This day was a long time coming this week. I have no reviews ready, no hops have been joined and all this shows how boring a person I really am.
On the reading front, I am reading Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum for a review in February. I am enjoying it but I enjoy anything with ghosts. I am listening to Jeff Ashton’s Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony. I watched this trial every single day and I was as astounded as the rest of the world with the verdict. I am enjoying the book which is narrated by Mr. Ashton. It’s a lot of the same one, same old with some back story, personal story tossed in. I am only about halfway through it. Review will come someday. LOL
How was your Friday?

About the Book:
There are few things more rewarding than having a pet. They love us unconditionally, shower us with attention, and because of them, we actually live longer. So, what can possibly be awkward about our animal BFFs? Well . . . nothing. In fact, we’re the awkward ones. We adore our pets, but let’s face it—sometimes L-O-V-E makes us go a little overboard. Like giving them middle names, throwing them elaborate birthday parties, and making them a Christmas sweater to match with the rest of the family. Truth is, what they cherish most is our companionship. And maybe that’s the reason we care about them so much—because for such simple pleasures, they allow us to be as awkward as we want.
My Two Cents:
I enjoyed this book. I am an animal lover, cats are of course my favorite pet but I love them all. I enjoy looking at pictures as well. So combine the love of animals and the interest in looking at peoples pictures and you have a win, win for me.
This is not just your everyday dog and cat photos. These are family photos that include the human part of the family as well. We have snakes, pigs, monkeys, and horses just to name a few. Some are dressed, some are posed but all are just a bit out there in my opinion but enjoyable to look at and laugh at. I wondered many times while reading this book if these people meant for these pictures to be funny or if there were serious.
I do believe that is a monkey and one that does not look too happy. Was this a Christmas card? LOL
Those pics are courtesy of Amazon and are just a tease of what you will find in the book. I wish the explanations of the pictures were a little more informative but I suppose they do speak for themselves. It is a fun book that will bring a smile to your face.

HA, I am getting my Friday post in a wee bit late but hey, it counts!
Tonight hubster and I had a lovely date night. We had dinner at this great little Middle Eastern restaurant called House of Kabob. They have the best food and their rice (which I did not eat this time, yay me) is to die for and the owners tell me very healthy. It’s a small place with just a few tables but hubster and I really enjoy it. It’s our new go to place. Fits the wallet too. AND, I was able to stay on track with Dukan by eating a Chicken Caeser Salad with healthy, NF yogurt dressing on the side. It was yummy and filled me up.
Then it was off to the movies. We saw The Devil Inside. This is about a woman whose mother murdered three people while she was having an exorcism done ON HERSELF. She is now in a mental hospital in Rome, Italy and her daughter, now 25 goes to see her for the first time to try to get answers on why and try to help her. She meets two priests who happen to do exorcisms on the side, without the approval of the church. They agree to help Isabella by evaluating her mother. The
fun horror begins!
My honest opinion? I really enjoyed it. I love these dark, evil movies and this one was made like a documentary which for me was even more interesting and held my attention. (usually I fall asleep at a movie.) Supposedly this is based on a true story, who knows. It was very, interesting. The shaky cameras were a bit much for me. For some reason that makes me sick to my stomach but it was not as bad as Paranormal Activity was. All of the actors were awesome. I liked Fr. David the best and it was hard to watch him decline as the movie went on. I found it quite believable. BUT, the ending sucked big time! I mean really sucked.
I guess I should say that this is the first movie I have seen in a theater in I don’t know how long so that could have played into my enjoyment as well. BEING OUT OF THE HOUSE! LOL
Have you seen or plan to see this movie?
