I'm feeling bitchy today. Not a whole lot of bitchy - just a bit, so I don't have a whole of things that are annoying me - but the ones that are, are really getting to me.
1) Books not on the shelves when they are supposed to be!!
I have about 5 or 6 books I've been checking daily for. I like, no - I need instant gratification when it comes to book buying and I'm just not getting it. Chapters "says" a couple of the books I'm looking for are at the Chapters at the other end of the city. But it's a half hour drive and with gas prices being what they are ($1.04.5 a litre! They have NEVER been this high in the city before) my need for instant gratification is warring with my cheapness - and my cheapness is winning damn it all!
2) Authors who don't update their websites!!
I've been waiting for Legacy of Stone to come out. It was supposed to be out in March but Chapters says "temporarily unable to order" so I checked out her website to see what I could see. And it hasn't been updated in forever. It's an awesome website, but the fact that it hasn't been updated since before last August kind of negates a good website. There is still a contest that will be drawn in August 2006 for pete's sake. And FWIW - I did find something on Amazon. It looks like the book isn't coming out now until December 2007! What gives?
3) ET and all those other "entertainment" shows!!
Entertainment if you care about the continuing saga of Anna Nicole Smith that is. Let it go Mary, I beg you LET IT GO.
So - as you can see there isn't much. That little bit sure is annoying me though.
Ooops - one more
Why do they have to have 13 or 14 letters in them that all look the same and are all squiggly. I don't think I got one on the first attempt tonight!
