You are not the kind of idiot who sits in front of the teevee

At 3 AM watching “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” again on commercial TV (when you HAVE it on DVD and on the TiVo off of cable with no commercials).

But I am.

I need to just go back to bed.

I’m rankled at Jason Mewes, anyway. If what they say on his Wiki page about how he got out of rehab and was staying with Kevin Smith et ux and stole from them to get drugs . . . then we’re over, you hear? I hope it is just WikiLies. But if it’s true, I am OVER him once and for all. He isn’t even my type of guy, anyway.

My usual type of guy is . . . you know, geniuses.

Jerry Lewis

Woody Allen


But, y’know, “Jay” just kind of got to me. Y’all know I have a thing for guys with long hair. (Although I have also heard Mewes was shorn . . . which would REALLY break us up.) However, I expect good behavior towards friends. So I’m really hoping that stuff is just scurvy rumor.

This is crazy. I’ve got to go back to sleep. Got prep to do for tomorrow night–er, tonight’s trick-or-treaters. I can already feel the veil thinning between this world and the spirit world. . .

Have to choose a costume and a persona!

No, no, none of those. Hmmmmmmmmm.

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?
