My Halloween Adventures

I've talked about this before but now I'm going to share some pictures! Please know that as much as I wish I was... I'm not a photographer. So if these suck, I'm sorry. 

First, my friends and I went on a really cool train ride, we rode the oldest train in the lot and it was in three movies. No famous movies, all were indie/low budget but still, that's wicked.

It was actually the Chicago NW, it was never in use in Oklahoma. It's actually the warmest train in the lineup, insulated with horse hair. 

It was surreal to know I was sitting where people 100 years ago had sat many times to travel back and forth. I know that sounds strange but weird stuff like that always gets to me. 

A young woman could've sat in my seat on her way to meet her lover. A man on his way to work. A mother and child going to visit daddy at work. 

This was one of the trains that was currently out of commission but I thought it was really cool so I snapped a picture. 

That's all I have from the train as there wasn't much to show, sadly the route they usually take had been flooded and so they just drove us back and forth passed from trees. 

It was my first time on a train and I really enjoyed it.

Now! Onto the Museum of Osteology! I got a lot of cool pictures from this place and tried to get the info card that went with them. Now the lion that kicks off the pictures had no info card but he was just too cool to pass up!

I took more photos but sadly they didn't turn out so well when I try and put them on the blog. Still this was quite a bit! 

It was one of the coolest places I've ever been. I enjoyed it so much! Next time I'm going to buy some cool gift shop stuff to show you. 

Tell me what you thought! Would you ever go to this kind of museum? My mum's scared to death of skulls so she'd never go. 

That's all for this post! I hope you have a great day. Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
