30 Days of Books - Day 22

So how's your weekend been? I spent yesterday shopping for an outfit for opening on Thursday night. HOLY CRAP, THE GALLERY OPENS ON THURSDAY NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!! No matter how many times I say that, I still just can't quite believe it. Anyway, I spent about a bazillion hours walking around the shopping centre yesterday in search of something to wear. I wound up with a purple skirt quite early on in the piece, but then spent about three hours searching in vain for a top to go with it. I never thought I'd say it, but thank God for the Juniors section at Myer! Not only did I get a top, but it was on sale and cost me $12.50. SCORE!

And today has been baking palooza - I made raspberry and chocolate fudge Dalek cupcakes for a farewell at work tomorrow:
Extermicake, extermicake...

Day 22 - Favourite book you own
There's any number of possibilities here, but I'm going with my latest book purchase for this one:

5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (and other useful guides) by Matthew Inman (aka The Oatmeal). If you haven't read an Oatmeal comic before, you should head over there right now. I'll wait. 

I love The Oatmeal. I do a happy dance in my chair every time I see a new comic/quiz/whatever. So when I saw his book at Dymocks the other week, I jumped on it. Sure, I've read most of the contents online, but there's a bunch of new comics that are only in the book. Any page in it makes me crack up laughing, and given that my brain has basically melted out of my ears with the stress and insanity of work the past few weeks, it's nice to have a book to go to where I can just read for two minutes, laugh hysterically, and then put back on the shelf. It's a totally awesome book, and you should all go and buy it. Or at the very least, read this:  How to use a semicolon
