Okay, I’m bored. I NEED to do some lesson planning and will. I have time scheduled today for KK and probably 1st and 2nd to go with it. But right now…

I know. I’m procrastinating.  I need to write as well. I had a serious scare last night. As I was turning everything off, I knocked my water over on top of my lap top. Lucky for me, the keyboard is tighter than the one I had before and I turned it upside down before the water could dribble anywhere. Spawn grabbed a towel to let it dry all night on (all the while screaming OH NO OH NO OH NO!)


He was making plans to ‘loan’ me his old laptop with Windows 7 but is slower than slow.

Either way, I plugged it up this morning and it booted right up. Yay. I did not need a spasmed laptop, not after the week I’ve had…

So without further ado…

  • 4. What was the last book you added to your tbr?  I’ve been adding books left and right. As some of you know, I was forced to do a major wipe of my laptop weekend before last and I’m reloading all the pertinent stuff. The very last thing I added to my tbr was Wine of violence by Priscilla Royal. Medieval Mystery – an entire series, to go along with my Crispin Guest (Jeri Westerson) Gwen and Gareth (Sarah Woodbury) Aurelis (Jane Finnis) and one more series by Joan Wolf.
  • 5. Which book did you last reread? Dungeon Royale – Daman Knight, oh ye of Masters and Mercenaries fame that looks alot like a certain actor many of us follow obsessively. Someone tried to call me on the carpet for said obsession. I think I smacked them pretty nicely.
  • 6. Which book was the last one you really, really loved?  The Silence of the Stones. Crispin Guest. Usually with a series, I’ll quit about 3 or 4 in. The characters don’t grow or change, and hers do. There are times I find myself yelling at Crispin and cheering Jack. I don’t know why I’m reading the newest one so slowly. Oh yeah. I’m WRITING again…

how was everyone’s weekend? Mine was okay. Well other than the almost destruction of my laptop… weather is trying to cool down. no it’s not. It’s humid, although yeah, it is 10 degrees cooler, so yeah, it’s trying to cool down. I’ve heard rumor that we’re in for a cold winter this year. Of course, here in the tropics, a cold winter means breaking out the sock with the flip flops because it’s dipping to the 60’s.

(Actually, it DID it cold here last winter. It just didn’t last long – 6 weeks)

So don’t be shy. Speak up! Have some Richard!


Yeah, we’re in the same mood…
