The Book of Pinky

Pinky and family!


My bloggy friend Hugzilla, who writes so dern tootin, granny-slappin good (in fact she’s hotter than a goat’s butt in a pepper patch), has tagged poor lil me in a post.

This is what she went and blabbed about me…
“Because she’s a teacher, so she be real smart I reckon.”

Well listen lil lady, just cuz you’n is a teacher don’t mean diddly squat. 

Ah’ve known plenny a teachers what ain’t right in the head… a bit touched if ya know what ah’m sayin.

Ah’ll have a go at these here questions but ah dunno if ah’m up for it.

Ah’d like to say I was happy as a puppy with two peckers about this but it got me worried. But, ah had to decide if ah was gonna poop or git off the pot, so here’s what ah came up with.



Do you snack while you read?

When ah was a young’un, sometimes ah liked to fix up a mess a tater chips with mater sauce to have beside me while ah read ma book. These days I is too fat around the middle to partake of such a fine luxury.



Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?

Tarnation! Ah would never dream of desecratin’ a book! Although ah do recolleck drawin in some of those learnin books we had at the you-nee-versit-ee.



Fiction, non-fiction, or both?

Ah was reared up to read all kinda books so ah don’t favour one over ta other.



Hard copy or ebooks?

Ah don’t like to tote around a pile a books cuz it makes me meaner an a striped snake so ah read all ma books on ma Kindle.



Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you able to put a book down at any point?

Beats the heck outta me? Ah just read til ah fall asleep cuz I’m usually drunker than Cootey Brown.



What are you currently reading?

Ah’m readin Gillian Flynn’s “Dark Places”, cuz she’s finer than a box of snuff, and ah love all her dern dang books.



What is the last book you bought?

Ah don’t like to chew ma cabbage twice! Ah just dang told ya that one!



Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?

Ah went to the schoolhouse and done all mah learnin’ but ah ain’t smart enough to read two at the same time, gol durn it!




Do you have a favourite time of day and/or place to read?

Ah like to sit in ma rockin chair on ma porch as the sun sets, with the jarflies chirrupin and the lightnin bugs floatin around me. But usually the critters need feedin’ so ah wait til bedtime.



Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?

“Replay” by Ken Grimwood. I knowed it was gonna be a goodun from the first page. Ah’ve read that dang book three times already and will be readin it again direckly.





Is that all you need to know ya nosey parker? It’s hotter than blue blazes up here yonder in North Queensland and ah’m aimin on goin for a dip up yonder a ways, down by the crick.



See you’all later alligator!

Oh! And ah tag Alana from House Goes Home cuz ah love her'n and Kez from Awesomely Unprepared cuz ah dern dang love her'n too!
