Life’s Crazy; Gotta Dash!

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Well, no writing steamy lesbian sex scenes for me today (at least, I can’t see it happening, what, with everything else on the to-do list…).

Instead, it’s CostCo, Sears, gym for me, swimming for the Offspring, bringing the Offspring to the Mater and Pater’s, grabbing a bite to eat, then off to our “Girls’ Night Out” event for the group of MILFs that we are. Hehehe.

(Oh, it’s not that scandalous… we’re going bowling. Although who knows what we might plan for a future GNO event?!)

Don’t worry, B.E., we’ll forego the male strippers. This time. ;)

Shh…Be Vewwy, Vewwy Quiet…

…I’m hunting Dates.

There are already two, count ‘em, two weddings on the social calendar for next spring. I’ve gone stag to the last few I’ve attended. This time, I’m bringing somebody with me.

Sadly, though, Orli’s not returning my calls. He probably thinks I blog about him too much. So I guess I’m going to have to find someone else.

I’m open to suggestions. :D

The Way Of The World

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

Agree with me or not, but it does a heart good to see a very kind, generous soul find the sort of happiness you know that person deserves.

It’s a good thing. It is. And in one’s less jaded moments one might think that the universe is functioning just as it should.

However, the only part of this loveliness that sucks deceased walruses is when that deserving person whose life has suddenly opened up to a new, wonderful realm of possibility is someone other than you.

Could be a new niche for Hallmark, don’t you think?

Boys, Books And Big Bucks

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

I’ve had a rather good day thus far. (This may actually be a bit of an understatement…)

Checking my mailbox, I found my very first royalty cheque! I’m so excited! I’m going to photocopy the thing, so I’ve got proof. :D I’m not rich, of course, but I’ll take it!

And then I got yet another amazing review for Seeing is Believing — this one from Phillipa Ann at RRT Erotic Reviews, who calls SiB “…absolutely sizzling!” Yeah!

And last but not least, my new toy has arrived! Yup, my brand spankin’ new MP3 player. Oh, I’m just itching to get this sucker charged and loaded. Heh. :D

But that’s not why you’re here, is it? You’re looking for some depth and substance from yours truly. Well, I promised, and now I’m hoping to deliver.

Slip away with me, if you will, below the cut…

Cyberdating Post Mortem

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

So it’s been about a week since I posted my profile on the dating site. Just to give you an idea of what sort of results I’ve had thus far, I thought I’d break down what I’ve received here.

  1. A total of 6 internal email messages.
  2. A total of 5 invitations to view extra pictures.
  3. A total of 27 “Hellos”.
  4. No total available for internal “instant messages” — the system doesn’t keep a running total of pings received, apparently, but I’ve had a few. And while I’m aware that it’s not the nicest thing to do, I’ve ignored probably 99% of them because one glance at the person’s profile has shown me that we’re not a match, for whatever reason. I’m not about to start chatting with someone who doesn’t appeal. Heartless? Perhaps. But I don’t want to encourage someone I’m not interested in. *shrug* That will only lead to lots of problems. And we all know I need more problems in my life… *snort*

Anyway. On the plus side, two possibles have been shaken out of the tree. As in, my curiosity has been piqued, but I can’t begin to make a call on either one, yet. We shall see.

I’m also going to tweak my profile in the next couple of days because I’m not entirely sure it’s appropriately representative of my personality. It’s a work-in-progress. Just like me. :) That, and possibly try and take some new pictures.

In other news, here’s today’s horoscope:

Unusual things will be very attractive to you today — your mind is eager for exploration, and your soul will be awakened by what it finds. People are often not what they seem to be at first glance. You know better than to judge a book by its cover, and today you’ll need to read a few pages before you get a complete idea of how breathtakingly attractive someone truly is. Do not miss this opportunity to know someone better.

“…how breathtakingly attractive someone truly is.”?? Whoa. Me likey the sound of that. I’m so game. C’mon, universe! Bring it on! I can take it…! :D

Hump Day Histrionics

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Actually, I’m not hysterical. I just liked the wee bit of alliteration.

Everybody heard about nekkid Harry Potter yet? Lemme tell you, this news caused some serious uproar in the Starr household today. The Mater and Pater were thoroughly disapproving. I’m on the fence. While I can see his desire to avoid being typecast, I think it may have been a tad soon to make this jump. And as mentioned in the article, I have to wonder how his parents felt about this. He is only seventeen, after all. One thing’s for certain, he’s definitely getting publicity out of it. What do you think?

***

I’m trying to think of a segue here, but while the obvious choice is the nekkid part, I’m choosing not to go there.

Bottom line is: Rella’s considering starting a dating pool for yours truly. As in, when is Kris going to go on her first date (be it online personals-related or otherwise)? (See? The nekkid part could work, but… ah, you know what I mean. :D ) I’m sorely tempted to say Go for it, and am even wondering what sort of prize to give to the winner, but do we really want to take my social life to that level?

The only drawback I can see is that you might have to wait a while to get results, gang… *snert*

***

Finally, in the good news category, I would like to take this opportunity and say just how much I love my editor. :)

I sent an email to him earlier, outlining a number of book ideas that I’ve been mulling over in my head. I hoped and prayed that he’d like at least one of them, maybe two, if the Good Lord was willin’…

And I received his response yesterday. For the most part, he was agreeable to all the ideas. (Admittedly, with some questions regarding a couple of them.) I have to admit I was shocked. And excited. So now I need to decide which one I will start on next month, once my current project is submitted. Yay!

So that’s all that’s new in the world of Kris today. How’s your Hump Day going?

Why Is It…

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

…that all the “comment” choices I have when sending a freebie “Hello” on the dating site are hokey?

Why should I have to settle for saying “I think you’re a hottie” when what I really want to say is “…you’re the most stunningly gorgeous man I’ve ever seen, and I could easily be convinced to bear your children.”?

I mean, really. Is that so wrong?

Sociology 101

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

It’s experiment time, Gentle Readers!

Your hostess with the mostess (er… that’d be me, gang) took the big ol’ plunge this weekend and jumped headfirst into the world of Online Dating.

*gulp*

We all know that I work from home and don’t get out much to meet new people, so I’m giving this a try just to see what happens.

So…I did post a profile on a popular Dating site*, and surprisingly enough, within 12 hours I was already getting noticed. I had probably three or four of the freebie “Hellos” that subscribers can send, and despite the fact that the profiles didn’t appeal to me at all, I did find it strangely heartening.

During the course of today, however, I have come to the conclusion that I must be slightly obsessive-compulsive, because I can’t stop popping onto the site to see if I have any new messages or “Hellos”. Must. Not. Click. Again. Gaaah!

I was also somewhat ballsy (well, okay, for ME this is ballsy behaviour — maybe not for YOU) and sent out a few of the “Hellos” myself, all the while thinking, WTF am I doing?? I must be crazy… However, I did get a response back from one of my “Hellos” and a very nice, lengthy email. So I replied to his letter. And that’s where that stands.

The part that niggles at me a little, though, is the whole “popularity contest” angle of it all. Truth be told, Gentle Readers, Kris was a major geek all through Elementary and most (if not all) of Secondary school. And it does feel a little like sending a note to the cute boy in your History class and finding out he’s not interested in you at all. (Not that I ever did that, of course…) And that, if one stops to think about it in any depth, does sting a little.

Speaking of ballsy, though, I did also send a “Hello” to probably one of the most drop-dead gorgeous men I’ve ever seen (well, at least in a photo). He is absolutely stunning. I will definitely let you know if I even hear anything back from him. Of course, he’s also in Toronto, so our paths would likely never cross, but then again, who knows, right?

Aaaaaanyway. That’s that, gang. I shall keep you all posted on this Soap Opera that is my — er, my AE’s — life.

*And no, sorry, I’m not giving out more details than that, I’m afraid. See, Kris and her alter-ego are too competitive, and if news about the AE were to trickle through here onto the Blog, well, Kris would most likely have a diva-ish hissy fit and refuse to write a single word until that hussy, AE, was out of the picture.

Hm. Maybe schizophrenic would be more accurate than obsessive-compulsive… :D

The Fickle Finger Of Fate

Sunday, December 10th, 2006

Remember This Boy?

I spent most of this weekend talking to said Boy via IM, and it has been very enjoyable. We think a lot the same way (which should tell you something and might also scare some of you :D ).

The Boy is also spending the holidays up here in Northern Canuckland.

Plans are being made.

You may not see much of me that week. And that’s all I’m sayin’. :D

And speaking of not saying much, Krugy did make an appearance (I know…not the best segue…). Check out the result here at Doug’s and then come back here and let me know what you think. ;)
