If We Were Having Coffee // Happy Halloween Season!

Hello, hello, dear readers! Thank you for stopping by for a little coffee and conversation. Don’t worry, I’m feeling much better than last week, no more coughing, no more sniffling, and a lot less negativity. I’m a little tired and off to a slow start today, not to mention I’m a little bummed about having to go back to work tomorrow after having a long and lovely four-day weekend.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I, like most Americans, did watch last week’s Presidential Debate and also like most Americans, thought, what in the fuck?

I think I’ve made it pretty obvious around here, but just in case I haven’t let me be clear, while I do not think Hillary Clinton is perfect, I do not think she will be the worst President this country has ever had. Actually, I think she will do a pretty good job. She does have a history of getting shit done, you know?

On the other hand, I do in fact think that Trump will be the worst President this country has ever had. He’s a liar, a misogynist, and I don’t think he takes the job seriously. I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone would support him.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that for better or for worse I can’t wait for this election to be over.  Oh, of course, I am worried about the results, but I am looking forward to the relief of it all being over too. I look forward to less hatred and lies filling every social media feed. I look forward to being able to talk with friends and family without worrying about their political views. I look forward to this country getting on with the business of helping it citizens live happy and healthy lives.

Just remember that can only happen if you register to vote, and then vote for Hillary Clinton on November 8th. Thank you.

If we were having coffee, I would laugh off that rant and jump right into telling you about all the ways I am going to fail at NaNoWriMo.  I can’t believe I thought this was a good idea. I have one month, minus these past two days where I wasn’t productive at all, to plan a book. A whole book!

I did work a little last week, getting together a very vague idea of what this book is going to be about. This week I plan to do a little world building, learn more about my characters, and outline the beginning. I am also working around the clock to pull ideas and inspiration from every source I can get my hands on.

I’m pursuing articles on The Better Novel Project and Write on Sisters for now, but if you know any other sources of writing how-to, I’d love to hear about them.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this season isn’t all anger and anxiety, it’s also Halloween season! Yes, dear readers, it is the most wonderful time of the year, time to get spooky!

Last week we saw the strange and wonderful slasher movie Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, and last night attended a Beetlejuice movie party, both at the Alamo Drafthouse of course. I considered their Nightmare on Elm Street seven movie marathon, but let’s be honest, a lot of those movies were crap, right?

At home, I’ve already watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers and the surprisingly scary At the Devil’s Door, not to mention the very creepy current season of American Horror Story. I’ll, of course, watch all my other favorites too, The Shining, Carrie, and The Witch just to name a few. I’m still looking for a party to attend for Halloween weekend, though.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I had better get going. There is a ton of housework to do, and I’d like to get it done before some of my shows tonight. Westworld is premiering on HBO, and if it’s half as good as this teaser trailer makes me think it is, I’m going to love it.

So yeah, I hope you had a great weekend. Enjoy what’s left of your freedom, the work week is only hours away, bleck! If you have a moment I’d love if you stopped by the comments and say hi. I love hearing from you all and I’ll be around to chit-chat while I clean and fold laundry.

Until next time :)

  1. Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for that public service announcement regarding voter registration. I think all the hatred has not been all negative. That’s because I think it has served to let us know that, although we may not see it or hear it often, it’s out there. There are thousands of Americans who have been given license to speak the hatred they hide. After all, if a presidential candidate can do it, why can’t they sling it, too. Right? I will be happy to see it go away but I am also glad that it has reminded us that in 2016, there is still too much hatred and bigotry in our country.
