“The difference between mouth to mouth and a kiss is intent.”
I have had that above sentence pending in a post on here since Mar 26, 2014 7:15 AM
Not sure where I was going with it back then, but it works.
I never intended for this blog to die off, but the road to hell and all that. 2014-2017 is a long break.
But, here I am! Back, in some capacity. I have been trying to write in a diary every day, but perhaps I can do this instead?
So, Hi! If we haven’t met before, I am Lena. I am a lot of things, as you will probably learn as we go though I am: polyamorous, pansexual, married to a lovely man whom I live with (along with our dogs and cats), dating another pretty spiffy guy (who’s wife is a pretty good friend of mine) a hearse driver, and I have quite a few things I really rather enjoy or love doing. I work with at risk and abused youth. I am a pretty open book, but I expect you to be respectful no matter what you are asking me/we are talking about.
I don’t have much else to add at this point, so cheers boos and ghouls!
Hello sweethearts! I am SO excited! Summoned is now on sale! The following is my review (once it goes live on Amazon I will link to it instead since it has a bit of spoilers in it). After the review is an excerpt, but you can go buy it on Amazon.com $0.99!
Dimitri is a sarcastic twenty-three year old, with a huge secret- he is controlled by a paranormal bond that ensures he has to do whatever is wished for by his “master”.Dimitri, or Dim, is a genie. Or djinn if you rather.
We all grew up with I Dream of Jeannie, and/or Aladdin as our basis for what a genie is supposed to do, or look like. Well, I love and hate to break it to you but Dim is NOT that kind of genie! I would rather have him around than Jeannie or Robin Williams’ lively blue Genie (Unless I am on the receiving end of a wish!) Don’t get me wrong- I love them both. I just love Dim more!
I love that this is a new take on the genie/master relationship, there is a bit of magic but otherwise Dimitri is a “normal” person. He is just like you and me, except he HAS to do whatever his Master wishes. The characters are believable, the story is well written, the world is one could clearly see and feel in my head. story all tied together leaving me (mostly) satisfied with the ending. I say mostly, because I REALLY didn’t want the book to end- I wanted it to keep going. Thankfully, Ms. Kaye is continuing the series!
If you don’t like steamy sex scenes, violence, and cursing then stay away from Dim and his world. If you don’t mind those, and like paranormal based stories then read Summoned! This… I… wish!

I am so very excited to share with you the cover of Summoned by Rainy Kaye! I am *almost* done reading this for myself, and am loving the story! I will be posting a review of it on April 3rd, … Continue reading →
So I noticed this new campaign that Beyonce has started called Ban Bossy. If you are unfamiliar with it, here is the website: http://banbossy.com/
The whole thing can be summed up in their description; “When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead.”
Sounds great, right? I am ALL for empowering young ladies and women (boys and men, too! Equality here. ) of any age- but instead of trying to ban words like bossy, shouldn’t we be teaching them it is okay to be powerful, and that sometimes you will be met with opposition? We need to be teaching ALL children that sometimes mean words will be thrown your way, and we need to teach them how to cope with that. We don’t need to “ban bossy” to turn the next generation into leaders.
It would serve the next generation better to help them build greater self worth and self esteem- so that being called bossy simply bounced off. Much like the old childhood rhyme “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you!”
What do you think about the “Ban Bossy” movement? I would love to hear what you think!
I finally settled on a name for my blog, it has taken me awhile but I had good reason to debate it. This blog isn’t going to be about just one thing, it is going to be about a variety of things. Books, music, movies- and more. It is going to be about me, and my life as well. I am a 25 year old who lives in Colorado with a love for life!
When I love, I LOVE. That sums me and my life up well. In any case, I hope you will stick around and hope that you enjoy my blog- It will be a lot of madness, but in a good way!
If you want to get to know me better, just ask! I am open to any and all questions- but remember to be respectful to everyone!
