Something I'm NOT allergic to.

I have a lot of allergies.  I'm allergic to the outdoors, animals, nuts, fruits, and vegetables.

But one thing I am NOT allergic to...is penicillin.  I thought I was because I had been told once that I was.  When I saw a new allergist we re-tested myself ...and turned out I wasn't!  I found an article this morning about it...

Strange but true...and it happened to me!  If it's been years since you have seen an allergist, it's a good idea to visit and get an idea of how your allergies may have changed.

I keep my fingers crossed for my apple allergy to go away. :)

Discontinued Products

Don't you just hate it when your favorite products get discontinued?
I know I do.

In the past few years they stopped making my favorite eye shadow AND my favorite mascara.

What's a girl to do?  I wish they still made my favorite boots...because I would be snagging up extra pairs of those boots as well.  How about favorite foods?  They used to make this long ruler sized strawberry jolly rancher...that was awesome. And what about when you finally find that perfect pair of jeans...and they go ahead and stop making that style.  Grrrr!

I just went looking for my favorite mascara to see if it was still discontinued.  And it is, but guess what?  There is this teeny tiny button that you can click to "bring it back".  Sounds good to me!
I clicked it!

If you wanted to do me the nicest favor ever...you could go to the website and click on the "vote to bring it back" button.  Thanks!

New Book from Gina Damico

I think I'm way behind in reviewing books...but I have read Gina Damico's series "Croak" and I absolutely disliked the main character.  But the story grabbed me...so I kept going.
And I haven't been so satisfied by an ending in a long long time.  And the main character grew on me.

BUT...coming soon, from this same author is another book...and this one sounds...interesting.
And amusing.  Here is all the info:

Geeky, squeaky-clean Max Kilgore only has one dirty habit: digging for fossils. One day, to his horror, his shovel strikes not upon a dinosaur bone, but a pit to hell—and out of it comes a devil. Specifically, the kind of devil who eats a lot of junk food, watches a lot of reality television, plays a lot of video games, and refuses to leave Max’s basement. But evil is still evil, no matter what form it takes. And Max has to find a way to comply with the demands of the big red menace, lest he lay waste to everyone and everything Max cares about.

With the help of Lore, a former goth girl who knows a thing or two about the dark side, Max goes in search of a new abode for his unwanted guest. Finding a place where he can reside in luciferian luxury isn’t easy, but Max has strong motivation: his mother, whose terminal illness the devil promises to cure if Max gives him what he wants. Lore has her doubts about making a deal with the devil, but Max will stop at nothing to save his mom. And pretty soon, he’s doing things the good kid he once was would never dream of doing. Clearly, hanging around with a devil is a bad influence. But how can Max get rid of the guy without incurring the wrath of hell?


HELLHOLE is coming out on January 6th, 2015.  (that reminds me to get going on a new reading list...)

Here are the links to everything you need:

At the least you should sign up for her blog emails.  Because she is hilarious. And likes to share info about her books.  And about other authors.  Go for it. :)
