Anny's Release Day Ditty

Currently Reading: I finished reading this week's books; I discovered last night I haven't read Anny's Kama Sutra Lovers, so I think I'll hop over and buy it today. How in the hell did this one get left off the list? And while I'm there, I might as well pick up Bishop's story...

And no, it is NOT a 'totally tasteless limerick' like the ones in the past.

How do I come up with these things, you may ask? Simple. Sometimes after reading an excerpt or two, a jingle will pop into my head.

Blame Ms Kirch. She started it all.

Only with hers, I went from kiddie songs (tune of 'Hello Mother, Hello Father') to Christmas songs (mainly 'Deck the Halls'!) to the limerick (There once was a woman named Blu...).

In Dakota's case, I started to do a parody of the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams, but it morphed into a poem. And for whatever reason, Barb keeps getting spoofs of modern songs (Hey There Delilah and Shadow of the Day).

Veggie Tales Theme came to mind when I first thought up Anny's ditty last year, and included the rest of my blogmates in that one. I've revamped it just in time for her latest release, Love Never Ending, available TODAY at Ellora's Cave. So sit back, enjoy, and please don't throw any tomatoes at me!

If you want to read several good books,
Anny Cook can make you smile
If you want to spy on the blue kids,
Mystic Valley's just your style...

(Have we got a library for you!)

Cherished Destinies, Dancer's De-e-light
Travelor's Re-efuge, Jade and family
Everything Lovers know (it's the pre-equel)
And the fi-ifth one released today!

Bi-ishop, Sa-am-ara
Different worlds, yet so alike
Will they find happiness
Get her books at Ellora's Cave!

Sometimes inspiration strikes instantly, others gell around in my head for a while before being formed. And in some cases, I end up with really horrible ones, and everyone tells me to 'not quit the day job' or 'keep working on it'.

Snow Update:
Kids are on day 4 of snow days; toddler is upset he doesn't get to go play with his school friends. Hubby worked for two hours defrosting the van yesterday, and before he could drive to the post office, he came in and took a nap. Maybe today we'll get that thing in the mail.

And did you know shoveling snow can be hazardous to your kids? W was hit across the bridge of his nose with a shovel handle, and his friend I was poked in the eye. Fortunately, we got ice packs on both kids in time, so no black eyes! S, watch behind you for the little ones next time!

Story Update:
My Off the Clock story is wandering all over the place; I woke up this morning and decided to rip it apart. My characters are not spending a lot of time off the clock; time to re-think this thing. Like I said, I'm the only one working on it at the moment, so I have plenty of time to make mistakes!

Check out the blogs to the right and if anyone else is going to watch the Super Bowl, tell me who you think will take home the trophy this year. I'm leaning toward Arizona, just because this is their first time, but the Steelers will probably show them who's boss. Who knows? I could be wrong! Maybe next year will be the 'Manning Bowl', with Peyton vs Eli!
