Roll 19: 4 (double 2) Main Street
The Dance Of The Voodoo Handbag - Robert Rankin

 

 

A fun read, reminiscent of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy with it's seemingly completely unrelated scenes.  

 

A private eye gets stuck in some sort of virtual reality and has to escape to save the world by using the least most obvious least most obvious way so the guy who put him in there doesn't stop him.  Why he doesn't call it the second least most obvious way I don't know.  Maybe that's too obvious.

 

 

It was also Free Book Friday when I rolled, but this particular books covers both options so I'm going with the obvious one. Or the least obvious.

Hopefully this will be better than the last two.

OT: My shadow and my new handbag

Yesterday, my sister and went shopping for groceries. It was relatively hot, things worked out fine and I was more or less content with the little outing. However, lately I've begun to whine a lot about having put on so much weight - rather unexplainedly, I think. It's occurred to me that it might be a side effect of my medication against high blood pressure, that I got from being pregnant. I'm not sure about that, but it might be an explanation. In any case, I'm pretty unhappy about looking the way I look. For instance, I've had to put away most of my clothes and had to try and get new ones (not quite successfully, at least yet). Anyway, to cut to the chase, I decided to take a photo of my shadow, or at least part of it because it seems to be better looking than I am.

 

 

I've also started using my new handbag. It's pretty big and not my usual style (I'm not really a handbag person, to be honest). I've just been thinking I should develop my Moomin Mama traits. :) I'm going to be carrying around more stuff, that maybe my children will need (other than the contents of of the changing bag).

 

 

 

What do you think? Is it too big for me? I thought it would be difficult to carry it,

without a shoulder strap, but it wasn't. 

 

Silly trivial stuff, I know. Just ignore this post if you think it's boring.

My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag . . . and Other Things You Can't Ask Martha
My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag . . . and Other Things You Can't Ask Martha - Jolie Kerr This book is great. It's maybe a bit on the basic side if you, like me, grew up with parents who were very meticulous about cleaning, but even if, I do recommend reading it.

So, this book covers basic and some not so basic household cleaning-- kitchen, bathroom, laundry, dishes, to retainers, stains, and the titular barf in the handbag. The author has a really great tone that not only is very reassuring (you CAN do it!) but is also fast-paced and informative, but not so informative a reader will start freaking out again. She does a really great job of breaking down the science behind things like different types of stains, for example.

I definitely recommend reading this books, and then maybe gifting a copy to anyone who's getting started on cleaning their stuff on their own-- recent grads, recent apartment/house acquirers, etc. I left this book feeling excited and capable of tackling my previously kind of overwhelming kitchen, which is TRULY amazing.
