My sister laughed to tears and demanded more. I wrote more. You can say Shizzle, Inc was an email soap opera before I've decided that there was enough comedy there to turn it into a novel. (less)

I found my mojo! In a pot. (Warning: graphic images)

In a 5-gallon stockpot, to be precise. Yes, I’m cooking, and it’s as shocking to me as it is to Josh, who claims that in the last two weekends I’d spent more time in the kitchen than in the four years he’d known me. And to be honest, he is only slightly exaggerating.



It started as part of this overall pledge I made to myself, to be healthier and to not ever let myself get as run down as I was ri...

Note: I listened to an audio edition to this book.

The audio edition is probably also the reason why I managed to finish it - I kept drudging through the story on my way to and from work. Such a disappointment. First of all, despite all the promises o

Please note: I listened to the audio version of this book, and so some credit has to go to the two voice actors, who have done a great job.

I would have given this book five stars, if not for the cheesy bits throughout the first half. There were a few

“A million dollars. Think about it for a moment. It’s not just a large number – it’s a symbol of everything we’ve been told to want in this world. Foreign cars with doors that swing up like magical wings. Houses with in-ground pools and wine cellars. Wines that are older than you, and foods with names that can’t be pronounced by mere mortals. A million dollars would open the kind of doors the general public doesn’t even know exist.”

“Debt is always negative, no matter how positively you try to look at it. The “minus” sign in front of your bank balance is a dead giveaway, despite what you might think about leveraging or whatever. It’s even worse when it’s a credit card or a student loan, and you can’t even remember what you’ve bought or learned with it. Sure, the minimum repayments will eventually cancel it out, but by that time you will most likely have dentures and be peeing anywhere you damn well please.”
