Pasta, public enemy #1

Well, its the beginning of the year and the whole world is probably on a diet, and already I’ve eaten more pasta than I should have, but why must it taste so good. My taste buds love it, but my hips and thighs don’t. Damn you pasta. I’ve tried the low carb pasta but it tastes like cardboard. *sigh* Oh well, I will cut down to once a week. I had some last night and since Saturday is the end of the week and Sunday is a new week, I can have some tonight. :-D

Why won’t R. Kelly go away?
Sunday, January 8th, 2006
Filed under Uncategorized

I was watching television and R. Kelly’s crappy video, Trapped in the Closet came on. First of all, I found it amusing at first, and now its just plain annoying. How is it possible for a man who was actually caught on tape having sex with a 14 year old child still on the streets. Apparently this isn’t his first offense either. He has sort of a history of sleeping with little girls. That’s called being a sexual preditor. Why are people still supporting a sexual preditor? I won’t even get into it with MJ, although no one has video proof on whether he did it or not, wouldn’t you think he’d back off the little boys? That’s another rant, but R. Kelly really does need to go away. From his sleeping with little girls to his crappy music, and then this travesty he calls a hip-hopera, his trial can’t come soon enough, and this time, I really hope this time the jury can look past the celebrity and see him for what he really is.

What the fu*k

I consider myself a reality show connoisseur, I’ve watched them all at one point or another, the Bachelor, The Real World, the Apprentice, Road Rules, Surreal Life, Celebrity fit club, Temptation Island, the Amazing Race, Survivor. You know it, I probably watched it. I think my fav reality shows are the ones are the ones with celebrities.

Well I think I’ve found the biggest train wreck reality show ever. It’s called the Flavor of Love. It’s a bachelor style show where twenty women compete to win the affections of Flavor Flav. Yes, that’s right. I said Flavor Flav. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. and did I forget to say Eww?

What were the requirements to be on this show? Was one of them that you had to be low class? Yikes, I can’t imagine what kind of woman would compete for a man who first all is not very attractive by anyone’s standards, and he has kids who doesn’t pay child support for. Yuck. What a prize. Not. Iguess people will do anything to be on television. Frankly I’d rather eat a Rhino’s penis on Fear Factor than to compete for Flavor Flav.

Will I pass up on this show? Well, as much as I’ll probably regret it, I just may watch the first episode just to see how much of a mess it really is. And I can garauntee it will be a hot mess.

More contemporaries to come

I’m going to focus on more contemporaries in the 06. I enjoy the paranormals, and won’t stop, but I only had one true contemporary this year, A Night To Remember. There’s something about writing contempories that give me a deep satisfactions. Maybe it’s because they flow well for me. I don’t know. But I enjoy writing them. I guess my problem is that I have way too many ideas in my head and not enough time to write them all. I think I should just be rich and then I would lay on my couch and dictate my words to a secretary. LOL, that would be the life. :-D

The Dante Dilemma solved
Thursday, December 29th, 2005
Filed under Uncategorized

I’m not really sure why I’ve been agonizing over this issue, because I’m not even starting his story until Feb…Maybe. When a set of characters of a story consumes my thoughts a large percentage of the time when I really should be thinking of other stuff, like my life, job, and my husband, it’s time to put that story aside. Let’s face it. I need a break from anyone with the last name Grimaldi. :-(

But on a lighter note, I did finally make the decision that whoever he ends up with won’t be mortal. That’s my only thoughts so far, because I’m not giving Dante or his family another thought until the 06. On a fun note, readers can chime in on my group to take the new poll I have up about Dante. It probably won’t influence my final desicion on who he’ll end up with, but I do consider reader input because it gives me ideas for future stories.

So here’s to me and my Grimaldi free life, for a least the next month. :-D WoooHooo!!

Dante Grimaldi….

is driving me nuts. The Blood Brothers series started out so fun to write, and it still is, but trying to figure out who the perfect mate for Dante will be has been a dilemma.A lot of readers have let me know who they’d like to see our hunky vampire with, and it’s given me a lot to think about.

I’ve already decided that it definitely won’t be Nya. First off, she’s a self-hating vampire. There aren’t many vampires that she likes. Dante is proud of his vampire heritage, and wouldn’t understand her I hate vampires rant, considering she herself is one.

Possibily it could be Montana although, she’s a little too raw for him. Dante likes his women a little more refined. Not saying that Montana isn’t, because she’s one classy broad, who just happens to tell it like it is, but the more I think about it, I’m not really sure that she’s the right one for him. For one thing, Dante has already been through so much crap. If I were to put him with a human woman, he’d do nothing but worry about her. Of course he could change her into a vampire, but she’d be young and weak (physically). He already worries about Maggie enough as it is, and she isn’t even his mate. *sigh*

I’m really leaning towards putting him with another immortal. Then there’s Dyannara. I think she has a bit of a crush on Dante and he may be fascinated with her as well, but I already did the witch thing with Niccolo’s story. So that leaves him either being with a vampire or a shifter.

There are two possibilities in mind. Both characters I haven’t put to paper yet, but have in my mind. One is a shifter, the other is a vampire fem, both of whom I’d think would make Dante a worthy mate.

For the Montana fans out there, even if I don’t put her with Dante (which is still under consideration), it doesn’t mean she can’t be a possibility for another family member. ;-)

Santa was here

Santa was pretty good to me this year, although I have no idea why because I’ve been a very bad girl this year. LOL Oh well, I didn’t really have much of a relaxing weekend, but on New Years, I don’t plan on doing a darn thing. WoooHooo!! I hope everyone had a very Happy Holiday and a wonder New Year!!

New Years Resolutions

New Years is fast approaching and a bunch of us will be making New Years Resolution of what we plan on doing, how much weight will lose and so forth. Me me me. Well, I think JFK summed it up best when he said “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. No truer words have been spoken.” Ask yourself what you can do for someone else in 2006. When you give, good things happen. Volunteer your time, work in a soup kitchen, volunteer to read to the elderly, whatever, just do your part. I’ve been working with Big Brothers and Big Sisters in my area for two years now. I’m paid in hugs and love and I think it’s truly taught me the true meaning of joy. Nothing feels better than giving. So while making that New Years Resolution to lose weight or to be nice to your siblings is great, volunteer some of your time. It’s the best gift that you could ever give to yourself.

Ambushed

I’ve been busting my ass at the gym of late and I was feeling pretty good after a particularly tough work out. After I walk out of my spin class, I get ambushed by a personal trainer there. Yikes! Did my ass jiggle just a little too much when I walked by. He wanted to work out with me, and being the suker that I am, I gave in and made an appointment with him for next week. *sigh* I felt so depressed I came home and ate some Doritos. :-(
