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

On the Home Front: I think I may be getting back into a groove. However, I'll be heading to Ohio Weds to visit my mom, but I'll be back the 27th. Anna and Trip are going with me, leaving hubby and Kyle here to man the fort. On the 29th, Kyle will be getting his braces off. Thank goodness! He's only had them for a million years. Other than that I really don't have anything of interest to report.

Touching Nature: Hot, rainy, then not rainy but still hot...when's Fall supposed to get here again? I mowed Thursday and it was hot and humid. I thought I was gonna croak. We moved the last two azaleas. I hope they like their new location because that was a pain in the ass, so they better not die.

Book News: I had 9 reviews to write, but I knocked out 4, so 5 left. I may try to whittle that down today. I'm 23 books behind schedule on my Goodreads Challenge, but I'm not sweating it. I'm hoping to have a Monster Porn Monday post for Sept 3rd. *fingers crossed*

Don't Touch That Dial!: We're still on CSI, but we're getting to the end. We just started Season 13. Trip and I have gone on hiatus. He and Kyle have been playing video games in the evening and I've been reading or farting around on the internet. We'll get back to our favorites like The Flash, Arrow and Star Wars (among many others) eventually.

At the Flicks: Nope. Next month the boys want to see The Predator, but I don't so I may just drop them off and go out to lunch.

Cyberspace Playground: Still playing Pokémon and Wordscapes, but I gotta tell ya, I'm getting mighty close to the end. Wordscapes has had two updates and neither one added levels. GAH! What the hell is going on?! It's only been out a little over a year. Did they just give up on it already?

Randomness: If you have not discovered True Facts on Facebook then you NEED to watch this shit. Like, right now. Hilarious! Here's the latest video. You're welcome.

Carol's Nuggets of Wisdom: When you find something funny on the internet please share. The world sucks ass right now so we need all the fun, funny, and heartwarming shit you can find.

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

  1. True Facts is hilarious and whoever writes it is a genius even the guy that does the narration is perfect. I had seem on a long time ago about an angler fish but I can't find it. It might be on Youtube that was funny. Cuttlefish one kills me.

    MONSTER PORN! i miss reading your monster porn Mondays. I miss reading monster porn. I need to get back into that. I just can't seem to stop reading reverse harem.

    Enjoy the time with your mom. I may or may not have like a million reviews to write *picks up another book*

    Have a great week, Carol! Happy Reading! ox

    1. I found True Facts a few months ago and was trying to make them last by watching only 1 or 2 at a time. But then I got in a funk the other day and watched them all. Except the snail one which came out the day after my binge, so yay! lol

      I've got a couple I need to read for the Sept 3rd post, so I hope I can get that done and reviews written before then.

      Will do! We're going to go through pictures and get them labeled. My oldest brother is going to be there, too. And on Saturday we're going to a microbrewery. Woot!

      Thanks and you, too! XOXO

  2. Oh my god, that snail vid is hilarious. Hey, and no rushing fall my friend. We moved bushes one year, 26 in all. Only one didn't make it. I blame the hubby.

    1. I love that narrator. He cracks me up. I wish I hadn't watched all the videos in a binge the other day though. lol

      I want Fall. Though Fall for us only means it's in the 70s instead of the 90s so don't go gettin' upset about the flip flops being put away just yet. lolol

      Unfortunately hubby was only the muscle, so if they die it'll be my fault. *grimace*

  3. OMG that snail video is hilarious. I just finished a book about animal cannibalism, and it talked about snails and their love darts. Snails are all kinds of weird. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I love all the True Facts videos. I hope they never stop doing them. lol

  4. That does look like Affleck right? Glad you pointed that out. I no longer count the number of reviews pending with me. I don't want feel too guilty already. Have fun at your Mom's.

    Gayathri @ Elgee Writes

    1. Thank goodness! I thought it was just me who thought that. lol I finished my reviews and then promptly read 3 short stories. So, the cycle continues. :D
