my joy knows no bounds!

I was cleaning up the My Documents folder on my computer when I found a real gem. Back in Bosnia, my friend Amy and I were goofing around one day and decided to write a trashy romance novel in our spare time at work (waiting for cable clearances late on a Friday night can make you a bit punchy). We bounced it back a forth a few times writing alternate paragraphs and having a blast- we defined it as "gothic vampire porn" and knew it would be an instant bestseller is we ever actually managed to get it finished. We left post in summer 2005, and I thought we had lost our only copy of this masterpiece, until I found it buried under a strange name on my hard drive this evening. I read it (all four pages) and laughed my ass off. She's in Kosovo now, and I'm sending it to her tomorrow because I can see that it is her turn to write a paragraph or two.

If we ever get a whole chapter together, I'll certainly share. We're calling it Tender Mercies and it features a guy, a girl, a murder mystery, and an alternative Davenport, Iowa that is the heart of the study of the Dark Arts in the U.S. 'Nuff said!

my love for Craig continues

The dresser that needs to go? The one that is cluttering up my already cluttered living room? I posted it on Craigslist and have about 13 people interested. Fingers crossed the woman coming to look at it tomorrow night takes it- I'll keep you posted!

As I said in a comment, I can't participate in Garden Therapy because I have no outside space, but I did draft a post for AT that ties into the theme so you know I am with you in spirit!
