"Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair!" "You speak Kraut now?"

 I should be posting something. I can't seem to pick one subject though to go on and on about. I will be leaving home for a new state on Sunday and I'm starting to get nervous. I'm not sure what I'm more nervous about - the packing, saying goodbye, or the fear that I'm going to get really homesick and want to do nothing but cry. (Aw, such a brave little adventurer I'm turning out to be.)

 This week I need to clean the life out of my car and attempt to fit my belongings in it. (Good thing I have a packing expert for a mum.) I also want to get caught up on my book reviews and finish two shorter books. (Reading helps with the goodbyes.)

 That's my plans in a nut shell.

 Okay, this is turning into a horrible post. I'm putting myself to sleep.

 Yesterday I met up with my reading buddy and went rock climbing. I didn't do the stupid, daring stunts I normally do, since it was the first climb of the season and I was shaken up from riding my motorcycle on the interstate for the first time. You pass by a semi-truck when your five foot two and on a two wheeled contraption and you get a whole new look at your own mortality.
 It was really too cold for a climb and a motorcycle ride, but we tough it out in Wyoming because you either shiver through spring or you hide in your house and only get one month of being outside.

 The best part of riding my bike is when I pull up somewhere and I'm in my leather jacket, gloves, and sunglasses. (No one knows I wear all of the above for added protection in the very likely case I fall over.) Of course I ruin the effect when I wobble to a stop and have to stand on my tip toes to get off.

 I think this sprout of randomness is all I have today. Don't forget I'm holding a giveaway for three early drafts of my Historical Fiction book Brothers-in-Arms!!

Quote is from an Unbroken extra scene. They recorded the full Cinderella play. Watch it, it's brilliant.




  1. You ride motorcycles? Very cool. What type of bike do you own?




    That is so stinking awesome. XD

  3. Woah!! You ride a motorcycle?!! Wow! Also, that quote from Unbroken is just pretty darn great. I need to watch the extras! =)

  4. Well you just became one of the coolest people ever. Motercycle=<3
    (btw, I'll be posting my WWII themed story for the contest tomorrow! Hope I win. :D)

  5. The visual of you riding on a motorcycle makes me really, really happy. I kind of want to draw it. And your little gloves. And glasses. DANG IT, JACK. I really want to draw it now. BUT I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR DRAWING.

  6. Hey there! Just wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you that the move is super smooth and fun!
    And yes, you really *are* a brave little adventurer!
    (For sine reason, this post has me humming "the leader of the pack *vrmm, vrummm!*)

  7. Cool! You ride a motorcycle! That is so awesome.

    But the rock climbing is even better. I've always wanted to rock climb on a regular basis, but flat land Texas doesn't offer much. That and I would need to be stronger. Once I went indoor rock climbing and it was fantastic! Except. . .after an hour my arms were like jello and I couldn't climb hardly two feet even though I wanted to so badly.

    Hope the backing and the moving goes well!
