Run for your life!

A combustion scientist is at the turkey fryer!

Yup, the cutie is an R&D man [research and development] and he loves to push the limits of the set in stone directions just to see what happens. There we were out in the rain frying up the turkey...ever hear water and oil don't mix? What about water and boiling oil? The sizzling sounds were fabulous and the turkey was even better.

Can't wait to see what he does for Christmas!

A sexy bit of rough!

Oh yes, we packed up the in-laws and went to see Casino Royale this weekend...this Bond is spot on! What 00 agent isn't going to have a brutal, ruthless, side to go with his handsome and refined appeareance? Nope, my idea of James Bond is just like this one, fighting, killing, pulling out secrets and confident in his ability to do it well.

So, hear hear for Daniel Craig!

Muttering, whistling, singing...

without a care for those sitting beside you is absolutely annoying! Can be bloody rude in fact if everyone else is trying to talk. So, please, keep it to yourself, some of us don't want to listen.

As for the muttering, enunciate!

Okay, phrew, rant over...the day is sunny, gorgeous in fact and I have loads of work to get on with that I'm excited about :-)

Is curling a sexy sport?

Curling, a winter team sport [men and women both] where they slide granite stones down an iced lane, making points when their stones stop as close to the centerpoint as possible. It's all about precision and very graceful when they slide down the ice. Now there is a new side to female curlers not many have seen before, but you can see it in their calendar for 2007.

WOW! Yes, absolutely! Curlers are sexy!

Go to The Curling News and buy their calendar, it supports these everyday womem and their sporting endeavour.

It's Friday and this one...

is a Ladies Lunch day. Yup, once a month a group of us drop everything and get together to just natter at a random local restaurant. They hate us, we take our time to order, eat and leave...they definitely hate us.

This one snuck up on me. Usually I schedule my writing so I'm at a good stopping point but that didn't happen this time. I'm right in the middle of Alaska [loving where the plots going] and will have a difficult time stepping away...but I will and I'll enjoy it!

On a sad note, a fly got in the house this morning and I gave him the spray. Now he's dying a violent and prolonged death on the windowledge...oh man, the guilt is immense.

Every knows I love pop-ups!

But did you know that there was a group who sued a publisher over a pop-up?

Yup, they sure did. The group blamed the publisher for snaping their partners spines when trying to duplicate a particular pop-up...with a mis-fold. Oops! The bad side is there were deaths, and I'm sorry, but the lead lawyer is quoted for saying: ...some of the positions are "just sick and wrong" and that "You'd have to be a friggin' yoga master, to be able to do what's on page 85!" and all I can do is laugh!

Well, needless to say the group lost but this still cracks me up...what are you people doing?

The annual breast squishing is finally over! For me this is a really difficult time, the insecurities rage once the appointment is made. I've been through the scares enough times to make me grit my teeth when it comes to the mamogram. Add in my superstitious mind [original appointment was the day after the cutie was hit in the head with the baseball] and I was way stressed.

Thankfully, all is good...the film will be sent to a second screener to check out an enhanced digitized picture but the ta-ta's look to have gained a gold star this year.

All year round is a good time to have the lovelies checked get to it!

I have some left over Halloween candy, the sun is shining, there is just a few things left on the "have to" list and I'm getting the final touches on the plot for my Alaska tale of love in the Arctic Circle! Yeah! I'm so very excited, there is less than a week remaining of political pollsters phoning and advertisements bombarding me on so many different levels, my victories are simple.
