I probably could have finished a 7th book this month, but it just didn't happen lol..darn :P

At the Mountains of Madness was DUMB..it sounded exciting since it took place in Antarctica, but it was dumb and boring lol. here's a review by someone on goodreads that pretty much sums it up and had me trying not to burst out laughing at work LOL )

The author of Moonwalker was hilarious..here are some passages that had me LOLing:

However, after a serious debate with myself, I bit the bullet--it was tastier than the power bar--and started the ascent to the summit of An Socach (I also learned Scotland has CRAZY names for their mountains, like Coire Mhic Fhearchair..how would you even say that??)

With mixed company, I could not lounge around with just a thin piece of Lycra keeping my carrot and two onions in check. The snugness of the shorts meant I was acutely aware that I was showing more than the gold medallion boys with their Speedos on any Mediterranean beach

There are many methods of removing ticks--tweezers, talcum powder, playing anything by James Blunt--but the one not now recommended is the old method of burning them off.
"Aye, hold a lit cigarette to their rear and they'll soon let go."
Hold a flame to the backside of 99.99999 per cent of any creatures on this planet and they will release their grip, screaming in agony. The exceptions, of course, being some members of the House of Lords, who would pay extra for this service

On several occasions I believed I could see someone ahead of me. That person invariably turned out to be a tree. After a few similar mistakes I started to relax and went with the flow. It was an almost dream-like state, an out-of-body experience and the results were some interesting conversations.
"Hi, there. Oh, you're a tree. Amazing. And how long have you been a tree?"
