Whistling Dixie

I grew up using Dixie Cups after I brushed my teeth; I still use them, but recently they’ve been hard to come by. I went to three drug stores last weekend: Duane Reade, Rite Aid, and Walgreens. Genuinely flummoxed when none of the stories had the illusive Dixie Cups in stock, I ordered two boxes on Amazon, which will arrive tomorrow…

On Thursday, May 9th at 6:00 p.m. I’ll be reading with Patrick Freivald and Michael Kozlowski.

Friday, May 10th from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., I’ll be signing copies of my books at the Mass Autograph Session and Ice Cream Social!

This year, I splurged and am attending the Stoker Banquet. Should be a great con! I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones!

A Decade as a Full-time Freelancer

When I got laid off from my last Corporate job 10 years, ago, I vowed to make it as a Full-time Freelancer. It was slow going at first, but gradually, I built a robust client base through a combination of LinkedIn, happy client referrals, as well as the Freelancers Union.

One of the great things about Freelancing is no two days are alike—if I want to go shopping in the morning, I tend to client work when I get home—I seldom get a day off, so when I do, I try to relax and do something fun!

There are times I work 14 hour days, which has been most of 2019 to date; other times, in between projects, the silence can be deafening. I’ve learned to roll with the punches!

Box Office Demise

I went to Regal Cinemas yesterday at Union Square in Manhattan. I hadn’t been there in over a month; the lobby was under construction. Soon they will do away with the box office all together and I’ll have to buy tickets at a kiosk with my credit card, not a thrilling prospect, especially since I seldom use my credit cards and would prefer to keep it that way!

Basal Cell Carcinoma

I'd had a growth on my face for over a year; my old Dermatologist wouldn't touch it. I'm a Digital Content Specialist for a Cosmetic Surgeon; while updating content for his website about Skin Cancer, I thought that the abnormality on my face resembled a Basal Cell Carcinoma. Unfortunately, I was correct. My new Dermatologist, Dr. Samer Jaber,  performed a Skin Shave Biopsy, which confirmed that I do indeed have a Basal Cell Carcinoma. I'll be having Mohs Surgery in the Spring. Fingers crossed...
