Enjoying the sun on my rooftop, with a good drink and better company. This is the way to spend a Sunday!

Happy birthday, mom <3 on Flickr.
Mom passed away March 16, 2012. If she hadn’t, she would have turned 56 today. I still miss her every day.
I love you, mom. Happy birthday <3 </p>
Waiting For Spring on Flickr.
The university campus got covered in snow this week. Looks like this tree is patiently, stoically, waiting for spring to arrive.

Even in the middle of winter, sometimes you get lucky enough to see the sun peeking through!
Frozen Winter Wonderland on Flickr.
So in the winter of 2012 my city received a big, white blanket of snow, and for a little while, turned into a frozen winter wonderland…
Writing is weird.
One minute you are telling a story.
The next minute you are researching the average amount of snowfall Edinburgh gets.
or how to kill someone with a piece of barbed wire and a tomato
Or how much force it takes to dent a human skull with a can of Pepsi.
what the hell are you guys writing?
It was a cold winter night in Edinburgh. While outside, small flurries of snow diligently worked on building up the fifteen centimeters the weatherman had promised would fall overnight, inside her cozy apartment Lizzy gently touched upon the coil of barbed wire set out on the bedside table. Her fingertips fluttered from the wire to a full, red, ripe tomato and she picked it up with a sly grin, casting a glance across the bed at the boy on the other side.
"I hope you’re ready for a wild ride," she said as she put a knee on the bed, leaning forward. Mark grinned back at her, clenching his fingers tighter around the full can of Pepsi in his hand, already eyeing what he knew to be Lizzy’s perfectly shaped head. “Oh yeah. Let’s get it on, baby.”

I can’t. Just. alkfdjslakdhfjkldsj

Tilburg University on Flickr.
Another one full of fall color goodness. Taken yesterday at Tilburg University :)
Yellow to Brown on Flickr.
Sigh. The colors are already changing to an unpleasant brown again. So I had to make one last attempt at catching some color before the magic of the fall wears off!
Another day, another write-in, meeting up with other writers to enjoy some coffee and some… writing. #nanowrimo #writein #10Ktoday (at La Place)
YOU SEE THAT, DONALD? THAT’S A HERD OF ANTELOPE. WE’RE GOING TO EAT THEM. DO YOU KNOW WHY WE’RE GOING TO EAT THEM?
BECAUSE WE’RE HUNGRY?
NO, BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T GO TO COLLEGE. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T GO TO COLLEGE. YOU DIE SCREAMING IN A FIELD. NOW LET’S EAT. AFTER THAT YOU’RE GOING TO FINISH YOUR HOMEWORK.
that guy standing next to you must be my alter ego because he is giving you the side-eye I ONLY WISH I COULD HAVE GIVEN YOU IN THAT MOMENT.
WHAT IS THIS.
your tracksuit is velvet. you are wearing a velvet tracksuit robert. i don’t know what the natural habitat of velvet track suits is but it CERTAINLY SHOULD NOT BE THE BODY OF ROBERT DOWNEY JR.
compounding the sheer SCALE of this fashion disaster, your shirt is BRIGHT BRIGHT PINK and has a skull on it. i can’t tell what’s on the shoulder of it but it looks FAR TOO MUCH like an homage to the desktop icons of a clunky Windows XP computer for me to be comfortable with it. the only other spot of color in this outfit robert is the PURPLE HIGHTOPS which under different circumstances might have been acceptable (and we all know how much you love purple, robert) but in this case…no.
FINALLY. robert. THE MANPURSE. WHAT IS THAT. i might just choose to believe you are holding susan’s purse for her for a moment because overall that is the worst iteration of your sketchy manpurse i have ever seen and I AM SIDE-EYEING IT ALL THE WAY TO THE MOON.
robert. please. take a look in the mirror from time to time.
