While every other blogger on the entire planet is busy burning up their keyboards posting all the stellar awesomeness they've recently received, this is a tongue-in-check mini rant - probably fever induced because I'm still sick with whatevertheheck's going around/allergies/plague.
So hugs and kudos to the rest of you lucky stinkers, and as for moi:
Here is what I did NOT get in my mailbox this past week:
Zombies Vs Unicorns
Unicorns Vs Gnomes
Gnomes Vs Mockingjays
Zombies Vs Radiant Unicorns
Before I Fall
Before I Trip
After I Trip and Fall at the Mall
Sunscreen Vs Zombies
Hungry Zombies Vs Thirsty Unicorns
My Soul To Keep
My Soul To Sell
My Soul to Lend at 13.7% Interest Compounded Daily
Porta Pottys and Partial Zombies
In fact, I did not get ANY book that started with an adjective, or an adverb, or even a noun/pronoun.
I DID get a flyer for a clothing sale, my utility bill, a newspaper three days out of date, and a small spider that I pretended I didn't see.
Maybe he ate my books?
To all of you with TBR piles stretching halfway around the equator, you make me sick. With jealousy LOL
The only pile I have stretching anywhere is a pile of laundry I've ignored while gluing all those ^%$#@ wreaths.
Okay, okay. Actually I was fibbing for effect! :O
I did get a few terrific books in the mail, for which I am a zillion percent happy/thrilled/grateful! YAY!
Right now I'm reading Bloodthirsty (a very funny, enjoyable read) and Dying To Live - which is by far one of the better post-apocalyptic zombie books I've come across.
If I weren't so lazy/puny I'd take some pix. Maybe later, I dunno. Have to wait until the *purple stuff (what my family calls Dimetapp) kicks in.
*True story: during the better part of their lives, I dosed the kids with Dimetapp when they were sick (the doctor had recommended it, and it seemed to work well). Eventually they referred to it as *the purple stuff*, and family legend states that it cures everything from a head cold to a compound fracture (not true, but the kids swear that at the first sign of ANY problem I haul out the bottle of purple stuff).
Advanced leprosy? Purple stuff
Marital problems? Purple stuff
Overdraft? Purple stuff
Dog got worms? Purple stuff
Flat tire? Purple stuff
Nuclear holocaust? Purple stuff
Zombie insurrection? Purple stuff
My beloved kids are full of sh*t. I have never used the stuff to ward off a bad case of zombies.
