Egads

Sorry this is late, but I'm having internet problems (at least, I hope it's the internet). This is so frustrating. So since I'm a bit flustered at the moment, I'm just going to send you off to a couple of places.

First, my wonderful FBA (Future Bestselling Author) Toni Anderson is having a contest where she's giving away Loreth Anne White's trilogy of the Shadow Soldiers: The Heart of a Mercenary, A Sultan's Ransom and Rules of Re-Engagement. Plus, because she's such a great person, a copy of her ebook - Her Sanctuary. The contest is until the 9th, with the winner announced on the 10th.

Also, for you cat lovers, or likers, or whatever ... go here for a blog post that will have you saying "Oh yes, been there, done that, killed the cat".

Dropped the car off at the mechanics this morning. They do take Visa btw. Great.

Okay, I'm off now before I commit computercide, or technocide, or whatever "cide" destroying a computer is called. If you don't here from me ...

Oh - Happy Birthday to my brother David.

Internet problems are such a pain. Hope they get fixed soon.

Peggy said...

Happy Birthday, David! :-)

Just give it a smack! ;)

Dropped the car off at the mechanics this morning

Boy, I really need to slow down when I'm reading. I saw this first as "dropped the CAT off at the mechanics". ROFL!

Brandy said...

Heh-heh. The cat post is hilarious. And I can't wait to try her book as well. It's going to be released December 26!
Sorry to hear about the car problems. And most especially sorry to hear about the internet problems! Will send good thoughts your way.

Brandy said...

Oh, meant to say that Toni's contest is fun, she even talked me into it! (and there are tons of metric conversion sites on the internet for those, who like me, can't remember inches to cm!)

Meretta said...

Your internet woes are most certainly leaves, Bailey. That's what gets me each time! ;)

Regardless, I hope it's sorted out soon and that the car's repair bill is negligible.

Happy Birthday David!

Jill said...

Hope the car isn't too expensive!!

Toni Anderson said...

LOL 'great person' :D Must be talking about someone else ;)

I finished my book!!! Ahead of schedule thank you very much. And senmt it to various locations in case my computer decided to fritz. I hope yours is better soon. I hate car trouble--hugs!!!

Come see my contest and win some books. It is easy peesy :)

Marty said...

I've been guilty of kicking my computer. *completely by accident* (bats eyelashes)

Dru said...

How long will you be without your car?

Carol said...

I hope it's not your computer. I always live in fear of another computer crash!

Happy Birthday, David!

Lis said...

Hope the internet problems clear up soon :) And you get your car back soon and its nothing serious/expensive!

Sandy J said...

I hate internet problems!!! Next to car troubles.

Shirley said...

Hope the internet problems are soon sorted out. What a pain.
And I hope the car isn't too expensive.

Devon Ellington said...

Best wishes, dear; I hate internet problems.

Zinnia said...

LOL, will go check out the kitty link.

Zinnia said...

Uh-oh. That link isn't working. :-(

Siobhan said...

Not fair having problems at this time of year. TOO stressful so I'm hoping both car and computer are fixed soon. Re. the cats I loved the link. It's so true this year for me. Sophie is into everything and keeps knocking the miniature tree off the window ledge as she tried to "attack" the blinking lights. I'm about to banish her from the room. *gg*

Bailey Stewart said...

Well, it's still a pain, but I'm back.

I've smacked it, kicked it, threatened any future children, cursed it, hexed it, grounded it, and put it in time out; it's reasonably better.

It's just slowed down immensely. I can have a pedicure, manicure and a Brazilian wax before it opens a web page. The email is working fine.

Zinnia - I've fixed the link. I was able to do that earlier.

Tori - maybe that's the problem, I dropped off the cat instead of the car.:)

Still haven't heard anything about that.

Lexi said...

Good luck with the computer! I don't want to see your face on a wanted poster.

Stopping in to say "Hi"! Hope you are doing well and your internet problem goes away.
