I Found It!

Currently Reading: I've made it to chapter 17 in Nicholas and Alexandra! Only 317 pages to go...I definitely should have it finished by the end of next week...

E-Book: When I get off of here, I swear I'm starting Claire Thompson's Golden Boy. It's been sitting there, waiting patiently now, for 2 weeks!


Ever have a song pop into your head, but you can only hear part of the lyrics? And then you go looking for the CD, hoping it is in the place you remember seeing it last?

I was doing laundry yesterday when I got the urge to hear "Mama" by Genesis. I raced upstairs, in my quest to find the CD, which wasn't where I thought I had left it, I FOUND Josh Groban! Have I listened to it? No. My head was screaming for Phil Collins. But now I know where Josh is, and if I get the urge to hear 'The Prayer" or just his wonderful voice, I no longer have to go scrolling through my DVR to find him on the Grammys. Oh happy day!

Had a great day yesterday, and today got a surprise...my first royalty check from AuthorHouse! Apparently, they send them out every quarter, no matter how small the amount may be. Which is good...I like checks with my name on them! I'll take them, no matter how what amount they are for! And yes, this one is quite small, but it prompted hubby to quip, "You can have it all; you don't have to share it with me."

Thanks dear. Last time I checked, none of my royalty checks had your name on it. Okay, I'm getting snarky. Sorry. Blame it on hormones. I'll try to be nicer...

Yay! Amanda and Alex got booted last night! Now Matt and Natalie can go...

Not much is going on today. I decided my muse must be vacationing in Arizona, because Dave Price was in Florida this morning, and it was only in the 20's?? With a high expected of 50...my muse prefers temps in the 60-90 range, so I bet she went to Phoenix. Which, by the way, is where Dave will be tomorrow...who's Dave? The morning weatherman on CBS.

Last clue...What are my 3 favorite reality shows? (Hint: I just mentioned one of them...)

Collect all seven answers and email them to me by Saturday, March 1st at storimom2@aol.com I'll repost the questions tomorrow, in case anyone got a late start.

I think I'll quit stalling and read Claire's e-book. Stay warm! And if you see my muse, please tell her to get her butt back here...I need her!

Sorry sweetie, if I see your muse I am going to buy her a drink and soak up some sun with her. But just one, honest. One fruity drink with an umbrella and then I will kick her butt back to you.

Congrats on the check. I am anxious for my first ever, no matter how small it is.

Off to find some sun and your muse.

Woo hoo! First royalty check!

Make a photo copy of it before you take it to the bank. There's never another "first" royalty check!

Molly Daniels said...

That's a good idea, Anny...I took a picture of my 1st one from Love is Sober.

Congrats on your first royalty check! Each one is exciting. Of course, I like money...

My hubby gets the mail first and so he thinks he should check out the amount even though it doesn't have his name on it. I like the checks I get through PayPal from my other publishers - where only I can see it.
