Winners of the Unspent Time Launch Event


"I'm very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish
 their sentences." Graham Parke, Unspent Time
I'd originally planned to have a monkey draw two random numbers out of a hat
 (then use the inverse hexadecimal value - because you cannot trust monkeys, 
not at the prices I'm willing to pay) but apparently there are laws against 
monkey labor. There are permits involved. It's a whole thing. So instead I 
asked a friend to think of two random numbers while dressed in a monkey suit, 
without telling him what the numbers were for. This seemed sufficiently random
 to me, although it later occurred to me how worrying it was that my friend 
would actually do this without ever asking why. There might be a thinly veiled 
cry for help in there somewhere...




 




Kindle Fire Winner: Cecilia Huddleston Kindle Touch Winner: Kathy Habel
A big thank you to all the bloggers and readers who supported the Unspent Time 
launch event (especially those who bought multiple versions of the weird little 
novels that wrecked a thousand reasonably useful minds.)




Anyway, here's the results, thank you all for joining in, winners will be 
contacted and forced to accept prizes, let me know if you ever come across 
bits in the novels you like, stay healthy and sane,

“We played for about half an hour before I realized we were actually playing 
two different games. What I’d thought of as ludo was actually a game called gin 
rummy, and what Warren was playing seemed to be a mixture of craps and table 
tennis. Once we started playing by one consistent set of rules, though, the fun 
was really over.”  Graham Parke, No Hope for Gomez!

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
