Some good stuff & some sad stuff

This is another gorgeous pic I found at Glitter Graphics. It was made by lunargoddess. She's got some lovely faerie stuff.

Last night I was cruising the site looking for faerie pics. I'm trying to find inspirational pics for the next two faeries I want to write stories about. They'll both be set in Breena and Sydney. I'm very excited about changing the POV, too.

I did find a bunch of lovely pics. I just need to go through them, to see if any capture the two fae.

Last night while the hubby was online, he found out that Chris Benoit and his family were found dead inside their home. Eddie Guerrero passed away almost two years ago now, and I was shocked to hear about Benoit. Chris Benoit was one of the better wrestlers. I enjoyed watching him in WCW and even in WWE, but now he's gone. He didn't die of natural causes, though they were still suspicious. It's been ruled a murder-suicide, and gives me goosebumps every time I think about it. If you'd like to find out a little more, check it out here. It's awful, awful news.

I used to be a huge wrestling fan. We even went to an event when I was six months pregnant. But for a long while now, I've had no real interest in it. I catch a few snippets here and there, watch some of the DVDs that are released. But for the most part, I just don't agree with the direction it's taking. I'll always have fond memories of it from when I was a kid, though. And also great memories of the hubby and I enjoying WCW on Saturday nights. There's still a lot of talent out there too, I especially like RVD and John Cena, but can't watch the entire show without cringing. Still, it's always very sad to hear about one of them passing away. :(

Onto more exciting things. I got the second draft of my SciFi story done yesterday afternoon. Yay! The only problem is that while I was walking to pick my daughter up, something hit me. A new thread that wants to be weaved into the plot! Now, unfortunately this will mean more work on the tale... but I believe that it will strengthen the story in general. So, it looks like when I tackle the third draft, there'll be a little more work than I first expected. Oh, and the title popped into my head while I was doing the dishes. Can you believe that? Lol.

FAERIE #3 has left the building. Or at least, it's been emailed in. Heeeee. Heeeee. Wish me luck. :)

The teacher interview went great yesterday, too. Apparently, as I suspected, my daughter's a little angel when she's at school. I even found out she's quite the organiser while she's there and always cleans up after herself. Hmmm. That's strange, because at home I usually have to nag her to do those things. Still, she's developing very well and I'm very proud of her reading. I think it's very important that she reads a lot. I just wish some of that lovely behaviour spilled out no matter where she is. :/

That graphic is gorgeous! As for the WWE wrestler's death, I read the news last night and it was so sad.

Thanks Tempest! I'm finding some lovely pics over at Glitter Graphics.

And I know, it is sad... but I've read more details now, and I'm more shocked than anything. It sounds so surreal, that he did something so terrible to his family. :(
