Yet another picture. This one is of Lissa Merriman on my right and Deborah Elliott-Upton on my left.
Lissa is multi-talented. She can do it all. fiction, Non-Fiction, and even Greeting Cards. Besides she is a huge hockey fan and a lot of fun to be around. Debbie pens a weekly blog which you can find here on Criminal Brief. On top of being a mystery author she also does non-fiction, screen plays and she is one heck of a teacher. I took a short story class from her several years ago and found it to be very helpful in all of my writing. A link to Deborah's personal website can be found in my post entitled, Let the Fun Begin from last week.
Now for a rant. As I said earlier in the week I'm out of town right now. Staying at a Hilton in Houston, Texas. I did not choose this hotel myself. I am here the the Texas Postal Workers Union state conference. In order to use the internet here, I must fork over ten dollars a day. Yes a day. I normally pay ten dollars a month for service at home. granted that is dial-up and this is wireless, but still.
Way I figure it, my money is probably going to Paris's legal defense fund. At least indirectly I am contributing to her spoiledness. Is that a word? I can live without a lot of thing. for instance I have not purchased a single one of their six dollar Shiner Bocks while here. I just keep telling myself that adds up to thirty-six dollars a six pack and at the Golden Light I can buy a whole pitcher for four bucks on a week night and eight on the weekend.
My favorite DJ on Sirius satellite radio is a fellow named Mojo Nixon. He is crazy as all get out and not for easily offended, but recently he wondered outloud if Paris Hilton was named something else, such as Omaha Super-8 would we have to hear about her every exploit.? the obvious answer is no, and if I this hotel I'm at didn't have Hilton in the name you can almost be assured that I could get internet service for free, or close to it.
My rants over but here's your chance. Tell me about something about your day that got under your skin.
