Abby Normal Ly Attracted to What?

I was getting really excited about the newest Tori Amos release titled Abnormally Attracted To Sin, and wanting to review it here for you. Some of you know that I have been fanatically fond of Tori for 15 years. In fact, I remained faithful to Tori until I met my most gorgeous man, Rufus. I even had a weekly column called Tori Tuesday here on my blog way back in the day.
I am sorry to say that I totally hate the new Tori stuff. Every song makes me think, "That sounds just like her Choir Girl Hotel phase." or, "that song is totally Scarlets Walk all over again..." Just saying that if you've already done it, Tori, why do it again?
How disappointing....sigh. Hey, I know getting older sucks Tori. Trust me, I know because I'll be 49 in two months, but I had to look far and wide for a really hot picture of Ms. Amos at this stage of her life. Sigh...listening to Scarlets Walk right now Tori, just to remind myself how most excellent you can be. (So harsh, I know...)

Now, some of you know that Mr Ratburn is a teacher and yesterday he came home with this book which just made me laugh really hard. He said the book is both useful and funny, and I did see him chuckling a few times which is rare for teacher bookstuff reading. I'm sure we could all use this book. All of us except this girl, she crafts the best sentences! Sometimes I count the words in her sentences and cannot believe she was able to make such a wonderful sentence so long and also still made a lot of sense unlike the sort of sentences I write which often do not make sense at all and I also noticed I repeat words that I might have used in the previous sentence, erm, too.
In other news, I am sewing my arse off because I have the privilege of hanging out with the Claypools this Sunday at the local freakage fair and running our clothing/cashmere booth. I have been busy making all sorts of funky, sexy and fun bloomers which will not appear in my shop until after the regatta, just in case I sell 'em and all, you know!
I'm getting really excited about India already and have news that one of my ol' pals is expecting a baby about when I get there. That will be fun for sure. I am looking forward to sharing India with yet another friend who I have known for over 22 years. Like last year, she is a woman with very blonde, almost white hair and blue eyes. I wonder if she is going to show up at the airport as a brunette like Eileenji did last year? I do hope she keeps her lovely hair color...
So yeah, I am almost squealing with exitement about getting back to my India in...

Have a Lovely Weekend!
