Kind of an average week here. Our biggest issue appears to be that my daughter needs finger waves in her hair (and a fake bob) for the school musical. Ack. So she's been watching videos on how to do this and we need a certain size of hair curlers which we can't find. Arrghh. Plus she has the straightest hair on the planet that does not take a curl. I've asked if I'm going to have to take 3 half-days off work to do hair. LOL We'll have to practice, practice, practice, and enlarge the hole in the ozone layer using cans of hair spray, buckets of gel and mousse.
Read a few things this past weekend.
Sugar Milk by Jaryuu Dokuro
I found this description on-line and it's pretty accurate. A series of mostly shounen-ai one-shots, with two stories and a special focusing on childhood friends Sho and Taichi. Taichi always thought they would stay together forever, until Sho decides to up and move away without telling him about it. They run into each other again when Taichi's in university and they end up working at the same diner. This time, Taichi is determined to make it work out. Even if Sho's bisexual. Moral of the story: alcohol can only make things better. I actually found this rather boring, well, I didn't mind the Sho/Taichi story but I found myself just wanting it to be over. Plus this is not the manga style that I generally enjoy. And there was hardly any sex. Hey, if it's going to be a boring story at least make it hot.
The Best Revenge by Andrew Grey (202 pages)
This is one of the Bottled Up books. Tyler is an antiques dealer who meets Mark when he buys some of Mark's mother's furniture. However when they are seen out on a date, Mark's mother kicks him out and he's beaten by his bully brother. He moves in with Tyler and someone starts sending threatening letters and they have to deal with the brother (and supportive sister) when Mark's mother dies and he's left as the executor of the estate. I liked both Tyler and Mark although I thought Mark cried quite a bit. Sometimes it was warranted and sometimes I thought it seemed a bit much and these guys were like bunnies. Holy sex machines. I actually skimmed a bit because it was a bit too much for me, but that might not be for everyone. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood. This is set before many of the other characters in the series so there wasn't much character overlap.
I thought I had one more for here but it was a short so will be on BE eventually. Hope everyone has a good week.
