Banned Books Week

In honor of Banned Books Week I thought I would write a little blurb.  Because I seem to like blurbs lately.

I think banning books is absolutely a waste of time and money.  I think there are greater causes that we can fight for. Like, equal wages for women.

To learn more about what books have been challenged and/or banned, please take a look at the American Library Associations's website.

Always Remember


I think this is something that most of us have a hard time remembering.

I know I sure do.  So remember, embrace your "you"ness!

You're perfect the way you are.

If someone give you shit about it, then punch them in the fucking face. :)

P.S. I should probably be an inspirational speaker.

Pepper, MD

So, do you remember that dog I rescued a few weeks ago?

Well, I told the owner that if she ever needed to find her a new home that we would take her.  I said this thinking nothing would actually come of it.

Then about two weeks later I get an email from the owner asking me if I was serious about taking her.  Long story short, we have a new member of the family.

And she's been renamed (because we sure as hell weren't keeping Blanca)...

Get it? Dr Pepper? It's my favorite!

Now I shall show you some adorable pictures.

I'm not sure how this is comfortable.
Alright, she kind of looks like a demon right here.
She stares a lot. It's creepy.
Yep, that's my shoulder she's sleeping on.
And we haven't forgotten about our other babies. They're still around.

They're definitely still adjusting to the tiny dog running around the house.

My sleepy babes.


Lately, all I think about is books.

Reading books.

Buying books.

Organizing my books.

Looking for books on Goodreads.

Looking for books on Paperback Swap.

Staring at my books hoping that I'll be able to get through all of them before I die.

I think I have a problem.  I'm obsessed with books.

Which is why I've been completely neglecting my blog.

I'll be back at some point, I'm sure. I hope.

Also, I like this ad.  Maybe an idea for a new tattoo?
