OIC. Steal my meme without leaving a comment? pfft


Hope your days off are going well!

Huh -- I replied to this, and it apparently got lost. That's the kind of day I've been having.

It was someone else's LJ I was replying to with this meme, although I can't remember whose, now. I didn't see it on yours -- yet. I'm about 2-3 days behind in my flist at the moment, so I probably just haven't gotten to it. In other words, I plead innocent!

My days off are going okay, except for the broken down car thing ... busier than usual. I don't like busy. :-(

Gee... do you like chocolate?

Would you like to eat it in Hawaii? ;)
Jun. 27th, 2007 04:56 am (UTC)
Oh, yes, eating chocolate on my beachfront Hawaiian winter home in between book tours. Oh, wait -- dripping chocolate onto a bare female body, *then* eating it ...

Um, never mind.

Hawaii is really pretty, and you've been to Northern Michigan? That where I am right now! And I just had chocolate ice cream with brownie pieces in it. YUM.

Oh, my, that sounds wonderful ... I need some of that. Double yum!

I live about a 45 minute drive from the Michigan line. When I was married, my wife and I spent every vacation at her father's cottage, which is on Lake Bellaire in the northwest part of the lower peninsula, north of Traverse City. In fact, my kids got permission from their grandpa for me to go up with them over the weekend of my birthday, so I'll get a chance to relax up there for a few days.

I've only been to the Upper Peninsula a few times, and it's incredibly beautiful there. My ex and I once camped along Lake Superior, early one August -- I mean, literally within sight of the lake. (I set the final battle scene from my first fanfic, "Where Do We Go From Here", in the same area.) Boy, it was cold. Brr! But the scenery was tremendous!

I was just wondering...how did you get ozma for your name? Is it your real name because my neighbor's name is Ozma. Sorry if this is nosey.
Jun. 28th, 2007 08:08 am (UTC)
here's Ozma
What?? You have a neighbor named Ozma, seriously? That's so cool!

My real name is Mark, and Ozma is generally considered to be a female name, which caused some confusion when I first got online. (Cause I'm a guy, you see.) The name comes from the Oz books by L. Frank Baum -- most people only know of the first, The Wizard of Oz. Starting at the end of the second book, a fairy princess named Ozma took over as the rightful ruler of Oz, and was one of the main characters for the 40 or so Oz books that came after (her best friend is Dorothy Gale).

When I first went online my youngest daughter's big fandom was the Oz books, so when I told her she could decide on my e-mail address, she picked Ozma -- and I've been Ozma ever since. 914 is my fire number: Our fire department is number 9 in the county, and I'm firefighter number 14. And that's the story! The only real person named Ozma I've ever heard of is Baum's granddaughter.

In my story "Mary Stu Got Harried" Dorothy makes an appearance, and mentions Ozma once; but to most people these days Oz means the Judy Garland movie, so most people aren't familiar with her.

I'm sensing a pattern here...Albion, chocolate, Hawaii....

When I was at school (lo these many eons ago! *g*) there was a restaurant that served hot fudge doughnut sundaes - I only went there once - vanilla ice cream on a plain cake doughnut with hot fudge sauce. Except I'm now envisioning it with a chocolate doughnut and chocolate ice cream. You could eat them in your mansion in Hawaii.

And I really wish you hadn't mentioned chocolate! I wonder when Dollar
General closes.....

Our Dollar General closes at 8 ... *sigh*
