PIMPBOOKMAMA: hot! Hot! HOT!

PIMPBOOKMAMA here saying hoodies aren't just for fall season.
 They're absolutely fantabulous for stalker mode. Trust me. I've had many a stalkers when I invited these three hot women, M Pax, PK Hrezo, and Rachel Schieffelbein, to my pimp-pad. And we've been scoring each on their hoodie attire from creeper to date-able stalker.
But alas, we also gabbed about their books like crazy!
 

1. What dinner are we eating while you market your book to me?
M PAX: Stir fried eggplant and basil with mammoth chunks. How can we not try extinct meat frozen in a glacier for millennia? Who can say no to that?
PK: Lobster, lemon butter for dipping, baked sweet potatoes, and asparagus drizzled with a delicate cheese sauce. To drink, we have both white & red Bordeaux. And of course we'll be discussing Titanic & Woodstock.
RACHEL: Roasted zombie eyeballs (meatballs) and brain cupcakes.


2. I bought the book! Time to sign. But with what?
M PAX: A cat claw dipped in a solution of ground up lava and pine tar.
PK: I'll be using my special decoder pen that writes in invisible ink. Beneath my signature will be a secret code for you to decipher. Before I leave, I will gift you with instructions on where to buy your own decoder pen to view the invisible script now on your copy of my book. You will, in fact, have to travel overseas to obtain this decoder pen, so I will also gift you with a plane ticket and travel per diem. After all, that's how highly I treat my fans. *giggles*
RACHEL: The blackened blood of the last zombie I killed.

3. I just ooh-ed and aah-ed over your amaziness. How will you prevent MY stalking?
M PAX: I'll invite you to stay. My yowling cats won't let you sleep or think straight. You most likely won't accept another invitation.
PK: Your desire to stalk is of course understandable. Now that I've already sent you overseas on a decoder pen mission, I won't have to worry about that. Good luck getting back into the country, you wacko! LOL
RACHEL: I have a pet zombie chained in my yard. He pretty much keeps the crazies away. (But you, of course, are always welcome!)

FILL IN THE BLANKS - STORY TIME!

M PAX: Gayle went to the eye doctor in Richmond, VA during a sharknado. She was wise, but a bit too tasty. It wasn't till in a shark's belly she realized maybe it wasn't her, but time dust sprinkled on her by glittery aliens that made her this way. Glitter monster boys were quite intriguing in every sane woman's eyes, so why not her? No really. Why not her? Her only reason? All that glitters isn't love.

PK: Gayle went to Tammy's writer retreat resort in Richmond, VA during Tammy-fest. She was wise, but a bit smitten by Tammy. It wasn't till she met Tammy that she realized maybe it wasn't her, but Tammy's incredible talent that made her this way. Tammy was quite intriguing in every sane woman's eyes, so why not her? No really. Why not her? Her only reason? She could never live up to Tammy's greatness.

RACHEL: Gayle went to a shoe store in Richmond, VA during Black Friday. She was wise, but a bit bored. It wasn't till she went to try on a shoe that she realized maybe it wasn't her, but her mother that made her this way. Shoe shopping was quite intriguing in every sane woman's eyes, so why not her? No really. Why not her? Her only reason? When her mom turned into a zombie last spring, she ate both Gayle's feet.

IWSG: Permission

Recently I went to a training for managers at work.
The topic: Overcoming Mistakes.
What?? But I swear! I didn't make the mistake, YOU made the mistake...
by thinking I made the mistake.
See? It's all good now.
 
 
I'll admit, some trainings I feel I'm IN the Peanut cartoon literally listening to the teacher do it's "wah wah wah" sounds. Yeah. This one was up there. Till one thing hit:
 
 
PERMISSION!
 
I'm going to make this quick and pain "wah wah wah" free. In the writing or personal world we create, we hold a certain standard of ourselves and others. We generally won't admit them, but come on, it's there. But from now on, the change that will move you forward is the word: PERMISSION.
 
And not just giving, but ALLOWING yourself to ASK for permission. What?? Okay, here's what I mean. I want to write when the kids go to bed and the hubs watches TV, but I feel it'll take that special time we see each other for more than an hour away. I texted him how important my writing is to me and how I wanted that bit of time to write when I needed and asked for his support. And he of course said "I support you, honey!" Once I heard that green light, I was guilt free. I knew he was okay, and now I was okay.
 
Now to GIVE yourself permission looks more like this:
  • It's okay she's a size 2 because I won't break a bone when I fall in my size 10 pants.
  • Tonight I just want some SOA time, and I'll write another day.
  • This stress zit builds character, not awkward looks...staring right at it.
  • Who cares if I don't write daily. I'm my own writer at my own speed.
  • Yeah, I still don't get punctuation do's and don'ts but so what? I don't get paid to.

The best part of allowing and giving yourself permission in life, it's a relaxation technique freely available.
Allow and Give yourself permission to be you and to work more towards who you are and not who you want people to think you are, or who you admire. They're already taken. Always be your lovable self. That's what we grew to admire in the first place.
 
What's one thing you're going to give yourself permission on, or ask permission about?

IWSG: Cha-cha-cha-CHANGES...

alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com
 
AHHHH....yes.
Many people do it... they make change.
No, not breaking a $1 for some quarters... I mean life changes, dang it!!
Sorry. Blood pressure. Remember your blood pressure. (smoothes back hair)
 
Can you turn it to the 'blow my mind' setting?? 
As I was saying, some fab changes occurred in my world and I'm so thankful for them. Some very personal, some long overdue, and some right here on this blog. See? I'm now a Russian mafia girl in a shabby chic barn. But that's just my disguise in Hollywood, butch.
 
Some of the changes even caused stress triggers to go away.
Me?? Stress?? Blood pressure!! (sigh)
 
Just calling in my hourly calm down meds.
My most recent/favorite change happened between my writing bestie, Elizabeth Seckman, and I as we went over a few things for our collaboration. And BAM! it hit. A fresh spin on the plot. It was like Valley Girl OMG!! Best change LIKE EVA! And a change that makes me even more excited about our book.
How is this possible??
 
Here are 5 pics of CHA-CHA-CHA-CHANGES.
 Which do you think applies most to you lately, and why???
I want DETAILS PEOPLE!! (including your bank account/routing numbers.....)
