A Gift For All Saints Day [01 Nov 2008|05:56pm]

Greetings Everyone,

Yes, I know it's been a while, and no, I'm not really going to offer any explanations. But, since today is All Saints Day, I thought I'd leave you all a gift...

Yoinked... [04 Jul 2008|11:00pm]

Yoinked from Sw0rdy and GrumpyDemon...

 The Big Read thinks that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well let's see.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise those you intend to read
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

Treasure Released [15 May 2008|01:33pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

So...The moment has finally arrived. Treasure is out and available for order on Amazon.  *SQUEEEEEEEEEE*


So what are you waiting for? I can guarantee you will not read a better book this year. So go, go out and buy and lose yourself in the wonder that is the talent of W.A. Hoffman. (Except for one of you - Keep an eye out on your mail Ms-Soon-To-Be-Birthday-Girl.)

As for me, my copy arrived today. Oh, it's going to be a FABULOUS week-end. 

Excuse me now while I pass out from happiness. 

Hugging Her Book and Purring With Love,

Just 12 Days To Go... [03 May 2008|09:51pm]
[ mood | excited ]

So, for anyone who has not visited this blog in the past few months and heard my endless praised and chorusing, I've become quite obsessed by the Raised By Wolves series by W.A. Hoffman. Later this month, May 15th to be exact, Treasure, the third book in the series comes out.  

This series is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, and for anyone who hasn't been convinced yet, I thought I'd give you just a small sample of Hoffman's writing so you can see for yourselves what all the fuss is about. Plus, I haven't done one of these in a while anyway. So, without further ado...

The Colour Of My Skin [23 Mar 2008|08:49pm]
[ mood | peaceful ]


So as anyone who’s been reading my LJ lately knows, I’ve been in the process of getting a tattoo. A few weeks back, I posted an entry on the first stage, including pictures. I was madly in love with the ink in my skin.


Well, yesterday, I went back to get my wings completed. And if you click on the link, you’ll see…

Because The Grumpette Just Keeps Causing Trouble [29 Feb 2008|02:58pm]
[ mood | amused ]

So a while back, my wonderful and oh-so-lovely Grumpy Demon started the traditional of sending me a Daily Hunk page-a-day calendar every year for Christmas. Me, being me, I brought that baby to work, where I proudly display it on my desk. It has become a centerpiece for conversation, controversy and endless amounts of ribald humor.  As much as I love the hunks, it seems my office, and especially  my male office workers, seem to love them even more. (I didn't ask and they aren't telling.) 

Case in point: This past Tuesday I took a day off to take care of a few personal things, only to come in on Wednesday....

Come Fly With Me… [17 Feb 2008|07:37pm]

So as anyone who has been reading this LJ knows, yesterday I went to get my second tattoo. How was it? Well, it was an intense, sometimes painful, but ultimately uplifting experience. But if you click on the cut below, you will see…

Ink and Kisses [16 Feb 2008|12:05pm]
[ mood | excited ]

So today's the big day. It's finally here.

It starts off with a big brunch in the city with my friend, a little shopping, another stop for some pastry and cappucino, and then six hours under the needle with a tattoo artist as he turns my skin into a living canvas. I'm very excited, a little scared and ready to go. 

If all goes well, I'll have some pictures up tomorrow.

Wish me luck.

A Raised By Wolves Update!! [13 Feb 2008|11:02pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

From the update to W.A. Hoffman's blog posted today (As some of you may have noticed, I'm just a teeny tiny bit obsessed with this series of books she's written about these two amazing men):

"I finished the primary draft of Treasure: Raised By Wolves, Volume Three a few weeks ago and immediately dove into the revision work. Now even that’s done and I’m awaiting feedback from a few people before we proceed to the line edit and then the copy edit. It’s on track time wise for a late April/early May release that will make it available a year after Volume Two and two years after Volume One. I’m pretty happy with it – if I wasn’t, there might be a delay in the release because I’m not going to just kick something out if it’s not they way I like it. But truly, the third volume required far less revision than its predecessors. It’s partly due to my growing experience as a writer – it being my fifth novel – and to my greater surety in feeling my way through the permutations and explorations of Will and Gaston’s story."

Blog here:  http://thealienperspective.blogspot.com/2008/02/peaceful-day-in-doldrums.html

So WOO HOO  HOO!!! It looks like Treasure is on time for an April/May release!! And that's what - About 8 or so weeks away, give or take a week or two? Oh joy, oh happiness!! It looks like Spring will be spent with the pirates this year! (I wonder if I can work out a way to get this book and week-end on a beach in Jamaica while reading it? Hmmm....) 

This is such great news you actually get TWO posts from me today - You lucky bastards. *wink*

Can I just say again - WOO HOO HOO!!!!

Later Days,

Friends Don't Let Friends Blog When They're Sleep Deprived [13 Feb 2008|10:47pm]
[ mood | amused ]

An actual conversation with my friend K, who was at my house using my computer to visit her blog pages on My Space and Face Book...

"K: "You know, you really need to get on My Face."

Ten second pause.

Me: "...Will you at least take me out to dinner first?"

Still love ya K, although I can't wait to tell any children you have about this conversation.

The Truth About Women, Cats and Men [02 Feb 2008|12:38am]
[ mood | amused ]

"Cats are independent, they don't listen, they don't come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, and when they're home they like to be left alone and sleep. In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat." - Jay Leno

But unlike a man, you can get your cats FIXED.

I Think I Have A Problem... [30 Jan 2008|09:23pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

OK, so as some of you may have heard whispers of...I kinda have this thing about these two pirates I read about in this book...

All right, screw that, I have a FLAT OUT obsession with Will and Gaston from W.A. Hoffman's FABULOUS Raised by Wolves series. So much so that I have started to collect pirate memorabilia. As anyone who knows anything at all about Scorpios also knows how obsessive we can get, what started out as a serious passion has now turned into something that even I have no idea where it will end. But suffice to say, in just a few months, I have managed to amass quite the amount of goods.

New Year's Resolutions - Blue Style [02 Jan 2008|09:56pm]
[ mood | devious ]

Hello there my Pretties,

So we all know that now that one season is over, t'is the season for the New Year's Resolution. And every year, you hear everyone making their pronouncements for the new year. It usually goes something along the lines of "lose 20 pounds," "get involved with volunteer work," "learn to play a musical instrument." To which I say...


No way, no how, how friggen plebian. So here, without further ado, as the devil on my left shoulder has always been a hell of a lot stronger than the angel on my right...

A Major Shout Out to My Lilyput [14 Dec 2007|11:32pm]
[ mood | grateful ]

OK, so I've had this friend for YEARS. We met online back in the early days of dial up internet service on 14000 bps modems. Through thick and thin he's always stood by me, and he is one of the most sincere and kind people I've had the fortune to know. 

Our lives have changed quite a bit since we first met - I've moved several times, changed jobs, and he's gotten married and gone through a bunch of other changes. And we don't communicate as often as I'd like. But, you know, your lives change. 

I got the chance to speak to him tonight, after not speaking to him for way too long, when he called just to say hi. We chatted for a while and had a few good laughs (if there's anyone out there who can make me laugh, it's him), catching up on what was going on in our lives. Then I happen to mention in passing that I have been ahving problems with my iPod and he proceeds to spend the next SEVERAL hours trying to help me fix it. He didn't ask for anything in return, and was glad to do it. But this is the kind of guy he is. And he deserves MAJOR props. 

His wife and him don't have plans to have any children in the future, which is a DAMNED SHAME, just because the world sure as hell could use a lot more Lilyputs (don't ask, it's a nickname from WAAAAAY back) and a lot LESS of the jerks that seem the most likely to reproduce. 

Dude - this one's for you. And I just want you to know that should you ever need anything from me, I've still got your back.
