I drank the #Shadowhunters Kool-Aid…

From Helios to Hollywood

I have to start this post out with the minor caveat that I have never read the Mortal Instruments books or any of its linked series. I have tried to start City of Bones at least five times (I own the series in audio, print, and Kindle book; I blew the money in hopes that I’d get into it more if I tried it in a different format) and it just turns into a great big snoozefest. So, I gave up on it a while ago.  I think it’s her age (I don’t generally read YA), the story just doesn’t grab me.*

A few years ago, I saw the movie and loved it.  I mean, I wasn’t crazy about all of the casting, but the story itself was pretty solid.  I thought Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower were a good match together, but not knowing the series, leaving off…

The great, big #Supernatural Rewatch #SPNFamily #SPN @cw_spn

I started watching Supernatural a few years back.  At the time, I didn’t know many people who were into the show.  Then I admitted to liking it online and found out that the #SPNFamily is staggering.  It doesn’t matter the social media platform, it’s easy to find someone who is as big a fan as you are.

Even more fun is corrupting the innocence of others.  *insert evil grin here*

Which is what led to five little words ruining my life all over again…

#2016, Tomorrow’s Trip to Las Vegas for @RockNReadVegas, @BreakingBad_AMC, and the #GoodJuju Jar.

Good afternoon, you sexy bibliophiles!  Just throwing out some quick updates before I disappear for the next few days.  Of course, you’ll be able to find me all over my social media as well, so dont miss the convention updates on my Instagram and Periscope (both @puretextuality), and I’m hoping to get a mid-trip blog post in as well, but I dont know if I’m going to have time.  🙂

Sweet mother of hell, I had a lot more to say than I had planned.

Greetings, humans!  How is everyone on this fabulous Monday evening?  The sun was shining today (not here, but I’m sure it is somewhere), the birds were singing (again, not here, but somewhere) and my coffee was absolute perfection (that last bit is actually very true….mmmmmmmmmmmmm).  In truth, around here, it was rainy and unseasonably warm.  Our average temperature for the month of December is about 20 degrees Fahrenheit.  Instead, when I started typing this post, we were rockin’ out at 44 degrees on December 14th in New Hampshire, USA.  That’s some Twilight Zone shit.

Right now, I’m on the final stretch of my countdown to my next trip to Vegas.  At this point, I’m usually miserable and freezing and wishing my date to move out to Arizona was here NOW.  My yard is usually buried under large mounds of frozen white shit and I can be found climbing the walls of my house or crying for no reason.  I’m not a fan of winter.  Or being cold.  lol  Any other year, I’d be pretty bitchy about the fact that there is still another month to go before my flight takes off, but not this time!  This time, the jet stream chose to do this cute little wiggle thing and shift it’s normal path.  As a result, we’re half way through December and it feels like mid-October temperatures.

Our high today was 49 degrees, so big ups to Mother Nature and her desire to give this little sun worshipper a break for once.  It’s nice to be able to get ready for this trip without the traditional daily screaming of obscenities about how much I can’t stand living here because of the winter months.  I was still wearing flip flops a week ago!  Of course, when someone made a comment about my flip flops, I remembered that I need a new pair for Vegas, and then proceeded to start bugging out about where the hell I’m going to find flip flops in December.  Eh, well.  Maybe I’ll just wait on picking some up until I get to Las Vegas.

Today’s post is going to be a wordy one.  I don’t know why I feel the need to add in that warning.  Anyone who follows my bloggy blog already knows I have a thing for long blog posts.  Lol

Due to some personal stuff, I’ve been awful about blogging regularly, but I’m back on track now.  This blog post is going to kind of bring you up to date on everything all at once.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

Plagiarism and The Shit That Happened on #TheWalkingDead (#SPOILERS #TWD)

This weekend was a little bananas.  Between the plagiarism debacle and the shit that happened on The Walking Dead, my head is still spinning.  To those who have NOT watched last night’s episode of TWD, no worries, I put in a huge banner to let you know in advance before we start spewing spoilers, so you can read this post without anything being spoiled for you.  Don’t you worry!  I’ve got your back!  *winky face*

As for the other thing, the dirty P word, that’s right ladies and gents, we have a proven thief among us.  I hate even typing those words.  Ugh………….  But it is what it is.  Now it’s up to US to choose how we react and handle the situation.
