Day One

A friend knocks on your door. Her father has had a heart attack and she must leave town immediately to visit—only problem is she needs someone to watch over her very unusual pet.

I sat there staring at the thing sitting in her arms. Could that really be called a pet? How could I have thought that all these years dragons were simply mythical creatures? Now, my friend was asking me to watch this baby one while she went to visit her father in Wisconsin. Why not just fly on the back of that thing she called a pet? This was the problem with being such a polite, giving person.

"You're sure it's not going to, like, breath fire or anything?" I asked.

"David, you're an idiot! He's a komodo dragon, not some mythical creature," Abigail replied. I could hear the exasperated tone in her voice. It's not like it was my fault she had decided to raise a monster as a pet.

"Don't you hear the word dragon? Dragons are mythical creatures."

She rolled her eyes. "It's just for a week. Can you do this for me, or not?"

First things first, I needed to get everything fire-proofed, and we needed to do something about those claws of the monster she held. "All right, all right. I'll watch the... komodo."

"His name is Larry." She pushed him into my arms as if he weighed nothing. My body started tipping forward to fall to the ground. "Now, make sure not to feed him too much. He only eats one pound of raw ground beef every 12 hours. He won't eat again until tonight at 10." To my dismay, she started placing things on top of the already heavy creature. "Here are his nail clippers, the bristle brush to scrub his scales--he needs to be bathed every day--and I think this will be enough money to last for the ground beef." As if all of this weren't weird enough, she knelt to its' view and kissed it on the cheek. Or maybe what would be its' cheek if it were human. "I love you, Larry. Be a good boy. Mommy will be back in a few days." She straightened, looking me in the eye. "Don't let him get out."

I nodded, trying to ignore the burning in my arms. She said I shouldn't feed him too much, but it felt as if he'd already eaten more than enough. I stupidly stood there with the beast in my arms as she ran down the driveway, waving goodbye as she climbed into her taxi. "Help me," I squeaked out uselessly as I began to topple backward.

The money went flying through the air, the nail clippers bounced off my head before landing on the floor, and the bristle brush struck the monster in the eye. Larry made a small noise of discontent then stretched himself before slowly strolling off of me. I felt as if a car had run over me. Slowly. I passed out.

Waking up a few hours later, everything was still in the same place it had landed save for one thing. Larry was no where in sight, and I realized my front door was still open. "Oh, no... Larry?!"

Standing up, I ran through the house, looking for the giant monster. He wasn't in the bedroom or chewing on the wires in my office. The bathroom was empty, and my couch was still intact and empty. As I ran passed the front door once more, I heard screaming. Skidding to a halt, I poked my head outside. Now I knew why Abigail hadn't wanted him to eat too much.

While I've enjoyed the close-knit community here and will be back to check on my favorites, UNCENSORED has sadly shut down. Rather, you may check out my new blog here: http://mylifesmalltown.blogspot.com/. This blog will have updates regarding my daughter Adelie Ashley Rose as well, but this blog is also based mainly on my personal journal. Life events from my journal are published on my blog at a weekly basis (sometimes). Updates of Adelie are posted whenever she does something cute.

Also, I'm planning to write things about the three towns I live closest to (and the one I live in): Hesperia, Apple Valley, and Victorville, California. It is my hope that people in these towns will use this blog for tips, tricks, advice, and reviews about nearby restaurants, stores, etc. I will be registering for the feeds of my favorite blogs here to keep in touch with those of you that first welcomed me to Musecrafters. Thank you, and good luck to you all.

Death and Fame in a Fictional News Story

Online rumormongers are sending stars to their premature demise at an alarming rate lately, turning two age-old human obsessions — death and fame — into their own ultramodern form of entertainment. Bieber and Lautner are the most recent victims, and their ''deaths'' came with elaborate scenarios perpetuated by message boards, YouTube video tributes, fake screen shots made to look like real news sources, and anonymous postings on legitimate hubs like CNN's iReport.com (which subsequently pulled the Bieber story). And in the past six months, at least a dozen celebrities have pretend-passed in fantastically fabricated stories, including George Clooney, Natalie Portman, Miley Cyrus, and Zach Braff, plus Jaclyn Smith, who suffered a particularly gruesome suicide rumor.
Honestly, what is wrong with fans that would want to write up a fictional tale of their famous star dying? And really, if some of these stars are so innocent (Justin Bieber was supposedly killed in an altercation at a night club) why are their fans believing stupid crap about them? Read the article to learn about poor Justin Bieber, 15 years old, meeting an early demise by visiting a night club in Chicago. The bouncer won't let him in so he pulls out a .25 caliber. Of course, a cop that just happens to be loitering around the night club manages to get a shot out first.

Now, I'm a fiction writer, and I know I've written some pretty unbelievable shit, but really? Would this 15-year-old celeb really visit a night club? Would he really just be carrying around a .25 caliber? And why the hell is a cop just hanging around the place? The story, honestly, doesn't make sense.

One Month Old

My little girl is now a month old, and boy am I ready for her to be sleeping through the night! Honestly, nursing her has gotten easy. In fact, twice now I've fallen asleep while she's eaten. Just last night, I did that, and I woke up to find her waking to fuss for food. I have to use nipple guards because I have flat nipples, and she had somehow managed to pull the nipple guard off of me and stick it to the side of her face. I honestly wish I had taken a picture!
