And I have no idea who this is

But I like the way she thinks, and she writes, and she writes her thinks. Must ask.

Where do you stand morally?

Rather than steal the content, I'd rather post a link. Take this heartwrenching quiz and get some insight into your own values. (Then read the comments. *grin*)

The things we do for money

David, Steph and I are now the new Karaoke Hosts at a local neighbourhood pub, appearing as MC and The Dirty Urges ©. C'mon out Wednesday and Saturday to Alfredo's. It's been a blast.

Freakin hilarious

This guy witnesses a crash, and his entire rendition is caught on voice mail. See the post in another blog. You MUST listen. :)

Beats the hell outta bike, walk or run

My good buddy Jim ( he hates 'buddy') took part in a very cool fundraising event. We need something cool like that here. Mind you, our 7 storey buildings just may not have the same snappy sex appeal.

In Conversation with God

Came across this great photo and caption.

Had a great time tonight doing an Improv show for a crowd of about 150. It was nice to get back into the groove of THINKING! QUICK THINK! THINK SMART YOU DUMBASS! (That's what goes through my head.)

I've also crossed the 2000 word mark on a short story I am writing, tentatively titled Synergistic Connections. May lose that rather syllabic title.

How to Write a Book When You Have a Job, Kids, or Your Life is Otherwise Crazed

One of things I wish I wrote. ;-) It's a humorous article on balancing life and writing. I haven't actually come across many that are good.

A is for Apple, V is for Vagina

You gotta try this! In my frantic everyday typing, I kept slipping on the keys. If you type only one letter in the address bar, you are taken to a site, different one for each letter. I want to know how the hell that works! Who got dibs on the freakin alphabet?!


Cool idea. Using short video as a marketing tool for books. This one is cute.
Fondling Your Muse. Might have to buy the book.

Made from Beer.

The big beer ad. Made me laugh.

Speak engrish, dammit

This is freakin hilarious.
You MUST visit the adult section.

Wasting time, again.

Which SciFi/Fantasy Character are you?

This is me. *snort*

Possessing a rare combination of wisdom and humility, while serenely dominating your environment you selflessly use your powers to care for others.

Seems like the writerly thing to do

Seems like the 'thing' to do. I'm posting the panels I'll be on at VCon. Come say hi!

Balancing Life with Writing
Stress management, suggestions on how to stay healthy at cons (audience participation) & Con Survival Tips, etc (This is SO made just for me.)
Atlantis: myth or reality?
Are Happy Endings Too American?

I'm sorry

But I do have to point this out. Has anyone noticed the eerie resemblance of my avatar to the picture?

(Please note, the red cup does contain beer.)
(And the little avatar piggy nose isn't big enough. But I'll stop there.)

To take it in stride or to have a hissy fit

Came across this author's blog today. He has posted a rather lengthy analysis of the different reviews he's received for his first novel. I think it's freakin hilarious. Obviously, we all get upset when somebody doesn't like our work, but he's looking at it analytically to better his position.

You go, dude.

My neighbour saw me on TV.
It was an ad for the movie, that premieres FRIDAY. I don't get the local channel, so I have to wait until FRIDAY to see it. Yeesh. ;-)

Latest issue

I'll have the latest issue of Neo-opsis in a few days. Let me know if you want a copy!


Are you coming to VCon?? Well, why the hell not?

crossing the line

Check out the DVD cover for Steph's new film. It was a partnership with the Northern Women's Centre Society, and takes a look at the issue of harassment.
My mug is in there somewhere. You can play "Where's Whacko?"
The premiere is Friday evening at UNBC. Come out for an enjoyable evening.

Buy the damn book, write for the next one.

Lynda has taken a bit of a novel approach to her shared universe projects. (no pun intended.) She is willing to work with writers who find her 'world' fascinating and want to create within those boundaries. The opportunity to write and publish in an anthology is a very unique one for budding writers.
In all of my ranting, I failed to post a link for anyone interested in buying the anthology. As soon as it's on Amazon, I'll post that link as well, for those of us voraciously hoarding Air Miles.
ORU Anthology


Clayten & Tammy, two lovely people, have been making photo records of some recent Cons with their spooky ability to catch the money shot. I have blatantly stolen some pictures from our recent trip to Seattle, included a few below, and of course, so they don't hate me, a link to their site.

This is myself with Ted Rivera, grand puba of The Chupacabra movie.

Here are Nina Munteanu (see blog entry below) and Lynda Williams. Could it get any sweeter than this?

And meet Commander Craig, of The Commander's Log.

Now don't you wish you had come?

What NOT to write

Hee hee. Just discovered these guidelines at Strange Horizons. Please don't be a dumbass and submit stories stuck in these stereotypical plot lines/settings.

Meet Nina

I just had to post a link to Nina Munteanu's funky website. She is a Canadian SF author, with a stamina for partying that almost overshadows my own. If you ever get a chance to read her work or meet her in person, please do so. Both are equally enjoyable.

So much to say and none of it relevant to your crisis.
