Y'all, I can't believe I'm behind on this. I mentioned it on Facebook but didn't get to it on here. my beloved dream land New Zealand as you know was rocked by an earthquake earlier this week and many were killed and displaced. you can make donations to the New Zealand Red Cross at the link I posted below.
New Zealand is so awesome. I have a friend from their and her family lives in Christchurch. thankfully her family was safe but many aren't so lucky. so if you can help, even if it's just passing this link along, that would be great!!! I'll close this post with an honest to God quote from uber Kiwi and Bacchus, Sam Neill. it doesn't relate to the earthquake or Two Paddocks but it made me do a major spit take!
Why did the chicken cross the road?
Most chickens crossing roads I assume to be after my autograph. I never say no to a chook.-- Sam Neill

this little clip is just proof of the types you'll see in the movie so you know Gibbons' characters in the book are rich. another thing about this is it feeds my anglophile inner self. hell, it's an outer self because I freely admit I love the Brits and all things British. so GO NOW AND ORDER THIS BOOK or check it out of the library. but read this gem. end of little of lady like rant about old books.

it's kind of hard switching focus like that. after being immersed in the minds of my characters for so many months, it's hard to switch back to reality. I was telling a friend about my WIP and he was stunned to find out that there wasn't one single paranormal element in it. yep, that's true but my story isn't run of the mill by a long shot. could you imagine me doing run of the mill? no. all I'll say about it is my MC is living my dream. unfortunately it doesn't pan out for her and causes a big ol bag of trouble but it's a fun read along the way. if I can't write paranormal, I write edgy and funny. so now I'll head back to the world of SEC universities and trying to be a success in a thankless job the normal way. that never works so you know it's gonna have some spice. and I think even Eamon would dig it. I know I'm being vague and stuff but I'm not ready to talk details about FUNdraiser yet. when I am, you'll wish I'd shut up!

I'm uber spooky and superstitious and whatnot. lately with all the time I have on my hands, I've been doing a bunch of pondering. I never come up with anything earth shaking but yesterday while driving, I came up with something. I figured out the root of whatever has spun my karma out of control. oh yeah, I believe in karma. I've seen it work. BIG TIME. there is one incident and possession that is the jump off point from my problems. I asked my mom what she thought about my revelation but she just kind of meh'd me. which means that she thinks that if I think it's true then she will just nod and go along with it. but that was good enough. my discovery seemed to make sense and gave me a new outlook on how to approach things.
and then I heard this song on the radio while in the process of trying to repay my karmic debt and I knew I was on the right track. p.s. I love this video and song. if I ever got married, I'd probably do something like this. this is so awesome even though it's kind of old now. still amazing!
