I admit it...I'm shocked!!!

I've just updated my story site, Bevie's Bit of Happyness, did a quick count and to my complete and utter amazement found that I have over 40 poems (including 22 haiku and senryu and half a dozen limericks) and 9 short stories published!!!

Not bad considering I started writing fiction in June 2007 and poetry in October 2007.

My Favourite Doctor

Heads or Tails is a weekly meme hosted by Skittles.
This weeks theme is 'doctors' and we are encouraged to think outside the box.

This week I thought about my favourite doctor

Dr Meredith Rodney McKay from Stargate Atlantis

Doctor Meredith Rodney McKay is a fictional character in the TV series Stargate Atlantis, and is played by David Hewlett. His character originated in the parent series, Stargate SG-1, with his first appearance in the episode "48 Hours." Rodney is a brilliant scientist, with degrees in astrophysics and engineering. He is also Earth's leading expert on the Stargate and is currently the lead scientist on the Atlantis expedition.

Here is a clip that I found on youtube about my favourite doctor. Isn't he just gorgeous?

I can hear music

Simply Snickers is a weekly poetry prompt. The words that I needed for my poem were 'stand' and 'still'. I had already written a poem for this week...a ghazal and you can find it here. I thought it was a bit depressing so I wrote something happier...a haiku.

And to make it even happier, it is about my all time favourite music group. In fact, I reckon that they are like the Oil of Olay of music groups...ageless and timeless...well at least I think their music is.

I hear The Beach Boys
I have no choice but to dance
My heart can't stand still

Love Juice?

Heads or Tails is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful and multi-talented Skittles.

The theme this week is joke.

Little Johnny keeps asking his dad for a television in his bedroom, to which his dad keeps saying no. After all this nagging, dad caves in. Several nights later, Johnny comes downstairs and asks, "Dad, what's love juice?" Dad is horrified, and after looking at mum, who is also gobsmacked, proceeds to give his son the whole works, warts and all. Johnny now sits on the sofa, his mouth open in amazement. Dad asks, "So what is it you've been watching then son?" Johnny replies: "Wimbledon."

Guess who...
