I have a new blog! Come join me!

Hello my dear readers!

I got a creative itch and I had to scratch it. I retired this blog and created a brand new and improved one. Come join me at www.Novellarella.blogspot.com

In the About Me section on the new blog, I kind of summarized why I decided to make a change. Writing my first book inspired me to create something that was more ME. This one was my pet project to combat boredom and fill the craving for a diary of sorts back in 2008. I've come a long, long way since then. The new blog has way more stuff, and original graphics and comics that I've started indulging in. Check it out.

So I'm officially inviting you to become members of my new blog. I'd love to have you just like I enjoyed having you on this one.

Cheers!

P-H 4

(214/365)

I'm keeping them goin' ... :) I like to make myself laugh (and hopefully other people in the process).








The end. 

P-H balance

(213/365)

Damn that writer's block. Oh well, I'll get my groove back but in the meantime, I hit a silly cartoon-making phase, and the Player-Haters (P-H) are at it again. I make no apologies for my quirkiness. I be who I be. The end.

The Queen of time wasting strikes again

(212/365)

I couldn't stop my brain and hands from teaming up again to create yet another Player-Hater cartoon. So enjoy my madness before I get serious again ... Ha! Like I'm ever serious.




The end.

Go with the unnatural flow

(211/365)

Strange how my brain works sometimes. I have SO much work to do .. then I get overloaded ... then I have to deal with a kiddo's tantrum ... then I get a bit stressed ... then, I dunno. I just go with the unnatural flow of my thought processes ... and then I end up with stuff like this:

Then end.

Autism vs. Neesha: Strike!

(210/365)

As you may know, I've been going through a rough patch with my youngest spawn who has autism. Lots of meltdowns in my kingdom of late. But I don't like to lose, so I've coined the phrase "Autism vs. Neesha" to highlight the goings on with this constant battle of two powers. Yes, I just referred to myself as a power.

I got a flyer home last week about Special Olympics Bowling. Saturday mornings 10 a.m. at an ally right by my house. Basically, if I said no to this obviously Divine intervention, I'd be the biggest jerk ever. So I snatched the opportunity to get Nabeel out in the world to mingle with folks in our shoes for a change, instead of being house potatoes. It was nice to be at a gathering where I didn't have to worry who was staring at his behavior (or my reactions to it) or giving us the sideways glances. We were among friends. He was fortunate enough to be with one of his coaches from school too! Lucky break. They were happy to see each other, and I was happy they had each other.

He did very well! And I decided to stick with it and see where it leads us. I made some new friends, as did Nabeel. Yay for a successful, scream-free day and one of fun and accomplishment. He got two new movies and a trip to McDonald's as a treat. :) Score 1 for Neesha!

I have 14 pets

(209/365)

So, this week is National Pet Peeve week. If you don't believe me, click this link I posted today on Facebook (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/zoosks-national-pet-peeve-week-survey-finds-women-have-more-pet-peeves-about-dating-than-men-131447788.html) or just Google it. In light of this glorious non-Holiday, I will embellish its recognition by listing some of my most notable pet peeves. I try to only label things as pet peeves when I see no resolution other than to just be annoyed. Hence, I try to keep an open mind. We all share this gigantic world together, so why can't we all just freakin' get along.

1. People driving below the speed limit. => WHY!????

2. When people start sentences with: "I don't mean to be rude but ...," "I don't mean to make you feel bad but ..." and so on and so forth. => YES, YOU DO MEAN TO BE RUDE AND MAKE ME FEEL BAD! OTHERWISE, YOU WOULDN'T START YOUR SENTENCE WITH THAT PREFACE!

3. Slow internet on computer or phone. => I HATE AOL AND VERIZON. THE END.

4. Unruly kids and their parents who do not reprimand them. => COME ON! YOU'RE NOT DOING THEM ANY FAVORS BY ALLOWING THEM TO BELIEVE THEY'RE ENTITLED TO GET AWAY WITH OBNOXIOUS BEHAVIOR.

5. Small talk that takes forever to get to the real point. => GET TO THE POINT BEFORE MY 90TH BIRTHDAY, PLEASE.

6. Sweet talk that isn't genuine, not necessarily romantic, but any kind. => OH, YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT ME NO MATTER WHAT, EH? (Disowned after first disagreement on at least three occasions, mmHmm.); MY FACE IS GORGEOUS AND I HAVE NATURAL BEAUTY ... BUT ... I WOULD BE MUCH BETTER OFF WITH THAT FACE CREAM YOU'RE SELLING OUT OF A CART AT THE MALL? NO THANKS, LIAR!

7. When I'm talking to someone and they don't pay full attention to me and keep turning away to attend to other things or people.

8. Sarah Palin => I CAN SEE HER EGO FROM MY HOUSE.

9. People who only contact me when they need something.

10. When people who don't speak another language try to mimic certain words in that accent. => YOUR ONE-WORD ACCENT DOESN'T MAKE YOU BILINGUAL, SO YOU CAN STOP NOW.

11. Long toe nails => EWW, THERE'S JUST NO GOOD REASON.

12. When people HAVE to say something out loud about everything they see or call out every single thing they notice. => STFU AND MIND YOUR BIZ.

13. Cliches => AT THE END OF THE DAY ...; FREE AS A BIRD; BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE; SICK AS A DOG; HIT THE GROUND RUNNING; OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD; RAINING CATS AND DOGS; and THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE are some examples of these abused phrases.

14. Outsourcing => IF I WANTED TO CHIT-CHAT WITH MY LONG LOST RELATIVES FROM THE MOTHERLAND, I'D RATHER DO IT BY CHOICE, NOT BY NECESSITY OF TROUBLESHOOTING MY TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. PEOPLE RIGHT HERE NEED JOBS!
