--- AVR News Update ---
Hello and Happy Sunday!

On the Home Front: Kids went back to school Tuesday. Anna starts Spring semester tomorrow and everyone else has exams starting Weds. That means early release for the 13, 14, 15, 19 & 20 with no school on the 18, 21 & 22. January is quite the short month and I'm glad of it. Jessica's last day of school is the 14th. For all intents and purposes she will graduate from high school, but has opted to walk with her class in June. Journey complete! We're quite proud of her for sticking it out.

Touching Nature: It got nipples-putting-eyes-out cold for a bit there and then this weekend has been a little warmer, but still chilly as well as grey, dreary and drizzly. Other than that, I got nothin' to add.

Book News: Michelle over at Limabean Designs has been working her tushie off creating my amazing meme graphics and I so can't wait to reveal them to you all.

Don't Touch That Dial!: Supernatural rewatch marathon resumes with the shitty weather. 11 episodes means we finished Season 3 and are into Season 4. Castiel is in Da House! Woot!

At the Flicks: Nope.

Cyberspace Playground: Omfg. I fell down a rabbit hole of Supernatural Crack! videos earlier this week. Don't do that unless you have, like, all day to watch them. There are a megafuckton of them out there! lol
Now, I really must plug The Passion of the Nerd because he gives the best recaps and insight into Buffy the Vampire Slayer (he says he'll add Angel recaps when he gets to the end of Buffy Season 3). And, omg, his voice is awesome! *swoons* His channel is a must for all Buffy fans.


That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

Free at time of drafting. Glove before love.


  1. Had to laugh at the nipple-putting-your-eye-out cold comment! Hilarious!!!

    And I'm off to check out the Passion of the Nerd as I'm a huge Buffy fan!

  2. You're binging too. :) I've been trying to catch up on stuff since a lot of shows are coming back on, and I'm behind on all of them. sigh. Your weather's been crappy too? Actually ours hasn't been too bad, but it's coming- major snow overnight. Joy.

    Have a good week. :)

  3. I am loving all the updates to your blog. Ooo my nipples freeze and roll right Now I have to go read Monday's post because I just cannot help myself. Touching nature is bad..covers, coffee and books are good!

  4. I came here from the Sunday Post, then got distracted looking at monster porn and other posts lol.

    I binge-watched Supernatural seasons 1-9, I believe, in like September, but I still haven't gotten caught up yet.

    Also, that bat picture always cracks me up :-P

  5. It is currently that cold right now here in Missouri...brrrrr. If I can make it through today it's suppose to get warmer as the week goes on..but gaaah it's freezing. :)

  6. My husband and I need to start binging things we never spend anytime together and its a good and bad thing :) I love him but he watches the stupidest shows EVER. I can't remember the last time we were in the same room together watching TV. At the moment he's watching a survival show because he swears if we ever get lost in the woods he can get us out. He can't find the ketchup in the refrig without help I am pretty sure we will die in the woods no matter what survival show he watches.

    ANYWAY! Thanks for the shout out, these last few logos are tough ones but I will have them all done so you can show them off soon :)

    It was freezing here too but this weekend is lovely minus the rain. I do prefer a bit of cold only because it is winter.

    Have a great week, Carol! Happy Reading! ox

  7. I think I missed last week's Monster Porn. :( I'll read that next. Your kids have a really short school month this month, yeesh. I'm jealous, lol. I need to check out that essential oils book, it looks good. Your nipple comment made me laugh, this blog is so NSFW (not that I can access it at work). :D :D

  8. I am so behind on Supernatural. I may have to start from the beginning again because I can't remember where I left off. :-( Way to go to your daughter! Mine will be starting kindergarten in August and I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet. Graduating high school seems so far off. I hope you have a great week!

  9. Congratulations to your daughter! I need to start watching Supernatural again. I only watched the very first episode which I loved but then got discouraged with how many seasons there are. That is so many episodes I need to watch. But I do love the brothers. I can't wait to see what Michelle designs for you. I want to hire her too but I'm still deciding what meme's I need. I hope you stay warm and have a great week!

  10. I love Supernatural!! But I'm also a little behind and I would love to see them all again from the beginning.. Maybe this year I will be able to.
    Here in the Netherlands we've been hoping the weather would change a bit. It's not nearly as cold as it should be this time of year, and nature is really mixed up.. Flowers are blooming etc. It's weird!
    Have a great week! ;)
