Comments off

I've turned off comments. I already feel bad enough about what I said on Tuesday and I know the liberals would love to rub it in. I beat myself up all the time about it, I don't need others to beat me up as well. I was told that I really hurt my reputation but I never thought I had a reputation to begin with. Liberals will think that I've turned chicken by doing this and that I don't really want to debate. Well I just will have to disappoint them. I started this blog for myself and if I have to continue it with just myself then that's just the way it will have to be.

Wow

The new trailer for Spider Man 3 is out at IFilms. It rocks. Talk about a sweet looking movie. This is one movie I cannot wait for. I will be there the first day.

I was thinking

I was thinking that maybe after my extreme overreaction to the election on Tuesday, that I should comment less on politics and more on other things. Getting away from so much politics might be a good thing. There's a lot more to life and my interests than politics.

I will continue to mention and post political thoughts. I have to. Politics is definitely one of my interests but thinking about them all the time like I did for this election is what got me into trouble. I'm also a gamer and a reader. I will now try to post my thoughts on games that I'm playing and what I think about them and books that I'm reading and what I think about them. I'm also going to get back to talking about my martial arts. This site is named after one of the most colorful and exciting Kung Fu styles. I shouldn't have drifted away from it.

I'm currently re-playing "Knights of the Old Republic" by Bioware. This is one of the classic games for the XBox. I also just purchased the new game "Gears of War" and will begin playing it in the very near future. I will let you know what I think as I go along.

The book I'm currently reading is "Star Wars:The Last Command," by Timothy Zahn. As you can tell I love Star Wars. There are a huge number of Star Wars books published and this book and the other two books in its series are among the best in the genre. Actually with the exception to the movie tie-in books and a few books like "Splinter of the Mind's Eye," and The Adventures of Lando Calrissian and The Adventures of Han Solo books, this series, I think, are the first three books in the current crop of Star Wars books. Star Wars books have there own seperate shelf areas in the science fiction sections of most bookstore. I haven't bought the three new Star Wars books that have recently been published, "Betrayal," "Bloodlines," and "Path of Destruction:A Novel of the Old Republic." I just don't have the money. I will probably have to wait until they come out in trade paper or even get one used or even have to wait until I find one in used trade paper. Oh, well but I do have a lot to keep me entertained until then.

Enough (with updates)

Enough is enough. Yes, I know my Masters of Science Degree is in Writing but my emphasis was in Book Publishing not in Creative Writing. I have never claimed to be a writer. I know what my limitations are and writing is just not a skill that I possess. I love to read. I have hundreds of books, ranging from science fiction (a lot of those) to mysteries to history and so on, but the thought of writing one myself is just beyond me. My interests in Publishing has never been editing or writing. I want to be a Designer or even go into Bookselling. One of my dream jobs is to work in or operate a bookstore. I think I would enjoy being a Buyer for some bookstore somewhere. At least I'd get a chance to get all the free Readers Copies the publishing houses send to Buyers.

Also, how many other famous writers out there make mistakes. I would love to see an unedited manuscript by some famous writer. Even the best make mistakes, full of grammatical errors, poor word choice, run on sentences and poor sentence structure.

Update: You know, I was wrong about fussing at you for telling me about another mistake I made in my spelling and grammar in a past post. I'm keeping what I just wrote up so that I can show I'm not trying to hide anything as others accuse me of. Thank you Alek for pointing out my goof. Once you showed me, I spotted what I did wrong, right away. Please help keep me honest. I take what you said in the spirit of a stern but honest teacher pointing out what I did wrong in the hope that I will learn from my mistake and that it only make me a better writer and blogger. Enough is not enough. Thank you.

Thanks Charles Johnson

Last night as some of you know I went totally unhinged. I won't go into what I said because I don't want to repeat it. Charles Johnson over at LGF accepted my sincere apology and deleted the nasty posts I left over there. I appreciate that. He is a true gentleman. I still am very embarrassed by writing the word "quite" when I should have written "quit." What a stupid mistake for someone who just got her Masters in Writing with a 3.5 GPA. I was a very good student and usually I'm good at spelling. Last night Marian was not here. Yeah, maybe that's it. I went far, far away and something else took my place. I was playing "Knights of the Old Republic" for XBox and maybe a bit of the Dark Side of the Force reached out and took me over. Well, I'm back on the Light Side now. I can't promise I won't get angry again and I do have a bit of a temper, but I'll try not to go that bad again. Stop me if I do, please.

A very large I'm sorry

I said some very bad things tonight. I just wanted to apologize for them.

When a man like David Frum, whose work I've read and admire sends me a reply castigating me for, not just my bad spelling of the word quit but what I said, then I know I've really gone off the deep end. I'm not really this bad. I'm usually a very easy going type person.

I'm sorry. I can't take back all that I said but I can ask that those of you who I haven't alienated to please forgive me.
I've deleted those posts so they are no longer to be found on my blog. I'm not quitting. I can't now. I just wonder if all the posts that were from Anonymous were from one person or several people.

Thank God for "Lurch" Kerry

Thank God for John "Lurch" Kerry. He is the gift for the Republican party that just keeps on giving. He has just assured a Republican victory on Tuesday. Keep on talking, buddy. What you have to say is much appreciated.
