Maybe it’s me…maybe I’m not a team player…maybe I prefer to fight a smart battle with people who are willing to go into war and not sit and emote for hours over something that has happened.

“I’m at the point that if I have to go to jail for my rights, I will do it.”
Brave woman with a lot of guts. Stupid Judge protecting rapists. That's a crime. My total support goes to this 17 year old.

Shadows on Stone....out now...
When Russet McGinnis and Maxen Pryce take on the responsibility for a late-season archeological dig, their quest for more artifacts is cut short when an early nor'easter forces them to close down the project until the next spring. The flight home takes a sudden ominous turn as they encounter a strange swirling cloud bank that surrounds them despite Max's attempts to avoid it. Lost in the wilderness after their plane crashes, Max and Russet must depend on each other's love and courage to survive.
Their struggle for survival compels them to bare their hidden secrets and acknowledge their feelings for each other. Homesickness and potent irresistible desire draw them closer as they work together to survive abduction, inexplicable attacks on their plane, encounters with shape-shifters, and a wild ride in a goddess-driven tornado until at last they confront their true destiny.

So, I sat back, after reading the most anal series of emails from an accountant at work and I said to myself oh my god if a stick ever gets lodged that high and hard up my bottom as this twit who is sprouting off so many archaic rules - about what you shouldn’t do and what happens if you do and did you read paragraph 73a clause 12 about following rules, Amarinda, and don’t do this that or the other thing – particularly the other thing which we all know you just did because it’s wrong, not right, bad, naughty and worlds will collide and it will be all your fault Amarinda - then I swear I will give away all my Docs and become like a dull, colourless and boring accountant and buy a special chair with a hole in so the stick in my bottom is catered for.

…and I came back from lunch really, really late but in my defense, I was having lunch with a friend so that negates any onus on me to feel bad about wasting company time. No really, it’s the Amarinda Amendment 666. Look it up under United Nations>equality>friendship>late lunchabsolution. Would I lie?

"I have to go through and do some recalculating and figure out where we are. As soon as I deal with this week's releases, I'm going to handle this for you. I'm not ignoring you; I'm busy and I have other priorities. Once I sort everything out, I'll send you a statement as well as make certain you receive any monies owed. If you're using PayPal for royalty payments, you'll have whatever NRP owes you by the end of the week. If you've elected to receive a check, it'll go out in the mail before Friday."
Where's the money Jill? While I understand, from your authors, you like to be uncontactable, it's a professional business ethics to actually respond and honour what you say.

When I was a kid I always wanted to be beautiful and thin. As I grew up I realized neither of those were going to apply and I shrugged my shoulders and went ‘meh’. Today, at boot camp, I was doing wall climbs. I hate wall climbs. Why? Because they’re hard. I’m not going to say I love the challenge and it makes me a better person because wall climbs don’t and I’m not into all that pyscho-new-age bullshit about finding yourself through pain. Puh-lease.The thing is I fell into the sand from the wall. No, I didn’t hurt myself because firstly I'm invincible but more importantly I landed on my arse. Now the point to my story is this – yes - exercise is good. Do it. Benefit from it but if I did not have a fat arse I would have been in pain on falling. So, do not lament over your curves or what you think you lack or what you think you should look like. You will always make up for it somewhere else and in this case a fat arse saved me. Spare a thought for the skinny Minnies who have no fat. When women with curves we fall, we rebound. We rule.
Video clips like this remind me how lucky we are as women and how much we forget that and the struggle of other women. We can go to the mall and we can wear nail polish without being in fear or having to justify who we are as human beings.
I don't know...is America setting an example for the entire world at the moment when it comes to women's right? I don't think so.
