Saturday night is my Skype night with my RL friends now that we are scattered more across the US. We frequently do things in WoW as well. I was in a leveling mood so I suggested brand new alts on a new server. My friend Ashnew stated she’d never picked Horde side on a Panda to see how the joining that faction story went. So we went over to Trollbane to roll level 1 panda. I had a cute little hunter. Ashnew decided she’d try a mage (yes the warrior was going to try to pew, pew). Bluemoon made a monk (on ER she has one in her upper 80′s). We got through the Wandering Isle and introduced ourselves to Garrosh. The words from Ashnew was “he’s a dick.” I totally agree. Anyway it was fun hanging out with them.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Disclaimer: I received this book as part of the Tell Harlequin reader panel.
Overall a cute book. Very focused on Samantha and her problems with starting a chocolate festival to save her struggling chocolate business. Almost to the exclusion of other things, including the romance in the book. Early in the book she shows dreams of Samantha and her mother. This seems just to be word filler and added nothing significant to the story. In the end the relationship of Samantha & Blake seems rushed and insignificant. I found myself bored with their relationship. I’m more interested in the story of her sister Cicily and Todd Black and I’m awaiting her story. Though after reading Shelia Roberts‘s What She Wants (after reading this one) I am dreading that I will be disappointed.
Interesting that Harlequin is looking for new authors.
Finally a month behind the times we get to see what the Tier 13 DK looks like. It apparently had to go back because the first design did not come out well. I can only think that the first design was absolutely horrid, because this is a step up to “meh.” The title is “Necrotic Bone” and what can I say about that being an ICU nurse? Need more black… I’m beginning to think that no one in Blizzard’s art world picks up a medical photo book. There’s bone there, but it’s not necrotic. The official blog states they were trying to downplay the use of skulls. Well if you ignore the belt & the helm then they succeeded.
What’s going on with the purple & the green? Ugly if you ask me. The blue set is ruined by the brown section even though it got the blue glow to match the rest of the set. The red got the fiery glow to match that set as well.
You know? The more I look at it I go from “meh, I don’t care” to “Ugh, ugly.” Oh well, Tier 10 Transmog.

When I heard this is going to be made into a movie I knew I had to re-read this before the movie came out.
Stephanie Plum is at the end of her rope. She’s lost her job, her car’s been repossessed. The only job she can find is working for her Cousin Vinnie as a bond recovery agent. Her first assignment is Joe Morelli, the local bad-boy-turned-cop, who is wanted for murder.
This is a light hearted, action packed slightly mystery novel that’s a fun read.
Playing around. I have my blog available as a Book
I’m thinking about writing an eBook on the iPad usage because I get so many questions over it. I’m considering publishing options but I still don’t know if I’ll get the Book written yet.
