Tuesday's Top Ten

I almost forgot today was Tuesday. Since I've become a fulltime writer, I tend to forget the weekdays...
But anyway, today you'll get my top ten movies (umm...problem is I couldn't just choose 10):

1. Kill Bill
2. Ice Age
3. Bad Boys
4. Ocean's Eleven
5. Alien
6. Lethal Weapon
7. X-Men
8. Men in Black
9. The Silence of the Lambs
10. Die hard
11. Lord of the Rings
12. Waterworld
13. Indiana Jones
14. Mission Impossible
15. Pirates of the Caribbean

The list could go on and on. I love movies. Especially movies with action, blood, humor and high stakes. I'm not the romance movie type of girl. I think my husband's very glad about that!

Btw, I got a glimpse at a cover draft for THE OTHER LIFE yesterday!!! I can't wait to share it with you!

I'm sure you've all heard about the Help Write Now Auction that is taking place at the moment.

I want to point out two special items you can bid for:

1. A prize pack from the GotYA girls. We're offering 50 page manuscript critique + a query critique + a 10 page manuscript critique from Claudia Gabel, editor of Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins + books.
Doesn't that sound awesome??? You can still bid for it!

Amazing, right? You should hurry because there isn't much time left to bid!

Tuesday's Top Ten

It's Tuesday and a cold is trying to kill me. *sigh* I didn't get more than four hours of sleeping from all the coughing.
But now it's time for my top ten desserts!

1. Bread and Butter Pudding with caramelized bananas
2. Eton Mess (strawberries, meringue and cream)
3. Tiramisu
4. Panna Cotta
5. Mousse au Chocolat
6. Crème Brûlée
7. Chocolate Soufflé
8. Oreos ice cream.
9. Lemon-meringue-cake
10. German Baumkuchen (a layered cake)

Oh, and one word: home-made. Always home-made (except for the Baumkuchen. That's too complicated!).
Now I'm hungry but sadly my cold is affecting my stomach, so nothing but tea and some porridge for me.
What are your favorite desserts?
