From Where the Sidewalk Ends . . .

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 23, 2014, 2:43 PM
"If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer,
If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!"


Shel Silverstein folks.  My favorite poem of his ever . . . it actually ranks quite highly on the 'favorite poems ever' list.  I have a 'favorite poems' list; I guess that makes me a literary nerd.

So!  Updates!

To date, my mom is *not* moving in with me.  My stepdad sent her an itemized list of where all the money went - turned out he paid off some rental properties and didn't tell her.  It still wasn't a nice thing to do, but it's a lot better than not being able to account for the money at all.  

Tatts may be coming to live here after all - minus his testicles.  He lost his damn mind every time mares were around and the deal was, if he couldn't learn the difference between work time and fun time, they had to go.  So they went.  Mom has discovered her bitch-tastic mare's attitude improved immensely once mom became her only outlet for socializing.  So she's honestly thinking of giving Tatts to me and keeping Branna isolated.

(Normally this is the exact opposite of what you should do, as this is what drove Tatts nuts, but Mom is retired and can work with Branna 3x a day and it seems to be working, but it's weird that it does.)

I was going to take Gytha to the Chicago Thanksgiving Day parade, but then they announced the theme for the costumes: the movie FROZEN.  Which takes place in Norway.  And every horse in it is a Norwegian Fjord.  So now I kind of have to take Toki.  I know no one else would know the difference or know that I have a Fjord at home, but I would.  My inner authenti-geek would twitch the whole time.  So I'm going as Coronation Anna.  I can wear danskins and underarmor under the dress and I have a black cloak that is very, very warm.  I can line it with green fabric and gold ribbon and it will fit the dress's colors of black, green, and gold.

So that's the news from my neck of the woods!

In conclusion, here's a video of a corgi dressed as a spider:

STEPmother by SparklinBurgndy
STEPmother
This started out as a artistic exercise, which turned into writing inspiration and expect a teaser in a few days.

I wanted to draw a dwarf woman and a human child the same height.  It was a lot harder than I thought! I got the dwarf woman in just fine, but when I tried to put the little girl in, I kept wanting to give her more curve than her age called for.  I finally cheated with a high waisted dress.  The last time I felt that much artistic *wrong* was that fic with Clay and Johnny Betty where I switched their sexual roles.  They were still hot for each other, but Clay was consider the 'woman' in that society and JB was the 'man'.  I twitched every time I typed 'his husband' or 'her wife' . . . . which is not a problem I ever had writing gay couples.  Maybe it was the fact that I *knew* they were technically straight . . . 

ANYway, somewhere in the detail-adding portion, I was really taken with the idea that the dwarf lady was the human girl's stepmother.  Hence the little girl's super-elaborate hairstyle.  Because you know if a dwarf had a human daughter, she would still have the fanciest, schmansiest braids around!

And this was a bit of inspiriation for me; expect a colored version and another book teaser in a few days.

A new low (pun!) eharmony lists my height as 4' 12" . . . I think I'm officially a dwarf now.
Dream Horse by SparklinBurgndy
Dream Horse
First off, this is not my horse.  She's not even one I'm thinking about buying because she's not for sale.  The trainer at the local boarding stable is having me train her (the owner, not the horse) to drive.  Bella (the horse) already knows how to drive.  So after a session, she saddled her up and let me ride her.  

Bella is half Freisan, half Percheron, she's trained to do everything under the sun and I'm sure would have enjoyed riding her more if the stirrups hadn't been to long and the reins too short.  The stirrups were up as far as they could go and still too long.  I had to lean forward to grab the reins.

She's still gorgeous.  And a good girl.

Okay, so I had this dream that might make a good story with some tweaking. Problem is, it is very obviously mindless self indulgence. Would you want to read a story that was just fantasy fodder for the author?
