It’s Fried-Brain Friday

I’m so thankful it’s Friday. Aren’t you?

Welcome to “It’s been one of those weeks.” In fact, it looks like October is going to be one of those months.

But my followers want to see three posts from me each week. This is what I’m told by Social Media Jedi Master Kristen Lamb. Or if you don’t want to read them, I need to post them so Google thinks I’m alive and well.

And they’ll give me better consideration during searches.

Whatever.

I don’t really care about that so much when my brain is fried. I’ve got two speaking events to plan for (and the thought of the second one makes me nauseous).

Plus I’m supposed to be writing.

So, today I’m offering the first (of many) Fried-Brain Fridays. I’ll post a couple videos that might make you smile. Or maybe feel warm and fuzzy.

Or if nothing else feel grateful they didn’t have smart phones with video cameras when you lived your Most Embarrassing Moment.

And in case you’d rather have some cuteness. Or can relate to falling asleep however and wherever, I give you kittens.

Wonder Woman in Vegas

Wait a minute! Didn’t I just post about how Wonder Woman despises Las Vegas? I mean so much so that she wouldn’t even join me for a few moments by the pool.

Yep. I haven’t changed my story.

No matter what it sounds like according to the headline.

She wouldn’t set foot on the melty-hot pavement of The Strip. She did enjoy a few flyovers of the well-lit city after the sun went down.

They can see that place from outer space.

The last evening of our trip while my husband and I were walking off the excess chicken alfredo penini dinner we’d enjoyed, I ran smack dab into our gal Wonder Woman.

And laughed.

Because I knew the chances of her stepping inside this casino were astronomically high. Even if she needed to apprehend a criminal.

Because everyone knows once you step inside a casino you’re stuck like a rat in a maze.

No need for her to swoop in and save the day.

Let casino security handle it.

So what did I see that made me laugh? This:

A Wonder Woman Slot Machine

When we walked by, there was a couple playing at one of the four stations. I had to stop because they were playing video clips from the Lynda Carter television series.

One of them involved the quick-change twirl and flash that transforms plain Diana into Wonder Woman. I could watch this all day long.

But look at the board and what you’re trying to match up?

Not that I know anything about slot machines (or gambling in general), but I got a kick out of this little Wonder Woman island in the middle of a great big casino.

A casino she would never enter.

So of course I snapped a photo (or four). I couldn’t wait to post proof that she had indeed landed in Vegas. Inside the casino at the Luxor.

Do you think she laughed when she saw the photos?

I’m pretty sure she called her lawyer or her press agent or someone like that.

Sold out to a slot machine. Those were the words she used.

Wonder Woman Wild? I don't think they want to see that

Whoops. Maybe I shouldn’t have laughed about that.

Or taken pictures.

Or posted them online.

Whoops.

It doesn’t mean anything. Our gal Wonder Woman despises Sin City. And someone is going to pay for using her face and name without permission.

Sure wouldn’t want to be that guy.

Ready for Romance?

To Get Me To YouTo Get Me To You by Kait Nolan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This romance gets a solid 4.8 out of 5 stars from me.

Nolan writes in a way that draws me into the story. Even though these character experiences were far out of my realm of experience, I felt them. I believed them.

Now that I know the characters of Wishful, MS, and I’m ready to return to the town again and again.

It was interesting to start the story with the male lead, Cam. I think the author did this to introduce us to Wishful because the town is as important to the story as any of the characters. Cam isn’t the typical alpha male. He’s the kind of guy girls should wish to meet and fall in love with: caring, protective, passionate, responsible. Yeah, handsome helps too.

Norah, a high-powered marketing executive in the Windy City, lives a life far away from my normal world. However, I completely relate to her family background, since my parents also divorced. She is the alpha character in this book, but finally realizes that needing someone else can be a good thing.

I don’t read erotic romances, generally because I don’t need to have sex scenes spelled out for me. I’ve got a great imagination, so focusing on the inner thoughts more than the outer happenings is my preference for these interludes in a book. They were short and rare, so I could skim and still enjoy the tension they brought to the story.

This is an excellent contemporary romance. The town and minor characters came to life for me, making the story that much more enjoyable.

If you want to laugh, cry and feel like happily ever after is a real thing, this book is for you.

Yes, this was a cheap way to fill my post for the day. Come back next week for sage (or cheeky) words about family or writing.
