Have you ever been at work, minding your own business, when you stumble upon a name that makes you burst into laughter? Well, obviously it happened to me today. The name? Cowpie. The person’s name was XXXXX Cowpie.

I’m sure the people in the room wondered if I was psychotic.

Sin Slayer

Weekly library run

21 Jan

I took the girls to the library and found (as usual) there were only three books that interested me and gave them a box of books. Their paperback romance, sci-fi and fantasy sections are pathetic. Sci-fi and fantasy share a section of shelving. One section. Six standard rows. That’s it.

The paperback romance and fiction have a total of four sections of five rows, sad. 😦 The books are usually very old (the library budget was cut in half). I’ve still got a ton of boxes to go through and drop off at the library.

Meanwhile I borrowed:

  • Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse by Victor Gischler (Couldn’t get past the first four chapters.)
  • Charmed & Dangerous by Candace Havers
  • Dead Sexy by Tate Hallaway.

Wombs clenching

18 Jan

I’m almost finished reading a book by a popular author. No I won’t name the person, but I’m almost to the point where I want to go back and count the number of times this person has used the following sentence.
Her womb clenched.
Any comments?
