Well after spending half the day playing Telephone tag with the NDHP, I finally have my brothers name cleared up. And there is a warrent out for Mike's arrest for giving false information to a cop. He has truly earned his nickname RB. I'm sure he'll find a way to blame it all on me, but I don't care. Add that to the charges he is already going down for, he should be out of our way for a long time. He actually thinks Warren will be living with him someday.....Only if the judge is a major crackhead, in desperate need of a fix, and Mike shows up to court bearing gifts.

So why do I still feel all stressy, and cranky? Well aside from the hormonal surge making its monthly rush thru my system courtesy of my x-chromosone. On the brightside, at least this way I know I won't have to deal with it at Valley Con (16 days and counting.... Now if only I knew where my old worn copy of Making of STTMP is.. I'd love to see his face when (and if) I ask him to sign it. It would have to be priceless. Since I am still kicking myself for missing Nichelle Nichols, which was almost 15 years ago, this will semi make up for it. I even bought three rolls of film last night. I plan to take lots of pictures. I will try to post many of them here. However since some will involve other people, specifially Other diarists some pics may not make it online. But rest assured you will get to see me in full undead makeup.

Last night after work, I took Warren shopping for coat, hat and other winter paraphenalia. (He has developed a very strange attachment to a furry lined hat...ala the Marge hat in Fargo). I also picked up a ton of candy. (And warned Warren about a 1000 times that he and the "munch bunch" (his buddies) are to stay out of it). And the perfect foundation for my costume. It is the palest foundation I have seen. It was some cheapo, no name brand so I got it for 2 bucks. But when I wear it, it gives me that perfect I havent' seen the sun in 100 years complextion. Now to get my hair nice and dark and find the perfect shirt to go with my ultra ratty jeans.

On a funnier note I saw an ad in one of those flyers for what has to be one of the stupidest and yet smartest (in an evil sort of way) promotions. Apparently one of the stores here in town is giving free pizza certificates with the purchase of Prilosec now that it is OTC. This got me thinking, and we all know how dangerous it can be when my hamster gets hyper at the wheel so to speak. This has many possibilites. What a way to make sure your customers need your product and come back, than to give them a free gift of what made them need you in the first place. Think about it, Chiropracters could get in league with the owner of a bumpercar ride, dentists can send home a free case of pop and a bag of sugar. Prescriptions for cholesterol lowering drugs can come with a free big Mac, fries and a shake. Every box of Claritan can come with a gift certificate for a free bogquet of flowers. Alka Seltzer = free super burrito with extra onions and peppers. Even better children's vitamins can come with a free bag of candy (on second thought scratch that, most kids vits are already candy enough). I think I've hit on the newest marketing craze of the future. Get people sick on purpose so you can make more money getting them well. On second thought, medical bills do that already.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
