I wanna put you in a song....

Rangers VS Yankees Game 4 of the ALCS was last night. Rangers won 10-3. Which puts them up 3-1 over those Yankees. One more win for my Rangers and they're going to the World Series. How fucking exciting is that?! Well, unless you're a Rangers fan, I suppose it's not incredibly spectacular. For me (and other Rangers fans) it's FUCKING GRAND. :D

I posted this picture on my Tumblr last night:

Broken camera glass makes for some really badass shots.

I worked during the game so I didn't get to see much of it. I saw bits and pieces up until the last 30 minutes of the game when I finally got to focus on it. Damn work, getting in the way of my ALCS enjoyment. :p

Game 5 is at 2 PM. If the Rangers win, they'll knock out the Yankees and be in the World Series. The game will be played in NY. Winning it at home in Texas would be cooler but as long as they win, I'll be happy. It would be pretty sweet to knock NY out in NY. Of course, there's still a chance that the Yankees will make a come back. Go Rangers! :D

I got home from work last night around 11 PM. I got a shower and put in some Boy Meets World. I got Season 1 & 2 for $10 from Best Buy. The Boyfriend is working the 5 pm to 2 am shift at his job for the next couple months so I was looking for something to keep amused that didn't take much thought or effort. I always need to chill a couple hours after work to decompress. Even if I'm tired as hell, I still can't go to bed right away. It's funny watching shows I loved as a kid now that I'm an adult. I pick up on all the slight innuendos and adult humor subtly hidden in the dialog of the show. :D

I would like some book recommendations. I don't like romance or mystery books. I prefer sci-fi, fantasy, horror, sports, fiction, non-fiction, biographies, true crime and pretty much anything that isn't too fluffy. So, if you're reading a good book right now or have a favorite you love to rave about; feel free to pass along the title and author's name this way. :D

I love cupcakes, muffins, plaid, Crunch Berries, Edgar Allen Poe poetry, pomegranate lemonade, vanilla scented candles, clear lip gloss, history, knee high socks, How To Train Your Dragon, Orbit BubbleMint gum, crunchy peanut butter, penguins, Tumblr and flip flops. Among other things. ;)

If you haven't already, make sure you check out the fundraiser post here. Please and thank you! It only takes a few dollars to make a difference and help someone out. :)

Happy Wednesday!

anything by Margaret Atwood is a great read

and on a personal nerd note: Cap'n Crunch has brought back the retro packaging. which means Crunch Berry Monster!

Jim Butcher will always be at the top of my reading recommendation list for anyone that likes fantasy. He's more urban fantasy with his Dresden series but full-on fantasy with his Codex Alera series. Both are fantastic. I've never been one to reread anything but I've read his books over and over. Loves it!

You can read the first few chapters of his books at

I just finished reading Peter Carey's 'True History of The Kelly Gang'. It's about Ned Kelly and I found it really interesting as well as moving in some parts. Definitely recommended by me (and the Booker Prize judges of 2001!)

looks like the rangers will meet their first WS, but they don't have a chance against my giants! ;)

did you know that edgar allan poe is my father? my spirit father of all things dark and depressing...

Two of my favorite authors currently (both sci-fi) are John Scalzi and David Weber.

For Scalzi I'd probably start with Old Man's War.

Weber has a couple different series. He does both fantasy and sci-fi.

I have to agree with Sarah. I love Jim Butcher, his Dresden Files books are excellent, and the Codex Alera series are basically his homage to JRR Tolkien.

If you're into that kind of reading, maybe getting into the Eye of the World series by Robert Jordan would be to your liking as well. Unfortunately, Mr. Jordan died before completing the series, but Brandon Sanderson was given all of the notes, and has started finishing up the series, which should be done by the end of next year. If you want, check out and get the skinny on the books. I'm sure you'll see that it won't be a waste of time or energy.
