Friday Musings

Hot Damn It's Friday!  This week flew by so much my brain thinks its Wednesday.  Ever have one of those weeks?  Anyway, I wanted to share a few things with you that have been on my mind lately.

Friday Funny
I saw this a few months back and every time I look at it, it makes me laugh all over again. I have not yet seen Skyfall. But I will soon. :) 


The Healthy Writers Club

I signed up to participate in the healthy writers group.  I notice that when I work out, it frees my mind to focus on plotting.  Working out helps with my stress and managing life.  I use to work out for diet and managing my weight.  Now I focus on releasing my stress which helps tremendously with writing.  My typical workout is four times a week and the majority of that consists of me running about 12+ miles per week.  My vices are chips, salsa and wine.  Damn!  Oh, well.  I'm trying.  Special thanks to Shallee McArthur for creating such an awesome meme.

Neil Gaiman - Calendar of Tales


Gaiman gets the notion of connecting with readers. I love this project he's working on. Gaiman says to click here to "download a free PDF of all twelve of the stories I wrote in three days of madness."

Fred got busted on the my daughters peace bean bag and I had to laugh.  I guess it is kinda like a dog bed.

  
Be sure and stop by and visit Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too.

Have a great weekend.

Fred looks comfortable!
That's what I like about working out as well - I can clear my mind of everything else.

I love the James Blond photo! :) And Fred does look pretty comfy.

LOL at Daniel Craig. He's hot though so the h8ters can hate.

Gwen Gardner said...

James Blond, lol! That's funny.

I joined the Healthy Writer's Club, too, but I haven't been participating. Maybe Monday!

Fred is so cute! Our dogs are allowed on the furniture (it's all covered) - just not my pillow, lol!

Mina, I love Fred - he should pose wherever he pleases! Oh, and for petes sakes please get rid of that awful pic of MY MAN Daniel Craig. Ick!! Is that really his hair there?? Wine a vice? Never! Wine unlocks the vice of life that drags you down :)

Angela Brown said...

Had to laugh at the Blond, James Blond. The hair is just...rich!

Please don't toss a vampire plushy at me, but as much as I admire Neil Gaiman, I have yet to read something of his *ducks now*

I am however, going to rectify that very soon :-)

Fred just wants to give peace a chance, and look doggy-good while doing it :-)

Love meeting a fellow runner! I run the equivalent of a 5K, five times a week. Exercising keeps me healthy and makes it more comfortable to write all day. (I'll probably take a break soon to do some yoga.) Then, back to writing.

That James Blond pic really cracked me up laughing

mshatch said...

oh dear, I'm afraid that is NOT a flattering style for Mr. Craig, lol.

michelle said...

Ouch! That hairstyle does nothing for Mr. Craig.
Get rid of it. LOL
Fred is adorable as per usual!

Elise Fallson said...

I so want to curl up with Fred on that bean bag and talk smack about James Blond. And I loved the Neil Gaiman clip, shared it on fb. (: And go you for running and staying healthy! I have a weakness for chips too, and about 1000 other things, lol!

Tammy Theriault said...

thanks for the laugh...so needed. it's rainy out so seeing blond bond is great

Medeia Sharif said...

Working out also clears my head.

I want to see Skyfall. I loved the first two movies with Craig.

Ciara said...

I can't do anything without a good workout. It defiantly clears the head.

Mark Murata said...

I think the wig would look better on Pierce Brosnan. Actually, that could lead to a whole alternate universe of Bonds.

Carla said...

The plugin crashed for me so have to look at it later.

Fred you are a handsome devil! You are looking regal there on your throne!

Lexa Cain said...

Aww, your dog is so cute on that bean bag chair! You work out four times a week? Wow! I'm very impressed. :-)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Blonde . . .LOL!

Fred looks comfy comfy. There's a puppy rule at our house. If it's on the floor, it's free game.
