Tomorrow is the romance bookclub and we're doing something special for Valentines day. We're taking some of our favorite romantic books and giving them away.
I've selected four off my shelf that each have something to recommend them, but I have to pick one.
Please help me select the book I'll bring tomorrow night.
( Island FlameCollapse )
I was going to do the excepts too, but it's too much work. The prose isn't as purple as the back cover would lead you to believe. It was a fun read.
( More than a MistressCollapse )
A regency period novel with a rake in need of reformation. It's got all the elements of classic romance. A natural choice, and the cover is even red like Valentines day.
( The Outlaw HeartCollapse )
This one makes the list because it's a Timeswept romance and I know some people have a taste for that sort of thing.
( SheikCollapse ) This one makes the list for a couple of reasons. One, because I liked it, even though I thought it was a bit cliché (which never happens in romance novels), and also because it's by the same author who brought the book series I'm bringing to the romance club to talk about, although it's not in the same series, area, or location.
So there you have it. Let the voting begin.
Which book should I bring for the romantic grab bag?
Island Flame by Linda Windsor
More than a Mistress by Mary Balogh
The Outlaw Heart by Vivian Knight-Jenkins
Sheik by Connie Mason
Honestly, did you think for a moment that More than a Mistress was written by Mary Balrog?
I'm so glad you said it first. I thought it was just me!
No, you psychotic madwoman. Anyone can see it says Bal, ahem, Balogh.
Not only did I read Balrog, in that instance, I relived the Balrog attack on the Fellowship. *sobs* Lost! Lost in the Mines!
On the Patriots (remember, these answers are visable, and there might be children reading)
Better than I expected.
TO really did make a difference. Not enough of one, but still...
Wow, another amazing Brian performance.
Noone really likes Chunky soup.
Biggest heartbreak ever. Now they are like the Red Sox. They have experienced actual pain.
On the Eagles (same language restrictions as before)
Wow! BEST YEAR EVAR!
Even the game was more interesting than the commercials this year.
What? No Bud Bowl?
What's the with 80s retro?
Favorite commercials? Thoughts on commercials?
Finally. Halftime show?
Thank goodness for no wardrobe malfunctions. No one wants to see that.
Best. half time show. EVAR!
Sir Paul. It doesn't get any better than this.
I'm still in shock from "P Diddy, you're so fine." I can't even watch the halftime show until the snow melts on that nuclear winter.
Okay. Cool monitors.
Thoughts on Sir Paul McCartney or halftime shows in general.
One chance. One Love. Your chance to let me know.
|04:10 pm - Need place. Place to gather, to fight, to organize...to help save galaxy on the side of light.|
So this weekend was all about organization.
Not the Pats, although they have a great organization, but it's not the same.
I set up the aforementioned cubes in the closet and started stacking shirts.
Hoppie: Hey! I forgot I had these shirts!
I have one side of 1.5 levels filled with white shirts, and most of the other side of one layer filled with dark shirts. Then I gave up and went back to reading.
Set up the bookcase in the kitchen last night too. Wow, that was easy.
It took longer to bring it up the stairs (or uncrate it. Or sweep out the space it went into) than to set it up. Setting it after removing it from the box look less than 30 seconds. I like it. I may be switching to these for bookcases. They're expensive, but worth it. Light and sturdy. I just have to sell hoppie on the idea.
Anyway, that now has the telephone and the answering machine on the top shelf, and some of our favorite cookbooks on the second shelf. I'm so proud.
My next project is to plant the chia herb garden. Yes, I know. I don't care.

( Religious Insights into the Seder: Part 1: All who hunger, come and eatCollapse )
