It’s Random Friday where I chat about whatever pops into my head when I sit down to do this post.
You all probably know by now that I am a big fan of Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts series. If you missed it I did two guest posts with Wicked Lil Pixie over at SmokinHotBooks. We did The Top 10 Reasons You Need to Read Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane and a Downside Inspired Fashion Show. It was fun and I hope you’ll stop by and take a look if you didn’t already.
Speaking of Downside, I heard through the grapevine, better known as twitter, that Stacia Kane is thinking about doing some Downside gear? She wants to know what you think. I’d love a T-shirt with a downside bar logo. Or a Downside Army coffee cup? I’m feeling it.
Tori from Smexy Books went to RWA this year and she did a fun post over on the blog about her experience. She had a good time and I admit, I’m kind of jealous. The problem is I’m shy to the point where it’s debilitating and events like this make me want to turn inside out and then disappear. So I guess for now I’ll live vicariously through my bloggy friends and enjoy your pictures and stories.
I’m sure most of you know Katiebabs from Babbling About Books and More. She was recently published under the name K.T. Grant. I’ve read her debut book Lovestruck and will have a review on the blog next week as well and an interview and giveaway! Be sure to stop by and check it out.
I have weird ears. There, now you know. The reason I mention it is I am a lover of audio books. I love to listen while I do dishes and other fascinating household chores. But in order to do that I need ear buds for my iPod. The standard issue ear buds that came with my iPhone just don’t work for me. They don’t fit and it pisses me off when they keep falling out. It’s just wrong. So, I bought myself a set of SkullCandy ear buds. They were perfect…until they quit working. *cries* I don’t know what happened, they just quit. Whyyyy? I can buy more and these might even be under warranty but still, they quit on me! I feel rejected. Stupid ear buds.
Anyone know why my blog feed is so slow lately? My blog posts used to hit my Google reader right after I posted. But I noticed that lately I’m not seeing my posts for hours. Or even longer. Do I need to beat my feed into submission or something? Someone help me out here.
I love clever blog names. In glancing through my Google reader here are a few of my favorite blog titles:
- Loose Knickers and Window Lickers
- Crakin’ Spines and Takin’ Names
- Monroe With a Twist
- Red Headed Book Child
- Lurv a la Mode
What are you favorite clever blog titles?
So I did it. I pre-ordered a Kindle 3 and the cool cover with book light.
Sadly, they are out of stock already and they haven’t even started shipping them out yet! So, I’m in the queue. Not like I’m desperate, I do have an e-reader but still. The cool thing about the cover though is the light is powered by the Kindle, so no batteries! *loves* I’ll be getting my cover before I get my Kindle 3. Torture.
