BotB Results and Laziness

Hey Gang;

I nearly forgot to post the Battle of the Bands results from my violin Pirates battle on the 15th. One of the main reasons I don't post regularly for this event is I frequently forget to tally the votes - especially when it is such a landslide, as this one was. I pitted Lindsay Stirling against David Garrett with a Pirates of the Caribbean theme, and of the 24 who voted 17 preferred the dancing violist Lindsey Stirling's style and pure vibrancy.

No surprise there, right? I do like that my viewers continue to prove the America's Got Talent judge wrong.

Thanks for participating.

In other news . . .

I'm feeling lazy - again. Another no-surprise there, yes?

When I'm feeling lazy I like to read books. Sometimes more than one or three, depending on how long
the lazy mood lasts. I've got about 15 books on my next-up list, so I'm not saying which I will be reading over the next few days because many of my preferences right now are not written by my fellow author-bloggers (apologies), and I really don't want to commit to a specific book. I am always prone to not read what I commit to.

I'll let it be a surprise to all of us.

Today my plan is to go to my job interview, sign some papers with my bankruptcy lawyer, edit and post the first ten pages of a short story/novella for my writing group, then reward my industriousness with several days of sitting on my butt and reading. And not be embarrassed at all about my lack of activity. Well, besides my daily half hour walk around the neighborhood. Won't skip that (unless it rains).

Have a good week all.

Hope the job interview goes well. Sorry you're having to deal with bankruptcy stuff.
I've been reading a lot the past two months. Just finished one of Christine Rains' book, almost done with an Abercrombie book, and just started one of Brandon and Bryan's books. Zombies - fun!

I'm sorry, I think I missed that Battle of the Bands.

I have a real hard time being lazy. I don't hold still well.

Lazy is nice every once in a while. Ugg bankruptcy crap can sure be a pain in the butt

Stacy McKitrick said...

Only 15 books on your up next list? If only I had that few. Enjoy! :)

Chrys Fey said...

I thought Lindsey was fabulous!

When you're lazy it's the perfect time to read...and I don't really think that's being lazy. ;)

Nick Wilford said...

Reading definitely counts as time well spent. Enjoy catching up!

I enjoyed your battle. not much reading for me today - laundry knows my name and is calling....

David P. King said...

Hoping you accomplish all you've set out to do today. And you have no idea how badly I'd like to see a pirate violin battle. :)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Reading a bunch of books is not laziness. It's brain exercise! Best of luck at the job interview!

Hi Hunza! Well, that sounds sort of like me over the hols! My sloth is nearly over now. I've been reading up a storm too as you know.
How did the job interview go? And all the rest of the stuff?

If you cast your eyes down your blogroll you should see that my link is up and running again! I finally fixed the feedburner thingy I hope for good. Gotta get techno! Anyhow, hopefully next time I post you'll see it. :-)

I did a bankruptcy some 18 years ago--I was in a hole that didn't seem likely to ever crawl out of. Probably a good thing. Within a few years I had good credit and now have outstanding credit and I stay out of debt.

I've been lazier than I should of late. Not reading enough and definitely not writing like I should be doing. Maybe A to Z will rekindle the fire.
