Rebirth!

Posted by Art Squirrel on March 8, 2017 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello all...

So it seems I've been a bit lacking on the whole creative side lately. Life outside of the interwebs can be taxing but I need my creative outlet back. Does that mean I will be finishing long paused stories right away? No - sorry. Does it mean that I will be tinkering and slowly treading back into the written word? Yes, yes it does.

I will most likely begin with reorganizing and updating the site over all. A bit of blogging here and there. I have two big events coming up in March and I would like to get my webstore up and running. Eventually, There will be a Patreon link to add to the PayPal donation tab. My Uber side hustle and full time job pay the bills but don't support hobbies.

So check back again from time to time. I will be adding a calander so that you can see when things might get going.

My ultimate goal for this site is to post my literary works, fashion designs and travel blog - so it is literally all that and a bag of squirrels.... Speaking of which! We have a new domain name:

www.mybagofsquirrels.com

Here's to a new year and hopefully a more productive one.

Released from Literotica

Posted by Art Squirrel on December 17, 2012 at 9:30 PM Comments comments (3)

FINALLY!

It has taken a year to get literotica to remove my LynMorrigan account which was hacked last spring leaving me unable to access it. They also removed my GuinevereFawkes account, per my request, so that I could eventually start over at Literotica once I'm ready. I will be reposting there, some day. I am working on finishing Silent Seduction - so no worries! My life has just been a mess of BS for a while now which does NOT help the creative process. Now that things are once again calming down, I'm hoping to get a lot finished.

Wish me luck?

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

UPDATE (on the update):

I've gotten as far as the main page links and I have even added a few new photo galleries. Tomorrow after work and Saturday I will buckle down and hit the Recipies section and get to the secondary pages. Story revisions and editing will be the last thing I get to. I have a ton of photos to work on and I'm debating adding a mini Fashion gallery with some of my newer work.

Yup. I'm plugging away to revamp the site and get a few things on here that haven't been for a long time while cleaning up existing sections. Um... That's pretty much it. Don't expect this to happen over night. I have a strange feeling the work will go on til next year - so a few months.

Short Info Update

Posted by The Almighty L on April 1, 2011 at 11:08 PM Comments comments (0)

Silent Seduction is going to be on a brief hiatus until I get back from Italy. I know where I'm going with it, I have it all in my head, I've just been having a hard time getting a spare moment to sit down and write it out... Well, more like being able to focus enough to write it out. I'm hoping once I get back on the 23rd, I'll be able to focus and get back into the story. I AM going to finish it. I AM going to finish all of my stories but unfortunately I am at the whim of my muses which have been protesting lately.

On another note: my vacation. I am leaving on April 15th and will not be back until the 23rd. During that time, please, those of you that have my cell number - don't call me. Oo I can't afford the international rates. >< I'll be updating everyday/everyother day while I'm gone, as I made sure that my hotels had wi-fi. If you want to get a hold of me, please, send me an email or through any of the other sites you know me through.

Lastly, as soon as I get another spare moment to focus and work on editing pictures I will updating Katrina's (Birth)day out and photos of my new tattoo and my recipes and... (yeesh) my product reviews of items I've been using in preparation of my trip.

So until next time, I'll try my hardest to keep you all posted with everything that is going on in my life right now. Well, not all of it cause I'm not allowed to disclose certain things that are going on with certain people out of simple politeness.

New things coming

Posted by The Almighty L on January 9, 2011 at 4:58 AM Comments comments (0)

The first chapter of a new story is up for those who are interested... the Mummy: the Daughters of Uadjet. Fret not, new chapters of existing stories are in the works as well. Two more Sakura Blossom Set-ups have been requested and chapters for each: Silent Seduction, Bad Romance and No Time to be Engaged are in the final editings. I will be a bit busy with some work that's come in for editing other people's stoires but I should be getting these up sometime by the end of this coming week. I'm really trying to buckle down and ge tthis stuff done before I start school again.

So until next time...


Peace, Love & Sporks, my friends.

A new year...

2011 will be upon us in about 6 hours...


So since it's a time for change you'll notice that the site has gotten a new look. I've also redone the chapters of No Time to be Engaged. There is a new scene that was previously omitted and lots of other changes because after digging around in the Naruto universe I had to make some adjustments to make Gin's age right. Oo Almost the whole frikken cast of that manga aren't even 1/4 of a century old. Being a teenager in Japan must suck - I swear you have to save the world at least once before you graduate middle school. Chapter 6 is in the editing stages.


Bad Romance has also gotten a bit of an overhaul. You'll notice the artwok on the ToC? Well, that is Aspen and Sam drawn by JessKat83 at Deviant Art. Check out the rest of her stuff. I personally love their expressions and the Gir hoodie! Gir! Doom doom doom doom doom....


Chapter 5 of Silent Seduction is on its way in. I'm almost done writing it and then it will be off to editing. (UPDATE: Chapter 5 is up!)


There are four... dear god, yes, I said four more stories coming in too. A new rendition of Phantom of the Opera, a Cinderella/Aladdin-esque fairy tale, a short story based on an old unfinished RP and a fanfic request for the time period between the Mummy and the Mummy Returns featuring Ardeth Bay.


I'm rediculously busy if you can't tell... Plus, I have 3 more drawings to finish and my movie script I'm still writing... And I go back to school on January 18th if I can argue with the school to fix a little problem we're having. -_- Frikken teachers are asses...


Anyways, 'til next time...


Happy

New Year!


Enjoy the following "real" lyrics of Alud Lang Syne (Authors: Sir Robert Ayton & Ramsay - featured in his book Scots Songs, 1720)


"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And never thought upon,

The flames of love extinguished,

And freely past and gone?

Is thy kind heart now grown so cold

In that loving breast of thine,

That thou canst never once reflect

On old-long-syne?


"On old long syne.

On old long syne, my jo,

On old long syne:

That thou canst never once reflect

On old long syne."


"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

Tho' they return with scars?

These are the noble hero's lot,

Obtain'd in glorious wars:

Welcome, my Varo, to my breast,

Thy arms about me twine.

And make me once again as blest,

As I was lang syne."


"On old long syne.

On old long syne, my jo,

On old long syne:

That thou canst never once reflect

On old long syne."


"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

Or friendship e'er grow cauld?

Should we nae tighter draw the knot

Aye as we're growing auld?

How comes it, then, my worthy friend,

Wha used to be sae kin',

We dinna for ilk ither spier

As we did lang syne?"


(some) People Suck!

Posted by The Almighty L on November 27, 2010 at 5:12 PM Comments comments (1)

It's the holidays. There's supposed to be a wonderful feeling of caring and brotherhood this time of year. Instead people get trampled at Black Friday deals. Charity scams steal from those out there that are on fixed incomes. People break into others' homes and cars to steal presents for children and loved ones that can't be replaced because the economy sucks and most people are scraping change to by gifts this year.

Ususaly, I just shake my head at people that do these things but today...

I'm PISSED!

I'm LIVID!

I got to work today at 830. I got out at about 1450. My day was a bit boring but otherwise good. I get out to my car, start to get in and then suddenly wonder, did I leave my window down all day? In 30 degree weather? No. No, I didn't. Some jerk off decided to smash in my front passenger side window... and NOT take anything!!!

I had a $100 radar detector still sitting right on my dash. A change cup with probably $10 in it. I even had a box of fruit snacks, granola bars and bottles of juice on the passenger seat from a quick store stop I made that morning. All of it was still there.

I mean if you're going to break into someone's car at least take something! Make it worth both of your time to deal with this BS. I mean this ass is going to end up costing me $250 that I don't have! I'm already behind in my bills from having to pay medical bills for procedure to remove a tumor two months ago. Now, I have to pay a deductible and get a loaner (which, thankfully, my insurance is covering).

I can only think of three things reasons that someone would do this and not take anything:

1. they did it out of boredom just to vandalize something (or they have something against Homeland Security)

2. they did it to steal stuff but lost their nerve when someone pulled into the parking lot

3. I have someone out there that doesn't like me that I don't know about

I would love to ask this person why.

Why?

Why are you making me pay money that I don't have to fix your stupid choice? Why don't you give a damn that people out there are in dire straights and don't need crap like this? I've had to scrape and save to pay for the things I have and never, NEVER, would it cross my mind to steal from someone. Maybe their parents didn't teach them that stealing was wrong or maybe they're just idiots, I don't know. I just wish that karma bites them in the ass for me.

 


Music!

& Updates!


Chapter Two of Bad Romance is up and I've added a rather appropriate song to our Vacation 2011 page. I'm coming to terms with the fact that 30 isn't all that old...

Not fully there yet but I'm getting there. Oo Ugh, especially since the guy that I'm attracted to is 4 years younger then me. -_-

New & Coming Soon

You'll notice a new link up top, Gateway. This is our version of a Links page. There you will find links to some of our favorite sites and other authors. Enjoy! However, keep in mind the descriptions and the ratings included so that I don't get a headache later when you stumble on something you aren't into.

I'm in the editing process for more additions that have been long waiting for this site. A lot of them are from WAY... WAAAAAAAAY back - like almost 7 years now, most of which were silly requests I just had fun with. Hope you enjoy them as much as the people that requested them. :D
