Notes from a Drama Queen

The Big Apple

Monday, March 23, 2009

Hmmmph. Forgot all about blogging today. Today I dragged my sorry ass out of bed at 3:25 am, threw on some clothes and drove 65 miles to the airport. Got on a plane to NYC, arrived and had the taxi ride from hell (I was getting car sick). An hour to drive 1/4 mile (the driver couldn't figure out where to go). I still gave him money, the poor sweetie.
But the blessed hotel let me check in early and even have breakfast, so all is good, waiting for The Lunch.
This is something writers go through. I've never met my sweet editor, who's a darling but a baby, and we're having one of those "where is my career going" kind of lunch (fabulous agent will be there too). I can't tell you how many of them I've had.
In general they're a good meal and good company and not much else. No matter who the publisher is, no matter how good their intentions are, things seldom come to fruition. I'm not going to badmouth my publishers -- they do the best they can, make the choices they hope are the smart ones, and fate takes over from there.
In the past I've been full of rage, of grief, of cold-hearted plans for vengeance. You see, it's not about me. It's about my books, which are my children. Wouldn't you be fierce when it comes to protecting your children?
But last year I developed a Zen-like calm. Every now and then I get ruffled, but I can usually OM my way back to equanimity (along with Come to Jesus talks from Jenny Crusie and Lani Diane Rich). I'm glorious, and my work really moves a lot of people. That's what matters.

So why did I drag myself out of bed at such an ungodly hour and am spending so much time and money to deal with publishing again? I'm not. We'll do the publishing talk. The "what are your plans for Anne" kind of thing (which my agent is fabulous at).
But mostly my baby boy editor and I will eat fabulous food and talk about craft and sex, and that will be a good enough reason. I'll leave the publishing crap to my agent.

But right now I'm going to crash. I don't leave for three hours to head into mid-town, and I'm tired.

So wish me luck. Wish me glory. Wish me a nice long nap and a great meal, and I'll report in when I get back.

車燈來看看唷!
情趣用品對一般人來說充滿神秘動人的吸引力,許多人想一窺情趣用品究竟,卻又不敢太過接近,因為這個領域充斥著謠言與標籤、讓許多人深怕一碰及就會讓別人投射以異樣的眼光看待。

如果大家稍微留意一下,不難可以發現一些事,大多人在逛街時對每一間情趣用品店的櫥窗都會向內張望後姍姍離去,有一些人卻是假裝目不斜視的走過。畢竟台灣人的觀念並沒有像國外一樣的開放,所以還無法很公開與光明正大的踏進情趣用品去選購一些情趣用品
 
利用網路購物的方式去選購情趣用品是相當方便的一件事情,可以從網頁上獲得商品的詳細介紹而不必害羞的去詢問店員商品的使用方法,並且在商品的介紹上面也不亞於從店員那獲得的資訊,有些甚至還更詳細一些。
 
在台灣有許多情趣用品訂購網站,從以前只有少樣的情趣用品到今日數百種的情趣用品看來,這種促進閨房之樂的東西已經漸漸地為人們所接受與喜愛。

但以目前的市場來說,絕大部分的情趣用品網站皆以銷售台灣、大陸製造的情趣用品居多。原因很簡單:成本低廉,卻也因此犧牲了品質和安全性!情趣用品是直接與自己和最親密的另一半的身體接觸,為了節省一點點的金錢而選擇品質粗糙的廉價黑心情趣用品,實為相當不智的選擇。
