The site, it is a changin'

I'm not sure if any of you noticed, but my website changed.


Take a gander, people! It is no longer the laid back, blue-and-green place of soothingness that once ye knew. Now it's exciting, and dynamic, and has a cool new layout! Can you handle it?

Yes, you can! Because it's awesome! And check out that tiara sketched on my pretty little head! Don't you think I need a real tiara? I think yes!

There's all kinds of new things to enjoy, like info on Dragon Spear (coming May 12!), and an FAQ page. What's a fack page? Why, it's for Frequently Asked Questions! Although it's probably already behind in ye times, since I came up with it in October, but once we get everything all adjusted and fiddled with, I'll update it, 'kay?

So noodle around and explore! See what's new, see what's old, and let me know if you have any more FAQ's!

Howl at the Moon

The other night I was awakened at some unholy hour by a sound. It was a weird sound, a sound I couldn't quite place. It was not the sound of Boy coming in to ask for a drink of water. It was not the sound of Baby Girl in her bassinet complaining that she was starving and what do you have to do to get fed around here?! It was not the sound of Pippin jingling her collar or attempting to dig her way through the blankets and mattress to make the bed more comfortable. (She is convinced that if she could just hollow the mattress out, it will feel better to her tiny doggy bones.)

And yet there was something very doglike about it. As I came to, my mind said, that is a dog howling. So I rustled the blankets around and said, "Pippin, shh!" And then I rolled over and went back to sleep.

The next morning, Hubby started to tell me about this weird dream he had. Right as he said, "I had a weird dream," I thought of the howling in the night and assumed he was going to say, "I heard something howling in my dream." And then I would tell him that it was just our little guard dog, defending us against who-knows-what, and we would all chuckle at her antics.

But instead what he said was this:

"I dreamed that I was friends with Jason Bateman, and he wanted me to star in a remake of Teen Wolf Too with him. So he was having me practice my werewolf howling. And then I woke myself up, because I was howling aloud!"

I was flabbergasted. Never had I thought that the howling I heard in the middle of the night might be my husband!

And dreaming he was starring in Teen Wolf Too, no less! Teen Wolf Too!
