Juiced

Juiced

So, today I’m sitting in Barnes and Noble, writing in this cute little 1.99 notebook I’d just bought along with what looks like three really good books. I’m not reading them — I’m writing. Dreck, but writing nonetheless. I’m drinking a Juiced Tea by Tazo. Yum. Mind is wandering because some young guy is checking […]

This Holiday Crap — Feeling Snarky!

Why the heck are we arguing over what to say this holiday season????? If you want to say Merry Christmas, go ahead. I love Christmas. I have a Christmas tree in my home. But also, don’t pick on people who prefer Happy Holidays. Truthfully, I prefer that one because for me, this season is about […]

Dirty Santa Outlaw Style

Well, when I agreed to take on my RWA chapter Christmas party in my home, little did I know that a bloodthirsty book frenzy would change this friendly group into backstabbing thieves.

It’s All About the Music Today!

Today, I’m working on the house and playing some of my fave CDs. I have one of those nifty speaker systems that is built into every room so I can listen anywhere. It’s up loud. Yeah. You will come to find upon further visits to my blog, that my taste in music is all over […]

Mountain View and SETI

Mountain View and SETI

Before I got distracted again, I was pondering the answer to the great Mountain View, California debate. I have this blog and two online stores with site meters. While it’s somewhat fun to look at the sad numbers and try to come up with marketing ideas, it’s more fun to see the locations of the […]

More on Description

This was going to be a fascinating, intelligent discussion on the contradiction of the term “objective reality” but I got distracted. I opened the newest issue of Cemetery Dance and my attention was caught by a prominently displayed book on the inside cover. If a person were to explain the cover in generic terms, they […]
