Well, since I was rear ended yesterday, I woke up with back spasms. Went to the doctor and got some muscle relaxers. Right now, I’m feeling no pain and my fingers feel boneless, so that’s my rant for the night. Peace out!
Well, it snowed today, and I left work early because I hate driving in the stuff and wanted to get home before it got really bad and wouldn’t you know it, I was rear ended. If it weren’t for bad luck, I don’t think I would have any luck at all. *sigh* I’m still trying to figure out the Dante phenomenon but to all you faithful readers of my rants, I’m still researching the issue. Although I’m quite pleased that so many people have seemed taken with Mr. Grimaldi, his brothers are starting to feel a little left out, especially GianMarco since it was his story. Oh well. Poor GM, I will make it up to him in my other stories. Peace out.
Well, I’m starting to get feedback from fans on GianMarco’s Muse, and the verdict is out. 90% of the woman all wanted more Dante. Hmmm, I looked through my story to find out what his appeal was. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love all my characters, equally, but apparently there was something about Dante that stood out that made people ask about him. Was it because he was tall and dark with piercing blue eyes, was it because he’s the oldest, was it because he has a big willy or was it because he’s just so damn smooth. Hmm, I will have to examine this Dante phenomena more closely and get back to you later on it, in the meantime, the Queen of Procrastination strikes again. I was watching American Idol when I should have been writing. I have to slap myself on the hand for that. My prediction is that Scott and Travis are going home. Too bad so sad, but at least they made it this far and not a lot of people can say that. Well, gotta run. Peace out!
Okay, I am back from Celebrate Romance!!!! I had a wonderful time, I met fellow authors from my publishers like Camille Anthony(my roomie), Madeline Oh, Stephanie(Flash)Burke, Judy Mays, Ann Jacobs, Treva Harte, and met my editor from Changling Press Caroline, and partied with the famous Mama Z of Changeling Press. All very nice ladies (I hope I didn’t leave anyone out if so, I’m sorry, my brain is fried) I am so exhausted, and let me tell you there were so many other authors there that I was so star struck. I felt like such a stalker because I kept watching them and not believing I was in the same room with the. I met Mary Balough (love her slightly series) very nice lady, but the person who blew me away with how nice she was was Mary Jo Putney. Love her!!!! I loved everyone I met. I partied at Flash’s house, that woman is a nut, but we wouldn’t love her so much if she wasn’t. She’s so thin and beautiful. (I hate her!! lol) Her costumes are so wild but she carries it well and she has men staring at her wherever she goes. *sigh* I will I had that swing. Anyway, I had a good time, hey I even signed a couple autographs, who would have thought someone would want my little old signature, lol. Anyway I won a couple of baskets and my friend hated me for it. Bwahahahaha, and I won the Diane Whiteside basket with alcohol and all. Yea!!! I never win anything. All in all this weekend was great, and I’m looking forward to next year!!! Peace out.
Well, this is my last rant until Sunday. I’m going to Celebrate Romance in Baltimore. Yippy. That should be a blast. GianMarco’s Muse came out tonight at Loose-id and I’m pretty excited about that. Well, I am going to keep this short and sweet and say, if you can’t please everyone, then you should at least try to please yourself, which is what my new goal in life has become. Peace out.
You know if you get 14 inches of snow, you at least hope they close your office, but no, not my job. Oh well. I think I hurt my shouler shoveling my car out this morning. Ouch. I had good intentions to get lots of writing done today but that went down the drain. Oh well. This is a short rant because I’m tired. Peace out!!
Well, Jaime Foxx won the Oscars and yippy, so did Morgan Freeman. I love Morgan Freeman. Jaime Foxx should have won the award simply for the fact that he became Ray when he acted in that movie. It was so good. I bet Annette Benning was pissed to lose to Hilary Swank yet again. Poor Annette. Is it me or is Sean Penn an a-hole. I mean really, get a sense of humor buddy, we’re all sure Chris Rock knew who Judd Law is of he would not have even brought up his name. Sean, take a chill pill. What was up with what Johnny Depp was wearing. He looked like Colonel Saunders illegitmate son. He use to be so hot, not he’s just weird. Oh well, I have a new release with Loose-id coming out, the first in my vampire series. I’m biting my nails. I’m hoping its well recieved. Oh well, I have to roll, but peace out!!
Well, I have a lot to rant about tonight. I sign on AOL and I see a picture of Charles and Camilla. Who the f**k cares about those two. You couldn’t pay me enough to care. The minute those two start paying my bills I just might be able to muster up an opinion but in the meantime, I’m getting tired on seeing them everywhere, kind of like Paris Hilton. They’re on my people I wish would disappear list. Anyway, let me tell you something that does matter. I am no longer cool. That’s right, I said it. I’m no longer cool. Do you remember where you were when you found out you were no longer cool? Well, I have a 15 year old brother who keeps me posted on all the lastest slang. He and I were talking and I said something was ‘Da Bomb’. Well apparently saying da boom is no longer cool, and I have been using it quite a but lately. Hey, when the heck did I ever lose touch with all the hip hop slang. I think the new tear is ‘Hot to Death’ I hate that term. I guess that means I am now officially an old fart, hell, I thought I would at least reach thirty before that happened. I remember in high school being to cool to go with this guy to the prom because he wasn’t ‘cool’ enough. Now I’ve become the fogey. Waaaaa. As I sat at the computer writing my heart out, I tried to recapture my youth by listening to my N’Sync and New Kids on The Blocks CDs. Yes dammit, I still listen to the New Kids on The Block so get off my damn back!! Well, after listening to those CDs I realized, I’m never going to get my hay days back. *sniff* N’Sync is through, the NKOTB are in th AARP and Marky Mark has abandoned his Funky Bunch. And I don’t give a damn if Mark Walberg doesn’t want to be called Marky Mark. He will always be Marky Mark to me. Well, I’m off to finish watching the Oscars. If Jaime Foxx doesn’t win, I will be one pissed of lady. That’s my rant for the evening. Peace Out (which also I found out is no longer cool)
Well, Today I had grand plans of getting a lot of writing done. Ha. Haven’t I already said that I was the Queen of Procrastination. Well, I did something accomplished. I woke up this morning and went to the Beauty Supply store in Philly, then off to my Eye Doctor’s (did I already tell you that I was blind as a bat?) Then I went to Michael’s to buy some stuff for a few gift baskets I’m making for the conference I’m going to. I’m really excited about the conference. It’s the first conference I’ll be attended as a published author. Yea! It’s in Baltimore so I hope I can get some crab cakes while I’m down there. Right now I’m working on two stories for two of my publishers. Fortunately one of them only does novellas so that one won’t be as long or as much typing, but don’t get me wrong, writing novellas is just as difficult as writing full lengths if not more difficult because you basically have to cram the entire plot of Gone With the Wind within 30K words or less and still create a good story. *sigh* The challenges of a writer. Well, I’m going to try to get some writing in before I hit the sack. Peace Out!
Okay, Here is my rant for Friday. I’m too damned tired right now to rant, but I’m sure I’ll have plenty to rant about tomorrow. Peace out!
