My daughter called me last night - she found her cat, Harley, dead. He didn't have any known illness, although I suspect he was starting with diabetes. She had no warning though. She went to work that morning, came home after class that night - he was gone. Poor thing!
I just finished Forging a Legend by Tia Nevitt of the Fantasy Debut fame. WOW! I lapped down 462 pages in under 3 days and ended up skimping on the house cleaning because I just couldn't stop reading. The concept is such a clever idea and Abriel is charming and lovable character - you feel her pain and joy. Some wise agent/publisher will surely soon see what a gem Tia is and snatch up her work. It can't be too soon for me as I wait for the sequel. Forging a Legend is a 3 book set although one can read the first book and be quite happy with its ending, that is, I didn't feel like I was left hanging.
I'm so disgusted. Nuttin But Stringz didn't win - I turned off America's Got Talent after seeing that. The other 2 people could sing, no doubt, but Nuttin But Stringz was new, fresh and amazing. Their playing inspired and touched me. They even wrote their own music. HOW could America have voted them out.
Don't we get enough singing with American Idol?
I SOO hope Nuttin But Stringz gets some other tour deal, maybe better than Vegas, they can tour the US, come to Boston, then I don't have to fly to Vegas to see them.
I'm a software engineer and the rest of the time, I'm a poet, writer, volunteer, blogger, and playing on my iPhone. I currently have nearly 700 poems. I enjoy outdoor activities like inline skating, biking, skiing (especially cross country) and hiking.
I have 4 cats all of them are litter mates - found homeless, feral around 5 weeks old by a volunteer at a cat shelter.
