Sourcery  - Terry Pratchett

 

An aspiring poet calls her:

 

"...peach-buttocked jewel of the desert dawn."

 

And this pops into my head:

Mort  - Terry Pratchett

 

I don't know if it's just my mood today, but these phrases are popping out like dandelions.

 

While trading flirting insults with Deaths adopted daughter:

 

"Mort glanced sideways at the top of Ysabell's dress, which contained enough puppy fat for two litters of Rottweilers, and forbore to comment."

 

He was smart enough not to say that one out loud.

And now we have an ointment, cooked up by a wizard who drank too much 'potency' elixir so he had to soak in a cold water trough, that:

 

 

"Provides your wild oats while guaranteeing a crop failure..."

 

Snorts and giggles and winks for everybody!

I'd be getting some odd looks if I wasn't home alone today.

Princesses ... so noble they could pee through a dozen mattresses.

 

LOL

The Light Fantastic  - Terry Pratchett

 

This is some weird shit man.

And I want some of that luggage.

 

 

 

Umm, yeah, you know, about that thing?

The Colour of Magic  - Terry Pratchett

 

????

Uh

Okay

Snort

OMG Seriously?

Facepalm

sigh

WHAT!?

Snigger

LOL 

Yeah, but, now what?

 

Good lord.

 

I thought Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy was, well, just, I don't know. Jury is still out.

I thought Ebeneezer and his Eternal Apprentice were silly, though loads of fun. Ferrets and Brownie Power!

I thought the whole concept of Xanth was a bit odd, but if you like puns you're good to go.

I love puns.

 

This, ... this.

Brings it to a whole new level.

World of Trouble: The Last Policeman Book III - Ben H. Winters

 

It never occurred to me to indicate what team i was on.

Fixed.  : )

 

After some thought, I'm going to use this one for a Victim card.

Henry rarely, if ever steps on the bad side, sometimes to his own detriment.

 

 

 

********************************************************************

Henry is incredibly single minded.

His sister got duped big time.

As long he's sniffing out 'stuff' Cortez is happy a as a clam most of the time. 

Henry was smart enough to leave the dog behind safe with an Amish family.

 

At least the whining didn't last long.

 

I can only use one at a time unless I'm collecting, so I'm going to hold this one for a bit.

Kill Your Darlings (Yellow team)

Countdown City  - Ben H. Winters

 

77 days left til the end of the world as we know it and he feels fine.

LOL  Couldn't resist.

 

An old baby sitter from his childhood wants him to track down her missing husband.

 

People are just up and dropping everything to do wish fulfillment stuff, but she thinks Henry can track this guy down because she thinks he's just off doing something silly and noble and he just needs to be asked to come home.  

 

He isn't even on the police force anymore.

 

Henry is way too nice for his own good.

I don't think the word no exists for him unless he's talking to his sister, and even then it's iffy.

 

 

 

Guess for Cause of Death:  shot with an arrow

World of Trouble: The Last Policeman Book III - Ben H. Winters

 

Hey! Hey!

It’s my lucky day!

Another whiner!

 

Henry started out so nicely.

 

Book 1 was mostly just doing his job:

It’s the end of the world and we know it, and i feel fine.

 

Book 2 kinda morphed into

I’ll be your candle on the water

or maybe

You’re the wind beneath my wings

Depending on if you think about him or the lady who asked him to find her missing husband.

 

Now?

He’s trying to find his sister.

He’s whining.

Everything is his fault.

Even though he wasn’t even there.

 

His flaky sister went all conspiracy and took off , she asked him to come with her even though he’s half bled out from a gunshot wound to the artery in the upper arm. She apparently didn’t care that he’ll die if they don’t get him to a hospital.

His fault - he left her.

 

The nutty chick in the abandoned clothing store.

His fault because he was there a couple weeks before looking for info and the asshole running the place abandoned her.

  

Girl in a clearing with her throat sliced.

His fault because he wasn't there earlier to prevent it.

 

I can blame him for the dog being injured (a feisty little bichon friese) since he should have left it behind, but come on.

The Last Policeman  - Ben H. Winters

 

Strangely compelling story about the world about the year leading up to an asteroid strike.

 

The only officer left who seems to actually want to do his job while everyone else is taking off to do whatever.

 

Guess for Cause of Death:  Crushed in a bad tesseract

Skitter - Ezekiel Boone

 

Man I feel like a need a HOT shower.

 

If the idiots wanting to bomb everything have their way there won't be anything left to come back to.

 

Guess for Suspect:  Stephen King

Skitter - Ezekiel Boone

 

Giant man eating spiders.  

Some are softball sized.

shudder

 

Apparently the sound of a softball sized spider being stepped on is crushing potato chips then gushing yogurt.  ACK!

 

I can't decide who would survive a spider apocalypse.

Those who aren't creeped out because they think spiders are cool (they are as long as they aren't ON ME or in my house), or those who are because no spider would get anywhere close.  DIE you creepy thing!

 

I feel like I need a HOT shower and a flamethrower.

 

Going anywhere where there might be spiders is going to be unpleasant for a couple days after I finish this.  And I have spiders everywhere here on the farm.

In the barn, in the coops, in the garden, in the trees, on the fences and gates, the outdoor patio, in the grass.

 

Thank god it's still too cold for most except the cellar spiders in the garage.

That's what husbands and sons are for.  LOL

Meat Camp - J.T. Warren, Scott Nicholson

 

Adapted from Scott Nicholson’s original horror screenplay.

I hope the movie was better.

 

A fun story about last chance kids going zombie.

The goat made me laugh.

We never do find out exactly what caused it though.

The moldy biscuits?  Then what about the dog?

 

Not for the squeamish.

 

Suspect:

Meat Camp - J.T. Warren, Scott Nicholson

 

 

The cook is cooking up his own intestines while they're still attached.

EEEwww!!    LOL

And he's worried about the biscuits going moldy.

 

I really need to read more by this author.

Blood of Dragons - Robin Hobb

 

Yay!  Kalo ate Hest!  I hope Kalo didn't get indigestion.

A most amusing scene.

Too bad Alise and Sedric don't get the satisfaction of knowing that asshole got eaten and is permanently out of their lives.

 

Cause of Death: 

 

 

 

 

Kill Your Darlings

City of Dragons  - Robin Hobb

 

Less whining all around in this one.

 

Alise is growing up, and I hope Hest drowns.

Sintara is more arrogant than ever - if I was Thymara I'd tell her to piss off now that she can hunt on her own.
