Not Christmasy, but spiritual...
Gee yowls, is it Friday into Saturday AGAIN!? Weekend purrs, my holiday-prancing and dancing Kittens... warm on the tame prairie and this Big Cat did some winterizing outside today... and! she’s closin’ in on the next chapter of her WIP ~ Kandy Apple for Halloween. No, not Christmasy, but then, the Kougaress isn’t feeling all that in the ‘merry holly jolly’ mood... however, she is feeling spiritual... this Christmas Holiday season feels drastically different than all previous Christmases... something has altered on our beloved Earth... something that is of the heart... something that is of the soul.
Weather Warning ~ Oh, NORTHERN MIDWEST BIG CATS, take care. Moi just heard a deep-freeze blizzard is on the way. Not the kind of snow superstorm you want to mess with. Get supplies. Get prepared. And stay warm and fed. Because this Big Cat loves ya!
The tail-switching holiday moment: Serena Shay’s latest GUTS AND BUTTS GAZETTE character ~ Prudence Penelope Jorgensson (parrot) - Administrative Assistant extraordinaire, the keeper of secrets and a flamboyant flirt looking for love in all the right places. But will her purple leather, thigh-high boots walk her into the man of her dreams or the man of her screams? Could they be one in the same?
Big Cat by-the-numbers ~
3:33 am... 4:44 am... 12:12 pm... 1:11 pm... 4:44 pm... 12:12 am... oooh, synchronicity... the Kougaress saw her eagles flying today... and now she’s hearing the Steve Miller band’s “fly like an eagle until I’m free... right through the revolution...”
Authoress news and mews ~
The Kougar posted the blurb and two excerpts from ALL SHADES OF BLUE PARADISE, her aristocratic fantasy erotic romance at Romance Writers Behaving Badly... ooooh, she didn’t even think of the current timing... until this moment... where the British royals are being vigorously and ‘righteously [imo]’protested... after all, the queen owns BP, yes, the criminal cruel oil company that killed off the Gulf of Mexico. *Karma in action.* However, darling KitKats, the Kougar is not against the aristocracy on general principle. After all, it’s character that counts. The royals in moi’s book may have their bad guys and their squabbles and vicious intrigues. However, they would NEVER NEVER kill off their planet-world... and, they have created a world where the blue bloods champion everyone, regardless of status.
Thank You to the reader who rated BRANDED BY THE TEXANS a *4* at Barnes and Noble. Good, good vibrations coming your way... yeee-haww!

Rainbow Colored Woman and Meet The Cast
by Serena Shay
Nicolas Taggert McMahon(wolf) - Editor in chief of the Guts and Butts gazette, Alpha male and maybe one of the most hated men in Talbot's Peak, Montana. Yes, he's done some underhanded things, but they were all done for a damn good reason. Unfortunately, he can't talk about that reason, yet.

A Holiday Gift For You
by Bekki Lynn
The holidays are my favoritie time of the year. I love the buzz, the lights, the cheeriness decorations bring to the neighborhoods. It seems many people are friendlier and smile more. What I love most though is the shopping for gifts I know will bring happiness, smiles and joy to those I love. It brings me joy to watch them open gifts on Christmas morning.
This year, I'm extending my giving to readers. For the month of December, you can purchase Annie and the Young Master 50% off.
***This was posted by romance author, Regan Taylor, on the Siren-BookStrand’s private authors loop. This Big Cat enjoyed it many moons ago, and thought it was worth posting again.***

AN ACTUAL CRAIG'S LIST PERSONALS AD
To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
Date: 2009-05-27, 1 :43 a.m. E.S.T.
I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.
First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ...... isn't it?!
I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].
After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!
I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]
I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb ... after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.
Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and
one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.
The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).
In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky.
Have a good day!
I probably don't have to ask you to forward this one.
Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~ from the Flash Cat...
Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 712 ~
Sylva knew she gave a nod, but barely. With Ginger’s wise words, she willed herself to lift the mug and inhale. Steamy comfort filled her nostrils. Sylva took a sip all too aware Ginger watched her carefully. “Mmmm... good. Like I’ve said to Zeke, you all have the best food here.” Sylva took a longer sip, and let the warmth fill her. “Zeke?” she asked. “Big brother is just fine,” Marina answered. Glancing over her shoulder, Sylva watched Zeke’s sister enter the kitchen. “He shot that robo-plane out of the sky. Grant is with the crew goin’ to retrieve it.”
Zeke kept hold of the joystick and maintained his watch. “Yep, Van, you talk to ‘em. I’ll keep everything eyeballed.” After changing their course so they wouldn’t interfere with the posse, Van answered the hail. Zeke listened to the back and forth while he scrutinized the two men. Obviously in superb condition, and likely trained agents of some kind, they raced for an isolated stack of large rocks. Though, with the damage done to the barn’s super-strong roof, Zeke had to wonder how protected they were from the dart-like missiles. Still, they dived between the giant slabs. “Hell.” Zeke fired.
