Crazy Computers

Well, Sunday was a pain in the ass. My computers been giving me major problems since it went screwy about 6 months ago. All I can say is...

THANK GOD for my HONEY!!

He spent all day Sunday, and I mean all day- until midnight, going over everything, wiping out my harddrives and reinstalling, and giving me a stabiler system.
I had errors coming up left and right on both harddrives, and one of my memory cards just poofed.
Yep, C's luck with technology. Luckily I placed my N & N Blog before all this happened, so I haven't even been over there yet.

I ordered 2 memory things, equalling 2GB, and sweeties going to replace them when they arrive.

He's so techy good, I love it!!

So once again, I'm playing catch up, and putting my favorites back to where they belong *grins*

Shopping...Are You Done Yet??

Okay, so this past week has been all about Christmas and the shopping of for it.Wednesday night was a girls night. YEAH!!

We go out once a year, Christmas shop and then go to eat. We found some great deals, things we never thought we would have found off line, and I made a business network connection, which guarantees me an extra $200. How Good can it get!!

So I have to say going to a restaurant at 9 PM is a great way to wind down. The place was practically empty, and sitting out on the patio under a palm covered table, with a view of the Bay and sailboats put up for the night, was AWESOME!!

Not to mention the soft sound of music coming from the semi crowed bar, also out under the moonlight, not to far away. And the Tiki torches lighting the pathway.

Yeah, it was a great way to end the night.

And yep, I live in Florida. I know, I know, but hey, it’s been hitting the freezing mark here the past few nights.

Last night registered around 50 at 9:00. Coming from a Christmas Party, my toes got a bit chilly. I’ve taken the Floridian roll of no nylons, and wore open toed shoes.
Felt a bit funny at first, but hey, the pedicure looked great!!

I only have a few stocking stuffers left to get, then I AM DONE!! YEAH ME!!

What about you? Done yet, started yet? A night out with the girls or guys?

On another note, I just want to remind everyone of the giveaway I'm having for The Midnight Seductions 1 Year Anniversary. I'm giving away a copy of both my best sellers, A Slave's Way Out and The Devil Himself. I'm also tossing in a copy of my erotic BDSM short story A Night to Remember.

Poofed up the Profile

Okay, so MySpace didn't like my riskay picture I had on my profile after 3 years, so they decided to snap their little "image has been deleted" or what ever where it was up.

So C, has decided to change her profile layout, and I now have a Christmas Elf up. She's cute, no booty, booby or skin showing *sigh*

But have no fear, I do suppose from now on, you'll be seeing the profile changing with the mood, or season. HAHA on you MySpace! *Grinning from ear to ear*

Go check it out and let me know what you think.

Playing Catch Up

I just hate not feeling well. November has been a tough month around here with this cold that just will NOT go away, and the loss of our little loved one.
And we all know how well things get done around the house when the major cleaner is down and out.
LOL
Not one heck of a lot!!
So I'm playing catch up. Not only on my cleaning, cooking, laundry, everyday house hold chores, but on my editing, writing, and the day jobs paperwork. BLAH!

CALGON - TAKE ME AWAY, hahahahaha

I hope everyone had a great turkey day. We celebrated two days of eating, visiting and being happy. One with the honey's family, and one with my own.

I didn't go out shopping yesterday. Nope not that crazy!! Instead I surfed the internet and bought a few things in my pj's, Hehehehe, see how I am.

Have a great day everyone!!

The Rock

There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy. 25 in rural Iowa .

For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times.
A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed. It's quite an impressive sight.

Be sure to scrolldown and check out the multiple photos (all angles) of the rock.

At the very end, you'll meet the young artist. I thought the flag was draped over the rock, but it's not. It's actually painted on the rock too.



Here's the artist -- Ray 'Bubba' Sorensen. AWESOME Work, RAY...Thank you! 'God Bless America ' and 'OUR SOLDIERS AND VETS'

Our Loss

I weep this day for we have lost a member of our family.

Last night at 7:23, our beloved Pug Beaudunk passed away.

I am thankful that we were there with him as he took his last breaths from this world to the next. He knew he wasn't alone in his last moments and was surrounded by those who loved him.

He would have been 15 years old January 22, 2009. So a full and happy life he has led.

He was my first child, my son's older brother, and our little one eyed leg lifter. For you see, he lost one eye during his youthful escapades, and well, lifted his leg and pee'd on my dad's leg.

When I first held him, he fit onto the palm of my hand. When I last held him, his little head lay onto the palm of my hand.

He was and always will be my little baby.

Today he will be cremated and continue to reside with us. Later, he will meet us as we come to him.
We Love you Beau

NINE WORDS WOMEN USE


Okay, my BFF recently sent this to me, and I laughed my butt off, so I thought I'd share!


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.


(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.


(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.


(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!


(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)


(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.


(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').


(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!


(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.


* Inform the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.


* Tell all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it's true!!!

When you want to try something new...

When do you ask your partner to try something new, something you’ve been wanting to do for a while, or something you liked doing with an old flame, and want to do it with your new honey, but you’re not quit sure how to bring it up.

I know all those professionals say bring it up casually.

I think the more comfortable you are with your partner, the more open you are, the easier it is.


I love it when my honey tells me, “Oh I like that babe.” *wiggling eyebrows*, yeah *giggles* and I liked doing it, hehe.

Communication is the big rule in my book, and after I learned how to “voice” what I like, I became a whole new me. So now in my mid-thirties, I’m not afraid to ask for something, or ‘honey can we try this’, 99% of the time I’m offered up a yes, or that sounds interesting.

I mean we were talking about fantasies this morning. Yes, Okay, that’s why this chick is a bit late putting up the blog, LOL. See I was doing research, and the honey was helping.

Any who… fantasies…having the feeling of more than one in the bedroom is doable, and you don’t have to have an extra body there, there are so many toys out there now, that can ‘simulate’ shall we say, the extra piece(s) wanted, that some fantasies can be achieved with just the two of you.

Okay, but if you’re in a long time relationship or marriage, are you shy about asking your mate to try something new?

Would or have you brought up fantasies while laying there in bed or driving in the car?

All people are different (thank the creator) but is it hard for you, to bring up something new to your mate?

Halloween Last Night

Well the tricking and treating is over with. No real tricks were played, but a lot of treating LOL.

Although, when I was a kid. If you had your lights on, or you were outside, you had candy to give.

I couldn't believe the amount of people who left their lights on, and or where sitting in their drive way with "caution tape" strung across it so no one could enter.
In my days, that was call for toilet papering or a good soaping.

Then this one house, actually says to the kids, if you give me a Reese's cup, I'll give you candy. HUH??? What's up with that?? Lady give me treat or expect a trick!!

Of course my boy looks at her and says "*snort* I don't give my Reese's up to anyone including my mom" and walks away. YAY MY BOY!!!!
Hey wait a minute...I like those Reese's too, LMAO

Hope everyone had a fun and safe night!!

Today's post at N&N

So this is the latest I've ever posted my blog. Quiet a few things have been going on around here lately, and let's just say when the opportunity arose to take the hell off for the night last night, well I took it.


Stress is such a nasty little word. But you know when, as my grandfather would have said, 'you're knee deep in the sh*t,' because your body let's you know.


At this moment I'm on a no stress order from my doctor until I can get into see her on Tuesday. My blood pressure was 184/132. Which they tell me, is a prime number to indicate a heart attack...Oh, YAY me *snort* So off to the ER I went.

Not my favorite place to be. Let me tell you. Even though they are awesome at this ER, and I wouldn't want to go any where else.

So a Halloween party I did go to last night, and what fun it was!! Although we scooted out early, it was nice to spend time alone with my man.

Well, that's it, I'm tired, and I'm going to lay down. Hope everyone has an awesome day out there today. It's beautiful in my part of FL today. We drove with the top back and the windows down. Love that fresh air and sunshine!!

Wow - What else...

Well, the tooth below did not get pulled. Nope, C's blood pressure was so high that they wouldn't even touch it, and made me go to the ER. Yeah, so that's what happened. Like sitting in the dentist chair wouldn't make anyone's BP soar, right. *snort*

So now I have to wait until I go see my Dr. before I can go back to the dentist.

Yeah, sitting here with a bad tooth, that makes my day a whole lot better. NOT. At least they gave me some antibiotics and pain killers. So at bed time, I'll be loopy, hehe.


I have to remind everyone that there's only one more day left to enter my HUGE Giveaway!!

Go to my web site for more info...http://www.freewebs.com/casalo/fallgiveawayinfo.htm


Hope today finds everyone in good health and good harmony!!

Tooth Ache

Yeah, what the title says...I've been dying here for the last few days with a major tooth ace. Yesss, I knew it needed to come out like three years ago, but it's at that point where *pulling hair out* I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!

So after work, and other stuff, it's off to the dentist. Thank God for the nitrous oxide (laughing gas). I love that stuff!! I do believe that as I've gotten older, I've gotten more -- cowardly, shall we say about going to the dentist. Not really sure why, it just happened that way.

Hope everyone has a better day than me!!




I found these and thought I'd toss them up. LOL. I do write erotica you know. *wink*

Working hard for my money


I was thinking that the blog I'm writing has nothing to do with 'writing', but then I thought, yes it does. It was my hard-earned money, and that money came from me writing.


So this is what happened. We all know the economy sucks big right now. It's hard for everyone in one way or another.

Well, my son and I were in the grocery store picking some goodies up for a home school adventure day. That's what we call going on a field trip, because it's so much more…it's really an Adventure!!

Anywho, as we're standing in line I handed the boy three bucks. Well boys being boys, he dropped it when some magazine model wearing a bikini caught his interest, LOL. He's 12.
Well I saw him bend down to gather his lost currency, not realizing that he hadn't gotten all of it. (But the girl behind him sure as hell did)

So on our way out, I looked at him and asked where the change was. "It was only $2 mom," I said yeah so where's the other dollar? He looked at me like I had three heads, and told me I'd only given him $2. So pulled him back into the store I did, and right to the register. I go in there ALL the time, so a lot of the clerks know me. And when she smiled at me I asked if she'd seen the dollar my son dropped, because he had $3.

That's when, people…this 19 -22 year old ( old enough to know better) that was behind us says, 'Oh this." As she's pulling it out of her pocket.
I said yes, thank you, as I'm thinking, "you b*tch, you knew he dropped it," hopefully my "look" was the same one her mother gave her when she got in trouble.

But obviously it didn't work, because the little *$&?" !~&*^%, didn't have enough manners, morals or just plain honesty to give it back to its owner.

What in the hell is wrong with people today? You see someone drop something and pick it up quickly shoving it in your pocket????

The day my son did that would be the day I whipped his a$$ red all the way home!! I don't give a damn how old he is! That's stealing, and it's something this mom WILL NOT put up with, even when I'm 80!! You know what – He knows it, (Not that the above (whipping of the red butt) has ever happened, because it hasn't)

So I'm happy to say, at least I know I've done right by raising my son to be honest!

Obviously her mother should have followed that theory.

On a side note…the clerk at the register…yeah she saw the whole thing, so I'm pretty sure she'll remember that girl's face the next time she sees her in the store.

Karma sweetheart, Karma!!

Hope you folks have a great day!! It's gorgous in my part of FL right now!!

Japanese Anime


Thursday night, I hiked all the way to Gainsville again, to see the second movie of the live action Japanese Anime - Death Note.

That's right, with only two showings I purchases my tickets online and off we went.


My son and I are big Japanese Anime fans. The first part in May was awesome!! Everyone stood up and cheered when L made his onscreen appearance.

The second part was awesome too. I realize that the director had to change things a bit near the end, or else there would have been a Death Note 3 (not that we would have minded).

Who cared if at both I was the oldest one there, my son the youngest, and my honey the tallest (he's 6'2), LOL. It was a ball!!

Again, again, let's do it again!! And we probally will with all the new live actions being made.

We've heard rumors of Cowboy Bebop, staring Johnny Depp, and Ghost in the Shell, and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head.
I've also blogged over at Nice & Naughty Authors today about "Working hard for my Money"
Stop by and check it out. It's about my son losing a dollar in the store, and well...go look, LOL.
