42 degrees in Minnesota is flip flop weather!

I have a headache. There, updated!




Moving on, life has been pretty uneventful. I had an interview at a local restaurant about a hostessing job, never got called back. Then I got a tip from my brother's friend who'll possibly be managing a bar. The sale isn't final yet, but he told me that'll he'll call me when they start interviewing. How's that for networking? I could use a job to help me start saving to move.

Now, I told my friend Ryan that I'd pimp his book a little. Now, just so you know, I haven't read it yet, so I don't exactly know how it would settle with you, my readers... all five of you, right? As soon as I have the fundage, I will buy it, read it and review it here. If you want to wait until then, by all means. But if you would like something new, and maybe a little twisted to read, go here to order your copy of Tropes, by Ryan Acheson. Him and his wife, Katy, have fed me on many occasion, and I even took my header picture at a cupcake decorating party they held for our friends' amusement.

I will also pimp my BFF's contest for her. She's an amazing writer, and an amazing person, and her stuff I have read! And collaborated on a little bit. So I'm a little biased. She's also getting her own personal website, which I am so excited about.

I've been writing a bit as well. I really think I have too many projects on my hands, but each one is getting attention. Probably not as much as they need, but I'm working on it.

One of the projects is something tentatively called "Possession, A Love Story", inspired by Tom Waits' 'Black Wings'. It's one of my favorite songs, and I love Tom Waits (I'm such a hipster, apparently.) and I've been working on darker stories lately, more so that usual. It comes easier than the happy stuff, I'm afraid. A sign of the times?

I'm saving that story for NaNoWriMo, I scribbled down the details so I wouldn't forget when November rolls around.

Ooooof, now it's dinner time. And my brother's birthday is tomorrow. But he's not getting his present until next week when the new Dexter book comes out. I'm such a nice sister.
