That's probably because there has been nothing new to report.  I'm still looking for a new job.  I sent out a bunch of resumes and only got called for one interview.  It's really tough out there and I'm not even out of work and desperate, so my heart goes out to anyone in that situation.

Hubbie and I decided to blow our tax return on a family trip to Jamaica.  That's coming up soon, so I can't wait.  I need some time away, lounging on a Caribbean beach with a cold Red Stripe.

As for finishing my stories, well.....the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.  I really need to set aside some more "me" time.  The offspring starts kindergarten in the fall (still can't get over that one) so, maybe.

In addition to President Obama being re-elected to another term, Bleach manga chapter 515 confirms that Byakuya is still alive.  He's very messed up and may never regain consciousness, but he is not dead.  So, yay!

Well, we survived Sandy.  We lost a good portion of our fence and were without power until early this morning.  But we still got some trick-or-treating in.  Hubbie and I made his costume again this year.

So, I wrote a little story.  Shocker, I know.  I feel like I haven't written anything in ages.

Title: The Scattering of Petals
Rating: PG
Pairing: About as Gen as you can get.
Summary:  Rukia has an unexpected run-in in the Human World.  Heavy spoilers for manga chapters 502 and beyond.

Feedback is always appreciated. 

I wanted to get this in before Hurricane Sandy arrives.

Damn you Kubo Tite for killing off one of my favorite characters!  I really don't need to be crying right before work.

So, yeah...its been a while.  I'm in the process of looking for a new job.  My current one has taken a rather dramatic downhill turn over the past year and I am done.  DONE!  I just sent off my first resume in 12 years.  Wish me luck.

They're playing Madison Square Garden in March and I'm gonna be there.  I'm super excited.  How often do Japanese rock bands play big venues like this in America?  Not very, so I can't let this one pass me by. 

So, yeah its been a while since I've posted.  Not much has happened other than a few health related things.  Nothing major, but if I didn't think health care in the country was fucking joke, I sure as hell do now.  I'll spare you all that rant. 

I'm going to try and make a concerted effort to start writing again.  "Hold Your Light" has been on my mind hardcore for a while now and I need to visit with the boys again.  Perhaps the gods of non-exhaustion will smile down on me.

I wasn't sure if we could top last year's Thomas costume, but I think we managed to.  Here is my little guy in his homemade black Angry Bird costume.  Not too shabby if you ask me.

I'm heading off to NY Comic and Anime Con in just a few.  If its as good as last year, the photo ops will be plentiful.

My kitchen now has a backsplash.  Just a few more things like outlets, under cabinet lighting and molding and we'll be finished!
