I stole a car to see him.

Granted, it was my father's car, but it might have been better for me if I had committed grand larceny with a complete and total stranger's vehicle.

I was 18 and had just gotten my first credit card. In those days they would give a credit card to a cat. My first purchase was tickets to see David Bowie and Nine Inch Nails play at Nissan Pavilion.

I gathered up my current Boy Toy, got into the car and left my sleepy little town in West Virginia to go see my Idol. We got utterly lost and two hours later, we pulled into Nissan Pavilion just as David Bowie was finishing his set. My friend and I laughed and cried in that parking while listening to him.

Now I'm all grown up. In a few weeks I will turn the Big 4-0. I live nearly 3000 miles away from that sleepy little hamlet. And David Bowie is dead. Today, a part of my childhood died with him.

David Bowie was my first crush. I fell in love with him as Jareth in Labyrinth. I would often imagine that I was Sarah and made a different choice. Poor Tobey. I think he would been doomed to goblinhood had it been me instead of Jennifer Connelly.

As a teen, I listened to his music. I loved his voice and his strange, beautiful songs.

There was never anyone like him. And there never will be. Rest In Peace, Ziggy. Rest In Peace.

When you creativity strikes at midnight....Grrr...I have to get up in the morning...Damn you, muses!
Passing the torch. I've set up Morrowind on my son's computer.
Taking the plunge. Going to install Dragon Age Origins tonight.
I don't understand Tumblr. I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to be doing on it or what exactly the point of it is. Can someone please explain why it's a thing.
I am as flawed as the characters I create.

Lots of work with this one. It took ten tries to get it right and I'm still not entirely happy.

No cake, but I was given a day to write. And I needed that.

I think half my relatives shuddered when you said that, but I agree. Days to just sit and write are precious.

Eh, I turned 40....But I guess turning 40 beats not turning 40...

Hello Middle Age! Cue The Talking Heads:

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself
Well...How did I get here?
