I just finished SHADOW KISS, the third book in Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy Series.  The needing hooked my and now I’m gonna have to buy the fourth one, BLOOD PROMISE! Before that, I read BLOOD LAW by Karen Tabke, and THE RELUCTANT NUDE by Meg Maguire. Both those books were unusal, and intriguing in very different ways.

I think next, I may read MY KILLER, MY LOVE by Mona Karel. But I’m also really anxious to read BLOOD PROMISE–oh how to choose!

So what are you reading?

Weekend Roundup!

Well the good news is I did not get arrested by the Weight Watchers police :-) Saturday night, Wizard and I went out for a steak and lobster dinner.   I kept looking around, feeling like I was going to be “busted,”  especially when I was dipping bread into the drawn butter sauce. But it was good! (And I have “extra” points to cover it, I think).

Sunday,  Biker Witch and I went shopping at a mall. I haven’t been to a mall in ages and man, we SHOPPED.  I even bought–wait for it–two swim suits.

Yeah…regretting the bread dipped in butter sauce now, LOL! But I needed the swim suits so I’m going to the gym and sticking to my points this week!

Oh and I saw a copy of BLOOD MAGIC, and noticed that it was in a second printing, that’s cool!

Lastly,  Key is being interview over on Laura Wright’s blog by Lucian, one of the hot sexy vamps from her Mark of the Vampire series. Come on over and say hello!

How was your weekend?

The World According To Points

Poor Wizard.  Two weeks ago, I joined Weight Watchers, and I’m giving it a month to see if I can make it work.  Wizard is being super supportive because he knows how much I want to do this.  So he’s fine with that, willing to eat whatever I make, etc.

But now my conversational skills have, well, narrowed. I see the world in terms of points.  That’s how this program works–foods are assigned points, and I’m allowed so many points in a day. But I get “extra credit’ points for exercise.

Here’s some conversation snippets:


Wizard: “So what kind of cake are you making for middle son’s birthday?”

Me: 9 point a slice lemon pound cake.


Wizard: Do you want BBQ ribs for dinner?

Me: “How many points is that? OMG, I have to look up the points!”


Wizard: I think I’ll have a drumstick.

Me: You mean the 8 point drumstick in the freezer or the roasted chicken leg that’s 4 points?”

Wizard:  I need a beer.

Me: 5 point regular or 4 point light beer?

Wizard: I’ll be in the garage.


While on the touring the Midway Ship, we walked all over, including tons of steep stairs.

Wizard: More stairs?

Me: These aren’t just stairs, they are extra credit points!

Wizard: There’s a brig downstairs Witch. Bread and water only.

Me: Bread has a lot of points.

Wizard: Fine. I’ll lock myself in the brig. Later.


So yeah…poor Wizard. On the other hand, he’s naturally slim and that’s just totally annoying.  And wrong. Sigh.

So any bets on how long I’ll last on Weight Watchers? We all know what a chocolate fiend I am!
