More Facts on Psychofacts :)

MOST. MORONIC. “FACT”. EVER. UNFOLLOWING IMMEDIATELY.  You do know that it’s the sperm’s dna that determines the sex of the fetus, right?

ROFLMAO!!  I’m wondering how the body knows, how the DNA knows, how all the little things that go into making a baby know that the woman is “attractive”??? ROFL!!!  Such a bullshit “fact.” 

Well, obviously we are being judged on our attractiveness at a molecular/ genetic/ atomic level!  D’uh!!  Mother Nature/ The Universe thinks your atoms be U-G-L-Y: sons for you!!!   ;-)  

But the good news is that you only have to send your atoms to the gym, not your whole body.

When my friend tells me men think I’m too independent

and I’m like…

Even though I nicely and politely rejected his romantic overtures, he felt that his bruised ego required retribution and told me that I was “un-date-able”, with one of the causes of this previously unknown social affliction of mine being “you’re fiercely independent”.

The Borough Press is encouraging everyone to tweet a #BookADay all throughout June to celebrate Independent Booksellers Week, which begins 28th June. I’ll also be posting mine on Tumblr!

Intriguing…

Oooh…here we go:

1st - Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren - Then, now, always, and forever.

2nd - You’ll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again by Julia Phillips  - free, found book released by a Bookcrosser.

3rd - One with a blue cover:  Midwives by Chris Bohjalian

4th - Least favorite book by favorite author:  Cancer Ward by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

5th - Doesn’t belong to me:  Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (and I’ve never read it)

6th - The one I always give as a gift - There are so many and it depends on the recipient, but I’ve given the following on more than one occasion:  The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein,  Ballad of the Whiskey Robber: A True Story of Bank Heists, Ice Hockey, Transylvanian Pelt Smuggling, Moonlighting Detectives, and Broken Hearts by Julian Rubinstein, The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, and anything in which my loved ones have shown an interest.

7th - Forgot I own it:  About 1/5 of my library.

8th - Have more than one copy:  Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe (one is 90+ years old and the other is a beautiful new edition)

9th - Film or tv tie-in:  Blindness by Jose Saramago  (The ONLY book I own that has a movie tie-in cover.  I refuse to buy books with movie/ tv tie-in covers.)

10th - Reminds me of someone I love:  Too many to name.  But I have a bunch of artist biographies in Russian that remind me of my mother.

11th - Secondhand bookshop gem:  The Stranger by Albert Camus.

12th - I pretend to have read it:  No. I don’t do that.  I might be a book snob but I’m one that happily admits my ignorance of (or disinterest in) many books.

13th - Makes me laugh:  How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

14th - An old favorite:  The Red and the Black by Stendhal (I read it when I was 13 or 14 and found it fascinating, couldn’t put it down.)

15th - Favorite Fictional Father (FFF):  Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (isn’t he most people’s favorite fictional father??!!).

FDA Puts An End To American Artisanal Cheese

This is such bull.  How much did Kraft and their ilk pay to grab a bigger market share for their plastic cheese?  Doesn’t the FDA have enough to deal with the industrial food companies that have poisoned and killed more of us than all the people put together in the last 2000 years of cheese making??  I would like everybody to know that every time I’m in Europe you can all place orders for real, beautifully aged cheeses.  

15 Movie Tie-In Book Covers That Make Us Sad

Can you believe the Wuthering Heights - Twilight tie-in!!???!!!!   NO, NO, NO, NO!!

Movie/ TV tie-in editions are THE worst (although, a book going out of print or never being available to readers could be considered THE worst…so…).  I go out of my way never to buy them.  The Anna Karenina one that came out last year pissed me off.  So did the Les Mis one.  I know I’m not the only one.
