Popped

I have a crappy life. All I do is come here and whine.

My air mattress popped. For those of you who read my Princess and the Pea post, you know how devastating a popped air mattress is for me. I can’t sleep. My hips feel bruised. I am thoroughly out of sorts. The new mattress better come today or I’m in deep shit in the rest department. I can’t write. I’m irritated. I’m grumpy. Bah!

On a happier note, Ce from Cesigned is making my author website for lexvalentine.com. I’m soooo excited. I had Jester look at the first mockup last night, and he pointed out all the same things I wanted changed so I feel good about being on the right track with this.

I submitted a 5K word piece to Wild Rose Press last night too. Thanks to Jen for helping me with the query letter. It’s for their Cougar Club series. HEH. Yeah, I’d say I know a thing or two about the whole older woman/younger man thing. I have no experience whatsoever with men my age or older. Young and hot? That would be what I know. Yes, I know I’m pathetic. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, and by the way, since I didn’t blog yesterday I’ll say it today – HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN! Stop on over at the Redneck Romance Writer and wish Jen Happy Birthday. She’s always so supportive of my writing. She’s just a great friend to have and I appreciate her muchly!

I’ve been busy over at the horse racing sim too. Moderating can be tiring! There’s a couple of threads of arguments going on and I have to keep an eye on them. So I started posting little flirty remarks reminding them not to name call or say bad words. I got accused of being lovey-dovey! ME! My reply had something to do with knowing the difference between lovey-dovey and flirty. And besides, a couple of those guys are hot. I’m allowed a little harmless flirtation, right?

I have not yet received a single photo for the Better Than a Hot Blogger calendar. C’mon, people! Send a photo, or I will just stalk your Flickr accounts and pick one myself! Do you really trust me to choose?

I’m planning a little something special for my blog for Halloween week. Not only is it my birthday on Halloween, but this blog is themed rather appropriately for that holiday. So I’ve got some “stuff” in the works, not the least of which is that there will probably be a guest post on my actual birthday of Halloween. I got in on the winnings over at Whall’s a while back and one of the prize choices was a guest post. So I asked him to do one on my birthday so I don’t have to. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with for Halloween at this batty blog!

My back hurts. Have I said I feel bruised? Not to mention that I really do still have bruises from last week’s fall. Ack. I’m gonna go suck down some pharmaceuticals. You all have a spectacular Friday!

    Oh man, I can relate to a popped air mattress. We’ve bought many over the last few years, just trying to see if one can last through the kids jumping on them, the dogs scurrying over them and just plain bad workmanship.

    I think we found one that’s working for us – it’s an 18″ double-high one that’s toughed it out so far. It was expensive, but so far has been worth it!

    Jason – I love them! But when they popped I would have a wet mess, the bad kind where I end up sleeping on the couch or in the recliner. I prefer the good kind of wet mess, which just means I have to sleep in the wet spot.

    How about a waterbed? Throw-back to the ’70’s. Those can pop too though…

    Cissa – Got the photo! As for sleep, it should be very restful (other than the fact that it’s blazing hot here.) New mattress did arrive this afternoon. Woot!

    Mary – Take the pic of hubbie in the bra. I’ll post him. HEH.

    Marty – I like Whall. I don’t care who he votes for. In the end, it won’t matter who any of us vote for. How much change do you really think is gonna happen? These are all career politicians? All of us can do a better job but we’re too busy making sure that the businesses our country needs keep running. Thanks for the good luck wishes!

    Becky – I’ll prolly be writing, and watching Twitter for interesting stuff from everyone who is going to Adam’s. Maybe Motley and I will go to dinner. Depends on how funds are on that day.

    YAY FOR MY NEW MATTRESS!!! LIKE A GOOD PORN STAR, IT CAME RIGHT ON CUE!

    As I’ve said before, the more I see you write, the more it inspires me to write more. I do make some dents here and there, but I want to be writing more.

    Good luck and hope you get published.

    And that reminds me… whall owes me a blog post. I’ll let him take over my blog for a day with anything he wants to write about… even his unabashed love affair with the VP nominee. I must be crazy.
