A Renaissance in Creative Writing

Ooooh-purrs, the Kougar would love donning that beautiful ladies outfit, with her own embellishments, of course.

Cold evening purrs, my fierce-clawed and fabtastic Felines... a beautiful late autumn day on the tame prairie, but shiver, shiver... uh-oh, the Kougaress had two major unexpected problems today... both required off-the-wall ingenuity... a discipline this Big Cat has trained in religiously for most of her life... only because of pure necessity... still, yowls, what works is what works.

A Renaissance in Creative Writing ~ Have you looked around the web, Kittens, at all the amazing writerly blogs? At all the free reads authors and aspiring authors are offering? Not to mention the exponential growth of the ebook market, and all the blossoming subgenres, at this time. The variety of books offered just in the romance genres, alone, is mind-boggling.

This renaissance-realization hit moi ~smack in the face~ when she took a look at the Guts and Butts page at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS, and smiled with tingly enjoyment. Yes, it should have been obvious before since the Kougaress adores his period in herstory/history, and because she immediately recalled other free reads, flash stories, and flashes she enjoyed.

It’s here. It’s now. A Renaissance in Creative Writing.

The tail-switching holiday moment: There came a tap-tapping outside the Kougar’s office window... so she quietly approached knowing it was probably a bird after an insect dinner... oh, and then, she saw the gray and white tail feathers, and managed to crane her neck enough to catch sight of the red-headed woodpecker... what a darling-cutie!

11:11 pm... 12:12 am... 2:12 am... 2:22 am... 10:10 am... 12:12 pm... 4:44 pm... According to a Harvard happiness study saying ***I love you*** and receiving lots of affection, lots of hugs and kisses, ups the happiness quotient dramatically... And, did you know that holding hands is a connection of the heart via nerve pathways, and that it raises the feel-good chemical, oxytocin, known as the cuddle chemical.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 703 ~

Sylva awoke to a strange high-pitched buzzing. Zeke let go of her rolling fast. She felt the bed give as he launched to his feet. Reluctantly, she opened one eye, and finally blinked. She must have been sleeping much deeper than she realized. “Emergency, darlin’.” Her cowboy’s sleep-roughened voice answered her question somewhat. Jerking up to her elbow, she saw him hauling on a pair of work jeans and a denim shirt. Grabbing his gun belt, he whipped it around his hips, then buckled the two holsters to his thighs. “Emergency?” Sylva asked, realizing real life on this Earth intruded.

Zeke acted on pure training and reflex. The moment he’d heard ‘the buzz’, as it was called, he’d leaped out of bed and threw his clothes on, then slid on his gun belt. Now, he perched on a low stool, jerking on what he called his ‘runnin’ boots’. “Sylva, darlin’, you’ll be okay and I’ll be back soon, Lord willin’.” With not even a moment to snatch a kiss from his bride, Zeke planted his Stetson on. “Mother will take care of you.” He gave her a last longing look, then rushed out his back door, trotting down the stairs.

Watchdog Probes DHS Spying on Drudge

FOIA request investigates whether critics of TSA are being listed as domestic extremists

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by former Congressman Bob Barr seeks to discover whether the Department of Homeland Security has been keeping tabs on the Drudge Report and other prominent media outlets who have spearheaded a nationwide revolt against invasive TSA airport security measures.

The FOIA request, filed by Barr’s Liberty Guard organization (PDF here), demands that the Transportation Security Administration, an agency of the DHS, turn over all information related to “Matt Drudge,” “,” along with other media personalities and websites that have been at the center of the TSA controversy, including “Alex Jones, “John Tyner” and “”.

The request seeks to ascertain whether any of these names have been linked with the term “domestic extremist,” in reference to a reported TSA memo that was leaked last week which, according to Doug Hagmann, “officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as ‘domestic extremists’.”

Numerous confirmed memos originating out of federal or state law enforcement agencies, such as the infamous MIAC report, have listed conservatives and libertarians as “domestic extremists” and even potential domestic terrorists for opposing big government and supporting Constitutionally-minded campaigns and causes.

Barr’s attempt to discover whether the federal government is treating critics of the TSA as domestic extremists is key in light of TSA chief John Pistole’s announcement yesterday that all travelers flying in US airspace would be checked against a government watch list before they are given permission to board an aircraft, a system some have likened to Communist-style internal checkpoints.

The notion that Matt Drudge, a constant thorn in the side of ‘Big Sis’ Janet Napolitano, along with other prominent media critics of the TSA, could be the target of DHS surveillance is hardly far fetched considering the fact that Homeland Security was caught recently spying on Tea Party groups as well as State Representative Daryl Metcalfe.

The TSA is turning into an arm of the DHS’ political police force – how long before Matt Drudge, Bob Barr and Alex Jones are put on a list and prevented from flying? Will everyone who opposes being radiated in a naked body scanner or having their kids felt up by TSA goons be put on a list?

Drudge has been at the forefront of a national rebellion against the TSA’s new enhanced pat down procedures which subject travelers, including children, the disabled and the elderly, to humiliating treatment which falls not far short of sexual molestation.

The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire.

Ooh, off-the-wall ingenuity, I love that. Historically speaking, most folks relied on ingenuity to get themselves through. You're in good company, Savanna! :) I hope you were able to get everything fixed up!

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, pretty much. Yeah, you're right, most folks did. And, it does run in the family genes. I just wish I had a better way to get things done over all. Of course, one of the projects required Duct Tape... lol...

There's just always something more to do...and, even when I do have a solution, my health isn't always up to it... still, my motor is running. And, I just keep trucking along. ~smiles~
