Clocks go back tonight.

Usually a cause for celebration but it doesn’t make any difference to me this year as I am day off tomorrow. Pah! Still, I can stay up later reading tonight and I might have a chance of waking up at a semi-reasonable hour tomorrow.



Today was a great day. A great weather day.

It was dark and raining and really, really windy. I love those kind of mornings. It feels wild and mysterious and I feel as almost anything can happen.

It also reminds me that it really is Autumn. My favourite season.

I know, I know, I’m weird. I’m not a sun person, I’m a wind person. I love it when it’s really blowing and your hair is whipping round your head in a mini-vortex and the air is biting but not really cold. It invigorates and excites me.

Yay for Autumn.


I got this in my email today. Usually I just delete these things cause I can’t be arsed but this made me laugh. And I did forward it on to some peeps.

“True” Friendship – None of that Sissy Crap

Are you tired of those sissy “friendship” poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card-Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad –I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the fu*king bastard who made you sad.
2. When you are blue — I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
3. When you smile — I will know you got laid.
4. When you are scared — I will take the piss out of you about it, every chance I get.
5.When you are worried — I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whinging.
6. When you are confused — I will use little words.
7. When you are sick — Stay away from me until you are well again. I don’t want whatever you have.
8. When you fall — I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.
9. This is my oath…. I pledge it to the end. “Why?” you may ask; “because you are my friend”.

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.


(P.S) I posted my first review over at Book Pron. feel free to go over and throw derisory comments at me for my presumptions. *wink*

Lazy Bitch

I have come to the conclusion that I am just a lazy bitch.

Even though I failed in my Sloth quest I am still a lazy bitch.

I am sitting at my computer and I am FREEZING cause the window is open and it feels like 40 below freakin’ zero and I just can’t be bothered to close it. I mean, my fingers are turning blue it’s so cold. Lazy Bitch.

I made up a new blog for all my bookish ramblings and I have a gutful to talk about and I’m here rambling about being…you guessed it. A lazy bitch. Cause it’s easy and takes no real effort.

It might also have to do with the fact that I got about 3 hrs sleep last night. I had to stay up to finish a book.

I’m making my way around all Romancelandia and reading blogs and I am thinking of comments and then not posting them…why? It would mean typing coherently. Lazy bitch.

You know what, I would get it put on my gravestone but I really can’t be bothered. Lazy Bitch.

Book Pron

It’s where all my book-related ramblings are going to be from now on.

It’s still under construction but come over and say Hello!

Sloth Watch Day 2

I am finding being a lazy bum quite difficult.Yesterday after finishing ‘Minx’ I finally settled on Linda Howard’s ‘Mr. Perfect.’ That decision took me about an hour. I got to about chapter nine but then I had to put it down. By this time it was about 5pm. I just couldn’t read anymore.

So much for my¬† lifelong dream of winning the lottery, going to the bookstore (and Amazon), buying every book I can get my hands on and living in luxury, reading for the rest of my life. I couldn’t even manage 48 hours.

So in keeping with my slothful goals for the day, I rolled over, sat on the edge of my bed and surfed the net for the next few hours. I even started a new blog over on Blogger. My brilliant idea was to do a books only blog over there. Original, huh? I’m a sheep but they have so many cool widgets. Not like the stuffy old folk over here at wordpress.

So although I was whiling away my time doing something frivolous, I wasn’t reading. Pah!

Still I have all day today to finished Mr Perfect and The Lost Duke Of Wyndham and Virgin River. Three books in one day? I doubt it’s gonna happen, especially since I have decided to get off my lazy ass and do some laundry and go food shopping. Maybe even buy a new bra today.

Enforced inactivity just isn’t my thing I suppose. Still at least I had one day of it.

Sloth Watch: Update

Ok, so there were some kinks in my plan. Although I thought of food and loo breaks, I didn’t quite think of everything. While it’s fun to laze about reading, it’s not so much fun if you smell like day old socks.

I had to get out of bed to have a shower. I have put on clothes. Getting back into pajamas after a shower seemed a little more decedant than I am prepared to be.

BUT…I did go back to my room, lie down and finish Minx. Which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I did a bit of surfing and I am now going back to start on a little category romance. I need a break from the Dukes and Barons for a while. I really need a new paranormal to get my teeth into but there just don’t seem to be any great new ones around….

Any suggestions?

PS I am soo glad my cover of Minx looked like above and not this montrosity. Although I like that Rufus got a shout-out too! Heh!.
