Well, we are now well into December 22nd and as far as I know, none of us have turned into cumquats, slugs, or toadstools. One day, I’m going to sit down and make a list of all the supposed Armageddons and Raptures I’ve seen come & go. I’m not even 30, but I can think of at least 5 off the top of my head. The Mayan Apocalypse yesterday, last year’s Rapture, Y2K, Heaven’s Gate, and another one in the 90’s that was predicted by some random fundamentalist.
There isn’t really a point to all of this beyond the fact that I’m glad that you’re all still with me! I was going to have a review for you this morning, but the book I started was pretty bad & I had to put it down for a while or scream. One of the (very few) downsides of reviewing books is that on the extremely rare occasion I find one I can’t stand…I still have to finish it. However, it turns out that I downloaded this one by mistake & it is actually eight years old, so I don’t see any reason to waste your time with a review for such an out-of-date book. Especially one this bad! So it now has the ignominious distinction of being one of three books I hated enough to stop reading completely. I won’t name names, though. I didn’t finish it, so it wouldn’t be right to call out the author like that. And if that rationalization also gets me off the hook for reading it? Well, I suppose I’ll just have to find a way to live with the crushing guilt. In the meantime, I’ll try to find a recent read to review for you!
Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow; I have a new weekly item I’m going to run for the first time tomorrow and I can’t wait to share it with you!!!*
*I have no idea why I’m so exclamation point happy all of a sudden. It’s as if writing this blog has turned me into a writer on a children’s program and everything absolutely MUST be said ENTHUSIASTICALLY AT ALL TIMES!!!
