All Quiet On the Weblog Front


Where have I been this past week? 

I've been on the Oregon coast, getting alternately wet and sunburned. I scheduled my third Avengers review for last week but neglected to schedule the second H2WaMM post, which is why it didn't appear on Friday. My apologies!

My absence can also explain why I haven't replied to comments or been to any of y'alls blogs lately.

No, they don't say y'all on the Oregon coast. In case you were wondering.


I didn't really take a lot of pictures this year. You see, I didn't bring my camera, just my phone, and I didn't want to bring my phone to the beach because I didn't want to get sand in it. So I don't have any pictures of the sights (besides the one above).

But what I did take pictures of (and please don't hate me for this) was all the misspellings I found around camp and at the museum that we went to. I know, I know, I'm so nitpicky. But some of them were amusing. Let me share:



The reward he "hopped" to earn. Maybe it's like "jumping" at a chance?


Norwegion. Perhaps it's a region in Norway.

By the way, I'm thinking of keeping the name "Norske Love" around for a possible future character in a possible future story. I like the name. It means "Norwegian lion."


Okay, this one could go either way. Site or sight. But I'm guessing that it's really supposed to say "sight."


If, of, what's the difference, ya know? Just one little letter.

Also last week I worked on filming this project:


I just threw together the trailer this morning. Not professional quality, but I think it gets the point across.

Anyways, that's what I've been up to this past week. Be prepared for part 4 of the Avengers review and part 2 of H2WaMM coming up on Wednesday and Friday. 

How was your week? Are you on vacation, or planning one soon? Ever snapped pictures of misspellings you've found? What do you think of the trailer?

  2. My family is so boring. Yep, we never go anywhere but honestly, it is okay with me. My aspirations are to see more than the states, so it is understandable why we never travel. LOL!

    We are going to see a stage production in a few weeks so that should be fun!

  3. Oh yes! Oscar is VERY funny! Poole cracks me up every time he is on screen. And the, "Our OTHER daughter," lines. Those are so funny! And I love Connie and the other gangster, I always forget his name. He acts so board half the time 8-D.
    I love the ending too! "Who are you?" "I'm Oscar!" "Get rid of him...expeditiously!"

    I am glad you are looking forward to the trailer, I hope you like it. I can't wait till we actually get around to making it, I'm excited to see how he is going to put it all together.

  4. Those misspellings are funny and sad at the same time.

    I have an award for you on my blog. Feel free to hop over and pick it up :D

    1. I think the memorial plaque is the saddest. :)

  5. Well I guess there's my answer about pics, huh? I LOVE the photos you've posted though - I'm one of those freaks who actually get a rush when I find misspellings in books I'm reading. Or on signs. Or placards. Or anywhere else that shouldn't have a misspelled word in it.

    EXCEPT on my own blog. Whenever I write a post, I check it and check it and check it... then I publish it and check it and check it and check it. Then three days later I go back...and find a misspelled word or two or three. Grrrr.

    Your trailer! Ha! Love it!
