No, not here…


That’s right, today’s post is actually living over at Cam’s place. You see both Kir and Cam cajoled me into writing some fiction that didn’t involve dead people, evil dead people, creepy living people who see dead people, and/or the burdened spouses of dead people. In short, they tricked me into writing something good.

Please take a stroll over, but make sure you come back, letting me know how you liked it.

Assuming you liked it.

And assuming you can tell me without using swears.

OK, fine. You can go ahead and use swears.

Happy Friday!

“I don’t go to mythical places with strange men.”

Or better yet, “nobody got murdered before lunch. But nobody. People weren’t up to it. You needed a good lunch to get both the blood-sugar and blood-lust levels up.”

Or maybe even a bit of “it can hardly be a coincidence that no language on earth has ever produced the expression, ‘As pretty as an airport’.”

Listen, what all this nonsense is leading up to is merely that I’m taking the day off. Not because k~ told me too, but rather because I didn’t take the day off a week or two ago, when I drummed up my next review for 1,001 Books To Read Before You Die. Give us a click, and read on!

Yes, it’s another book from Douglas Adams. AND, there’s even one more review of his stuff to come after this.

What? I told you I had a man-crush on him, after all…

“Oh? And what’s so stinking about it?”

OK, I lied a little bit on Monday. I’m sorry.

Don’t get me wrong, I was suffering from writers block. But only a little. And even that only due to the fact that I had, just prior to then, plunked out my second-ever book review for The Review Crew (!!!).

Don’t believe me? Then check it here.

See? Told ya. I don’t know why you never believe me any way. Hell, I’ve even made up a page dedicated to it, based on the assumption that you’d want to go back multiple times to read these…

Now, I’ll bet those of you “in the know” can already tell which book I’m reviewing based solely on the title of this post. And if not, then here’s another clue to aid you, or if nothing else, at least help you to get your new wave boogie on.

I hope you enjoy both this song and the review. And I hope you don’t come back around here, simply to throw rotten canned vegetables at me if you don’t.

Happy Friday!

“because reason was in fact out to lunch”


Well now, this IS embarrassing!

I apologize for the mess, but I honestly had no idea you’d be by, seeing as my post for today is actually waaaaaaaay over at 1001 Books to Read Before You Die. And if nothing else, it should serve to clear up – by at least a touch – the title of this particular anti-post.

Yep, it’s my first-ever guest post (awesome!) and my first-ever honest to Goshicles book review (awesomener!) I do hope that you click through for a read! I also hope that you drop back in here for a spell, to tell me what you thought of the review as well!

And I promise that by the time you come back, I’ll have put pants on…
