Chuckling

I needed a laugh today.

I found it.

In fact, several!

The following is an excerpt from Joshilyn Jackson's blog. I haven't read her books yet, but I saw her name on E. Lockhart's blog, and wandered over. The woman is made up entirely of funny! Her style reminds me of literaticat, as a matter of fact:

"The [book] tour is officially over, and I am sad and happy, and by the way NOT going home. My family is in FLORIDA right now anyway, frolicking on the single grain of white beach sand the hurricanes graciously left for them. They won't return until Sunday. That's okay, because I have to stay here and live forever at the Ritz Carlton in St. Louis.

"See, here at the Ritz Carlton, they went and got a bunch of peeping adorable kittens and then they EVER SO GENTLY combed their belly fur to extract only the softest wisps of angel-fluff, and then they used this magic material to make the bed. I haven't slept the way I slept here since I left home. I slept HUGELY. I slept with passionate mad abandon.

"I slept HARD and DEEP and TRUE on Tuesday night, went and did TV and stocking signings and then, in the break before the Library event, I got RIGHT back in that bed and slept even harder with even more deep truth. As soon as the event was over I went BACK to new best friend, Kitten Fluff Bedding, and passed out again. I was SO tired I could NOT manage to drag my body from its sluglike repose in the 1 million thread count arms of the perfect bed, BUT I was starving, and all I had to do was pick up the phone and then a nice lady came to bring me an ENORMOUS cheeseburger. I ate it off the bedside table, hanging my head over the floor to not DEFILE the mattress of paradise with crumbs, and then passed out again."

Ah. I feel better.

Only because she uses CAPS with WILD ABANDON!

(She is one of our store's favourite authors, actually; though I haven't met her in person, she is reported to be "a living doll")

But mostly because of the hugeness of her humor.

Love the description of the family at the beach.
It's nice to read something that makes you laugh.
