Lorelei Unplugged - "I've Got That Gutter Feeling"

My first day back to driving a bus and even though it was a relatively painless ordeal, and the rain came in to save us from being overly heated while driving (we had 75 as a high today), I'm drained right now. Well, I've also had one beer, and that's my limit.

Weird Stories In The News:
I saw the story on the co-founder of group who was behind that video about the brutal African warlord this morning. Jason Russell is in the hospital for exhaustion. The explanation was that he was suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition. Well, I saw the video of him running butt-naked in the street this morning. I can't say he looked like he was exhausted. But I'm thinking there's a lot more to this story and I'll just take a back seat and wait and see what the whole story really is. A lot of times when news breaks they are in such a rush to write it that they don't explore the whole story. But let me just say this when I'm exhausted, like I am now, I'm not about to go outside into the street my butt hanging out there slapping the sidewalk with my hands and yelling something. I think someone would want to examine my brain first.

On to the more placid side of my life.
When I get comments from readers, or those who have given my book to someone as a gift to read and tell me that they are enjoying it, I rejoice. Nothing could make me happier than someone who is reading something I wrote and some how relates this to me. Sales also make me a little giddy too. I had a woman cashier come up to me who'd purchased my latest book for her daughter, she told me she just began reading it and really likes it so far. Good. Love to hear it.

I'm currently working on my edits, but you all know this. I've posted about this in both Muse and Lorelei's Writing Journal, so I won't bore you with more of the same. But just a heads up, I may not be posting very much this week, next week, and the week after that. So, if I post anything at all, it might be ramblings of whatever I can come up with.

Do you feel lucky? ya?

I do have to do a Lucky 7 post, but not until I find 7 people who have not done this already. I will blame want to thank Christina Rains for choosing me. Thanks Christina...that was really nice of you to think of me, now that you've passed this off on 7 more people... me being one of them--ehem... I feel like I've come down with the seventh deadly virus or something. Yes! So this means I get to pass it on to seven more people, so watch out... don't get too close. I might pass it on to you!!!


  1. Oh no! I haven't even finished answering all of Eve's questions.

  2. Hehehe. Yes, thank me. I know exactly what weird story you're talking about there. The family explained his actions as "exhaustion." Exhaustion doesn't lead a person to do THAT in public.

  3. A high of 75, wow! It's been stormy and cold here. :( Happy editing, I hope it's going well!

  4. Shelly, when you do, I'll pick on you next.

    Hmmm, I'm going to have to be sneeky and find a few more people. I've got a very short list so far. How do you find 7 people to do this who have not already?

    Christine, I knew someone out there would have heard this one and agree with me. I'm still waiting for the truth to come out. I'm going to guess it has to do with all that money people have donated and--it has only gone toward the films etc. Not to those people or for those people at all.

    Heather, we seem to have shoved March somewhere out of the way and gone straight into May. HOpe you'll have a better spring. And thanks for your well wishes!
