Sitting Idly By

Where the titles for some of these post come from is anyone's guess.

Turns out I was in an eating frenzy because my body had decided it was time to hibernate.

I kid you not. I went to bed at I guess 10am at the latest. Bob tried to wake me at 6pm and got my standard answer of 'one more hour?'. I remember him asking me questions 'are we going out when you get up? You needed eggs but I'm exhausted and just wanna get in my jammies. But you want eggs so I should stay dressed -'

I told him to forget the friggin' eggs and get in his jammies. He did and I went right back to sleep. I woke up when he climbed into bed. I woke up at midnight but then thought that since it was Saturday I should try to sleep longer so I would be up during the day with Bob.

2:30am I climbed out of bed.

Figuring it was Saturday I was going to watch Battlestar Galactica and do some computer stuff but something kept bothering me.

I feed the cats, do some internet and prepare to watch TV.

Wait! I didn't see LOST this week!

OMG it's only Wednesday!!

Actually it was Thursday early AM. I can't believe I couldn't remember the friggin day. I must need more protein in my diet or something.

So that's like 16 hours right? Yeah. Bad Cindy.

Bob took me out to breakfast though because I once again had to eat. Bob still had to go to work though so I'm on my own during the day. Bad things happen when I'm up during the day and Bob's not around.

I spend money.

What's saving me is my car battery is dead and the idea of getting the car booster out and boosting the car seems like too much energy.

Yeah, I know. I can't believe my body has allowed me the energy to keep breathing.

I mean, there's lazy and then there's LAZY.

Bob plans to work from home this afternoon so really I can just wait for his car if I want to go out and get some groceries. I'm considering buying a bag of every variety of cookie known to mankind.

Okay, I won't. But it's tempting.

Also, I'm currently reading Kiss of a Demon King by Kresley Cole and yes, I'm reading the book out of order of the series. I have come to the part where we (I) meet the hero and uh, yeah.

The guy has horns.

I'm not talking little horns.

They are described as coming out his temples and then curving around his skull (I'm thinking just above his ears so it would look like a ring around his head) and I can't say I've ever read a romance where a H/H is in a form other than human.

Yes, I've read vamps and weres and even H/H with wings (those would be downy soft though) and all that but vamps are humanoid and weres have a human side so, yeah. They look human.

I keep picturing the heroine hanging off this guys horns when they get busy.

I'll let you know if I can get past it. I was really enjoying the heroine's side of things but wow, a guy with horns.

I may have to stop eating so I don't break this limb I'm hanging off of!

LOL about your comment about horns! I just forgot about them... but if I'm not wrong, they can make them disappear or make them invisible no? Or am I confusing Rydstrom with Simi from the Dark Hunter series? :P I really like the heroine in this book - which I didn't really expect.

and LOL, well that's good. You have your explanation about why you were so hungry :) Makes you feel better no? :P

LOL I think the Rystrom's horns sort of blend with his hair, mostly. But they straighten and point forward when he's angry (rage demon, after all) and maybe when he's in romantic mood? I don't remember.

I'm on the lookout for Girl Scout cookies - nobody in my office was selling them this year. *sob*

Nath - I have no clue because I pretty much put the book down when the horns were described. And finding out why I was hungry - priceless. Now I just need to stop eating bad stuff. Lettuce is icky though :(

C2 - okay, you're not helping. The horns move!? I bought Peak Freens Chocolate Shortcake cookies - never had them but hey, I need something different and maybe they'll work.

Okay, I'm thinking I won't be reading any Kresley Cole books. I just don't think I could get past the horns. And I was actually pretty interested, as I know her books got a lot of votes in the poll.
