Rest in Peace, Bradley Clay

The world became a little less funny on Sunday, Oct 3. You were a great guy, Brad and you will be sorely missed. As Brian requested on Facebook, say hello to all of our friends for us.

Job Interview. Yipes!

So I think I've done all I can do to prepare for this interview I have tomorrow. I hope it goes well, although I admit I am nervous about it. It's an insurance company and I don't know if that's the right fit for me. *sigh* But I am determined to keep an open mind and not write this off. I'm hoping to knock this interview out of the park because I desperately want a job. Poohy. Lol.

Fingers and toes are crossed!!! (Wait--does toe-crossing negate the fingers? Hmmm. Maybe I'll just stick with the fingers.)

To my sister's house we go!!

I'm off to Louisiana tomorrow folks! And I'm not taking my laptop with me because apparently technology hates me and that thing has some virus in it (or multiple viruses--ack). So at home it stays. 

Sooo, I will be without much Internet access--but I'll be with my adorable nephew!! So excited!

In short, if any of you MSN chat buddies would like to get a hold of me, just message me on LJ--and if you have my Yahoo! address, you can e-mail me directly. For now, though, kiddies, I best be off. Need to gather last minute items and then I'm leaving ... on a jet plane :P

Ciao dears!

How do some books even get published?

So the other day, I just finished up this incredibly awful book called "Almost Forever" by Linda Howard. I just mean wow. When I picked it up at Borders the last week, I was kind of excited to read it. The summary made it sound really promising, but oh how deceiving those things can be. 

The story is about a man named Max Conroy, who is chosen by his boss to conduct corporate espionage. He works for a very prominent company who is looking to takeover another one because of some technology patent that the CEO possesses. So, to get the information that his company needs, he uses the personal assistant to the CEO, Claire Westbrook, and of course, he ends up falling for her.

These type of stories generally tickle me because they don't require much thought and are relaxing reads. However, this was just so bland and dull that I'm amazed I even finished it to be quite honest. It sometimes felt like I was just reading the same thing over and over again for BOTH characters. We get the first two times that Max and Claire are both closed off individuals. We don't need twenty-thousand repeats of it. 

And Max. Just yuck. 

Normally, I'm all for the romantic male leads, but this dude was just... yeah. He often came across as big bullying brute and I found myself wishing he were real just so I could slap him. And Claire was really just annoying. 

I've read better stories on FictionPress and that's saying something with what's been put out there lately. Oy. 

However, one book that I do recommend is "Something About You" by Julie James. It has been a LONG time since a book had me laughing in the first chapter and she managed to do it. 

The sense of humor in both the male lead and the female lead is very much in sync without being too corny and the chemistry is amazing. I couldn't stop reading and when I found that there was no more story to read, I was kind of sad. I will definitely be reading her other book that's out called "Practice Makes Perfect." Julie James is just awesome.

What I'm Listening To


I just created a new playlist on ProjectPlaylist and this contains all the goodies I've been listening to as of late. I'm a bit bummed because they don't have some of my favorite songs uploaded to the site yet, but oh well. I suppose one site can only hold so many songs. But what the hell? They don't have Beautiful Thieves by AFI! That shit is just wrong. I heart that song. 

Anywho, tada. Here is ze playlist. 

I'm hoping this works. This is only the second time I've done this. We'll see!!!

And oh-ho, happy dance! The Mortal Instruments movie is set for release in 2012 (according to IMDB.com)! Don't know how accurate that is and what-not, but they usually have dates semi-correct. Too bad it's still listed as 'in development'. Bleh. Get a move on with this movie!!! lol. J/K. As long as they do the books justice, I don't care how long they take. In theory.....

A New, Meaningless Entry

 Yeah, so this is just a random LJ entry. 

I've recently been added to The Write Away community, which is under Plagiarism Haven and it's pretty awesome so far! The community seems very friendly and helpful to aspiring writers, which is a great thing! 

Um, let's see, what else?

Oh! I don't know if any of you watch Days of our Lives, but I need a random vent session. I absolutely cannot stand the little skank that is Stephanie Johnson. She can just get shoved off a cliff, please and thank you. I hate manipulators and she is one of the worst on the show. Just bleh. 

/Stephanie Sucks rant. Lol. 


The Mentalist seriously does rock. I just watched an episode from earlier on in the season where Lisbon was suspected of murder and that just kicked some ass. Simon Baker is da bomb. 

Also, does anyone know if One Tree Hill is officially over, or if the last four episodes the Promo is referring to is of the season or for good? I honestly have not been keeping up with OTH. I think it kind of died when Lucas and Peyton left.

Anyway, I think that does it! Until next time...

First Entry

So I have to say that recently, I've become a little bit addicted to FictionPress. Some of the stories over there are truly amazing and basically, this post is about me ranting about FP's carelessness when it comes to plagiarism. It's not cool what's happening over there. And they even took off the copyright stuff? I mean what the hell? That's basically just saying it's open season for the lazy asses who plagiarize in the first place.

Just... grrrr!!!

It just really sucks because all the good writers out there are scared away from FP now. Just boo. So unfair to the people with the creative minds that actually put in the work and effort.
