Top Headlines: Summer ends and I am focus on the last third of the year.
I can't wait for fall. I love the cool weather and the leaves changing. I will buy more notebooks and pens at discount price. (I can never have enough of those.)
There many things I am looking forward to this fall.
- The surprise in September: There is a lot of walking, and I cannot take a back pack, but I am going to want to pack a lunch. (I haven't packed a lunch since I was in school.)
- My grandparents are having the 50th wedding anniversary in September. I'm really excited about that. It's a fancy party and Tom can wear is ties he got for 75% off from JC Penny's.
- In October Tom and I are going to Brown game versus the Bengals. (All Ohio.) It's really cool, because I have never been to the stadium before.
- I also plan to practice writing in September and October working on the second set of the 50 posts (51-100) and work more on my experience project site. http://www.experienceproject.com/profile.php (Rebekahwriter13)

- In November, I plan to finish my murder thriller novel call “Driving Lies” in NaNoWriMo.
I went to the hospital a few weeks ago and I got antibiotics that gave me migraines and a temporary allergy to the sun.
Now I have a rash from my meds. . . it never ends.
Writing and Arts
Well, I have had writer's block since June, so most of the time all the writing I have been doing has been in my diary. I have been working on my vampire novel series, bit it's mostly details and research.
During the entire month of August, I decided to post my e-novel “The Whispering Path” for on smashwords.com. I have over 100 downloads, but not one review. I understand it looks long, but is only, because I have it in 12 font. I did have one interview and two spotlights this month.
They are all linked together on my writing blog:
Tom and I went to the corn festival. It was nice, the fireworks were awesome, and the food was good, but I would have better enjoyed it if I wasn't sick to my stomach. However I was disappointed with the palm reading; it was one of the main reason I wanted to go. (In years past she was great, but this year I just felt like she was stating vague things and was trying to be all secretive to get me to come in and pay for full price reading. First of all, if I am paying you at all, I would like to know something that I don't know about myself. Secondly I learned more about a numerology book that my mom rented at the library that weekend than the reading I got. Thirdly, yes that palm reader is good, but 45 dollars even with a 15% discount is too high for a full palm reading. I mean with a reading like that you would have to give me the winning lottery numbers and what direction I need to go.)
Tom felt she was going to say that I should break up with him, but I doubt since she told him that we were soul mates. I do feel she is going to tell me that I need to drop certain people from my life. (Even my dreams are stating that now; it's a long story.)
September, Tom has a huge surprise planned for us. He keep rubbing it in. I'm curious, but I just need to let it go: I think it's either the zoo or an amusement park.
Remember even writing in your journal is considered writing. :-) Happy Writing!
Myself and I
Laughter is the best medicine
God is the topic
One day a rather inebriated ice fisherman drilled a hole in the ice and peered into the hole and a loud voice said, "There are no fish down there."
He walked several yards away and drilled another hole and peered into the hole and again the voice said, "There's no fish down there."
He then walked about 50 yards away and drilled another hole and again the voice said, "There's no fish down there."
He looked up into the sky and asked, "God, is that you?"
"No, you idiot," the voice said, "it's the rink manager."
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching."
The Pope arrives in heaven, where St. Peter awaites him. St. Peter asks who he is.
The Pope: "I am the pope."
St. Peter: "Who? There's no such name in my book."
The Pope: "I'm the representative of God on Earth."
St.Peter: "Does God have a representative? He didn't tell me ..."
The Pope: "But I am the leader of the Catholic Church ..."
St. Peter: "The Catholic church ... Never heard of it ... Wait, I'll check with the boss."
St. Peter walks away through Heaven's Gate to talk with God.
St. Peter: "There's a dude standing outside who claims he's your representative on earth."
God: "I don't have a representative on earth, not that I know of ... Wait, I'll ask Jesus." (yells for Jesus)
Jesus: "Yes father, what's up?"
God and St. Peter explain the situation.
Jesus: "Wait, I'll go outside and have a little chat with that fellow."
Ten minutes pass and Jesus reenters the room laughing out loud. After a few minutes St. Peter asks Jesus why he's laughing.
Jesus: "Remember that fishing club I've started 2000 years ago? It still exists!"
In The Beginning
In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth. And the Earth
was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And Satan said, "It doesn't get any better than this."
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
And God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed,
and the fruit tree yielding fruit," and God saw that it was good.
And Satan said, "There goes the neighborhood."
And God said, "Let us make Man in our image, after our likeness, and let
them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air and over the cattle, and over all the Earth, and over every creeping
thing that creepeth upon the Earth." And so God created Man in his own
image; male and female created he them. And God looked upon Man and
Woman and saw that they were lean and fit.
And Satan said, "I know how I can get back in this game."
And God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach,
green and yellow vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live
long and healthy lives.
And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the 99-cent
And Satan said to Man, "You want fries with that?"
And Man said, "Supersize them." And Man gained 5 pounds.
And God created the healthful yoghurt, that woman might keep her
figure that man found so fair.
And Satan brought forth chocolate. And Woman gained 5 pounds.
And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."
And Satan brought forth Ben and Jerry's. And Woman gained 10 pounds.
And God said, "I have sent thee heart-healthy vegetables and olive oil
with which to cook them."
And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own
And Man gained 10 pounds and his bad cholesterol went through the roof.
And God brought forth running shoes and Man resolved to lose those extra
And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so Man would not
have to toil to change channels between ESPN and ESPN2.
And Man gained another 20 pounds.
And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil." And God brought
forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low in fat and brimming with
And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center
into chips and deep-fat fried them. And he created sour cream dip also.
And Man clutched his remote control and ate the potato chips swaddled in
cholesterol. And Satan saw and said, "It is good."
And Man went into cardiac arrest.
And God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.
And Satan created HMO's.
The teacher asks the class to write a short composition dealing with four major subjects: religion, nobility, sex and mystery.
In a flash, Anna 's hand shoots up. Amazed at the rapid response, the teacher asks her to read her piece out loud.
"'Oh my God!' exclaimed the countess, 'I'm pregnant, and I don't know by whom.'"
Fun, I saw this very sarcastically, I had to reinstall everything on my computer and I lost a few of my writings and several weeks of my Sim game. (That is my fault for not saving on a flash drive fast enough.)
I don't know who makes viruses, malware, or spamming issues, but I truly hope Karma kicks you in the ass. I wouldn't wish a virus on anyone's computer. It seems we were getting virus after virus over the summer. I felt like I was fixing my computer all summer and then bam. . . I got the horrible blue screen of death. (It wouldn't even let me go into safe mode to fix the problem by file after file.)
I had to completely restart everything and then get the drivers for my modem, and upgrade my explorer and graphic driver. I still have no sound as it claims we have no sound card. (For that I have to open my computer up, look up the numbers and google the name and number for the current driver.)
Again, I hope those who make viruses, try to passwords and number with spamming, may Karma find you and do it's worst.
(I was going to put this under fun, but it was more drama than anything, because I was depress for several days, before I could get the drivers, because I couldn't go out being temporary allergic to the damn sun.)
However in the end, we believe it was one of the retro gaming sites Tom was going on. It made me sad, because he enjoy playing those games and we can never find an emulator that really works.
My dad brought over awesome fruit, fresh peaches (the kind that drips down my elbow), watermelon, tomatoes.
However I just found out that my Grandma had breast cancer that spread to her lymph nodes.
Tom also found that his grandpa has colon cancer.
Please send some healing vibes. . . positive vibes.
This month has a blue moon (on Friday August 31st.)
For most people, it just means things get crazy twice in one month.
However for Pagans and anyone who believes in the power of the moon, it means a powerful time of seeking wishes and believing in the impossible. It kind of goes in the phrase “Once in a Blue Moon.”
Blue moons come just about every three years and every 9 years there are two blue moons in the same year. (Next year with two blue moons is 2018.)
Spiritually, Blue moons are good for success, luck, growth, expression, new ideas, wishes, openness, and new beginnings.
This blue moon is in Pisces so it's about dreams, clairvoyance, telling the future (prophetic powers.) etc. It is also good for making goals, and mediation. I believe reading tarot would also be good on the blue moon (at least this one anyway.)
