Because I work in a library, these may never stop coming.



Shalala, don’t stop now, don’t try to hide it, how you want to… KISS THE EARL!















#SexyMistakes!  Ok, not gonna lie, this is both ridiculous and awesome.  I might actually read this at some point.  I’d also kinda like to feel the need to use that hashtag at some point in my life.  Seems like an important mistake to make at least once in your life…












Why this one?  Because it reminds me of my friends, that’s why.
















Once again, I’m twelve.  And this book is called Mocha Dick.  Haha, dick.
















Honestly, I think it’s that earnest, adoring look on the lady’s face, combined with the pensive, confused look on the guy’s face.  And somehow I think this is supposed to be a romance?  I dunno, confusion isn’t super romantic for me.  And neither are Amish beards while we’re at it.20160107_175624













What?! You’re giving it away Macbeth, quit tweeting about your murder plot!  And hashtags, srsly?  lol

















Adorable, but deadly.  Look at his little face!  Just look at it!  I’d be super dead.




















It’s a chihuahua in a tiny sailor outfit driving a boat!  Can you stand it?!  And his name is Pepe!!

















I’m not actually surprised that this book exists.  Indeed, by all rights, it belongs in this world more than I do.  Mostly I’m just super entertained that my library system carries copies(plural) of it.  This is amazing.  Such times we live in that you can go to your public library and pick up a book of Star Trek alien philosophy on war.








But what deserves to exist even more than the Klingon Art of War book?  The scratch and sniff wine book of course!  I leafed through it, and yes, I sniffed. It describes in detail many types of wine and how to tell them apart by appearance and by smell.   Such a combination of sophisticated connoisseur and childish glee may never have existed in book form until now, and my library owns copies.  You’re welcome.  I would have checked this out if a co-worker hadn’t beaten me to it.




Baby it’s cold outside… not really because this is Arizona. But I’m a desert rat, and I want soup. And because this is Arizona, it’s tortilla soup. 🙂
Tortilla Soup

1 can of corn, drained(or you can use about a cup of frozen)

1 can of diced tomatoes

1 can of black beans(drained and rinsed)

3 or 4 cups of veggie broth, or 1 of those aseptic containers of broth

1 small can of roasted green chiles, chopped

3 or 4 cloves of fresh garlic, minced

1 red pepper

1 green pepper(I usually swap this one out for an orange pepper since I don’t like the green ones)

1 yellow pepper

3 onions

fresh cilantro, chopped

shredded cheese for topping

tortilla chips

Put a tablespoon of oil on the bottom of a big soup pot and heat on medium high.  Chop up the peppers and onions, and saute them for a minute or two.  Add the garlic and saute a minute more. Pour in the broth, green chiles, tomatoes, corn, and black beans and heat to boiling.  Turn off the heat and ladle the chunky soup into bowls.  Top bowls with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and cilantro.  Pour a little broth from the soup over the top to melt the cheese.  Now you have a lovely bowl of healthy, colorful soup to make up for all the holiday goodies you’re going to eat later!

And just because I’ve started collecting photos again, here are some more silly book covers:

Dump Cakes by Cathy Mitchell Yes, I am 12 years old, and it is hilarious to me that a marketing department allowed this to happen.

CAM00792 It’s a choose your own adventure! Just like the game!  Remember how you used to name your all your party members after your friends, and watch them die one by one around you?  Was that just me?

CAM00757 You have to look closely, but the title of this gem is “internet-linked Romans.” Those Romans were way more high tech than anyone knew!

CAM00931 Heh. Heh heh. Yeah, still 12.

Night Probe! by Clive Cussler  Ummmmm. . . as a co-worker pointed out, that exclamation point just adds something that maybe it wasn’t meant to. . . heh heh.  Still 12.

CAM00761 They’re taxidermy bunnies!  At school!  This is actually a really interesting, if terribly disturbing read… My fear and fascination with death, wrapped up in pictures of animals…

CAM00755  And the winner is this book.  I should have looked up the copyright while I was in the thrift store, but I didn’t.  This is just, I mean… It’s Gorbachev the anti-christ!  Someone was actually serious about this!!

Happy Holidays!
