No, I’m not dead, just dropped off the face of the blogging world. I have about 3.5 weeks before I leave the country. Ack! Panic, panic, panic. But I did take the time to head to New York City with my daughter to visit some friends. After some last-minute panic when the apartment I rented fell through, I found another one and the guys came to join me and we had a blast. Although I think we all still have recovering feet. New York is a walking city. Saturday night there was 14 of us at the apartment for dinner. It was so much fun and I loved seeing everyone again.
We also took the ferry to Staten Island, went to see Avenue Q, did some shopping and after the guys left my daughter and I went out to Coney Island. Busy, busy. We happened to show up on Pride Weekend so Sunday we attended the parade. It was looooong. 5 hours. Too long really and some parts were good, but it wasn’t as amazing as I’d hoped. Or maybe I’m just suffering from heat exhaustion and sun burned head.
So I formed a slide show of some pics from the parade. I really have to get motivated this weekend and get some more stuff packed up for charity and start my daughter on culling her room, although she has her wisdom teeth out on Monday so that will set her back. Take care everyone and hopefully after my move and getting settled in I will be able to get back to some regular bloggin.
Way back in March (I’ve not been here forever), I announced that someone was writing a story based on my prompt at the m/m GR group’s Love’s Landscapes event. Well, it’s up! I’m putting my prompt up again so you can see what it was all about. Click on the pic to get to the story (you have to be a member of the group to read it right now, it will be posted for download later). She did a great job on the character’s obsession with tattoos.
So I’ve been a super-bad blogger, and not in a hip way. So I thought I would ask some well-known authors in the m/m community what they are reading these days. (Not counting their own work as they edit.) This is the first five, more to follow.
Just click on any of the book covers to get to the publishers site if you want to pick it up.

KZ doesn’t have a profile pic so this is from her last blog post. :-P
And to be difficult (just kidding) she has been in a movie watching groove so this is one of the last movies she watched. Wow, Meryl is young there.
KZ has a new release coming this summer (no cover/link yet), called Resurrection Man. (I’m totally going straight to hell now for posting this picture. I’ll save you all a spot at the swim up lava bar.)

And we end today with a little boy/girl love. :-) Treva also doesn’t have a proper avatar on GR so I’m using this. :-P
The last book Treva read:
Treva’s next book isn’t out until summer and she has no link/cover yet, but it will be called The Superstar’s Nanny. In my world, this is what he looks like, or maybe this is the superstar. Either way, freaking adorable.
So come back next week and find out what some more authors are reading and their new/coming releases.
Have a great weekend.
Do you like gay porn? Or pretty boys wearing plaid? Then you should check out my new Tumblr, the Plorn Blog. (We’ll see how long I keep it up, but I decided to start it as an off-shoot of my other Tumblr, Cookie Time.) Word of warning: The Plorn Blog will have more graphic material than my other one as a rule. Here are some samples:
They might be sweet and conservative…
Or a little bit of a tease….
Maybe discrete and artsy with just a touch of plaid in the accessories…
Or much more explicit…
They might be in colour… (with or without a u)
Or maybe in black and white…
And from time to time, may look like this.
Enjoy, and happy first day of spring.
So a few of us were having lunch together yesterday and started chatting about my upcoming move to Kuwait and having to purchase a car there.
A: Are you going to buy a boat?
Me: What? Why?
A: Apparently lots of people buy boats there.
Me: Why? That’s weird. It’s not Venice.
A: No, apparently since gas is so cheap, people buy boats.
Me: That’s weird. *puzzled looks from the rest of us* I’m not buying a boat. My house is inland.
M: Are you going to buy a camel?
Me: Ha! My daughter said I should buy one and keep it in the back yard. That would be cool.
A: Wait a minute. You give me hell for suggesting a boat and you don’t even blink when he asks if you’re going to buy a camel?
Me: *shrug* A camel makes sense.
No, I’m not buying a camel, or a boat. A car yes. :-)
