Fighting wif' hard headed editor




Y'all,

I'se tryin to wrestle a hard haided editor to the ground, so I'se busy.

Mebbe ya' got somethin' to say? Happy talk or deep thoughts? Jes' a personal gripe or two or ten? What ya' bought at the Circuit City bankruptcy sale?

Review the last book ya read or HA! I got it--what book does ya WANT to read? Comin' soon to a porch near you: "Title for the Book I Want to Read Next" contest.

Heh, oh yeah, this might perk thangs up.

Talk to me, please! Distract me.

Go Aunty! Wrestle that editor. And that's coming from someone who on occasion serves as one :o).

My biggest gripe these days is the subject of my last post. So instead of elaborating, I will say that today is a beautiful, warm, and sunny day and I'm going to appreciate it and be thankful I'm not in charge of the universe.

Just finishing up Shadow of the Wind. Really like it. Sort of Daphne du Maurier meets Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Book I'm most looking forward to reading next is The Story of Edward Sawtelle.

"True Confessions: How we in the media conspired to win elections for the democrats."

Author: An Insider who participated and provides documentation.

Yes, I know Bernie Goldberg has made a cottage-industry out of SOMEWHAT similar books. But he's an OLD guy and worked at a network a LONG time ago. And he wasn't a participant.

There's no doubt in my mind that the situation now is MUCH worse and the leftist "reporters" work DIRECTLY WITH democrat campaigns and George Soros MUCH more closely than in Goldberg's day.

Hell, Soros wasn't even a media player back in Goldberg's day. And the inter-web was in it's infancy.

You can take him/her Aunty. Go for the pressure points.

I'm reading "Blasphemy", by Richard Preston right now.

Like this is even a contest? Aunty in Round 2 KO.

Just finished re-reading Lonesome Dove. Currently reading Sauces: Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making by James Peterson (updated version).

Would love to read the Illustrated History of Frogs, Butterflies, and Birds and Bird Eggs.

Boudreaux died and was on his way down to Hell. In anticipation, the Devil turned up the thermostat to make it extra warm for Boudreaux. When Boudreaux arrived, the Devil asked, "Hey Boudreaux, how do you like the heat down here?"
Boudreaux says, "Mais, it's just fine. It reminds me of Bayou PonPon in July."

That made the Devil mad. That night, he turned the thermostat up all the way it could go. Man it was hot! When Boudreaux woke up, the Devil asked him, "NOW how do you like it down here?"

Boudreaux says, "Mais, it's fine. It reminds me of August on Bayou Lafourche."

As you might expect, that made the Devil all the more mad. Well, that night, he turned the thermostat down all the way it could go! The whole place frosted over. Icicles started forming from the rafters. When Boudreaux woke up, the Devil asked him, "How you like it NOW, Boudreaux?"

Boudreaux, shivering, through blue lips, says, "Mais cher, I'm one happy Cajun!"

The Devil was infuriated! He yelled, "What do you mean you're one happy Cajun?!!"

Boudreaux, still shivering says, "The Saints done won the Superbowl!"

pamokc said...

Aunty, my money is on you to come out on top in the rasslin' match.

Right now, I'm flipping between two books. A Tale of Two Cities (haven't re-read this in ages and I'm really enjoying it, almost like reading for the first time) and a new Dick Francis novel (English horse racing mystery).

What I'd like to see as a title for a book one day: Pam's Post-Winning Lottery Diary.
