Happy Burn's Day--wonder if I can find a haggis anywhere around here??


OK here are my new beautiful glasses!! They are so comfortable I don't feel like I'm wearing anything at all :) More Plain Jane than bestselling author, but hopefully Plain Jane with style... :D


And here are all the 'bits' on my desk. Please note that just my word file is open on the computer! No email or internet. And if you zoomed in you could see my messy handwriting, that drives my dad crazy 'cos he can't read it!!!

My desk isn't too bad--there's Suz's book full of stickers marking turning points, and a general accumulation of notes.

Not too bad considering :)

  1. Oh Lordy - desk looks pretty good compared to mine - I'm still not finished.

    Rushing around getting my blogging done - I skipped down to you, aren't you impressed? Bailey messed up my schedule and I'm due to leave in approximately 30 minutes and you're near the bottom of my bookmarks ('cuz you're an "r"), so I stopped at Joely's and then skipped down to you. Even if you are anonymous.

    Like the glasses. :)

  3. Pretty snazzy I must say. My desk is spotless, but that's only because of my husband's OCD ggg

    LOOKS GOOD!

  5. Very nice glasses. I like. And your desk is nowhere near as messy as mine. Sometimes I can't even find the keyboard!

    Had a great day - now I'm tarred - can't ya tell, my accent gets thicker.

  7. Happy Burns' Day to you! I'm heading out to my first Burns Night Celebration this weekend and I can't wait for haggis! Got here through your post on Jill Shalvis's blog.

  8. Oh man! Y'all live in a better local than I do. Ask anyone here who Burns is and they will stare at you and ask if you meant the H.S..
    The glasses are great. Very simple, yet classy.
    My desk is taken over by my daughter for her Homeschooling, you are lucky to have one!

  9. Okay - I'm going to assume this might have something to do with Robert Burns? Or am I being a complete idiot Southern Belle?

  10. Snort--Eve weren't you born in Idaho or somewhere???

    Brandy--commiserations on the loss of your desk!! I rule mine with a rod of iron and Dora only comes out of her CD pack about once a month!!

    Thanks for admiring my glasses :D It was really sunny here today and I drove all the way to the shops squinting, only to bat myself on the back of the head when I realized I had my sunglasses attachments in the car!! I drove in sunglasses--how cool is that! Der!

    Hi Christine!! Nice to see you!!!

  11. Yeah - I was born somewhere - what of it? Iowa haggis breath - Iowa! And don't you forget it.

    I went to a bookstore without kids, na nanny booboo.

  12. Eve--Iowa, Idaho? ??? There's a difference? I'm kidding! Robert Redford lives in Idaho :D

    Yes it was Robbie Burns BTW.

    And I still don't know what an R is??

  13. R - your blog's name is Romance Writing Mom - so you are listed in the "r's" alphabetically - which means you are near the end of the bookmarks and I have this thing about going down the list in order. I tried to just do it from my links - but even then you are in the "t's" next to Tori. Maybe I'll just re-name you Anne so you can be at the beginning. :)

    I have a button that says "I'm from Iowa - it's a state and we don't grow potatoes".

  14. Like the glasses, Toni! Glad they're comfy - I need to get mine adjusted. They're leaving big dents on the side of my face!

    My desk is a disaster right now. Since I've been using my laptop to write, it's sort of been neglected.

  15. Eve, my middle name is Ann, so's my sisters and my daughters and my mom's called Ann--it'll work ;-)

    Hey I'm married to an Irishman--don't knock potatoes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Moi knocking potatoes? As the grand-daughter of John O'Connell who never let a meal go by without potatoes; as someone who's idea of a really dream meal is a big bowl of potatoes (oh, Bebo would laugh at this one) - I am the LAST person to knock that spectacular gift of nature. The joke refers to the fact that when you tell 75% of the people that you are from Iowa, the first words out of their mouths are "Oh, potatoes!" No, corn - Idaho is potatoes.

    Hmm, Ann - I think there's a way to re-name bookmarks. That would put you right after Rene (A little cheese with that whine).

  17. Hey Haggis Breath - I forgot and went down to the "r's" and then had to go all the way back up to the "A's" - you weave me awone! *g*

  18. You didn't confuse me - I did! I just said leave me alone because I knew you were going to laugh at me. It's weird having you clear up here on the list.

    Don't want to go to work tonight!!!!

    Gotta make this quick since I'm at work (giggle). Peggy just signed into my blog as anonymous (snort, snort) - someone took your name *ggg*

  20. LOL--how to confuse the wicked!!

  21. Really, really bad couple of days - I've needed this little bit of levity. There are days when I just want to curl up into a ball in a corner. But no - I'll put on the "happy" face tomorrow - or maybe I'll just sleep. Sometimes I just need to do that. Anyway, anonymous, thanks for playing with me today. :)

  22. Eve--take heart--life is hard sometimes, and I'm sorry for that.
