Thursday This n That

I washed the cat yesterday.  And then I used carpet cleaner on the carpet where she likes to lay - because clean cat on dirty carpet = dirty cat again. 

And no, I wasn't trying to procrastinate.  She needed a bath in a major way.

I'm actually procrastinating as I write this Wednesday night.  No, it's not procrastinating.  It's taking a break.  Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket.

I'd rather be fishing.

Yes, I do like cheese with my whine.  

I do this thing on my Facebook Page where I share crime-related news articles - usually with a thought or two of my own.  I shared one such story a few days ago and it blew up into a shitstorm.  Commenters being snotty, not being respectful, pushing their own agendas.  It had more pageviews of that than anything writing related ever gets.  And I deleted it.  Like this blog, my page = my rules.  There are plenty of other places to pull that crap.  I don't need to up my view count that way.  And if it's the only way to gain more pageviews, than I guess I'm doomed to have only a few here and there.  C'est la vie.

A friend of mine's daughter got accepted to Florida State.  Another homeschool kid like mine.  I remember when I first met them, she was just a wee little pixie in a princess dress.  Now, she's off to college.  Gah, I feel old.

Okay, that's all I got for now.  Back to editing for me.  How are things with you?


  1. Wow. I missed the storm. Sorry. I would have been in there swinging to protect your back. I've put a moratorium on social media for the most part. Politics would make me block people I otherwise find sane and consider friends. Of course, it always keeps me from posting my rants and prevents the reverse--them blocking me.

    I'm backtracking on some of the Kindle World projects I'm involved in due to a "clarification" of Amazon policy. That means revisions and in once case, pulling the story completely and substituting a second story.

    I love whine and cheese.

    I have 6 days to completely revise a project. I have 20 days to write three chapters and a synopsis to send to NY. I'm going to go give myself a Jamberry manicure. Go catch a fish for me.

    PS--do you have hands and arms left? I'd have to wear chain mail and body armor to bath Adidas.

    1. Eh, you didn't miss much and they were fighting amongst themselves. I just can't tolerate that crap on my page. Someone else's? I can always hide that.

      Ugh, do I even want to know what happened with Amazon?

      LOL, me too! No wonder we're friends. ;o)

      You can do this. You're a lean, mean writing machine! I saw your mani. It looks awesome! And I will fish Saturday or Sunday, as long as it's not booming out.

      LOL, Kira is awesome in the tub. All she usually does is meow and hide her head in my cleavage. This time, she didn't even hide and started exploring the tub. Weird cat.
