Dream Time: Race Through the Haunted House

The night of 1/18/19, I had another spooky dream.  I get them often, and though they are unpleasant while I’m in the middle of them, sometimes they can be interesting to think back on during daylight hours.  The dream revolved around an abandoned, probably haunted house.

100 Theme Blog Challenge No. 23: Cat

The newest topic for the 100 theme challenge is cat, a subject I have already discussed many times in the past, particularly in regards to my current cat Elsa and the two I lost a few years ago, Alex and Arwen.  Since I have already talked a great deal about them, I thought it would be rather fun to tell you all about a cat that had an impact on me despite only knowing it for one short week.

Dream Time: A Safe Place in a Spooky House

Good day, the Duck’s got another random dream to share with you all.  On the night of 1/15/19, I dreamt I was in my house, but it was different, with a different layout and two stories.  It was very dark, and I was hearing some strange noises.  I was standing on one end of the house looking at the other, but from here, I couldn’t see where the noise was coming from.  It sounded like people, though, and I was considering calling the police.

My Bonsai Loses Some Weight

Just thought I’d write a little update on what my azalea bonsai has been up to.  I am terrible at taking care of plants, but alas, the tiny tree baby is still alive…for now anyway.  At one point, I found a white fluffy mealybug sitting on a branch around some tiny webs I suppose it had created.  Not wanting to get anywhere near it, I used a kabob stick to eliminate it.  It’s the only bug I’ve found, so I think it was the one responsible for the bite I found in one of my bonsai’s new leaves….

Listmas 2018: My Duck-et List

For my final Listmas post, though Christmas itself has passed, I’d like to write about the Duck’s bucket list.  I haven’t written a bucket list since 2013, and…my goals have certainly changed a lot.  Nowadays, my goals are a lot more…Disney/theme park-related.  If you’re interested, the old bucket list is here.  Below, the Duck’s updated 2018 list: Continue reading Listmas 2018: My Duck-et List

Listmas 2018: Piano Songs (Past and Future)

Since last year, the Duck has returned to the piano with a renewed determination.  In that time, I have taught myself six songs, all of which I recorded and uploaded to our Virtual Bastion Youtube channel.  Those videos have also been posted on my blog and listed below, for added convenience and exposure. Continue reading Listmas 2018: Piano Songs (Past and Future)

Listmas 2018: Lesser-Known Movies from my Ducklinghood

In recent weeks, the Duck has become quite focused on uncovering the identities of old movies I watched as a duckling.  You see, I have many fond memories of either borrowing movies from the library or renting them from the local VHS rental store.  And so, I’d like to list all the lesser known (basically, non-Disney) animated children’s movies I watched as a duckling.  Without further ado… Continue reading Listmas 2018: Lesser-Known Movies from my Ducklinghood
