kelly sue celebrates passover the #teamhawkguy way

Hate to say it, but she’s no Kate Bishop.

Don’t you sass me, child. 
I’m a 42 year old mother of 2. Yesterday, I *slept in* until 4:30am, got my babies up and fed, planned an Easter brunch menu, finished a batch of rewrites, worked all day writing more comics than you, managed to sneak in 30 minutes on the treadmill and a quick shower before grabbing my hilarious and brilliant husband, two amazing children and double-batch potluck dish and heading to a seder at the home of two of our best friends, where I *rocked* playing with my daughter and her new bow & arrow out on the porch.  
Kate Bishop is great. I love Kate. But she’s a fiction, sweetheart, and she’s no fucking me. 

Damn straight!
Also, those shoes are to die for.

We All Have Things We Wish We Could Take Back

… like that character fiction post to Google Groups, with the random switches to present tense and handful of missing letters. Please come back and I promise to treat you right!

Have no regrets! I’m enjoyed it so much I didn’t even notice them!

“In my mind I am eloquent; I can climb intricate scaffolds of words to reach the highest cathedral ceilings and paint my thoughts. But when I open my mouth, everything collapses.” 
― Isaac MarionWarm Bodies

I know that feel, but you do a great job!  I love your writing.

And now I see with eye serene
The very pulse of the machine;
A being breathing thoughtful breath,
A traveller between life and death:
The reason firm, the temperate will,
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill;
A perfect Woman, nobly plann’d
To warn, to comfort, and command;
And yet a Spirit still, and bright
With something of an angel light.

W. Wordsworth

Story Time!

I ran across this poem during a lit class in college and fell in love with it. To the extent that I printed out a small copy of it and kept it in a hollow key fob that I had. I was once asked by halogencat why I had it and I told her that “I was going to give it to the person I wanted to marry as my proposal.” This was before we were dating, mind you.

Fast forward a couple of years and now we have been dating for a while and we go up visit my family for my Grandfather’s 85th birthday party. halogencat is getting ready in her hotel room and I stop by to keep her company. (She will probably reply to this and make fun of my particular timing and choice of location) I told her I had a surprise for her and asked her to close her eyes and hold out her hands. She put them out, cupped, and I put the poem in there and told her to open her eyes. 

She unrolled the poem and looked at it. “What’s this?”

"Do you remember what I said about that poem?"

"You said you were going to use it to propose OH!"

Then I pulled out the ring.

Funslayer is the romantic in our relationship.  When I tell this story it is:

"Mike proposed to me in the bathroom of a hotel. I was putting on mascara and not paying attention."

But seriously, he is the sweetest.  He always has the most thoughtful gifts, he remembers everything, and he is generally wonderful.  Which is good, because I move through life like a clumsy, distracted hummingbird… “I love you honey - is that a flower?” *crashes into a window*

you could kill a man in any of these dresses, and pretty sure no jury would convict you. those are killing-men dresses, that’s what i’m saying

Where do I place an order for any and all of them? Also a poison ring to accessorize with.

Hey! Banned Books Week is coming up starting this Sunday! This year has a focus on banned comics & graphic novels.
If you are looking for some resources to spread the word or to run events, you should head over to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund website where they have lots of stuff including two free downloadable posters you can print up to help promote BBW. I did the design above.
Oh yeah, and something else you could do for BBW is read Americus, by MK Reed and myself, which is all about book banning, censorship, and coming of age. 

Celebrate your freedom to read!

Shashka dances. 

The Shashka is a blade most famously used by the Cossacks. Adapted from a similar blade originating from the Circassians, the Shashka resembles a delicately curved sabre with a single-handed grip, no guard, and a curved pommel. 

Bananas.

I went from ‘entranced’ to ‘inappropriately turned on’ at the exact second she started dual-wielding.  God.

This reminds me of swords in color guard.  Of course, our blades couldn’t cut you… but our glances could!

Answer all the questions and then pass it on to 10 of your followers. I was tagged by: lizaleigh

Nickname: Annie.  No really, that’s not actually my name.  Other popular family names are Wombat, for reasons unknown, and Hummingbird, because I apparently flutter around.

Birthday: March 13
Gender: Female.
 

Sexuality: Straight. I absolutely appreciate how beautiful and sexy women are, but it’s really just men for me.

Height: 5’4” Right on the boarder between petite and regular.  Hem all the pants! All of them!

Time Zone: EST

Time and Date where you are: 10:41am on September 5

Average hours you sleep: 8, provided the kids don’t wake me up in the middle of the night.

OTP’s: So many. I probably have one for every book I’ve ever read or show I’ve ever watched.  I have a very rich imagination. 

Last thing I googled: ”St. Tiggywinkles hedgehog sanctuary” 

First word that comes to mind: Spreadsheet

My most used phrase(s): ”Perfect”, “I’m sorry”, and “Stop licking the baby”

Last thing you said to a family member: ”We should go. Let’s hop a plane.”  Sent to my sister, regarding the above mentioned hedgehog sanctuary.

A place that makes you happy and why:  Sunbeams.  Sitting in sunbeams anywhere, at any time, makes me feel cheerful and warm.

How many blankets do you sleep under: 0-2 depending on how cold it is in the room.  I usually have a dog sleeping next to me, which keeps my feet warm.

Favorite beverage (drink): Diet Coke.  I have a problem. 

Last movie seen in the cinemas: Guardians of the Galaxy.  Mike and I actually had a date night!

Something I plan on learning:  To French Braid hair.  I have a couple more years, and then Mayhem will have hair long enough.  Also, I keep pretending that I’m going to really study Italian one day.

Advice to my followers:  On average, flight prices are lowest if you book 3 months before your trip.  After that, it is best to book 3 weeks ahead.
