I'm afraid this will be a blog-free zone for the next week. My parents are flying into town tomorrow afternoon, so that means no posting for the entire week they are here. Sad, but true. In the meantime, I'm going to send you off with a hodge-podge of musings.
First, I got the new Romantic Times yesterday. A surprise since last month's issue didn't show up until around the 20th. Now, I expect RT to be something of a fanzine. I mean, it's not Ms. so I usually prepare myself for one side of the cover to be some oily, dumb-struck looking piece of beefcake. No problemo - I keep that side of the cover face down. So what the hell am I supposed to do with this month's issue which features these two oily mothers?
Seriously, who needs (or wants) to see this?!
It makes me long for the day when that woman wrote in complaining about the Nicole Jordan cover on the front of the magazine. She-it, at least that one had a little class to it. These guys just look sleazy. Note to self: Hide magazine from The Boyfriend. He would very likely question my sanity. Or my feminism. Or both.
Sorry about the retinas folks, but if I have to go blind, so do you.
Important dates to keep in mind while I'm not online pestering everybody. The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen lands on September 12. I have a Romancing The Blog column going live on September 13. And my younger sister has a birthday on September 15. Go, go Lil' Sis!
What else? Am I the only person on the planet who's brain hasn't been sucked into the J.R. Ward series? Apparently yes. I read Lover Eternal and frankly am not getting it. Sure, hunky guys but..... um..... whatever. But I'm sure that's what you all say about westerns - so Viva La Difference!
Until next week, happy reading.
