A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

Here's How Yesterday Went

I woke up yesterday morning and went into the bathroom to do my ablutions when it clicked in my head that I might actually, no wait a minute, I'm pretty sure I don't have any appointments today. So I open the door and call to my dh:

"Can you look at the calendar? Do I have any appointments today?"

He says "I think you have one with Judy"

I say "No, I'm pretty sure that's tomorrow"

He goes and looks comes back and says "No, you're right, no appointments"

Me, thinking in my head now "Yippee! I think I'm going to have a pajama day! I'll just wash up a bit run the comb through my hair and have a happy pj day".

So there I am happily scrubbing my face when dh knocks on door "The dentist is on the phone, they've had a cancellation, can you come in today at 10 for your root canal?"

Total 360!!!

Ended up taking pjs off and wearing clothes as I spent 3 hrs (including waiting times) getting a quite painful root canal on my last bottom molar. Dr. says I have a small mouth, can I open just a bit wider, (a hundred times) now that little corner where your two lips meet is torn and sore, not to mention the insides of my mouth. Ah well, at least it's over right.

Hope your day was better!


  1. It seems as if you knew something was coming. Sorry it wasn't something fun.

  2. Good news is it is over for now. By the way, I left you a little award on my lastest post.

  3. Yikes! Root canals are NOT fun. Hope you feeling better.

  4. I have that to look forward on Monday. And I'm lucky enough to have a small mouth too. Great fun.

    At least yours is over now. I hope you have a quick recovery.

  5. Yikes, that sounds painful. Maybe you should cancel some appointments for a mandatory PJ day.
