Something borrowed, something blue....

Something old, something new.....yada yada yada. We've all heard that lame old line before. Heck, I even painted my toes blue when I got married so I wouldn't jinx myself. Still happily married, FYI. Guess it works.

But does it apply to writing?

Presently, my pajama bottoms are blue and I borrowed my husband's cup cuz I didn't feel like getting a new one. And old? Well, my sense of humor. I still say bomb diggity.

This all started because I went to a wedding last week...so much fun cuz I'm a woman and we love that crap.

It was near Lake Michigan and when I arrived I was trying to get directions to the place from a friend, (I left mine at home, oops) and she had no idea how to tell me how to get there...... until I mentioned I was at an intersection with a cherry orchard on one side and a huge pile of boulders on the other. Oh, once I told her that... well then we were cookin' with gas!

In my pursuit of self promotion, I'm still looking for directions. Hate to say it, but I'm a typical woman. I need landmarks. And there are no landmarks for promoting oneself as a writer. You know like that stinkin' Staples 'Easy' button in the commercials?

What a crock.

I am still trying on all kinds of things, to see what works. Much like trying on wedding dresses. Since I've already got old, blue and borrowed (yikes that sounds a bit naughty) I needed new.

So how about a new blog name?

I often stay up late so instead of watching HBO Real Sex or Golden Girls and Nanny re-runs, why not blog at night? Or more accurately at midnight.....see where I'm going now?

And I often ramble, just ask my husband.

So why not call my blog Midnight Ramblings.

I am thinking of interviewing a few victims. . . er, I mean authors in the next few weeks. It could be fun. I'm nosey by nature so I will have to pose a few questions they won't see coming. Keep it interesting.

I don't think I came full circle with my wedding analogy, but its midnight and I'm sleepy. And I'm.....wait for it.....rambling!


Don't hate me...I'm just super original like that.
