Hiatus Over

Well, after taking a four week hiatus, I've decided it's time to post again. I'd hoped that the break would give me a chance to fill my mind with inspiring, insightful ideas that I could share with you all in the hopes that we may better ourselves (holding back a snicker). Unfortunately, it seems that my quest has been fruitless, and for that, I must blame American Idol.

This year I've gone from being an AI viewer, to being an all out Fangirl. Am I embarassed by that? Yes. Does it keep me from telling everyone? No.

I guess it's that hometown thing. You see, Kris Allen is from Arkansas, and I live in Arkansas. I figure that since everyone in Arkansas is supposedly "related", he must be a distant cousin or something.(That's a joke, btw)You've got to admit, Arkansas is widely misunderstood. But, seriously, there is a strong feeling of kinship in the state and we look after our own. GO KRIS ALLEN!

Apart from team spirit, the kid is amazingly talented. It also doesn't hurt that he's super kee-yewt! (I wrote that just to embarass my daughter)And, as a writer friend of mine pointed out, he has the same mannerisms as my favorite character in my current WIP (work in progress). How can I not vote for him!

Oh! During my hiatus I did manage to get two short stories accepted for publication. So, I guess I did accomplish more than just waisting cell phone minutes on voting.
