Ayuh. I'm thirty-five.

Happy Sunday all!

It's my birthday. I'll be out of the house all day. But I'm leaving my horoscope for the day as the post.
I think it sums it up nicely.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Dancing between fantasy and reality has become your way of life as you attempt to reach your dreams while keeping your feet on the ground. If you have been working too hard, now it's time to once again regain your balance. But this isn't time to give up if something is standing in your path. Don't get discouraged; determination and extra effort can make the difference.

Well then. I've got a lot of determination. So it'll all work out. Now. If I can only get that damn balance thing down.

I inhale...I exhale

Let me just get this off my chest. I'm having personal problems. And the damn things seem to be interferring with life in general. Sorry bastards. So apologies to everyone who popped by only to see a week-old blog. Me=do better. rocks!!!
I attended the Romance Writer's Panel Discussion in Norman sponsored by the Norman Arts Council and had the BEST time. The best. Yep. You heard it here first.
The crowd was great. Ron Stahl is wonderful. Mel Odom, Sharon Sala, and Christine Rimmer are absolutey fantastic. It was one of the best professional experiences I have ever had. Had lunch at Legends in Norman. (Never been) And the food was delicious.
Robyn, who drops by here on occasion, won my door prize. A $50 B and N gift certificate and a basket of hershey kisses. Books and chocolate...what else does one need? So Hi Robyn! Hope you enjoy the books you get.

I took names and emails to send out a free book to those that stopped by my table. (Yes. I had my own table!) I didn't realize I would have that so I didn't have many books. And my postcards didn't make it on time. Damn it again. But I'll send everything out when I get it. The book offers will be sent out this weekend.

*deep breath*

Valentine's Day? That would hereby be known as Black Wednesday. Next year it shall be Black Thursday. Get the picture? It isn't a pretty one. So. Valentine's Day officially sucked for me. Thankyouverymuch. Now let's move on.

I had my hair done today. Straightened and highlighted. And it's pretty. I absolutely love it. Will I straighten it everyday? Probably not. But right now, I'm enjoying it.
I'm going out tomorrow and kicking up my almost thirty-five year old heels. Drinking, dancing, whatnotting. Ya know. Fuzzy details may be provided if I remember them. *grins*
Also...doing a little something for myself tomorrow before I go out. Pictures will be posted. hehehe
Can't wait, can you?

My birthday is Sunday. Actually at 8:02 in the morning. So I'm pretty sure I'll sleep past the actual time. But the chickens and I plan on going to see that new movie with Nicolas Cage. Where he's that death dude on the motorcycle? I can't remember if it's Pale/Death/Ghost Rider. But you know the one to which I refer. Can't wait. Looks highly entertaining.

Take care of yourselves. Stay warm. It's flippin' snowing here again. I swear. And yes. I did swear.

Now...THIS is romance

5,000-Year-Old Skeletons Locked in Embrace

Archaeologists in Italy have discovered a couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, hugging each other.
"It's an extraordinary case," said Elena Menotti, who led the team on their dig near the northern city of Mantova. "There has not been a double burial found in the Neolithic period, much less two people hugging -- and they really are hugging."

Here's the link for the photo.

Very touching. Can you imagine? I think it speaks of old romance. Seriously. Where just the right grunt and piece of animal flesh bonded you. And to be buried wrapped up in another? That's some serious stuff.

Who says romance is dead?
Oh, um. Right.
In this case, I suppose it is. At least in the earthly sense. But look at the long-term possibilities.

So THIS is what's going on...

Horoscope for the day:
Your life is reaching a crescendo and you might think everything is going to fall apart. But there is a profound reorganization occurring within your psyche as you process whatever is in the way of your progress. Find an acceptable way to express your buried feelings, especially anger, or potential rewards could elude you.

Well then. I feel very crescendo-like today. Like something is building up, though I haven't the foggiest what that may be. I suppose I'll excavate those buried feelings and deal in one way or another.
I AM going out this evening and drinking/dancing. Think that will do?

Still haven't gotten a desk put up for my computer yet. Thus, the sporadic blogging.

See? I just unburied some of my anger. *blinking* That was cathartic. *grins*
Probably best to eke this out a bit at a time.

I'm nervous about the Romance Writer's Panel Discussion next Friday. I'm not bringing a big stack of books to sign because:
A) The fact that I write Erotic Romance is going to spazz some co-workers out.
B) A lot of people will NOT buy Erotic Romance in front of others. (I have no such compunction. I used to buy Playgirl all the time in high school. hehehe)
C) I've decided to put up a nice door prize and pass out postcards with bookcovers on them.

Speaking of Erotic Romance...What He Wants is the #2 bestseller for WCP again. It's been out eight months and consistently pops up on the bestseller list. Gotta love it.

Personally...that's another blog.
Stay warm!!!

Nonetheless, I'm slightly freaking out. Me=peon. But, by God, I'm a budding peon. LMAO
