The cutie outdid himself yesterday. I love watching the Oscars - okay, mainly for the fashion, rarely make it to the end of the show. Yesterday we went to run errands and hit a new shop in the mall, Dale and Thomas' Popcorn...yum! We brought back three - white chocolate and peanut butter, chocolate and caramel, and caramel - the first is my favorite. Chowing down on it for lunch...I'm sure its nurtrious :-)

So, now that the hoopla is finished, were there any movies I wished I'd seen and hadn't, yes, without a doubt. We seem to live in a dead zone for something that outside the blockbuster realm.

Because of the international feel, I did start to remember some of my old foriegn favorites and some of the smaller flicks. Have you seen any of these:

A Room with a View
Babette's Feast
Cat People [w/Simone Simon]
My Beautiful Laundrette
My Left Foot
Red Shoes
Queen Margot
Triplets of Belville
Just about everything from the Gong Li/Zhang Yimou relationship [Ju Dou, Raise the Red Lantern, The Story of Qui Ju - the latter is an absolute must see]

I've been tagged!

Oh boy, I've been tagged by the saucy erotic romance author, RaeLynn Blue, over on myspace, and thought I'd share the gory details over here as well. I’ve never done this before so let’s see how I do. Apparently I've got to tell you 10 things about myself and then tag another ten to do the same. So, here we go!

1. I love all the seasons but my favorite is summer…nice and toasty with the minimal amount of clothes required.

2. I’m a weeper - commercials, movies, books, and yes the news - if the cutie is nearby he whispers, “Humidity rising?” then takes hold of my hand.

3. I like white food junkie: Twinkies, mashed potatoes, corn, chicken, chips and chocolate [nope, not white but I like it no matter how it comes].

4. I was going to be a fashion designer, even went to school for it and then found out I couldn’t sew worth beans.

5. I like hats - big fabulous creations of artistic wonder - and baseball hats to keep the rain away instead of an umbrella.

6. I’m an organizational freak who sucks at cleaning house.

7. I grew up at the beach and still wear a bikini, having curves is nothing to be ashamed of.

8. According to the cutie and occasionally I agree, I sometimes dress like my mother and I know I sound like her at times too. It’s not so bad, she’s a pretty fabulous woman.

9. I just bought boys socks…they fit and were there.

10. I’m very lucky: I like where I’ve been and where I’m at, who I was and who I am, and I can’t wait to see what the future sends my way!

Okay, the next people I'd like to spill their guts are:

Kara Griffin Leigh Ellwood Louise Bohmer James Buchanan
Michelle McGriff Jude Mason Karen Erickson Michelle Pillow
Jaycee Clark Sherrill Quinn

Boots? Yup, today it's about boots!

Last monday we went away, a couple of different places were on the agenda and we decided to drive and enjoy the easy pace. First night, we had no hot water, second night the electricity was out for 16 hours before we decided to leave, third night was just right, only there was a fourth night because of road closures. We finally made it home a day later than we'd planned to a driveway covered in ice, 3 inches of the hard beast. Snowblower wouldn't do it, so we took a pic and shovels to it, even the 7 inch iceberg at the base and now, now I'm home and happy I took my boots with me.

Yup, I lived in these wonders all week - even out to dinner for Valentine's - and am eternally grateful for their rusted eyelets, salt stained, comfort.

Long live the boot that is big enough to wear two, and yes, at one point even three pairs of socks.

Dragon Lust by Tilly Greene is OUT!

That's right, Dragon Lust by Tilly Greene is now available at loveyoudivine

Ryder Smythe and Taylor Andersen, homegrown boys now in the big city, want to start the weekend with a night of wicked indulgences.

Alice Jones comes in search of a way to release the tension of the week, only she finds so much more.

O'Reilly's is an average bar where people went to find their personal pleasures, no matter how odd or different they may sound and on one particular Friday night, a dragon reigns supreme.

It wouldn't have surprised anyone if they'd walked right out of a fashion advertisement in their faded t-shirts, well-worn button fly jeans, complete with holes and frayed edges, and sneakers. But she'd bet the house their normal clothing for work was suits, shirts and ties.

Without a doubt they'd look just as handsome in those fancier clothes as they did in these casual togs.

This bar was special, a place where no false promises were ever offered. She'd chosen to wear something that flagrantly showed the state of mind she was in. Tonight she was eager to please the right man, or men, and the condition of these twos cocks made it clear they'd come for more than a casual beer.

The discomfort in her knees and odd position of her arms refocused her attention on the man who held the key to her fulfillment. Her body hummed with excitement.

Yes, tonight would be a spectacular night.

Start your weekend right, head over to loveyoudivine and pick up a copy of Dragon Lust by Tilly Greene.

My oh my, where is my mind today!


well, kind of but not quite...ummm...okay, let's just say I'm ready for the dragon's release tomorrow! In preparation, and because it's almost Valentine's day, loveyoudivine authors, including myself, will be playing over on their loop from 12-8:00pm est.

See you there, I'll be the one with the sexy dragon at my fingertips :-)

Enjoy and have a good laugh today!

Flippin' Frigid!

Yes, I'm talking weather and it's bloody cold here - Google weather is telling me its 14/F - and yet I just hung up from my sister who is feeling chilled at 58/F! Grrr!

I'm not that upset over the Bears loss but am over the dull commercials. The lions on the Taco Bell were great, laughed on those, and also thought all the coke ads were pretty good. Really liked the one for Black History Month - simple and powerful [and unfortunately couldn't find it on the net to watch again]. I don't remember seeing a Bud with clydesdales in it [other than the dog getting spots].

Time for the good news..."Ride 'em" has been submitted and now I'm working on Taming Marie Antoinette. Not much of a surprise it takes place in Paris. Yes, I actually did research while I was there :-).
