Congratulations! The winners of the T-Shirt and the Tote from RAW are Jessica and Sue! Woohoo! Please email me on skully @ skullybuzz .com (without the spaces) with your snailmail address. I’m putting up a couple more RAW pictures which I got from Jennifer Ray. The mermaid made her own costume!
Sorry, but I didn’t get her name.
And the lovely damsels are Shirley Daamsgard (left) and Mary Wine (right). Mary is a costumer, and she wore a real corset and bustle! Another RAW WOW moment!
This week we have a book from my wonderful critique partner, Leigh Wyndfield. You can check out all her books on her site. Yes, Leigh is my critique partner, but I’m not biased. I adore all her books so it’s hard for me to pick a favorite. She’s giving away a download of one book. If you win, I’ll put you in touch with her and you guys can decide which one. Anything you pick will be a treat. Remember, if I don’t hear from you in 24 hours, I’ll have to choose another winner, so be sure to check back next Monday. If you put your email in your blog comment (hint, hint!), then you’re set! Plus you’ll get my newsletter telling you about new releases and contests, I know you want that!!
Now, to my addiction. I had my physical and of course, my doctor ordered all those tests for cholesterol, etc. Before having the blood test I had to fast, and I wanted to combine the trip with another appointment at 2 pm. So that meant nothing but water until 2 in the afternoon. I thought sure fine okay. Oh! My! God! That also meant no morning mocha! Do you know what it’s like to wake up to the scent of chocolate and coffee and not be able to have any? Yes, my husband made his mocha but I couldn’t have any. I was literally drooling. I couldn’t concentrate all morning. I kept thinking about 2 o’clock and my mocha. At 10:45, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I went to the lab early, had the tests done, then ah, a blessed mocha. Thank God the doctors’ clinic where I go has a mocha stand. Whew! So I didn’t even have to drive to get it. However, I did bring my Alphasmart, so while I was waiting the next two hours for my 2 o’clock appointment, I got a lot of uninterrupted writing done. Conclusion? I’m a complete and utter mocha addict. But so is my husband. He keeps buying mocha machines at the Salvation Army just in case ours breaks down (because they’re so cheap, honey, and they have all the parts). We have two in the cubby over the fridge, two at the bottom of the pantry, two in my office cupboard, and the last one he bought, I had to stash in the linen closet. I told him no more mocha machines! So instead, he came home with a mixer to make cookies. Which I did, and now we’re addicted to cranberry white chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies.
So, what’s your addiction?
