Edge of Seventeen and I've been Kissed!

Just like the white winged dove
I've been listening to Edge of Seventeen ever since I woke up - I freakin love Stevie Nicks. OOO baby OOO baby OOOOOO. I'd blast it but my son is still asleep. I can't remember too many days this summer where I've seen him crawl out of his cave before 9am. Must be nice. He's got 3 1/2 weeks left and then it's back to school.

Kiss me baby one more time
Yesterday I received 5 luscious kisses from Two Lips Reviews for Egyptian Cotton
Reviewer Frost had this to say:
I can't praise Egyptian Cotton enough! The scenes between Seth and Amber were hot and the story unique and well developed. I loved it, and I will keep it to reread. It's truly that good. I chose this particular story simply because it was written by Ann Cory, and quickly received a very pleasant and energetic surprise. This is truly an ice bucket story: it's well written, volcanically erotic, and a pleasure to peruse. I highly recommend it.

I'll be stopping in CataNetwork-Readers in the early morning to do a quick hi-by, and then I'm headed to the coast for the day. My dad is giving us his big entertainment center and he needs help loading it onto his truck. Plus, we haven't been over there for a few weeks. The thing is huge and won't exactly match our family room - but I really don't care. It will still look nice in our place *BG*
Sunday we'll be out all day too, might take in a movie - not sure, we just plan to be out. No sleeping in for me.

Good or Bad?
Let's see, in other news, I'm not sure it's a good thing to be a multi-tasker. One would think it's a good trait and allows you to get a lot accomplished - but I beg to differ. I think it creates an even bigger work load. I'm not saying all this to get sympathy or anything, I'm just talking out loud.

Leaves me in stitches
We watched America's Sweethearts last night. I love that movie. Since we bought it about 6 months ago, I think we've watched it 10 times. It just makes me laugh and reminds me to laugh at myself when I take things too seriously.

Gotta love him
Sweetie bought me the wrong yogurt flavor and I don't have the heart to tell him otherwise.

Tug O War
My cat and I have a race in the morning to see who will get to sit on the blanket. I am more comfortable setting a blanket on my chair. It gives it more cushion for my bum. However, my cat tends to streak in here and stretch out on it before I get it there. One minute I'm getting things set up on my desk so I'm all ready to go, and the next minute I reach over to grab it and he's there, purring up a storm with a smug(but cute) look on his face. And don't say I should just move his butt off it either. He clearly runs this household.

Equal Opportunity:
So, other writing news: I'm working on 3 different stories at the same time, which again - that multi-tasking thing - not a good thing. One story is a paranormal, the second is a shape-shifter, and the third is a vampire story. Currently they all have about the same word count, so no story is getting special attention. The muse thinks she's cute doing this, but I don't have the energy to fight about it.

Parting is such sweet sorrow...
But I have to get some things done and the days fly by too fast as it is. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Bella Tyler said...

Great review, Ann. And your Butterly merch is so pretty. I love the coffee mug.

Y said...

You have a WONDERFUL weekend, okay?

Girl, you and your muse are amazing!

Oh, and I love Stevie Nicks too. She's very cool.

:)

Ann Cory said...

Hey miss Sara :) My output exhausts me. Trust me, I'll be forced to bedrest for years because of this while you'll be bopping around with tons of energy, lol

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Ann Cory said...

Hey Stacy - well, I'll tell you. I do what I love and love what I do, so I can't complain too much. Sometimes that real life stuff gets in the way, but I can always find a way to escape for a little while :)

And hey, you're the big party girl of the weekend!!!

Ann Cory said...

Awww, thank you Bella :) I love the Butterfly stuff too...I'm going to order 1 of each mug so I have plenty for hot cocoa and tea :) Gotta have my butterflies ;)

Ann Cory said...

Hey Y!!! My muse is a slave driver and we're not getting along right now. She's a diva and I'm the complete opposite. I want to be left alone and she wants all the attention. It's a good thing I don't have a split personality ;) LOL

You have a great weekend too! *hugs*

Tempest Knight said...

Oh I love Stevie Nicks too! Right now I'm blasting "I Can't Wait." I'm wearing my earphones so not to bother everyone else. *lol* Wow! Your muse sure knows how to crack the whip and make you work. *g*

Lyric said...

You are one busy lady, but I know you enjoy every minute of it.

Liddy Midnight said...

Okay, I'm torn. Hearing about your multitasking and your output exhausts me. I may have to go take a nap, even after sleeping almost 12 hours last night (I had a sinus headache and took an antihistamine, so I slept the sleep of the heavily medicated).

Either you're a total nut case or you're a complete genius. I haven't decided which. LOL

Happy writing! Keep pounding those keys! I expect you two finish two books this weekend. snork

Hugs,
Liddy

Ann Cory said...

Hey Tempest :) I dressed up as Stevie Nicks one year for Halloween and had a blast, lol. She seriously rocks!

Ann Cory said...

Yay, Lyric stopped by!!! For the most part I do love being productive. I'm not one to sit around and veg out - though I am envious of those who can. Somedays though I just wish I had a little bit more sleep ;)

Ann Cory said...

Liddy - I'm a complete nutcase. It's so true! Two books in one weekend? Dang girl, you are a total slave driver!!!

*shackling self to desk* lol
