Lord, I was born a rambling blog

Been awhile since I checked in. My lovely blog says Halloween. *grins* Sorry 'bout that.

I have a new term for you: Occupational hangover--when one ingests so much of their job that they have a headache. And yes...that would be me. At least as of late. Not the writing, mind you. The other job.
I also had my brakes go out on my van which was rather unpleasant. My lovely sister let me borrow a car so I wasn't completely without wheels. But I'm SO glad to get the van back!!!

The Red Dirt Festival was a lot of fun. I had a great time with Merline Lovelace and Christine Rimmer. We had a nice turnout, too. The next best thing to WRITING Romance would be talking about it. *grins* And we did.

I have Programmed for Pleasure out this month. Water Goddess in December. One Enchanted Evening in February 2008. Wind Goddess in May 2008. Earth Goddess in October 2008.
So guess what I'm doing right now?
Yep. *laughing* Editing.
I like writing ever so much better.

And some asshat on the news informed me that there were only like fortysomething days left to Christmas shop.
Are you kidding me? I don't have enough to worry about as it is? *sigh* Where in the hell has this year gone???

I saw something on the local news that just royally pissed me off. Oklahoma is 100 years old this year. Our big hoedown Centennial Celebration.
I've always considered Oklahoma my home. Born and raised here. And even though I moved (frequently) while married, I feel a kinship to this state.
So imagine my absolute horror at finding out a certain tribe from Oklahoma is calling it "100 Years of Theft."
I'm so glad I waited to write this because when I first composed this blog awhile back...I was livid. There was profanity a'plenty.
But here's the deal, in my opinion: Oklahoma is a great state BECAUSE of the mixing of cultures and heritages. I'm not saying I agree with this state's history as far as taking land or anything else. But can't we flippin' move on? Do you have to take a major milestone for this great state and monopolize it with your whining???
I have enough Indian blood in me to have a roll number.
So what?
It doesn't give anyone the right to slam all the good in a state because of a grudge. We've moved on. Why don't you???

*blowing out a breath and taking a calming one*
That's been simmering for awhile.

How've you been?

I agree -- it seems impossible that 2007 is drawing to a close. We must be getting old/er. ;-)

I've tagged you in a meme -- I hope you can play as I'm sure your answers would be interestink! :)
