Monday Malarkey including Cheating Death Giveaway Results

Let's just do the giveaway thing first, since I seem to be moving slowly, today. The winners of Sanjay Gupta's Cheating Death are:

Rebecca N.
Anonymous (bgcchs)
Sandie Carol

Booklogged, I had to laugh when your name came up first after reading your, "Darn, no way will I win," comment.

I'll be in touch with all of you. If you're on the winners list and you don't receive an email from me by tomorrow, please use my address in the sidebar to send me your mailing address. Deadline for receipt of mailing addresses is Thursday morning.

Cat update (hence the photo, above -- unfortunately, I have no idea where it came from but don't you love it?) - The vet says kitty's eye is looking better, bump up the drops to 4 times per day. Wahoo! She's looking good for a girl that's 80 years old in cat years, if you ask me. We're back to the Kung Fu 180 spin at medicine time.

Kid update - Boy, teenagers are sleepy things, aren't they? Sleep, eat, eat, sleep. Amazing.

Book update - I finished reading Psmith in the City by P.G. Wodehouse, this morning, after staying up to read the next two Bone graphic novels in my whopper volume, last night. Love Wodehouse! Bone is a hoot! I tried to do a little reading on the porch, this afternoon, but the mosquitoes were pestering me. If I ever buy another house in this state, it's going to have a screened porch, period.

NaNoWriMo Warning (not update -- that'll be next month) - I am going to partipate in National Novel Writing Month, after two years of missing out. So, I anticipate a bit less frequent posting and very little commenting, during the month of November. I've done and won NaNo twice, so I know from past experience that I still read, still post but it's all-consuming. I would imagine that I'll mostly read books I'm not obligated to read -- very light books -- apart from a couple of scheduled reviews that I keep forgetting to add to my calendar (Reminder to self: Add dates of scheduled reviews to calendar). If you're participating in NaNo and would like to be my buddy, I'm signed up as "nancytoes".

Just walked in:

Wolverine: Violent Tendencies by Marc Cerasini from Simon Pulse - no idea how on earth I got this one, but Kiddo is very excited about it.
The Gift of an Ordinary Day by Katrina Kenison - won from Park Avenue Princess
I really need to do some reviewing, soon, but I don't know if I'll bother reviewing the books I read over the weekend. I think perhaps I'll wait till I've read all 9 Bone stories to write about the entire volume. Huh. We'll just see what comes up, this week. Every time I make plans I seem to change them, anyway. I think I'll just make this a wing-it week.

30 minutes till kitty eye-drop time. Oh, boy. This could be such fun. Is there anything more enjoyable than giving a cat two kinds of medicine at 6 different hours of the day? I do it for the Kung Fu Special, myself. I get a kick out of that (literally, at times).

Hope everyone has had a fabulous Monday!

Bookfool, Winger of It


  1. Glad to hear everyone's doing so well at your house! Congratulations to the winners!

  2. Kathy,

    Thanks. I need to go join the kitty. She's been holed up in my room on a nice, warm blanket.

  3. Wow! I'm so excited! Especially since I didn't think I had a chance. Wohoo!

  4. Booklogged,

    I know, isn't that hilarious? You did turn out to be #2, though. Hmm.

  5. It is an exciting past time! You'd think Miss Spooky'd be more grateful you're concerned for her health & well being. Glad she's doing so much better though!

  6. Carrie,

    The good news -- in a way -- is that she seems to now be totally blind in her bad eye so she can't see the drops coming. When she could still see (I was guessing just light and shadow, since the eye was such a mess), she flinched. Not so, anymore. But, the pressure seems to be lessening and I'd rather have a half-blind cat with two eyeballs than a cat who has to wear a patch, ya know?
