I never stay up late enough to catch Jimmy Kimmel, but his boy Guillermo is hilarious! Check these out:
And the Jason Bourne one is a classic:

Last month in New Zealand, two glass vials purportedly containing the ghosts sold for $2,830 ($1,983 U.S.) at an auction. The "ghosts" were put up for bidding by a woman from Christchurch. She said they were captured in her house and stored in glass vials with stoppers and dipped in holy water, which she says "dulls the spirits' energy."
She said they were the spirits of an old man who lived in the house during the 1920s and a powerful, disruptive little girl who turned up after a session with a spirit-calling Ouija board. Since an exorcism at the property last July led to their capture, there has been no further spooky activity in the house.
The auction attracted more than 214,000 page views and dozens of questions before the winning bid.
Okay, first of all, how did they capture the spirits in glass vials and, second, who would want to keep them? Especially if one is a powerful, disruptive spirit. I don't know about you, but if that little girl gets out, she's gonna be pissed...

When you're dealing with technology, keep your cool. Unlike me. But, really, should I have to call a guy in India to fix a wireless router that quit working after only one week?!? Really?!
Okay, granted, that's not much of a tip, but after not being able to get on the internet this morning and then spending over an hour with the cable company and the wireless router company, that's about all I have left in me.
So, today's tip: Don't let technology get you fired up. (Definitely a case of "do as I say and not as I do".) LOL

Hey, sorry I've been absent. My computer had a meltdown, I've been looking for a full-time job, and the last couple of days have just been in-sane. I'll hopefully be back on track next week with a new installment of The Devil Inside.
In the meantime, I'm a guest blogger today over at RomConInc.com. Come on over and chat!

This just goes to show that people are silly and stupid and resilient. LOL

My third dragon shifter e-novella, Dragonlight, is due out May 9th at Amber Heat. Check out the cover:
Marina Rodriguez takes a job at a local lab with the intention of saving as many dragons as possible. She never expected to be mistaken as a dragon hunter, and certainly didn't dream she'd be kidnapped by the very man she saved. She finds out for herself that no good deed goes unrewarded...
In Dragonlight I introduce Gavril Stasio, my first ice dragon (hence the beautiful blue color). Check it out on May 9th!
Albert Einstein has long been recognized as a genius. He was a theoretical physicist, philosopher, author, and one of the most influential scientists to ever live. He is considered the father of modern physics and was one smart cookie. ;) Here's what we can learn from him:

WHY YOU NEVER QUESTION A DRUNK
I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:
A half-gallon of 2% milk
A carton of eggs
A quart of orange juice
A head of lettuce
A 2 lb. can of coffee
A 1 lb. package of bacon
As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, "You must be single." I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I indeed had never found Mr. Right. I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status...
Curiosity getting the better of me, I said, "Yes you are correct. But how on earth did you know that?"
The drunk replied, "'Cause you're ugly."

Some words of wisdom:
A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read. --Mark Twain
No, it's not a very good story - its author was too busy listening to other voices to listen as closely as he should have to the one coming from inside. --Stephen King
Every writer has to figure out what works best - and often has to select and discard different tools before they find the one that fits. --Nora Roberts
You will, I am sure, agree with me that... if page 534 only finds us in the second chapter, the length of the first one must have been really intolerable. --Arthur Conan Doyle
Writing is sweat and drudgery most of the time. And you have to love it in order to endure the solitude and the discipline. --Peter Benchley
Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. --Stephen King

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.
Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, Good grief, look how smart I am!
Celebrate your wisdom! LOL

When I was a kid, and even as a teenager, my mom just about always played an April Fool's prank on me. Usually just after I'd gotten up and was still a little sleep-fuzzy. Harmless little "how'd you rip your pajamas" or something along those lines. Something she knew would make me look.
Now that I live 2,000 miles away from her, small things like that pop into my memory on days like today. My mom's sense of humor is a little more understated than my dad's was, but in her own way she's just as ornery. LOL
What about you? What kinds of April Fool's memories do you have?
