Monday Mentions: Erotica Panic, Kitty Face & Scottie Pinwheels

rat

I’m feeling a bit like that baby rat, in a world out of my control and running the hamster wheel fast as I can with nowhere to safely jump off! Whew! Finally completed the orchestration for our performance of STRAYS, THE MUSICAL (this Sunday Oct 27 locally, and Nov 1 at the Cat Writers Conference). And I’m *this close* to having revisions completed on HIDE AND SEEK.

My Puppies.About.com site needs new material, and that’s on the agenda for this week, too. Oh, and the yard needs mowing, the roses wacking, and pets need petting. Somebody send me some extra hours in the day! I’ll resurface soon, gang, but need to dive back into the race.

Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Check out the THRILLERFEST video at the bottom, too.  For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday.
