A spooky salutations everyone!
Yeah, yeah, I know, Halloween is over, but I still couldn't help myself.
I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Halloween.
I saw lots of cute princesses, fairies, Spidermen, Na'vi, and so many others. It was fun seeing the kids dressed up like that. Brings back lots of memories of when I used to do that!
Also, I wanted to thank EVERYONE who wished me a happy birthday on the 21st. You all know who you are.
It was so sweet, thank you so very, very much. My birthday was quiet, but then again, there's not much to do in a small town.
I also wanted to mention that I'm still getting wonderful reviews on my latest story, An Angel's Prayer. For everyone who've had the decency to read and comment...thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I know my writing isn't the world's best, but I'm learning, and my biggest dream is to one day go into a bookstore and see rows and rows of my books on the shelves, and lines of people waiting to buy them!
I also got a great advice about being careful not to keep "repeating" some of my sentences and words in my story. I didn't even realize I did that.
But again, thanks, for those of you amazing enough to have read and commented.
Okay, this might be kind of old news, but for those of you who didn't know, I just HAD to share this with everyone!
There's a clip from the long-running PBS show Sesame Street which shows an ethnic puppet singing about how she loves her hair. I read up on it, and it turns out one of the producers of Sesame Street had adopted a little girl from the country of Ethiopia in the African continent. One day, the little girl commented about she wished she had long, pretty hair like other White girls. He felt bad, so he decided to come up with the ethnic puppet girl to make his adopted daughter feel better. You can take a look at the wonderful clip here:

It's just so sweet and adorable.
I grew up in New York City, and I've had many, many Black American girlfriends I hung out with, and I was always so fascinated about how they did their hair and the many styles they came up with, especially braids...which I totally love.
So yeah, just thought I'd share that.
Okay, there's a movie coming out that I think looks SO awesome, that I'd definitely going to check it out. It's called The Warrior's Way, and basically, it's about a former assassin who is one of the best in Japan....then one day, he is told to assasinate an entire clan. He reluctantly does it...but couldn't bring himself to kill the last member, a baby boy. He takes the baby and flees to the American West (Texas, I believe), but is followed by the ninja clan he used to be part of. Please check out the clip for yourself, it's amazing:

I'm totally going to check that out.
Alright, that's about it with me. Thanks for all your support, those of you who took the time to comment and fave anything in my gallery. You really made it worth being here.
Stay tuned, and for those in America, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
