*I - don't care - what they - SQUIRREL! *

That's probably my favourite line in this, but I adore so many moments in this cover of Frozen's "Let it go".  Listened to it a couple times already so I could hear it with and without the video.  I definitely recommend doing that so you get the full experience.

Maleficent  

Of all the Disney villains, I have to say Maleficent scared me the most as a child.  Sleeping Beauty is also one of my favourites of the classics.... probably for that reason.  

That said...

Her voice gave me flashbacks of chills from my childhood of her.  Scary the similarities (and impressive).  I'm really hopeful about this.  Though, perhaps I should make sure I bring a blanket to cover my head with if she brings back too many flashbacks!  lol

Happy Halloween!

Or perhaps I should say, 'Halloween, happy to you!'

We didn't dress up officially at work today, but I couldn't resist.  I wore the Yoda ears I made for Star Wars Weekends at Disney anyway.  Quite a minor costume for me for Halloween, but it still counts!  

What are your plans for Halloween?  Trick or treating with kids?  Costume party?  Something else?  Did you dress up?  

PS Yes, that is my cube... but no.. it's not my birthday.  I should probably pull that down since my birthday was in June.... oops?

Psst.... the head elf himself is waking up for the rush to come.  Are you ready for +Secret Santa to come to town?
 
Yawwwnnnn! Looks like it's almost time to start working again...

Ho ho ho! The leaves are changing, pumpkin spice lattes are back in coffee shops, and I can sense that people are already starting to think about their Christmas lists. Yup. It looks like me, #SecretSanta , and the elves are gearing back to bring you joy, love, and gifts in 2013 for a 3rd year! Can you believe it? More to come... :)

Help a Military Wife Keep her Home 

This is a friend of one of my longtime friends.  As it turns out, they're by the same base my brother in law is stationed at.  So, while I don't know them personally, it hits close to home for me both because of our mutual friend and their geographical location.  

If you can help in even the smallest amount, I know they would greatly appreciate it.  Having a bridge between now and their benefits kicking in would relieve a lot of stress at such a time.  

It is with great sadness that SGT Michael DeVlieger lost his battle with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) on September 5, 2013 He is survived by wife Christine and two daughters ages 10 and 4. Christine needs assistance to stay in the home they had built together until the veteran/social security benefits kick in. Veteran and social security benefits can take months to obtain.

+Secret Santa has woken up from his long summer's nap refreshed and ready to get to work checking and collecting his lists!  Luckily, everyone who submits theirs is on the nice one, not the naughty one!  

#gplussanta  
 
Secret Santa 2013 starts today!
Share this post so we can collect as many lists as possible!

HO HO HO! It's good to be back! Last year Secret Santa only lasted for less than a month and were able to collect over 2,500 lists! 1,500 more than 2011! Your generosity and compassion giving gifts to the Google+ community made holidays better last year. Today I'm happy to announce that my elves and I start collecting your Amazon wishlists into our master list. It's easy to create a list! The hardest part is deciding what to put on it ;)

Just follow these simple steps:
1) Create your public wishlist on Amazon: http://goo.gl/eUIwm
2) Add your list to the form: http://goo.gl/03TwI8 (Important instructions are on the form!)

Once added you can continue to edit your list. We'll share everyone's list with you on November 25th! We suggest waiting to share your list until then so people have the holidays in mind ;) For now, get that wishlist together!

Remember, we're all #SecretSanta ! #GPlusSanta  is happy to be back.

At my Alma Mater, +Full Sail University for +Adobe #createnow - hoping it's as interesting as I'm thinking it will be!

Quite surreal to think it was only 5 years ago I was a student here. Its changed so much! Some things never change though... Had to get a chai tea latte for as I walked the campus.

Jane Eyre  

This is one of my favourite books.  It always has been and I tend to get a lot of strange looks for how much I adore the story about Jane and her Mr Rochester... to the extent that I hear criticism from time to time about how weak Jane is as a character.  

This article has 11 very good reasons why that is not true.  

I couldn't agree more with the writers statement that if you have not read this book, particularly if you are a woman, you should.  It has quite a few themes in it that apply to today's world and not just the Victorian one it is set in.  Yes, there's many things that can make you think it is a story about a weak woman, but there are just as many that have you walking away from the book admiring Jane.

all american rejects

so last year +Jake Easley and +Steve Hale had this great idea that we all dress up in tutus and take shots of ourselves and post them...it was called #thedirtytutu and was a ton of fun

this year they have a new challenge for us which you can read about below
____________________________________________________________
We have a new one.  This year we have decided we would go with #superherorejects  .  What does that mean?  It means take a damn picture of yourself as a superhero that would have been rejected.  There are two rules: have fun AND post your pictures on October 8th.  Tag them with #superherorejects  so we can follow them.  It is extremely important that you help pass the word.  It got out really well last year but still there were those who didn't know until it was too late.  I'm calling on you guys - TELL OTHERS, LETS HAVE FUN. 
____________________________________________________________

so that means grab that cape and tights and leap into action and post a shot of your less-than hero

...enjoy

About a week left of sorting season!  
 
Hey, Potterheads! 

VH is sorting!  This is the Harry Potter RPG I talk about occasionally that has an amazing quidditch and dueling system (two games within the game!).  I've been a member myself for over ten years and can honestly say it's the best one I've seen - particularly if you like writing.  The writers that are there are amazing and it gives you a great exercise in character development.  I know it's helped mt to come out of a shell on my characters!

PS If you received a notification, it is because I learned at some point that you like Harry Potter.  If you'd like removed from this circle, please feel free to ask!

Story
Tagline
Graphic designer & social media lover with a slight obsession with ducks, Stargate, & Harry Potter.
Introduction
As it says above, I'm a graphic designer and social media lover.  However, like anyone else, its hard to summarize yourself in so few words that above or even here will allow.  Take a look at some of my public posts and you'll learn more about me there than you ever will here.  

However!

For those in a hurry, here's a few words of obsessions:

Artist
Designer
Pleasure Writer (NaNoWriMo, Virtual Hogwarts, Twitter/G+, etc)
Business Writer (Blogging, Copywriting/editing, Tweets, etc)
Photographer
Semi-Movie Buff
Dancer
Singer
Musician
Tennis Player
Girl Gamer
Jogger
Ducks
Stargate
Harry Potter

I love to travel and want to see quite a few more places in my lifetime.  To date, I've traveled abroad to Egypt, United Kingdom, France, plus places closer to home in the Eastern US and the Caribbean. Learning about other cultures while doing so and seeing the history surrounding them first hand is my favourite part. 

Also, I love my job. Contributing to something that makes the lives of a group of people in our country better is great even when I'm not a direct member of that community, simply a friend of it.  Beyond the professional experience, it's been an educational one as I hear both the good and bad reactions to what we do from business owners.  If you'd like to see some of what I get up to, circle the Gay USA Pages.  

Opinions posted here on my profile are my own and not that of Diversified Exposure, Inc/Gay USA Pages or any other company I'm associated with.
