Mad Monday

Currently Reading: LOVED Ashley Ladd's Recipe For Disaster! Another Recommened Read! Next up: Elfin Blood, by Gracen Miller. I've already read a few chapters and I'm not crazy about Nobel Romance's chapter breaks. I'm finding it slightly distracting. If you're a fan of paranormal romances featuring elves and vampires, give it a try:) I'm going to read a few more chapters when I meet my daily word count goals.

November Reading Schedule:
-Elfin Blood
-Blood Line
-Highland Beast
-Spanish Topaz

If finances are good, here's the rest of the month's buying schedule:
Nov 9:
-Infidelity by Debbie Gould

Nov 16:
-Naughty Nooners by Dakota Rebel, et al

Nov 23:
-Unexpected Mr. Right by Kelley Nyrae

I'm off to a slow start. Yesterday, the SyFy channel hijacked my attention by running the original V all day. Why was I so captivated? We own the DVD. Weeeelllllll, okay. We have HALF of the movie, found in the discount bin about ten years ago. And I was outraged when it stopped 'halfway through'!

"Flip the disc over, mom..." Nah...that wasn't even 'The End'! Where was Robin giving birth? The grand finale?

So yesterday, I noshed on Smarties, $1000 Grand bars, and what leftover Three Musketeers and Snickers were left in the bowl, and vegged out to one of the few sci-fi movies I can stand. And my kids finally got to see what Mom was moaning about every time we get the urge to watch our DVD: It wasn't COMPLETE!

Yeah, it seems hokey now, with the 'special effects', obvious plot errors, and crappy dialogue. But as a teenager, I loved it. As an adult, I can appreciate the basic storyline and jokingly speculated the 'New V' series will be about Diana's daughter, coming back to finish what her mother started?? Will Elizabeth be the one who saves the day again? I think we have plans to DVR the pilot on Tuesday; if and when I watch it still remains to be seen. It interferes with my 90210 and spouse's NCIS.

To-Do List:
-Laundry (and trip to grocery store)
-Proofread K's term paper ("Pleeeeeaaase Mom?????" How can I possibly refuse that, lol?)\
-Devote 2 hours to my NaNo wip
-Pork Steaks for dinner

Okay; time for me to get off line; throw another load in the washer; eat lunch; get cracking on the word count (and the proofreading)! I'll check in again later.

The DH and I got sucked into V for awhile yesterday. Finally I had to pull him away to do grocery shopping.

Good luck with the writing.

You know, I have never seen V. But my boss was talking about it the other day. I think I'm going ot have to check it out.
