Good morning, party people! Sharing another review of mine from Pure Textuality!
In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey Taylor sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off.
Whether it’s people’s rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and—most of all—the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor’s humor and insight cover civil society’s seeming decline—sparing no one along the way, least of all himself.
Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor’s inimitable voice, You’re Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves.

As you are probably aware by now (mainly because I haven’t shut up about it), I am working on a super-secret project book. This is a story I never planned on and it’s totally not in my wheelhouse, but, it’s happening and it’s happening FAST.
Here’s the problem:
I can’t pick a title to save my ass.
This is a problem for me. Not a serious one, because, really, it’s not going to change the story, but…

After feeling like deep fried dog turd for most of the day, I am finally starting to join the land of the living again. I had a pretty bad headache until about half an hour ago, but I am feeling MUCH better! I had grand plans of writing today between my day job calls, but, that did not happen. Luckily, this past weekend, while indulging in my kidless Heroes marathon, I was able to get a metric shit ton of writing done on the untitled Nick & Lexi project, and I think you guys are going to dig it.
Now that my head no longer feels like I have an ice pick through my eye socket, I am going to crank out some more on the word count. I am so excited about this story! Cant even begin to tell you! It’s moving so much faster than anything else I’ve written. The characters are just fantastic, and they loooooove to talk.
That’s all for today. I am about to cuddle with my notepad and do some more writing before wrapping up the day job. But, before I go, I wanted to share something my friend Jo D sent to me this morning. She’s this super-super sweet chick I work with here at my day job, and this chick just totally gets me. 🙂 I’ve shared the image below. Enjoy!
I just stumbled across this video on Twitter by @Redrosepiano and I just had to share. I love the song used!!
Good morning and Happy Monday, you sexy bitches! This weekend, in addition to doing a CRAZY amount of writing (more about that later), I also finished what ended up being a week-long binge watch of the TV series Heroes. It was my first time watching the series despite having owned the first two seasons on DVD for over two years. I got them at a charity media sale, but hadn’t gotten around to watching them. Last weekend, I decided to give it a go, and by episode three or four, I was hooked. I’ve been watching episodes every night, and this weekend, neither of my kids were home, so I did nothing but write and watch Heroes for two days straight.
It. Was. Awesome.
Well, I am done. As soon as I finished, I opened my laptop and started typing so it would all still be very fresh. There were some characters I loved. There were some I hated. There were even some characters I hated, and then loved. We’re going to talk about all of them, plus my thoughts on the show as a whole. 🙂

I don’t normally get into politics or religion on here. Not because I don’t stand by my opinions. I do. I’m quite vocal about them, actually. Enough so that I am sure some people want to get all stabby with me when I drag out the soap box. *insert shoulder shrug here*
I don’t normally get into religion or politics because I don’t make a habit of openly inviting small-minded hatred and bigotry on my blog. This is my happy place, dammit. However, today, I’m issuing the invitation with open arms and a twinkle in my eye. Nothing anyone can say right now is going to take away from the moment of history we all witnessed today…..
