Many people have been asking how the movie is going, so I decided I should drop in on editing to see what was happening. I found Stewart, Stan's twin brother doing the editing.

The conversation went something like this
Me:  Hi there. People are always asking when the movie will be out.

Stu:  Hopefully, this fall. Do you want to see some of the scenes?

Me:  Sure, sweetie. I'd love to!

     So, we look at a few scenes.

Stu:  So, hey-- aren't they fun!

Me:  Ummm, is this all you have done???

Stu:  Yeah, you know, I'm only one guy and I have real paying jobs to take care of.

Me:  (I'm thinking, what a whiner, but instead I say)  Is there anything I can do to help?

Stu: Wow, sure. This place is a dump, could you maybe sweep? And oh yeah, if you have time, run the dishes and clean the bathroom. First of all, I could really use a drink out of the frig. And make sure you don't touch the computers!

Me:  Humph. That's not really what I had in mind. (At this point, I'm debating on whether I should juice this guy, but I really need him to edit and I don't typically add men to my clan)

Stu:  You kind of have a funny look on you face.
         You don't have to leave mad.

Me:  I just remembered I have an appointment to get my nails done. Ciao.
        Oh, and hire a housekeeper.

Stu:  Wait, wait, I have this delivery you can make on your way...

Happy Valentines

When I was human, my heart was broken by a dashing young man. He didn't even take notice of me. How heartless!
I always think of him briefly on Valentine's day. He never would have guessed that I would grow up to be such a heart stopper.

But enough of that. Valentine's day is such a fun day to celebrate. All those lovely candy hearts and red, red hearts on cards and ads. Hearts are everywhere!

What's your favorite? Chocolate or the little sugar candy ones? And how about the ones boxed up and dressed to surprise? It's making me a little hungry to tell you the truth. I'm going out to prowl and to see what I can find in the way of a valentine sweet.

Stuck in Oklahoma

Members of my clan live in various place across the world. I call them my blood relatives and it's a great way to travel and have a cozy place to stay.  Of course, I no longer have relatives in Puerto Rico because of a couple of  "vampire hunters"  but that's another story.

This past weekend was a real wash. My relatives were planning a fun Sedona weekend. I couldn't wait to check out the vortex action. Maybe even go up to Flagstaff for some skiing. But on the drive out, I got stuck in an ice and snow storm in Oklahoma.  And It was so cold, it nearly froze my undead blood!

My little car wasn't made for that kind of weather. And no, I wasn't about to change into a bat and fly through sleet. No frost bitten wings for me.

There wasn't much to do but scan the menu while hanging out in the hotel bar. Of course, I chatted with some cute guys, and there were lots of tasty options. So much so that I decided the buffet was the way to go. When they woke up in the morning they probably thought that giant bed bugs had bitten them.
