Awards and Airheads (Airhead as in my main character)

Hello, all.
I am sorry I have not written you in while, but the purple-eyed monster known as Projects has been trying to head-butt me into submission with deadlines. Also, the delicate koi Scholarship has been swimming out of  reach for sometime now (through I have submitted applications four of them so far including Bill Gates).


My Valentine's day went pretty well, seeing as it is the day I first wrote Sirius-the-dragon and the Lovely Worm. I know it seems kind of cheesy to write a love-story-fairytale on the most romantic day of the year, but sue me for being a sucker for mushy stuff.


So, in honor of that (and the fact that I have been offer the Stylish Blogger Award  by the wonderful Ms. Sylvia Ney), I give your seven facts about me.


  1. I hate the smell of cheese
  2. I love ranch dressing on just about everything
  3. I prefer Oldies over anything new music
  4. I have an obsession with sea creatures
  5. Shrek and Shrek 2 are my favorite movies
  6. I think my main character is a total airhead
  7. I have submitted an application to Wofford College
I would also like to pass on the award to any of my loyal followers who have not received it before. Here's the link to Ms. Ney's site.

Have a great President's day.

A Week in a Wink of an Eye

Whoa. It's been a week already? Wow, time flies when you're fishing for the slippery polliwog Scholarship. February marks the start of working on the newsletter (a project that we will be working on for the next five weeks). Wofford College just received my application are now reviewing it.  So, while I'm bouncing like a rubber band until that honey-tongued application letter comes, have a great week.
