So...

my internet was out for 8 days. 8. DAYS. 192 hours. I am playing a serious game of Catch Up today. I've managed my emails and I'm working on my books now. I'm still working on the mess that is my blog. I've had to rearrange posts and...it's just a mess.

 

Long story short, NCDOT came along and mowed the roadsides which they do about once a month now that the grass is growing. However, the asshole who did it on the Fri the 3rd chewed up the box on the corner. I mean, DESTROYED it. Then AT&T is so fucking huge with their fucking call centers in Mexico and India (I'm guessing) that don't have clue one what is going on over here telling me that techs are fixing the problem. NO THEY WEREN'T. I have fucking eyes. There were no techs out here in this area until Tues afternoon and he didn't do shit. Anyway, I'm getting sidetracked. The box was destroyed Fri 5/3 at 10:00am. We finally got our internet back at 10:24am today. So there you have it. 8 days. 192 LONG hours without anything except my tiny smartphone. We saved the mobile data (for hotspots) for important things like watching the Carolina Hurricanes in the playoffs and Game of Thrones. My hubby used it to do his fantasy baseball. But that's about it. Ok, back to work I go.

Seriously...I’m Kidding
Seriously... I'm Kidding - Ellen DeGeneres

I Picked Up This Book Because: Seemed like a good idea at the time.

The Story:

Just a fun way to spend a few hours. Ellen is so fun loving, positive and entertaining. It’s hard to believe there is ever anything but joy in her home.

The Random Thoughts:

Favorite Quotes:

“You're never too old to play. You're only too old for low-rise jeans.”

 

If someone ever says you’re weird, say thank you.”



The Score Card:

4 Stars

Seriously... I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres
Seriously... I'm Kidding - Ellen DeGeneres

Seriously… I’m Kidding has been on my to-read list for a while now. When it finally came available to borrow from my library I jumped at the chance to listen to the audio version.

 

Narrated by Ellen herself, this audio book was just like listening to the opening monologue on her talk show. I enjoyed her observations on the world around her and admire her for keeping her jokes clean. Unlike most comedians, Ellen’s humor is suitable for all ages.

 

Although an enjoyable listen, I did find some of the rambling to be a bit much and settled on a 3 star rating. I would recommend Seriously… I’m Kidding to fans of Ellen DeGeneres.

Seriously, I'm Kidding written and read by Ellen DeGeneres
Seriously... I'm Kidding - Ellen DeGeneres

SERIOUSLY, I'M KIDDING was disappointing. 

 

It was funny and entertaining at times, but I didn't learn much about Ellen, other than she is allergic to penicillin. While I enjoy being entertained and I enjoy Ellen's sense of humor, I wanted to learn more about her. This is not the book for that.

 

I'll have to look into her previous books.
