Techno Slut

Hello my name is Allie and I am a gadget groupie. I love buttons, whistles and all things shiny. I own Ipods, Blu-Ray, Wii, Xm radio, GPS, digital cameras, laptop and everything else I can get my hands on. My next wish list item is the Ipad. Oh yummy and yay. I can't wait to get my fashionably manicured hands on that one. I watch movies on my Ipod touch right now and yes the screen is kind of small, so bigger is better. I guess I'm turning into an Apple whore. It started innocently enough with my first Ipod, the the Ipod touch. I moved into the big league with my MacBook Pro. Now I hear the siren's lure of the Ipad calling my name. Along with a list of accessories to buy as well. Nothing is the land of Apple is cheap, but at least the products are made to last unlike some other high tech items I could name.

For those of you not in the know, I'm finally back in Texas after an extended (almost six weeks) time away. Whew, I love to travel, but I hate packing. Of course I hate unpacking too. Guess there's no pleasing me :) It's good to be back, but I sure as heck didn't miss the humidity. It's like stepping into a pot of gumbo just walking out the backdoor. Getting into the pool doesn't help either. The water's so warm you might as well be taking a bath, all that's missing is a rubber duck and loofah sponge.

I was lucky enough to spend a few days with good friends Delilah Devlin and Shayla Kersten. BTW, I can be bribed to share their personal information :) We laughed, ate and drank plenty of bottled water from Mountain Valley Spring Water. This water is bottled straight at the source which is very important if you're water. The rest of the impostors are transported with tanker trucks to their bottling locations. Yep, I didn't know that much about water until I talked with Shayla. Now I know the difference  between good water and good water gone bad.

I had a lovely visit, slept in an amazing bed and didn't wake up scratching. Love at first snore. I'm planning a trip back up there so I can take in the hot springs and other natural beauty of the area. Plus, it doesn't hurt to have good friends to spend time with.

I'm staying put for the month of June. Whew! My butt is dragging and I owe editors completed books. Editors are scary people if you try and miss a deadline, something I make sure to never, ever do.

Speaking of deadline I've got three looming over me. I need to get busy, but can't seem to get into the writing rhythm again. Maybe I'm still tired from traveling all over the southeast part of the country? Then again it doesn't matter one way or another, deadline is deadline and I need to get busy.

Did I mention I sold another story to Ellora's Cave? It's called After The Music and I'll let you know release dates and all that when I do.

I'm walking away from the computer for a while. Maybe get my writing mojo back until then take it easy and stay cool.

Kudos,
Allie
