    Sue Townsend Passed Away

    This is a story from last week, but I hadn’t read up on this amazing author and didn’t realise that she was both a young adult author and such an incredible person. Sue Townsend was the author of the poplar Adrian Mole YA books which were adapted  for TV in the UK in 2001.

  • Cuddlebuggery Swearing Style Guide tumblr_mp1hiviMLE1rxp0b7o1_500

    Meg posted last week about considering the words we use. It’s a post that Steph, Meg and I feel strongly about. That’s not to say people should or must listen to us, merely that we’ve made a personal choice about the vocabulary we use on this blog. And we also feel strongly that there should still be a lot of swear words on the blog, because swearing is an art form. If you don’t like swearing then you should probably back out of this post right now, because I’m about to style guide the hell out of swearing for all those who want help in steering away from ableist, sexist or homophobic slurs.  You’d be surprised how many you’re unconsciously using.

    Before I start — an ode to swearing. My mother has spent many years teaching me to be the kind of gentle, kind, forgiving, decorous soul that she is.

Parasite by Mira Grant

I was incredibly nervous about reading Parasite. Not because it was a supremely creepy subject matter (anything having to do with the inner workings of the human body makes my palms sweat) but because I love Mira Grant’s previous work so, so very much, if this book was anything short of amazing I was going to go cry myself to sleep in a gallon of ice cream.

I’m pleased to report that while not as unbelievably fantastic as Feed, (take this with a grain of salt, if we’ve ever talked at all you may have noticed that I am a huge, unapologetic Newsflesh trilogy fangirl and I strongly recommend starting there if you want to get an idea of the damage Mira Grant can do with your nervous system) Parasite was an intense, horrifying look at where society’s quest to tinker with everything we can get our hands on could lead.

Ferrero Rocher

Yeah, so, I hope I got this right, cause I actually can’t find my instruction email telling me what to do.  Clearly I am the best blogging friend ever.

Kara and Lyn’s faces right now.

So this is a great Halloween event that Kara and Lyn organized.  I’m to tell you my favourite candy (I think).  Then you precious, amazing people, get a chance to win stuff over on Kara and Lyn’s blog.  Spooky books and all.  I don’t know.  I’m Australian.  We aren’t historically very good at Halloween but I’m enthusiastic to try!

But I think just telling you my favourite candy is too easy!  So I’m going to give you a rhyme and in order to figure out my favourite candy, you need to deduce it from my highly sophisticated and subtle clues.  Ready?  Here we go:

I’m round with hazelnuts sprinkled over my chocolate, a lot like a Ferrero Rocher,

My name means Ferrero Rock.

Cinnamon and Gunpowder

I described this book to my mother.  “It’s about a chef who gets kidnapped by pirates.  He has to cook a gourmet meal for the pirate captain once a week.  And this pirate captain, mom, she is AWESOME!”

My mom smiled knowingly, “Oh.  And then they start getting it on like rabbits!”

I faltered for a moment, stalling while trying to explain.  “No!  It’s not a romance-romance.  I mean, they do develop a relationship but it’s…not a focus in the novel.”

My mom seemed to understand, giving a confident nod.  “So how does a teenager become a pirate captain?”

My brain stalled again.  “No, um, the chef and Mabbot are middle-aged.”

This time, it was my mother was the confused one.  “What are you doing reading this?”

She has a point.  This isn’t my usual blog-reading fair.  Not romance and no teens?  Yet as soon as I saw this book on the publishing line up, I couldn’t resist getting it and I’m so glad I did.

The Best Library EVER

Sometimes, when I can’t sleep at night, I lie awake and fantasize about the best library in the world.  (Okay, so maybe I’m thinking about all the naughty things I’d like to do to Lee Min Ho, but I think about libraries, too.  Not at the same time or anything.  That would be weird.  Or maybe awesome.  Lee Min Ho and a room full of my favorite books… As Joey from Friends famously said, “Put your hands together!”)

Anyway, as I was saying, when I think about the most awesome libraries, I think of more books, more parking (our library’s parking lot is insanely small) and more hours.
