Norma's alive and well, thank you

There is nothing much to report, the only thing that I will say is that I am in hitaus from this blog. I have to be. I'm in the middle of a quarter session. So...I haven't had time to write anything. I know that there are those of you out there that I wondering where I have been. I have been okay. I'm still alive and well. Thank you. By the way, as you may have noticed any spam comments will be completely ignored. I will NOT post any comment, that I feel is not just. If you post a comment that I feel and see is real I will post it. But seeing as all the comments are spam, not real, no deal.

Cerritos' Bookstore Beast

Hello everyone! Just another update about me. It's always about me. Since the last time I saw you there is one new development. This coming fall semester I begin at California State University Los Angeles. Really. And it's soon. There is one way to describe what I have felt over the last nine months and what I will feel when it begins. What do I do? What do I say? What do I wear? How does a Bookstore Beast like me feel, say and think? I can't, I won't. I will just let myself be and let me "be me." Just like anything and anyone I have ever met. If you let me "be me" I will love you forever and ever and ever and ever and 100 times ever. There is no better way then to let me be who I have always been. I know that as a student one must be able to read and read and now that in a quarter session there an intense speed to it. Speed is my middle name. And intense goes in the same sentence. If I can memorize 1400 books, as 23,000 students look for books, who says that one can't try and love a quarter session? See you at CSULA or Cerritos or somewhere between here, Los Angeles, Hollywood or Long Beach or somewhere in between.

Love for Xena...at least on a shirt

Greetings everyone!!!
FINALLY!! Here is a new photo of me, with yes, a Xena Warrior Princess t-shirt on. I realize that it's been a loooooooooooooong time. Forever, even. But nothing as changed much and yes, I have been okay. Alive. Well. Breathing. And loving Xena (or is that Lucy Lawless) again. I call it re-obsessing again.

Taking at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, this person was nice, super nice, to give me the photos of myself. THANK YOU a 100 times over and over and over and over again.

So much as changed, but I have. In terms of reading books. I have been thinking if I can re-obsess about Xena Warrior Princess I can re-obsess about other things and just read about other books. But most of all I just wanted all of you to see me now. Where I am. And how I look.

A real Ugly Betty.
A real person.
And yes, just loving Xena (again)

It's been so long, how has everyone been?

It's been so long. Where do I begin? What should I say? I know...just say...HI! And my apologies for the longest delay, but I have been through and back with the things that I must do. I have been offered admission to a Cal State University campus but I have yet to confirm that it is where I am going. I am just in the beginning stages of seven months off after seven years of community college. So...what have I been doing? READING. I know, I know, not the most exciting thing to do while one sits and waits, and waits, and waits and waits...

But reading for me is a place I like to be and being able to have creative juices flowing in my mind. Besides, imagine a world without books. How boring. I would go mad. Even crazy. And cry a flood. I'm on my third book, F.X. Toole, the man who wrote "Rope Burns: Stories From the Corner," a.k.a. "Million Dollar Baby" to the rest of the world. Great book. His second and last book, "Pound for Pound" I gotta say, impressed with the details. Make me want to fight now. I have read Andre Agassi, "Open" book as well. Another impressive book. I applaud his words and such and I will read Greg Louganis book, "Breaking the Surface" from 1995, and such. As you can see all the books are from men. What can I say? I have crushes on men all the time. I such a girl.

I'm also at the Aquarium of the Pacific. I keep volunteering. I'm having fun. Why ruin a good thing. Something like 1,200 hours or more. Who knows? Who cares? As I go through these next seven months the only thing that will make me happy besides a book is knowing that somehow, some way I've made a person laugh because I believe that the more I do, the more I read and the more I make people laugh the brighter they shine. You know that Madonna song, "Lucky Star" when the lyrics, say, "Star light star bright the star I see tonight, star light star bright makes everything alright." I try to shine but it's who I've met that have treated my with kindness that shine the brightest. THANK YOU to everyone single human being and fan out there. They will be the first people I will thank when I win an Emmy, Oscar, Grammy, and Tony.

What? A girl can dream

Well, see you again, soon I hope.
