I join sillymagpie in the "looks young" club; today I stopped for a lottery ticket and picked up a bottle of Mike's Hard Lime for after-dinner, and I was not only carded, but pleased when the clerk looked at my driver's license and gasped, "'64? {year I was born} No way!"

This is not right:

MYSTERY! - Who-dunnit? And How? And Why? Your
inquiring mind understands the secret workings
of the villainous murderer and thief. You feel
the need to build a puzzle so complex, and a
villain so unsuspected that you leave the
reader gasping in shock on the last page.
Dashiell Hammett and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are
your guides.

What Kind of Novel Should I Write?
brought to you by Quizilla

I have no idea how I managed to get that response. I should no more be writing mysteries than hard science articles. I figured with my responses it was a clear-cut case of exactly what I do write: Romance. Romantic fantasy, admittedly, but romance nevertheless. I CAN write comedy or action, but my plotting is so weak I can't imagine how I could come up with a credible mystery. I like to read them, but some of my favorite mystery series actually contain a good deal of, well, romance.

Getting up at 4 am is not early enough to get to work at by 5. {sigh} I just couldn't sleep last night-- I kept waking up. Phoo. I better get some sleep tonight. I was actually starting to wind down this afternoon, and didn't get nearly as much work done as I could have normally (at least, I don't think I did). Well, the overtime will be very nice, indeed.

I'm trying desperately to get back down to the weight I was before Vegas, but it's extremely slow going. Plus, I'm starving and craving Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC my butt, it's FRIED!!!) and thinking about cookies. And it's not that I'm starving myself, either. I know better. I'm eating Sensible, Weighed, and Carefully Calorie-Counted meals. I'm just still hungry and craving.
