Author has written 10 stories for Twilight.
So, I guess the 'about me' crap goes here, right?
Name: Lindsey (but my friends call me Linny, hence the pen name)
- Books: Well, the Twilight series, of course; but also anything by Dorothy Parker, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, David Sedaris, Sylvia Plath, Anais Nin, all of the Bronte sisters and Richard Wright.
- Movies: Kubrick, Kevin Smith, Tarantino, Coen brothers, Peter Jackson
- Music: I'll never rule out a genre of music, but there are certain artists I despise. My favorite artists are: R.E.M., Tori Amos, Radiohead, The Shins, Bjork, Nirvana, Kanye West, Rage Against the Machine and Tool; but, I enjoy several others, as well.
I did create this Twilight playlist, though -- it's suggested listening while you read my story (kinda sets the mood)
"Six underground" - Sneaker Pimps
-TV: Don't watch it much unless "The Soup" is on, but I'll catch a little Food Network from time to time.
"Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity."
"A hurricane you can watch come at you for a week on the TV and you don't get out of the way. A tornado, you're just in a trailer makin' meth, next thing you know it's tipped over."
"Theirs two many ways too fuck up a perfectlay well sintance sturcshore. Your a star in my book as me and you is the best of frends. To many times me has wanted to right like this. hmmm...what else? There great sintances in the histori of man. Sertinly this is one of tham. Oh! weight! isnt this a paragraf?"
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."— Molly Ivins
"We sound like the Bay City Rollers after an assault by Black Sabbath. And, we vomit onstage better than anyone."
And, some words of wisdom from two of my greatest heroines:
"Because one day, I decided that instead of being hurt and upset by your disapproval, I'm gonna be amused. I'm gonna find it funny. I'm even going to take a little bit of pleasure in it."
"I look adorable! No one ever told me that if you fish, you get to buy an outfit. I'll do just about anything if I can buy an outfit!"
"Well, that’s what most of us had to put up with. Where do you think the's of the world came from?"
"No comment on my lesbian hilarity? My, how far we've come."
"Seventy-five thousand dollars. Seventy-five thousand dollars. Oh my God, that’s like 150 pairs of."
"My mother — she was here. I can feel it. Smell that? The room smells like guilt and."
And Dorothy Parker:
"You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think."
"I might repeat to myself, slowly and soothingly, a list of quotations beautiful from minds profound — if I can remember any of the damn things."
"That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment."
"This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force."
"I like a good Martini, two at the most; for three, I'm under the table; and four, I'm under the host."
"If all of the girls who attended the Yale prom were laid end-to-end, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised."

Dresses from Learning Curve:
Chicken Marsala Marscapone:
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, each breast cut crosswise into 3 pieces
Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken and cook just until brown, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate and cool slightly.
While the chicken cools, melt 2 tablespoons of butter to the same skillet over medium-high heat, then add the onion and saute until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic and saute until the mushrooms are tender and the juices evaporate, about 12 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until it is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in the mascarpone and mustard. Cut the chicken breasts crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through and the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chopped parsley. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fettuccine and cook until al dente, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain. Toss the fettuccine with 3 tablespoons of butter and season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Swirl the fettuccine onto serving plates. Spoon the chicken mixture over top. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve.
Individual Strawberry Trifels:
In a small shallow casserole dish, toss the strawberries with vinegar and let stand at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes. After the strawberries have marinated, check for sweetness, adding sugar if desired.
In a large bowl using an electric mixer, whisk the cream to soft peaks. Add the vanilla and confectioners' sugar. Whip until stiff peaks. Set aside.
Using a serrated knife, slice pound cake lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices. You will only need 4 slices. Using a 2-inch cookie cutter, cut out circles from each cake slice. Line up 2 high ball glasses and place 1 cake circle in the bottom of each. Brush cakes with amaretto liqueur. Add 2 tablespoons of marinated strawberries and spread evenly. Using a different tablespoon, add a large dollop of whipped cream and spread evenly. Add a second layer of cake, pressing down lightly. Brush with amaretto liqueur. Add 2 tablespoons of marinated strawberries and spread evenly. Top with a large dollop of whipped cream, spreading evenly. Use remaining cake, cream and strawberries to create a more humble trifle dish.
Cover trifles with plastic wrap and refrigerate for impromptu indulgence, Keeping in mind that it will store for up to 2 days.
To serve, remove and discard plastic wrap. Grate amaretto cookie on top and sprinkle with demerara sugar.
