Victoria Elizabeth Barnes

Just like Casablanca… But with a better ending.

My whole life I have been full of random, useless ideas…  If just having ideas counted for anything, I would be the most productive person on the planet.

Before this blog, these ideas just lived in my head.
But now, I have YOU to foist them upon.

My Halloween date with Don Draper.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

An original Victorian bar in historic Old City, Philadelphia.

I was in Old City this weekend, filming a movie.

It’s a noir thriller… A tale of intrigue and surprising revelations.
Written by me. Also, directed, by me. And (obviously) starring me.

In other words – I started my Halloween post. AND IT IS AWESOME.
(last year’s Halloween front porch)

I am single-handedly redefining the phrase – stupendous magnificence.
Not to mention the phrase – making a spectacle of myself.

I am going nowhere but up… But first I need to lie here on the floor for a while.

I have to tell you that I was pretty crushed after my last post when not one single person said:
I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ARE HOLDING A SIGN IN FRONT OF CITY HALL.

I messaged this dismay to Lara and she said—they think it’s normal for you.
Even she did not seem surprised.

You made it up to me though, because every single one of your comments were the greatest thing ever… not to mention your shared appreciation for all factions of men in uniform.

Some of you were even generous enough to offer to send the Navy SEALS… Either for variety? Or, (I suspect) because you want to keep the Marines for yourself.

So I’ve been waiting…  I’ve been sitting around in my night-vision goggles and flippers, and THEY HAVE NOT SHOWN UP.

Forcing me to conclude that either you were lying, or the SEALS are less-good with directions than one might expect.

The day I walked around Philadelphia holding a sign that said—READ MY BLOG—The story of how my blog got popular.
