By Stephen King, is my new reading material ...It has 1072 pages, and a cast of 69 counting the dogs. I'm on page 100 and so far it's really good. But I'm already confused by who the people are. About the time I figure out who they are they get kilt. But so far this may be on of the better Stephen King books..Lately some of his stuff was just crap. Gerald's Game, The Girl who Loved somebody are examples of books that should never have been written. I weep for the trees who gave up their lives for those books.. I am also reading the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It's really good. When I first tried to read it I got about 8 pages and decided I didn't give a fuck. Took it back to the library and said not interested. Nancy said it was one of her favorite books of the year. So I waited a few months and tried it again, and must have not just been in the right frame of mind when I tried it the first time, because this time it hooked me right off. So when I get confused with King's cast of thousands, I switch over to the other book. I also just finished reading Paul Shaffer's book "We'll Be Here For the Rest of Our Lives." It was fantastic. He really has a lot of great stories to tell, and as I'm a big fan of the Letterman Show and of Paul and his band I loved reading his stories. about people that appeared on the show, and from when he was in Canada, on SNL, in Hollywood, and his love for New York. He isn't afraid to tell about his fuck ups as well as his triumphs.. I like his meeting with Bob Dylan a lot. I'm still waiting for Patrick Rothfuss to write the second book to The Name Of The Wind and I left so many smart ass remarks on his Face Book that he told me I was rude. I thought to myself..'no, what's rude is telling people your new book will be out in the spring of 2009 and it's November and it's still not out. Plus no sign of it coming at all. He's so busy running all over the place being big shot author that he's not writing. Maybe he has writers block..if so..tell me, I'd be more inclined not to be 'rude'...But at least I have something to look forward to, Nelson De Mille has a book out in June of 2010. The sequel to Lion's Gate. I can't wait..I fecking love his books..Just sent him an email today too and said that I had taken a long time to figure out just the right way to tell him how I felt about his books..."I fucking love them.".. I'm sure he'll be impressed.
Babs and I had a nice(birthday) dinner at the new (old) Restaurant called Nors Sausage and Burger's.
It's in the old place where the West Station Grill and Spittoon Bar was. No waitress's..you get your menu and then order it..The upstairs is where they have the 'bar' and they have karaoke on Thursday night.. We were glad that we ate early and got out of there before I had to listen to a karaoke version of Smoke on the Water or some Czech folk song. Babs had sage sausage burger with American cheese on regular bun with fries and I had garlic sausage burger with jalapeno jack cheese on jalapeno bread..It was so good..The french fries are pretty good. First I've had in months..as it's one of those things I just don't eat any more, unless it's a ' I don't care if I do die, I'm having the fries,' days and oh my Goddess, the jalapeno bread was excellent. So between the bread and the fries and the Dublin Dr Pepper for lunch I was way over my carb limit for about a week. But fuckit..I only have a birthday once a year..thank the Goddess. Babs got me my elephant that I wanted. It was at Family Dollar and every time I'd see it I'd say.."oh, I want the 'elfphnut' which is how Maryjo used to say elephant and I still do. Got a Santa for my collection and a can of Danish treats(which I ate every fucking one of , carbs be dammed.) I love the birthday bag, it lights up and plays happy birthday. It freaks the animals out..Dexter who isn't afraid of anything arched his back up and ran under the bed. Chewy just cowered and barked at it. Works better than the spray bottle.
Well have to run..Jessica O. is coming over and bringing baby Kenna for a visit. Hope you all have a great weekend. I just reread this post. Some boring shit.
