Amazon Weaning

As most of you know, I loves me some Amazon. Since we don’t drive, it’s incredibly easy and awesome to get canned and dry goods, batteries, cooking stuff, whatever we need delivered within 2 business days (or faster if we feel like paying for it). We have a Prime subscription, which is going up in price again even though it just went up. We also had a Prime Pantry scrip (they used to charge $5.99 to deliver grocery items at…

We doth not purchase it…

I don’t buy much stuff on the eBay, because it has always seemed about as trustworthy as a garage sale in a town you don’t live in. Occasionally though, I can’t resist. Between an extra gig, H’s work bonus, and my tax return, we had a bit of money for H and me to buy ourselves something fun. For my thing, I bid on an Agents of SHIELD thing, signed by Bill Paxton. For anyone who doesn’t know me, Bill…

*grabby hands*

The Scared Soapless Kickstartery thing is still going on. Just over the halfway point–both in terms of time and earnings. Coooool, right? We’ve contracted with sculptor Brian McGuire to create a custom mold of this fiendish character, who we think you’ll recognize. We chose him based on our adoration for this sculpture, which was painted by a dude named Al Warner. We’ll be making our scary Vampire out of soap, and it’s gonna be terrifying. We’re also stepping up our…

How would YOU like to give ME some money?

You know how money is sometimes exchanged for goods and services?I’m doing a bit of that now in my Kickass Kickstarter. A KickASSStarter if you will…which you shouldn’t…because that was terrible.   It’s slow going with the raising of funds, but I’m hoping for the best.  I have some great soaps on offer, plus a few things for people who (and I’m told they really do exist) don’t like horror and aren’t looking for ways to work more of it into…

Fun-eral

That goddamn This Is Us has become the cryin’est night of my week. Granted, I’m pretty weepy when I watch shows anyway, and this one is carefully orchestrated grief porn. I know it. I don’t care. One thing I’m def taking away from it is the concept of a fun funeral, where the life of the deceased is happily celebrated. I want genuine laughter, maybe a few tears (but not the kind that rip you apart inside), and the kind…

I have a crush on James Comey

I’m one of those people who enjoys believing in things. I spent decades trying to find the right religion–the one that, upon hearing its tenets I immediately realized this was the thing I’d been looking for forever. Despite reading about every religion I could, past and present, I never found it. Eventually, I resigned myself to the fact that supernatural things are a wish, not a want, and that joining the Satanic Temple made the most sense. It didn’t require…

Soap!

It’s me, here again with a smooth new H-created logo and a new horror thing I’m gonna try. As soon as my seed funding comes through, I’m becoming one of those housewives who makes and sells soap out of their home. Sounds froofy, right? I get it. You know how every year I do a craft or bake something for my family? I’d been doing lip balms for a while now. I thought people were being polite when they said…

Holidays, Happy.

Every time I come over here to post I feel like I should apologize for not having done so earlier. Screw it. I can’t imagine that anyone is truly fussed about whether or not I blog. What’s up with me?Well, I’m still hoping to start a new business venture this year. It’s gonna take about $3,000 for startup expenses for my Kickstarter. I need to buy some things for packaging, bases and other supplies, a printer with all that entails…

There’s No Need to Argue…Men Just Don’t Understand…

So much talk about sexual harassment has got me thinking. I’m not gonna talk about the whole giant issue because it’s too big and I’m not really an expert. Obviously, all those coming forward should have their complaints taken seriously and investigated fully without presumption about who might be lying and why. That said, I also want to say this. I believe the men.The men who say and think and do these things (#NotAllMen, yes, we know) seem to share…

Soapyness

Wow, I pretty much suck at blogging anymore.Well, I do write roughly ten blog posts a week–but they’re for clients and not for myself. I’m guessing no one wants to hear my thoughts on overhead garage doors or lifestyle tips for moms on a budget any more than I want to have them. But alas, we are poor. Instead of doing holiday lip balms this year, I’m giving soaps a try. I thought this was a cool, fun idea until…
