  1. I don’t think real “alternative” women do things like enter into pageants. And only hot chicks could get away with the stupid things those girls said to you at the event (about no having an opinion, etc.).

    Very excited to be a winner in the book contest. Looking forward to getting my copy of the book when it’s ready.

  2. Sorry to hear that Judy isn’t feeling well 🙁 I hope she feels better soon.

    So, the proof copy of your book is still out there, somewhere, undelivered? I can totally understand why you would be frustrated about that.

    Hmm… when you said that Foundry Road led you astray (and you liked it), you ended up at a strip club. So, I was really wondering where you ended up when Thorium Girl led you astray (and you liked it). An alternative beauty pageant? I didn’t even know those things existed. Seems like you had some fun after the show, though, with all those women talking with you.

    Nice rant! 😀 Nice use of the F-bomb in your rant, (that I am glad you didn’t decide to edit out). Sometimes, that word is just necessary. 😉

    The backwards stuff all sounds like Swedish to me. lol 😀 Those were entertaining!

    Yay, Shawn and I are winners of the book contest! Thank you, so much! Super excited to get started reading your book.
