Music Monday: Demons!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hidy ho my superdy duper little love monkeys!

Look at me! I didn’t forget to do the Music Monday post today!! GO ME!!

This post is a little hard for me to really do. Why you might ask? Well, you all know I like to add a little visual aid to my posts and this one was a hard to do.

Mainly because I didn’t want to scare the bejesus out of anyone with how I see the big baddies in Divinity. I’m not going to lie to you, they are some pretty gruesome individuals. So, I trolled around the web and I did find some excellent visual images of how I see the demons in this tale, however, the photos were really quite scary and I didn’t want to send anyone running and screaming from my wee little corner of the web. That being said, I did happen across an image that I thought I could share with you. Now, this isn’t an image of demons, those were all just too much, this is of another baddie in the tale, goblins. And I apologize in advance for anyone I might scare.

Heehee! Gotcha! Seriously though, this is how I envisioned the goblins but I love that they are drinking tea 🙂

Okay, I DO have some music to go with the demons in the story! This piece just oozes what the demons are all about, Sweet Dreams by Marilyn Manson.

Now, you’ll notice that this isn’t they official video because quite frankly the actual video creeps me the hell out! Actually, Marilyn Manson himself gives me the heebs but I think that’s what gives this song the right vibe for my demons. Why does this song say Divinity demon to me? Well, let’s look at the first couple of lines of the book, shall we…

~~~

Demons.

They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Lawyers, doctors, politicians, the guy on the corner, the lady ringing up your groceries, your kid’s principal, or the over-exuberant PTA mom who runs every bake sale and fundraiser at the school.

~~~

See what I mean? The words to Sweet Dreams alone speak volumes as to how I envision my demons, but add in Marilyn Manson’s creep factor and it’s a dead ringer. Heck I can practically hear it when I read that part there.

Anywhoo, that’s all I have for you today! Stay tuned for more blog fun later this week!

Until next time,
Patty <3

Happy Friday: Pajama Rules!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my scrunchy little love monkeys! Did you gut this week, stuff it with frankincense and myrrh, wrap it in linen strips and close it up in a sarcophagus? You’re mummerifically right you did!

So, did you see my new trailer? It’s kind of awesome!

Oh, there is the giveaway on Goodreads, where we are giving away not one, but TWO copies of Divinity!

Okay, so yesterday I was reminded of a Facebook conversation I had with my friend Cindy regarding the wearing of pajamas all day and the rules that go with that practice. What reminded me of that? Well, on my way to pick up my girls from school there was a mom walking to the school in what was clearly pajama pants.

Now look, I’m all about owning what you wear and all that stuff, but there have to be some kind of rules in place or otherwise shit like this happens.

Also, as a stay-at-home mom, I’m alllllll about kicking around the house in my pjs all day. HOWEVER, after discussing this with my friend, we agreed that there should be rules for the practice of all day pajama wearing.

Rule #1- If you are going to be in public you MUST put on clothes of some sort UNLESS you will NOT be exiting your vehicle or it happens to be October 31st, in which case the wearage of pajamas is completely acceptable.

Rule #2- At no time is wearing your pajamas to the store okay. Ever. You can toss some sweats or some yoga pants on but your SpongeBob SquarePants drawers need to stay home.

Rule #3- Wearing sweats do NOT count as sweats if you are accompanying them with a pair of slippers. The wearing of the slippers transforms the sweats into pajama pants.

Rule #4- If you have asked yourself, “Hmmm, will anyone be able to tell that these are my pajama pants?” the answer is always a resounding YES! If you even half contemplate that said pants MIGHT pass as actual pants, no, no the can not!

Rule #5- I can’t reiterate Rule #1 enough, it is NEVER okay to wear your pajama pants in public! Sweats/yoga pants are just as comfy as pajamas and they are completely acceptable in public.

By the way, my friend Cindy has an awesome blog, everyone go give her some love will ya?

Alrighty, that’s all I have for you today, stay tuned for more blog fun next week!

Until next time,
Patty <3

My Secret Obsession


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Hola my magnificent little love monkeys!

So yeah, I completely and totally got all thrown off by the holiday on Monday and completely and totally forgot about my Music Monday blog. I know, I know, major epic fail on my part. I promise I’ll remember next Monday and have something right nice for you darlings 🙂

Alrighty, I think it’s time I come clean with a slight obsession that I have. Okay, so my hubs would probably say it’s more than a “slight” obsession, but at least I admit it.

I am obsessed with those Monster High Dolls. Luckily I have not one, but two daughters that help me feed this obsession as they love them as much as I do. It has been my goal to get them as many of these dolls as I can and lord knows there is a TON of them. As it is, they have 36 plus 5 make-a-monster kits and 3 add on packs for said make-a-monster kits which make endless doll creations thanks to a multitude of arms, legs, heads, bodies, and wigs, not to mention the selection of animal ears, tails and wings.

Now, why do I say this is obsession? I mean, besides the fact that I have a near innate need to search out every doll I can get my grubby little mitts on. See, when I get a new doll for my girls (yes they are FOR MY GIRLS) I must, MUST be the first one to put hands on the new goody. Yes, you read that right, I have to be the one to open the package, put anything on the doll that goes on it, brush their hair first and place them on their display stand. Sad, I know, but at least I own it. After that the girls can have at the doll and strip all it’s clothes off. Why is it that girls do that? I know I did it when I was a kid whenever I got a new doll, took it out of the package and take every stitch of clothing off of the thing. My grandma even tried to pull a fast one on me once and made me a doll with the clothes sewn on. True story!

But I digress, so there you have it, my deep dark obsession with Monster High Dolls. Oh! I almost forgot! I did get to meet the creator of the Monster High line at Comic Con 2011 and yes, I completely fangirled out all over the poor man but he did sign some Monster High mini comic books for my girls  which they cherish 🙂

Well, that’s all I have for you today. Do you have a deep dark obsession that you want to air out? Come on, let that bad boy out of the closet, it feels gooooooood! Stay tuned for more blog fun!

Until next time,
Patty <3
