Rambling Monday night thoughts

I was going to write this long and insightful post about being part of the generation that bridges the 20th and 21st century. And I did too.

Boy, did I sound like a pompous ass. *shakes head sadly*

I think instead I'll address some of the silliness the younglings that I deal with on a daily basis seem to have with my age and likes/dislikes.

Dear Younglings (and you know who you are):

Yes, I like rock and roll. I've been listening to it since I was a baby -- why should that change because I'm older? And, YES, I like Dark Wave, Death Metal, Disco, Pop, Classic Rock and everything in-between. According to you, my musical tastes are "weird." I say: "And your point is?"

Yes, I like to game. I've been a gamer since I was young too. I started out with Dungeons & Dragons and I've segued over the years from stand-alone games to Final Fantasy XI online. If you boggle at that, come in game. I'm a BKC and I'm pretty damned good at it.

Yes, I love manga and anime and have for years now. Bishounen boys R Us, baby. (I love it when they run and hide when I say that.)

And, finally, YES I am a fan girl. Heavy duty. Hard core. With engraved drool buckets and a collection of FRUs that would make your eyes pop. And, children? The day I cease to be a fan girl is the day you'll be scattering my ashes over where they used to film Highlander in Vancouver. I'm a horny old broad and my hubby likes me that way. Deal, darlings.

I've discovered in this, my fifth decade: I don't suffer fools gladly, nor stand quiet when I see wrong being done. I'm loud, I'm brash, I'm rude and I'm embarassingly direct. But I am also loyal, generous and when I love, I love with all my heart. Some of you out there know this better than others. :winks at jenboo and whitemunin: (tree220 I don't even count you anymore, you're part of the furniture.)

I've been blessed in that I am finally doing something that I've wanted to do all my life. That would be to write and edit -- a double joy for me. I've had a few rocky starts with some of my authors -- those that I was given when I took the job -- but I've been especially lucky that those authors I've chosen have been total joys to work with. I have a co-author who is closer to me than any sister could ever be. I have a husband that I love and would give my life for.

You know something? Who the hell wants to be a bridge? I'm damned happy as a rowdy old broad. Besides, I'm getting to the age where it won't be long before I can pinch guys' asses with impunity. *rubs hands together in anticipation* Oh, won't DragonCon be FUN then!

Love, Peace and French Vanilla ice cream, y'all,
