I'm a WEINER!!! Where do I hide???

Oh wait I know where I can go!!! Since my previous post Art of using the restroom was such a hit I just knew that the bathroom at work would be the perfect hiding space! Yeah no one will miss me for a few hours right? Well let's see if you make enough noise people may just stay out of this shared bathroom! I can always claim Montezuma revenge, oh wait no recent visit to Mexico! HMMM ... ok sick kids lately maybe that will be my excuse. Well crude they just might send me home and I of course don't want to double back and pick up the kids, so then I'd pick them up and have no hope of getting reading done. Hmmm I know Felicia @ Go Graham had a PERFECT hiding spot on her last Wordless Wednesday, you got to check it out
WW: Walk Tall and Carry a Big Bag! I so think I could curl up in it under my desk and read! Yup no one would see my head sticking out of that!

Well it was a thought at least. So I tried to bathroom at work, thankfully no one walked in while I was taking pictures. Can you imagine trying to explain that one? Really I'm not a weirdo I'm just posting pictures for my blog! Ok now that didn't come out right, I'm going to be fully clothed. I just want pictures of me sitting on the toilet. Ok again that doesn't sound right, but really it's just a funny thing to do! Ok please don't haul me away in the white jacket, 1 it makes me look fat and 2 even though it may be a nice quiet padded room my kids and husband will still find me! So girls I so slyly took my purse and a camera into the bathroom and my winning prizes that arrived today! I know stop shaking your head I'm a silly kind of person :).
Check me out, snapping pics in the bathroom!

Trying to get a few pages of my new book :Hypocrite in a pouffy white dress
Just a few pages of book #2 The Baby Fat Diet
Me and my prizes!
I'm a very lucky gal today I won 2 books and they both arrived today! Only one of the wins required me to tell a very personal story of skinny dipping in broad daylight. Oh shhhs I was a teenager at the time. You can read my silly story She stripped and it got her a PRIZE! on my fabulous friend DiPaola Momma at Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom! Her blog rocks and currently she has an AMAZING giveaway going on now Debut of Woo Hoo Box.. Part Deux. Check it out you won't be disappointed :).

As for my amazing new book, that I will look myself in the bathroom tonight is Hypocrite in a pouffy White Dress. Here is what DiPaola Momma had to say about it (makes you want to buy it right away ... huh? I know!!)

One of my great, if indulged in all to seldom, obsessions is reading. Ask me to describe my perfect day and it will with out a doubt include at least three uninterrupted hours with a book and a good bottle of wine. Actually any acceptable form of hooch will do, it’s a Hemmingway thing I guess. Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t necessarily a high brow pass time. I’ll admit I’m not getting lost in Dostoevsky. But you won’t catch me reading Howard Stern’s latest foray into delusional self aggrandizement either (much to my husband’s chagrin). I’d love to consider myself more avaunt-Gard than your average house frau but having read all seven Harry Potter books more times than I care to admit, sort of takes me out of the running. That said though I think I have a nose for a good read and know a good writer when I read them. I’m proud to say that I was reading Ian McEwan well before “Atonement” . I recognize that Frank McCourt is among our greatest American writers having never seen the screen adaptation of “Angela’s Ashes”. Read “Tis” and you’ll understand why in my mind I can compare him to Fitzgerald with conviction. I am no snooty literati by any stretch. I don’t hold any degree in literature. But I know what I like. I’m convinced that I’ve read one of the best writers of my generation and I want you to love her as much as I do! If you can find a photo of your parents looking like something from the Sonny and Cher show. Or if you ever attended a birthday party featuring carob cake and gifts that all came from “mother earth”. Can you NOT recall a number of rock concerts you have been told you attended in your “wild“ days? Do you follow politics, bristle at injustice, watch Indy flicks, consider yourself a citizen of the world and a rebel but still feel faint when faced with a cute pair of shoes on sale? Then I’ve found your book(s) and your new favorite writer. Susan Jane Gillman.. I feel like her name should be in sparkly bold font. Lord it’s hokey but this woman speaks to me. Her writing is vivid, honest, witty, smart and funny as hell!! I’ll let her words speak for themselves… This is from the book that hooked me “Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress”.“When I was little, I was so girlie and ambitious. I was practically a drag queen. I wanted to be everything at once: a prima ballerina, an actress, a model, a famous artist, a nurse, an Ice Capades dancer, and Batgirl.”I devoured this book in one day. I am not a fast reader. It’s hard to be when your only reading takes place in either the last 20 minutes of the day before you pass out. Or with one of your four kids standing over your shoulder saying “What ya reading’?…What’s it about?...What page are you on?…When are you going to be finished with that book MOM!?” Argh… go away people, don’t you have a cat to torture or an outlet to play with? Leave me alone I’m reading, damit! I loved that book so much I ran out and bought her book “Kiss My Tiara: How to rule the world as a smart mouthed Goddess”. Loved it, needless to say.

And now I’m searching for a sitter so I can escape with her new book due out in March “Undress me in the temple of Heaven”… um doesn’t the title alone get ya?! If not here is a great teaser:

“In 1986, fresh out of college, Susan Jane Gilman and her friend Chloe dreamed of hitting the road as modern-day female Kerouacs. Inspired by a placemat at the International House of Pancakes, they mapped out a trip circling the globe, then headed west--to China. At that point in time, the People's Republic had been open to backpackers for barely ten minutes. But Susan and Chloe relished the challenge. Having been told throughout their Ivy League schooling that they were "the future leaders of America," they were eager to boldly take on the world. Unfortunately, the world had other ideas.

Book #2 is wonderful also and came just in the nick of time, you know before my butt burst thru these pants that the dryer shrunk. Shhhs that's my story and I'm sticking to it! I won this wonderful book on Camy Tangs Blog (http://camys-loft.blogspot.com) Book giveaway - The Baby Fat Diet by Monica Bearden and Shara Aaron.

Here is what Camy had to say about the book! You know you're going to want to read it:

Motherhood doesn't have to mean permanent weight gain!Get rid of those post-pregnancy pounds even if your youngest is already in school.Losing the baby fat is one of the hardest things for mothers even years after they give birth. Eating for two often results in gaining too much weight, and the more a woman gains, the harder it is to lose. And after having kids, moms are so busy and distracted it’s necessary for them to learn how to eat in a healthy, self-nurturing way again.

In The Baby Fat Diet, moms will be relieved to learn that small changes can make a big difference. Restrictive dieting and cutting out favorite foods to the extreme isn’t necessary.

The book offers simple, easy-to-live-by health and nutrition tips that help women change the behaviors that make losing weight so difficult. The 30 timeless tips throughout are eminently practical and the recipes are delicious. Not only will moms lose weight on The Baby Fat Diet, they'll feel good about themselves, too. Moms will discover:* Eating for one again* The importance of portion sizes* Why breakfast is a weight-loss ally* The fast-food solution* Pairing pleasure with healthy foods* Exercising to the Wiggles(R)
