this only gets four stars cats (let’s call it 4.75), not because it doesn’t deserve five, but because i have just a TINY bit of disappointment. i thought the whole book was going to be pictures of dogs gleefully hanging their fuzzy heads out of car windows, fur blowing in the breeze, tongues flapping out; enjoying a good drive as only doggies can.

for some reason, i’m still mildly disappointed that the perceived theme has been broken. this might just be the lack of painkillers talking. final word is that it’s a wonderful book with amazing adorable photographs, i love it like crazy, and it cheered up my whole night after my crummy day. but a girl’s gotta do what she feels, so 4.75 it is.

despite unexpected oral surgery, where they STOLE MY GUMS and were stingy with the painkillers, causing a very crappy start to the day, this book came across my desk JUST NOW, nearly a month before publication and fixed everything. (except giant hole in mouth)

this happens all the time with “regular” books, but rarely with the fun photo books and they’re NEVER finished copies, just ARCs missing lots of their content. “photo TK” thumbs down. but THIS is perfect, beautiful, and a book i was already going to buy, and now i am going to leave work early (or “earlier than usual” – it’s already after 5 and i have been utterly useless today), go home and read this book like crazy while i eat mashed white beans and avocado (soft soft soft) and then watch runway.

this day has suddenly become AWESOME.

except still ouchie

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
