******WARNING: BLOG POSTS PROBABLY WILL CONTAIN PROFANITY******
I’m sick of this house smelling like a sick-room. It smells like hospital rooms, and it’s really starting to wear on me. Send scented candles, please.
God, I can’t even think straight. I can’t remember the last “good” sleep I had. One that wasn’t fraught with nightmares, or worse, pleasant dreams that left me aching and empty when I woke up. A sleep that wasn’t alcohol-induced. A sleep that lasted more than 5 hours. I’m so fucking tired.
I had a happy moment today that made me smile and call my brother excitedly. I’d been reading a new, non-zombie, book, by an author I’ve really enjoyed (who wrote one of my fave z-series). And then, an infected person ripped a character’s throat out with their teeth! I practically leapt with joy. Still not zombies, but a zombie-like attack. 😀 Yeah yeah, I’m weird, I know. But it put a huge grin on my face, for a little while. ^^
I use commas and the word “really” far too often.
If the directions say “take with a glass of water,” DRINK THE GODDAMN GLASS OF GODDAMN FUCKING WATER! ….
My brother finished book 4 of A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones), and that makes me happy. He’s a slower reader than I am, but then, he’s married with 3 kids. I sorta forgive him. But I can’t wait till he catches up. I could probably read all 5 books by the time he finishes book 5. And I kinda want to. I want to be fresh when he finishes, cuz there’s so much I want to talk about. Namely, Jon Snow’s parentage! The theories online… It’s crazy. I have hopes, but we’ll see. And the prophecies about Dany?? I wonder. I’m so excited to have someone to talk about the series with, it’s ridiculous. ^^;
On Books, which I love:
Best Z-fic, aside from the bibles of Max Brooks:
*J.L. Bourne’s Day by Day Armageddon series – not yet complete
*Mira Grant’s Feed trilogy and e-novellas
*Charlie Higson’s The Fear series – YA fic, series not completed, so much fun
*The Twilight books, especially Eclipse
*Fifty Shades of Grey – I really did not expect to like these
*Period romance, ie: Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights – I need to read more of these
Can’t Live Without:
*The Sword of Truth series
*The Dark Tower books
*The Left Behind series – God or not, a really awesome post-apoc series. Though the lack of realistic swearing is FUCKING annoying. 😛
How fucked-up is it that part of me hates being so, like-able?

Hand-picked dandelions are better than roses, any day. And an engagement/wedding ring of stainless steel or titanium means more than gold to me – a metal that’s useful, practical, and enduring. Gold is soft, Platinum is scarce. Need I say more?
