Tech stuff is a bit hard..

It is no longer Monday, now it's Tuesday, so are the days of our lives. Pffth! LOL I am putting my picture in the blog so I can see it. Have a good week.

On the book front, I am editing, and editing, and editing... and gahhh!

Come on Friday.

Big Thanks to Mechele Armstrong!

Double Snoopy Dance to YOU! LOL She helped me put the tigger up on the blog header. Not an easy feat for a techno challenged person like myself.

Anyhoo, happy Monday all! *gags*

Ok, I tried. LOL To be nice that is. Oh, the thanks still goes to Mechele, who makes even me smile and be sweet for all of five minutes at a time. Then, well, like a sugar high, I fall fast into the depths of depravity.

However, this does bring me to the reason for my blognatiousness today.

Are there people that make you better than you usually are? Nicer (as is the case with Mechele) smarter, happier, more patient? If so, how do they inspire that sort of improvement in what is otherwise one low down, mean assed, smart mouthed chicky from da bayou that just don't care about your opinion be it correct or otherwise.

I am not actively mean by any stretch of the imagination. I don't go around knocking over mailboxes for pension checks. (I did this once in highschool, knocked them down that is, not stole the checks out of them. Is there a statute of limitations on that? Is it a federal offence? eep! ssh, never mind) For me to be actively mean, I would have to you know, TRY. And that is beyond the realm of my giving a damn, if you must know.

But, I do not go out of my way to be NICE to others. I am sweet, but I am not nice. *sighs* I don't drown puppies. I am the person that will beat the livin snot out of the person that caught someone doing that sort of thing, though. I don't pinch babies. (don't volunteer to change their diapers neither)

And a small rant. I am not one of those people like this nurse I heard about that was pulling the fingernails off of the stroke patients because she felt stress. OMG! Ok, this is what I want to know. How in the hell do you justify this? You feel stress so you're torturing a person that cannot move or speak by pulling their fingernails off? Oh, honey chile, you just come on down here and visit with me. I can show you real stress.

On second thought, I am freakin nice. And I tell you this, those sweet darling nice people like Mechele and My Meems among others? She'd be the first in line to *stress* the incorrectness of that woman's behavior. In the nicest (and most er painful) way imaginable I'm sure.

Come on Friday!!

Lover of all things between Friday and Sunday.
Down with Monday

Hoorah For Me

I did have another blog, but I changed back to this one and just changed the name to suit my needs. No use adding to the baggage that weighs me down on a daily basis, huh? Onto the news. I have been offered a contract from Midnight Showcase for a novella in one of their upcoming anthologies.

While not due out until sometime next year. I am still way wicked psyched!! Woohoo!! The title of my story is The Moon of the Tigre. It involves a shapeshifter from a distant planet, who still searches for his heart's desire. He is a tiger, of course.

I've had a thing for shapeshifters for quite a while now. But, I never dreamed that it would lead to me being published!!!

I hope you will all come back and visit me on my road to publication. And I also hope this is only the beginning.

On another note, I also hope that my other resolutions are as satisfying as this! I am pretty sure the eat more chocy one will be, but as for the others, nah.

Back to the book,

Happy New Year!! 2006

Well, the new year is here. Can you believe it? I can't for sure. It seems like it was only yesterday I was celebrating by writing 2005 on my checks. Hell, it seems like only last week I was saying 2000? Really? Well party like its 1999.

What are your resolutions? I am gonna attempt 10

1. Lose some weight.
2. Exercise (mm, ew, gross)
3. Eat more chocy (I had to put ONE in here I knew I could keep)
4. Be nicer to my family. (It is harder than being nice to strangers somehow)
5. Go outside and sit, without complaining to my hubby about how hot/cold/sticky it is.
6. Smile more.
7. Finish my MS's before starting more. (Haa! yeah right)
8. Listen to the crickets and frogs at night w/out benefit of a noise machine.
9. Smoke less.
10.Be an author, not a writer. Do it, see it, be it.

So, what are yours?
