It's Not Over

Today's Quote:

"You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself."

~~Ethel Barrymore

Well, in that case, I grew up at a very young age...I had to learn to laugh at myself...I had to learn how to not be so sensitive. What's your take on this quote?

Hey Everyone!!!

So I've been informed that the 40 Days Of...AKA Lent...Goes from Ash Wednesday...The day I started....Until Easter Sunday. Hey man!!! I've been robbed. LOL.

Eh, I guess one more week won't kill me, right? Hey, I'm a Virgo. It's my right to always be indecisive. LOL.

So you'll have to put up with me for another week, but I may just blog daily just for the funk of it...

Did I ever mention that I'm one of those sappy hopeless romantics that loves a good romantic movie or book (With a happy ending of course. I nearly had to throw up watching the Notebook...Don't ask.)?


Well, it's true and that is why I stick to horror movies and books.

Romance that you see made in a Hollywood basement and in books are not real. Why do you think writers write these things??? Because they only wish they could have someone that was romantic towards them. You wanna know what's the closest thing to romantic?

When your man buys you a scratch-off, or when he gives you money for no reason, or when he takes you out to the movies, and maybe even out to dinner. That's as close as you'll get...

But it doesn't happen all the time...Especially not in this economy...So, a gal like me can dream...*sigh*

Yes, I just watched a movie recently through Netflix, and yes I've been watching it over and over...Well, just until Monday. I'm waiting on my 95 year old movie to come in the mail...

This movie was made in 1918, or as they said back then...Nineteen hundred and eighteen. I just heard them saying something like that on a recording in the 1920's

Listen Here

Ironically Prince wrote about kissing Valentino in a dream...He then passed the song on to the band the Bangles for their hit that you still hear till this day Manic Monday...Bizarre.

Okay, I'm rambling now.

Still doing good on my diet. Haven't eaten much today anyway...That's a good thing. LOL.

Been doing some writing. Actually I've been writing on several different stories. Every time I get stumped, I move on to the next story. LOL. At the rate I'm going, I should be done in no time. LOL

I will see you all on day 40...

Fact & Fiction

Today's Quote:

I think what they mean by it is sometimes we could be feeling hurt, and we use words that can hurt others. It's important to think before you speak. That's my take...What's yours?

Hey Everyone!!!

Well, with the exception that I'm working on the cover yet again of my book (The pixels are all wrong. Sometimes it's so hard making digital pictures that look good.), it is published and ready to purchase.

I believe I mentioned that if you have Amazon Prime, you can download the book for free, but I made the price really cheap...$5.00 US currency. Not too bad.

Here's the link:

If you do download, I hope you like it. :)

I wrote many of those poems and prose a long time ago. Since then, I have written new material. I hope to make another poetry/prose book again soon. Right now, I'm working on short stories and getting my table of contents all ready to go.

Today was a good day. No junk food and no food after 8 tonight. I am doing well. There is only 3 more days to go until the 40 Days over.

To tell the truth, I don't know if I ever want to go back to my old eating ways. I feel so much better these days knowing I don't have all those toxins in my body. It feels good. Now I just need to make the time to exercise like I was doing before Andy fell sick.

I will find it and get back to business here soon. Sometimes things take a bit of rearranging, but I think I manage well. :)

I hope you all had a great day, and I will see you on day 38!

Today's Quote:

"God is not a cosmic bellboy."

~~Harry Emerson Fosdick

I guess it means we tend to demand from a higher power rather than ask for it....I'm guessing. IDK. How about you? What's your take?

Hey Everyone!!!

Oh my. So today, I decided to create a new blog page. Silly me....I just decided to change the URL address on here. This will now be the official blog of D. Ana Jay. My new pen name.

So, I didn't like what I published and I fixed it. I added a table of contents to the venue. I'll let you know when it's up.

Those that have a Kindle and have Amazon Prime can get the book for free. If you don't have Prime, then it's $5.00. I tried to make it as cheap as possible because of how life can be sometimes....


My blonde moments, my dad used to call me a yo-yo because I would bounce back and forth and back and forth...I guess some things never change...LOL

I didn't do any writing today except for the blog that you are seeing.

I think I just needed a break and I shall resume back to my writing again tomorrow...Or maybe later on tonight. I haven't decided.

So far my diet is going well. Still no junk food. And I actually stopped my food intake after 7. I found a recipe online where you can bake strawberries or something like that. When I figure it out, I'll let you know.

Not much more to report here. I'll see you on Day 37...
