THE FIRST FEW SENTENCES OF... This is NOT Working
Why today--of all days?
Monday, and here I am in my brand new position, which took beaucoup de months to find in this wacky economy, only to feel like the ultimate failure.
Right after bouncing like a school kid in my ergonomically designed desk chair, I’d punched the computer's on button. Nothing happened.

Fun First Facts About Vicki
What was the first romance you ever read?
My first romance(s) were written by Emilie Loring. At age fourteen, I was in an in-between stage in my reading life and had complained to my mom. She handed one to me and I devoured it. Fortunately, Ms. Loring had written seventy-something. I had a fantastic summer.
What was your first date with your significant other?
Our first date doesn't really count. I'd made plans with a guy who lived in my apartment complex to go see "For Your Eyes Only." Only my friend had had too much fun-in-the-sun. So when I was checking on him, his doorbell rang. On the other side stood Handsome, my friend's co-worker. He thought my friend and I were dating, but we weren't. Handsome made excuses to leave, but my friend dragged him inside and introduced us. Then he blurted out, "Why don't you take her to the movie?" I assured Handsome he didn't need to bother. Imagine my amazement when he said yes. We went and I did all the talking. Not a good sign in my book. And didn't hear back (not that I really thought I would) for six weeks until the night I was hostessing my girlfriend's birthday party. After blessings from my cousin, another girlfriend, and a college chum, I continued to go out with him.
What was the first meal your significant other ever made for you?
One time, he decided to host a dinner party with me and a co-worker as guests. Only he didn't have a full set of silverware. We passed around a Ginsu knife to cut our steaks.
