The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Unintentional Spy Camera

This is what happens when a technologically challenged DIY'er encounters a cell phone with a camera.

The genius that I am, I just now figured out how to email photos on my cell phone to my computer. It only took me a year.

I was sending off all my pictures and deleting them to free up memory when I found this. From what I can tell, around 50% of my pictures are taken on accident. There were probable a dozen pictures of the inside of my pocket (totally black), ceilings, up my nose, and such on my phone. I think this picture was taken while I was clearing out the dining room to putty the floor last year. I think I picked the phone up to move it and *CLICK.* At least you can't see up my nose.

OK, so. My boyfriend and I are looking to buy our first house and it's been pretty grim around here as we get tense about money, so he told me a joke to break my mood. I thought "hey, let's pass it on to J.Ahlen of the 'sas, cause he'll appreciate it."

"What do you do if an elephant comes down your street?"

"I dunno - what?"

"Swim for it!"

Ta daaa!
