Up to my eyeballs

Captain's Log, Stardate 02.22.2006

Just a short blog today (and posted massively late). I'm busy with Genesis stuff and some critiquing I need to get done for my Story Sensei critique service.

Book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway (WEB OF LIES) is here.
My Monday book giveaway (A FAMILY FOREVER) is here.
You can still enter both of them. Just post a comment on those blog posts.
On Thursday (tomorrow), I'll draw the winner for WEB OF LIES and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

Bible in 90 Days: Day 44. Haven't read today yet. I'll get to it later. I'm about to head into Song of Songs. I have read this book several times and never gotten it. The imagery just flies right over my non-Hebrew-culture-educated head. I should probably get a commentary or something on it so that I can understand it, at least.

Writing: Went through my Maass workshop notes yesterday and did some "stretching" of my protagonist. I hope to get some work done tonight, too.

Diet: I did okay yesterday but not great. I snacked too much in the afternoon because I was starving--I have to stop eating too-small meals that make me feel hungry after only 3 hours. I did have some self-control for dinner--I had a huge salad and limited myself to one small plate of pasta, but I think I still ended up at 1800 calories. Sigh.

Lunch today was a healthy chicken vegetable soup (500) and a small slice of cheese (100). I also snacked on a little veggie chips (100). Dinner will be leftovers, so hopefully it won't be too much food. I'm usually better at portion control when it's leftovers.


  1. Hey lady!

    I hear ya about Song of Songs. Some think it's a picture of God's love for Israel, or Christ's love for the Church. However, being a single woman, I'm hesitant to believe either "picture," since I'm loathe to consider my Father's love or my Brother/Lord's love as ... well, you know. So I read this book and take it to mean just what it means. Solomon is in la-huv, baby! He's dottling over one of his many loves. It's a beautiful book of romantic poetry, but for a real picture of how God loves Israel, I'd wait for the book of Isaiah, or Jeremiah. God's anguish over the loss of His beloved people is heartbreaking. And as for how Christ loves the Church? Well, there's plenty of other "pictures" in the Bible that show that much more accurately than Solomon's Song of Songs.

    Just my wee contribution to your conundrum. (Is that how you spell that?) Oh, and I cracked up at the moose, meese, meeses thing. Have you ever found out how to say/spell the plural version of moose? (I think it's just moose. But I like meese much better.)

    : )

    love ya!

  2. Hi Camy! Just wanted to say hi! He he. Oh, you know being hungry in 3 to 4 hours is good. Means you didn' overeat. I keep hearing more smaller meals are better than big meals. I'm still trying to figure that one out. LOL!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group. If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group . I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me.

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
