Does anyone else remember the song, I Don’t Like Mondays by The Boomtown Rats? I used to love that song, and if you need a memory fresher I found a link on YouTube.
Unlike The Boomtown Rats song, I actually like Mondays because my favorite TV shows are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights and then I don’t watch TV again until Monday so tonight means fun shows (I love the worst sort of reality shows and Tuesday is double trouble night where I’ve got two shows to watch…at the same time with The Biggest Loser and American Idol.)
I also like this Monday because I bought three books over the weekend and I now have a small TBR pile next to my bed by authors I adore–Frederica by Georgette Heyer, His Captive Lady by Anne Gracie, and Tempt The Devil, the brand new release from Anna Campbell. Anna Campbell and Anne Gracie both write write historicals with unforgettable alpha heroes, and they’re both Australian authors–as well as good friends of mine–but their style and voice are quite different. I’m a fan of both authors so its doubly delicious to have new books by them next to my bed.
And for those of you who still haven’t seen the Flirting with Forty movie starring Heather Locklear and Robert Buckley, it will air once more on Lifetime, February 14th, Valentine’s Day, 7 pm ET/PT. So if you haven’t yet seen it, set your DVR now.
To celebrate the Valentine’s Day showing, I’m giving away one last movie treat box, packed with popcorn and candy and fun stuff and a DVD of Sleepless in Seattle so you can have your own chick flick movie marathon this weekend. Post a comment below to enter. (Contest runs through Tuesday night midnight, winner will be announced Wednesday morning and I’d love to mail the box the same day so you have for the weekend. Tell me what you’re reading now, or what book you’re anxious to read, and you’re in!)
