Christopher Moore & Mishka.

A kink has been thrown in my make-believe book club of one; I no longer feel the urge to conquer World War Z. Another book has arrived upon my doorstep and I believe a good follow up to Hero and When You Are Engulfed In Flames. I distinctly remember seeing the cover of this book in various bookstores and probably even online, but never really thought much except "Wow, neat cover." But last week when I Tweeted about the latest David Sedaris being the cure for the blues--- at least mine, one of my Twitter buddies informed me that Christopher Moore was the author who helped him when he was feeling crappy or needed a chuckle. Knowing that even once I finished the David Sedaris I would still need a grand arsenal of "feel good" literature, I immediately hopped on Amazon and ordered two of his novels.
I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to reading these. I have a huge book list upstairs of ultra serious novels and basically film text books. But its summer time and that means fun reading is in order!
The funny thing (at least to me) was that a few years ago my Mom bought me a book-a-day calendar for X-mas and Island of the Sequined Love Nun was one of the 365 books listed that year; and has been sitting in my Amazon Wish List ever since then, waiting to be whisked away into the arms of yours truly.
The real highlight of my day was when Mike reminded that Mishka NYC was having a super fabulous sale!!! And while I didn't partake in the cheapest shirts on sale, I did pick up 3 really amazing shirts, 2 for yours truly and 1 for Mike... I'm nice like that, ya know. I wish I could post photos of the shirts, but for some reason it just isn't working out for me. I guess I'll just have to take photos of 'em when they arrive in zee mail!
Whelp, I had better run upstairs and grab a shower... I was unable to nap today at work and I am beginning to feel both thirtsy and sleepy.
Good night!
