New Year with Cheezy Horror Flix

Steelmanville2 bed ben prequel

 
 
 
 

BadderBen final

 
So I have been ringing in the new year with some of the most horrible Horror Movies ever. I have a rather large list, but just today I watched this series of movies, Bad Ben, Steelmanville Road (prequel) and Badder Ben.

They were just awful, yet enthralling. The f/x were way laughable. The premise was hilarious. They characters themselves were worth a chuckle because the acting was so terrible.

The reason I stuck it out on these horrid movies was because I am a die hard ‘found footage’ movie fanatic. I love found footage movies. I have watched quite a few of them, going off of a list I found online. Some of the best ones out there, however, are subtitled due to being foreign films. I hate having to read a movie…too much chance I will visually miss something important.

We had a lovely Christmas and New Years in my household, and over this past weekend I got to meet my daughters future in-laws. They are great, and we will come together to build a fantastic family.

I have been trying to get the cats to take a picture of them in my carry on bag and duffel bags. Normal, they would be all fighting for who gets to sit in them. Now, when I want a picture of it, they are blatantly ignoring them. Little turds.

Things seem to be nice, quiet and happy here of late, and I am really enjoying it. I sent a bunch of mail out in December. Cards and letters. I got a lot in return as well. I love my pen pals. And my email buddies. Its nice to have more than just the cats to talk to, because they always turn out ignoring me to lick various parts of their bodies, or looking at me in that ‘I am cat, I am judging you’ way.

More to come soon. Been working on a few writing pieces here and there. Gaming a lot. We are at war, so that’s always fun!

Be sweet, my lovelies.

Holiday card time…

So the holiday season is upon us once again. One of my favorite things about the season is receiving mail and cards. I also really dig sending them as well, because I find some truly entertaining cards.

As I often do throughout the year, I invite you to email me your address at zoe.ambler5@gmail.com, or send me your contact info via my ‘Contact’ page. My home address is listed there as well, if you want to just jump write in and shoot me a snail mail.

I have quite a few people I correspond with now, and more is always welcome. Sometimes you may get several letters back to back, sometimes I am a little slow. However, I answer all letters, and when I send cards, they are usually pretty unique.

So please help make this old hags holidays a little brighter and become one of my pen pals. You wont regret it. ~.^

My website, zoeambler.com is once again alive! Revamped and glorious!! And, since some of you like it nice and cozy here in blogger, I will share my first post!

zoeambler.com
Re-opened, A blog is a blog is a blog?

I am happy to be back! I hope you all like my zombified theme. I will change it sooner or later, but you know me and my zombie love!

So, I will tell you all about my away time. It was pretty great!

First, I got an amazing antique 1948 Royal De-Luxe Portable Manual Typewriter. It is SO awesome! And it is in perfect working order. All it needed was some cleaning and TLC. I did some research on it and wow…so much history and so many wonderful authors used this particular typewriter. It makes me wish I knew who owned this one before me.

Second, my bestie came all the way out from New Mexico and stayed for 10 days. We had a ball. We kicked back and relaxed, went to the movies, went out to eat (raw and baked oysters, yum!) and we both cooked for one another.

While the bestie was here, we also got matching tattoos. Seahorses, because I love seahorses, and they make for very lovely watercolor style tattoos, which we both have been wanting. For me, it also serves to cover my self-mutilation scars on my arm.

Third, my mom came up from Guatemala for a visit. It was fantastic that my best friend was here to meet her. We had a nice dinner together and it was a lovely evening.

All my cats are doing great, except Jeff seems to be kind of cranky lately. It is not unusual to hear me in the middle of the night telling him to stop being a dick when he is growling at one of the other cats.
 The only one he seems cool with is BaxterMarie.

I have been writing off and on when I have time and motivation, and I have been learning the ins and outs of this new website. I have moved my site off of WordPress servers to a different hosting site. It gives me a lot more options without paying a fortune for WordPress Business. I can use premium themes and widgets and the like. Something you have to pay a small fortune for on the WordPress server.

I am terribly behind on my pen-pal letters. I was sort of waiting for a rainy day when I could sit down and type them all out on the typewriter. Remember, if you’d ever like to get snail mail, my address is on the Contact page. If you would like to hear from me first, just drop me a line in email. I love sending mail. Letters and cards…all very humorous.

With the re-opening of my blog, I will be hosting some interviews and guest bloggers. I am also striving to raise my post count on a weekly basis.

All this down time has given me some wonderful ideas for blog posts and picture sharing. I admit, I am a pretty lousy photographer with my phone, but I do snap a few cute pics here and there.

So we are back in the saddle again.

Also, I am open to any suggestion you all out there may have. Want a certain topic, or to ask a few questions? Hit me up! Want a little free publicity? Hit me up!

I am here for all of you. This site isn’t just about me and my stories and books. It’s about making friends, networking and helping others.

Tomorrow we will be covering a random topic. Perhaps about my gaming and RP world, or just something I pick out of a hat.

And before I sign off for now, allow me to give a big shout out to Michelle, Stephanie and Patricia, for always making sure I don’t go off the deep end. >.> Much love to you, ladies.

Be sweet, my darlings!

Another 30…

As you can see, the kitten, Spencer, is getting bigger. He is a mighty terror. No toes are safe. He is still small for his age, malnutrition of being seperated from his feral mother and colony so little stunting his growth. He did get that happy trip to the vet to get his man parts …snipped.

In other news, my little sisters biopsy came back positive, so now the family is pooling our resources to send what money we can for treatment.

I had a shrink appointment earlier this week that left me asking myself ‘will I ever be free from all of this’, meaning mental illness. The answer is no. No one really ‘recovers’ from mental illness.

I am also very sick right now. I had to go to the doctor yesterday for x-rays and a breathing treatment. I have bronchitis. I got myself some antibiotics and cough syrup with codiene. Cant beat that. Still feel sick, but groovy at the same time.

I have not gotten a lot of writing done lately. Nope. I found something new to waste my time on. The ground level of a new game. Beta testing and bugs. Its entertaining. Irritation in some instances, but entertaining none the less.

So thats my update for now. I know its a little pitiful, but its sort of reflecting how I feel at the moment. To all those of you I owe snail mail letters to, dont lose hope, I have things underway for those!

~squish~

A call for old fashioned letter writing!

letter-writing

Most of you know I love to practice the old school lost artform of handwritten letters.

So, I’m putting the call out there for those of you who would like to be ‘pen pals’ and ‘snail mail’ buddies.

If you would like to be put on my little list, simply email me your info to

zoe.ambler5@gmail.com
