Friday Fiction Project X : Inspiration

So this week I’ve been working on characters. Names, rough backgrounds, personalities. But I’m not going to share that yet. Sorry. But you know, there’s a lot of other stuff that I’ve worked on already that I thought needed documentation. Inspiration comes from a lot of places for me. For the projects that I have

Setá : Uptown Whittier

For our anniversary TheBoy and I went to Setá, a restaurant in Uptown Whittier. The chef, Hugo Molina, has gotten a fair amount of coverage for his work in the community- educating youths about healthy food and sustainability, as well as his use of organic, local and sustainable ingredients. Not only that, it’s been dubbed

6 years ago today…

Six years ago, I married the love of my life. (This is where using a pseudonym makes for difficult sentiment) To TheBoy- you are my true love, and my soul mate. I can’t say that it’s been easy (marriage and parenthood isn’t), but it’s been fun. You know how to make me laugh, make me

Friday Fiction: Project X

I have something that I’ve been wanting to work on for awhile. A novel, with the first draft to be published serial style online. It’s a pet project, that I’ve been dying to write for almost 9 years now, featuring a storyline that is near and very dear to my heart. Right now I’m working

Me, just me.

In scrolling through a lot of my recent posts, I haven’t talked much about me. Mostly just my opinions on things. I’d like to say that I’m just not that interesting, at least not to myself. You see, in my mind have worlds that are waiting to be written. So I spend any time not

Why mainstream is good, Comic-Con fans

I am not one of them. I admit, I complained about Twilight having a panel at Comic-Con-

Fan Entitlement

Sorry, I didn’t want to rant. But yesterday, Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content posted this tweet: And I agree with him 100%. If there’s something that baffles me, it’s fan entitlement. If you are someone who enjoys a free service, you are entitled to nothing. Especially when it’s artwork. Now, Questionable Content is Jeph’s job.

Tips for Comic-Con

Never been to Comic-Con? While I’m not going this year, I can pass along some tips. Make a Con kit. While most of these things are readily available, it’s good to carry them on you. I always carried two bottles of water, and three energy bars. Helped me while waiting for panels and keeping hydrated

Worst Service Ever.

Last night, TheBoy and I slipped out for dinner. Nothing fancy- it was Sunday night, and rather late at that. The location: Chili’s at the Puente Hills Mall We arrived, a little on the late side (it was around 7:30). The restaurant didn’t seem to be very crowded and we were told we’d be seated

Old Spice, and why I don’t agree with @Alyssa_Milano

I loved the Old Spice campaign. I loved the original ads and think that this week’s web campaign of personal responses to bloggers, Twitter & Facebook users… was brilliant. It’s raised the bar for any company and ad agency mounting a web campaign, and got people actively involved in a way never seen before. Not
