Random Friday: Original Llama, Bearded Lady, Head Rush, Light Show and More

Happy Friday! Yay!!


So I went back to the pumpkin patch were the original llama “incident” occurred and he was there. Waiting for me. Mocking me.


But this time I took pictures as evidence in case he decided to get frisky with me again. Profile please.


He was not amused. Neither was I. We stared each other down. I cried like sissy bitch and ran for my life.

What? He’s scary.


I originally saw this book cover on Twitter. Mandi from Smexy Books tweeted it. Best title EVER! Nine naughty novelists got together and cooked this one up. You can get your copy for only .99 cents. They better sell a lot of these since they’re dividing 9 ways! Here’s the blurb:

Theirs was a love that nature never intended. Bigger than Texas. Hotter than Hades. Weirder than…a lot of other things you might have read about up until now.

Self-made zillionaire Rock Fangsworthy is your typical Texas cowboy…well, sort of. Typical in that the only thing this lethally sexy lady-charmer with the hair trigger temper loves more than his horse is his ranch, The Double Fang. Or maybe his boots. Less typical in the fact he’s also a four hundred year old vampire with a shocking secret—he can’t stand the sight of blood.

Buffi Van Pelt is just your average girl-next-door winery owner…or is she? The spunky single mom to twin boys also happens to be a winsome werewolf with secrets and troubles of her own. The winery that the gutsy good-girl recently inherited from her grandmother is on the verge of ruin. If Buffi can’t find a use for the mysteriously tainted wine before time and her pantry’s limited supply of red meat runs out, she and her pups will be left homeless, destitute and very, very hungry. Worse yet, her baby-daddy is the same hunky, bad-boy vampire rancher who’s out to steal The Best Little Winery in Bloodsuck from under her paws.

Once upon a time their passion flamed hotter’n a summer’s night in Dallas with three Cheerleaders and a side of habanero sauce. Tonight, love’s lightning might just strike them twice…but only if the wine don’t kill them first.


I found this a while back and forgot to share it with you. Ever wonder what your name would be if you were a character in a steampunk novel? Well wonder no more, you can generate yourself a steampunk name! I know you’re excited, try to take deep calming breaths and then head on over get’cher steampunk name. Don’t forget to come back and share your results.

Mine is: Princess Eliza Fairbeard.

Really? I picture myself like this with a name like that. I look nothing like this. I swear.

Carolyn Crane’s Head Rush, the 3rd book in the Justine Jones: Disillusionist trilogy was released this week in audio format. I haven’t gotten it yet, I may wait for the eBook release, I’m not sure. Can I wait? I love audio books…I’m tempted.


Breaking Bad. I’m addicted. And, I’m not even trying to be funny. I mean it, I’m obsessed with this show. I’m not up to date with it yet so don’t spoil me.


I love the cousins. They are so scary! (Yes, I know what happens to them)


And their boots are to die for…literally.


Walt and Jesse. I fear for them.


This is so cool. This house is not very far from where I live and I’m thinking we need to drive up and check this out up close and real-life like. Check out the rest of their YouTube channel for more.


That’s it for me folks! Have a happy Halloween!
