Not anything super exciting to report today, except to inform everyone that I have embarked on a new adventure...in reading. How gay did that sound????!!???? Pretty gay! Since I recently followed my own RRDJ in purchasing and beginning Underworld by Graham Hancock I have come to the conclusion that all the painting I have been doing has killed a lot of my brain cells--the book makes my brain hurt. As I now have the intelligence of a 12-15 year old, I have decided to embark on a literary adventure targeted to that age group. What I REALLY want is to read the next Harry Potter but seeing as how that is not possible I thought "hey, maybe there is something else out there like it". And there just might be. Artemis Fowl is billed as a 12 year old criminal mastermind, rich and genius. Judging by the large type and unthickness of the book itself, I should be done it a week at the most. I know, I know, I hear you all laughing, but it has something called a LEPrecon Unit and faeries. I can't resist them! Shut up!
And while we are on the subject of books, I am reminded of the fact that I have not come up with a RRDJ for some time. And like my most recent Honku, this newest RR was inspired by someone else. My friend Dee sent me an e-mail with a Deep Thought by Jack Handey. Freaking hilarious! This is the one she sent: If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute
thing to tell him is
"God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying,
another cute thing to
tell him is "Probably because of something you did." It reminded me that I used to have a bunch of the books and that I practically peed my pants every time I read them. My friend Wee can attest to that. So is my RRDJ Jack Handey's Deep Thoughts???? Um...yes, sort of. Actually, I am really going for humour books in general.
I wonder whatever happened to my Letters from a Nut by Ted L. Nancy. Not heard of Ted L. Nancy? Shame on you. He is probably the craziest person on the face of the earth... crazy in the good sense, not like Dubbya or Hitler.
Dear MS. Ramey:
Thank you very much for answering my letter concerning the haunted sponge I bought from a Ralphs store. Ralphs has been and always will be the only store I shop in for my food and sponge needs.
In your letter to me you said that I would be hearing from the supplier of this songe. I have not heard from them. And this sponge is bad.
Can someone from Ralphs come and get this sponge from me? This sponge is out to get me. I am afraid.
After I got your letter I went down to my basement and locked that sponge in a steel box and put a chain around that box. Then I wrapped that box in tape and put a shackle around that. Then I boarded up the basement door with over 1000 nails. Then I put a manacle on that door. Then I went upstairs to my room to get a good nights sleep.
At about 3 o'clock in the morning I woke up and looked down. That sponge was right by my bed. I am scared. Please help me.
Also, do you sell Brillo at your store?
When will I hear from the supplier? I need to know. Thank you for your reply.
Ted L. Nancy
Really, really funny stuff. I'll have to see if I can find the books and/or pick up the new ones. Anyway, the RRDJ is Humour books. We can all stand to laugh a little more! I think so anyway.
