I went to the inauguration on Tuesday and it was a completely amazing experience. Me and my friends went down to the DC area the night before and crashed at my parents house. It was lucky considering every hotel within fifty miles of DC was booked or so it seemed. We woke up at 2:30 in the morning just to catch the train into DC. We were so lucky because my aunt works in one of the building on Pennsylvania Ave right on the parade route. That’s where I was. It was huge party with friends, family and her coworkers. There was food and real toilets!! (I can’t do the port-a-potty thing) We watched the speech on a jumbo screen television and then watched the parade from the balacony. It was so cool. We had a great view. I think the best part of the day was that everyone sensed the history surrounding them and people were a little nicer to each other that day. Smiles were a little bigger, and despite the cold, everyone was a little happier.
I don’t know if Barack Obama being President will suddenly change the world. But I walked away with a sense of hope for the future. He’s one man and he can’t do it alone. But having attended, I think he’s going to get a lot of help.
After seven years of a self-imposed exile from family and friends, fashion designer Jocelyn Winters is home to celebrate her father’s upcoming wedding. Before she can enter into the joy of the occasion, though, she must first make amends for leaving everything she knew and loved behind—which means facing her childhood sweetheart.
Seeing the hot, sexy rancher after all this time makes her realize she still loves him. But a painful secret from her past stands between them, one she’s determined to keep.
Cade Devlin loved Jocelyn until their bitter breakup put his heart on permanent hiatus. He thought he was over her—until she turns up at the ranch, forcing him to admit that her abrupt departure all those years ago still stings. It’s disturbing how easily she once again consumes his thoughts…and how he still can’t keep his hands to himself when she’s around.
Their attraction is stronger than ever. Yet Jocelyn’s secret is a silent reminder that she can never let him back into her heart—unless she wants to break his all over again.
Dante Grimaldi has traveled the world to track down an elusive rogue vampire and its cohorts who are responsible for the torment of his family. Now, they’ve crossed the final line by kidnapping the Grimaldi offspring. In a race against time to save his family, Dante will destroy anyone who gets in his way. Even the sexy shape-shifter who has offered to help him in his search, if he has to.
Isis Vasquez fell for Dante at first sight. But there’s one problem; she has a past connected to his enemies. It’s redemption she’s after when she offers assistance to the Grimaldi clan, really. Okay, but being close to Dante is a big added bonus.
When they work together, the attraction is instant. The sexual tension threatens to set the world on fire. But can they work out their differences before she’s subject to Dante’s wrath?

I used to love this freakin’ video. These guys were so cute.
This was my absolute favorite chirstmas gift!!
Apparently, I’m the last person on Earth who learned about the Rick Rolling phenomenon. Basically, it’s an internet thing where you click on a video link thinking you’re going to watch one thing, but instead a video or Rick Astley singing Never Gonna Give You Up comes on. I must admit me though, I love this song, and Rick Astley is now my hero for being such a good sport. He Rick Rolls the country at the Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade. My hat is off to you sir. I love Rick Rolling!!
1. Parents who allow their kids to skate with those sneakers that have those wheels in the heels at inappropriate places…like the grocery store where I’m just trying to buy some milk. Yet I’d be the one in the wrong if I tripped the kid. *sigh*
2. People who are too friggin’ lazy to take their shopping cart back where they belong. Instead they leave them right smack in the middle of the parking lot for someone to hit or to roll into someone’s car.
3. People who don’t say thank you when you hold the door for them. That’s kind of rude.
4. People with 9000 tattoos and piercings on their bodies who get mad if other people stare. I’ll qualify this by saying I have tattoos myself an and have had piercings. If I wear clothing that will reveal them, I’m sure some people will look. Yes, it’s rude to make unsolicited comments or judge people, that’s not what I’m talking about. But don’t get nasty with someone for simply looking. Yeah, that means you guy at the mall.
5. Guys over thirty with mohawks. Come on. That’s pretty self explanatory.
6. People who breathe over my food. Ick.
7. People who won’t take the hint when I offer them gum…over and over again. I mean I could be offering to be polite because I wanted a piece for myself. But if I keep insisting, it’s probably because your breath stinks.
8. People who just won’t let go. You know who you are.
9. Rude customer service representatives. We know when something goes wrong, it’s not the fault of the person on the other end of the line. They’re just doing their jobs for the most part. But being an asshole when a customer is frustrated only makes matters worse. People skills should be a requirement to deal with the public.
10. Writer’s block.
11. Mean spirited people. The true measure of one’s character isn’t how nice you are to someone, but how nice you are to someone when you don’t have to be.
