The Gargoyle, by Andrew Davidson is getting a lot of press. I have seen it featured on many of the book blogs that I visit and I must say, I am dying to get my hands on it!
Here is a snippet from Barnes & Noble:
The narrator of The Gargoyle is a very contemporary cynic, physically beautiful and sexually adept, who dwells in the moral vacuum that is modern life. As the book opens, he is driving along a dark road when he is distracted by what seems to be a flight of arrows. He crashes into a ravine and suffers horrible burns over much of his body. As he recovers in a burn ward, undergoing the tortures of the damned, he awaits the day when he can leave the hospital and commit carefully planned suicide—for he is now a monster in appearance as well as in soul.

The weekend is finally here. Boy, has it been a long week! People have been asking me for stuff at work (the nerve) and then school started for the kids so my world has been a bit chaotic. My little one just cannot get going in the morning without a battle. Grrrr.
Tonight is the big PTO Spaghetti & Bingo night. Yes, I am also on PTO and this is one of the events that the kids (and parents) really get a kick out of. We’ll be dishing out pasta and calling out numbers and hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy a little bit of time with my own family. My son is just dying to call out the numbers. We shall see.
My friend had a big “back to school” pool party planned for this weekend but it had to be cancelled at the last minute, so my weekend is open. My husband has some special training he has to go to on Sunday (yep, a Sunday) so the age old question comes up. What do I do with the kids? I sort of just want to stay home and hang out but they always get bored. I don’t get kids. They always have to be doing something 24/7. I could easily spend the entire weekend just moping around relaxing.
I guess that is the different between kids and an almost forty-year-old.
