Mystery Dinner

As an anniversary gift, my wonder and amazing husband got us tickets for a Mystery Dinner! He got the tickets through The Dinner Detective, and I have to admit, it was pretty freaking awesome! The show we had allowed us to dress up since it was close to Halloween. So, he went as a Jedi and I went as a bumble bee. There were others there that dressed up also, but a few just came in dinner casual wear (which was fine too). The dinner was a four-course meal, and naturally the show. There’s no real stage so the actors … Continue reading Mystery Dinner

Painting with a Twist (#11)

It was a big thing to do a paint night with alcohol. It’s still a big thing, but the phase has sort of passed. I still wanted to do it though. We did it with Paint Nite and we had fun! I know that each painting night has their own rules. With Paint Nite, we didn’t have a stencil already on our canvas. They had the paint,  brushes, and aprons all ready for us when we got there. Since it was hosted at a bar, you could arrive early and get food or you can just get drinks, whichever you … Continue reading Painting with a Twist (#11)

Strangers, Allies and Foes

When I took my screen writing class, and as I go through a novel writing class, I realize that I have to create a world for my characters to live in. This world can be any world that I want it to be. Since I’m not a huge fan of science fiction (but I have read it), I usually choose my world to be identical to my world – Earth, I guess you would say. And while writing my world, I have learned that there are mainly three types of people: Strangers, allies, and foes. Strangers exist in the world. They … Continue reading Strangers, Allies and Foes

Watch Your Language!

I work with a few people who have English as their second language. And I never really thought about how I spoke until I had to have conversations with them on a daily basis. Believe it or not, the manner in which we speak is incredibly complex. When talking to a friend, I basically talk in incomplete sentences. A lot of what I say is implied and my tone directs the whole topic. Next time you’re out in public, just give a quick listen to a nearby conversation and you will realize why English is so hard to learn. English … Continue reading Watch Your Language!

Read: Hitchhiker’s Guide (#17)

Once upon a time, I started to read Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and then something happened and I never finished it. Well, on the list it went! I finished the book in maybe 3 days? It’s not a very long book and it’s definitely an easy read. Plus, it’s hilarious and fun to read. I’m actually almost finished with the second book in the series (Restaurant at the End of the Universe). This is a book that I recommend everyone read. Like I said, it’s funny and it’s a quick read so you can still have time to read … Continue reading Read: Hitchhiker’s Guide (#17)

First, You Decide…

Lately I have been feeling a little…. off. It’s really hard to explain the feeling I’m having. Disappointment? Sadness? I’m not too sure, but I’m going to try. A few years ago, I was in a different place in my life (as I’m sure we all were). But I was a different person too. And believe it or not, I really liked that person. She was disciplined, active, informed, and quite happy with her life. Now, I think back to that girl and wonder what happened to her? I feel like now, I’m so out of touch with everything, lazy, … Continue reading First, You Decide…

Make a Picture Frame Tray (#21)

This tray has taken me YEARS! Want to know why? Because I’m awful at measuring and even worse with a drill. I got this idea from Pinterest, which is basically where everything I do comes from. It started out as something simple. Find a picture frame. Drill some holes in the frame to attach handles. Decorate and/or spray paint tray and enjoy. I’ve gone through about 5 frames. I know, I know. You’re thinking, “How can you screw that up?!” Trust me, it’s easier said than done. The frame that I wanted was a tad bit more complex than I … Continue reading Make a Picture Frame Tray (#21)

Go to Papa Gallo (#7)

I have to get my postings back on track! So in an effort, I’m going to catch up on some things that have been pushed to the side. Papa Gallo is a small restaurant that is about, I don’t know… 4 miles from my apartment? I’m not really good with distances. I could definitely walk there if I could without really passing out… so, I’m guessing it’s somewhat close. Anyway, they are only open for breakfast and lunch. I’ve always seen it, but obviously, never been to it, so it made my list. Now it’s a smaller restaurant so there are … Continue reading Go to Papa Gallo (#7)

Technology is Our World

We live in a technologically saturated society. People need to come to understand the reality of this. I do not understand, how there are people who have jobs in this day and age, and have absolutely NO IDEA on how to open a program, save a document, or send an email. Now, I’m not -by any means- an expert at Microsoft Word or Excel. But I can get myself around pretty well. Enough so that I can do most, if not all, of the demands needed on the job. I have come across people who are older, and not only … Continue reading Technology is Our World

Watch: Midnight Cowboy (#25)

Midnight Cowboy made the list, because when I was in my screenwriting class, it was mentioned a few times. I also heard about it through other means. First, I should mention that this is an X Rated film. It is one of the first actually. The movie was then switched to an R Rating, and went on to win Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Writing. So maybe that screenwriting course is going to come in handy some day 🙂 For me, this movie was a little bit hard to understand. There are some flashbacks that occur that you sort … Continue reading Watch: Midnight Cowboy (#25)
