The Ghost Makes A Post

Just a quick update:

  • My intermittent but well paying job being back to "uber-busy" mode
  • Art commissions
  • Third Trimester of Babyness
These are all factors which have contributed to my lack of posting, Twittering, and overall decreased presence on the Internets. When it rains, it pours, but I can;t complain. My apologies to any readers I still have!

Things will calm down in a few weeks, at which time I will have nothing to do besides work on the nursery and sit around catching up on my posting and chattering.

I can't wait!

When everything begins to taste like pie

It’s that season again.

Some call it fall.  Some call it autumn.  Some call it Thank-God-Those-Little-Hooligans-Are-Back-In-The-Hands-Of-Public-Education-Where-They-Belong-Hey-You-Get-Off-My-Lawn.

I call it punkin’ time.  Because whether you’re dealing with a cheesecake or an air cannon, punkin’ makes everything better.

In Starbucks the other day, I came upon the annual rollout of the Holy Grail of Punkin’ –the Spiced Pumpkin Latte .  Oh baby.

So tasty and momentous, this guy should have been behind the counter:image”Very nice err..Cup Room you have here.”

And if that wasn’t enough, there was this amazing pumpkin cream cheese muffin, shouting “pick me, pick me!”. 

image“THIS is the muffin of a carpenter!”

So I did.  I chose wisely.  And I have no regrets.

Because I’ll be doing this until the end of November.

More punkin’ goodness to come on Wandering Wednesday.

Feature Friday--BunnyKissd


Artists everywhere are getting into gear for the fall season, the time for cooler temperatures, outdoor festivals, and my personal favorite part, pumpkin-flavored everything.

This week, I’m featuring some of the great autumny items in FAE member BunnyKissd’s Fairie Gardens shop.

New FAE Exhibition Is Up!


The FAE have put together their latest online exhibition, “Moonbeams, Stars, and Comets”.  I love this theme, and the submissions are gorgeous!  The overall color palette is beautiful, as is the banner.

I think this is one is the one of best exhibitions yet!

Disney now owns another piece of the universe.


Those guys over at Penny Arcade always seem to know the perfect way to highlight the issues that matter to me.

So, if you haven’t heard yet, Disney just bought Marvel.


That's Disney, as in “Hi ho, hi ho, it off to work we go”.

And Marvel, as in "It's adamantium tasting time boys!"

This should be interesting.


I think it will shake out eventually to be for the better, so long as Disney lets Marvel keep doing what they’ve been doing lately.  And keep Hannah Montana far, far away from everythingStan Lee sounds ok with it, that’s somewhat comforting.

Know what I would really like to see?  A Professor X vs. Jafar matchup.  My bets are on Patrick Stewart there.
