So what I’ve been up to since tax season is over.

 

Well, I tried to get my car on the road, but turned out it needs a new exhaust and that will cost as much as the car itself cost to buy, so that’s not happening.

 

I’ve coordinated for Connor’s visit this summer.

 

Working on updating the TVCU blog.  Several updates have been done recently.  Currently working on the Abbott and Costello blog.

 

Of course, working on my first book, the Horror Crossover Universe, which I hope to have published by year’s end.

 

Been working on keeping my apartment clean, which for anyone who knows me, is aware that’s the task for me.

 

Been attending my meetings, trying to keep up serenity and trying to control my bi-polar tendencies.  Looking for sponsor to guide me through the steps, but so far, no such luck.  😦

Old age is not knowing who the person hosting SNL is.

 

After going six weeks without soda, a went and bought a single can at the corner market. Finished it before I got home. And I tell you this tasted like the best damn cold beverage I’ve ever had in my life. Boy, I am a soda addict.

 

Spent 10 minutes at my fridge and cabinets trying to make something yummy appear. Not that I’m without food. I just have nothing I particularly wanted to eat this morning.

 

Just walked by a car with license plate “tmnt 84” and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles air freshened on the mirror. Could it have been Eastman or laird, or just someone proud of the town’s history?

 

Been sleeping 16 hours a day for the past 6 weeks. Probably not good. At least I made the transition so my waking hours are mostly during daylight. I miss caffeine.

Humus chips. Damn tasty. Who knew?

 

I want to drop my LinkedIn account but can’t figure out how to do it.

 

The WiFi at the library is very slow. I have to type everything I want to say,then wait for the to appear.

 

Though I’ve watched the vacation movies a lot, I just noticed they have different houses in each film. (And yes, I know they also have different kids in each film. But it’s easier to recreate a set than give young actors immortality elixirs.)

 

Tonight I put ketchup on hot dogs wrapped on whole wheat bread. I even added mustard. I know it’s not as common as ketchup on rice, but I was in an experimental mood. Turned out to be most delicious.

 

Whenever I’m going through a rough patch in life, the two movies that I always seem to turn to are Popeye and Josie and the Pussycats.

 

I’m pondering if ketchup would taste good on fluffy white rice. I know it’s delicious on fried rice.

 

I’m looking to find a new home for my cat. Anyone interested please let me know.

 

I feel bad for one of my neighbors. She lives in the same building with someone whose not only schizoid but also a dick. He harasses her and bullies her with intimidation daily. She’s living in fear. She’s called the cops often but they just tell him to be nice then go away. Apparently the harassment, bullying, and intimidation are all legal.

 

I have about 700 comics I’d like to sell. I impulsively bought them at an auction a few years ago. They are all near mint or good condition. Almost every publisher is in there. Dates seem to range from 1950s to present, though mostly 1980s and 1990s. I tried eBay but was actually losing money on shipping. If anyone is interested in buying them from me either as the complete collection or each issue, and lives in my area, let me know if you would be interested in viewing them and making an offer. My car technically shouldn’t be operated since the inspection sticker is expired so I can’t bring them to you. I’m also looking to see my bicycle which has hardly been used, and my DVD collection. Also, I may be persuaded to sell my television and DVD player, and a very used and abused kitchen table with two chairs.

 

Forgot it was a holiday. That means no writing and no getting food today. 😦

 

Waking up at 5am instead of 5pm. Have I finally got my sleep schedule back to normal?

 

Just watched batman meet Alfred and rescue him from an East German prison in Top Secret.

 

Horror month day 4. Watched Carnival of Souls, Atom Age Vampire, and Creature from the Haunted Sea.

 

Horror month day 3 watched universal’s Dracula, house of Frankenstein, and return of the vampire. Also updated my nightmare on elm street blog. Now watching wrath of the titans because it just arrived in the mail via Netflix.

 

For horror month day 2 I watched Buffy episode “becoming” and read the spike vs Dracula graphic novel.

 

Horror month day 1. Watched Dracula: the true story, Buffy vs. Dracula, Nosferatu, billy the kid vs Dracula, and a story of Dracula the wolf man and Frankenstein.

 

 

So what’s going on?

2 Sep

 

I am now a full-time writer, so expect blog updates often here, and at the Television Crossover Universe.  I’ve also started up the radio show again, and am working away on my first book, the Horror Crossover Universe.

I just spent the last month with my son, but now he’s gone home, and it’s just me and the cat, so it’s all about writing, writing and writing from here on out.  I’m very excited to be living a dream I’ve had since I was little.  I appreciate all the support I’ve had.

Not much else to talk about now.  I’ll keep everyone updated.

I am co-authoring a book, that is a spin-off of my Television Crossover Universe blog.

The book will be very much in the style of the blog, but it will encompass only horror, or crossovers connected to horror.  It will go beyond the blog in that it will include horror from literature as well.

This will be a must have (I hope) for the horror geek.  The book will encompass many types of horror, from the classic literary tales of Lovecraft, Wells, Stoker, and Shelley, to the classic Universal and Hammer Horror films, to the good old Romero zombie flicks, to modern slasher tales and books from folks like Stephen King.  Even horror related TV shows will be included.  And that’s just the surface.

The book will prove how these stories and characters all co-exist in one very scary shared reality.

I plan to release a series of TVCU related books.  I have started with horror because last summer I took a poll of TVCU fans and this was the most popular one to start with.  Future ones will cover cartoons, sci-fi, and sitcoms.

I’m very excited about the project, and hope that the book will be ready by end of 2013.
