It’s a mad rush week for me. Lots to do at the office if I want to take off Christmas Eve. I need to do four days work in about two and a half days. Gonna be pushing myself hard and getting really tired. But come Christmas Eve morning, when I get up at my usual time after all, but get to sit at my desk in my pajamas, drinking coffee and licking whipped cream… it will be worth it. I might even have to do a little work at home that morning to finish up, but it will still be worth it. Ahhh. Nothing like working in your jammies. 🙂
I’m off to the post office today at lunch so some of you will be getting a manila envelope in your mailbox from me. Probably not in time for Christmas but Vista Print and Createspace conspired against me this year and stuff didn’t come very quickly.
However, for those of you who like Christmas stories, head on over to Pink Petal Books where you will find two free Christmas stories from me and two $1.89 Christmas stories. Warning! Christmas Catch is M/M. The free Antaeus Christmas story will be my Christmas Eve gift to you all. I’m mad rushing to finish that story right now.
Now I must rush off to work, leaving you with the inevitable but beautiful Marcus on this last Monday before Christmas. I shoulda Photoshopped him a Santa hat. This photo gets a lot bigger so make sure you click him. 🙂
Wishing you a happy Monday and in case I don’t get back here tomorrow and Christmas Eve like I’m planning… have a wonderful Christmas! MUAH!
It’s a Tuesday Tune for the holidays. I love Soundgarden so this has been one of my fave Christmas songs ever since I first heard it.
Last night was a special Jester Show featuring Dave2 of Blogography. They talked about a lot of interesting stuff from iPhone apps and politics to touching up supermodels and cruise ships. Iron-Fist (Vahid) called in as did Snackiepoo (Hilly) and me. My very short convo with them at the end of the show was about Throbbing Vampire Cock, my favorite Davetoon of all time.
If you didn’t get a chance to listen in to the show live, check out the podcast above. Fans of Ride the Lightning will get to hear the real Vahid and Dave speak! Yes, they both sound incredibly sexy as does Jester who has the best laugh in the world. Jester Shows are never to be missed. They are so much fun!
Have a great Tuesday!
Today, I get to play the Rain Game. Yes, the rain has finally hit SoCal. And I have a shredded wiper blade and bent wiper arm. So Rott gets to take me to work in the SUV, put the Intrepid in the garage, and change the blades. Or he can just take me to work every day that it rains. Makes no difference to me. The SUV is a lot nicer than the Dodge that’s for sure. Strangely enough, Rott does like the Dodge. He swears it saved his life once cause it has so much power. Men are sometimes easily pleased. 🙂
I’ve had several things I’ve been working on this past weekend. I completed a website for author Regina Carlysle, bought some sim game credits so I can breed over my multiple stakes winner Smooth Belief, did some promo for Ride the Lightning, bought promo items, and just about finished Christmas in Hell. I wuz bizzy!
I can’t wait to get my hands on the promo stuff. If you want a holiday card from me (well, Lex really) email me with your snail mail addy. Either lex at lexvalentine dot com or winter at winterheart dot com. I’ll be sending out Ride the Lightning magnets and Mating/Runaways book cards too. I never knew being an author meant getting to know the USPS personnel so well.
Tonight is a new Jester Show with Dave2. I can hardly wait! I love Jester and his show is always hugely entertaining. It’s even more entertaining when Dave is on. They are an unbeatable combo. If you get the chance, you should definitely tune in. Just be careful about eating and drinking while listening. *wink*
Before I head out to play the Rain Game (aka musical cars in the rain) I need to post my regular Monday Marcus. I have to admit to having looked a lot of naked cowboys lately. Marcus is not much of a cowboy sadly. But I needed inspiration while writing Christmas in Hell and naked cowboy cock seemed to do the trick. So to make up for my lack of loyalty I’m posting a Marcus photo I’ve posted before, but always looks good!
I think this is about as close as I’m gonna get to a Marcus cowboy look. LOL Still it’s a nice looking horse and a gorgeous Marcus. What more do I need on a Monday?
All of you have a great day and take it easy out there in the winter weather!
I post this every year, but it still makes me tear up. At work, our company motto is that we serve from our hearts. For those in the military, I believe they serve with much more than that. As the daughter of a veteran from a war zone, my heartfelt thanks to all who serve my country.
In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Happy Veteran’s Day. I’m off to work. Lots of flags flying and honoring of the dead. It will be a gorgeous day.
