Super Bowl Sunday and Music Monday

So the Super Bowl was yesterday and I am sad that the 49ers lost, but I guess they didn’t lose as spectacularly bad as I thought they were going to do closing the gap 34 to 31.

The 49ers just didn’t have the defense or offense to beat the Ravens, but the hope that had blossomed from my chest after the halftime show almost made me want to vomit when they didn’t win.

The blackout that lasted over 30 minutes almost ruined the entire game for me, and the commercials which were once my favorite thing about the SuperBowl just really lacked the usual flare they have. Overall I wished I watched the PuppyBowl.

I did however enjoy the Halftime show surprisingly. Beyonce while not my favorite singer did a pretty good job, and the Destiny’s Child reunion, that I knew was coming, made me squeal with joy. Oh how I long for them to go on tours, I’d have tickets in a heartbeat.

So for Music Monday I give you Beyonce’s Super Bowl 2013 halftime show.

I read!?

Most people don’t know this but I read. A lot. It is somewhat hard to get me interested, but when I am I won’t put the book down until I’m done.

Most of the time I forget to eat, shower, and sometimes will forgo the sleep I so love but hardly get.

Today I had decided to brave the rain and visited Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore In Redondo Beach to join L.A. Kornetsky in her signing of the Book collared.

I was a very intimate gathering that offered me some time to chat with the author and get my book signed, I felt accomplished when I left the bookstore (along with two new books) and got home

Written by: L.A. Kornetsky

Synopsis: Ginny Mallard and her shar-pei, Georgie, are about to run out of kibble and cash, unless she digs up another client for her private concierge business. So she heads to her neighborhood Seattle bar, Mary’s, to sniff out an opportunity. Or a gimlet or two. The bartender, Teddy Tonica, is usually good for a round of challenging banter, and Georgie is oddly fond of his bar cat, Mistress Penny. Before she can say “bottoms up,” Ginny lands a job tracking down some important business papers that have gone missing—along with the customer’s uncle. If Ginny hopes to track him down, she’ll need more than her research skills: she’ll need a partner with people skills—like Tonica.
This is one dangerous case that’s about to go to the dogs—unless man, woman, cat, and canine can work together as one very unconventional crime-solving team

This book is entertaining and a very easy read (I finished the book in a couple of days). To my delight the characters were very relate-able and deliciously humans with their reactions and emotions. I really like the scenes with the pets and was very believable that the characters were interacting with real pets. The Author did very well on her research of the Seattle area and on interactions with animals.  As for the mystery aspect of the book I was hoping something…. More. I don’t how to describe it but it seemed lacking somewhat in the mystery department.

Overall this book was very entertaining and funny and I recommend this book to any animal lovers or mystery readers. I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars.
