Reading Update
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. I read the first several chapters, then couldn’t continue because the writing was so repetitive. Plus there doesn’t seem to be anything in the book that you couldn’t learn simply by reading all the chapter subheadings via “Look Inside!” on Amazon. And if you do that, you avoid all the repetition!


Mayhem – stoned on socks?! Possibly even drooling…

In which I did my taxes instead of a Misadventure, so have some cute Mayhem on knitted socks pictures instead



Congrats to Dianna, who won Chyna Doll (Horizons #4) by Mickie B Ashling! Chyna Doll is being released today by Dreamspinner Press.



Random bonus picture from my weekend. I call it “Pinata Aftermath” – only five minutes earlier, this monkey had a body:

I’m still puzzled why a yarn designer looked at this colorway (blue/green/brown/black) and decided it needed hints of pink (not visible in the photo), plus sparkles. Yes, all of the little light-colored flecks are sparkles. Link to Ravelry project page.

“Mmmmm… sparkly socks…” -Mayhem

Reading Update
Mario Lemieux: The Final Period by Mario Lemieux & Tom McMillan. Interesting, coffee table style autobiography of Le Magnifique that was heavy on the photos, light on text. I was perfectly ok with that. Of course, after this was published in 1997, Lemieux made another comeback, so this was actually not quite his final period.


“What?” -Mayhem

Reading Update
Under the Skin (Ritual Crime Unit #1) by EE Richardson. Ok shortish paranormal thriller about a 50-something British detective inspector whose people are trying to track down someone misusing ritual magic to make shapeshifters. Throughout the story, I was distracted by the point of view character always being referred to by her last name, yet her coworkers were referred to by their first names. It was just enough for me to feel distanced from the story.
Midnight Blue-Light Special (InCryptid #2) by Seanan McGuire. I only read a few chapters, then set it aside to come back to and never bothered.


Behold the majestic short-tailed house panther in his native habitat! 🙂
