Pets

In the last few years I picked up two snakes in addition to the box turtle and the tortoise I already owned as a child. Growing up turtles were my favorite animal but I like my snakes much more as pets than my turtles. Snakes are much easier to cuddle than a turtle. Also, I had to divide the turtle exclosure in my backyard in two to keep the box turtle from biting and harassing the tortoise. My Mom put her foot down after I brought my Kenyan sand boa home in January, saying no more animals.

Eventually when I do move out I will take the snakes with me. The turtles will be staying with her.

I still want a kitty of my own though.

Home at last

Its been a long summer and boy am I glad to be back in the desert. And with the glorious monsoon storms we've been experiencing the last week and a half, I couldn't have picked a better time to come home. My new job chasing squirrels and doing veg plots on Mt. Lemmon is going great so far and on Friday I had the privilege of seeing a black-tailed rattlesnake and a black-necked gartersnake in the Molino Basin area.

its hard to keep up a blog with so many other distractions demanding  one's attention: paperbacks, ffn, facebook, video games, ect. 

Oh well, at least I'm keeping up with my weekly Labyrinth D&D drabbles this time around,

Yeah, not much activity here on my end. Long story short, a got a job mist netting birds and doing point count surveys in CO this summer came back and was unemployed till Nov 11 when I started work at Macy's as a seasonal sales associate. Come 2012 I'm back to being unemployed and looking for work, but that hasn't stopped me from looking for wildlife technician jobs all this time. During my free time I have been devouring countless library books and have been reading massive amounts of fan fic along with the occasional hike and birdwalk. I also have gotten involved with a 20-30s Social Meetup group here in Tucson. Going to an Ugly X-mas Party and Cookie X-change tomorrow.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Dreams and Dreamers drabble

Prompt: Hurt

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. She was the one who was supposed to have the happy ending. Not her, that deceitful impersonation that wore her face.

Everyday she watched as her reflection lived her life, got the attention and love from her family and friends, the aching hollowness consuming her a bit more. The other Sarah always wore an expression of kindness, hiding the cruelty underneath.

It was she the true Sarah who was left behind, trapped along with the other’s discarded dreams, on the other side of the mirror.

The Goblin King came up behind her, “you need to let that life go. We’re no longer a part of hers.”

“I know,” she replied, turning around to face the only one that could make the hollowness go away, “bit it hurts so much to be abandoned so carelessly.”

“I never will abandon you,” he promised, “even as the world falls down.” 

She turned and wept in his arms, as they slowly faded from the old vanity mirror, ghosts left behind by Sarah’s mirrorself. 
--------------------------------

Yeah I know it’s a bit longer than 100 words but for once I had to write a bit more to get the full story across. I still want to write what happened to Sarah that led up to this point, but it might be a bit till I find an appropriate prompt to do so.

Labyfic weekly drabble dump

Here are all the drabbles I have written for the group [info]labyfic weekly drabbles. I started with #14 (Chase) and 15 (Leaves) and then went back and did the first four of them (Danger, Spoiled, Chance and Gift) and then wrote the newest one (#16: Fair) and posted them on my Fanfiction.net account under the title Dreams and Dreamers (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6415876/1/Dreams_and_Dreamers).

I'm also posting Danger, Spolied, Chance, Gift and Fair for those of you who haven't read the [info]labyfic
 one-word challenges or my collection on fanfiction.net
