How is Sideshow Bob?

What, you don't remember him? He was the pre-lit palm tree we bought as our Christmas tree last year. Well, he was pretty hard to set up, so we decided to leave him be for the summer and spark up his world with red hot chilli pepper lights.

Woohoo! Yes, we kept the sand like burlap beneath him as well and Sideshow Bob [because that's who he resembles] kept us feeling like it was summer at the beach.

Unfortunately, yesterday the heat officially ended. It snowed. Brrr! So we turned his lights on last night and it was time to give him another look. Before Thanksgiving, we'll put some ornaments on him, and viola, Sideshow Bob will be ready for winter and the holidays!

eBook Talk!

My preferred format for reading is ebooks, except this has been tricky to do without my beloved pocket pc, especially when I have a pile that must be read. Because these books have to be read, I'm doing it on my laptop, and have found some authors where I'll be looking at their backlist for more.

The problem is, I like to read a book while soaking in a nice hot bubble bath and the laptop can't go into the tub. To make matters worse, I haven't been tempted by any new releases in the traditional format in ages.

So, what is this bookie doing? Simple. I walked up into the attic, went through my to be donated piles, and have been reading those. There's always something good to read lurking somewhere in the house, but I'm looking forward to whatever gadget Santa brings that will allow me to read eBooks in the tub!

I'm leaning towards the iPod Touch [as long as I can read pdf's] or Nokia N810. I have been tempted by others, like the iRex iLiad and the Readius, but seriously don't want a dedicated ebook reader.

It's all over except the singing!

That's right, I've voted and no longer have to listen to all the trash talk or finger pointing being tossed around the airwaves. What else has been ticked off my to do list?

I've completed "In Heat" and am now waiting for a release date!

I've finished "Call Me Lucifer", written up a synopsis, and submitted it for a publisher's consideration.

I've written a free erotic short called "Special Delivery" and it will be published on the Pink Chair Diaries. A site full of fabulous and free reads.

I've read 10 of 25 ebooks in 5 different categories I have to finish by the 5 of November...Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night, party time!

I've started the Christmas shopping for those to the left and right of us.

it's going to be a fabulous year of color!

We have the first tree on the street to change and it will drop its leaves before the one next to it even starts to change. The mulberry in back is one of the lasts. What does that mean? We'll be doing the leaf thing well into December when the snowblowing begins.

Oh joy.

eBook TBR pile looking low?

Well, now through Sunday October 12th, Fictionwise is offering 50% Rebates on every title!

Stock up people.

A bit of random ridiculousness...

This weekend I'd like to eat chocolate, drink Coca Cola, go see Rock-n-Rolla and Body of Lies, sleep in, watch some footie [both British and American], work on "Call Me Lucifer" and enjoy the lovely weather.

However, I have a new eating regime to stick to, laundry to do, Birthday and Christmas shopping to get started, more filing [a years worth] to do, bills to write, blah-blah-blah.

Which side will win out...or will it be a mix? Hmmm.
