Happy Post Halloween!… plus LIGHTNING STRIKES AGAIN!

I’m a vampire every year but mortality felt inappropriately close this weekend. But, before the brush with death, October was fun. It’s the best month and it didn’t disappoint. We dressed up more than we have in the past few years and that was fun. Also, Halloween seemed to go on and on because Milwaukee […]

You’ve Been Too Much, Summer: Halloween, Save Us All

I think the last time I enjoyed summer was back when I was a kid. Back then, it was all waterparks and swimming pools and fireworks and staying over at friends’ houses and running around in the dark of our neighborhoods playing Ghosts in the Graveyard, Witches Come Out Tonight and other shocking children’s games. […]

So You Hate Reading… (Buy My Audiobook 🤷)

Have I recently mentioned my job is insane and it’s pushed me to the edge of some kind of breakdown? I haven’t ranted about it too much on here because it’s kind of thrilling to feel on the virtual edge of a nervous breakdown when not a single life is on the line. Not even […]

Dead On My Feet 🦇😺 and I Hear the Four Horses Are Warming Up… Just in Case (Election 2020)

If you follow this little blog, you’ll know I coped with rather terrible medical news a few weeks ago by focusing on how this year I’d be hosting a Vampire’s Dinner Party on Halloween night. IT HAPPENED! This orphan finally used my parents’ Noritaki China dishware, glassware and silverware which years ago I salvaged from […]

Just in Time For Halloween! A Villainous Threat or… Voting 2020?

What’s scarier than Halloween? Politics. And Voting 2020 is getting into the Halloween spirit. Now I don’t order stuff online often (because it will be stolen if left on our stoop for two seconds #milwaukeeproblems), but when I do… it’s recently and for this All Hallow’s Eve Vampire Dinner which I’ve been planning. Yet, last […]

Being a Vampire Host: A Special Halloween Blog

Oh my my my my. If All Hallows’ Eve wasn’t falling on a Saturday this year and if the couple I had been envisioning weren’t magically available for this year’s Saturday Halloween four course vampire-hosted dinner… I would be feeling somewhat crushed by life. I know, join the club. But the usual stuff plus the […]

To Be (Allergic) or Not To Be: The Small Saga Continues

This entry provides an update of my theory that my epilepsy medication is causing my body to physically fall apart. As an update, it’s now been a week of me being off Briviact, the epilepsy medication I’m theoretically allergic to, and also a week of being back on the only other medication (Levetiracetam) which prevents […]
