You’ve got mail…

Before I delve into the mail….look at this luscious cover I got from the Ellora’s Cave Cover Gods for my pirate romance – Shiver Me – it’s amazing. These gods never disappoint.


Mail…

It’s been an interesting day mail wise…I woke up to one email that indicated I basically sucked but they were willing to help me if I worked very hard. They also expected more from me than other people did but if I worked with them my life would change. Hmmm…. well, this is how I see it – if I really ‘sucked’ why are you bothering to email me and offer help ? The effort to make me as you would like me to be would just frustrate the hell out of you, as while I can certainly adapt to new situations - I’m not going to change to fit your tight little mould. I emailed back very politely - No thanks, I have had other offers that indicate I don’t suck. But if later on if I do begin to suck badly then I will consider your generous offer to de-suckify me. Okay – maybe de-suckify is a made up word but I like it.

The next morning email was from a male I used to know… men, are so funny sometimes with what they think you need or are feeling. I was quite amused at the ideas, albeit it misspelled, including my name - Amarrindergee, how well you know me. I emailed back a missive that basically said ‘go away and have a nice life.’

Then at work, I got inundated by emails about someone who had written a blog about how pissed off they were at someone else. Now all the people that emailed me told me they believed it was me that the pissed off person was referring to. Probably. I have that habit. Anyway, they cut and pasted the blog and all the comments and sent it to me - dozens of times. Now whether it was about me, I don’t know as the people involved were smart enough not to name me for I am sure they would know I would have to refer the matter to my solicitor. What was it all about? Well, from what I read some ladies were cranky that I, allegedly, no longer had comments on my blog at
www.amarindajones.blogspot.com. I haven’t for quite a while now as most people email me if they are pissed off with my opinions and that’s fair enough. And yes, I always reply. Now last time I checked, whether I had comments or not was my choice - you know - freedom to choose what you do without following everyone else. Anyway - please note, due to these alleged cranky ladies, I have put comments back on www.amarindajones.blogspot.com - so go ahead – comment. Let’s see what they have to say - if they were indeed referring allegedly to me. For all of you on Facebook, Myspace etc where I post as well – if I get comments I will let you know and you can go see what all the fuss is about.

Now to people we no longer require on the planet….

A Texas woman has been convicted of capital murder for the death of her two-year-old daughter, who was whipped with belts, dunked in cold water and thrown onto a tile floor to teach her manners.

Okay - I'll start the comments...it's hot here in Brisbane and the tax dept. said I can now pay less tax...right - let's go from there

I'm game. The Texas woman will unfortunately remain right where she is as no one else in the universe will have her.

Anny Cook said...

Or, being in Texas, she'll end up on death row as they still have the death penalty--which I heartily support in all cases of child abuse/murder!

Regina Carlysle said...

Yep. I'll admit we have some sicko nutbags in Texas. Here, we will throw her in prison and she'll stay there for a long time. Unfortunately, killing a child isn't a capitol murder. Now if she kidnapped and/or stole something while in the act of killing, she would get a bye-bye shot of something nasty. I find it unjust that people who kill children often get a lighter prison sentence. I don't GET that.

Regina Carlysle said...

Forgot to mention, I ADORE your cover.

Brynn Paulin said...

Lovely cover. Cool pirate.
The woman in Texas deserves the walk to the chair...

Bronwyn Green said...

Wow - he looks almost exactly like Jack Sparrow! Awesome cover!

Amarinda Jones said...

Why thank you Brynn - how nice of you to say so and how sweet to hear from you - please don't be a stranger and make sure you always stop by as you know I do so enjoy hearing from you as your views always make me laugh for days

Amarinda Jones said...

Bronwyn - excellent to hear from you and yes, I love the cover but then I have always been lucky when it comed to EC covers...thank you so much and please make sure you too stop by again

Amarinda Jones said...

Yes Anny, she probably will be it will probably take years to kill the toe rag

Amarinda Jones said...

Thank you Reg - I love my pirate cover but then I always get exactly what I require from the cover people. They are amazing

Amarinda Jones said...

What can I say B? You're as game as Ned Kelly...but gee, I am a bit diappointed I did not get more commnters...probably busy do you think?

Sandra Cox said...

I can't even talk about the Baby Grace thing. It is just to upsetting. But I could ooh and ah about your cover for paragraphs. One of the best, if not the best I've seen. Just puts a smile on my face looking at it:)

barbara huffert said...

And speaking of Stepfordian...

Katie Reus said...

Killing a child isn't a capital crime?? The legal system here is ridiculous, but whatever, that's another issue all by itself.

I was surprised to see your comments section back but I'm glad :) Nice cover!! Makes me think of yummy Johnny Depp ;)
