Ugh. My Nemesis AGAIN.

So, my Nemesis, Mercedes M. Yardley is at it again. ANOTHER book. What, is she a writer or something? Her new release is Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy. 

It's Awesome. I got to read it a while ago and it's an amazing read. 

It's "...a tapestry of lush imagery, poetic prose, and beautiful violence about a woman destined to be murdered and her flight from Fates inevitableyet seemingly terriblemarksmanship."

Yes. All of that. And more. Check out the cover...

Gimmie Some Sugar, Baby

Take a look at this vintage ad taken from Life Magazine, July 25, 1969, extolling the benefits of sugar.

When's your "Fat Time" and what, exactly is your "appestat"?

Eat a candy bar before dinner to reduce your appetite! Er... appestat! 

Sugar... only 18 calories per teaspoon, AND IT'S ALL ENERGY!

I'm not sure if you can see the fine print, but it's not a disclaimer like we'd see today, or a reference to a scientific study; it's a passage from Webster's Dictionary defining "appestat". 

Yes. I need serious help with my diet and sugar is just the thing to do it!

Sugar... It's what's for dinner!

RIP Robin Williams

Robin Williams died yesterday. He was a hero of mine for so many years. I was going to include a bunch of pictures here, but this one makes me the happiest.
