Just some things to point out to you:
--What do you with your fat clothes when you're losing weight? Mel of The Amazing Shrinking Mom has some thoughts.
--Good news for fans of author BJ Hoff: Harvest House is re-releasing two of her novels that have been out of print, Cloth of Heaven and Ashes and Lace. I really like both books. No one writes about Irish Americans better than BJ!
--Stop the presses! Siegfried and Roy have outed themselves. (Hat tip to Good Brownie.)
--I just finished Allison Botke's new novel, One Little Secret, and thoroughly enjoyed it...what a fun read! I look forward to interviewing Allison later this week, and being part of her blog tour.
--Movies that contain nasty grossness leave me cold--I have a hard time getting past the nastiness to enjoy the humor. So I just avoid that kind of movie. I have this firm belief that humor doesn't have to be dirty to be hilarious.
But apparently I'm in the minority--Judd Apatow is making a killing off of movies like "Superbad" and "Knocked Up." My friend Joel Griffith of The Seventh Sola has some succinct comments on this issue. He quotes Apatow:
I'm just trying to make movies about how people really are . . . Most of my life is R-rated. I'm just glad it's working for people so I can keep making filthy little films.
More from Joel here.
--The Top 15 Great Science Fiction Books (not being a big sci-fi fan, I will admit that I haven't read any of them! Have you?) Hat tip to Evangelical Outpost.
