A couple weekends ago, I did another workshop at Nanopod Studios. This was a glass fusing workshop, which I have done before (and love doing!!!) but Tosca Teran (the owner creative wizard of Nanopod)  did things differently than what I have tried elsewhere.  (You may recall that I did a post a few months ago on Pate de Verre which was also at Tosca's studio).
At this workshop, there were tons of... Read more of this blog post »

Took me a wuile to get into this, but once it got going, I was really into it. A good rainy day, read it from start to finish story with a good plot. Plus, I liked the characters.

An enjoyable roller coaster ride. Hard to put down. My only issue was that at times I had to suspend disbelief a bit more than I'd like (how many times can a person be shot at but NOT get critically hit?)

Hated the main character. Very well written - some great word choices and beautiful sentences - but the story did not grab me in the least.

Topics Mentioning This Author

Herman Melville
“A smile is the chosen vehicle of all ambiguities.”
Herman Melville, Pierre: or, the Ambiguities

Kerrelyn Sparks
“Merda! Her lace panties had snagged on his ring, the signet ring he'd inherited from his father, Giacomo Casanova. His father had seduced hundred of women without any problems whatsoever, and he was having trouble with just one. This was the real reason he never used the Casanova name. He could never live up to his father's reputation. The old man was probably laughing in his grave.

Nine circles of hell," Jack muttered.

Hell?" Lara asked. "I thought I was the Holy Land."

You're paradise. Unfortunately, I am stuck there."

Her eyes widened. "Stuck?"

Normally, I would love being stuck to your lovely bum, but it would look odd if we go sightseeing with my hand under your skirt. Especially in the basilica."

She glanced down. "How can you be stuck?"

My ring. It's caught in the lace. See?" He moved his hand down her hip, dragging her undies down a few inches.

Okay, stop." She bit her lip, frowning, then suddenly giggled. "I can't believe this has happened."

I assure you, as much as I had hoped to get your clothes off, this was not part of my original plan."

She snorted. "No problem. Just rip yourself loose."

Are you sure?" It will destroy you undies."

She narrowed her eyes with a seductuve look. "Rip it."

Very well." He jerked his hand away, but the panties came with him. He yanked his hand back and forth, but the lacy, latex material simply stretched with him. "Santo cielo, they are indestructible."

Lara laughed.

He continued to wage battle, but to no avail. "They could use this material to build spaceships.”
Kerrelyn Sparks, Secret Life of a Vampire

Shel Silverstein
“Do a loony-goony dance
'Cross the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world
That ain't been there before.”
Shel Silverstein, A Light in the Attic

Winston S. Churchill
“Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.”
Winston S. Churchill

“If you're going to kick authority in the teeth, you might as well use two feet.”
