Maybe a Fun Give-Away

I'm having a hard time adjusting to this Windows Vista bullsh*t. Why are they changing my whole world? Why? Why?

I have no idea why I used an asterik instead of spelling out the word in that last paragraph. I guess I'm just not in the mood to cuss. Okay, the real story is that I think maybe I have it in the back of my mind that a certain relative might be reading and I don't want to offend or have him/her think I'm a heathen. Hee. I need to get over that. It could ruin everything. But it really doesn't make me a heathen just because I cuss like a sailor. So there. I'm sure it's in the Bible somewhere. I won't use asterisks anymore.

Last night I started the latest book I've bought, Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher. It's good. She reminds me of me without all the Hollywood stuff, which there's a lot of Hollywood stuff, so I guess she doesn't remind me of me very much after all. What? That didn't even make sense when I read it twice. Anyway, it's good, but it's short. The book is thin, and there's not very many words on a page. I'm about half-way through it, so I'll probably finish it tonight.

I have several things I'd like to offer up to anyone who wants them. Send me an email and which of these things you want. First email gets the loot. Be sure and include your mailing address in your email. You have until midnight on Friday, 1/9/09, to send an email. After that, they all go to Half Price Books. No scragglers. No exceptions.

1. A ton of old and new crochet pattern booklets. I have enough so that two people can have a stack if two people want them. I'll just randomly divide what I have.

2. The hardback book, "Wishful Drinking" by Carrie Fisher. (See link above.)

3. The hardback cookbook, "A Slob in the Kitchen" by Karen Duffy. (Very entertaining to read and some fun recipes to make.)

4. The hardback book, "The 5-Factor Diet" by Harvey Pasternak. (Just another diet book, but one that a lot of celebrities supposedly use.)

5. The softback cookbook, "Hershey's Classic Recipes." (I've never made anything in it, but it looks like some yummy stuff.)

6. The hardback book, "Become a Better You" by Joel Osteen. (Love him.)

That's it. We'll see how this goes. If it goes well, maybe I'll do it again. If it's a giant pain in the a*s, I mean ass, then I will never do it again.

Gotta run. Tootles.

  1. Your so funny! I have 5 & 6 also. This sounds like a great idea. If you are serious,I'd go for "A Slob in the Kitchen". I just regifted a bunch of Cookbooks full of great recipes but none I ever used to my future niece-in-law. With our White Elephant Christmas. It was so fun.
