TAG! You're IT!

My dear friend Christine has tagged me and it has taken me this long to realize what was going on. So here are the rules : Open the book nearest to you and open to page 123. Then post the 5th sentence. Very simple.

So, lets get started. The book closest to me is Accidentally Dead by Dakota Cassidy

With the fluid grace of a jouster, she rammed the Magic Marker like needle into Nina's leg, and
looking back a couple of seconds later, Nina wasn't sure hy she'd made such a fuss
This is Dakota's second novel in the "Accidental" series. The first was The Accidental Werewolf that had me laughing so loud that I had people staring at me to saying grrrrrrrrr whenever Keegan arrived on the page, he made me what to say "bite me, baby"
Here are the ones that I have tagged
Mel ... Movie Maven
Terri ... Terrises
I hate to say it...but I don't have five peeps to tagg. Does that mean I have to do the other myself???? I have plenty of books to go to.

Cemetery Love

I love to visit cemeteries. Many don't understand my fascination to visit them, but that is ok. To each his own. Although I do have a few sistah's from another mistah, (one in particular that could totally be my goto cemetery buddy for life...aka CBFL, u know who u are), that totally indulge me in my hobby. I find it to be a place of beauty and ugliness, quiet tranquility and screaming emotions. A place to visit during my life ON earth, but not somewhere I ever want to stay...does that make sense? Probably not, but when do I make sense? It was a gorgeous day and I could not resist stopping by and paying homage to my favorite spots. These pictures are some of my favorites spots that have caused me to stop and admire them

Meeting Melissa Marr

Originally uploaded by nsanchez69
My BFF Tricia and I went to Menlo Park to meet the wonderfully talented Melissa Marr. We had an amazing evening filled with alot of information and a great reading from Melissa. She was very warm and engaging and I was very happy to have finally met her. We are going to see her again next month at RWA. If anyone has the chance to meet her, do so and if you have not read WICKED LOVELY and INK EXCHANGE, then run and go out and get your books now. You will not be dissappointed.

Ahoy Matey!! Pirates Have Invaded My Hometown

Swords flashed and cannons roared on Father's day weekend. What better place to take your dad as you enjoy a swashbuckling day of pirate watching and wench calling. The weather was fantastic, the food bombastic and the black cherry cider... orgasmic. I cannot wait for next year. Anyone up for a great day should come to the Pirate Festival of Norcal, did i mention that it was FREE!!

This duo had amazing outfits. They got alot of attention during the event These guys got really into the theme of things. I love how the color red just popped.
Davey Jones looked so good, that he was very scary indeed.
I loved these outfits. The brocade coat was stunning Ok...I know I should NOT have taken this, but.....come on. How could I resist
