Merry Christmas

I just wanted to take a quick moment and wish all of you a very merry Christmas. Everyone here, both the folks who post often (Haven, Keira, you delightful wits!) and all of you who lurk and read–yes, I know about all of you, I do see the stats.

Speaking of stats, did you realize that people from all over the world have visited this blog–from far off places (at least far off to me!) such as Brazil, Iran, Serbia and Montenegro, Finland, Russia and even the Sudan. When I look at the world map and see that my quips … Read more »

Christmas Meme

Here is a fun one that Christina over at The (Mis)Adventures of a Single City Chick tagged me with. Being a hit or miss sort of person when it comes to memes (believe me, I love them, I just don’t always get them) here is a meme I am happily to play along with.

Instructions: Please share 12 of your favorite Christmas things (or Hanukah is applicable): they can be memories, traditions, songs, presents, beliefs, whatever it is about this season that you love.

1) The first and foremost thing I love about Christmas are the lights. It is so … Read more »

I'm on Romance Novel TV!

When I was at the New Jersey conference in October, I was invited to sit down with Sophia Nash and be interviewed for Romance Novel TV. How fun is that! I’d been dying to do one of those interviews, but after they asked me and I enthusiastically said yes, then came the email that said to show up in “camera ready makeup.” Huh?

You have to realize, I am so not the makeup girl. I don’t put it on unless I am going out. Like really out, in real public. Not up to school to pick up the kids … Read more »

A Creature of Habits

I really am a creature of habits and rituals. Take my morning writing routine. I wouldn’t even think of sitting down without my double shot latte, nonfat milk and two teaspoons of raw sugar. Not only a routine sort of person, but a high maintenance one at that. No other time in the year do I feel the pull of rituals and routine than I do in December. The holidays bring out the worst in me.

The “to-do” list becomes the “must-do” list. Must get the house decorated. Must bake enough cookies to give everyone a plateful. Must make the … Read more »

Seattle 0, Mother Nature 2

So for the second December in a row, Seattle got slammed with a storm that reminded all of us out here that while we might not get snow, or tornadoes, or hurricanes, Mother Nature doesn’t leave us out. Here are some photos from my poor neighborhood, which is slide prone to begin with–heck, we just got the main road in and out of our neighborhood opened a month ago after it had been closed for nearly two years, after a slide in 2005 closed it for nearly a year, and then last year, a week after it reopened, the wind … Read more »

I do too have a life . . .

Continuing my cinema themed posts this week, I saw this on a Myspace bulletin and thought it was interesting. Supposedly if you’ve seen over 85 movies, you have no life. I beg to differ because I love movies and think they add to life in ways books can’t sometimes. Still, I decided to take the survey and see how I fared. If you want to do it here are the rules:

1)There are 208 movies on this list.
2) Copy this list.
3) Then put an X next to the movies you’ve seen, and add them up.

Have fun!

It's December so I should be shopping, right?

Wrong. To me, December means head to the nearest multiplex because all the good movies are coming out. May/June/July and December are the best months for movie goers, so I always start scanning the holiday movie releases early to see what looks great. A few years back, the DH and I spent the week after Christmas doing nothing but hitting movies–I think we saw Walk the Line, King Kong and two others that I now can’t remember that week. It isn’t the holiday cookies that give me those extra 5-10 pounds we all gain at the holidays, but the … Read more »
