Oooh, Johnny in a poofy shirt!

And long hair! Yippee skippy! My day has been made brighter by this sight alone. *sighs* Johnny is way on up there on my freebie list.

Apparently this movie Libertine is all about Johnny being depraved, debauched and hopefully, disrobed. Add to that the period costumes, corsets, ruffles, etc, and that's just the men! LOL. Plus he's bitchy, mean, nasty and apparently 'always up for it' with the ladies. A man that writes plays and does one for the king of England that is not very nice at all. A smartass, in other words. Hell yeah!

I may even go see this in the theater and for me, that's saying something as I am the champion wait for the DVD type of girl. I hate the theater, its smelly, dark, and the floor is sticky with what I am hoping is soda, but I aint betting on it. Plus people bring their screaming children to the darned things and allow them to whoop it up and down the aisles like heathens.

I will NOT have my Johnny time interrupted in this fashion. I'll bombard them with popcorn, see if I don't. On second thought, perhaps I should wait for the DVD. My family is used to my fits and foibles.

JOHNNY.. wow.

Tomorrow is Humpday !!

This Thursday is my hubby's bday. He'll be 37. Older than me and that's all that counts. Anyhoo, I love the man. So, I decided to do a little tribute to him today, in case in the festivities, I forget.

This is a slightly raunchy rendition of his favorite dragon named Nawty Ned with drunken revelry as the theme.

The picture, drawn by him, of course depicts the debauchery that can be found in our fair city of New Orleans this time of year. That's right, it is Mardi Gras again, yall. Les Le Bon Temp Roulle (spelling?) and in the immortal words of Nawty Neddie, "Lets git drunk, nekkid, and pretend we're married."

Happy Birthday Bill!!!

With Love,

Color me surprised NOT!

The Evil Princess
You are drawn to the sinister side of life and
gravitate towards darker things. You are
quite proud of your dark side and often
flaunt it. Your sinister nature and your
willingness to be cutthroat often result in
you playing the villainess.
Role Model: Snow White's Stepmother
You are most likely to: Team up with an evil dragon
to spread terror across the countryside.

Updates and Freakouts

I have no clue as to what I'm doing. I'm a new author, brand spanking new. I've been a writer online for about 4 years now, playing at it, as I say. However, there comes a time to put away the play and try for the pro league. I've moved out of the sandlot and onto the big leagues as it were. Well, ok, I'm in the minors, but I'm moving on up, learning day by day and I love it so far.

Each time I get an ok, we want your story, I get goosebumps, I cry, I eat a gob of chocolate and then I get busy. Life's good for me in 2006. I shall forevermore remember it as the year I became an author.

2006 may be the year I crash and burn too, but hey, like Def Leppard's song says.

Better to Burn Out Than Fade Away.

Ok, Fine! Yes, I did say that quote for an excuse to put my fav band from the 80's. *sighs* Mmmmmmhmm. Where was I? Oh, yeah.

*crossing fingers*

Here I go into the wild black and white yonder of print/ebook and goodness knows what else. I wanted to thank Meme and Nee (Mad Cows ala Bovinas Locas as Karen says) for my two reference books, the last of which I did receive today. May my writing become enriched by them and may I learn a little something as well. Love yall!!!

I am a mad cow.. but, I'm just one of the herd.
Beware the Bovinas Locas!! Moooohahahhah

Guess what I got in my email box today?

No, not that freaky little nekkie pic virus.. puleeeze! If some twit had actual nekkie pics of moi, he or she'd be too much blinded by my beauty (snorts) to think, much less email me about it.

Nope, I got one of the most wonderful phrases in the English language, to a writer, at least. It was: We are happy to offer you a contract with our company.

My heart went pitter pat, I cried, I squealed, I ran around the room like a twit. I even did the happy dance. I'm caucasian, it aint a pretty sight lemme tell ya.

I had submitted my story and had to revamp and then resubmit. I didn't actually think I'd made the cut, but I had. Lo and behold, I'm now in possession of not one but two publishing contracts. Me! The lil bumpkin from down in the back forty. I'm gonna be in print! The big time, the .. eh! I am just about to pass out!

And let me tell you this, every single time you get that email, it feels damn good! It is a validation of you and your writing. Its something you create yourself, from whole cloth, out of your wacked out imagination that nobody else can claim or take from you. It's mine and someone else wants it, therefore it must be valuable. Yes, I do have tears in my eyes. Yes, I did do my dedications and I did cry then too. I'm such a big old whinge as Kitta would say. Kitta is my foreign friend, as I call her. She has all these little weird phrases that I love and sometimes understand on the account of my addiction to BBC TV in my old age and Dr. Who in my misbegotten youth.

As a writer I have my share of witty moments. I know I am verbally skilled at least on paper or the keyboard rather, but, when you have someone else say it, it just seems more true. Thanks so much for all that have stuck by me and helped me to get through the OMG I suck! phases that I go through with alarming frequency.

So, to all those little voices in my head. Here's your chance to shine. To all my insane mad cow friends, here's you chance to hear me whine.

Coming Soon....
