B. E. Day 10-20-10

 After her bath, Bryce Eleanor wanted to put her pj's on by herself, but she got distracted by the Curious George DVD.  This morning, Fee helped her with her shoes before they left.
 SSSCat is what keeps Edgar, Lucy, & Stinker off the bed when B.E. isn't here.  She doesn't mind them on the bed, but it keeps the cat hair down during the week.  It just gives a loud blast of air that startles the cats (and me, if I forget to turn it off).  They avoid the room most of the time now.  :) 

I read Souless by Gail Carriger last week and immediately ordered the next two books in the series.  Such tongue-in-cheek fun! From Publishers Weekly: 
Starred Review. Carriger debuts brilliantly with a blend of Victorian romance, screwball comedy of manners and alternate history. Prickly, stubborn 25-year-old bluestocking Alexia Tarabotti is patently unmarriageable, and not just because she's large-nosed and swarthy. She's also soulless, an oddity and a secret even in a 19th-century London that mostly accepts and integrates werewolf packs, vampire hives and ghosts. The only man who notices her is brash Lord Conall Maccon, a Scottish Alpha werewolf and government official, and (of course) they dislike each other intensely. After Alexia kills a vampire with her parasol at a party—how vulgar!—she and Conall must work together to solve a supernatural mystery that grows quite steampunkishly gruesome. Well-drawn secondary characters round out the story, most notably Lord Akeldama, Alexia's outrageous, italic-wielding gay best vampire friend. This intoxicatingly witty parody will appeal to a wide cross-section of romance, fantasy and steampunk fans. (Oct.)


  1. was frustrated the bedroom pic didn't enlarge enough for me to see the titles of the books! the images with BE half in and out of her pj top are hysterical. Before reading the post I thought she was pretending to be something (like an elephant) not simply distracted. Have just finished Bitter in the Mouth and enjoyed it quite a lot...

  2. I thought she looked like an elephant, too! Will have to check out Bitter in the Mouth...


Good to hear from you!
