I was all set to tell you all there had been no new disasters or incidents this past week, but then, Friday night, I tweeted a picture of me chillin’ with my cat homie and said I’m gonna miss him when I move… and then like a minute later I think he got startled and attacked my arm -_- And my arm was in prime attacking position since I was rubbing his tummy. Thankfully none of the marks were deep enough to actually draw blood, and they all seem to be healing fine, but it was still worrisome to me at first because my chronic illness makes me more susceptible to infections. Especially since I Googled about infection from cat bites/scratches and every site was like, “INFECTION! DEATH! PATHOGENS! YOU’RE GONNA DIE!” Oh, and of course it would be the one time my body decided to have some sort of reaction to tea tree oil (which I use as disinfectant for skin stuff), despite the fact that I’ve used it a million times before, but the redness went away in a couple hours. So… all crises averted, hopefully.
I’m getting better at Twitter, guys! Not in the sense that my tweets are going viral or anything, just that I’m actually interacting with people in the bookish community more. Commenting on blogs can lead to kind of stilted conversation, just one comment then a reply, but Twitter, it turns out, is great for actually conversing. Even though the whole 140 characters thing is the bane of my existence and I end up having to spread out my replies over like three tweets lol. Anyway, if you’re not following me there, you should, and I’ll follow you back because I like following other bloggers over there :-)
Some not-so-good news though is that my Amazon lists went back to not filtering/sorting with all the options and doing the infinite scroll. I contacted support again, and apparently it’s something new with a site update, but they’ve had feedback about it from other customers too and are working on it… so I don’t know if that means people are complaining and they’re going to change it back for everyone? I also don’t understand why it hasn’t changed for everyone since all of you said your lists were still working normally.
Books I Received for Review:
Nothing! Still waiting to find out if I’m going to get a book I requested on NG though!
Books I Finished:
And the reading slump continues, I guess, in the sense that I just haven’t been wanting to read much period, regardless of the book. But Triad Soul was good at least! Alonso Munich, not so much.
Song of the Week:
I haven’t found new music lately :-/
Laugh of the Week:
Instead of something from the internet, I have a special exclusive treat for you all this week—a comic I drew when I was in elementary school called “Carpet Tales”!
Amazing, right? One of my friends once pointed out that the carpet mutilated himself by cutting his fringes off. I like to think they grow back like hair in the Carpet Tales universe. Not that a hair bow is that much better… but it’s significantly better than a finger bow! #ItsAllRelative
In Case You Missed It:
– I did the This or That Tag and talked about my bookish preferences (reading in bed ftw!).
– I reviewed Real Vampires Take No Prisoners by Amy Fecteau, a great end to a funny and intense M/M vampire series with characters I’m sad to say bye to. – I’m kinda bummed that hardly anyone read or commented on this one since I really liked the book, so you should go check it out if you haven’t :-)
– I reviewed Gone by the Board by August Li, a quick, light M/M paranormal romance with a unique creature.
– I reviewed Lux and Lies by Meg Collett, a YA dystopian with reality TV drama and complex characters.
