    Sledgehammer of Justice

        Last week I participated in the epic silliness that is GISHWHES.  It’s a global scavenger hunt with hundreds of teams vying for a luxury cruise on a pirate ship in Croatia.  Really.   With over 180 items on the list, such as bite Luis Suarez gently, each member of every team had a […]

    Keeping Up With The Orlando Joneses

      I am taking the week off from scraping wallpaper paste and agonizing about paint colors.  If you have any kind of social media pulse, you already know this week is GISHWHES 2014 – although you may have no clue what a GISHWHES actually is. The Greatest Internet Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen […]

    Pardon My French

        That I am writing a series of books based strongly on the color spectrum is an irony growing richer by the day.  I’ve done a lot of research about color, the meanings of colors, the history and etymology.  I’ve learned the words for colors in other languages, vivid color is splashed all over […]

    Home Despot

    I need to get my houses in order.  That’s right, houses plural.  A few months back, my attorney called me “landed gentry”.   Yep, I have an attorney now too.   Things have settled down since Dad died, no fresh dramas to send me spinning.  No complaints about that, but I have been reeling somewhat in […]

    To Live And (Not) Die In Hawaii

      When Arnold Schwarzenegger ran for Governor of California a while back, it provided a large boon to my personal economy.  His campaign headquarters took up several offices in the shabby building housing my lively cafe.  There was a large staff always in need of food, plus we catered many meetings up the War Room. […]

    Lack Of Zaz

    Books are like lives and each chapter is a day in that life.  Just like the days of our lives, some are good, some are bad, some are exciting and some are just plain boring. Telling a story, especially a story filled with exotic locales and magicks, is a lot of fun most of the […]

    Tears of a Prospector

        When I make Prospector cry, it feels like kicking a puppy.  He’s such a kind and dear man, he rarely has a bad word for anyone.  Prospector is reliably big-hearted and takes his mission as guardian of Solstice very seriously.  He has his faults, of course.  He isn’t perfect, but he is the […]

    Squirelly-Whirly

        I haven’t had much blogging inspiration lately.  Pretty much all my creative endeavor of late has been thrown at figuring out what color to paint the fireplace.  Seriously, I keep going back to Home Depot for paint samples.  The guy behind the paint counter recognizes me now, he repeats his advice to have […]

    How To Spoil Your Cat Without Breaking The Bank

      A while back on Twitter, I saw a picture of a family’s elaborate cat tree.  It was a huge multi-level affair with platforms, tunnels and plenty of places to climb.  The picture showed the entirety of the structure in a corner of their home next to some boxes.  Their cat was sleeping on an adjoining […]

    The Fat Chick’s Guide To Promoting Books

    Welcome Travellers! Isn’t this a wonderful day?  When I awoke this morning, a flock of plump bluebirds circled merrily around me and cute enchanted mice fetched my morning slippers.  Metaphorically speaking of course.  There are no bluebirds in California, we have raucous scrub jays instead, and Viva doesn’t allow mice in the home. Even a […]
