Summer dreaming

Here in the northeast we've already begun experiencing cooler nights. I don't know about you, but one of the joys of summer is sleeping on a screened porch, watching fireflies and feeling a line of perspiration make a trail between my breasts. I know, it's kinda weird but hey, I like the closeness, the mugginess and the long, dark nighttime hours where sleep eludes because it's so darn hot.

To each her own, I guess.

I usually get lots of plotting done during those hours. My mind roams, taking me to new, exciting places to confer with interesting, sexy people. I've got a little book filled with bits and pieces of stories I've pulled from my head during long, sleepless summer nights.

The good news? We've gotten lots of hot nights here this summer, which means I've got some new ideas for stories brewing. The bad news? It's already getting cooler here. Tomorrow night the mercury is predicted to drop to--are you ready?--42.


I see an end to my summertime dreaming/plotting nights. But you know what that means, don't you? Cooler evenings...the kind just right for banging away at the keyboard!

Hope you're enjoying the last warm summer nights! If you need a bit of sensual reading material, you know where to find it...

We're loving the Olympics here. Loved the opening ceremony, and are keeping the television on much more than we usually do.

What about you? Are you as psyched for the Olympics as I am?

Found this Olympic quiz. Took it and Score: 85%

What about you? Aren't you curious to see what your Olympic IQ is?
