I have been very aware that I'm boring you all to tears. No, no, let's not lie to each other, I'm sitting here and yawning is all I'm doing. Well it turns out there are some archives around here and I wondered what I was up to at this exact same time last year.
I was much worse.
I don't know how you all stuck in there but, wow. The good news is I'm not having any anxiety issues like I did last year at this time, taxes turned out to be a snap and I already live in my new house. Who'd a thunk it? Amazing what a year will do.
So, some stupid questions and general nonsense about to commence. Hey, you must be bored also or you'd be off somewhere else. Or doing your taxes.
1. Over at Dear Author there are two women named Jane and Jayne. I thought they were the two women who ran the site. So my question is who are Jan and Janine? I noticed when I filled out my Rita ballot that four names were at the bottom and suddenly I'm wondering who everybody is. Then I was all tickled that their names all started with J and then I realized they could be akas. Sorry, I don't get out much.
2. How many forums are you signed up for in the romance world? And can I just say, I must be getting old because when AAR switched over to the new setup I was all, 'I'm out!'. I see how they work and stuff but I liked being able to pick into a thread at certain levels. Let's not get into the signature lines that can have oodles of graphics flashing at me (not at AAR). I don't know if there are as many discussions going on now or not. I used to be able to flash in and see everything in one shot. I knew where I had left off so I could see all the new stuff in one shot. Now, you have to click back into the area, page through till you find your post and then read on from there. Yes, there is the 'new posts while I was away' feature but they only lead you to the beginning thread. I'm just saying. Not so conducive for the lazy.
3. How hooked into the reading world are you? I mean, if you are a romance reader are you at the forums and boards often? If you are more along of the lines of fantasy, are there other places you hang at besides Twisted Kingdom? I guess I'm asking if there are sites like AAR for fantasy and sci-fi and chicklit cause, seriously, those would be the places to go to if I wanted to start reading in another genre. I *think* I'm becoming more of an isolationist without meaning to. I like my blog hopping way too much and it's like visiting friends but I am less likely to hang out where there are tons of comments. Probably because then someone has already said what I wanted to only better and well, that sucks.
That's enough for now.
I decided to pull down Summer Breeze by Catherine Anderson after Holly suggested it in the comments. (The heroine is agoraphobic - squeeeee!) I'm thinking I need to go book buying also.
This will come as no surprise to anyone but I'm of the mind that if my copy of Claiming the Courtesan doesn't show up in the mail tomorrow I may have to go out and buy it.
I'm so predictable.
OH!!! Who's the other Nathan Fillion fan? Did you watch the new show Drive!? It the Amazing Race only hard core! I'm going to be so pissed if they cancel this show!
