NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

April Showers Bring May Flowers. . .


When they wrote that little ditty, I'm pretty sure they meant "rain" showers, not "snow" showers like we've been getting! I know. Whine, whine, whine.

Speaking of whining, I've been far too friendly with cheese enchiladas over our so-called spring, and I now need to clean up my eating habits before my next singing shows at the end of May. I really want to wear some of the awesome cocktail dresses I bought last summer, which means I need to break-up with Ol' Mexico and Don Pablos and hook up with The Eat-Clean Diet and my Stepmill. (Purchased for a steal of a price a few years ago at a second-hand exercise equipment store and currently being used as a spider condo in the basement. Icky!) But I have a fantastic motivator . . . Being the egotistical Diva that I am, if I reach my goal by May 22, Peter said he will buy me a new pair of eye-popping boots for the show. How cool are these?!?


My feel hurt just looking at them. But I just looooove platform boots!!!! I always thought Stevie Nicks looked so great in them. To say nothing of my idol growing up as a wanna-be rock star: Paul Stanley of Kiss.

There. I've stated it in public. Now if I don't get my cool new boots next month, I'll have to admit that I reverted to my old habits and failed miserably. And my alter-ego, The Diva, can't be having any of that! :-)

Don't worry though. This plan still requires a trip to the bookstore. I have to buy the new exercise and eating plan books. I can work the bookstore into anything!

Have a great day, everybody!

Mmmm, cheese enchiladas. I miss the Tex Mex ones I used to enjoy so much. The North Carolina cheese enchiladas just aren't hittin' on much.

Love those boots! You could kill someone with those. Not that you would...but you could.

Wow - Stevie Nicks and Kiss - brings back a lot of memories :)

A plan is always great when it lets you wind up at the bookstore!!

Andi ~ Hopefully it won't be myself that I kill on those heels! But with some of the drunks at those bars we're singing in, it's nice to know there's a weapon handy. Not that I would use it. . . ;-)

Kara ~ I know. My age is so totally showing! But there's just nothing like Stevie and Kiss now. Or Blondie or Donna Summer or Duran Duran or . . . That's why we play all that kind of stuff at my Diva shows. It's such fun!

I was gonna comment something clever, but the half-naked KISS dude made me forget what it was.

J. Kaye ~ Paul in is prime was something else, wasn't he? Too much plastic surgery has made him look beyond scary now, but I love those old photos! I was hoping to find one of him in his Love Gun-era boots, but this one had to do in a pinch. :-)

It's snowing here too. :( As a South Texan girl at heart, I am beyond horrified. And very, very whiny. lol Snow should only fall in May if you live in the southern hemisphere.

Eva ~ Amen to that! :-)
