Home Tour 2017-2018

When people come into my home for the first time, I usually hear "your home is adorable!" or "I love how you decorate!". To which I reply, "thank you! It's what I like to call garage sale chic." Because that is the best name for my home's decor. I am not trying to be trendy,… Continue reading Home Tour 2017-2018

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Nine “Cousins. Twice Removed”

Forget about the fact that this is silly and unrealistic beyond compare, can we talk about the kick-ass soundtrack this movie would have? In fact, one could argue that I wrote this screenplay SOLELY for the purpose of creating the world's best soundtrack ever. Maybe I am using this screenplay for the music.

My FAQ Post Means I Never Get Asked Anything Frequently

I recently read an article that a good blogger should always create an FAQ post on their blog, which is silly because how do they know what "good bloggers" need for their blog?

Every time you hear "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds on the radio, in the dentist's office, at the supermarket, at Chili's,  I want you to think of this silly little screenplay… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Eight “HELLO!

Shows on Netflix I Watch That Surprise Even Me #StreamTeam

      I still write for Netflix, in case you were wondering. No Netflix still hasn't bought the rights to my screenplay, shocking really. And neither Beverly Hills 90210 nor Mad About You is on Netflix yet. I guess I don't have half the pull I thought I did. Need to work on that… Continue reading Shows on Netflix I Watch That Surprise Even Me #StreamTeam

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Seven “She Doesn’t Have A Lot to Live For. You’ll See When You Get to Chicago”

GUYS. My husband commented not once but THREE TIMES on the blog. For the first time in my almost eight-years writing a blog. Monumental was one of the words I threw out whilst seeing the pending comments in the hopper. Miracles CAN happen.   To read previous scenes, head here. To catch you up in… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Seven “She Doesn’t Have A Lot to Live For. You’ll See When You Get to Chicago”
