Happy Monday!

I love awards shows, as a general rule. I love seeing who's wearing what, who's arriving with whom, who gives the best speeches and who's the most surprised when they win (or don't). I'm a little fed up with the Oscars lately, though, and not only because they stretch out their show with ridiculous skits and songs and interpretive dances so that a 2-hour show becomes a 4-hour one. Ever since "Crash" won Best Picture over "Brokeback Mountain," because 1/2 the members of the Academy admitted they would never vote for a movie with "that kind" of plot, I've been a little turned off.

But I digress, because I love the prime-time Emmys, and they were on last night. I was happy that Katherine Heigl ("Grey's Anatomy") and "30 Rock" won awards; I thought Denis Leary ("Rescue Me") and the casts of "Two and a Half Men" & "The Office" got robbed; I loved Kathryn Morris's dress. Best of all, I was entertained and still in bed by 11:00. :)

I'm also happy because Prison Break starts a brand new season tonight. Yummy! Love the characters, love the writing, love the romantic tension between Michael and Sarah. Couch at 8:00 tonight, here I come!

And finally, I'm happy to report that I am currently in 2nd place, in the Best Ebook of the Summer contest. The poll is open 'til Friday, so I have a lot of work to do to catch the leader, but I'd love to win, if only as a brand new author over someone who's a lot more established in the e-pub world. Plus I'll get a review and promo out of it, so fingers crossed. If you haven't voted yet, please do! And spread the word to anyone else out there...it only takes a minute!

Hi Allie,
I just voted for you! How awesome you're in 2nd place and glad you mentioned it. I remembered I hadn't voted yet.

I didn't watch the Emmys last night. I took my daughter back to college and forgot about it.

Hey, this is a poll where I feel my vote counted. Not sure if I'll feel this way when election times crawls around.

Fingers crossed you get first place.

Checking back in to let you know that as of 3:42 p.m. Pacific time, you are in first place with 113 and second place has 108. Very close.

Mel,

I know...it's going to be a rough 4 more days of voting! Spread the word and make sure your friends vote too!

So exciting that you're first now!

WTG on being second. I hope to hear that you're number one.

I love watching the Emmys. In regards to Kathryn Morris, she looks so nice compared to the way they have her appearing on the show.

I hoe you have a good Monday.
