Perfect Virginian Disaster TV Marathons

As you know, we are in the middle of a Virginia disaster marathon. Since we are stuck in the house as the dark rainy clouds surround us, the howling wind and bending trees keeping us huddled together, it is a perfect day for TV marathons. Since a dark mood is already set, it is a day for the weird and the scary shows. Here are my top recommendations that my family look forward to.


SUPERNATURAL- This is a perfect show if you don't have small children, or the kids are busy in another room. The story of the monster hunters, Sam and Dean, the dark scary weather is a perfect backdrop to the dark and mysterious stories of demons, fallen angels, and vampires. Verizon On Demand has Supernatural on TNT. I recorded the last season on my DVR. The last season has Sam and Dean against the mother of all evil- a demon like creature named Eve. Along with Sam and Dean are their father figure redneck hunter Bobby and the angel Castiel. Castiel is acting funny this season and the demon Crowley is causing trouble again.



DOCTOR WHO- The new Doctor Who episode "Let's Kill Hitler" is coming on tonight on BBC America. BBC America has a few special episodes reviewing the past season, the best of the Doctor, the best of the monsters, and a season update. I have them all on my DVR but I think On Demand also carries them. With its apocalyptical stories, Doctor Who is perfect to watch during a disaster. We watched "Waters of Mars", an episode that featured an evil virus that attacked people through the water. At the same time the water burst through the ceiling to attack the people is the Martian station, our water pipes from the ceiling above burst above us, making us all scream! It was the perfect 4D experience!

If you do not want scary horror but funny horror the show "Reaper" is perfect. It is on Netflix Instant Stream. All of the Star Treks except Deep Space Nine are also on Netflix. In my opinion horror and sci-fi are perfect to watch during a disaster and make great distractions. Do you know of any other great shows? Didn't the short lived show "Invasion" have the invasion occur during a hurricane? By the way I would never suggest romance and touchy feely shows because I cannot stand them, but that is my opinion.

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…
