I truly enjoy trying new food and drinks.   I have been haunting the local Asian grocery for several months, and I have almost exhausted their stash of Asian snacks and drinks (including some that I would never recommend to anyone).   So now I need a new place to get Japanese snacks.  I am still trying to snack my way through the Pocky flavors.  I've tried most of the usual/normal ones, and green tea, and want to try some of the more unique (like 5 Blacks. Oh, how I have tried to find that one!).  I also discovered that the Japanese have different and novel flavors of Pringles - and I want to try them - how could anyone reject Feta cheese flavored, Cheese fondue flavored, or Teriyaki?  I think I could safely skip the Soy Sauce flavored, as my heart would explode just at the idea of so much sodium that close to my body.  But the others... oh, and French Caesar Salad flavored.  And Mustard Mayonnaise flavored.  Sure, they could be vile, but they could be really good too!

So... anyone know of a good source for any of the above?

Here it is with only a month left in the Amazon.com Breakthrough Novel and I only have 9 little reviews.  The competition has dozens.  Scores, even!  *whimper*  *grovel*  Thank you so much to those who HAVE actually reviewed.  I DO appreciate it.


I just wanna win, is that so much to ask?????  (Hmmm... too many question marks.  Truly the sign of a deranged mind).

Please, all you lovely people who might be reading this, please go to www.amazon.com/abna  and to the Science Fiction section, and to The Wreckers, now back on page 6 or 7 since they alphabetized, and please review my story!

Happy Belated birthday to my wonderful amazing darling astonishing sister used_songs

In other news...

I had a rather odd dream Sat night. I dreamt that I was on an anime-style but definitely WWII aircraft carrier as a training pilot (yes, I know, wrong side of the globe for female training pilots). A kamikaze struck the ship and there was much fire. I was sent to find Meg, the other training pilot. When I found her, it was Dana (Lady Mary) ?! In the dream, as soon as I saw her (in flying gear, not Lady Mary garb), I thought "Oh, yeah, I've had this dream before. But why isn't Dana in a dress?" and then went on. I chased her through the ship, trying to get her attention to get our planes off the ship.

Go figure.
I haven't a single clue. Haven't watched any anime recently, or WWII movies.
So I don't get it.

I don't often post twice in one day (or hells, even twice in one week!) but for this I make an exception.

Late last year I entered Amazon.com's Breakthrough Novel contest. This morning I was notified that I am a semi-finalist. What this means is that now people get to go to Amazon and download my novel to read and review. (or at least part of it....).


So.... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you are reading this, go to Amazon.com/abna and go to science fiction/fantasy section of entries... find The Wreckers (about 3rd or 4th page) and download it. Please give a good, positive, fabulous (but real and preferably honest) review.


Here's the link to the page Wreckers is listed on.

Please read and review! I have wanted to be a published author since I was in middle school. I keep getting a little bit closer, and this would help get me THAT MUCH closer!

And if you like it, let your fantasy-reading friends know! Have them read and review...

What Shay Means

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.
What's Your Name's Hidden Meaning?</div Yeah, this is MOSTLY me, I guess. And a little frightening. I am certainly not "the whole package!"

Looking forward to it.  Gathering stuff for it.  Frantically sewing so I have an underskirt for it!

Still job hunting.  MAY have a few-week contract starting soon.  Waiting for call back.  I worked for these people before; they liked me, blah blah blah... so we shall see.  A few weeks is better than nothing!

Got a WONDERFUL package from my delightful sis... a dinosaur with head pattern (YAY!) that will help me IMMENSELY with the head for another dino I am trying to make, as well as more tea!  YAY!  Everyone who has seen the teapot she gave me thinks it is the best - I have GOT to have a chinese food and tea party sometime soon!  Also got a package for my b-day... but I'm not opening it until my b-day.  :)  I can wait.  Honest.

Not much going on, really.  

Made a Star Trek playlist for my IPod.  It's got TOS and Voyager theme, several speech snippets, songs by Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, James Darren (Vic Damone on DS9) and Brent Spiner.  Anyone got any more suggestions?  (Oh, and it has tribble sounds, too).

Right.  Visiting my GM for XMas... she is still in rehab for her broken hip, but bloody stubborn (errr... determined) to come home and she's doing better than they expected.  The rehab people don't have to force her to do things.  She takes walks with her walker and so forth all on her own.  This is a good thing.  

XMas in rehab center was a little weird....  It's attached to a nursing home, so there were lots of very lonely looking older folks.  We tried to say hi to a lot of them and so on....

I've been crafting every day since Saturday.  Current count: 5 rats, 3 dinosaurs, 3 turtles and 1 bird.  So far, so good.  

On the downside... because I live alone, I've become accustomed to "ME" time - where it's just me, and theres no tv, no radio, no nothing.  Just me, the cat, and quiet.  Don't get that here.  Hit my limit this afternoon.  Wanted to cry from all the sensory input.  Fortunately, we were coming back to my GM's house - where we are staying while in East Texas - and I could put the IPod earphones in and close my eyes.  My wonderful sister threw her shawl over my head, which helped to break up the light and the air that was blowing RIGHT on my face, and I got back without making an idiot of myself.  Went and laid down for about 2 hours and was okay.

Miss my cat, my house, and my friends.  My GM is getting better.  My dad is cranky, but that's understandable, since he and my mom have been up here for a month or so.  They miss their house and their friends.  At least I get to go home soon.
