Merry Christmas and False Advertising

MomGoth has a couple of Christmas surprises for her sweet little baby angels!

First, my fabulous long-time pal and co-conspirator … I mean, critique partner, Jane Peyton, has consented to contribute Tuesdays With Jane posts. So, any Tuesday I can hold a poniard to her gullet and force one out of her, you’ll have the benefit of her wit and wisdom.

Second, a new internet acquaintance of mine with the super name of Alexander Charlemont, is posting a vegetarian Jamaican recipe here tomorrow. I’ve added his site, Vegetarian Magic, to my blogroll under Foods. Check it out!

Okay, false advertising: Jane gave me some body lotion the other day. The label says I should rub the lotion onto my body “until it is completely absorbed”. I’ve been rubbing it on my belly several times a day, but I’m still as fat as ever. I think I’ll sue.

Meanwhile today, it being Tuesday, I’m posting at Fatal Foodies with a recipe for a lovely light soup.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: An old friend and a new friend come to visit at the same time.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    False advertising is a gigantic no-no! I believe that they shuld be true with their products to be able to maintain customers properly. Thanks for the information! πŸ™‚

    I’m betting it’s an anti-cellulite lotion, those things just don’t work. Excerise is the best remedy. On a lighter note; Merry Christmas!
