Happy Friday

Yesterday I was grumpy from mild sinuses, endless work and people not doing their freaking jobs. This Three Grump Moon pic from LOL Cats about sums it up:

But then I went here The Daily Puppy to get my dose of Happy

How can you look at the picture and not feel better?

This weekend Wizard and I are going out to celebrate our anniversary. Just dinner, we’re not doing anything big. But we’re going to our favorite place and really looking forward to it.

What are you doing?

Have a great weekend!

    I love the photos. They make me smile. My mother sent me a bunch yesterday trying to cheer me up too.
    Yesterday I spent trying to pack up the ruined stuff for trash. I don’t know how we’re going to get rid of it all but we will. Hopefully we’ll have all in order by Sunday then maybe I can read :).
    I hope you have a great weekend!

    Happy Anniversary!! I hope you have a lovely dinner together.

    That daily puppy is sooo cute. You really can’t look at him without smiling. =oD

    I made up my mind to finally finish this damn book from 2008 – even if it does remind me of the scene in The Blob where the people-eating goo is oozing through the vents in the theater and everyone is screaming and running. So, with that in mind, I’ll be editing this weekend (editing… revising, rewriting, tearing my hair out) and next weekend and next wee…

    Jen don’t forget Desert. Even if you have to share with Wizard.

    Viki I been on the clean up end of flooding before. A thing to keep in mind. Wear gloves and a breathing mask while cleaning up especally if you have to remove any carpet or things like that in a basement. You can find yourself getting very ill from molds, dusts, germs that develop very quickly in the damp environment. Please becareful with your health.

    BE I have heard of writer’s block but you have a writer’s blob huh. How has your submission to the constest gone?

    LOL, yeah, Kat. Writer’s Blob – when your book has so many pieces and facets that it grows out of control. Scary stuff. And thanks for asking about my submission. I haven’t heard anything yet on that, but look for me to be in the Baker’s Dozen contest on Miss Snark’s First Victim. My urban fantasy – Djinnocide – will be #14.

    DESSERT! Perfect excuse for it! Happy anniversary to you and the Wiz. May you have many more years of love and laughter in your lives.

    Viki, I’m so sorry for the mess! Been there. Kat’s right. Take health precautions!

    B.E., I think you need to add a Blob to your next Djinnocide book! Keep us posted on when the voting starts!

    Kat, have a great weekend! And everyone else, too, of course. :D

    Me? It’s NaNoWriMo. I’ve got Saturday alone to write so I’m going to. Gotta get these books done! Sent my final copyeditor edits back to my editor for the contemporary short, BEST LAID PLANS. And I got notice that FAERIE FOOL is available for pre-order (paperback) at Wild Rose’s site. Now I just need to get the next two Moonstruck books written! Turning off the internet now. Srsly. Stop laughing. I am. :lol:

    Viki you are having a bad week! I hope you can get some downtime this weekend. And thanks on my anniversary.

    B.E., (and Kat) Writer’s Blob is priceless! I have that by every half way point in every book! B.E., you can wrestle the blob and win!

    Miss Snark is still up? And having a contest? I’m so out of touch. I’ll find her again and follow!

    Waiting is hard, hope you hear good news soon!

    Kat, Wizard reminded me about dessert too-which will be Molten Lava Cake (and explains why I’m having trouble with my weight lately!) Wizard is hooked on that cake, but he doesn’t gain weight. So not fair!

    Very good reminder for Viki by the way.

    Silver, I’m laughing with you not at you! Congrats on the release of FAERIE FOOL! And getting the copy edits of BEST LAID PLANS (great title!) off! Now finished the next Moonstruck book!

    I’m the one writer on the planet that doesn’t do NANoWriMo…

    Thanks on our anniversary! It’s shocking how long we’ve been married.

    Thanks guys. We’ve tried to be careful but the 20 yr old listens to no one. At least he showers right away :).

    Every one have a great weekend :)!

    Miss Snark’s still absent, Jen. This is a gal who started a blog a while back called Miss Snark’s First Victim. She does all sorts of contests and things to help hopeful writers, and does it all anonymously – going by the name Authoress.

    And I don’t think there’s voting, Silver. This is a contest where 13 agents ‘bid’ on your entry if they want to read more. One will bid, say, 10pgs and the next will bid 20… up to a full. The agent who bids the highest request gets to see your work first. (At least I think that’s how it works.)

    Only the top 25 out of 130 total adult entries make it to the bidding phase, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I’ll let y’all know if mine makes it.
