As I write, I’m forced to do so to the dulcet background shenanigans of Hellboy 2. sigh. I really hate CGI-laden movies because my favorite part of watching anything on the screen is seeing actors’ faces. I like watching a good actor emote, and I like watching a bad actor sweat. I find acting fascinating, though I’m not at all the starstruck sort. I wouldn’t even walk to the end of the block to see a favorite actor, unless he wanted to go out on a date with me (and the answer is Yes, my new love Eduardo Verastegui, en un segundo caliente).
I’m starting this blog because I’ve been journaling like a maniac and am getting tired of talking to myself, much as I love me. So I’m hoping I’ll gain a little bit of an interactive audience here, to fill in the gaps between my time of reading, journaling, decorating, making stuff, writing a book, and generally being available to my family and to a few intimate friends for coffee klatches. I hope to add other activities to the mix eventually, but for now this is enough. I’m going to be honest in what I write, though I won’t disclose absolutely everything unless I feel like it on any given day. It’ll be mostly whatever pops to my head, so please don’t expect profundity, unless my head happens to be filled with profound thoughts. I gotta say though, don’t count on it. I like to talk about lots of things: hair and movies, yes, but also spirituality and papier-mache, short horror stories and my cat. In fact, that’s a picture of my cat. His name is Horatio and I LOVE HIM. I’m going to try to get in the habit of taking pictures because blogs with lots of pictures are the bomb, but again, please don’t expect many because I tend to forget. You know.
So, this is my first post, and I’ll end it for now. If you stop by, please say hello so I can either meet you as a new friend, or greet you as an old one. The best thing about blogging is that you can’t smell the onions on my breath from dinner. I think I’ll watch some Dark Shadows in a bit, as soon as the TV is free. xo
