Both the phone and computer were a no show yesterday and most of today.
Withdrawal, thy name is Verizon.
They had 2 1/2 hours to go before they reached their "fix-it" deadline. Nice to see they're working hard on the weekend.
So, what did I do instead of communing with Blogger and Email?
a love story by Christopher Moore.
This is NOT like any love story I've ever read before.
I laughed out loud in too many spots to pinpoint the best. It had horror, more of the mind than any overt violence, and the romance? Well, that was plain wierd. So much so that I find myself recalling certain scenes with fondness.
The last line of the book floored me with it's weight.
Humor and Horror all wrapped up in one tight sentence.
Christophor Moore is a genius.
The second book I'll speak of, I only finished reading about thirty minutes ago.
You must have heard about this book. Didn't they make a movie about it?
For the record, my BOSS recommended this book to me. On my own, I don't think I'd ever have given it a second glance on the bookshelves.
Good thing I listen to voices of wisdom.
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
Very heartwarming. A young girls journey of discovery about her dead mother, herself and the world at large as it was going through the birth pangs from the fruits of the Civil Rights act. It was about 300 pages yet I still read it in one day.
The emotions, humor and truth grabbed me and wouldn't let go. I HAD to find out what was coming next. There were so many people that you come to care about in the book. I cried in a few spots, grinned in good cheer in others. Mostly I was in awe at the author's insight into human emotion.
Not a book I'd actively seek to read, but one I'm better off for having read.
It's not a wonder this book caused such a .... buzz. *grin*
Other than that, not much is happening.
I have two birthdays to plan.
Learned that Getting your Tires aligned is NOT the same as having them balanced.
The most interesting thing I observed yesterday is this:
Just because you are a man, doesn't mean you know all things automotive.
Because you are a man, you'll never admit it.
Ain't saying how I know this either.
