Michael Jackson

I watched the Memorial on tv today. I was doing fine until Brooke Shields speak and Usher perform. After that, I pretty much cried through the rest of the service. I am and always have been a fan of MJ. I just wanted to say REST IN PEACE, MICHAEL. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE GIFTS YOU BROUGHT TO MY LIFE.

What have I been doing?

Well, I recently started writing reviews for Fallen Angel Reviews. I love it! I can't wait until my probationary period is up. Then I will be able to review more than 2 books at a time.

I have also come to the conclusion that I a step away from bankruptcy. I can't win for losing sometimes. I try to pay everything on time, then a bill will come up out of the blue (that I forgot needed to be paid) and I will end up paying out more than I make every two weeks. I am looking for a part-time job now. My current job is 8-5 but I am willing to work from 6-11 on weekdays and anytime on weekends and holidays. I mean who wouldn't want to hire me? I'll tell you who: Wal-Mart! It's enough to drive a body to drink!

I am trying to think of anything I own that I can sell for some quick cash.

Sex in books

I have to admit, I am from the school of "the more, the merrier". If I pick up an erotic book, I want to be made to feel like reaching for my B.O.B. I have never understood why someone would pick up an erotic/erotica book and then complain that there was too much sex and not enough story. Is there such a thing as too much sex?

I am not ashamed to admit that Laurell K Hamilton is one of my top 5 authors...but that's for another post.

I am a single 31 year old woman. Somedays the sex in the books is what gets me through this rough patch I'm going through. When you don't currently have a significant other on the horizon, it can get a little lonely, if you know what I mean.

BTW, my name's Nickie and it has been nice meeting you.
