Saturday Seven ~ 7 Things I Learned This Week @meganslayer #iamwriting #laptop #satseven #saturday7 #lessonslearned

This week for the Saturday Seven, I’d like to touch on the seven or so things I learned this week. You see, my laptop was down. Not just, oh it’s a little slow, but down. Not going to do much, practically bricked, down. DH got it back up and running without having to get a new one. Trust me, I’m glad. The next few months won’t be great and I don’t want to add a few more financial hits. Laptops aren’t cheap. Anyway… here are my seven things I learned while I couldn’t use the computer. Oh, and these aren’t in any order. 🙂 And no, this isn’t my laptop. 😛

7. Silence is golden. Okay, sounds cliche, but not having to check the internet for goodness knows what is kind of nice.

6. Life doesn’t end because there’s no facebook. Sounds silly, right? I mean, it’s facebook. I use it for authorly stuff. But it was kind of nice to not have it blinking at me.

5. I miss writing my author updates on facebook. I love talking to my readers – that means you! – and giving that little update in my group was kind of nice. Reassuring. It made me feel like someone’s paying attention. Not writing it or being able to post it sort of stunk.

4. Sometimes you can’t make commitments. I had a guest blog I was supposed to post. With the laptop down, I couldn’t. The host told me to send the stuff to post and they’d do it for me. Generous and I love that person to death for the offer. But I couldn’t GET to the stuff because…yeah, it was on the computer.

3. That niggling feeling to copy folders onto the hard drive shouldn’t be ignored. I knew I should’ve done that last copy. I knew it. I mean, duh. That’s what I got the hard drive for. And I’d just copied to it the week before, but I added documents and photos. I didn’t want to lose them. So, yeah, I’m back to every other day copying and backing up.

2. Photos can’t be replicated. Here’s the thing. I like to take photos. Love to. Maybe it’s just silly stuff, but hey, I like to take photos. The dogs, the tot, the DH, landscapes, whatever. I can’t get those back if they’re deleted. I can try and there might be some bizarre way to do it, but I don’t know how. Knowing I can’t always recover them reinforces the notion I need to back up…EVERYTHING.

1. DH is the freaking bomb. Yep. He managed to find and fix everything. I’m not even sure how the whole thing shook out, but he managed to get the laptop fixed and everything back on it. He’s the man. Period.

I’m off to finally watch the Avengers: Infinity War movie. It’s late, but it’s about time. Enjoy!

Saturday Seven with @MeganSlayer #favorite #flawed #characters on #television #saturday7 #long&shortreviews

I love a flawed character. There’s something about a character that needs to be redeemed that works for me. I’m focusing on TV and the shows I’ve watched. I’m sure I’ll have forgotten a few or just haven’t seen all the ones you have, so feel free to suggest a few.

Here’s my Saturday Seven, in no particular order:

7. Mike Logan – Law and Order – he means well, even if he’s not always the best cop. He’s great at being the bad cop. The guy who will do what it takes to get the case solved, but might not always go by the book.

6. Hawkeye Pierce – M*A*S*H – he’s got a big heart, but he’s a terrible womanizer. I still say if he and Margaret really got together, they’d have a hell of a time.

5. Dan Fielding – Night Court – he took womanizing to the highest level, but he still had good in him. Okay, so he was a jerk, but when it came to helping the pregnant lady or Roz… he was okay.

4. Ryan Wolfe – CSI: Miami – the guy had gambling issues and lied a time or two, but was always good in the clinch. I rather liked that the show arc allowed him to redeem himself.

3. Sonny Corinthos – General Hospital – yes, he’s a gangster. Yes, he’s in the mob. Yes, he’s done things that aren’t good. He’s shot the wrong people, been shot by other people and ruined a few lives, but he’s still human. Plus, that stare he has is something else.

2. Greg Sanders – CSI – he could be more than a tad full of himself and tried way too hard sometimes, but I like him. He’s handsome, funny and geeky, and full of himself. Meh. It happens.

1. Captain Hook – Once Upon a Time – I have to admit, he wasn’t my favorite when he got all gallant and in love with Emma Swan. I thought they kind of diluted him. I liked the fire, the punch, the…hook. Okay, I liked him bad.

What about you? Who’d I miss? I’m open to suggestion.

Saturday Seven ~ 7 Romantic TV Movies I Use for Writing with @meganslayer #romance #television #iamwriting

When I write, I can’t have silence. I can’t. The quieter it is, the worse off I am. I’ve been this way as long as I can remember. When I’d do my homework in school, my mother would chew me out for having my cd player going and watching television while I sorted through Algebra 2. Oh yeah, I’d be busting out the tunes, working the math problems and watching whatever was on the TV.

I’m still that kind of worker. Silence is deadly for me. I get bored and off-topic. If I have music or a movie playing and can sing along…not very well because my range is so low, but hey, whatever…I’m good.
So as I’m writing this post, it occurred to me, I wanted to write a list of some of my favorite television romances. Don’t knock it until you’ve watched them. Maybe they aren’t your cuppa. It happens. I don’t mind. I do have to admit, some of these are Christmas shows. Shrugs. I’m okay with that, too.
Here’s my list and it’s not all-inclusive or in any particular order:
7. A Princess for Christmas – First off… the guy from Outlander is in this movie and he grooves. Yes, he dances. It’s silly, funny and they unwind like regular people, despite being royals. I love it.
6. My Secret Valentine – Lacey Chabert is the queen of the Hallmark movies. She always has at least one ‘huh’ moment, but it’s realistic. Plus, this story is cute because of the notes left on the chalkboard. \
5. A Christmas Kiss – I’d watched Brendan Fehr in CSI: Miami and kind of liked him, but kind of didn’t. I don’t know why, but he had magnetism in this movie. I started watching halfway through, then had to find another showing to get the whole story. It’s cute, quirky and I know I’ll get a happy ending.
4. On the Twelfth Day of Christmas – The 12 days of Christmas gift giving and the way the heroine pours her heart out through the movie is endearing.
3. All of My Heart – Another Lacey Chabert movie, but in this one, she inherits half a house. The hero inherits the other half. Oh, and there’s a goat. Just sayin’, the goat makes the movie. Plus, I see a lot of my cats in that goat.
2. My Christmas Love – I have to start this one by admitting this tv movie drives me crazy. The heroine is more than a little self-absorbed. Okay, like a lot. But I love the hero, played by Bobby Campo. He tries so hard to win over the heroine, only to be thwarted by her desire to find that illusive Christmas love. He plays the role with sincerity and humor. I love it.
1. The Normal Heart – if you want romance, then watch the first half of the movie. If you want romance and to cry, then watch the whole thing. It’s the story of an activist during the 1980s dealing with AIDS and the AIDS crisis. The characters are realistic and the love leaps off the screen. I know what will happen at the end of the movie and cry every time. It’s worth the watch, even though you know you’re in for a sad ending. Oh and the Mark Ruffalo/Matt Bomer love scene….damn.
Those are my titles. I warned you there were a lot of Christmas ones. My question to you is, what are you favorite romance TV movies. Not big screen ones, but the ones for the small screen. I’d love to know. You might have a few I haven’t seen and would make my list.

I love the Saturday Spanking posts and look forward to them on Saturday, even if I’m not posting. I find some great reads this way. For my entry this week, I’m posting about my book, Constant. It takes place in the same world of broadcasting as Permanent. I love the idea of a busy newsroom and work on television. I also love how the people who work in the business sometimes need a fun way to unwind.

He demands his submissive’s body and soul…but can he accept his sub’s heart?

Roddy Green never planned to fall in love and certainly not with his Dom, but every time he goes into Darkness, a fetish club, he falls for Vegas all over again. Being in love isn’t the same as being loved in return. Vegas is there to do a job—not to build a romance. But what if the main constant in Roddy’s life is also the one person he can’t live without?

Andrew Vegas knows his job. He’s a Dom. But there is more than one side to him and he’s tired of keeping the other parts of him hidden. One man makes him feel safe and comfortable enough to open up—his pet, Roddy. But will Roddy, the producer of a local news broadcast, want to be with a man with secrets?

“You’re ready for this form of play.” He slapped Roddy hard on the ass with his bare hand. He slid his middle finger between Roddy’s ass cheeks. “Who does this belong to?”

“You, Sir,” Roddy answered. He held his reservations in check. Master Vegas had said the word play. Not love, not romance or desire. Just play. He shouldn’t have hinged his hopes on Master Vegas wanting him in a romantic way.

“You belong to me. Say it again.” Master Vegas punctuated his words with flat-handed spanks on Roddy’s butt. He tapped Roddy’s asshole on the last word.

“You, Sir.”

“Naked. Now.”

“Yes, Ma’am.”

He remembered. Her heart leapt and heat simmered in her veins. “I’m waiting.”

He turned around. Instead of the embarrassment she expected, lust burned in his eyes. He kicked out of his shoes, then yanked his shirt up over his head and tossed it to the floor. She gazed at the tug and flex of his abs as he moved. Damn, the man could model underwear. Not that she’d let him. No, he belonged to her.

His pants and boxers soon landed in the heap. When he knelt to remove his socks, she swatted his ass. Hard. A rosy handprint blossomed in her wake.

“Thank you, Ma’am,” came his reply. He didn’t stand, but remained in position with his bottom facing her.

Music to her ears. She missed hearing him address her in such a manner, missed their games…hell, she missed him most of all. She spanked his butt twice more, loving the feel of his tight buns under her hand.

“Stand, then get the water nice and hot.” She had no idea where to find the bathroom, but he’d show her the way.
