Reviews in Brief

I read two books this past month. Yeah, I'm amazing. Ha ha

The Happiest Baby on the Block by Harvery Karp, MD.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. It's geared toward parents of babies with colic (which Baby E does not have), but the 5 S's of calming a baby have proven so incredibly useful. And the new burping technique has saved us countless hours. Since Baby E IS a gassy little girl.

The Husband by Dean Koontz.
Yeah, I know, Dean Koontz. Stop rolling your eyes! I know his writing is horrible and his metaphors make me laugh out loud they are so bad, but the story itself is good. I even got Dh to read this one. He's almost done with it! Try it. You'll like it. And it will only take three days max. I think I read it in four, and hi! I have a new baby, so you have no excuse.

Something New
An enjoyable if retarded chick flick. (Don't most chick flicks fall into this category?)

Oral Fixation Vol. 2 by Shakira.
Didn't get enough questionably rhyming lyrics in Laundry Service? Grab Oral Fixation Vol. 2 to get your fix! Ah, who cares? You don't listen to Shakira sing in English for the lyrics. It's for shaking your booty to!*

*Apparently, my own English is not so hot. Ending a sentence with a preposition. I know better than that.

I love that you know not to ending a sentence with a preposition.
By trade, I'm an editor. But I know I break grammatical rules all the time.

I also love that you know not to end a sentence with a preposition. One of my weird party tricks is that I have all the prepositional phrases in the English language memorized for some bizarre reason (to a song I learned in elementary school). I constantly break grammatical rules while writing in my own journal (you gotta keep it real!) but the prepositions and I have a special bond.
