It is quite good, in my opinion. She works really hard. Glad things are starting to pay off for her.  Well, a little anyway. She doubts she'll see any money from this book other than what they paid upfront. She's also not used to the pressures of being an author and having people say negative things online (the one review available says it 'doesn't break any new ground'). Until now she has only been an illustrator professionally. But hopefully the book does well and she gets to keep making more of her own.

Variety, do you think this would be appropriate for a 3 year old? If so, I'd be happy to buy a copy.

Oh absolutely. There are no words, just cute pictures. Let me know what you and the 3 year old think if you end up buying one.

I got back into Rifftrax after an absence of a few years.  When I went to catch up, there was a backlog of about 50 feature length VOD, 12 MP3 only trax, and I think 48 shorts.  Needless to say, that comes to a hefty price.  Well I bought them all right at the nexus of 2 different sales.  10% off with a discount code from the Doctor Who live show, and 15% off from a back to school sale.  I didn't think both discount codes would overlap, but they did.  A few other discounts crept in too, and by the end I saved $147 off a $584 order.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

A cricket got inside, and started that loud, horrible chirping.  That happens a lot this time of year when the temperatures start to drop.

Normally that would be a source of irritation, but the second that thing started chirping, my cats were all over it like white on rice.  They have this ability to track a moving object that is superior to my own (they just have better focus I guess).  They also have faster reflexes and their size lets them get into smaller spaces.

Last night, minutes after the first chip, my kitten had flushed the cricket out into the open.  That thing could not move an inch without my cat chomping and pawing it.  Shikaree was taking too long to kill though, and I was worried about the cricket getting under the couch or the fridge where even the kitties couldn't get it.  But while it was out in the open, Shikaree was able to keep it cornered long enough for me to get my shoes on and stomp it.

Such good kitties!  They are getting a present tonight!
