that time i spent all night cackling like a witch.

description

family, amirite?

so, last night i was all sad and angry over this motherfucker ex, all heartbroke and bitter—tossing and turning, the betrayed expression on my face i could fucking feel without having to look in a mirror bcuz emo dominican with mental health issues—with the pettish scrolling through an endless yet meticulously-curated ibook library of garbage, looking for something to put me to sleep—the sudden recollection that i'd tried to read this book three different times and was pissed-off by the choppy prologue all three times...

...followed by no less than four hours of hilarity and delight, culminating with, i sweardaggod, ten minutes straight of lawling my head off at the last paragraph.

some will say sleep deprivation played a role in my heedless enjoyment of this book, but i maintain simply that my body was not quite ready to have this much fun.

nits you may or may not wish to observe me picking: (view spoiler)

comedy gold, people.

gold.

breezy, snappy, bitchy, hurly-burly fantasy escandalo. i lived.

I SAID I LIVED, OK

i started this night like this:

Now I'm imagining your love life as a time-travel story in which agents from the future are intervening to make sure you're fucked over for mysterious, important reasons which may or may not someday be revealed.

Miriam (But sorry it has to hurt now.)


Julio Genao it's more like the same agent, across all space and time

a sort of boyfriendborg

Your mouth is saying "no" but your body is saying "resistance is futile"?


Julio Genao yes.

goddammit.

Vanessa North That firecracker gif has my whole family in stitches. I fear for the future of my children. But I let them watch it anyway, because there was no way to prevent it when they heard the Viking and I howling with unrestrained glee.


Julio Genao i saved it speyshul for a review like this. been sitting on it for months :-P

Just make it clear that their future ends abruptly the moment they try replicating that prank on you.

If my brother did that, it would be fucking WAR! Seems like a dumbass thing he would have done. One advantage to being in the Caribbean was getting your hands on that sort of shit was near impossible.

Vivian PS. Nice review :)

jalayia did you read that book


Sofia Glad I saw your review of this, which made me read it and so made me laugh. Can I ask, during your stalking did you discover if any more is going to be written about this world/family ?


Julio Genao I'm not sure, and I couldn't bring myself to ask (she seemed to have like six different projects going on at once and didn't want to add any pressure) but it seems kinda likely?


Sofia I get that feeling as well but it might just be our wishful thinking :) (view spoiler)


Julio Genao heh. im sure.


Sofia What you're not?


Julio Genao satyrs are more my thing. especially the ones in the coyote books by vaughn demont
