Happy Hallowe’en!

I can’t wait to get into my costume. I decided on . . .

. . . Sarah Palin!

No, really. I found some add-in bangs and just pulled my hair into a twist. My glasses are enough like hers. Now, if I can get that nasal accent just right! “Yay Phillies! Oops . . . that’s Pittsburgh, right?” *GRIN*

Do you think people will notice the diff between MY wardrobe and the one she’s not wearing . . . nah. Or that I’m fat? Nah! It’ll be funny.

If I can find a “Moose” T-shirt, I mean.

I still might haul out the cape and go as Sister Mary Discipline.

Mama is having so much pain (burning in her lungs, digestive tract pain, nausea, leg and back pain, etc.) that we think it’s the new medicine (Advair and an anti-yeast pill that she dissolves under her tongue after the Advair). Hope we don’t have to spend the Trick-or-Treat night at the E. R. with all the people who got into trouble bobbing for apples. She asks for your Good Thinks.

And now, Witchy Women On Film!

If I could look like one of THEM . . . that’d be the ticket.

Apples . . . anyone?

Shalanna: rhymes with "Madonna" and "I wanna," and is not a soundalike with "Hosanna" or "Sha-Na-Na." Aging hippie with long hair, husband, elderly mother, and yappy Pomeranian. I've been writing since I could hold a crayon. I started with fiction, which Mama said was "lying." “Don’t tell stories,” she would admonish, in Southern vernacular. “That's all in your imagination!” When grownups said this, they were not approving. So, shamed, I stopped telling stories for a few years--rather, I stopped letting anyone read them. I'm married to a fellow computer nerd who doesn't really like hearing about writing, but who reads sf/fantasy and understands the creative drive. I'm actually a nonconformist/hippie still wearing bluejeans and drop earrings and the Alice-in-Wonderland hair with headbands and sandals. Favorite flavor is chocolate/orange, favorite color is either Dreamsicle orange (cantaloupe) or bubble-gum pink, favorite musical is either Bye Bye Birdie, Rocky Horror, or The Producers . . . wait, I also love The Music Man. Is this getting way too specific and irrelevant yet? Obvious why I don't sell a ton of flash fiction, isn't it? To define oneself, I always say, it is good to make a list. How about a booklist? Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird Frank and Ernestine Gilbreth, Cheaper by the Dozen C.S.Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (all the Narnia books) J.R.R.Tolkien,The Hobbit/LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy Gail Godwin, The Odd Woman F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby J. D. Salinger, Catcher in the Rye (before dismissing it, actually read it) George Orwell, 1984 Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle Donna Tartt, The Secret History Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn James Allen, As A Man Thinketh Mark Winegardner, Elvis Presley Boulevard James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times The Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum Winnie-the-Pooh/House at Pooh Corner, A. A. Milne Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie The KJV and NIV Bible (each translation has its glories)
