Something Different Than Valentine?

I don't know why I'm doing this, this month, except that I've got in the habit of doing this every month, so yeah... See Cait's blog.

A couple days ago a friend was reading a book and I snatched it out from her hands.
"Look interesting?" She asked.
I read the back cover. "No! It looks like a romance!"

"What? You're crazy." Then she hollors to someone to talk some sense into my head. "This girl doesn't like romance."
She was like, "How do you expect to get married." And she said she's not reading any of my stories with out the characters getting married. She doesn't know I've already tricked her ;).

And here I am writing a post about a 'couple' of mine :) Well, let me just say this book has a very different ending :) Haha.

So, trying to not give away any spoilers, here are my answers to this months Beautiful People: Valentine Edition. May I present to you Taylor Ibori and Mashaki Payne!

1. How long have they been a couple? Soon after they meet. About half way through the book.

2. How did they first meet? On a college field trip.

3. What were their first thoughts of each other? (Love at first sight or “you’re freakishly annoying”?) She thought he was funny and weird. He was just amazed and speechless. Not love at first site, nor annoyance, but both caught each other's attention right off. Simply, it infatuation that happened to be realistic and compatible for them until.... I'll say no more :)

4. What do they do that most annoys each other? That happens later on. Even then, very little and rarely. She isn't serious enough at times for him. She hates how she can't control him.

5. Are their personalities opposite or similar? Similar, yet opposite :) So informative, eh?

6. How would their lives be different without each other? Very. She's responsible for a meeting which changes the course of the rest of the book. She might have not thought of certain things if it hadn't been for him. Their relationship is crucial for the plot - but, it is not a romance novel :).

7. Are they ever embarrassed of each other? No. Sometimes he thinks she is a little crazy.

8. Does anyone disapprove of their relationship? It's hard to tell. But mostly not.

9. Do they see their relationship as long-term/leading to marriage? At first, yes....

10. If they could plan the “perfect outing” together, where would they go?They'd probably go to Earth. Both love the atmosphere, scenery and history of it.

And that's all I'm giving away!!! Probably too much already :).


  1. Hey! Visiting from the GTW's link-up.
    Nice! I've been following Cait's blog for a while and keep thinking I should join in with the Beautiful People link-up, too. Maybe one of these days... :)

I love discussions, but nothing mean — I post a lot of opinionated articles, and I'd love to know YOUR opinions, even if they oppose mine. But, please, no insulting. Be nice and let's get to know one another ~ Keturah

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 

During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????

“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
