About Me

Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Peter the Cat...

Peter the Cat...
This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee - the Cat Who Came From Somewhere Else...
Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

And Jasper makes three!
Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

So I didn't do the housework...

I watched the new Jason Lee pilot on TNT called Memphis Beat.  It was good - I loved My Name is Earl and I was really sad when Earl met an early demise. My favorite character on the show was Darnell - I think it was the hair and the secret agent thing - but Jason Lee has a certain something.  His new show is worth watching; his co-stars include Alfre Woodard and Abraham Benrubi.  I think it's on TNT on Tuesday or Wednesday nights, but if you are cable-free like me, you can watch full episodes at TNT online the following week.
  Oh, and did I mention that Jason Lee can sing?

I didn't break out the fava beans or the chianti, but we just spent a lovely couple of hours with Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin.  Shortcut to Happiness is based on Stephen Vincent Benet's short story, The Devil and Daniel Webster.  While I am not a big fan of any of the Baldwin brothers, the eldest acquitted himself quite nicely as Jabez Stone who sells his soul for success as a writer.  He gets success all right but cannot write for crap because as Mr. Hopkins' Daniel Webster points out, "He cannot write because he has lost his soul."  Jennifer Love Hewitt makes a passable devil and there are lots of cameos by real-life writers.  I enjoyed it - but it's hard to go wrong with Anthony Hopkins.
I'm just saying.
