This may be super embarassing!

NaBloPoMo November 2013You ask.  I answer.

The question:

Tell us about your writing space. Where do you write your blog posts?
This question really made me think.
It seems simple enough.
The facts.
I sit at my husband's desk. 
You want to know why? 
His desk is clean. 
Look for yourself.

  • Computer. 
  • Glass of water.  (trying to run and it is important to stay hydrated.) 
  • Handheld scanner. 

Why a scanner? 

Sometimes it is my entertainment.  You would not believe the calls you can listen to in a single day.  Most of the time it is for emergency information.  I have used it for nearby grass fires.  I have a lot of animals to evacuate in the event of a fire, and it is one of my biggest fears.  I have also used it for bad weather situations.  You can hear a lot on the news, but the officers on the ground report things in real time. 

Who am I kidding? 

Mostly I use it for entertainment.  It doesn't hurt that I know some of the volunteer fire department.

Some of them should not be allowed to speak on the radio.

Some of them let things slip out that would be very inappropriate over open air waves.

Believe me.  I know this is one of those double-edge-sword-sort-of-things.  I realize in the event I have an emergency, I will probably know someone that shows up.

I hope I am not in a comprised-sort-of-way.


You may want to sit down.

This could be shocking.

I am going to show you something that you may find hard to believe.

This is my desk.

My laptop is buried under there some place.

Leave me alone.

It's on the list, Okay. 

Give me a break already!


  1. hahahahahahahaha At least I know I come by it naturally! I think stacking is a trait passed genetically! PS I want a scanner like that for Christmas. Or tell me where you got it so I can get one. I feel like that could be awesomely necessary with my upcoming move.
