Okay, if you haven't seen The Walking Dead from 9 February 2014, you might want to click the red x in the top right hand corner of your screen because spoilers ahoy!
1. Where is Daryl?
2. ALL THE PUDDING.
3. Heartbreaking for Michonne.
Some memes I created during the episode...
All of that said...
Has anyone noticed that there are a whole lot of zombies in suspenders? In real, day to day life...I rarely see ANYONE wearing suspenders. And I live in a small town full of farmers. Wth with the suspenders, TWD costume department? Do they hold gore better?
This tells me this: Real life suspender usage = rare
Zombie apocalypse suspender usage = common
Which can be simplified by saying...
Wearing suspenders will turn you into a zombie. Sorry. If you wear suspenders, you were warned.
What were your favorite moments? What made you tear up?
And are you as excited for next week's episode as I am?

It is a bit of serendipity that the movie featuring, “Once
Upon a Dream” is being advertised on tv right now. Back when I wrote Magical Curves, that song played over
and over in my head. Emily, my lost princess, lives a life buried in books and
invisible. She only comes to life when her head hits the pillow each night,
after all. She knows her prince and has for years.
She met him once upon
But Magical Curves
was more than that for me. Yes, I wanted to tell a fairy tale and have it bump
into our contemporary world, but I also wanted a princess like none I’d ever
read. Emily isn’t a size two supermodel with perfect hair and the ability to
sing and call animals to do her house work. Emily is a size twenty with frizzy
curls framing her round face. She wears glasses. She’s not magically
transformed before the end of the story, either, so if you’re looking for a
princess who is perfect in every way?
Emily probably isn’t for you.
Daphne, her best friend, she’s all those things. Daphne was
likened, by one of my crit partners, to Audrey Hepburn in appearance and I
think that is pretty apt. She’s tiny, dark haired…simply lovely.
But, you have to wait for the next book for Daphne’s story.
In the meantime, please help me welcome the first of my
Magical trilogy to the world.
Emily Flowers dreams of something more.Living a humble, if solitary, life as the local librarian, she looks forward
to laying her head o
n her pillow each night to travel to a magical place where
she has adventures with a wizard prince.
Kayden, prince of Zenith, the land of the setting sun, found his
soulmate long ago.Her imagination and
spirit has long fed his magic, but the time has come for him to collect his
bride.Can he convince her that some
dreams are so powerful, they can become reality so he can finally taste her Magical Curves?
So you just moved to the Most Haunted Town in Virginia?
Welcome. We here in Penny Hollow like to take care of our own—but just in case
you’re unfamiliar with the habits of spooks, ghosts, haunts, phantoms, and
poltergeists, we’ve put together this handy pamphlet. If you have any
questions, be sure to give Mrs. Cartwright or Mrs. Beagle a ring, they know everything.
10.You won’t get lost, but you may get turned
We don’t have that
many streets, however, if you find yourself at an abandoned house—we recommend
heading back the way you came. Usually if a property is abandoned in these
parts, there’s a darn good reason for it.
9. Everyone knows
everyone else here.
You won’t be a
stranger for long, and don’t be startled if everyone already knows who you are
and what phantom you’re likely having trouble with. Oh, and the bed and
breakfast is definitely haunted, and the kids are very mischievous. If you feel
like someone is watching you…that’s the living and the dead.
8. We’re very proud
of our history.
We have several
festivals, and each one has been celebrated for many generations. Don’t scoff,
we’ve only ever missed one and the ghosts were so consternated with us
well…yes, let’s leave that for another day. Just remember to show up for all
the parties and no one gets hurt.
7. Social media is
alive and well in Penny Hollow.
And no, we’re not
talking about Facebook or anything Internet based. Trust us, if you want it to
go viral just ask Mrs. Cartwright or Mrs. Beagle. They’ll take care of
anything. The ghosts have their own network, and it’s best to not talk about
it. Check with Jock if you’re worried you might have offended one of our local
6. The carpet rolls up at nine.
No, seriously, like EVERYTHING is closed at about 9 p.m.
Except for the Grill. They shut their doors at 11 p.m. You may notice odd
lights in some of the shops, and music in the Grill after it’s closed—just keep
right on going. It’s best to live and let the dead party on their own.
5. When something bad happens, we’re the first ones you call.
Don’t be a shut in, we have rules and we will check on
you if we haven’t seen you out and about. If you’re single, well Mrs.
Cartwright and Mrs. Beagle know all the eligible young folks in these parts. Do
have a care not to visit the Thompson Plantation if you’re single. It’s just
not a good idea.
4. The Founding Families all have ghosts, curses, charms,
or psychic baggage.
Sad, but true. Don’t worry, it’s not all bad.
But if you’re curious about the local lore with regard to one of the founding
families, there’s only seven: Archer, Cartwright, Hawkins, Kent, Pope, Talbot,
3. All emergency calls are routed through the Sheriff’s
And by all, we mean all…this includes, but is
not limited to, a dead battery in your vehicle, missing cattle, trespassers on your lawn, and a phantom
locking you out of your bathroom. He’s pretty familiar with all the characters
living and dead in the town.
2.Alien abductions are just plain stupid.
If you wake up in your
underwear in a field, you were likely just drunk.
1. We take care of our own.
Just what it says, so don’t think we’re going to let you
tear down any of our homes or abandoned buildings. If you want to repurpose
them, that’s just fine, but you take them as they are—ghosts and all.
Any questions? Remember, Mrs. Cartwright and Mrs. Beagle
