But was there enough gore left-over to chum the Enchanted Lake?

"... then the handsome Prince married Cinderella, and, after the wedding, threw her step-sisters, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Kendall, into a pool filled with starving sharks, where they screamed for mercy as they were devoured in great, gory mouthfuls ... even the parts made of plastic. THE END. Oh, Mother, you always know how to pick the most satisfying bedtime stories. I'll sleep like an angel after this one!"

“… then the handsome Prince married Cinderella, and, after the wedding, threw her stepmother, Kris, and her stepsisters, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Kendall, into a pool filled with starving sharks, where they screamed for mercy as they were devoured by dagger-like teeth in great, dismembering mouthfuls. And the sharks gobbled them all UP … even the parts made of plastic. THE END. Oh, Mother, you always know how to pick the most satisfying bedtime stories. I just know I’ll sleep like an angel after this one!”

Book One = The magical cornerstone – a lavishly illustrated epic narrative poem … a genuine “spell” for the young and young-at-heart to treasure for a lifetime, telling the story of sorcerer Rowan Blaize’s battle to regain his magic powers. (Think Beowulf-meets-Dr.Seuss or an epic story-in-verse of a scope similar to Tolkien’s soon-to-be-released The Fall of Arthur, only contemporary.)

Book Two = The rip-roaring novel that continues the adventures of Rowan Blaize and introduces the three hilarious witches of the Ancient City, along with its dysfunctional werewolves, wraiths, ghosts, vampires, dryads, banshees and a beauty pageant brat that just might destroy the world.

Book Three = The next novel that finds Rowan trapped by a spell in another world, caught between a faery-squashing sorceress who’ll stop at nothing to conquer the kingdom … and a feisty teenage prince who’s determined to get it back.

Cindy finds NO correlation between her iPad and increased stupidity …

"I read the other day in the Wall Street Journal that human beings are becoming more stupid from using computers so much in daily life."

“I just read in the Wall Street Journal that human beings are becoming more stupid due to overreliance on computers.”

"I read the other day in the Wall Street Journal that human beings are becoming more stupid from using computers so much in daily life."

“That’s a buncha crap, though, ‘cuz yesterday I took one of those online tests, and my I.Q. was twenty-one degrees warmer than it was last month. And I’m talking Fahrenheit, not Celsius.

Because a Mind is a Terrible Thing to Warp … #Nostalgia

"Enjoy these wholesome moments now, Cindy. Because one day some doctor is going to hook electrodes to your skull and try to zap the memory of forcibly imposed religious guilt, repressed resentment of patriarchal subjugation, and ridiculous matching outfits right out of your precious brain ."

“Mommy’s done her best to craft this little illusion for you, Cindy, so do us a favor and try to live in the damn moment, okay? Trust me: one day some smug psychiatrist is going to erase every memory of imposed religious guilt, patriarchal resentment, and asinine matching outfits right out of your precious skull.”

"Enjoy these wholesome moments now, Cindy. Because one day some doctor is going to hook electrodes to your skull and try to zap the memory of forcibly imposed religious guilt, repressed resentment of patriarchal subjugation, and ridiculous matching outfits right out of your precious brain ."

“That sounds serious, Mommy! Will I still be cheerful enough to enjoy an ice-cold Coca Cola in the wonderful sunshine?”

"Enjoy these wholesome moments now, Cindy. Because one day some doctor is going to hook electrodes to your skull and try to zap the memory of forcibly imposed religious guilt, repressed resentment of patriarchal subjugation, and ridiculous matching outfits right out of your precious brain ."

“Honey, after another ten years with me –and the ensuing shock-treatments required to undo my handiwork– you’ll be lucky if you remember how to use a straw. Drink-up.”

Reality TV is the Butt-Thermometer: American Society is the Fevered Orifice…

"I thought American culture could not sink any lower, Barbra, and then I learn that MTV is about to produce a reality show centered upon young women competing to lose their virginity. So degrading! What's next in this sick society, I ask you--Cannibals Wars of LA County?"

“You know, I thought our culture could sink no lower, Barbra, and then I learned from those demure and highly intellectual ladies on The View that MTV is producing a reality show about young women competing to lose their virginity. Can you believe it? Well, it’s time for my family to get rid of the television set. I mean, what’s next in this sick society–Cannibal Cook-Offs of Calaveras County?”

conclusion gossip

"Come to think of it, Barbra, if a cannibal reality series featured that tubby schmuck from Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives roasting one or two Kardashians over a BBQ-pit, I'd bankroll the Emmy campaign myself."
