Mike's Crawlspace Concoctions

Now Playing -
Where The Wild Roses Grow by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Life - 
Trying new things is one of the best things in life. Take today for example. I skipped my usual internet surfing, hitting my email and R3 briefly, before diving right into writing, finishing two chapters. I made a Beef and Barley soup for dinner, which has, amongst the things I never cook with, celery, lentils and barley. It smells superb, can't wait for dinner.

In the meantime, I'm trying a home-brewed libation from my dear friend. A fruity, sweet, almost tangy beverage, brewed in the depths of a hide-hole beneath his home of wonders. This is a very good thing. I'm not a beer drinker, never really have been. I enjoy a good dark beer now and again, but beyond that, I'll usually choose a glass of water or whiskey instead.

I do however, have to try anything new that comes my way. Candy bars, soaps, lip balm,  food... if it comes in a new flavor or has some gimmicky way to use it, provided it's under a few bucks, I can't resist. Back when I ran the Chevron, this was a challenge for me. Trying to resist the crazy things the vendors would bring in for show would be a real challenge. God knows how much Snake Oil I bought.

But sitting here in my garage, drinking this bewitching elixir, listening to the thunderstorm outside and the dreamy Nick Cave within, thinking of ways to kill an obnoxious blonde teller using zombies?


Writing - 
Punched out around 800 words today so far, and the night is young!

The Last Sentence - 
I slide out of the doorway, brushing off the shoulder where he touched me.
From - "Graves" (WIP)
