I've been reading a slew of books - but I feel like posting teasers from a couple of my fav writers
from page 175;
See? good writing, fun dialogue, kick ass women...oh yeah!
from another one of my fav writers - up and coming writer who is continuously working on one writing project or another - seriously, this girl has lots of great stories in her head - is Doc, Vampire-Hunting Dog
That's it for now - and below is the other captioned-by-me LOL cat. If you've never heard of these before, there's this website. You can join, and there are many many pics with funny and/or sarcastic captions. All the pics are available to be re-captioned by anyone. There are also pics that have no captions, just waiting for one; it's also possible to upload your own cute or funny cat pic for others to caption. So far, I've been inspired four times - made five captions. It's not easy (for me) to come up with them, but it's fun and I'm happy I came up with the few I did. :)
**speaking of creepy....have you ever been laying in bed (no not that kind of creepy) trying to sleep when you feel the mattress suddenly dip down. You know the dip down, like when a cat jumps up on the bed right next you, or the dog jumps up or when someone sits down on the mattress? It's a dip on a certain spot, a small dip. Well, this has happened to me a few times lately - everyone is asleep - I'm usually the last person up - and the dogs are all snoring and sleeping at the feet of our bed (under the covers, of course), when I've felt a definite dip movement on the bed, behind me right about shoulder level. Each time it felt like our cat (who is pretty hefty) jumped up. I would turn to pet him and NOTHING IS THERE. seriously. No cat, the dogs are still asleep and no one is about. Now I've heard sounds that make me think there are ghosts, and I've had people in our previous houses say they've seen people that don't exist in our house at night. We've all seen the a flash of our dead cat's ghost. But it's all been non physical things. Until we lived in this house. There was that time long ago when I couldn't move and a light was shining in the window, and I heard loud footsteps. Then there was another time when me and the two grandchildren were sleeping in the other room and suddenly the whole room became extremely dark, couldn't see anything - and I could swear it felt like something was in the room. It lasted for only a short while and suddenly the room was light enough to see as much as you can normally see on a night with no lights on - the moonlight shining in, etc. But I've never before felt the bed moving when NO ONE was around, and the cat was nowhere to be seen. Now that's creepy. LOL - just needed to get that off my chest.
