Susan the Boyle! vs. Dracula!

Star Moments

I’m here.  Did you miss me?  I know you did, so I continue the saga which is my life.  Summer roles on and much to do about nothing seems to be the theme of the week.  Work was fabulously busy but by weeks end I began the quest of fighting off a chest cold, thanks to the dirty creep on the bus that did not cover his mouth when he coughed directly in my face.  I was redeemed when he tripped getting off the bus.  I digress.

Do you take the bus?  I do.  I decided many years ago that driving was just not for me.  Though my friend “O” lent me her drivers book with the effort to get me studying for my G whatever it’s called, I have yet to read a page.  Sorry “O”.  Maybe in September, I think the act of study makes more sense in the fall. Excuse me while I make myself a hot lemon. A girl at work, let’s just call her J suggested Neo Citron but I don’t have any so I’m improvising! I’m fighting a chest cold thanks to evil dirty man on the bus…..

OK so study ya better in September. Although to be honest not likely to happen. My life has become some what crowded of late. My partners Mom is staying with us until she gets a new hip.  Can you imagine?  A new hip. I always fancied myself a new nose but never had the braves to make it happen.  I did get a horrid mole removed from my right nostril years ago. Everyone was like hey you have a booger on your nose and I was like no it’s not it’s a mole. I was like screw this, Mom, Dad get me a plastic surgeon.

Where was I? Ya work this week, hectic.  Actually, the store was buzzing with wonderful little mellow dramas that kept me on my toes. After a huge event, I was trying my best to recover from, I found myself becoming the lipstick fairy to one lady friend who seems to be, beyond her better judgement letting me choose her lipstick for her.  I love the reds!!! She looks hot in the reds!!!!  But alas I think she may have a little boy crush!  And no not on me!  I keep her in lipstick and she keeps me in mirror chat just when we are about to end it all with our McQueen scarves.  Mirror chat is an expression when one talks to them-self in the mirror and there is plenty of that to go around!

I woke up Wednesday morning with a new friend.  I tiny little buddy that starred me right in the face as I glued my hair to it’s new and improved spiked style.  With all the stress this week I ended up with a small red Boyle on my eye lid! What the freak are you?  Ends up it’s a sty.  I have a sty on my eye!  Of course people were so kind as to ignore it all week. Not! They simply could not refrain from asking “Whats that on your eye?” It’s a Boyle named Susan, what’s it to ya.

She’s still sticking around and I’m hoping to be rid of her come Sunday when I’m back to work.  Maybe then I can refocus everyone’s attention back to my unfailing wit and charm instead of the singing Boyle on my left eye lid.  Damn you Susan the Boyle!  Will you stop singing I’m trying to get some sleep!

I began to read!! huge for me! I am not a reader! You would think maybe considering I write my own blog but no not a reader but I have begun a book. Dracula!  Funny thing is, that the story starts mid May and continues through October. It run’s in perfect timing as the time of year and so I do hope to finish it around Halloween.  It’s actually the Illustrated version, yes which means it has pictures, which was so conveniently pointed out to me by a colleague of mine, as if I only got the book to look at the pictures! Which isn’t exactly incorrect! Hey a guys gotta start somewhere.  Anyway, the artists name is Jae Lee.

Lee first rose to prominence in the industry for his work on Marvel’s Namor the Sub-Mariner, Inhumans (for which he won an Eisner Award), and The Sentry, as well as his creator-owned character Hellshock at Image Comics.

Lee also worked with artist Richard Isanove and writers Robin Furthand Peter David on Marvel ComicsThe Dark Tower comic series, based on Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower novels. He will illustrate King’s latest Dark Tower novel, The Wind Through the Keyhole, which is scheduled for publication in 2012.  Maybe I will dig into those next.

Between scary reads that go bump in the night and the bump that keeps scaring the crap out of me in the morning, I think a good nights sleep is all I need so until next week.

Let The Truth Unfurl!
