Back online

Sometimes being forced offline by a dodgy modem is a good thing. It gives you time to make hot cross buns with your youngest and read some of that book you have to be ready to discuss on Wednesday and check in with the other entlings...

Now we are reconnected to the grid, and I am stuffed with hot cross buns and See's dark chocolate Easter eggs. All I can manage is a quick click around my blog roll.

  • Elaine at Wild Rose Reader (corrected: warning: do not imbibe dark chocolate and blog) is featuring
  • Elaine says she Gregory K. at Gotta Book
I think poets are magicians. With exquisitely chosen words and phrases they impart more feelings and emotions than most folks can communicate in pages and pages of text and prose.

  • Fuse#8 has found the most disturbing video. I just purchased some Dick and Jane quilting fabric. I may never be able to look at it the same way again ... aaaack ...

  • Jen Robinson is also making Sunday visits and pointed me to Lectitans and the question of the week.

  • Kelly Fineman is writing in depth reviews of poetry books for National Poetry Month. Check them out for some excellent additions to your poetry collections.
  • Michele is still writing her "Who" novellas and finding time to post Friday poetry.

Compared to the productivity of my blogging friends I am feeling like a chocolate stuffed slug even though it was dark chocolate which is the healthy chocolate, full of healthy anti-oxidants.

  • Finally, if you have not heard "Not on the Test" by John Forster & Tom Chapin give this link a click. The TAKS test is two weeks away for high schoolers here in the Great State.

Welcome back! I'm envious of the dark chocolate Easter eggs. Self-sacrificing of you, to force yourself to down all of those anti-oxidants.

Dark chocolate and Hot Cross Buns - I have major envy issues now ! *grins*

I feel I ought to be shouting "Somebody stop me!", but you know what, I'm having way too much fun to want to be stopped from the whole fiction-writing thing! (Though I'm beginning to wonder slightly at what my brain is producing !) David Tennant and Russell T Davies have a lot to answer for, between them !

Thanks for the shout out. Now, if you'd be so kind as to pass me one of those dark chocolate eggs . . .

Camille,

Thanks for the shout-out for my original poems. As a novice solo blogger, I really appreciate it. I should let you know that I am truly more of a "sedentary rose" than a "rambling rose." The name of my new blog is actually Wild Rose Reader. I'm the eldest Blue Rose Girl by a couple of centuries!

Hoo boy, I really should not eat dark chocolate and blog. I have you on my blog roll for goodness sake. You must have seemed like a "wild thing" to my carbohydrated brain!

Thanks for the mention!

Camille,

One should always eat dark chocolate! I bet you would love CHOCOLATE DREAMS, a book of poems written by Arnold Adoff. It's probably out of print--but any woman worth her chocolate would search high and low for a copy of the book to savor...er, read.

I love Arnold Adoff. I will have to get Chocolate Dreams!
