I just read the comments about my "Blue sock" well I didn't find the blue sock or my earrings but something else happened.
My mother has been living with me for a while now and she has a gold and silver butterfly necklace my father gave her that she always gets compliments on. About two months ago it dissappeared and she thought she must have lost it because the clasp was loose and she frettend and frettted over it.
Not more than two days ago the pendant appeared on top of a pair of flip flops on the floor!
She had been wearing them the previous day so there was no way it could have dropped of the counter and been forgotten. She was never a believer before but now I think I have introduced her to the world of faeries!
I know she didn't sit anything shiny out but maybe they took something else that suited their fancy. I'm going to sit a few shiny marbles in the laundry rom and bathroom maybe my stuff will appear too!
Ok here we are on the eve of a day a silly ol nymph was born. Sadly i must put up with the elder faeries who are mean and nasty and say I don't deserve anything and never want to do fun things like buy pricey ice cream cakes or spend the day shopping or want to take trips to Baltimore to see a concert and fireworks :(
So I will have to make some magic alone and by myself since I have no fae locally to have fun with. (I spent so much money on QVC this month I am beginning to feel too influenced by Simi. AAAAAk! (a character from a certain fictional romance series) NO! I want my Lee Sands unicorn necklace! No send it back!!
Oh dear what I do to stay sane, or not. Looks like the new job I was hoping for won't pan out. Hmmm. Maybe I'll try art school in another state, that would be expensive but hip. Now where is my fairy godmother with that magical chest of treasure so I can pay for it all? (Flashback to John Korty's twice upon a time. Oh no not that fairy aaaak. No offense but uh I don't need a Rod Rescue man. But Flora Fauna would hang out with me in Sunny Frivoli yeah!)
Meep. Guess I'll go absorb myself in how to paint watercolor faeries for the next 2 days. Ove-wa my fae friends may the Shwartz be wit you!
I swear their must be faeries or brownies or some creature running amock in my house! I was working on a huge pile of laundry when I returned last week and I dropped a denim blue sock. I was busy so I waited a minute or two to fetch it and I have never found it since! Despite getting on my hands and knees to look. I also lost the pair of earrings I wore to the concert and I need them too because someone asked me to make another pair like them. Bloomin faeries!
So here's to everyone who swears they don't know where this or that went, and then it shows up a week or a month or a year later when you least expect it! We all know who really takes all those things! It's the faeries and the brownies and the littles! And I think I'm infested with them! Aaaak!
I can't believe it is over!
After all the waiting and the butterflies getting in that first security line alone, waiting nervous for the first plane trip and practically floating while I was walking down that ramp I can't believe the weekend is gone! I had not seen the inner harbor in 17 years and it had changed a lot! The Pub I visited for a late lunch had a Celtic Theme and great decorations.
I think I take after my grandmother who loved to travel. Navigating a city alone was crazy (especially when my cab never came one night and I had to take the light rail back then walk four blocks to the hotel in a dress and flats) but the concert was worth it. OMG if i was rich I would go to every FF Distant Worlds concert in the country, it was the best night I have had in years!
The trip home was nerve wracking (I had to switch flights in an airport I hand never been in) but the experience was worth it. A woman popped out of nowhere and grabbed my bags and said "This way! A woman has to do what she has to do!" she set me on the right path and even rode with me on the tram part of the way. I guess it just goes to show that if you are connected to the Source the right people will show up to help you! I never would have made it in time without her!
Oh and when on a plane good faeries... not that you would act like a goblin ... but please don't take someone else's window seat then gobble your chips like a viking, smack your lips and then fold the package up and use the wrapper for a toothpick! Eeeew! (And all that was what he did just before takeoff! He took a nap and wouldnt even put his tray up when asked or put his bag under the seat! Never mind what he did with the M&M's! UGH!) What a gross out. Troll Bogies!
I only took a few pictures but I will share them as soon as I find my USB cord to my camera. The brownies have carted it off somewhere and I cannot find it. Bloomin faeries!
I think I'll go collapse in a heap now ... plop
I swear I have never been so thrilled and so scared of the unknown at the same time!
After all these months of waiting and wondering if I was really going to do this I finally decided that yes I have the nerve and the will to link up with the universe and finally do something big, alone and for myself! Even if it cost me over a month of my meger income!
Gracious I wish I had a group of girlfriends to lean on but I don't. All I have is me and my confidence and courage. I am getting on a plane for the first time in my life and I will be in control! And I am scared patootey less!
So if by chance any of you kind souls are going to be attending the Final Fantasy Symphony at the Meyerhoff this Saturday look for the plump raven in a black dress hehe. Gawd I hope I make it in one piece! I'm feeling knock kneed and nervous just thinking about it!
Oh and I have two book reccomendations for those intrested in my rambling:
Acheron By Sherilyn Kenyon
The Last templar By Raymond Khoury
I know I haven't posted in months but my dial up connection is lousy and I need to get rid of it and get high speed. That's my first priority when I get home; clean out the junk roomand get high speed. Well that and work on my Transformers fanfiction and my novel.
Till the next.
I will survive this trip ... I will survive this trip.... I will survive this trip..... ooowh!
Ahh, here is the map; aproximately 8 hours and twenty six minutes of drive time depending on traffic. Now if I just had Bugbeak or a nice dragon to take me there and back. It's not that I don't drive, I love driving I just haven't done it in a while and well its a bit much to go that far if you haven't driven more than an hour away in years.But my soul is willing to face the danger and go anyway no matter how rediculous it may seem. It's better than being here.
F.E.A.R. False Evidence Appearing Real ~Cayenne Graves
I read today about an elementary school near Washington DC that had rules for kindness placed all over their auditorium and I thought why can't everyone remember these things not just children? Granted the USA and the world is not in the greatest financal shape and being in sales I really do see the very worst in people but instead of being nasty (which solves nothing) people should remember that the things that make a difference personally and publicly come from being nice.
Here are some of the "rules for being nice" that were posted:
1. Treat people the way you would like to be treated
2. play fair
3. respect everyone-other students and all staff
4. everyone can play
5. help others when they need help
6. Don't hurt others on the inside or the outside
The last one is my favorite and all o them can certainly be extended to the adult office or workplace. (Jim Henson would have loved these I think)

Many people seem to lead such carefree lives and have found a way to make a living doing what they love. Which is why I have never believed in the old saying "bloom where you are planted."
I had the unfortutante circumstance of moving to a place I have hardly any hope of moving out of just after high school and I miss all the cultural and fun places I enjoyed living in Virginia. There is nothing where I am now. Barely any industry left no nice libraries, no place to buy herbs or buy organic and worst of all no beauty, just abandoned places of business and t-shirt shops. A co-worker and I were just talking about it tonight. She happens to be taking an online certification course in Herbology (there goes that Harry Potter quote in my head) and was complaining that she had to tell the professor she couldn't buy fresh herbs anywhere.
To get out of the area where I live you have to drive. There are virtually no direct flights out of the airport (so far they have kept NYC on the list but I suspect that is the next to go) and to get anywhere out of this town is an anoying proposition.
I can only dream about visiting Scotland and Ireland.
I would love to come to Baltimore Maryland in August and June (especially for the Distant Worlds concert *sob*) but I have no idea how to get there without spending a fortune in plane fares or hiring a leprecaun limo service with payment as a pot o gold so I am bloging bloging bloging in protest! Augh! Heeelp!
So if you kind people do not see me at any events just know that I appreciate you all and I am there in spirit. If only I could "get out of dodge."
*The previous was just a personal blog. Ignore the hairballs please "hic"
Gee has it been that long? Ok here I go talking to myself again.
Well, Faerie magazine and writing fanfiction and doing research have been what has kept me going over these painful five months.
In October my family was shocked to learn that my mother had a bad heart valve and the anticipation of having to go through the ordeal dampened our spirits during the holidays considerably.
Had I been a tenderfoot the past few weeks would have been a waking nightmare. Ie. seeing a loved one having a panic attack two days before going in for an overnight heart cath and getting admitted for three days instead, and getting up at 4 am to sit in a CICU waiting room for seven hours only to see someone for a few minutes. Iwas about to fall asleep on one of those uncomfortable couches today. We left for a little while and had to turn around and come back to spend a half hour visiting at eight thirty at night. Then I thought, please don't tell me I have to work tomorrow augh! But she is doing well they tell us and she is looking forward to getting over the misery of recovery and going home!
I haven't had the chance to update my little website for everyones enjoyment but I am cooking up some fiction. One of wich is a work in progress on the Lexicon website.
Lastly, a book reccomendation. Just in case anyone here hasn't found it and devoured its contents yet. I picked up this title on a whim. You know, bought it with what I call those little treasures you sometimes forget you have called leftover gift card balances hehe.
"The Lord of The Rings And Philosophy: One Book To Rule Them All"
Um well, till the next.
I haven't forgotten this place. No news is good news in my case. (Coming to this forum is about as charmed as life gets for me)
It is still way too hot here to be the beginning of September and the fall season. Ick. And everyone seems rather cranky and irritated. I just cannot believe the nerve some people have. It seems like everyone who came to my sales counter yesterday was set to harrass me and send the store into bankruptcy wanting to use coupons on every item and slaping a six inch stack of photo book refills on the counter and demanding forty percent off the whole thing. "Oh but it's all the same thing!" Uh yeah but this door did not lead to fairyland and this isn't the Goblin Peddler lady! I wanted to say! But then I would probably get fired. I think I need to start my own business...hmmm.
Anyway, going to dissappear for a while. Bye.
