Monday mayhem

Holy crap am I glad this day is over. I usually hate Monday’s but today, hooey! Yeah. There should be several people very grateful I know how horrid I look in orange.

Total insanity reigned at the day job. I do not know where these people come from but, for the love of all that is good in the universe, GO BACK! I’m sure others of your kind are missing you.

Didn’t get as much done on my story yesterday as I’d have liked but I think I’m starting to find the groove for it. I intend on pouring myself something very well chilled and high in alcohol content and working on it some more. I think I’m thinking a little too much on it. Need to get into that sweet spot where the characters just lead me along.

Now, if only I could get them talking. They are being particularly stubborn. Not overly surprising since they are my creations. Figures they’d take on some of my traits. I’d just hoped that wouldn’t be one of them.

Oh well, I guess it’s better than nothing. Anyway, I’m going to refill my glass and get to writing I think. Have a good night ~ Moira

With just a bit

Of chocolate, I managed to survive the weekend. Okay, I admit, it took more than just a “bit” of chocolate. It took a great number of choco eggs and part of a choco bunny to survive the weekend with the family. But, I did survive and, now, I’m back to the grindstone.

This of course includes my “real” job and my writing. Sadly I just didn’t have the energy over the weekend to do any writing of any sort. Hell, I don’t even think I thought about writing anything now that I contemplate that just a little more. I would have had something jumped up and down in my head waving it’s little mythical arms madly screaming in it’s little mythical voice “pick me! pick me!”. Sadly nothing demanded my attention.

On another note, I went over to peek at the Coming Soon page on Evernight, eee! My first book is creeping up the list and the second one’s on it -toward the bottom of course- but on it! Eee! LOL! Very exciting I have to say and had me doing a little happy dance.

So, with April coming to a close I should be seeing first rounds of edits on Forever Kind of Love at some point soon, fingers crossed, LOL! Not overly worried, it shall come when it shall come. But, I will admit, I’m very excited to see it and the cover too. Soooooo excited to see what they’ve come up with from my, admittedly, meager offerings of details. I think I was a wee bit nervous while supplying details and I can only hope their artists can read minds. Although, most days, my mind’s a scary place to be poking about – maybe it’s best they can’t read my mind lol!

All righty then… Well, I think that’s all I have to say for tonight. Off to troll the Net and see what’s been happening while I was in the anti-Net-verse over the weekend. Have a lovely Monday and, if I missed anyone earlier, Happy Easter! ~ Moira

Great news

Tonight, I just got an acceptance for my second story. Holy crap! So quick too, I’m stunned and more than a little flustered. Excited and stunned. Wowza!

LOL! So I’m have a great Monday now, earlier…m’eh, not so much. It was kind of a crummy day at work, the whole having to go really sucked and then they actually insisted I had to stay! WTF! Don’t they know I could be doing much more interesting things? But, the point is, it started crummy and then I open my email after dinner and got an awesome surprise! Made it all better with just a few words.

On another note


I am a HUGE GoT (Game of Thrones) fan. I don’t know about anyone else but, because I a) have a PVR and b) taped it, I have been watching the final scenes over and over and over. It was most joyous to see how the very best thing to ever happen on the show to happen.

Last warning if you haven’t seen it!

JOFFREY IS DEAD!! WOOT! O.M.G! Finally! That little shit (great actor, pulled it off with true skill) had it coming. Pretty much from day one of his reign, he needed to be put down. That the writer waited this long… grrrr! Only thing I feel bad for is that now Tyrion has the finger being pointed at him by his psychotic sister Cersei.

Anyway, that’s all I have for tonight. I’m going to go and watch the scene a few more times. The gurgles are the very best part… ~ Moira

Oh my horribly

Aching joints and muscles! Ack! Whoever said a desk job puts little to no strain on your body has never worked at my lurverly place of employment. By boss is a sadist I swear! His motto is, if you don’t feel the burn by noon and are ready to die by the end of the day than you have not worked hard enough.


The reason why, you may or may not ask, but I’m telling you anyway because it’s my blog and I can so pfft! Because it’s his project, his baby, his blah, blah, blah… Whatever. If it’s anyone else’s, we get a m’eh. But if it’s his then we have to be all hands on deck for however long he can legally work our asses in a day.

A slave driver, that’s another accurate term for him.

Because he is. The man does not have an off switch. Again, if it’s his “baby”. Anyone else’s and we can’t get the time of day. Yeesh!

So, the point of all this… I ache, head to toe ache. OMFG! If I didn’t have enough coffee (aka: caffeine) running through my blood stream to power a small city for a week I’d try to sleep. But, I do. I’m a coffee addict. Sue me. Hopefully my body will burn through it quickly and then I can just pass out for however many hours I can manage and wake feeling…well, less achy is pretty much my only goal. LOL!

Off to hunt down some sort of muscle relaxant ~ Moira

Why you

Evil Monday you! Ugh, I really hate Mondays. First there’s that whole having to get out of bed, then there’s dressing to look like the professional you’re supposed to be and THEN, on top of all that, they expect you to stay there the entire day! Why? Why? Oh, why?

On the plus side of things though, my co-worker was back. Still looking a little stiff and sore, she’d thrown her back out. I totally sympathised with her. I myself have chronic back problems, too many years abusing my body when I thought I was invincible I think, lol! So I totally get where she’s coming from and, while I truly believe age is just a number, she does have a few years on me and has had other issues that are aggravating her current trouble.

And, to top it all off… Ready for this? Are you really ready? LOL! My book got accepted by the publisher. I was completely stunned to find the email in my inbox when I checked my non-work email. (Really hope my boss doesn’t see this.) I have to say that it was a definite thrill though, honestly, I don’t think it’s fully sunk in yet. I don’t think it really will until I take a deep breath and sign on the dotted line, so to speak.

So yeah, bunch of good stuff actually came about today. Kinda cool actually. But now I need to run out and find me a pub for a tall glass o’ Guinness.

Sláinte to you all! ~ Moira

Who thought this up?

Seriously? I’m asking the question. Who the hell came up with this “brilliant” idea to jerk us and our clocks around? Whoever it was needs to get kicked in the throat for this stupidity.

Why can’t we just live on one time, no back and forth and be happy? I’d be happy. I know everyone where I work and everyone I know, would be happy. Not a single one of us would complain about permanently being on one time all year long.

And really, it’s not so much to “fall back” as it is the “spring ahead and ruin your whole fucking weekend” one that’s the issue. That and the next week or so that it takes to convince your body that it’s okay, that this is the way it’s supposed to be. My body damn well knows better. It knows the situation for what it is. Crap. Pure and total crap.

Other than that, and several XL coffees to keep me functioning even at a slightly diminished capacity, I survived! Hells yeah! Barely, but I did, so it counts.

And, with that in mind, I think I’m going to get a drink so I’ll sleep well tonight ~ Moira
