Best Quote of the Week: "I Like My Boobs. They've Always Served Me Well."


1. Best Quote of the Week: Oh, how I love Jennifer Love Hewitt! Ever since the time she took credit for the stretched-out-sweater-cuff look (I read an article where she said she felt flattered that young teenage girls were all wearing their sweaters stretched out with the cuffs hanging down their hands, since she invented that "look"...hee hee), I love her. I especially enjoyed this quote....

"...I like my boobs. They've always served me well. They're good."

Heeeeeeee!!!!!! Boobalicious!

2. I have been following the heart-breaking story of Lola the Dachshund, an adorable 10 week old doxie who was thrown out of a 3rd story balcony. She almost died, but luckily she has survived and Natty and I really, really, really, really want to adopt her. Really. We are ready to jump in the car and drive to Alabama to get her. Unfortunately, so are 10 million other people, thanks to People Magazine! I filled out an adoption application, but I'm pretty sure my chances are hideously bad. :^( But at least Lola is on the mend!



3. I am so excited for The Avengers movie, I can't stand it! It's coming out May 4th....here is a link for the trailer!




4. Cool new website alert! Coffee with a Canine. Lucy and I will be interviewed there soon. I will be sipping a cup of French roast coffee. And Lucy will be sipping a latte with cinnamon on top.

5. I decided to read Casino Royale by Ian Fleming for my Penelope Project this month. It doesn't have a heroine named Penelope, but it does have Miss Moneypenny, which is just as good. It's the very first installment of the James Bond series by Fleming. And it doesn't hurt that I keep imagining Daniel Craig in boy short swim trunks. Schwing!


6. I also added Avi Steinberg's book Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian to my TBR pile. As you may recall, Avi wrote an article about porno librarians, and my book Sweet Magik was casually mentioned as a soft-porn selection. (*waiting for laughter to stop.....still waiting...Christ, it's not that funny already*) Anyhoo, I decided some payback was in order. So, I'm going to read his book. Which I am pretty sure is not pornographic. But it is about a librarian.

7. Well, that's a wrap for today. I'm off to plan my workshop for conference.

Ciao,
Penelope

Poor dog. Some people are just cruel.

Hubby's looking forward to The Avengers, so I guess I'll be seeing it too! LOL

Casey Wyatt said...

I can't wait for the Avengers. I will miss the Scarlet Witch (but her outfit would look ridiculous in a movie). People who are cruel to animals deserve their own level in Hell.

KB/KT Grant said...

People who abuse animals are scum and deserve to burn in hell. That poor innocent puppy. I hope Lola survives and lives a long life and finds love and kindness elsewhere, hopefully with you!

Penelope said...

Hi Amber! There are not a lot of movies that are good for the whole family, but this one is. Can't wait!

Penelope said...

Hi Casey.....My heart broke when I saw that story about Lola. I think Lucy would like to lick her back to good health. Maybe we'll get her....I'm crossing my fingers!

Penelope said...

Hi KB....you are right. They are scum. I know Lola is going to get a loving family....there are millions of people cheering for her now!

Me and 5 year old Charlie want to see the Avengers, his sister and Grandma, not so much..

As to the rest well Ishbel's boobs have served me well for 35 years, 11 months 3 weeks and well you get my drift and they still make well anyway .......

I don't think I have ever read a Bond book, how strange

You know me and dogs, but someone, someday will make it right and throw the sad bastard who did it out of a high rise window, Karma, and all will be well with the world again

xx

Tom! Lucky you...hee hee!

You should read a Bond book and tell me what you think. It's very interesting because it was published in 1953, so things we take for granted now about spies, were really first introduced in this series. It's pretty cool.

I've been a huge fan of JLH for like ever. I love that she has a good sense of humor.

Awww poor puppy. I'm so glad he's going to get a good home out of this terrible situation.

Penelope said...

Hi Juju! I would be pretty psyched if my boobs looked like hers, too...hee hee!

Julia Rachel Barrett said...

Daniel Craig is the only man on earth I will forgive for wearing those short shorts. Well, back in the day... Sean Connery. But that's it!
No matter how dorky, I want to see The Avengers.
Hope you enjoy Casino Royale. And wish you could get Lola, but she will go to a wonderful home, I'm sure.
You know people who abuse animals also abuse people. I propose long prison sentences, as in life prison sentences.

Penelope said...

I wish The Avengers was coming out sooner....we could see it together in Boston. That would be so fun. Oh well.

Those boy shorts are the ultimate test of manliness. If you can work the shorts, you got it, baby!
