Am having a burning-incense, listening-to-new-age-music, reading-about-Hindu-faeries kind of day.

I just wrote another 1.5k on a project I'm not supposed to be working on because I'm supposed to be revising something else. I was never good at supposed.

Kiddo has been to a hockey match before, but the last one he was too young to remember. He's really nervous about being so high up. ::g::

I'm well aware the Fast and Furious films aren't great examples of either script writing or acting, but they're super-fun and I'm happy to hear there will be three more.
Who needs just Fast 8 when you can have Fast 8, Fast 9 and Fast 10?! Vin Diesel took to Instagram...

There's nothing like spilling seed beads all over the floor to make me remember to loathe having carpet. I'm drowning in negativity today.

A blog post for +The Scriptors​ in which I babble about words, society, and creating a language for the novel I'm planning.

I think +Lindsey Clements​ might know someone who might be interested in this...
 
Around the world, coral reefs are in decline. To protect these precious ecosystems, scientists must study different reef organisms and their feeding relationships in the food web. It is unknown how the feeding behavior of reef sharks affects the coral reef food web. In order to understand this information, scientists must first understand the feeding behavior of sharks. 

Join the +National Aquarium live from their shark tank and the +Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation for an exciting Hangout on Air. We will talk to leading shark experts above and below the water to learn how reef sharks feed in the wild and in an aquarium setting. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by National Aquarium. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Yeah, I figured that was Old Tucson.  8)

A bit of trivia for you.  Saguaro cacti, the ones that you see standing as tall green columns, don't grow their first arms until they're seventy or eighty years old.  And the breed only grows in the Sonoran desert, which is Arizona, a very small part of Nevada, and the Mexican state of Sonora. 

So when you see those old John Wayne movies, and they tell you it's Texas, but you see the Saguaro in the background?  You know they were shot at Old Tucson.

Introduction
Andrea Brokaw is the author of the Austen-inspired YA novel Pride, Prejudice, and Curling Rocks and the YA paranormal romances I'd Rather Not Be Dead and Of Fur and Ice. She's also a dreamer, a skier, a curler, an NFL fan, and a homeschooling mom. As a Navy brat and then a Navy wife, she's lived on three continents, in four countries, in seven states, and in thirteen towns. (Or something like that. She loses count.) She has two cats and a thirteen-year-old boy.  Andy has a collection of acronyms, including GAD, ADHD, and PMLE. That basically means that she's clinically diagnosed with worrying too much, not paying attention to things, and not being able to play in the sun. In addition to writing novels for publication, Andy posts short fiction on Andy's Stories and writes web-serials under the name Aurora Talisan. (Her current story, Washed Up, starts here.) Andy's interest-based circles are listed in this post. Please visit and leave a comment if you want in a particular circle, or Andy may never notice you to circle you. (She's ADHD, remember? She doesn't notice a lot of stuff.) If she's the one who circled you and you have no idea why, hopefully the post will help make that more clear.
