Wine for Rednecks

Quite possibly the coolest wine glass ever. Hafta thank my sister for this one:

Yes, folks, that is a mason jar. And in case you were wondering, there is also a lid. Not that you need one when you're drinking wine.

The most wonderful time of the year

I'm not talking about Christmas. Eff that. I love October, and Halloween is my favorite holiday. Why? Hmmm, hard to explain. I've always been into horror movies and stories. I was pretty much raised on them (thanks for that, Dad). I remember doing a book report on Stephen King's Christine when I was in middle school. My best friend and I used to rent horror movies (VHS!) and stay up all night watching them in high school. Creepy, skin crawling stories that have you yelling the characters to stop being so stupid and get the EFF out of there...there's just something about them. Of course, none of this even begins to cover the real history behind the holiday, which is interesting in itself. I realize I'm babbling and probably not making much sense.

ANYWAY, Walking Dead season premier tonight. Hopefully it will live up to the build up.

Blogging it

When I first started this blog, I fully intended to post a least three or four times a week. It's pretty obvious that hasn't happened! Recently I've been thinking (I know, right?) about what exactly I want to get out of blogging. Obviously, as a writer aiming for publication, it could turn into a valuable tool for self promotion and networking. Problem is, I haven't promoted my blog too much because it doesn't really have an identity yet.  Or, at least it doesn't feel like it. Why would anyone other than my acquaintances want to read this? What would I have to offer that another blog wouldn't? *cues crickets chirping*

Anyway, I'm hoping to get back onto a semi-regular blogging habit. I guess I'll figure it all out along the way...
