I'm sure by Monday we'll have lots more details, but for today I wanted to talk about some books. Remember - we're all about culture. We don't want to lose our "Learning is Fun" grant money, now do we?
Oh, and before we go any further, my eyes are all hazy and itchy. It could be allergies, but I am pretty sure the haze is an indicator that I am developing cataracts right this minute as we speak. Just sharing. Back to books.
|Over here at DTC, Smartass|
is the new Black
I have told several friends that they MUST read Bitter is the New Black, by Jen Lancaster. Some have and some have not. The have nots need to get on it. It will bond us and bring us closer. It is pee-in-your-pants funny (in a good way). The subtitle of this book is: Confessions of a Condescending, Egomanical, Self-Centered, Smartass, or Why You Should Never Carry a Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office. I mean this book screams funny from the front cover. You will want to hang out/drink with Jen by the time you are done reading this book. At the very least, you will want to read her other books. The other books are also very good, but I think her last one, My Fair Lazy, is the closest in awesomeness to her first one.
|Celia refers to her husband|
as Duh Hubby, like that's
his name. Bahahaha.
As awesome as these two writers are, I do not want to leave out the author, whose book I have not read. This woman is a psychic, whose, let me get this right, spirit guide's name is Francine. The author's name is Sylvia Browne. Sylvia apparently has made many predictions over the years and seems to specialize in celebrities. She is none too impressed (are you remembering to read this with a southern accent) with other psychics who are just general guessers.
|I am so mad I didn't |
think of this first!
If she has such good connections, I'd like her to check in on Houdini. That guy spent years and years and tons of money trying to communicate with his dead mother, to no avail. I would like Ms. Browne to let us know how he made out when he got to heaven and located his mother. Maybe if I write in to her she will find out for us.
Lastly, I want to thank everyone again for reading. I love seeing everyone's comments on here and the Facebook page. I am having a fun time writing and it's great that people seem to be having a fun time along with me. xo
