It’s The Weekend

Saturday, September 30th, 2006 | Uncategorized | 2 Comments

I don*t necessarily *live* for the weekends…but I sure am glad when they get here. LOL

I plan to get some serious plotting done this weekend so I can start fresh writing on Monday. Remember, today is the last day to enter my September contest. I will be posting the winners tomorrow and announcing a new contest.

I*m over at the Novelty Girls today – so drop by there too.

Have a great Saturday

Check Out Some New Digs

Friday, September 29th, 2006 | Uncategorized | 5 Comments

Well, I joined with another group of ladies and formed the blog – Between The Sheets – drop on over and check us out. Don*t worry, I*m still a Novelty Girl (and by the way, check out the post today on Banned Books Week – there*s a contest).

Did anyone watch Ugly Betty tonight? It was awesome. I can admit, I watch tooooo much TV as it is, but boy that was a good show. I can*t wait to see it next week. There*s just something about an underdog making it in the world of the size 2s and succeeding.

My September contest is coming to a close on Saturday. As a reminder, the prizes are:

1 $5.00 Gift Cert to Cobblestone Press

2 $10 Gift Cert to Bath and Body Works

3 A download of One Week Stand

4 Gift Basket from Bath and Body Works

And of course, there will be another contest starting October 1st as well, but this one will be a little different. So keep on dropping by, I love visitors.

Happy Friday!



There Are Days….

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006 | Uncategorized | 4 Comments

When I love parts of my job….and when I REALLY love parts of my job. Spending Money!!!! The good thing about being a librarian is I get a budget, and a pretty niced sized one at that. I began the day shelving tons of books back, and then sat down at the computer, found my consideration file and started cruising the net for young adult and middle grade books. It was great fun I gotta tell you. I*m not finished yet. What I*m going to try and do is spend half of my budget this fall, and then the other half in the spring. I love love fiction, but I also need to update my non-fiction titles so I think I*ll spend tomorrow looking for some non-fiction titles.

Last get to know you question(s)…What city and state were you born in? AND, If you could live in any city/country in the world, where would it be?

I was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be Sydney, Australia. It seems like such a beautiful city.

Smooches, Lyric


Getting To Know You – Question #6

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006 | Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I had a dentist appointment today. Yes…Ouch! But honestly, I don*t so much mind the dentist. I*ve been going to one ever since was I little when I had braces, so I don*t fear going. But the pain associated with it afterwards I can never get used to as my gums right now are really hurting. I*m waiting for my BC to kick in so I can eat my dinner.

What*s really bugging me about this visit though, is I have a cracked tooth, which means I have to get a crown, which also means $$$. That*s the big Ouch! I do have dental insurance to pay for half of it, but still, spending $ is still spending $ when you didn*t plan for it. Thank goodness we have savings.

They want me to come in tomorrow to get it done. But my husband already had a scheduled appointment at 3 – they want me to come in at 2 – which leaves us no one to watch the kiddos while we*re both strapped in the chairs. LOL So, I might have to see if they can squeeze me in on Wednesday instead. All of this means I*m in for more pain one more day this week. Oh well…I think I*d rather have a little pain than lose a tooth.

If you could be trapped in a TV show for one month, which show would you choose?

Hmmm…I absolutely love Desperate Housewives, but Shemar Moore IS on Criminal Minds. So either one of the two would do for me.

Have a great day.



Stormy Weekend

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006 | Uncategorized | 9 Comments

I*m in the middle of thunderstorm and tornado warning and watches right now. It*s all gloomy outside as a I hear a crackle of thunder and see a spark of lightening outside my window. And of course, this is going to put a damper on my computer time today. I hate to be on the computer when it*s so tempermental outside. But, I had to jump on and post my getting to know you question of the day and to also tell you that I*m over at the Novelty Girls today, so stop by there too as you cruise through the blogosphere.

I hope you*re having a less stormy day than me.

If you could be any age for one week, what age would it be? Why?

I*d go back to when I was 25 so I could slap some sense into myself and tell me NOT to marry my first husband. It only lasted 7 months. Ouch!

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been best friends with my friend Kim for over 17 years. Well, today her oldest turned 16 years old, and all I could think about was what my life was like when I was that age. What were my dreams? What did I want to be when I grew up? I also realized that he has his whole life in front of him. He’s a very smart (straight A) student and wants to attend Duke University and major in Engineering. And in my heart of hearts, I know he’ll succeed.

His birthday also made me think about where I want to be in my life in the next 5, 10, 15 years. Will I have accomplished my dream of becoming a published (New York) author? Will the desire still be there? After all, one third of my life has already passed. What about you, where do you want to be in 10 years?

Today’s getting to know you question. If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be?

My answer – Lusty! LOL

Getting To Know You – Question #3

Thursday, September 21st, 2006 | Uncategorized | 6 Comments

Don’t forget to enter the Novelty Girls Contest. The last day is today!!! We’re giving away a lot of great prizes.

Today’s “get to know you question is…” Would you rather be a butterfly or a cockroach? Why?

I’d rather be a butterfly because they start out as catipillers and evolve into something else, beautiful and free.

Smooches, Lyric


Getting To Know You – Question #2

Thursday, September 21st, 2006 | Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Did you have an imaginary friend as a child? If so, tell me more?

My answer – I didn*t have an imaginary friend, but my dolls did talk to each other and they had names. LOL


Getting To Know You

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006 | Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Yesterday was a special day for me. Nine years ago, my husband and I met on a blind date. So, happy first meet anniversary to me. :-) And guess what, I still have the receipt from that date. On our first anniverary, my hubby had it laminated and gave it to me as one of my gifts and I still have it. Isn*t that all sweet and mushy? LOL

In honor of yesterday*s post, I decided that I*d post some more get to know you questions over the next week or so. And no, I was not creative enough to come up with these questions….I stole them from The Romance Divas, a forum I*m on. So, get ready to share.

If your life were made into a television show, would it be a soap opera, a drama, or a sitcom? What would it be called?

My answer – a sitcom called…My Husband and Kids…And My Job…and My Students and a little Writing. LOL

Your turn!

Loved...loved...loved. Now...since she's finally dealt with the demons of both her parents...if she'd only get pregnant!!! I would really love to see how she combines being the bad-a@@-cop she is with motherhood.

This was my first Patricia Cornwell novel and I really enjoyed. Her relationship with her niece was great. Great story and plot. Can't wait to read the next one.

So awesome to be in Percy's head again! Once again Rick Riordan took me away to the awesome world of Roman/Greek mythology via his demigods. Instead of Camp this book we visit the counterpart Roman camp, Camp Jupiter. In t...
