Sometimes it’s really as easy as that except that is when you do everything else but get around to putting your thoughts down on ‘paper.’
I’ve been writing this post in my head now for several days and, well, shame on me for not doing anything about it.
My holidays were nice and sort of anticlimatic, maybe I was just expecting too much or maybe my standards are just too damn high?
I recently read at Guanabee that some Hispanics don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, really? No, really? Because all the Puerto Ricans, I know sure do, I mean we do it Spanish style – no yucky cranberry sauce and our stuffing has Sazon and Chayote in it but still, a turkey by any other name, no?
And, how once again Ms. Puerto Rico has taken the Ms. Universe title even as haters maced her dress and tried to take her down? Damn, ladies, really – is it that serious? Reuters

Also, now you can really hear what your favorite authors have to say as bookvideos.tv debuts.

Lastly, Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be over, but there are news reports of Green Monday, supposedly next week and there are plenty of book deals out there to grab!
