Friday Favorites, Fantasy Art & A Funny...

It's Friday... again! Wow. I'm counting down on my paper route. 5 DAYS LEFT!! I can't freakin' wait. I've had nothing but car trouble the past month or so and I've spent more than I have made, I swear. Things are already tight...

But enough about that, let's get on with things, shall we?

Favorite Books/Authors:

Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown. I love these books. I love how Rita Mae makes the animals talk. What is my fascination with talking animals? I have no clue. But I talk to my own animals like they can understand me and I swear they are more intelligent for it. I have to have someone to talk to, sheesh!
These books feature a character named Harry or Mary Minor Haristeen. Harry's pets, Mrs. Murphy, Pewter and Tucker all help her solve the mysteries, even if Harry can't understand them completely. All her pets keep a sharp eye on their mom. And there is usually a little note from Sneaky Pie at the end of each book. I'd have to say that Rita Mae is right up there for me along with J. A. Jance and the author of the 'Cat Who' books, Lillian Jackson Braun.

Favorite Movies:

For movies this week, I'm choosing 'The Boondock Saints'. Both movies! I love those movies and I can't get enough of them. I even have a t-shirt, which is unusual for me. I like wearing t-shirts, but I am not a big fan of concert t's or one promoting movies. I don't know why, I really don't. But I do have one from the Boondock Saints. My fave scene... well. Let me just quote it, "Is it dead?!" If you know the movie, you know what I'm talking about.

Favorite Music:

Violent Femmes. That's another favorite I have to find music for all over again. I used to have so many CD's and with my iPod, well, I just have to find more music. I'm already looking for a larger capacity iPod because the one I have is only 8 gigs. I don't have enough ROOM!!! Gah. As soon as I get a new one, Violent Femmes will be all over it!

Fantasy Art:

And the funny! Seriously, this is how I feel over on Facebook these days:

 That's it, folks! So what are your plans for the weekend?

Wicked cool artwork!
Glad the paper route is ending soon. I get up early enough in the morning and couldn't imagine getting up even earlier.

Your FB funny just captured me TOO well. Between "I hate this guy" or "I hate that guy", my little "Hey, it's Fun Friday!" just doesn't cut the mustard lol!!

Ha! Love the dog. And I'm also a serious Violent Femmes fan. I really need to read the Sneaky Pie books. Heck, it's even in one of my genres.

I figured the artwork was appropriate for the time of year. And my first morning sleeping in... I'm gonna wake up and dance. :D

I have so much political bashing comments in my FB newsfeed that I have just resorted to playing games and ignoring most of it, Angela.

Hart! Yes, you must read those books, they're great. :D
