The Goodbye Girl... But Only From Here!

Hey, Friends:
I'm working to consolidate some of my Net presence stuff, and I think it makes good sense to wrap this blog into my author blog. I promise to still offer the fun things you're seeing here, i.e. hunky guy pics, etc, but it just seems a whole lot easier to fold this blog on into my existing author blog at Deidre Knight. So, will be deleting this one in a few days, and this is your little warning. That makes it sound dire, and it's not. I also have started an egroup for discussion, and hope you'll join in the fun. Big hugs, and thanks for participating in this Parallel blog! D

Ten Things I Love About Heath

All right, so yeah, totally loving watching the fine young man in TEN THINGS. I thought it would be nice to post a wee tribute here on the beefcake blog. I'm sorry that I've left you all starving lately. lol. Life has been quite busy... most recently going to the fair last night. Yes, the fair. October in Madison, GA always brings the fair, and my daughters and I had a blast.

An Amazing Journey in Houston

I have had such a great conference here in Houston (Lone Star Conference.) First of all, what very sweet and talented writers are based here! I had a ton of pitch appointments today, and the level of talent was quite high. I've requested a number of projects, including completes of a few.

I'm also amazingly excited because my client Don Piper (author of 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN) lives here in Houston. Well, he was in Atlanta while I was in Houston (Grrr), but I just learned a while ago that he got back this afternoon and is speaking in the morning at a local church. So Julie Ramsey and I will have the opportunity to hear him speak--something I've never been able to do despite representing him for several years and being one of his biggest fans. After, we get to take him to lunch. Don will be on The Today Show in a few more weeks during a week about various faiths. Tomorrow's speaking engagement promises to be incredible.

Greetings from Houston. Just had to share! On top of that, we have had a wonderful rental car--a convertible VW bug! I've posted the picture.

What's the deal with "epic spam"? In other words, it tells some grandiose story? Is it to penetrate the spam filter and do devilish things later on? Is this the intent?

So, I've read this one to no less than three people, each of whom has stared at me like I'm nuts. It's just this: I can picture these people in Eastern European boiler rooms, doing lotto scams off one laptop, then crafting this strange, semi-literate prose on the other. Evil geniuses, the lot of them. See if you agree. This appeared in my mail box last week with the subject line of "Prince Ritually" (Sounds like an Ellora's Cave novel, right there.)

He sounds, said Sir Lawrence, the very man. I thinkits ridiculous his being married so young. Hes on a railway board; hes the figurehead of his countyscricket, and chairman of a big hospital. Hardly that, murmured Sir Lawrence; merely unusual, like mostmembers of really old families. Then, said Michael, with a sigh, theres nothing in this schemethat appeals to you, sir?

Were not going any way, said Fleur, theres only pace.
By the way, have you had your own kitchenelectrified?

And the poorer children are, the more they cling to their gutters,as I was telling you. Blakes New Jerusalem was, surely, based on Keating, and Keating was based on a sensitive skin.

But,you see, Ive tried Foggartism and everybodys too sane to look atit.
There must be direction, my child, underneath. The prevailing colour is that of the Ganges. CHAPTER VMEASLESThe diagnosis of Kits malady was soon verified, and Fleur wentinto purdah. The two Monts looked at each other; the excuse was patent, and theyhad not foreseen it. Ifthere is anything shorter than the publics memory, I am not awareof it. Well, you can take it from me that its nearly all heredity. The two Monts moved slowly towards Mount Street in the last of thetwilight. The butler came back, and, opening a door, said:In here, sir. For better or worse; but thats direction in itself

And, to Michael bending down to kiss her, sheinclined her cheek. We must strike while the strike is on, said the Marquess. Youre for it, as they say inthis Bonzoid age. Youcould fat a slum population, but you cant change their character! If he would give me the market price, whatever that maybe, it might solve the problem.
There was no otherreason why he should ask her.
Good-bye, dear Fleur; with all sympathy,Your affectionate friend,JON.
Dont wake him if hes asleep, said Sir Lawrence. Good-bye, dear Fleur; with all sympathy,Your affectionate friend,JON. Dwellon the slums, mention the names we hope to get, and leave the restto him.

Soames, who was notyet entirely resigned to a spiritual life, was genuinely glad tosee her. Its more like the East than anything else inLondon.
Besides, we dontreally like it in this country, Michael.

All right, if you made it this far, can we just say this--a spammer, tossing Keats and Blake. I say a frustrated intellectual reduced to Russian mafia online scammer. I can think as outlandishly as he/she can. :)
