Latin Night!!!!

It's Dancing With The Stars night, and more importantly it's Latin Night.

Disclaimer: I don't dance. I don't know anything about dancing, which doesn't stop me from loving and sometimes hating certain dance routines.

Rumor and Val - (Salsa) Nicely done. Apparently Rumor's whoo ha is a deadly weapon, but no blood was spilled.

Charlotte and Keo - (Rumba) Bruno just called her dumb but pretty (he thinks I'm pretty *flutters eyelashes*). I loved the song.

Michael and Peta - (Salsa) (Pitbull!!!!) Michael didn't break her. That's a good night.

Riker and Allison - (Salsa) Who is this kid???? He brought the sexy!!!! I feel dirty.

Suzanne and Tony - (Salsa) I hope I can salsa at 68. The woman can shake her moneymaker.

Chris and Witney - (Tango) I like the song and I'm a fan of the no-shirt-tuxedo. Tossing a twirling girl in the air and catching her on the way down is impressive.

Robert and Kym - (Rumba) My favorite Shark. Now I'm a fan of the no-jacket-tuxedo. He's buff. And sensitive. Don't get me started on how charming he is or how adorable they are together.

Patti and Artem - (Cha-cha) I love love loved her costume, the color and cut. She looked amazing.

Willow and Mark - (Paso) Fire and Ice.

Noah and Sharna - (Tango) WOW! Well done.

Nastia and Derek - (Samba) Me like. Primal.

To sum up the evening, there were plenty of bare, hairless man chests. It was a good night.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

I loved this sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel!

I wish wish wish I could have watched the original and the sequel back to back. I love Sonny (Dev Patel). He reminds me of my son. And even if he didn't, he is fun and funny and adorable (like my son). And handsome (also like my son). His dialogue was charming. Maggie Smith's character (Muriel) remained brutally honest to the end. Not a bad thing.

Yes, I pretty much knew what was going to happen, because they dropped hints like bombs, but I enjoyed the journey. I smiled a lot and chuckled a few times. Watching warm weather movies depicting exotic locations when it's cold outside is always a treat. The movie had romance and lovely visuals and music and dancing and an upbeat message.

What would I have changed? I would have swapped Richard Gere (Guy)  and David Strathhairn's (Ty) roles, although David was great in his role. Actually, I thought Richard Gere was wrong for the movie. Sorry. But that might just be me.

I Love DWTS!

I missed week one (season 20 - can that be right?) of Dancing With the Stars :(

So I'm playing catch up with My Jam Monday. As always, I don't know who some of these "stars" are. I will be spending the next few weeks getting to know everyone.

Who am I rooting for? I love Kym and Robert (he is my favorite Shark). Rumor and Val blew me away. Loved his impression of Bruce Willis. Michael and Peta surprised me (in a good way). Who is this Riker guy? Wow!

For me the music is as important as the dance. I always love Pit Bull - goes without saying. Of course Rumor Has It (Adele), and Somebody That I Used To Know (Gotye).

Who are you loving? Fav song? Best dance of the night?

Going, Going, Gone...

Bitter sweet...

I have requested, and been granted the return of my four books published through Ellora's Cave Publishing: Lily in Wonderland, This Side of Dead, Dodging Cupid, and Holiday Hostage. If you have a burning desire to read them...after March 24th, they may no longer be available. I have removed the covers, buy links and blurbs from my blog.

Where do we go from here? Not sure. I will probably one day self-publish them. For now, I'm going to concentrate on the next book, which is Star Kissed, and the next....
