Can I has Vacation

There has been talk about the post office laying off those who have worked for less than 6 years. That’s about half the routes in Lawrence. Scary right? So it’s got me thinking I just want a vacation, a vacation away from it all.

A house rental would be great. I can relax and have some space to myself. My grandparents had a condo that they rented in Ormond Beach, FL, and man, that was sweet!! Right on the water.

I just need to rent a house, and get away. Anywhere, anyway, anyhow. Anyone want to join me?

A Nice Writing Program

A friend suggested I check out yWriter4 for NaNo. It’s an amazing program.

Writing Excercise: Female Lead for NaNo

1. What is your name? How did you acquire that name? What does it mean, if anything, to you?
Adrienne Karahalios
Adrienne means dark, and I was born during a dark period in my mother’s life.

2. What was your childhood like? Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Greece. A single child between my mother and my father. Just after my mother could take my father as her mate, he was killed by Katagaria hunters. She barely escaped with her life, carrying me as well, unbeknownst to her.

My mother gave me the best life that she possibly could. I never wanted for anything. The only thing I ever dreamed of was to meet my father. Because I never had that chance, I think I’m always searching for a father figure, though my mother loved me, and gave me all she could.

My mother passed away when I was only 45, so now I’m on my own.

3. What is the first thing people notice about you when they meet you? What’s the second?
Physical? Well, the physical is either my lips or my eyes. My eyes are a pale, pale ice blue. My lips are reminiscent of Angelina Jolie, even though I bore them first.

After that? I have absolutely no idea. I ignore most people. I’m ‘polite’, but I’d rather just be alone.

4. What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
It’s a requirement? Honestly, I don’t really get up in the “morning”. I’m more of a night owl, or cat, I guess I should say. I do not like getting up at all.

But my reason for actually getting up? Because I have a job that I love. I own and run my own clothing store. I love it. I love my customers, and my “employees”. It’s the family I crave.

5. Do you have an Achilles heel? What is it?
I’m always searching for that “one” that the Fates have decreed I be with. Sadly, I seem to always be stuck with the asshole by the name of Osias Kallas. I do not like that man at all.

I’m also searching for that father figure. It seems to be doomed, as I keep looking up to the wrong man.

6. How do you feel about kids? Do you have any?
I love kids, and want a whole pack of my own. That requires a were-mate first. I hope and pray the Fates haven’t stuck me with a freaking human for that.

7. Love interest? Common, be honest.
What? Are you hinting that I might have feelings or desire Osias Kallas? Are you out of your freaking mind. Oh hell no

8. Where do you hope to be in five years?
Right here. Doing what I love, being with the one I love, having a child of my own.
Do I forsee that happening? Hell no, and it pisses me off!

9. Boxers or briefs?
Um, I’m a female. I don’t wear that shit. Oh, fine. Boxers to bed, thongs or bikini briefs when I’m not. There? Does that make you feel any better, you nosy bastards?

10. Any last words?
Oh, it’s over. Well crap. Oh well. back to work
