Wacky Wednesday

Every year since Harry Truman was in office, the president pardons a turkey.

President Bush pardoned Pumpkin the turkey (named by the American people via Web vote on the White House website) Wednesday morning.

So what happens then to a pardoned turkey?

It goes to Disneyland.

That's not a joke. The turkey really is going to Disneyland.

To see more read the entire article.

Man I love reading stuff like this. It makes the end of the work day seem that much closer!

Tuesday Tidbit

I found an interesting article on yahoo about men and why they cheat.
What do you think?

Dating 101

When you're dating a guy, you can forgive him for some indiscretions, but it's nearly impossible to turn the other cheek if he strays. Well, Cosmo did some investigating to ascertain the traits that may make men more likely to cheat, and some of our findings were surprising eye-openers.

But before you freak, realize that just because he possesses characteristics of a mangy scoundrel doesn't mean he's actually cheating on you. "You have to listen to your gut as well as read the clues," says Gary Aumiller, Ph.D., a psychologist and coauthor of "Red Flags! How to Know When You're Dating a Loser." Run through this list of wandering-eye warning signs to see if your partner is predisposed to prowl... and find out how you can deal.

They go on to list 4 factors and have links to other articles on men cheating.
I have to say that their list doesn't surprise me, and I'm thrilled my husband doesn't fit all of those things ;)

I blogged at LAW about finding the right publisher.

I hope you find my blog helpful whether you are just starting out as a writer, or have been one for years.

Maniac Monday

I don't get it.
I write erotic romance. Why would I want to link with a game company? Or any of those other people who email me to ask me to link to them. Erotic stuffies and games. Unless they are sexual games, I just don't think we're compatible, hon.
I've turned down a couple that might have been good, but it was one of those things where I couldn't decide if I wanted to 'endorse' their products.

Guess I'll just keep an eye on my email and look for more offers of linkage.

Maniac Monday

Well it certainly has been a maniac weekend. I wrote about 9k this weekend and am feeling really happy that I finished Leandros 3. Now I just need to edit it, and start working on my Jewelry series :) YAY.

Many people participate in NANO. I do as well. Every year I sign up, and every year I fail. I think it is just the knowledge that I have to write 50k or everyone will know I can't, that makes it so I can't. LOL Did I make sense? Well, I'm signed up again even though I know I won't write 50k this month. I can. I could. But because it is Nano I won't even come close.

Rules. For some reason they hinder my ability to write. If you are sitting there thinking that you aren't going to sign up for Nano because you can't possibly write 50k in a month, you should sign up. There is bonding, and speedwriting sessions, there are others you can talk to about writing and your short comings or successes.
Even if I don't win, I'll still be signing up for Nano next year. Winner or not, I enjoy the time I spend speedwriting and chatting with my writer friends.
