starcat books, pumpkins, and oh my!

Here's a struggling little bookstore, trying to keep going. http://starcatbooks.com/2016/08/10/buy-from-us-online/

They sell ebooks and with a little, ahem, tweaking and pulling and stuff, you can read them on anything, and I do mean anything. I have a kindle, for example. Besides, who doesn't love the idea of sticking it to Amazon now and then? It's a legitimate sale, plus it works for all of you out there who hate Amazon or whomever.

As for updates, well, my house got broken into and my bike got stolen right out from under my nose. The guy's been casing the neighborhood for houses that belong to women, asking all kinds of creepy questions, "Are you alone? Do you live alone? Is the man of the house here?" (How did he know that a "Man of the house" would be more merciful than I would be? Huh.) I almost caught the fucker: I ran after him in bare feet for six blocks, and then I realized, "Ooops, bare feet." My feet got all torn up on newly-spread gravel and asphalt, which I didn't even feel when I was running after him. My knee was the size of a basketball. Not pretty.

A few years ago, the theft would have sent me down into the abyss again, because I was just barely climbing to the lip of the exit. Now I'm furious, wondering how I'm going to get a new bike----I'm not supposed to be running, but damn that felt GOOD,----and worried that I will not get the chance at dismembering the thieving little fucker the way he so richly deserves.

I think it has come time to sharpen one of my machetes on the front step.

Oh, AND:

So sorry this has happened. Darn your new neighborhood sounds just as bad now as your old one.

Yes you do have at least one man of the house...who just happens to be feline.

Oh, Gin. I can't tell you how it warms my heart to see you angry, and to hear that your impulse was to chase him down the street. So different from a few years back. So happy to see this Gin.

Oh, and sorry about the theiving fucker, and I hope you get to kick his ass.

Oh, it wasn't an impulse. I really need to keep my shoes closer so I don't wind up cutting my feet up again. I did chase the fucker down the street----twice. My doctor is going to kill me. I'm not supposed to run, and my knee was the size os a basketball.

I'm so sorry about your knee. I'm still cackling with glee that you ran out of your house and down the street without a second thought.

It felt good. Which I will NOT be telling my doctor.

Fucker. Glad I am not the only one who has that response. Caught a dude watching me in the shower one night, and I went from 0 to 'straight through the window to attack.' He is lucky I was too blind to get the catch fast, but I did run down the alleway butt naked until I too cold and went back to phone the cops.

Sorry about your bike, that sucks though. And the knee.
