Life and Times of a Mommy(:

The Elavator

The PromptYou’re stuck in an elevator with an intriguing stranger. Write this scene.


It was a dark, rainy morning. Everyone that stepped on the elevator was soaking wet. I was no exception. But that morning, there was something ominous in the air. Something that didn’t seem quite right. The doors opened and in stepped a figure in a long, black trench coat. Their head was ducked down behind a high, upturned collar. Soon, it was just me and the figure alone in the cramped space. Water dripped from the coat, forming a puddle around their feet.

It’s the Hash Slinging Slasher. I know it! I thought, getting more afraid by the second. I’m going to die. This person is going to whip out a hook and slice me in half and no one is going to hear me scream! I started shaking in my four inch heels. The elevator door dinged. I can’t even run in these…I will fall and break my ankle and it will be every chase scene in a horror movie come to life! Scenario after scenario started playing through my head. I Know What You Did Last SummerScream, HalloweenTexas Chainsaw Massacre.

The figure slowly started turning towards me as I got ready to dart out the doors, praying I was faster. The figure faced me and slowly lifted their head. A scream built in the back of my throat. I started to open my mouth when I realized I knew the face looking at me. It was one of the guys a few cubicles down from mine.

“Hey, you getting off here?” he asked. My mouth snapped shut and I stomped out of the elevator. I turned black and glared at him. “Thanks for scaring the bajeesus out of me.” I continued to stomp to my desk as he snickered behind me.


Random Search Terms (Volume 1, maybe?)

K so! Over at Lucy’s blog she does this thing. She calls it “An Open Letter To People Who Find My Blog Accidentally”. She then tells us all the fun and weird search terms people use and that lead them to her blog! I’m going to steal her idea because it is an ingenious idea!! You get some pretty crazy search terms!! Well… She does, I haven’t… YET!!  But here is our first list!!

Search term(s) numero uno!!

gory pictures of boston bombing marathon
boston marathon gory pictures
gory pictures of boston marathon

First off, WHY ARE PEOPLE LOOKING UP GORY PICTURES OF THE BOSTON MARATHON?!?!   I know I didn’t post any gory pictures of the Boston marathon. Pretty sure I said there were some gory pictures… But whatever makes people happy right? Personally I don’t want to see that. However, I do know of a site (out of pure morbid curiosity  while back) there is a site that has morgue photos, crime scene photos, etc. of different murders and crimes along with some good info. I can’t remember, nor do I really want to remember, the name of the site but if people want to look at gory pictures maybe they should go there…. (The only reason I found this site was because I was curious about the Black Dahlia murder after an episode of American Horror Story. Which, by the way, is a pretty great show if you like ghosts and scary movies.)


Search term numero dos!!

spring images

Because those images are the best in the world other than early fall!! Duh!!! The post about spring was a fun one to find pictures for!! There were pretty flowers and green grass and fun animations and I totally just made a run on sentence because I didn’t use comas! *takes a deep breath* (Any one else read stuff as the type and realize that they have really poor grammar when typing? No? Alrighty, moving on…)


Search term(s) numero three! (because I don’t know how to spell three in Spanish…)

horror movies with sexy men
perm story

Horror movies with sexy men? Why not just sexy men? Why be distracted from a great movie plot with sexy man candy strutting around half naked, showing of those gorgeous washboard abs?? WHY!? But.. Anyway. Yes. The list. The spectacular, amazing, beautiful, as many adjectives that are synonymous with awesome, list. *sigh* I had forgotten about that list…  Bookmarking…. Yup. That will be a list to look at, at least, once a week. Probably more.

And you guys read about the perm story right? So we don’t have to rehash it? Awesome! But to those who haven’t read, or found it by mistake, it was a great story right? Good, glad you got a laugh!

Possible search term numero quatre! (That is French guys!! Check out be I’m…tri-lingual!! :D)


Anyone know what that is?! I Googled it and came up with a website. I think it’s a picture finder website…. Maybe? I dunno..

Search term(s) numero cinq (Again French!! Look at me go, mixing languages!!)

god, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,   courage to change the things I can,   and wisdom to know the difference.
lord give me the serenity to accept
lord help me to change the things that
grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change courage to change the things we can and wisdom to know the difference
things that define who we are
the wisdom to know the difference
dear lord give me the strength to accept

Woo! That’s a lotta search terms!! These terms are all used to find the Serenity Prayer. It’s a great little prayer to keep in mind, keep around your house, or at the office. I mean, you don’t have to be Christian to say it. It’s just something to help you get through the day. I posted about it here. It has the prayer and a pretty awesome painting I did of it for my mother in law. (It was originally for me but she decided she wanted one so I gave her mine. I had another that went to my grandmother so I’m waiting to buy more canvases to do more..)

Here is a picture of my painting.

So. For those of you who stumbled upon my blog by accident! Thanks for stopping by and checking out all the awesome randomness!! Hope you enjoyed it and I hope you come back and see us!! I apologize if we scared you at first with our intensity, but I promise, you get used to it! Everyone does!!

We will probably do one of these every month because they are super fun!!! So stay  tuned guys!!
