Thursday Thirteen… Halloween Edition

 

(since I always post it on Wednesday…)

  1. Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.*
  2. Signs of a werewolf are a unibrow, hair palms, tattoos, and a long middle finger.*
  3. In 1962, the Count Dracula Society was founded.*
  4. Many people still believe that gargoyles were created by medieval architects and stone carvers to ward off evil spirits.*
  5. Turnips and beets served as the original jack-o-lanterns.♦
  6. Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death.*
  7. Jack o lanterns originated in Ireland where people placed candles in hollowed out turnips to keep away spirits and ghosts on the Samhain holiday.♦
  8. If you see a spider on Halloween, it is the spirit of a loved on watching over you.*
  9. ‘Halloween” (movie) was made in only 21 days in 1978 on a very limited budget.*
  10. Halloween is on October 31st, the last day of the Celtic calendar. It was originally a pagan holiday, honoring the dead. Holloween was referred to as All Hallows Eve and dates back to over 2000 years ago.*
  11. Ringing a bell scares evil spirits away.†
  12. If you see a spider on this night, it could be the spirit of a dead loved one who is watching you.†
  13. To meet a witch, put your clothes on inside out and walk backwards on Halloween night.†

Okay…was it you?

Help!

On one of my TT hops a few months ago, somebody had a list of 13 things on my nightstand.

One of them was this nifty looking valet type thing that the blogger used to put her laptop on.  I want one but I totally forgot about it at the time and now that I decided I have to have one, I can’t remember where the blogger posted it came from.

Was it you?  If it is… help!

Thursday Thirteen

13 Reasons I’m Getting Ready to Have Several Glasses of Wine

  1. Numero Uno… it’s Spiced Apple Wine, a seasonal thing from a local winery that is like seriously yummy.

  2. It’s been a fricking long week. And it’s only Wednesday.  Well, for another hour or so.

  3. The kids are quiet and in bed and it’s one of the few times I can have a glass without the bratlet deciding she needs to see what’s in mama’s pretty glass.  Ever tried to keep a wine glass away from a baby?  The wine tends to splash-and babies move fast.

  4. I have a serious headache from the past 24 hours and I figure a glass of wine is better than banging my head against the desk.

  5. I just finished a book… so I get to celebrate.

  6. I’m buckling down to start my main writing project for the next two months starting tomorrow.  Must get as much done as possible before the holidays so I can enjoy them with the kids.  So I need the glass of wine.

  7. I’ve spent the past… hmmmm… six weeks?  Maybe? working at my old day job and I’ve decided doing that, with three kids, and a husband who is gone from 4pm to 6 am Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday…and sometimes on Sundays is much harder than it was when he worked 5a – 5p on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and we only had the two kids.  Exhausted…me?

  8. I bought some more wine from a winery down in the Smoky Mountains and I can’t really open up one of those new bottles until I empty the one that’s in the fridge.

  9. It tastes really yummy with chocolate.  After the past day, I need chocolate almost as much as the glass of wine.

  10. We also got that new nurse trained.  She’s more or less officially on her own, which means my days are mine own again… another cause to celebrate.  I work Saturday morning and then I’m off the hook.  Good reason there to celebrate to.

  11. A glass of wine, the fireplace on, and the DH sitting with me.  Hey, that sounds like the best reason of all.

  12. I want it… so I’m taking it.

  13. All of the above.

13 Reasons I Didn't Sleep Tuesday Night

 

  1. I keep hearing voices.

  2. I have four different voices rambling on inside my head.

  3. No, I’m not crazy, I’m a writer and I’m nearing the “DARK MOMENT” part of my current WIP.

  4. Ever tried to sleep with dialogue running through your mind?

  5. Stupid characters obviously don’t understand the value of sleep.

  6. That’s okay. I’ll shut them up with a couple of Tylenol PM.

  7. I have to help out at the MD’s office tomorrow and I am not pulling an all nighter just to work on their book.

  8. I’ll finish it up Thursday.  I plan on writing all day on Thursday.  Can’t you all talk to me then?

  9. Great… the baby bratlet just woke up… sigh.  Maybe I’ll be pulling the all-nighter after all.

  10. *voices* again.  I am not turning on the laptop.  For crying out loud, I wrote a good fifteen pages of your story today!

  11. You know… your book isn’t due out into the editor for a few weeks yet.  You don’t have to get written right now.

  12. That’s it. I’m going to write your character into a pink tutu and a feather head dress. Might not be too bad, except-you being the hero and all, I don’t think pink and feathers are your thing.

  13. Ahhhhh…. silence.   The pink tutu and feathers threat shut him up.  Temporarily. Now to go deal with the baby bratlet.  Somehow, I don’t think pink tutus and feathers are going to work on her.

13 Reasons Why I Love House

 250px-house_-_gregory_house.jpg

13 Reasons Why I Love House

  1. He’s such an unapologetic ass.  I have to admire that.
  2. He acts like he’s more of a jerk than he really is.
  3. From time to time, you get a glimpse of a decent man underneath.
  4. He doesn’t believe in BS.
  5. He doesn’t bother with subtley.
  6. He doesn’t bother with diplomacy… are you seeing a theme here?
  7. He doesn’t discriminate~doesn’t matter if you’re rich, poor, white, black, green.  He treats everybody like dirt.  ;o)
  8. He doesn’t quit.  Doesn’t matter if the patient is hovering right on death’s door, or already walking thru.  He doesn’t quit.
  9. He makes no apologies for how he is.
  10. He makes it clear you can either take him how he is… or not at all.
  11. He’s flawed.  He knows it.  He doesn’t try to hide said flaws.
  12. Although he hides it, he cares about his friends.
  13. He’s not a glory hound.  Granted, he wants to solve every disease put before him, but it’s for his own curiosity.  Not the need for glory.
