to me. The fact that I hear it in David Byrne’s voice is an incredible bonus.
  3. Me and Bobby McGee – Janis Joplin
    I think I fell a little in love with Bobby McGee the first time I heard this song.
  4. Tin Man – Schaffer the Darklord
    What’s not to love?
  5. Captain Jack – Billy Joel
    This isn’t a song I should like, really, but it captures so much emotion.
  6. To Sir with Love – LuLu
    My sister considered this song for the father/daughter dance at her wedding. I’m not sure any of us have gotten through it yet without crying.
  7. What’s Your Mama’s Name – Tanya Tucker
    Ditto, this song. I love my children above all else so this song tears me apart a little.
  8. Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen
    This first time I heard this song, it captured my heart. It was played at my father’s funeral, so I don’t listen to it much anymore, but I feel every note of it.
  9. They Don’t Know – Tracy Ullman
    Paul McCartney!! Such a sweet love song.
  10. Joey – Concrete Blonde
    Haunting. That is all.

No. These are not in any real order.

Yes. They change almost daily.
