Judge not according to the appearence...John 7:24
"Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible." T.E. Lawrence
Now on deck, a Western set in 1888 called, "A New Life in the Old West
I love a good story! I worked in the book business for 10 years and I loved it...and would do it again in a heartbeat.
I just published my first solo story called, I Promise, They Are Not Alone. I hope you enjoy it. It was a long time coming. First getting the nerve, then writing it, then hovering over the publish button for a few hours. I finally did it.
Actually, I'm showing my stupid side again, the stories mentioned above are just a click away. They are on my Favorite Stories, listed below this profile. You see, my mom always said "Don't put beans up your nose!" I realize now, that I probably should have done as she asked, all those years of putting beans up my nose has damaged my memory!
I am an American who has been living in Germany since 2002...I had one of those internet romance things THAT WORKED...so now here I am with the love of my life, happily married...well married at least LOL!!!
I have chronic pain issues, I am in pain 24/7/365...and reading these stories helps to keep my mind focused on other things.
We have two cats...Elizabeth Mary (Lizzie, Little Bit, But-But and various other sundry nicknames) and a three-legged male named Samuel Adam, or Sammy. We have also taken into our care, a 19 year old calico girl called Leia, but we call her Lay Lay or Granny. She is not well as of late, but she has lived longer than any one thought, we have provided her with a happy home for nearly two years. When the shelter asked us to take care of her, they gave her about six weeks...it's been almost two years now. In early September, Leia went to the Rainbow Bridge, we hope she had a happy last part of her life with us. In mid October, we took in a cat the neighbor had thrown out. So now we have added KC (Kelly Carmen) to our lives. She is a Manx mix and has the same white and smoke gray fur as Sammy. They are all still adjusting to each other... life with the cat children is an adventure.
I am dog person, but no dogs allowed in our buliding (wahhhhhh!) I had my beloved collie named Queen Victoria's Miss Magnolia or Maggie...when I moved to Germany I couldn't bring her and it nearly shattered my heart, but I did the right thing and she went to Memphis Collie Rescue where she got a good and loving home...I got her from a Shelter, when looking for that extra family member PLEASE go to your local shelter and not some random pet shop or puppy mill...END ALL PUPPY MILLS!!!!!
And no, I am not some PETA strong arm...but I am against animal abuse in ANY form including the circus...people can choose if they want to risk their necks...animals can't.
I am NOT a vegetarian either...as a matter of fact I would lie down with the lions and just eat the meat with them...ok guess you know I like rare steaks! LOL Although I would KILL from some yellow crook neck (summer) Squash, apparently not available in Germany (at least none that I have found in 50 Km area) me lovey veggies too!
I am just a kid at heart...and I hope I never loose that...it keeps me young!
I am also a proud smoker...and I fight for smoker's rights...I wish they would work as hard as getting rid of DEMON ALCOHOL as they try to do to us smokers...don't give me that second hand smoke crap if I am standing OUTSIDE enjoying my vice...the amount of crap in the air from industry is FAR worse than my 2 cigaretts. I REFUSE to go out any more, especially pubs...I want to smoke with my coffee as much as you want to drink your VILE alchohol. When you lose a beloved one to a drunk driver maybe you can START to understand how much I LOATHE the crap!
I miss my personal library of nearly 2,000 books, but working 10 years in a book store with a great discount will do that to you...I am slowly rebuilding my favorites. I am in to Tolkien, The Pendergast series (Lincoln/Child), Dan Brown (yeah I know, but they are entertaining), Michener, and I have read the Wilbur Smith Egypt series to the point I can almost tell them by heart. I love Bernard Cornwell great historical writer. I will read nearly anything, of course that is part of what I did for 10 years...you have to know something in order to reccomend it...my eyes would probably explode if I worked at a large chain book store...which also reminds me...PLEASE support your local INDEPENDENT book sellers...they will give you FAR better customer service than a chain store ever will. If I had the the funding that is what I would do...open my OWN book store.
As far as movies go...I really like classics...Some Like it Hot, One Two, Three,. If you need me to weep just put in An Affair to Remember and I will be putty in your hands...honestly I will. I also like Star Wars, Indiana Jones...my ranges fly all over the place. Solomon Kane is my current favorite...that's a REAL hero in my book. I love mostly all the PIXAR flims, but Cars is just so darn cute! I love Dreamworks films as well. I have probably seen every Ivory Merchant flim ever made. When most people talk during a movie they talk about the plot, when I talk during a film it is about the editing, special effects and cinematography (spelling?). I am a HUGE LOTR fan and the movies were good. Harry Potter as well...but I have learned, you have to seperate the books from the movies...as hard as they try books are usually always better.
If you are into cars, lilke I am. (I can help break down engines, change oil, fix fuses, change fan belts, clean air filters, ect...not many other girls I know can do that, but it comes with having a male best friend, that takes the time to teach you all that stuff, so if you break down on the side of the road you can probably fix something enough to get you to safety! It's amazing what you can do with a hairpin, a pair of panty hose and a rubber band!)
Oh, yeah my point here THE best car chase movie EVER made is the 1974 Gone in 60 Seconds. Written by, produced by and staring H.B. Halicki. I WANT an Eleanor so bad I can't stand it. If you don't know who Eleanor is WATCH the movie. Well OK I will tell you! Eleanor is the gold 1973 Ford Mustang Mach I that is the TRUE star of the movie. Halicki wrecked so many of them making the movie, there probably aren't that many left! The Mustang is the ONLY Ford I will tolerate, and I will not accept this new thing that Ford came out with and called the Mustang. THAT is NOT a Mustang. True Mustang's come from the 60's and 70's and not that far into the 70's either. Shelby is the only engine that can run a Stanger to it's full potential. One last thing you have to watch the 1974 version, not that crappy remake with Nicholas Cage.
I was VERY active in community theatre and did that locally back home for 12 years, singing, acting and later more into the tech side, Directing, Lighting and was just getting really good at effects make up just before I left. I want to play Bloody Mary in South Pacific and Mother Superior in Sound of Music before I die. I was a trained opera singer (20 years of voice lessons)...but over the last 8 years, I have not practiced and it is true...if you don't use it you loose it...I can still sing rings around my spouse...ummm anybody probably could LOL!! I play a little piano and recorder (but that is annoying to the neighbors in an apartment buliding)...I can pick my way around a guitar if the song is in very basic chords.
What can I say I am very eclectic and well rounded. I love everything music from Bach to Manowar...not a huge fan of rap or disco. The 1980's was probably one of the greatest decades for really GOOD music...well ok 1969 was too.
I also love Curling, hockey, soccer, rugby. I miss my Chicgao Bears and Cubs! I have found watching Darts very interesting as well. I am also in to all the Equestrian sports.
Needless to say I am a wrestling fan...sadly though Eurosport and Sport 1 only carry SMALL amounts...I only get one 30 minute WWE update per week...I see highlights from Smackdown and Superstars and Vintage Wrestling...I catch what I can online, but I hardly know many of the "new" people. I can say I talked to Jim Ross once on the phone MANY years ago when he was with Mid South Wrestling, trying to arrange fundraising event...that never got to happen sadly...I am not good at that type of thing I guess. I grew up with Georgia Championship Wrestling every Saturday afternoon...usually with my bestfriend and a bowl of mom's homemade chili...until I got so excited once that the bowl of chili ended up all over my bedroom floor...oops...well Tommy Rich and Rick Martel WERE hot...I got excited!!!
I was born on June 14, which in America, is Flag Day. The biggest dissapointment of my life is when at 9 years old my mother finally told me the truth, "No Suse, they don't hang the flags out just because it's your birthday" I cried. LOL
This is my favorite quote. The first time I heard it was on an episode of Rosanne. Such a deep quote comming from such a funny show, but it shows the depth of the character Rosanne played. Read it carefully, and then apply it to your daily life!
"Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible." T.E. Lawrence (Better known as Lawrence of Arabia, yeah he was a real person!) So DARE to dream in the daytime, you just might find some surprises.
