Rx for the day from hell

We all have em: the day that starts bad and gets worse. Today was that day. I got through it of course, and if I wasn't telling the world about it here, probably no one would know. Except the people across the hall who might have thought a puma was loose in the place given the crashing, yowling and hissing that could be heard even through closed doors.

Well I survived. And so did the apartment.

But at the end of the day it was time for some therapy.  Not my usual. I didn't want to be drunk and stupid and in a foul mood. That's a recipe for disaster of epic proportions (don't ask me how I know this.)

No, this disaster called for an intervention of a different sort. This disaster required SuperAuthor Kristan Higgins.

Because truthfully, nothing cures a foul frame of mind better than a good romantic comedy and Kristan Higgins is a master of the form.  I've read and loved her books before.  I keep them in a locked cupboard, along with the tourniquet, morphine, and fire ax.  "Use only when disaster strikes" supplies.

Well it did, and I did, and it worked.



MY ONE AND ONLY. You might want to keep a copy in your disaster preparedness bag.  Me, I've got two more just in case.

Book therapy is similar to movie therapy. I can't read when I'm cranky. I hope tomorrow will be better. Love from downunder.

Oh, man! I must stay away from this blog. I don't have time to read all these books...well, maybe for this book, my dirty house can wait just one more day.

Oh no, I sure hope the weekend will cure your woes. By the way, reading your blog is usually a bright spot in my days.

I didn't think it was possible for you to have a bad day during shark week, but I suppose it happens. I'm glad you feel better, though.

I've been debating about this one on Kobo. I think I'm going to give it a shot and download it now.

I read one of hers after you posted about 'voice'. It was fantastic! Therapy is exactly right. I'm going to remember this recommendation for next time I *really* need it.

You were the one who first got me hooked on Kristan Higgins and I've since devoured everything she's written. Love, love, LOVE her! Thanks for introducing me to one of my very favorite authors.
