Twenty One Pilots and Oil

Hey, y’all! So, yesterday I changed the oil in my truck, and AJA to a Twenty One Pilots concert (without me, yes I know it was cruel). 

Anyway, that’s all this time, just wanted to share that fun adventure. 

Keep your hands in the quicksand and the tires on the roof! 🙂 😛 😉 😀 ❤

Blurbs, Summaries, and Words

HAPPY WEEKEND! It’s always weekend when we post, but this has been a good weekend. Hey, y’all! I want to quote the Brantley Gilbert song “The Weekend,” but I cannot remember a relevant line. I want to make a joke about the musical artist The Weekend now (now that ACG has brought up music), and why Snapchat is insistent on telling me he’s dating Selena Gomez!!! Buuuuut that’s not what this post is about.

 

Nope. It’s been a while since we talked about our stories and personal projects. Therefore, tonight we want to share what we’re working on currently. Instead of us summarizing our own projects, we thought we’d summarize each other’s with no rebuttal from that person, no chance to really explain 😉. I’m nervous about this, but let’s do it!

 

AJA likes to write contemporary, and she actually finishes those stories. I don’t understand, but she does. From YouTubers to photographers, she’s done multiple things. Right now, though, she’s writing about real people with serious problems. Her main characters all have mental illnesses, and they are really struggling. It isn’t like some stories that make it seem pretty or cool or fun; it is raw and painful to read at times because of how it shows the characters hurting. These girls (and guy) don’t want to be defined by what they are dealing with and each have a method to try and do that. Different ages, personalities, and interests, all of them are trying to do the best they can with the cards they’ve been dealt, and her story is about 2/3s through and showing that well. I’m so glad to be allowed to witness this sister queen’s writing (and all the other writings she’s shared in the past)!!!

 

How to describe ACG’s current project? Hmm… I do not recall if we have ever described it on this blog before or not. This project is the final “book” (manuscript) in a trilogy. Therefore, I’m leaving out a lot of background information. That being said… Basically a chick’s dead not-brother husband comes back to life after she’s gotten involved with a new dude and given birth to the not-brother, no-longer-dead ex-ish husband’s child. The chick is also a political figure for their “country.” It’s fantasy, so the terms that would be used don’t make sense in real life, so “country.” So was her not-brother husband…since he was kind of her brother and kind of her husband. That being said, everyone has accepted his death and moved on…sorta, so the new guy and the chick are planning to get married.Then not-brother husband comes back and derails those plans. The chick is kind of afraid of not-brother husband with good reason. He pitches a couple fits. He’s very aggressive and needs to be punched very hard. She tries hide her relationship with the new guy, and her child is very uncomfortable around his biological dad because he doesn’t know him and considers the new guy his dad. Basically the overall plot is: how do we react to dead not-brother husband’s return and get married and interact and blah blah blah. It’s all very awkward and dramatic. But really well written and I’m in love with the new guy. It’s great, and I am proud of ACG for writing this much/almost being done with three consecutive, full manuscripts.

 

I hope you got a sense of what we spend most of our free time doing (or pretending to do). 😉

 

Keep your stories on sealions and your fish on shelves!!! 🙂 ❤ 😀 😉 😛

Drive safely ❤

Tradition Runs Deep

Tradition. Rich, deep, and all encompassing.

 

Hey, y’all! Hopefully last night was the start of a new tradition (we can already say it was the celebration of a very old one–98 years to be exact!)  for at least the next few years. I hope to continue past that, but ACG can ditch if she’d like. 😉 Thank you very much, few is not specific. I plan to hang around.

 

It was great and a ton of fun. The music was great and so were the costumes. The nuns and the witch were the best part. 😉 Also the kicking plot of one of the shows we saw. The cowboys (I preferred the king… the first king… the purple king)  and references to other musicals weren’t so bad either. 😀

 

I have to say it was a terrific experience, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to see the shows…three times. #) Also, I’m thankful for ACG driving safely to come see them with me. It was phenomenal, and even if I have only seen it once, I don’t think I’ll forget it anytime soon.

 

So, keep your thumbs in the air, and your mighty cows in the trophy case. 🙂 😀 😉 😛 ❤ :O 🙂 O.o

 

(And in case you didn’t catch it, drive safely. <3)

Battery Life

Hey, y’all! I’m back, and never meant to be gone quite so long, but I’m back now and much more fit company. 😀 SHE LIVES!!! Also, I at least sort of have my affairs worked out.

 

Both of those things together mean that we were out adventuring today. And of course every adventure has a plot twist. After a day of a cookie and ice cream, a moody fifteen year old, and visiting two different stores to find plastic needles (long story that involves a homemade crossbow target), we discovered ours. Thanks to said moody fifteen year old, when we returned from the second store trip there was little to no battery left in the vehicle.

 

Parents were called, and that turned into a race between the parents (both of mine vs. ACG’s dad), tracked by GPS on our phones. Her parents won by a hair and brought one of the best inventions ever (a portable generator to jump off vehicles or pump up tires). Thus concludes the adventure of today. We arrived home safely, and I am very thankful to her parents for bringing the generator and my dad for coming and making sure I was okay, too.

 

That was our adventure, and hopefully everyone had their own adventure for the day! Keep your shoes in the bathtub and your pillows in the cabinet. 😀 ❤ O.o 😛 🙂

 

Drive safely and, remember, keep your batteries charged! ❤
