I should take a spa day more often

Hi - I'm guest posting for The Cranky One today; giving her a little spa day, as it were.

I can't really write anything reminiscent of what you usually get in here. I'm not as close to achieving hottie status as she is, I don't have a teenage son, and I don't have her patience and fortitude.

I try to make up for my shortcomings with mad spelling skills. : )

Anyway, you'd think she and I have nothing in common, but we do.

We're both cranky, for one thing.

We're both starving bloggers.

We're both Star Wars geeks.

And on top of all that, we (and Nurse Kellye) happen to be cute as hell.

But mostly, we write our asses off. (If we could, literally, do that, we'd be rocking size zero and the celebrities would be tuning into E! to see what our writing secrets are.)

You could take away our computers, and we'd cry and scream, then we'd find a manual typewriter. Take that away, we'd find a pen. Take that away, and we'd find a pin and scratch words into the walls. Take that away ...

... and we'd still be writing, in our heads.

I love knowing Cranky. It makes me feel more, I don't know, normal, that there are other people who get as passionate about having their say as I do.

I just hope I've done this spot justice in her brief absence, and hope she got some well-deserved rest. She'll be back to regale you with her real life and times shortly.

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.
