Not late today whohoo! Travel last week was not much fun, but I arrived safe and sound home. I did have one fun pilot who literally said YAY! in that happy high pitched way, lol. It made travel a little more fun. Now it is time to start thinking ahead to the next convention in March but here we go with the reading.

Merry Christmas if you celebrate, Happy Holidays if you celebrate one of the other winter Holidays and a convivial day in December if you don’t celebrate any of them. This is the last Teaser Tuesday of 2018, wow has this year flown by! I will do a year end post soon and I am going to be working on my reviews that I am behind on in the next few days too. I decented to “opt out” of the Holiday’s this year and am having some hermit time at a place in The City of Angeles. I know it sounds very silly to be in LA to get “away” from people, but since I am not going to any of the big sites and such it was a place I wanted to go and close enough to home base that it wouldn’t cost a mint in general. I fully plan on enjoying a walk on Venice beach later today or tomorrow. Anyways, I don’t want to overbore you lol. Thank you all for being here, I was so honored to be chosen to take over Musing Monday and Teaser Tuesday my mind boggles that I took over around this time in 2016…time really is just flying on by. Wow! I know I haven’t posted a Musing Monday in a while, but I will be bringing it back in the new year and explaining why I dropped the ball on that one as well. Now with all of that said here is this week’s Teaser, I am going to be following what I did last week as I haven’t had time to dig into a new book after completeing my challenge. So here is a teaser from a TBR book and it makes me want to stick it at the top of my to read stack!

“Learning became her. She loved the smell of the book from the shelves, the type on the pages, the sense that the world was an infinite but knowable place. Every fact she learned seemed to open another question, and for every question there was another book.”~ A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick

The holiday buzz is all around lately! This time of year is always a whirlwind for me. I feel like it has been nothing but work work work for a while now. I am looking forward to my short get away over Christmas time. I am hoping to use that period of time to do some organzing, catch up on the book reviews for this blog (I have been so so very behind) and making a schedule to keep to for posting on my other blogs as well. I miss blogging, but I won’t go into that to deeply at the moment. It is Teaser Tuesday! I have finished my book challenge for the year, but I am still reading as I have time to.

I have posted a few teasers from the two books I still have on my nightstand as my current reads, so this week I have decided to pull a teaser from my TBR for you, so it is a different book.

“The chowdry, or burqa — the Saudi, North African, and Central Asian version of the head, face, and body shroud — is a sensory deprivation isolation chamber. It is claustrophobic, may lead to anxiety and depression, and reinforces a woman’s already low self-esteem. It may also lead to vitamin D deficiency diseases such as osteoporosis and heart disease. Sensory deprivation officially constitutes torture and is practiced as such in the world’s prisons.” An American Bride in Kabul by Phyllis Chesler

Anyone else feeling a little overwhelmed with the end of year stuff? I know I am. I am also feelig a bit daunted as just a few days into the new year I am going to be doing a big convention as a vendor eeek.

“Folk tell their children that success lies in working hard and being thrifty, but that is as much nonsense as supposing that a badger, a fox and a wolf could build a church. The way to wealth is to become a Christian bishop or a monastery’s abbot and thus be imbued with heaven’s permission to lie, cheat and steal your way to luxury.” ― Bernard Cornwell, The Burning Land

Short, sweet and true this week, lol.

“Love is a dangerous thing. It comes in disguise to change our life… Lust is the deceiver. Lust wrenches our lives until nothing matters except the one we think we love, and under that deceptive spell we kill for them, give all for them, and then, when we have what we have wanted, we discover that it is all an illusion and nothing is there. Lust is a voyage to nowhere, to an empty land, but some men just love such voyages and never care about the destination. Love is a voyage too, a voyage with no destination except death, but a voyage of bliss.”― Bernard Cornwell, Sword Song

I feel like I had a moment of adult level up yesterday! My poor mail and UPS man were not nearly as excited about this as I was *LOL* imagine a new mattress, 3 sets of sheets, pillows etc. all arriving via post. Then add in a whole slew of supplies for a small business prepping for a huge convention in January. Yeah that was me yesterday, LOL. The bed is like sleeping on the most comfortable cloud ever. Needless to say I have a pile of fur balls sharing as well. Diva didn’t even let me get the sheets on before she tested out the new mattress. Funny note that goes with this, I was feeling slightly silly and yet also very adult by also ordering a mattress protector for my new bed. I mean you should protect your purchase right? And full confession here I eat in bed and yes things get spilled and sometimes a sick or baby fur love or two legger, well you know how it goes. Then I had a moment of fear after it shipped that I had just ordered one of those plastic things that your parents put on the bed when you were little JUST IN CASE for the bed wetting and I was like oh gods…..now I am like an adult baby or something. Blessedly the mattress protector is not one of those LOL it is actually kind of nice and protects against mites and all those other things you don’t want around. So….adult level up? Yeah? Anyways on to the part you are here for..LOL the Teaser.

This week is a long one, because the first is just so funny and because the second I am including is one of my favorite passages in this book, I am re-reading in honor of The Last Kingdom Season 3. Some books need more then one, right?

“You’re a bastard,” I said.

“Uhtred,” he began, but could find nothing more to say.

“You’re a piece of weasel-shit,” I said, “you’re an earsling.”

“I’m a king,” he said, trying to regain his dignity.

“So you’re a royal piece of weasel-shit. An earsling on a throne.”
― Bernard Cornwell, Lords of the North

“I am no Christian. These days it does no good to confess that, for the bishops and abbots have too much influence and it is easier to pretend to a faith than to fight angry ideas. I was raised a Christian, but at ten years old, when I was taken into Ragnar’s family, I discovered the old Saxon gods who were also the gods of the Danes and of the Norsemen, and their worship has always made more sense to me than bowing down to a god who belongs to a country so far away that I have met no one who has ever been there. Thor and Odin walked our hills, slept in our valleys, loved our women and drank from our streams, and that makes them seem like neighbours. The other thing I like about our gods is that they are not obsessed with us. They have their own squabbles and love affairs and seem to ignore us much of the time, but the Christian god has nothing better to do than to make rules for us. He makes rules, more rules, prohibitions and commandments, and he needs hundreds of black-robed priests and monks to make sure we obey those laws. He strikes me as a very grumpy god, that one, even though his priests are forever claiming that he loves us. I have never been so stupid as to think that Thor or Odin or Hoder loved me, though I hope at times they have thought me worthy of them.”

Last week’s quote was a bit dark I know, sorry if it upset anyone a bit. It is real life for sure though. I’ll be posting my review for that book soon, it really is a great book.

So funny story about this weeks quote. I picked up a copy of this book at Half Price bookshop when I was visiting my Mom. I forgot….I had read this one as the second book in the series. *Insert epic facepalm here* It wasn’t until I started reading it that I went, oh damn, I already read this one ages ago. Whoops. Since I bought the copy I figured I might as well read it again, lol then move to book 3 maybe I will read before for I forget I read book 2 this time, lol.

“But that was life: Nobody got a guided tour to their own theme park. You had to hop on the rides as they presented themselves, never knowing whether you would like the one you were in line for…or if the bastard was going to make you throw up your corn dog and your cotton candy all over the place.” – Crave
