You know how everyday I share the weirdest thing Amazon recommended to me on twitter? Well yesterday it was a choose-your-own-adventure book called YOU ARE A KITTEN! where you’re a kitten named Holden Catfield who grows so large you crush the earth. But then Amazon was like, “Hang on…if you liked YOU ARE A KITTEN! then you’ll love OCEAN OF LARD, a choose-your-own-mindfuck book that could not possibly be safe for work. And then Amazon was like, “BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE” because then it told me I should “look inside The Haunted Vagina” and that seemed like dubious advice but I totally did it because how often do you get that sort of an offer? Answer: Three times so far.
But then I totally bought it because HOW COULD I NOT and now Amazon is like, “I TOLD YOU SO. Hey, how about these?”
And that’s why I’m totally started a book club because then these books will be a business expense and I can put it on my business card and Victor won’t wake up and yell, “WHY IS THERE A HAUNTED VAGINA ON THE CREDIT CARD? I’m cutting off your computer access after 10 pm.”
First book of the Bloggess Book Club: The Haunted Vagina.
The first rule of Bloggess Book Club is that there are no rules because I like chaos. Come back here when you’ve read the book and we’ll discuss it in the comments. Or just pretend you’ve read the book and drink a lot, which is how the best book clubs go. I think. I’ve never actually been invited to be in one before. Feel free to add your own rules as you go.
And on an entirely different subject this isn’t Sunday but I’m doing a Sunday wrap-up because I don’t know how calendars work. So pretend it’s Sunday. Take your pants off. The usual.
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- Bookclub bags to hide your shit. (But not your literal shit. That’s how you get cholera. But it will hide your haunted vagina.)
- 9 Books To Read If You Have Depression & Just Need A Little Help Making It Though The Day
- I relate to this lady so much. And by “this lady” I mean the mom bringing parrot happiness into the world. That’s probably pretty obvious.
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by StoryWorth. “This year, give Mom a StoryWorth Book to preserve her stories. Each week, we’ll email her a question about her life – asking her to recount her favorite memory of her grandparents, the best advice she ever got, etc. All she has to do is reply with a story, which is forwarded to you and any other family members you invite. At the end of the year, her stories are bound in a beautiful keepsake book your family will cherish!” I actually did this for my dad last year and it’s been fantastic to read all of his stories that might have been lost otherwise. I highly recommend it and its super on sale now.
