Seriously, I have a bunch of random stuff...

Random #1: One of our neighbors is incredibly anti-social and we rarely see her around the neighborhood. I mean, maybe once a week. Maybe. The other day my mom's looking out the window and she's like, "That package has been sitting in front of B's house for 2 days. If we start to smell something weird soon I'm calling the police." I was like, "What? You think she's mouldering away in the bathroom or something?" My mom was like, "I do." I wandered off with visions of Zombies and decaying corpses dancing through my head.

For the record, we still haven't seen B but the package has been mysteriously picked up.

Random #2: I myself got a package in the mail today. It was a book I ordered for a co-worker who didn't have an Amazon account. I kid you not, it took me more than 10 minutes to open the fucking thing. The vendor had wrapped it in packing tape - not the shiny, easily sliced packing tape either. Oh, no. It was the packing tape with threads in it. The ones you can't tear apart with your bare hands in a show of Hulk-like strength. Dear GAWD! I thought I was going to be found in a 100 years with that damn package clutched in my mummified hands and tear tracks carving salty trails down my withered cheeks.

Eventually I conquered the tape and managed to get the book out of the packaging. It was really touch and go for a while, though.

Random #3: I've worked out some of the backstory on how the Zombie Apocalypse started in my Zompocalypse story. I have three words for you: Cursed Glass Eye. I threatened Cole and his friend yesterday that if they didn't shape up I was going to write them into the story and they wouldn't be cool at all. Nope, not at all. They were actually excited about it so it didn't seem to be all that much of a threat.

Random #4: Blogger has been down for most of the afternoon. I'm just pleased that I wrote up those three reviews at work this morning. *fist pump*

And since I'm already talking about books...
Book #187 - Scary Mary by SA Hunter - Fun and fast, this is one of the freebies I picked up yesterday.
Book #188 - Random Acts of Senseless Kindness by Graham Parke - This short story was AWESOME! It was so out there and quirky that I laughed out loud AT WORK!
Book #189 - Dead Drop: A Lawson Vampire Bonus Story by Jon F. Merz - Okay, so this was a really short review but I really liked the writing style and thought it was a good introduction to the series.

Maybe I'll have more random fun tomorrow.
Who knows?
Later.
