Sorry for the absenteeism this week, but I’ve been busy with work and then I was out of town and although I brought my laptop with me I didn’t so much as crack it open. But I’m back now, after celebrating my 33rd year on this planet at Buffalo Wild Wings playing trivia with my brother Mike. This post will be short and sweet because I do have to work overnight tonight and tomorrow as well. And I have to catch up to my Google reader which insanely swelled at 600 and some odd posts. Good golly gee, people! You’ve been busy blogging!
I finished Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro recently and if you’re looking for a book that will make you laugh until you pee your pants, then this is it! I’m also almost done with Meg Cabot’s Insatiable and plowing through Little Bee by Chris Cleave for my book club. I’m trying, and failing, to stay away from all the Stephanie Plum mystery books I’ve gotten recently- I keep telling myself I’m going to save them for my 3 week beach vacation but it doesn’t help that I know that I’m lying.
I also got a verse novel called Who Killed Mr. Chippendale? to read for the verse challenge, but I still need two more. So if anyone has any ideas, other than Ellen Hopkins b/c I’ve read all of hers, then give me a shout out. And don’t forget to sign up for my give away- just click on the button on the right side of my blog!
I tweeted about this, but I’ll repeat myself here. I just spoke to my husband and he alluded to the fact that he got a bull dog puppy. Now I’m not sure if this is true because although I know he wants a bull dog A) we live in an apartment, B) he thinks we already have too many animals, and C) he’s unable to answer any questions about the dog and just keeps saying that I’ll see in the morning when I come home. I warned him that if I come home and there’s no cute little puppy running around I’m gonna be mad. He just laughed. Now I don’t want a bull dog, but the hubs does so I’ll suck it up for him since I made him get all the other animals. But I’m gonna be shocked if he actually got a puppy because it would be completely OUT of character for him. Ugh, have to go now, will let you know what happens. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s episode of As the Dog Barks…
