Anyway– sorry–another rushed post. I’ve been on Torquere’s LJ all day. Once again, I’m feeling a little bit bad for the last minute rush. Like I said, I’ve been a couple of places this week–I’ll put links down at the end of this post!
That being said, Chicken went to the prom tonight, she looked stunning–there will be pictures of her (and possibly her friend, who also looked very lovely) tomorrow:-)
We had two conversations of note before she left. The first one was after she’d been SUBLIMELY bitchy as I’d been helping her get ready. I know why she was being a total shit–she was uncomfortable and irritated, because she’s so used to being confident and cool, and putting on girl clothes had totally thrown her off her game. Anyway, I was telling her about putting her shoulders back because it made her look thin and stunning, and it showed off the twins. It made her laugh, and she said, “I”m sorry, mom. I’m sorry I’ve been such a…”
“What’s so funny?”
“Nothing. I was just finishing that sentence in my head.”
That cracked her up. As did this, while we were at the Mongolian BBQ:
Chicken: “I gotta go to the bathroom, mom, and fix my face.”
Her: “Now see, a friend would have said, “there’s no fixing that!”‘
Me: “Or maybe, ‘There’s nothing to fix!'”
Her: “What kind of friend would say that?”
Me: “A BOYfriend.”
Her: “Well played. Except I wouldn’t have that kind of boyfriend. Now move. I need to fix my face.”
So that’s what I’ve been doing this evening! LIke I said–pictures tomorrow. Anyway– here are the promised links. I know, I know– the contests are over. However, I’m a couple of posts away from 1000 posts, and was going to have another story giveaway (I still owe someone a copy of Marcus & Phillip–I was going to print it out when the final draft has been edited so it’s perfect and send the completed e-book!) so folks who follow me on this blog will be taken care of:-) (Needletart– tell younger son that if I sell enough e-books of Jack and Teague, they’ll publish it in paperback. And then I can send you a copy!!!)
And this is me.. signing off and getting to work. A Solid Core of Alpha is closing in on done, and I’m SOOOO anxious to finish! I’ve been given some REALLY fun cover art, and I’ve got some comedies in my writing queue, and one REALLY happy ending for Talker–and a couple of days on Quickening–and, basically? I’m ready to see Anderson and C.J. happy. Really really happy. If anyone deserves it? They do.
