Another Friday night and I ain’t got no Blood Ties….

Now THERE’S a song I’d like to hear on the radio! Except for the “ain’t got no Blood Ties” part.

I hope we all have safe and happy New Year celebrations this week, and that all our New Year wishes come true. I’m betting I know what at least one of them is!

I’ve started a community on LiveJournal for the Blood Ties macros or, as I have recently decided to call them, Bat Macros.Β  I haven’t spiffed it up yet, but if you all would spread the word and post your macros I think it could be great! I’m already a member of the one for Doctor Who and the one for Robin Hood. I think we could be just as funny. And just as popular. You can join it here, provided you already have a LiveJournal account. (If you don’t, it’s easy enough to get one, and even the free ones are full of neat things to do. I made the community a Plus account which means there are ads but they’re not obtrusive and there’s more options available.)

Speaking of Bat Macros, I think I’ve used this one before. But it’s still funny.

  4. Danae, Thanks for sharing your family!!!! Wonderful pictures, very teary,
    special and heart warming to me!
    I sure hope that baby gets here soon.

    I remember going to the midwife with my Gusto and saying “Get it OUT!!!!!!”
    Boy when he decided it was time, ~ Well it was like the poem, The Turkey That Shot Out of the Oven by Jack Perlutsky (that quick & explosive) He’s still that kind of kid (14yrs. later)

    I’ll be thinking of you, your family and that baby!

    Rif – you around?
    He he he
    I started reading chapter 1 on the way home and found typos you missed πŸ˜›
    are you going to join us tonight? whos coming to the writers chat? anyone?

    see you later – off to check my email now…with going out to lunch I’m sure my email box is topped off at around a 100+ messages!

  7. rifkind said

    I was re-reading your chapters and sending notes as I went…
    I am heading home now, but will try to get to the writer’s chat later.
    πŸ™‚
    I LOVE your story! Kep on writing Girlfriend!

  8. lwildstar said

    wow I was right about the number of emails – plus there were several more from Rif with edits!
    so now I’m all caught up and I’m off to work on chapter 20…
    but I’ll be checking in…

  9. laurel said

    Aha! You were hiding from me! Somehow I missed the new thread for a little while and now I’m way behind on everything!
    I have a big family gather/Christmas tomorrow with Moonbeam. Maybe we can get someone to take a few pictures of us together. πŸ™‚

    lwildstar – I’m not sure how soon I can get the next set of edits to you. I have to make 6 dozen rolls and lots more cookies tonight.

    I still didn’t find a gift for Moonbeam’s oldest, whom I drew for Christmas. Yikes. He is really tough to find something for. I may have to make a run to the skateboard store in Eugene tomorrow when I get there. I always feel really old when I go in there. 😦

    I’ll try to look in on the chat tonight, but remind me not to let the rolls burn if you see me there!

    I’m going to be lazing around all weekend so I’ll probably be online a lot more than I have been. I’ll be doing some sewing but I think I’m mostly going to be reading and cocooning. Making CDs. Making some DVDs now that I’ve figured out how. Maybe even take a few naps….

  12. Claire said

    My ladies..stopping by to say hey! whew what a day!
    Danae..I loved all the pictures..I’m so bad I haven’t even posted my thanksgiving pictures..must do that!

    Well off to try and unload my camera and read some mail!

    love yas!

    Dinner took a lot longer than normal.

  17. laurel said

    See you all in a couple of days! I’m off on a road-trip in the AM!

    I’ll try to check in Sunday.

    Happy New Year everyone!

  18. Sure looks like everyone had fun at Thanksgiving,Claire! Loved the “Cave woman” pic. great shot :>)

  19. Margaret said

    Dylan Neal and Kellie Martin are on a movie called No Brother of Mine on the unmentionable network that Prtfvr and I hate so much. Started I think around 11:00 a.m., est. I wouldn’t be watching it but want to support Dylan. Another thing I plan to boycott will be Lifetime’s How to Look Good Naked. Are you with me ladies?

  20. lwildstar said

    Blood Ties (2006) 18450

    Mags – I havn’t watch the network we shall not name since Blood Ties went off.

    TTFN – I’m on the phone with my sister and I can’t concentrate…LOL!

  21. msgypsy said

    OMG! Claire, your family is just so gorgeous!

    I’m not sure I want to see any Dylan Neal movie on the unnamed network. He’s too good for them.

  22. msgypsy said

    Oh, Torchwood fans, here’s one of the Series 2 trailers, complete with assurance that it’ll be starting on BBC America on January 26.

  23. lwildstar said

    whoo-hoo! I finished chapter 20!
    Now I can work on the some edits.

    Laurel – hope you’re having a good time!

    Calire – hows Chris doing? your pictures were great – I chose 2 to put in my scrape book with your card.

    Dizey – hows Robbie doing? its been a while since we’ve talked.

    Madonna – feel better…

    MsG – I wish I could get BBC America – I watched Tourchwood last time I staye dover at my parents and I really liked it.

    I’m off for the night… HUGS to everyone – have a good weekend!

  24. Claire said

    Miggles…I’m right there with you! I think that How to look good naked show is the stupidest thing ever!! This is good t.v.? but Blood Ties isn’t? as my potty mouthed son would say”F*&k lifetime…the only way I would stoop to watching them ever again would be A..Blood Ties new episodes, B..A movie with Kyle in it.

    Thanks for the compliments about my pics! Christopher is good..the doctors appt this past Monday went well.The antibiotics worked and all swelling is gone.They did blood work and everything turned out ok. Just some weird infection.

    Well back to try and tackle all those emails!

    love yas!

  25. Linda said

    Just checking in to say a quick hello. I went to see the TransSiberian Orchestra tonight. It was spectacular, but the show ran a little long for me.

    Margaret — Count me in…am only too happy to boycott how to look good naked and most everything else on that unnamed network. Claire’s son says it best!

    MsG — I am looking forward to both Torchwood and Dr. Who in January.

    Y’all have good Sunday!

  26. DebS said

    Yay! My first visit to the blog in ages.

    Claire-Beautiful family. Your children are so gorgeous…the little ones are just adorable…and you look great too!! πŸ™‚

    MsG-I sooo wish I got BBC America. I love Torchwood and Captain Jack! I am hoping that it will make it to youtube or some other website, so I can watch it. How bad is that?

  27. lwildstar said

    Blood Ties (2006) 18735

    Hi Debs! so glad to have you back!

    just stopping in to see whats up…looks quiet today.
    Hey we still on for a party on Monday night – see you at the hen house!

  28. Claire said

    Afternoon Sistas!! It’s so cloudy and dreary here..my sinuses are killing me!
    had some weird dreams last night..about Henry…and some evil out to kill everyone vamps! Blood everywhere! but that could just be cause Josies driving me crazy…bleeding everywhere! you all know what a clean freak I am!
    Definitely have to get her fixed after this is over…the vet said it takes roughly around 21 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sheesh!

    That dream sure did make me miss our man!I think I’ll watch some old epis tonight.As for New Years eve..no plans here..so I’m in if we’re hanging.

    love yas!

  29. msgypsy said

    DebS, I watched Series One of Torchwood online and I’m sure Series Two will be just as surreptitiously uploaded, although it’s starting in the US so soon after it starts in the UK that I’m not sure it’ll be as easy to find it online. I can’t wait until the US DVDs come out. (I’m not as Captain Jack orientated, but I can admire him anyway, plus he obviously makes my man Ianto happy…) (I love Ianto as much for his name as for his adorableness. Yes, he’s young and not obviously my type but of all the folks in Torchwood he’s the one most likely to bring me breakfast in bed and that goes a long way with me!) (Okay, Gwen probably would, too, but she’s just not as domesticated as Ianto is…)

  30. DebS said

    I love Ianto as well! I just watched the Killing Suzie episode last night. “There are so many things you can do with a stopwatch.” HA!!!!! πŸ™‚ Ahh…I do miss that show.

  31. susana said

    Happy New Year ya’ll!

  32. laurel said

    I love the trailers for Torchwood. I also went and watched some of the other videos on yt about Torchwood and ended up watching one about the 15 hottest kisses of last season…. Yikes! My screen almost caught fire!
    lol – I have to admit I missed some of them during the season. I’m getting the dvds as soon as they come out. I’m saving my Borders gift card just for that. I hope there’s a good coupon that week.

  33. laurel said

    I’m just home for the night, but I’ll check in from my mom and dad’s tomorrow.

    Happy New Year!
    I hope 2008 will bring us some good news!

  34. himmiefan said

    Hello ladies. Just a quick drive by here. Hope all of you had a great Christmas.

    Deb, good to have you back here.

    Linda – I bet a TransSiberian show would be great!

    Well, that’s all I had to say. Off to bed, or well, off to get in bed and read until 2:00 am. Still three more days of vacation!!

  35. Anzia said

    Hey everyone. I hope your holidays were good. My parents were here and just left today so… stress level go DOOOOOWN! BUT BUT BUT BUT BUt BUT they got me a new cars stereo (complete w/speakers) for my car! IT HAS AN IPOD HOOK UP ON IT! *giggles uncontrobably* YAYAYAYAYAY!

    But, that aside… i have NOTHING to add to anything. *sigh* Isn’t that sad. I haven’t been around in almost a week and that’s all I can say about my life. Well, other than i’m officially unemployed now. My boss let me go home at noon on friday (and paid me for the rest of the day) ’cause i finished all my work. But, i’m back to panicing about everything… YEah… a highstrung (..okay MORE SO than usual) Anzia is not a pretty sight…

    Susana- I’m with you on the boob thing.

    NINA! I hope your holidays get better hon. I’m so sorry I wasn’t here to say hi or anything. 😦 I miss you horribly didi! I’m seriously on the verge of buying a phone card and calling you since we don’t seem to be able to talk in the ‘net anymore!!! MISS YOU!!!

  36. Linda said

    Himmiefan — Are you named for your love of himalayan cats? I have a silver persian. She is so spoiled she stinks.

    My fav episode of Torchwood is the one where the plane from the 40’s comes through the rift. I thought it was touching that cynical Owen fell so in love with the woman pilot.

    What time are ya’ll meeting at the hen house? I am having some friends over tomorrow night, but I don’t think they will stay too late.

  37. Margaret said

    Am I wrong or is Diz MIA again????

  38. lwildstar said

    Good morning!
    well I drag myself in to work – and our system is down – I can’t do anything!
    Hopefully it will be back up by lunch – they think…
    Now i dobt we’ll be able to leave at 3 becasue we’re going to be hours behind…just great…
    oh well.
    Hope everyone has a good day!

  39. lwildstar said

    well isn’t that a kick in the teeth – you know I complained about the letter I was sent saying “you are eligible for $0.00” incentive bonus”…well get this. I understood the letter to further state that if you didn’t get the incentive bonus you still got the one days pay…WRONG! appernetly if you got ANY incentive bonuses during the year – which I did mid year – you get nothing at the end of the year…they are doing away with bonuses for anyone other thatn unppe management……
    I just stired the pot and told my office manger how crappy I thought that was – they should have sent a letter explaining this better to those who were not elegible for anything – sheesh.
    OK back to work – although our system is still down and I really can’t do anything……

  40. lwildstar said

    Blood Ties (2006) 19045
    yes I am bored out of my mind!
    they let one girl go home already – geeze – I won’t get taht lucky – but I was told that I should be able to leave at 3…

    I guess I’m the only one around this morning 😦
    I’ll check back at lunch time….

  41. Annalaise duChat said

    Boooorredd! Isn’t anyone around? I have nothing to do here today and there’s not even anyone on the blog.I plan on leaving at lunchtime but I might not make it that long. **Yawn**

  42. Madonna said

    Hi guys!

    I’m not completely absent. I just can’t play. We’re on early deadline again so we can have tomorrow off. Busy, busy, busy……. I’d love to be bored right now.

    lwildstar,
    Thanks! I’m OK really. Just run down.

  43. lwildstar said

    well I’m around – sneeking over between doing nothing and trying to look like I’m doing something – I just found out we can’t leave till 3:30 – ah only 30 minutes longer thatn expected, but no ones happy. Besides our system still isn’t up so I can’t do much work anyway πŸ˜‰

  44. Danae said

    Buungiorno bellas!

    I am here Annalaise.

    We were supposed to get one hell of a snowstorm last night and it fizzled down to some flurries and sleet.

    I have made hemp jewelry in the past and got bored of doing them so I started making illusion necklaces and bracelets. I will take some pictures of them and post them. I am hoping to sell them at craft fairs and such.

    I have sent Diz and email. I will let you know if she gets back to me.

  45. Annalaise duChat said

    That sounds interesting Danae. What are illusion necklaces?

    Hi Madonna — I’d be on deadline now to but Ronnie (the editor of my inner city mag Horizon) has to prove to us every January that he really doesn’t need us so we don’t get to cocky. He uses his freelancers to do the January issue. So I have nothing to do. LOL.

    Hi Wildstar! Hows the book coming? Did I read somewhere 21 chapters? I better get on the ball you’ve passed me by! I was amazed, this morning I checked my blog stats and I had like 50 hits on my book yesterday. Nobody leaves me any messages (Except you Rif, Thanks!) so I don’t know who’s reading it. But if it’s you guys thanks!

  46. Danae said

    Hey Annalaise. Illusion jewelry is when use a string that is clear. Often times I can go to the fish store and get cheap fishing line and lots of it. I usually do three set of beads one in the center and two on each side. You space them so that it looks like they are suspended on nothing hence the illusion.

  47. Danae said

    Ok so I don’t mind it when someone comes to my desk to go through my papers. I often have orders or something that they need. What I hate is when they don’t put them back where I had them and the way I had them. Did you find them upside down and turned around? NOOOOOOOO! Why is it so hard to put it back the way you found it? Come on people! Would you like it if someone came to your desk and did that? I don’t think you would. GRRRRRRR! And while we are on the subject of papers on desks why am I being told that my desk is so messy and unorganized when other people around here are exclaiming over my boss’s desk being empty of lots and lots of paper. I swear you could hardly see his desk.

    Forgive me for this rant. You can go back to your regularly scheduled program now.

  48. Annalaise duChat said

    That sounds pretty cool. I can’t wait to see your pictures.

    Well I’m going to take off at noon but I’ll probably check in later and try to stop by the Hen House tonight at least long enough to say hi. I’m going to have some house guests so I won’t be able to linger too long though.

    But just in case — Happy New Year to all.

  49. Arrowyn said

    Well, I’ve just about given up the hope that I’ll ever catch up reading and responding on the blog. I haven’t really read it since before I left for Las Vegas on 12/12! So, that being said, I’m giving congratulations to all who deserve it, sympathy to all who need it, and (((((HUGS))))) to everyone, whether you need it or not. You know who you are!

  50. Danae said

    Happy New Year to you too! πŸ™‚

  51. Arrowyn said

    I know we have a lot of readers in our group, including me. I’ve included a newsletter from one of my local bookstores. Maybe you’ll find a new author. I know that I’m always on the lookout for new authors because my favorite authors don’t write nearly fast enough to satisfy my cravings.

    Although I’m not a big fan of cozy-type mysteries (there are some that I like), I know that some of you are. The newsletter mentions a new author from Canada, Kate Jacobs, and her first book, β€œThe Friday Night Knitting Club”.

    However, one of my favorite fantasy authors is Patricia Briggs. I’m impatiently waiting for the library to get her third book in the series about Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson (January 2008). If you like werewolves, shape-shifters, vampires, etc., then I recommend that series. “Shape-shifter Mercy Thompson has a complex life, juggling two werewolf lovers and a job working for a fae mechanic.” She has written other series, but I haven’t read them yet.

    There are some other books listed that aren’t my cup of tea, but you might like them.

    Since it’s a long URL, maybe you should copy and paste it?

  52. lwildstar said

    Yep Annalaisa chapter 21!
    whoo hoo!

    Dani – the illusion necklaces soud cool.

    You know I’ve been thinking on this for a while – we have soooo many crafty talent sisters – well I’ve been thinking of trying to figure out how to set up some sort of co-op website for us to sell our things on/trough – whatever…one we “run” ourselves…..or maybe “hire” a site master?
    anyway – just throwing that out there to think on.

    well its lunch time and they STILL don’t have the system up…..thi has really been a drag of a day.
    I’ve finished all my “busy” work so now I have no idea how I’m going to spend the rest of the afternoon if they don’t get on the ball….I’d write – but I might get caught 😦

    I know what you mean Dani – about peopel taking stuff from you desk or looking throu your papers – at least put it back where you got it! (or in my case just bring it back) and you’re right – why put something back upside down – was it that way when you picked up? doubtfull….

    grrrrrrr….

  53. Arrowyn said

    The Christina Cox Fan Appreciation Page says that Christina has an upcoming TV appearance on Tuesday, January 8, at 9:00PM ( eastern) on the TNT channel of an episode of “COLD CASE” titled “SHERRY DARLIN”. The post says that “This is a ‘hard to find’ episode, because the COLD CASE episodes are NOT out on dvd yet.”

  54. Danae said

    Hey wildstar that is a great idea for the selling of craft items. I also like to dabble in drawing and that might be something else I can do. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help get anything set up.

  55. Danae said

    I have been thinking for awhile of a way to make a second income be it very small and it will probably amount to nothing and just be for the joy of doing it.

  56. lwildstar said

    I know what you mean Dani – long ago I actually made money with the jewelry, but even though the buisness is practically dead – I’m still making it, becasue I just like to creat things.

    Robin said there is a local non-profit organization around her that she works with that is made up of women just entering the buisness of setting up websites. They will do most of the work for free (you just have to pay the registration and hosting fees). they are trying to build their book of references.
    Anyway I’m going to see if Robin can arrange a meeting with someone from this group and see what they think….I’ll get back to you.

    I think this would be a really good thing to consider doing – so I think at somepoint I’ll “schedule” a chat with any interested parties…just send me an email if you think that this is something you would consider pursuing – no wait…I’ll send an email out and then you can respond e to that – that way it will have the same subject line….

  57. lwildstar said

    well I’m oput – I was suposed to back from lunch oooh about 20 minutes agao πŸ˜‰

  58. Danae said

    Okey Dokey. I will look for it.

  59. laurel said

    I’m just about to go on today’s road trip – Four hours to my parents’ place. Unfortunately I am really feeling bad and am having the same pain that put me in the hospital in July.
    I could use some good thought/prayers to get me there, because I’m pretty nauseated as well.
    I’m feeling a little better than when I first woke up so we’re going to go ahead and go.

    Thank you dears. Your support means so much to me.

    I’ll check in when I get there and I’ll try to join you on the chat for a while, too.

  60. Danae said

    Good luck Laurel. I hope it isn’t as bad as what happened in July. Prayers to you.

  61. laurel said

    Has anyone seen Himmifan? I’ve been looking for her for a while on here and in the e-mails and I’m getting a little worried.

    Himmie? You okay out there?

  62. Danae said

    Question: Is champagne considered sparkling wine?

  63. laurel said

    Thanks Danae. I’m pretty nervous about leaving town when I feel like this, but I’m missing my family and this is the only chance I’ll have to see them for a couple of months.
    The pain has backed off a little thanks to strong meds, but I’m almost out of meds and this is not a good time to try to get a re-fill on a narcotic. My personal physician is out of town with his family and the rest of his partners don’t know me well enough to be comfortable with giving me anything that strong without having my chart in hand.
    Oh, well. I do understand. There are so many people that call my Hubby in the middle of the night seeking narcotic prescriptions and I know how hard it is on him to wonder if they really need help or if they’re just abusing the system.

  64. laurel said

    I think champagne and sparkling wine are the same thing. You can only call it champagne if it comes from the specific “champagne” region of france.

  65. Danae said

    That is what I thought. There has been a debate on that all day. I get to go put someone in there place now. Thanks

  66. laurel said

    Oh, oh. My ride is back with the car gassed up, so I’ve got to go!
    See you later!
    Thanks for keeping me company while I waited.

  67. Danae said

    No prob. Stay safe.

  68. Claire said

    Afternoon ladies! Where is Diz these days? I hope she’s M.I.A. cause she fell madly in love and is too busy ——–her head off to come socialize with us!
    I’ll be in and out all day…nothing doing here…just laundry.Iwildstar…I love your idea…I seriously need to make extra money and I also love making my jewelry!
    I’ve made quite a few earrings and have gotten a lot of compliments,I really would like to try and make this a business,let me know,because I was thinking of checking out etseys,but I would much rather the idea of us all doing something together.
    Argh…I am feeling really lonely…does that make sense?with all the people around me? I really have no life! I just realized I haven’t left my house in over a week…the only place I go is to walk the dog! Man I wish you guys were nearby.
    Anyway..Laurel…safe trip..I’m off to do laundry.
    love yas

  69. lwildstar said

    My sister says Estyes is a really good site – but I haven’t checked it out yet.
    this may take a while to set up – so i would suggest trying a few other avenues out in the mean time.
    If things go the way I think – I down to three craftshows for the year – and Ihave to find a way to get rid of some stuff – and ebays just not doing it.
    I thought the co-op idea was good becasue we would be sharing any costs across the board and we can custimize the site to our needs – we have jewelers, quilters, artist and who knows what else.
    i have some notes at home that I’ll email out tonight.
    TTFN!

    Hi….

    Laurel, do they know what is causing you to have so much pain? Hope you are feeling better and have a safe trip.

    BTW….. Himmie posted on the Secret Santa thread just yesterday.

    lwildstar,
    A site like that might be interesting. I would have to have some conversations about it with my business partners first. (Mom and Dad)

    Claire,
    I understand what you are saying. Makes sense to me.

    Cree,
    Have you heard anything official regarding the Chief of Staff position yet?

    ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

    Don’t know if this is official or anything or whether it is good news or bad news for us but Lifetime’s homepage has story abot the best and worst in entertainment in 2007. Anyway…… They’re reporting that Moonlight has been cancelled. I don’t watch it so I don’t care all that much, but it’s the first I’ve heard of it.

    A post on Bloodlines reminded me that this site has some wonderful promotional pictures! These are professionally done, so they don’t get blurry when you enlarge them. Yippee! Also, they’re in Flash, so you can’t just right-click and save.

    To save, hold the keyboard key that has the pic of Microsoft’s flying window while you press the “print screen” key. Then paste into some picture editing software that has a “crop” feature. Crop the picture and save.

    Use this method, too, on those yummy promotional pictures in the Bloodtiestv.com gallary. Enjoy!

  74. Arrowyn said

    Forgot to say that that saving method if for PC users. I got it originally from a post on Bloodlines and the guy also gave the Mac method. If anybody wants, I can find the post for you. Let me know.

  75. Arrowyn said

    Typing too fast — that should have been “method IS for PC users”.

    I’m not usually a big fan of fanart that are drawings, but this one is something special!

  77. lwildstar said

    well I made it home!
    around 2 the office manager said I could leave since the system still wasn’t up – but I had one of “those feelings” that I should stay – so I said I would wait and see if the system came up in the next half hour..anyway, it didn’t so I went to talk to the office manager and see what she wanted to do – she told me to leave, but I still had that feeling – good thing I stay…just as I was leaving her office the phone rang – the client was yelling that he never recieved his binding order so had no proof he had insurance – I went straight to my desk pulle dup the FedEx email saying it was delivered and forwarded it to the office manager – ha! had been delivered to the receptionist and 9am this morning :P…then he starts yeolling that this really important document never showed up and with out it he would have to pull all his trucks off the road tonight – we didn’t process this document – the insurance carrier did – so we called them…you know they could could us the tracking number and tell us it was delivered, but no one could tell us the address it was sent to. I just rolled my eyes took the paper with the tracking number on it and called FedEx – duh – the girl was so nice…I said ok I’m not the sender and I’m not the recipient we had something sent froma secondary office could you please tell me where they sent the document? oh no problem – boom had the address and the name of the person who signed for it! now why couldn’t the sender do that?
    Any way by then it was 3:15 and the office manager said to leave before something else happened – you know this may be spitefull but the whole way back to my desk I’m think – yeah I save your bacon – you got a bonus and I got bupkis!…grrrrr

    Anyway I was sitting waiting for the train and started jotting down some notes for chapter 21 – I think I wrote two pages! I’m not sure becasue the little notebook is only a 2 x flip book – so now I’m off to get them typed up.

    When are we meeing at the hen house? I want to take a nap so I can stay up?

  78. Claire said

    Thanks for understanding Madonna! I really think Nikki is right and I need to see a doctor…about this depression..always trying to creep in..or maybe I’m just lonely..who knows!

    Arrowyn…that was a nice drawing by Kady…but I have to be loyal to my adopted daughter Madonna..she drew one hell of a portrait for my girls of Henry! I wish she would draw a larger one for all of us! Ya hear me? Madonna?

  79. lwildstar said

    my dear Claire – my sister has been fighting depression all year..shes even lost like 60 pounds becasue she doesn’t eat – the meds helped some – once they found the right combination – but once I talked her into finding a support person she has started to do better – she’s also changed her diet and is suposed to get out of the house for at least an hour a day – even if its just to walk the dogs, she said that has helped with the constant aches shes been feeling….
    That lonley feeling is the worst….So just remember we are here for you and I think quite a few of us have been through some form of depression – I know I have – and know where your coming from bella…so never fear you are never going to be alone.

  80. lwildstar said

    and on that note – I am going to go find something for dinner, take a nap and then I’ll be back!

  81. himmiefan said

    Laurel – I’m here, I’m here!! I posted in the Secret Santa thread about your great gifts!! Thank you Secret Santa!!! πŸ™‚

    Prayers for you also. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

    Linda – Yep, I’m named after my himalayan cat Matilda. Actually, it’s Matilda McMeow, but she also comes to Pookie and all the other obnoxious, silly names.

    I’m glad you picked up on the himalayan part. Many people thought I was referring to the himmie engine. I think that has something to do with cars.

    I’ve had Persians my whole life. They’re great cats! What’s your cat’s name?

  82. Margaret said

    Claire: Being depressed and lonely is kind of like a circle. You could have both and one could be making the other worse. I found I get more depressed this time of the year and I even get a bit lonely. The depression comes from an ex who exited from this world at my house. But keep in mind, hopefully this might make you feel better, shrinks have the highest suicide rate this time of year so they don’t have all the answers either. I decided I could afford being crazy so I went to the bookstore after they told me how many visits I’d need at how much per visit. I’m fine now, Moooohaaaaa. lol.

  83. Cree said

    Madonna, no official word yet. They told me I would know for sure by the end of the year. Well, it doesn’t get any more end of the year than this. I have a feeling I will know by next week or so. There is a year end bonus for all COS doctors and I think they are holding off on telling me so they don’t have to pay out that bonus to me this year. It really sucks, but there really is nothing I can do about it other than wait. If I don’t hear anything by the end of this week, I am going to email then again about it. I emailed them a few weeks ago wanting an update and they said all their computers had been down and all COS candidates applications were put on hold until the problem was fixed. I have a hard time believing it takes that long to fix a computer! I’ll keep y’all informed though.

    Happy New Year to all my lovely blog sisters! It has been a great year getting to know each and every one of you. You were all much needed in my life and I am so thankful that we all found each other. Here’s to a great 2008 with even closer friendships and many, many more episodes of our beloved Blood Ties!

  84. lwildstar said

    I’m baaaack!
    my nap didn’t last long…my neice and nephew called – I almost hung up because all I heard was screaming – had no idea what they were saying at first and then figured out it was “HAPPY NEW YEAR!”

    so are we still meeting at the hen house – no one has said what time?

    well I’m off to check emails – I’ll be back….

  85. laurel said

    I am at my folk’s and just realized I don’t have the connection to the hen house. Could someone e-mail me the connection, please.
    See ya’ there.

  86. Linda said

    Himmefan — Himmie engine, LOL! I never even thought of that. My cat’s name is Isabel. I got her when she was about three years old. She is now probably eleven. I like the name Matlida McMeow. Izzy rarely comes when called. She knows her name, but like most cats, she takes a message and gets back to me. Unless, I have chicken…

  87. lwildstar said

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!
    I love you all…my new years wish is for another year of Blood Ties and the continuation of our sister hood!

  88. Margaret said

    Let me tag my wishes to Lwildstars. Last year was made richer by knowing each and every one on you. We’ve all laughed and cried with each other over the year, hopefully this coming year will bring more laughter than tears for all of us.

    Here’s a toast to wishful thinking and hoping that we hear from the ASSHATS at that unnamed network that they have come to their senses and picked up our show. Another toast to going on Weight Watchers for the three thousandth time and hoping it actually works this time. lol. After all I need to lose 100 lbs by March, somehow I don’t think I’ll make that goal. lol. But hey, I’ll still have the friends I made here.

  89. Linda said

    I want to say Happy New Year too. Many thanks for accepting me into your blog family. It has been a privilege getting to know y’all. I wish for everyone a spectacular 2008, which of course, includes more Blood Ties. We deserve it!

    Cheers!

  90. Madonna said

    CHEERS MY SISTERS!!!!!!!! Happy 2008!!!

    For Cree, (because her computer is sick) CHEERS!!!!

    May this year bring us all peace, health, sisterhood and love and may 2008 bring us wonderful memories AND MORE BLOOD TIES. My 2007 was amazing because of all of you. You all know that don’t you?

    ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

    Claire,
    Hang in there!!!!!
    P.S. I’ll try to work on that drawing ok.

    Good morning all,

    I hope everyone has a lovely day. I am off to watch Arkansas play in the Cotton Bowl with family and friends. I don’t understand why this game was scheduled so early!

    Go Hogs!

  96. Chery said

    Heres to you all. I am wishing everyone a healthy, happy, and on a hopeful note, the renewal of our beloved show!

    I could not have spent a more lovely past year with anyone better than the wonderful women on this list.

    Thanks for all the positive and great wishes for the new year!
    I am watching a BT marathon today………….

    BTW has that newtwork noticed that the most popular moneymakers this holiday season has been the Golden Compass, (fabulous, go see it if you have not already) and the I am Legend Will Smith movie about Vampires!
    Fantasy and vampire themed shows are becoming the popular MAINSTREAM!
    We should be the program directors of the Asshat network.

  97. Anzia said

    Not a bad idea Chery! Himmie! I think we just found the next adventure for the Order Of The Yum! We must save the world as we know it from The Asshat Network (TAN for short). ^_^ They’ve all become zombie thingers by Astroth. He’s trying to get his legions of demonic minions spread far enough around the world that he has little work to do when he comes over.

    Or something like that…

  98. DebS said

    Happy New Year!!!!!

    My dad is here visiting in South Carolina. We drove back yesterday, and I showed him around campus and town today.

    Hope everyone has a great first day of 2008!

  99. lwildstar said

    howdey!
    sorry I’ve been MIA today – but dad came over to do some electrical work – hence no computer – no powere – for a couple of hours. Then I got into writing – I finished chapter 21!
    I can’t believe it!

    heres another voting site – Blood Ties has over 5000 votes to stay on the air!
    http://www.savemyshow.com/shows/bloodties.htm

  103. lwildstar said

    Hugs to you Claire – I hope your feeling better!
    Missed you last night!

  104. lwildstar said

    oh forgot to mention the voting site I listed above – you don’t have to wait between votes – I voted 10 times in a row…after you vote and it takes you to the totals page – click the link that takes you back to the main menu, click the others tab and scroll down til you find Lifetime and BLood Ties – then vote again….

  105. Claire said

    I missed you Iwildstar!! I missed everyone at the coop wah!!!!!!
    but Chris was home and wanted to hang…I went to the henhouse at 1:30 but everyone was gone!!!

    Anyway..I really need a hot shower..my back hurts from all the lifting and cleaning I did today!

    I’ll try to get on again in a bit!

  106. himmiefan said

    Linda – I love it! She takes a message and gets back to you. Typical cat….

    Ms. Z – Great idea! TAN – the wheels are turning in my little, evil mind….

    Happy New Year to a great group of women!!!

  107. Linda said

    Well, the Arkansas game was not worth watching…unless you were a Mizzou fan. Then it was great!

    I went to see a movie today called Sleuth with Michael Caine and Jude Law. I kept imagining Kyle in the Jude Law role. A part like that would give him a chance to really chew some scenery.

    I am off to vote at save my show…

  108. I went to that site and put in my vote to save the show too. Gave it 6 times ~ I wonder if it only counts the computer that it comes from once, like clicking on the hungersite or breast cancer site does. . . .

    Quiet day around here. . . My 17yr old hiked the butte w/ a female-type (took an extreme amt. of restraint on my part to keep from going the 20??? routine when I played taxi~) It’s pretty rare that he has any girlfriends that we’d get the privilege to know about ~ He’s a looker so I’m sure there are plenty of girls out there drooling over him :>) Anyhow, she seemed sweet.

  109. laurel said

    Wow! A real girl! Did he speak more than 4 words to her?

  110. laurel said

    Moonbeam’s son (my nephew) has the most beautiful blue eyes! He is a handsome boy and a truly delightful person. Not that I’m biased, mind you.

    Hi sis!

  111. Linda said

    I just voted several times at Save my show, and I noticed that there are 6 votes from people who want to see it cancelled. Why on earth would one go to the trouble of voting to cancel a show?!? If I don’t like a show, I simply don’t watch it. I would not want to spoil things for viewers who do like the show. Had to rant for a minute…

    Looking at the voting for save my show made me think of this… I read something a month or two ago on E Online regarding Side Order of Life. Someone asked Kristen (Watch with Kristen) in a chat if it would be renewed. (Just as an aside, I have emailed Kristen two or three times about Blood Ties and got no response.) Anyway, she contacted TAN (like that name!) and they told her no decision had been made about that show either. For what it’s worth…

  112. Girl’s name is Anna and he didn’t speak 4 words in the car while I was taking her home ~ way out in the boondocks~ but he did walk her to the door~ maybe for a short peck? Sure wasn’t gone long enough for anything more than that. hee, hee

  113. Linda, I thought the same thing about the six people that voted to cancel the show! Why bother to even state it!

  114. Claire said

    Hey my ladies…Hot shower felt great! I have a changeable massage handheld shower,felt great on the sore back…and Nikki got me this cute purple light up massager from target quad something..it’s got these four round legs that vibrate..right on my back!

    Anzia..dear love the name for the hateful network!!
    Anyway..back to normal life..work in the morning argh! no more sleeping in!!!
    So…bonne nuit! sweet dreams! you all know I have them..with my honeys face on my pillowcases! love ya Chelli!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    love yas!

  115. Ooh, we are going to be hearing and dreaming about those pillowcases forever! Sweet dreams Claire!

  116. Vicki said

    Linda…
    I emailed her (Kirsten) several times too..No response…she is so good about getting shows that have a good fan based saved… I am surprised at the non response… anyway…

    Claire..go to bed!! you are making me tired just reading about your day!! LOL

    I am headed that way myself..I didnt get the tree down because I was grading papers…I will try to do that tomorrow..or just wait for the weekend..

    Night all

  117. Linda said

    Vicki…
    I was surprised too. She liked and wrote extensively about other vampire shows like Buffy and Angel. She also keeps up with Supernatural. Go figure…

  118. lwildstar said

    good morning!
    well can you beleive it – our system is STILL OUT – I can’t do any work AUG!

    yes the Save my show counts every vote even if its 12 in a row from the same computer – I voted 12 times total yesturday. and 8 times on the other site – couldn’t get into H!N – sometime it locks me out – but I see on LT message board that all thenumbers ae dropping.

    Well I’m ging tosee what trouble I can get into while I wait for the system to come back up πŸ™‚
    talk to you later!

  119. lwildstar said

    Just popped over to the new KK forum – Ann that picture of Kyle – I do NOT have a My Space – is so cute!

  120. rifkind said

    For those of you who are Star Trek fans.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0796366/

    It is exciting to see that J.J. Abrams is directing!

  121. DebS said

    Good morning all!

    I am back for my first official work day of the new year. Apparently, this isn’t a “real” work day. The college is still closed so we could choose to not come in. All very confusing. I figure since I am taking tomorrow and friday off I might as well get some work done while there are no distractions. πŸ™‚

    rifkind-Yay for the new Star Trek movie! Although I am not a true Trekkie or anything, I do enjoy the franchise. I am excited that J.J. Abrams is directing and that Zachary Quinto is starring as Spock. Great casting if you ask me!

  122. DebS said

    I know this has been discussed a thousand times on the blog, but I never paid attention before, cause…well….I don’t know why. How do you all get the icons to the left of your name?

  123. rifkind said

    DebS
    I found a nice picture at IMDb of Zachary with Leonard Nimoy

    http://www.imdb.com/gallery/scrapbook/174/IMG_0354.jpg.html?path=pgallery&path_key=Quinto%2C%20Zachary&seq=32

    I have also written several pages on my blog page about how to add an Avatar to your WordPress account
    http://rifkind.wordpress.com/creating-the-avatar-2/
    Once you have added the image to your account, you will have to be LOGGED-IN to WordPress before making any comments .. then the avatar will show up. Let me know if you have any questions.
    Rifkind

  124. DebS said

    Thanks Rifkind! I believe the issue is that I do not have a wordpress account. I am going to get on that right away.

    That is a great picture. They do have some similarities, don’t they. I recently read an interview by Zachary, but I can’t remember where. It was a good one, if I find it again I will let you know.

  125. rifkind said

    DebS,
    You don’t have to have a blog with WordPress, just an account.
    I would love to read the interview.
    I have just got the Heroes DVD set for Christmas, and am getting to see his work.. I had never seen Heroesw before. It will be nice to see him as Spock.

  126. Annalaise duChat said

    I’m sorry Rif, Leonard Nimoy just cannot be replaced as Mr. Spock. He IS Spock. Just as Bill Shatner Is Captain Kirk and Deforest Kelley is Dr. McCoy. If they wanted to continue the series they should just write new characters as the did in Next Generation and Voyager. I for one will never buy into new actors playing the roles.

    and yes, I’ve been a Trekkie since the original series aired.

  127. Claire said

    Bon Matin mes amis!

    Ahhh….hear that? Silence! LOL!! Love love the quads…but I’m so happy they’re back at school lol!!!
    Vicki…did you have a good time on your trip?
    Moonbeam..lol you got that right! love them pillows!

    Anyway…have a bunch of phone calls to make and emails to send out regarding this house issue..so be back later!

    love yas!

  128. dlynn934 said

    Ah…I sort of got a blog….didn’t see that you had the option of a user account only. Oops…well I am always saying I need stretch myself a little and try new things. I guess having a blog might be the next thing. Although, I don’t know that I have anything interesting to say.hehe. Now, I just have to figure out how to get my name changed back to DebS…apparently someone already used that name. Its mine I tell ya!

    I will look for that Zachary Quinto article. He is so deliciously evil in Hereos!

  129. DebS said

    Okay, let’s see if I am me again and if I have a little icon thingy.

  130. DebS said

    hhhmmm…I am me again, but I am don’t have an icon. Well, it did say it might take awhile. Ah well….back to avoiding work today πŸ™‚

  131. Danae said

    Buongiorno bellas. You all need to join Kyles Korner at Anne’s site. It seems really fun.

    DebS It took awhile for everyone else to get it to work right. Don’t worry you’re not alone.

    Happy New Years my sistas. As I have said before this is going to be a great year and don’t you doubt it.

    I guess I’ll have to go make up somemore – or just do what I did Monday and start writting – started chapter 22 this morning……
    Rif – before you start nagging πŸ™‚ he he he – Its all laurels fault chapter 9 is not posted yet – she decided to have a fun filled holiday with family and friends rather than working! Bad Girl!
    Just Kidding!
    I’ll get 9 posted as soon as possible……I can always repost after the edits are done.

    Lets see…since I’m wasting time here……hummmmmm….
    I could read Dr. DuChats Keiron adventures today if the system never comes back up – I’ve realy fallen behind on that – I loved the chat the other night BTW.

    I’d go watch Blood ties on LT – but everythime I do that – I get caught so maybe thats not a good idea….

    Well lunch is in an hour so I guess I’ll come back then…

    Debs – it took most of us several tries to get the avatar working – one thing I found, espesially if I change the picture – is that it wouldn’t show up until after I had cleared the cookies , logged out, and logeged back in….

    Hey ladies There someone named Kady at Anne’s new forum that is asking about us. Do you remember if she was with the DP? I told her I would give her the link if it was ok with you guys.

  139. Danae said

    I don’t know any of them either.

  140. DebS said

    Off to lunch!

  141. Danae said

    Here is the link to the pictures I took of the necklaces I made.

  142. Danae said

    Eat well Deb

  143. lwildstar said

    I think Kady is the person who did those wonderful pictures that Arrowyn sent us before Christmas – and she did that wonderful scetch of Kyle – that Arrowyn emailed us. in one of those emailes was her website address I think – I’ll look now thats its lunch time.

  144. Danae said

    She is the one that did the sketch of Kyle. I know that. I just wanted to make sure it was safe to invite her here. Past experiences have smartened me up.

  145. lwildstar said

    found her website address – her email is listed at the bottom of the pages
    http://www.knightwatchman.net/index.htm

  146. Danae said

    Ok thanks

  147. lwildstar said

    well I’m going to go work on some writting.
    the system just came back up so after lunch I will have to do some work 😦
    oh well I had fun this morning pretending to work!
    I’ll check back before lunch is over.

  148. lwildstar said

    wow its quiet today…..

  149. Danae said

    I think everyone is still coming down from the holidays. I talked to Dizey on Monday night. She is doing fine. She is still having home computer issues and has a hard time coming on at work. She says hi to everyone and will try to get on soon.

  150. lwildstar said

    thanks Dani for the Diz update…..was starting to wonder if she ran away…..

  151. Danae said

    Nope she is still alive and well and not running.

  152. lwildstar said

    Good.

    well lunch is over so I need to scaddle – I ordered pieces parts to make valentines cards….he he he…lets see what I can start…..

  153. Danae said

    I have to get on that. Considering I really can’t stand Valentines Day I am willing to put aside my dislike of it for my sistas.

  154. lwildstar said

    and we appreciate the sacrifice!

    ok – now I really must go……

  155. DebS said

    I am not a big fan of Valentine’s Day either…I don’t really have feelings either way actually. But I am excited to send cards to everyone. πŸ™‚

  156. henrysmine said

    Hi everyone! Kady here. Thanks for letting me join you. I’ll probably lurk for the most part, but I appreciate you letting me hang out with you.

  157. henrysmine said

    Hi everyone! Kady here. Thanks for letting me join you. I’ll probably lurk for the most part, but I appreciate you letting me hang out with you.

  158. Danae said

    I know if I weren’t so unhappily unattached I would think differently about it.

  159. Danae said

    Hey Kady. Welcome to The Bloody Ford

  160. elizabeth said

    Hello ladies, I missed all of you over the holidays. I hope everyone had a wonderful time? I am so far behind on the emails that I am not even going to attempt to catch up. I have skimmed the blog, but wouldn’t say I absorbed all that much.

    So, here’s a question for you – who was my secret Santa? There was no identification that I could find and *hanging head in embarrassment* I didn’t think to check the box for the return address before I recycled it. I want to be able to properly thank you for my presents.

  161. Danae said

    Hey E How were your holidays? It wasn’t me. Go to this thread to see everyone’s (so far) Secret Santa gifts and who their Secret Santas were.

    https://msgypsy.wordpress.com/2007/12/25/secret-santa-thread/

  162. DebS said

    Hey Kady! Welcome. You got a double post on your first try. Very impressive. πŸ™‚

  163. Danae said

    LOL!

  164. elizabeth said

    Hi Danae! I checked out the Secret Santa site already, but that is mostly everyone talking about what they received from their Secret Santa and since I don’t know who mine was I can’t thank them personally.

    All I can say, my friend, is I am glad that 2007 came to an end and 2008 is absolutely going to be better! Even the holidays that I usually totally enjoy were moments of bliss wedged between hours of misery.

  165. Claire said

    Hi my sistas! I feel another addiction coming on LOL!!! I love what Anne did!!!!
    Danae your necklace is beautiful! Thanks for the info on Diz! Kadys cool..she has alot of artwork and icons and things over at Bloodlines…I think..I know I have alot of her stuff.
    Hey E! Happy New Year!
    Hey Kady! Welcome..umm your name..Henrysmine…rule #1 here at the Bloody Ford Clinic…Sharsies!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!

    Argh, on the Valentines here too!! but I’ll put that aside for my Sistas!

  166. Danae said

    I totally believe that this year is going to be bangarang. I wasn’t sure if you had seen that yet.

  167. DebS said

    So, my picture still isn’t showing up…any suggestions as to things I can do to make it show up. I don’t think yelling at the picture will help any…although it might make me feel better…hehe

  168. Danae said

    the Secret Santa thread that is.

  169. Danae said

    You did upload a picture from your computer correct. Maybe it didn’t take. Check it and maybe try again.

  170. Madonna said

    Hi ladies!!!!

    I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve and Day. Mine was pretty calm. Cree can attest to that. She and I were talking on the phone.

    Well girls, ALL I want to do for the past two or three weeks is sleep. I can’t get enough of it. I don’t want to watch TV or read or even blog so much as I usually do. I just want to sleep.

    Speaking of TV….. My mom and I finally saw the last two episodes of BT on Sunday. I didn’t cry or anything but the SIMPLY CAN NOT leave us like that.

    The weather people around here were calling for flurries overnight. Well we all woke up to about 1 1/2 – 3 inches of flurries this morning. Boy were they off. And its only 12 degrees here.

    Danae,
    It’s good to hear that Dizey is OK. Can you email me her number? I’d like to call her and thank her for the gifts sometime within the next few days.

    Elizabeth,
    Good to have you back. I thought about you alot over the holidays. How is your leg healing? BTW….. Sorry, I’m not your Secret Santa.

    Kady,
    Welcome to Ms. Gypsy’s. No need to just lurk. You’ll never find a better group of ladies than right here.

  171. Danae said

    Hey Madonna Are you ok or are you just tired? Give me two seconds and I will send you Dizey’s number.

  172. lwildstar said

    Debs – breathe – we all had problems with that pesky avatar – you may need to log out, clear all your cookies, shut down the computer, and then it might show up next time you log in to wordpress – thats what happened to me….

    Welcome Kaddy! love your banners and icons – the sketch of Kyle was wonderful – and yes you must be willing to share Henry……

    E – Ms.G is the only one who knew who all the Santas were so if she doesn’t speak up – you got a real secret santa!

  173. Madonna said

    Thanks Danae! (for Dizey’s number)

    I think I’m OK. I just can’t get enough sleep right now.

  174. Danae said

    I know how that goes. I go to bed at 9 and I still have a hard time making it to work by 8.

  175. Danae said

    Time for me to fly.

    Ciao bellas

  176. DebS said

    Thanks Danae! πŸ™‚

    I am off to have dinner with my dad and maybe browse a book store.

    See you all tomorrow! (or maybe tonight if I get a chance).

  177. rifkind said

    DebS,
    Be sure to LOG-In to WordPress.. there is a login url at the top of this page near the picture of the Demon saying that he is NOT Doctor Who #9..
    If you are already logged in, then do what WildStar suggested.
    BTW, it can take up to a hour for an uploaded image to become available to you on the blog.

    Kady, Welcome!!!
    I really loved your sketch of Henry! You are a very talented artist.
    Hang out with us as you please. Lurk or post, we all share in the love of Blood Ties and welcome another sister.

  178. Anzia said

    Kady- Welcome. As everyone else has said there’s no need to just lurk. We’re a very easy going bunch (for the most part…we do have our moments *blushes*) and are pretty much open for anything. πŸ™‚

    I’m so glad you guys like TAN. MamaClaire should be getting the credit since she’s the one who came up with the actual name. I just made an acronym.

    Himmie- you don’t have an evil bone in your body! If you want a not so evil sounding board…i’m all ears! ^_^

  179. DebS said

    Hi everyone,

    Hanging out at my apt with my dad. We are watching a movie, and I can’t just sit and watch tv anymore (it’s the ADD)..so I thought I would drop by and say hi. How is everyone this evening?

  180. DebS said

    OOOHhh…look my avatar showed up. Hurray!!!!

  181. lwildstar said

    now Debs – you need to learn how to put a pictuer behind your name…..

    one more time…and then I may wait and get instructions from those more capable….

  189. DebS said

    ok…awaiting your help….

  190. DebS said

    Ah..I see I was not patient enough. Being more patient may have to be a goal for 2008.

  191. lwildstar said

    LOL! Debs – yes patience is something you need with posting the pictures.

    Thank you again Tango for the calender – I printed out October today – it was funny becasue Henry was on my screen when the chick I don’t like came by – and was all “OOOO who is that?”
    I looked at her wierd becasue last time I showed her a picture of Henry she was like – oh I’m not interested in babies….’scuss me?
    But then again, it was the picture of Henry on the light table…YUM-MME

  192. Claire said

    Hi my lovelies….man..as my very potty mouthed father(whom Chris takes after)would say…Its colder than a witch’s tit outside!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GRRRR..I went to throw out trash..and I think I left two of my toes behind LOL!!!!

    Baby..did she call him a baby Iwildstar? Pfft! dans la tΓͺte imbΓ©cile!!!!!!!
    Whatever….she should only know about our Baby right?

    Anyway..family bonding time…going to watch a movie with Nikki and Serge!

  193. laurel said

    Well, what do you know, I made it over here today. I’m still at my folks’ house, and will probably go home tomorrow sometime.

    Welcome Kady! What part of the world are you living in?

  194. catcornmom said

    Kady, you have some awesome pics on your website!!!
    Claire-glad you’re enjoying your pillowcases!!

    Today has been a horrible/exhausting day!! I was bringing in a cup of dog food from the garage that I had scooped out of the big bag of dry dog food that I have sitting out there and when I dumped it in the bowl, I dumped a FREAKIN MOUSE out too!!!! OMG!!!! I was screaming my head off and jumping around. What did my dogs and one cat do? Watched with absolutely NO interest. It ran right into my son’s room. I shut the door and stuffed towels under the door. I’m on a monthly Orkin service plan right now, so I called them and hysterically said, “There’s a mouse in my house!!!!” It took the service person 5 hours to get out to my house. I literally sat on my kitchen bench for 5 hours and watched the door to make sure that little shit didn’t come out!!! Well, when the Orkin GAL got there, she didn’t see the mouse in Corey’s room, of course. She put down a bunch of glue traps and did my monthly spraying. I had a glue trap my mom brought over…I threw a huge glob of peanut butter in the middle of it and set it right in the middle of Corey’s room, closed the door, put the towels back and left to work out. My nerves were shot!!! Well, we came back an hour or so later, and guess which glue trap caught the little bastard???? MINE!!! So I ran next door to meet my new neighbor and asked him to come get the live mouse out of the room. His wife totally understood!!! So, I accomplished nothing on the last day of vacation, will probably never get the dogs food again, and I’m exhausted!! What a way to begin the year!!!

  195. laurel said

    OMG! That is the funniest thing I’ve heard in a long time. I don’t like removing them from the traps either and understand getting the neighbor to do it. I hope the rest of your year is better!

    Get some rest!

    love ya’

  196. Hi everyone! Welcome Kady! I love your BT banners!

    Oh Danae, I feel soooooo Old!!!!! I used to watch and love ol’ Trampis on Wagon Train when I was a little kid. He was right up there w/ Little Joe on Bonanza and I had to beg to get to stay up to watch him. (Can’t say Ive seen any western stuff since~ah but I sure had puppy love for those guys)

    Don’t give up DebS, it took me forever to my picture too!

  197. Anzia said

    So, had an interview today (it was one of those ‘get a call at 10am and be in their office by 1’ kind of things). Definitely interesting. It was for Davis Direct Marketing. They’re the kind of marketing firm that does the Toys For Tots stands every year. They want to fast track some people to management positions (we’re talking 6-9 months). I was “called back” for round 2 of interviews on friday. Bad part- it’s an ALL DAY thing. I have to go to an event and help out, see how things run, ask questions, etc. Which isn’t the bad part (just the ALL DAY part) since i’ve done things like that before. The job is “Performance Based.” The more you work the more you get paid. And it’s a weekly paycheck (which i LOVE). THe lady (becky) told me that they usually get paid between $400 & $700 a week with 90% between 500 & 600 a week. I can deal with that. it’s about how much I got at Novum and i do work REALLY hard most of the time.

    I have two tomorrow. One at 10:30 (Banker’s Life and Casualty) which is more of an informational session than an interview i believe. And then one at 3pm (Farmer’s Insurance Group). *sigh* We’ll see how it goes…

    Susana- I found the PERFECT green top that shows some skin w/o showing everything. ^_^ I plan on utilizing it tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  198. catcornmom said

    Good luck with your interviews, Anzia. OMG…I remember those days, and so do not envy you having to go through those dog and pony shows.

  199. Vicki said

    Hey sistas…

    Claire…did have a good time..but no snow!! we played a Wii that someone brought with them… I was really good at bowling!!! LOL

    Kady…Welcome to the CLinic..the only place on earth you will get support for you addiction instead of people trying to cure you of it!! HEHEHEHE
    and Claire is right…Sharies!!! Always..

    I had a snow day WHOO HOOOO so I got to take ddown my tree and stuff..rearanged the living room…and that was about all I could manage..

    Welll…I have a 2 hour delay for tomorrow so far…so I will hope that I can get some sleep tonight..

    Good luck Anzia…smile…and nod…it works everytime.!! LOL

    Vicki
    The Diva

  200. Anzia said

    Vicki, Catcorn- Thanks. I’m so tired of doing this kind of stuff that i’ve decided to stop w/the “pretenses.” I go in as me and just me. No jumping through hoops to make them think better of me (okay, maybe small ones but that’s human nature in most cases). Nothing worse than telling people just what they want to hear and then having to stick to it. ESPECIALLY when it’s not what you would have said…

  201. himmiefan said

    Welcome Kady!! I’m Himmiefan (my cat is a Himalayan Persian, a “himmie”), and I live in room 100 here at the Bloody Ford Clinic (near the gardens and the kitchen). Let’s see, I believe Tango, Elizabeth, and I think Laurel live nearby. Anyway, pick a room and settle in. We’re all here as crazy (in a loveable way) as we seem.

    Catcornmom – LOL!!

    Good luck Anzia!!! Prayers and crossed fingers for you!

  202. Thinking of you Anzia!!!!!! I know things are going to work out fine for you! It’s the looking that’s so hard!

    Today someone came to my hubby’s work with a gift for him. They went to the job that he was at a couple of months ago and was fired from (corporate piranha wanna bees / difference in values) Anyhow, they told them that he’d moved to this other firm clear across town and they brought him a sweet gift~warms your heart :>)

  203. Linda said

    Hi everyone!

    I thought my day was rough…catcornmom, I think you win the prize. If there was one…

    DebS — I am going to set up my account shortly, so I am reading your progress with great interest. I too, hope to have an avatar with a picture behind it!

    Kady — Welcome! You do have some lovely artwork. We hope to hear from you often!

    Anzia — Good luck with those interviews. It is great that you have some set up right away!

    Well, I am exhausted. The first day back was horrendous. It started out slow for about an hour, then all h*&l broke loose. I have been asleep on my sofa for two hours. Can’t keep my eyes open any longer. Will see you tomorrow.
    g’night!

  204. rifkind said

    Good Luck Anzia,
    My mantra was always, “Help me be the best that I can be!”
    SO be yourself.
    I hope that you find a job that you like and can grow in.
    Rifkind

  205. lwildstar said

    Good luck Anzia!
    Just be your wonderful self! You have all this positive energy behind you….This is your year!

    ok just finished up on the emails and it 8:30 – I really need to get working!

    Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions yesturday!

  206. Annalaise duChat said

    Good Morning Ladies!

    Good Luck with your interview Anzia! Knock ’em dead.

    Welcome aboard Kady, and I agree with the rest of the girls. Awesome artwork.

    Hi Rif, what’s new?

  207. Anzia said

    Thanks again guys…i’m off for basically the day so…i’ll let ya’ll know how it goes. ^_^

  208. rifkind said

    Annalaise,
    Sorry Dear, I didn’t get to re-read the sections you had questions on.. work was crazy yesterday with the first day back for most of the team.
    It’s below zero wind-chill outside.. I really don’t want to go OUT into that and go to work… *sigh* oh well.
    I will try and get those sections re-read and send you an email later!

    Knock-em dead Anzia!

  209. Claire said

    Good morning my lovelies!!!!!!!!!
    Sheesh Chelli…Yuck!!! I know how you feel dear…had mice at my last house!
    Thank Goodness you don’t have cats…like I do!! They were dropping them at my bedroom door with no heads! ARgh!!!! Put the dog food in a heavy plastic sealable bin or one of those metal trash cans with a tight lid!!
    We had them in the dog food also!!!!
    On not nasty note…Thank you my dear..you were an awesome secret santa!!!!!!!!

    My darling Z….Good Good Luck!!!!

    Glad you had a good time Vicki!!!!!!!!!

    Hey did you notice BT is #7 over at TV vote! YES!!!!!!!!

    love yas!

  210. Danae said

    Buongiorno bellas!

    If you haven’t seen your email yet today is the best start to a new year. My sister had her baby at 1:22 this morning. Aiden John Christopher Tracy 7 lbs 8 oz.

    I sent a picture via email but here it is again.

  211. Linda said

    Congrats Danae, he is beautiful! Such a big name for a little one. I know you are all so excited.

  212. Danae said

    Oh we are we are!

  213. Himmiefan said

    Hey Dani!! Thanks for the photo. Aiden is adorable! Now, is everything okay with him?

  214. Danae said

    He is great perfect wonderful. That picture my sister sent to me. I haven’t seen him yet.

  215. elizabeth said

    Danae – Little Aiden is beautiful! I love babies and the funny little noises they make! I don’t miss the sleep deprivation πŸ™‚

    Kady – welcome! I hope you enjoy your stay at the Bloody Ford Clinic as much as I do. I’m right down the hall from Himmiefan, Laurel and Tango. Find a room and settle in.

  216. Danae said

    http://s213.photobucket.com/albums/cc317/luvslegolas3000/jewelry/

    I did four more necklaces last night. You can see all ten here.

  217. lwildstar said

    Hi!
    Lunch time is here! yippee! I know I’ve been sneeking over anyway.

    It suddenly got cold in the office and I couldn’t figure out why…turns out the woman behind me who has the AC/Heating unit closesets to me had a hot flash and turned the unit to AC! yes I said something to her…I’m freezing!

    Congrats again Dani!

    Chelli – eewwwww! thankfully i don’t have mice – but mom had a problem a couple years agao and used those glue traps…she caught a mouse but wouldn’t take him off the trap or even pick the trap up (Duh) so she tipped a 5 gallon bucket over it so it she wouldn’thave to see it until dad came home….well don’t ask me how but the sucker got two legs free and when daad took the bucket off it made a break for it taking the trap along! unfourtunatly his freedomm was short lived – the sucker fell down the sump pump pitt! i didn’t even ask how they got it out….

    ok off to go check emails – don’t forget to vote! on http://www.savemyshow.com Blood ties has over 8400 votes – and 9 negatives and 3 dont cares…. why bother?

  218. Danae said

    Did they even bother to get it out of there?

  219. Danae said

    And another thing: If you don’t care why vote?

  220. Linda said

    I think I know why… if you are curious about the voting totals, you have to vote to see them. So someone who was just looking to see what the numbers were, might vote “don’t care” or even “don’t renew”. I realized this when i was looking at some other shows, to see how many votes they were getting.

    I looked at a couple other TAN shows (AW and SOL) and found that Blood Ties is getting all the votes! I was nice and voted “don’t care”.

  221. Danae said

    Yeah That would be one reason.

  222. Linda said

    What I do not understand is why someone would go to a site like Hey Nielson, and write negative reviews for shows and their actors. That is expending a lot of energy, just to be toxic..

  223. Danae said

    Plus it gives it good publicity and I think just making comments about it on Hey!Neilson brings the rating up.

  224. laurel said

    Congratulations Danae! What a beautiful little guy. I’m so glad he got here safe and sound. It means so much that you share this joy with all of us.

    It is great to see some new names popping up here. πŸ™‚

    I see that there is once again some concern that lt is about to close their site and there are some names I don’t remember seeing before. I wonder if that will be how we find out what they decide.
    I went to vote and got stuck on the page. I had to shut off my server and start over. Is anyone else having trouble with it? I mean the save my show site.

  225. laurel said

    Z – Best of luck to you today! I know how hard it is to let your real self shine in such stressful interview situations, but we are here for you and believe in you! Keep us informed and we’ll keep the prayers and good vibes coming.

  226. lwildstar said

    sigh….our old intern came by for a visit…sigh…he is so cute (inside and out) he gave me hug. such a sweety! and only 23….sigh… He’s now in or management training program and his next rotation will have him working with someone out of our office – so I hope he comes back to visit more often…….
    well need to get back to work…but now I have the giggles – he shaved his head, and YES a rubbed his hair – or lack there of! fuzzy like a peach!
    Good grief what have you guys done to me! πŸ˜€

  227. Danae said

    Thanks Laurel. I pestered you guys with all the trials of this pregnancy and getting to it with the miscarriages and stuff. I only thought it was right. Plus you guys helped me through it.

  228. Madonna said

    Congratulations Danae!

    What a doll baby he is!!!!!

  229. Arrowyn said

    Welcome, Kady! I’m one of the Oregon gang. I used to lurk, too, until I found out how wonderful and supportive these ladies are. BTW, I think I have “borrowed” and saved almost all of your artwork. You have a lot of talents!

  230. Danae said

    THANKS!

  231. Madonna said

    E! is doing a poll about the Best Shows of 2007. Blood Ties is not even on the list of 100. You might want to send her an email for a write in. At least it might help us get a little more publicity.

    We’ve turned you wonton and expressive.

    Is that what they call it now!
    Now I’ve really got the giggles! I can tell you I would love for him to come visit more often, just for the eye candy – he has a very nice girl friend (yes I’ve met her- she had come down one day to meet him for lunch), but he’s Kyles age!
    sigh…………………

    well I guess I should go back to work – enough day dreaming!

  236. Linda said

    Madonna,

    I just sent another email to Kristen at E Online. Maybe she will add Blood Ties to the list, if enough of us contact her.

  237. lwildstar said

    Chupacabra: Dark Seas was one of the worse movies I’ve seen – I felt so sorry for Dylan ….

  238. Arrowyn said

    Gad, Chupacabra WAS awful, wasn’t it!

    This BT schedule change is for Freyja and anybody else who lives in Canada — from 2 posters on the Bloodlines forum:

    _______________
    This is a post for those Canucks that watch BT on City TV.

    I emailed City TV Vancouver because after this coming Sunday’s episode (We’ll Meet Again) I didn’t see BT on the schedule. Apparently it’s being moved to a new timeslot for the season finale (8pm Wednesday, Jan. 9th).

    Those of you that watch City TV in any of its other cities (Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg) may want to check your schedules or send an email to double check any timeslot changes.

    I also asked if they had heard anything about a second season, and they said they hadn’t heard anything one way or the other.
    __________
    Same for City-TV Toronto. Blood ties will play on Sunday Jan. 6 at 7pm and then it’s on wednesday Jan. 9 at 8pm….

  239. Arrowyn said

    I’m just full of TV scheduling news today, aren’t I? Well, I’m full of “something”!

    I never saw Chupacabra Dark Seas…

    How does it compare to Death Row?

  241. Himmiefan said

    Glad to hear Aidan is okay!! πŸ™‚

  242. Nisi said

    Hello everyone. I was so behind reading the blog. I had that awful cold that is going around. I think I’m about over it.

    Laurel – Are you OK now? I was concerned.

    Danae – Your necklaces are very pretty. It looks like you use a different technique than I learned in doing illusion necklaces.

    Kady – Welcome. I loved your sketch of Henry.

    E-How is your leg? I hope you are doing better.

  243. DebS said

    Hello Sistas!

    Danae-Congratulations again! Such a beautiful baby boy!

    Z-Good luck on all your interviews. You are going to do great!

    Linda-I finally got the picture to show up next to my name and behind my name. Now, I have to just figure out if I want to make a blog now that I have it, and if so how do I do that? hehe. Lots to think about it.

    Mentioned this in email, but just finished Fantasy Lover. I loved it!!! I am about to start Night Pleasures. I may not be able to stop once I start.

  244. elizabeth said

    Nisi – I’m glad you are feeling better. I have that dratted cold now. My leg is doing okay. I can actually walk normally for longer periods of time, but every once in awhile I get a sharp pain….like an electrical shock shoot through the muscle. I guess it just wants me to know I messed it up bad *sigh*

    Laurel – I sent you an email. I’ve also spent a little time today working on my story. I think I may have even figured out a plot. These darned characters won’t leave me alone……. Did I tell you I hate writing in the first person? yes…well I do, but this character insists. Whatcha gonna do? *shrugs shoulders*

  245. lwildstar said

    Debs – if you want to set up a WordPress Blog – Rif has some great directions on her blog page – I used them to set up my page for the story.

    speaking of which I kept a pad of paper on my desk all day and kept scribbling notes – I’m going to type them up tonight but I think I wrote two pages for chapter 22 – bad girl! I should have been working…then on the way home I got an idea for the next chapter and spent the whole train ride writing – its only a 15-20 min ride but still… work just gets in the way – but I don’t knock having the job.

    Laurel – hows your back?

    Nisi – I’ve been fighting that cold since before Christmas – the cough finally went away but now I have a sore throat….I am so sick of being sick!

    E – fantastic!…trust me I know about those pesk charactors demanding to “get out”!

    Linda – I didn’t see Death Row – but Chupacabra Dark Seas is not a movie I would want on my resume! I guess every actor has one or two of those – at least Dylan is the good guy.

    Off to check the emails!

  246. Linda said

    DebS — Good for you! Love the pic of Kyle behind your name…from Zerophillia right? Loved that movie.

    lwildstar — I rented Death Row and it was not good. Very gory and violent and not much plot. Only for Kyle…

  247. lwildstar said

    its sad isn’t it? – reduced to renting anything he’s in, even the bad movies – just to get a glimps – even the Disney stuff – oh the shame – I must admit I’ve seen Cheeta Girls 6 times (but I can use my niece as an enabeler he he he )

    Its not even 8pm yet and I am tired – I think what ever this bug I’ve got is really starting to get to me….

    Dani – yes they did get the mouse out of the sump pump pit – even though they very rarely get water in it (unlike my house where the sump pump runs every hour) dad was afraid that if the little guy got off the trap he might try to climb up the outflow pipe and get stuck in the check valve, not a good thing – I just never asked HOW they got it out since the pit is like 5 feet deep. Although I had visions of dad using a broom, sticking the end of the handle on the glue trap and pulling out that way….the funny thing is the opening in the cover to sump pump pit isn’t very big – and the mouse was still on the trap – I just can’t figure out how it even mangaed to get through the hole! Magic Mice!

  248. laurel said

    Hi gals! I’m back home as of 10 minutes ago, and I’m feeling much better today. It was a tough week in some ways.

    I wanted to let you all know I just downloaded episode 22 “Deep Dark” from i-Tunes!!!

    Finally. I didn’t really expect to see it there, but checked “just in case” and was very happy to see it. Now I’ll have to play it on the big screen so I can enjoy the whole thing in one ‘bite’. lol
    I think my family wants to run out to dinner so I’ll check back later.

    Thanks for your prayers and concern.

  249. laurel said

    lwildstar -I’m home so I can work on chapters 9, 10 and 11 and try to send the edits as attachments. I know I’m way behind so I did this publicly. I wanted Rifkind to know I’m going as fast as I can. I couldn’t work on it while heavily medicated, sorry.

    I’m glad your feeling better!

  253. DebS said

    Linda-Yep my picture is from Zerophilia. I love that movie too!

  254. lwildstar said

    Dani – in response to your anti valentines feelings – I don’t care for the day myself – but now that I have people to share my love with – I’m looking forward to making the cards…
    I told my sister what I was doing and she just thought it was the cutest idea ever – all these grown women makeing valentines for each other…..just like back in school!
    I think her kids school did away with the “custom” becasue some kids got more cards than others…

    speaking of which – it has gone back to depressing to get the mail – no cards to look forward to… πŸ˜‰

  255. lwildstar said

    ooops did I chase everybody away again?

    well I’m going to see if I can finishe the page I’m working on – my hands are starting to hurt – but I’ll check back before I log out…

    Ok, I know I’m WAY behind and I am appropriately ashamed. 😦

    About the Sisterhood of the Traveling Books: I have the first four Brotherhood of the Black Dagger books – just got 2 thru 4 in the mail today – and I’m pretty sure that I’m supposed to mail the first one to Wildstar but I’m having a senior moment. Wildstar, can you confirm?

    Does anyone read Maryjanice Davidson? Her stuff cracks me up and I’ve got a few stand alone novels I can send out if anyone’s interested. I mostly read detective mysteries, fantasy, most any novel about vampires. I have a bunch of Dean Koonz, and the Kim Harrison witch series. Some Dan Simmons, Simon Green…and some flat out mushy romance that I haven’t read but for some reason bought. I’ll email a list out later.

    In the meantime, has TPTS (the powers that suck) said anything about Blood Ties being either canceled or renewed? I’m feeling the urge to give up hope but then the email came out today that Deep Dark had finally hit iTunes so I’m hoping that’s a good sign. I HATE the suspense!

    Happy New Year!!

  258. lwildstar said

    Prtfvr – Debs is mailing me Fantasy Lover – thats #1 right? can I get on the list for the next three?

    This is going to be fun!

  259. rifkind said

    Laurel,
    I am glad that you are home and doing OK.
    I was very concerned about you travelling when you felt so poorly.
    I had visions of you arriving at your destination and then going straight to the hospital!
    I’m glad that you were able to visit with the family.

    Hee Hee .. I DO love the story that WildStar is writing.
    I am waiting for new chapters to be posted.. with baited breath..
    No! No worms in my teeth! Hee Hee.
    I hope that you feel better soon.
    Rifkind

  260. lwildstar said

    LOL!!! Rif! leave poor Laurel alone….

    just checked out the savemy show site again – voting is up to over 9000 already!
    Blood Ties is still number 2 at H!N – it finally let me in with out locking the computer
    ANd on the other voting site Blood Ties moved to #7…

    are there any other voting sites?

  261. lwildstar said

    maybe I should start posting teasers/spoilers to torture Rif…hummmmmm
    naw I think the one I emailed last night was enough…

  262. rifkind said

    WHAT!!??
    I DID say that I wanted Laurel to get better………
    and I MEAN that

  263. rifkind said

    πŸ™‚
    Is is wrong to say that I love your story??
    Hummmmmm ??????

  264. rifkind said

    OK, now WildStart is teasing me like LT did with the (Next Week) teasers for Blood Ties.
    I wish we had more episodes of Blood Ties to be waiting for and talking about the teasers. It was always fun to see the real episode and what the sneaky editors had put together to make us think that the episode was about something else …

    hey sistas..

    I just went over to Eonline..and emailed the Kirsten girl…telling her that she forgot the best show of 2007…wrote her a not-to-long paragraph and hopefully she will get the message…but who knows..

    I just think its funny how excited your getting, begging for the next chapter.
    Yes, yes I did see that you wished Laurel to get better….

    now the teaser idea is beginning to look more appealing…
    You know the teaser you got yesturday is from chapter 21…thats a long way off…..

  268. prtfvr said

    I email the Eonline chick too. Blood Ties RULES!

  269. rifkind said

    Two can play at THAT game..
    Now where was I on that BT fan-fiction…
    Note to self, torment WildStar –just a little bit! LOL!!

  270. lwildstar said

    LOL!!!!!!! ooooo Rif! is that a challenge?
    Now I just might have to post a teaser…muaahahahahahah!

  271. rifkind said

    Shhhh!
    See how I get her to give me SOMETHING, even if it is a tiny morsel of the story. πŸ™‚
    Muwahahaha!!!

  272. lwildstar said

    Rif – check your email…..

  273. lwildstar said

    Now that should keep you for a while.

    ok its bed time – talk at you guys tomorrow!

  274. laurel said

    Hey lwildstar? Should I send the edits to Rif so she can fix the typos before they go out to the public? Huh? Is it mean to tease her with the possibilities?

    LOL

  275. Anzia said

    Interview update- So, both interviews went pretty good. I was called back for Bankers for round 2 and probably could have signed on the dotted line w/Farmers as I sat there. BUT BUT BUT (there are so many of those) i’m not sure it’d be a good fit (i’m not nearly as passionate about insurance as the two guys I talked with were- though the second one was VERY cute and VERY VERY fun to be around!) and i can’t pay to get my license(s). That and Farmer’s would be the one i’d go with and they just scare the daylights out of me. They have it set up so that you own your own business in SIX MONTHS! WAY WAY WAY too much risk involved for me at this point in time. Same w/Bankers. I can’t afford a 100% commission job. I need to know that i’m gonna have at least a certain amount coming in every pay period.

    Tomorrow I have an all day “interview” with Davis Direct Marketing. But, i have a feeling that it’s gonna turn out to be a bit like the insurance companies and if that’s the case then I’m not gonna be able to do it. I just need a set hourly wage. I can’t afford to NOT have it. So, before the interview is set to start, i’m going to see if there is someone I can ask questions and then based on those questions I’ll decide to stay for the interview or explain to them that I would rather not waste their time when it could be spent on a candidate that is more likely to take the job than not.

    I’ve also decided to get a job at someplace like Starbucks so that i have SOME income coming in while I look for a “career” type job. Who knows…maybe i’ll apply to the Journal Sentinal (newspaper) and see what happens…

    CONGRADS DANI! He’s so adorable!!!

    Okay, i HAVE to go to bed. I have a monster headache (from yesterday) and am exhausted…good night guys!

  276. laurel said

    Way to go Anzia! It sounds like you have made some good choices about giving yourself time to find a good fit.
    Every interview is good practice for you and you will have the right feel down when the perfect opportunity presents itself. πŸ™‚

  277. rifkind said

    OK Laurel and WildStar are teasing me..
    She sent me one HOT paragraph… no fair!
    More Please! πŸ™‚

  278. lwildstar said

    Hers the numbers from savemyshow.com this morning

    Should It Stay On The Air? Percentage Number Of Votes
    Yes 100 % 9476
    No, Cancel It 0 % 26
    I Don’t Care Either Way 0 % 5

    I think the cancel it people or Moonlight fans becase their numbers are no where near Blood Ties

  279. lwildstar said

    Good morning Rif – and Laurel!

    I guess you liked the snipet I sent you….Dr. Duchat seemed too…

    Laurel no lets torment Rif a little longer and send the edits to me.. πŸ˜‰

    ok no one left me any work to do – so I have NOTHING this morning – I guess I’ll go write until someone comes in….

  280. lwildstar said

    well HR made a surprise visit – so I will gone from here until Lunch 😦

  281. lwildstar said

    But I just had to sneek over and say soething πŸ™‚

  282. Anzia said

    Wild- VERY nice paragraph. ^_^ Nothing like traveling fingers to wake you up in the morning. Have fun with HR. ^_^

    Laurel- thanks. ^_^ This decision (if it is one) came about from panic and a long discussion w/my aunt. I also talked to my stepmom last night and she supported the idea whole heartedly. Which is a big plus ’cause that girl is VERY vocal about things she doesn’t back. Knowing that most of my family are behind me is a big boost. I don’t have to worry about you guys. I know you’ll be there come Hell or high water so…YAY! Besides, if i get a job at starbucks i get to spend my day around COFFEE!!!!!!!!!! and what is wrong with THAT???? *in dreamy voice* nothing…

    Okay, gotta go. I’ll keep ya’ll posted…

  283. Himmiefan said

    Hey Ms. Z. Sounds to me like you’re on the right track. I agree about the Farmer’s thing. Unless you’re a born salesperson, it’s way too much risk.

    Keep us posted!

  284. Have you girls been over to the Lifetime site lately? If you haven’t, you might want to go check it out. There’s been a new development. I don’t want to repost it because there’s still some spectulation going on, but the news isn’t good.

  285. Danae said

    Nah I can’t go there anymore. I can’t bring myself to do it.

    Buongiorno bellas.

  287. Maddie Mo said

    Morning all.

    I think I’m having post Holiday depression. I’m in a complete funk and I haven’t even thought about Maddie’s birhtday yet which is next Thursday. Poor baby. I always said I wasn’t going to slight her on the B-day cause it was so close to Chirstmas and her I am the first year with NO plan at all for a party yet. I’m the worst mommy ever.

  288. Danae said

    The first year doesn’t really have to have anything big. Just invite some people by calling them and say I am having pizza and cake for Maddie’s first birthday or something like that. She must have a cake on her first though and make sure you let her play with it before cutting it

  289. Danae said

    And you aren’t the worst mommy. She won’t even remember it most likely.

  290. Claire said

    Good morning sistas!
    Today is clean the house no work day…argh! Yeah Maddie I agree with Danae..just buy a cake and have some friends over..take some pictures and you’re all set!

    I’m going over to Tan to read whatever it is that’s sure to put me in a funk….

    Z..good luck on your interview!

  291. Maddie Mo said

    I wasn’t planning on doing anything big. Just family and a cake for her to play in, and I can always do that on her birhtday or next weekend even. I was just going to do it all this weekend. Then time got away from me with the holiday and with this being a 3 day work week, I’m all confused. I think I’m just blue. We finaly got the tree down last night and the house seems so blah without the decorations.

  292. Danae said

    My tree is still up and chances are it will still be up on Valentines day. I hate taking the decorations down. I never understood how my sister can always take the tree down the day after Christmas. I think everybody gets the post holiday blahs.

  293. Linda said

    Hi girls,

    I was over at TAN earlier this morning looking through the posts. Nearly as I can tell, there has still been no definite word. I still have hope…

  294. Maddie Mo said

    Today at work is horrible. There isn’t much going on yet and we are in the middle of physical inventory. Which means that until they are done counting I can’t do anything that I normally do. Which really bugs me cause I would much rather be at home right now in my chair by the woodburning stove ( it’s cold cold cold here) reading more of my Dark Hunter Talon’s book. I have it with me and I am seriously considering reading it here.

  295. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Good Morning! Bonjour Comment allez vous?? YES IT IS YOUR LONG LOST *CRAPPY SISTA’* BETH THE BADDDDDD!!! I have been trying to recover from almost 2 weeks of vacation time and have been just plain crazy!

    1st and foremost Happy New Year and I have missed ya’ll so much looking over some of the posts I’m sitting here in tears looking at your beautiful and loving faces and until this very moment didn’t realize how I LOVE AND MISSED ALL OF YOU SO MUCH !!! XOXOXOXOX

    **Lady A ….Thank you sooooo much for my gifts She was my Secret Santa and I couldn’t email her to thank her and cathing up this week I finally am trying to do that now! I love my Rosary , love the scarf and the beaded bracelet I wore already and got many compliments . I just need to try and snap a pic of them and get them here somehow. THANKS AGAIN RENEE’ you rock my little Goth Sista’ !

    Having computer issues at home and my Outlook Express has like almost **1400** YES ! Emails trapped in there somehow someway! I have to call either Dell (ugggggggggggg) in Freakin’ INDIA aaagain or maybe call Cox Cable, another day won’t matter at this point I’ll never be able to read and catch up with that many emails.

    DANI GIRL!! Love the pic of Aiden and I so love his name a good strong Irish name he’ll be a good man! Love ya’ and thanks for calling me New Years Eve I love ya’ and I need a hug from all of you I missed you soooo much.

    Claire Chris is good I hear, thank God lots of prayers go a long, long way !! Love your pillow cases and am very jealous πŸ˜‰ I love you!!

    I so missed my Prtfvr and am in desperate need of some snarky sarcastic words to make me feel like I am home ! Love ya’ and hope the family issues are better for you.

    Madonna I hope the book was ok w/you I CLEARLY didn’t know what to get for you and hope it is worth while and has some useful info, I love You! and hope ya’ll are all well and good in the new year~!

    Sorry if I missed or neglected to mention anyone so much info overload, Oh BTW thanks for all the cards I actually have cards started and hadn’t mailed them so ya’ll will be getting Christmas cards pathectic as it is very late. So Sorry ya’ll ! I SUCK!! and not in a good Henry way either πŸ˜›

  296. lwildstar said

    Well its about Dang time Diz! no seriously major hugs! Ihope thisngs are going well with you…we’ve missed you so – and noone can spare with Prtfvr like you can…..
    Hey I can start looking forward to getting cards in the mail again – appearently you’re not the only one who never made it to a mail box πŸ˜‰ you know who you are….

    Well considering the feedbackfrom that little snipet I sent out last night – I had better get writting!

    TTFN!

  297. Danae said

    Dizey Dahlin sista I was wrong on Aiden’s full name. My mom confirmed to me that it was Aiden John Christopher. Well it is actually Aiden John Daniel. Aiden they choose themselves. John was my grandfather’s name and Daniel is Ryan’s middle name, that is my sister’s fiance.

    Wow my grandfather will be gone a year on the 17th. I can’t believe a whole year has gone by already. There is going to be a memorial service for him on the 19th. I wish I knew what to expect. I know this year will be hard but it will get easier and easier.

  298. elizabeth said

    Hey Diz – I missed you! Well, actually, I missed everyone over the holidays like you did and I am trying my darndest to get back in the swing of things. Okay, I admit that is a bit of an ambitious statement – I have a lousy head cold, can’t think my way out of a wet paper bag and have a combination of post holiday blues (like Maddie), Blood Ties withdrawal and it is freakin’ raining in Oregon again and I want sunshine!!!! Done whining now…it is safe to come out of hiding πŸ™‚

    Msgypsy – Who was my secret santa? This is driving me crazy people!! I don’t know who to thank for my delightful gifts.

    Annalaise – I haven’t ventured over to Lifetime in awhile. I just get too depressed trying to wade through all the posts. I may pop over there later.

  299. Danae said

    E do you have SAD? I do and my sister that just had the baby does.

  300. elizabeth said

    lwildstar – I know I asked you to change my Google access to getting just one email, but can you please change it back? Pretty, please? I thought I would be okay with the one email with all the comments, but it is confusing as heck to read and I feel so out of the loop I am having withdrawal. I can’t follow the conversation threads and would much rather deal with hundreds of email in my inbox. I can’t wait to get a computer at home so I can take care of this stuff on my own *sigh* Thank you, my blood sista πŸ™‚

  301. elizabeth said

    Danae – I think I have a touch of SAD. I know my son really struggles with it and has moved to a much sunnier place. I usually do okay, unless I am sick (like now) or we have too many rainy days in a row (like now)….then I tend to get depressed easier.

  302. Danae said

    It is coming to light that more and more people have it and depression and just try to hide it because they are ashamed.

  303. E — Don’t bother. Just another false alarm.

    Hi Dizey! Good to hear from you. Hope you had a good Christmas too!

    lwildstar – have I told you I love you today??!!! Thanks for putting me back in the loop πŸ™‚ BTW, have you posted your work somewhere? I keep reading comments, and would love to read it if you will let me?

    Annalaise – I took a break yesterday and popped over to your site to read some of your new chapters. I love what you have written and can’t wait to see more.

  307. lwildstar said

  309. elizabeth said

    Amazing how much better I am feeling πŸ™‚ I am getting the emails (thank you lwildstar) AND I have your site bookmarked so I can take a break later and read what you have written. To top it all off – I glanced out the window a minute ago and the sky has lightened up for an Oregon “sun break” !! This is me doing a lopsided, one legged, happy dance πŸ™‚

  310. Danae said

    LOL! I can see it now. To funny.

  311. Madonna said

    Hi all!

    Dizey!!!! Welcome back dear. We’ve missed you here! Thank you! I loved the book and the bookmark and the keychain. I didn’t have any drawing books except for what came with my college “lesson plan” books. You did great. (((((((((HUGS))))))))))

    Elizabeth,
    I’m glad you’re leg is feeling just a little better. I thought about ya alot over the holidays. ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))) for you too.

    Danae,
    Do you think that maybe Daniel could also be a nod to you as well as Ryan’s middle name? That would be really sweet if she named hime after you.

  312. elizabeth said

    Thanks Madonna – I really needed the hug and I am sending one back to you! How are you doing?

  313. Madonna said

    Thanks Elizabeth,

    I’m doing just fine with the exception of a bad case of fatigue.

  314. Danae said

    Madonna that would be nice of them and it was very sweet of you to think of it but last night they said that it was Ryan’s middle name. They said nothing about me.

  315. Margaret said

    Welcome back Diz. Long time no seee.

  316. Danae said

  317. Maddie Mo said

    Time to make the donuts.

    Ciao bellas

  322. Himmiefan said

    Hey Maddie Mo. Have you tried the light bulbs that simulate sunlight? They’re great this time of the year. I used to get the winter blues, but the lights helped. Now, I know this will sound crazy, but going to the mall also works. I wonder if it’s the lighting and the colors. The sales aren’t bad either…

    Elizabeth and Laurel – hope you’re both doing better.

    Hello Ms. Dizey!!!

    Now, where are Lady A and Freyja? What about Vampgrl?

  323. Maddie Mo said

    Himmie,
    Never thought about that. I might have to try it. I know back before Christmas it had been overcast and rainy/snowy here for over 2 weeks and i was a complete mess. I get really down in the winter, it’s all cold and glummy and ugly.

  324. vicki said

    DIZY!!!!

    GIrl where have you been?? We thought you had dropped off the face of the earth!!!!! LOL

    Well no snow day today..school…agian..wasnt too bad for a Friday. but i had alot of students not show up…No surprise there..

    Laurel – Somewhere in the madness that is my day job and sneaking peaks at the blog and email I missed that you had not been feeling well. I’m glad you are back in town and hope you are feeling better? Maybe next week we can get together for lunch or coffee?

    Did I read somewhere on the blog that Moonlight has been cancelled?

  326. rifkind said

    Elizabeth,
    I am not sure that Moonlight was cancelled.
    I saw some pages on the web about A particular episode of the show was being cancelled during the holiday season.. I never saw anything that stated that the WHOLE series was being cancelled.
    I bet that there are re-runs of the show now because of the writer’s strike.

    Does anybody else have confirmaton ??

  327. elizabeth said

    I am going to leave work a little early today to meet some friends for drinks and Happy Hour snacks – yea! πŸ™‚ It will be nice to kick back for a bit and have a little fun!

  328. elizabeth said

    I am outta here ladies. I will catch up with all of you tomorrow. Have a great evening all.

  329. lwildstar said

    hey guys!!!
    I spent the whole ride home from work writing – and as soon as I log out of here I’m goint o get everything typed up…

    Himmie – Maddie Mo – my sister got plant grow light bulbs and put them in the ceiling fan/light in her living room she says its helped and thaey are less expensive thatn the “prescription” simulated sunlight bulbs…..we did find a table top light box but then you have to sit in fron t of the box for 20-30 minutes aday – by having the bulbs in a light fixture already in the room – she can do the things she would normally do – even cleaning πŸ™‚

  330. lwildstar said

    well isnt this funny – I can’t even read my own handwriting! I must have been in super writing mode ‘cuz most of my notes are completely illegible! AUggggg!!!!!!!

    Oh well.

  331. DebS said

    Hi everyone!

    I don’t think that I can catch up with all the posts from today.

    Did notice that Wildstar wanted on the list for the next three Dark Hunter books. I just finished Night Pleasures, would you like me to send that to you next week?

  332. lwildstar said

    Debs – I’ll take what ever books are available – from what has been written about them – I’m going to have to read them all anyway!

    boy its quiet tonight…

    ehem – anouncment – I finished chapter 23!
    told you I did a lot of writing on the way home….

  333. lwildstar said

  334. lwildstar said

    well I’ve killed the blog again 😦

    Laurel I sent you an email!

    Well if no ones around I think I will take a breack from the computer and go do some reading…

    Night all!

  335. vicki said

    Hey girls…

    I know for a fact that Moonlight is new next week..(checked the tivo) I am pretty sure that tonight is a repeat…but anyway..havent heard any news about it being cancelled…Hmmmm maybe CBS should should shop around for a FAR sexier, better, darker vampire…of course they would have to relocate to Canada..or maybe Henry can check out LA….

    Augustus…Who has the LA territory??? Anyone???

    DIZ!!!! I was just talking about you the other day. About how I missed my fellow video nerd although Wildstar is pretty good.

    Can you stick around a little longer this time, you tease? πŸ˜‰

  338. prtfvr said

    Elizabetta: I start getting mopey around November and don’t recover until May usually. I’ve got SAD big time, plus your garden variety depression and my son’s birthday is coming up – he’ would have been 28 on February 17th. I feel your pain, sister! I really do. *hugs*

  339. Anzia said

    DIZ! About bloody time you got your butt back here! I had the search party ready to go. I know we got updates from some of the lovely sisters here but…it wasn’t the same. I needed your shining personality! I missed you!!!!! (((((((((((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    Job Update- nope, not gonna take the one today either. EVEN if they offer it. I don’t want to own my own company at 23. I just don’t want that responsibility right now. maybe down the road but i have a lot of things to figure out first. LIke what i want to do with my life!? So, still searching. Gonna apply for local minimum wage jobs…We’ll see how it goes…

  340. Claire said

    Diz!!!Bonjour ma perdu soeur. Bonne et heureuse annΓ©e Γ  vous et Γ  votre famille, j’ai ratΓ© vous tellement !Je me demandais si vous cessiez de nous aimante? Wow! I was thinking about you all day today!
    Please stick around for a while this time…otherwise I’m going to have to teach every one of the sistas naughty French! and that’s just to much work!

    Vicki…lol you remembered the lickum comment Nikki made!!!
    I’ll give her the link!

    I think alot of people are affected by the seasonal change..Nikki and I are very moody during winter..and Chris is just impossible to live with in winter.
    Man am I tired! Monique came over after work with the kids and they just left!
    That baby Jake is a trip!!! I call him worm boy! I have never seen such a active baby! He is only 7 months and he stood up and walked around his pack and play! WTF? Little man on the run..like lightening all over my house!

    And now big old Serge is demanding I watch a movie with him and Nikki! LOL!!
    It could be worse right..he could hate me! He’s so funny..he always wants me to hang out with them..he was mad on New Years that I didn’t go out with them.
    Brittany did well..she got home around 2:30 in a little pain and looking pale…she has to stay off her feet and rest all weekend and we’ll wait for the doc to call with results.
    Anyway..they’re nagging..so bonne nuit mes amis until tomorrow!
    love yas!

  341. Annalaise duChat said

    Slow down Wildstar, your going to hurt yourself!LOL

    Elizabeth — Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  342. Hi BT Family,
    Wow drop out lay in bed read all day and then go work in the classroom and it really gets busy around here!!!!

    Danae~ Aiden is a jewel~ Fabulous pictures thanks!!!!! It’s going to be so fun to share in his life!!!!

    Dizey ~ Great to hear from you again!!!!

    Anzia ~ It’s always good to know what you don’t want! Sounds like you’re doing some great thinking and planning! Keep it up! We’re all there for ya!

    Lots of us suffer from that SAD around here in Oregon (sun is in short supply) My husband does and takes meds/boy has it taken the edge off of feeling bummed about the weather! It really makes it more tolerable. I put a grow-light bulb in a lamp who knows if it works or not, worth a try one way or the other.

  344. lwildstar said

    finally! I’m free – and the result was? “just send him some money and I’ll take him shopping” oh well –

    So how’s everybody doing?

  345. DebS said

    Just got home not long ago from shopping…didn’t buy much, cause I am low on the funds for this month…but it was nice to get out and about.

    Hi Diz!!!! Missed you!!!

    How is everyone doing?

  346. Anzia said

    DebS- Boy do i hear you on that point. I just found out that i have to get another christmas present for my sister because my damn dad won’t let her have what i bought her. I went to shopping to look and try and figure something out…*sigh*

    So, the panic button is now stuck on the “on” position…I am totally freaking out about my non-job status and bill payment…i’d love to just bang my head against the wall but i don’t think that’d be too productive…besides, i still have a headache (four days now…) am I allowed to breakdown yet?

  347. Vicki said

    Hey all…

    Went shopping today too Deb…I was buying wallpaper..I am redoing the downstairs and both bath rooms…Lord Help me..>!!! HEHEhe

    Claire..I am sure Nikki will like it..but you have to scroll down to see him..

    Well..the Steelers are losing ..and I am bummed,,,I shall do laundry….

    That shows how desparate I am!!!

    Anzia – dearheart, don’t bang your head on the wall if you have a headache. But do let off some steam in some other way.
    We’re here for you. Just let us know if there’s something constructive we can do. Otherwise, we have some dandy shoulders to cry on and will keep you in our prayers.

  349. Anne said

    New topic is up at https://msgypsy.wordpress.com/2008/01/06/i-havent-been-feeling-sociable-lately/

    As I explain there, I’m not feeling terribly sociable at the moment. As usual, if you need to bring something to my attention, you can email me at ms.gyspy@gmail.com because I’m not watching the blog or the huge email list as closely as I probably ought to.

    Gotta get sewing again. Sigh! Back soon, I promise.
