Hey All, hope everyone is having a nice week. The weather is crisp, I’ve still got leftovers from Thanksgiving in my freezer and I’m preparing myself for the next wave of insanity. That insanity is of course called Christmas.
My Aunt and Uncle always do a traditional, English breakfast on Christmas morning. It’s your basic, awesome fry up with eggs, stewed tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, nine thousand different types of bangers and of course the most glorious of meats, bacon.
Unfortunately my aunt and uncle are getting on in years and wont be hosting the traditional breakfast this year. Instead my sister has decided to take up the mantle and host. This is of course very generous of her to do this, but I am filled with some trepidation and dread about my sister taking over this hallowed tradition.
Not because she’s incapable or a bad host, no, it’s far more potentially disastrous. You see, my sister is a vegetarian.
There, I said it.
Now I have nothing wrong with vegetarians. I myself have cut down my consumption of meat dramatically and eat far more protein laden vegetables than I have in the past. But of course I do eat meat…I’m not maniac.
But, should a vegetarian be in charge of such a meat-centric holiday occasion?
I don’t know. I have been told that of course there will be a fine selection of meats, both in tube form and of course those lovely, squiggly, nitrate sticks I hold so dear.
I am currently taking people at their word, and live in hope. But come December 25th, if any person says to me…”No, it’s tofu, just try it, it tastes just like bacon.” I’m putting a horse head in their bed while they sleep.
Now, let’s get on with the hackery and pluggery.
Have you heard that the Hungry Monster book review gave my novel The Geek five out of five stars in its review? I know! Crazy right!? Well I’m pretty stoked about it, and if you’d like to read the review yourself, check it out here http://bit.ly/1MAAyZQ
Why not check out my amazon author’s page (it’s quite witty) and pick up a copy for yourself in ebook or paperback. Of course as an ebook it’s available everywhere but for old school paperback head to amazon.
You can also pick up a copy of my kindle exclusive D’jinn and Other Stories, only available on amazon as an ebook and totally free if you have kindle unlimited. http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6
Over on my blog Reluctant Joy it’s another micro story fitting my theme of esoteric meanderings entitled AIR http://bit.ly/rljywp
Over on Stuff & Stuff my friend Tyler stops by with his buddy Josh and we talk Fallout 4, sex with robots, parenting skills and Tyler reveals his PC over console snobbery. http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH
And now for the usual crap and one new piece.
Follow me on Twitter blahblahblah http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA
Facebook! It’s like a book, for faces but it’s not a book and you get bombarded with creepy ads related to things you’ve looked at online while away from facebook. It’s really just Mark Zuckerberg’s way of telling you that he cares and is watching absolutely everything you do online. If that sort of thing sounds double-plus good to you why not like and follow me there http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp
And hey I’ve even got a goodreads author page now…I think I’m really starting to get the hang of this whole 21st century thing http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k
Well I hope everybody has a great rest of the week and that you enjoy your weekend too.
See you all Monday.
