Fanfic Read: 

TV I Enjoyed:

Battlestar Galactica (season 1 and mid-season 2)- I’m completely addicted to this show.

Buffy (seasons 2 & 3 dubbed French with English subtitles – otherwise I don’t get all the jokes)




The “L” Word– Pretty much your typical soap except most everyone’s gay, as entertaining as most soaps but nothing special. 

Music I Listened To:   

O.C. Mix 5

Sub Jobs: 

None, it’s summer

Other Highlights:  
-Blasted returning ear and sinus infections with meds again.  I seem to be fine now.  Think I just need to stay on allergies medicine forever.

-Went to the MD/DE/WV SCBWI conference (local children’s writer’s conf.)


Weekend in Atlanta w/ the kids- saw the brand new Georgia Aquarium, the Stone Mountain laser show, the Olympic Fountain, and hung out with my sister and her family.

Week in Washington State w/ Martin and the kids– saw Orcas on a whale-watching cruise, went kayaking, walked around Hurricane Ridge at Olympic National Park, visited the Music Experience Museum in Seattle, saw my cousin and her family at the International Fountain—coolest fountain ever—and got the full guided tour of the Olympic Peninsula from my other sister and her family. Washington State goes on my list of “Places I might like to live some day” – along with Los Angeles – pretty scenery and laid-back feel.
