    Yeah, I know the feeling. When I was nineteen, I worked second shift, got off at 11:30, changed, went to the bar (I either knew people or I used my fake. :P), closed the bar, then went to eat, got home at 5, get ready for classes and go to those all day and then be to work by 3:00. I would literally stay up for days on end. I can’t imagine doing that now. There’s no way in hell you could PAY me to do that.

    Second the getting old thing. It’s so not fair that for a night of fun now, we have to suffer the entire next day. đŸ˜›

    And you’re allowed to be a bum every once in a while! (Especially since I’m not living down there anymore… someone has to step into the beach bum title occasionally!!)

    I don’t think the aging process starts until you have children. Then, it is accelerated! lol.

    I went out to a bar on Saturday night too *g*. First time in probably 25 years when I went with a group of women just to have a good time. Which I did – had a very good time that is. But boy have things changed in 25 years. HAVE THEY EVER CHANGED!!!
    OK – may as well get long here. Men and women don’t dance together??!!?!?!?! At least at the bar I went to, women get up and dance with each other and then I happened to walk by the dance floor and all these guys were standing around watching??? What’s with that?? In my day (and OMG I don’t believe I just used that expression) guys came up and asked women to dance. Then again if they liked them. Then they would sit and talk – well yell if it was loud. But Saturday night all I could think of was what a ‘meat market!’
    I had a great time but that’s because I enjoyed the women I was with. If I’d been hoping to meet a guy – I would have been devastated by the whole thing. As it is, I’m sad for the way it seems to be.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
