Outlandish!

Oh, for fuck’s sake. Just received a Christmas gift from “one of my friends”...



Honestly... GAAAAAAHH!!!!! *shudder* And it’s humongous!

Gotta say though, I think this... The Outlandish Companion (outlandish indeed!) is the perfect evah gift for Outlander fans. (I ken there are a lot o ye out der—admit it!—ye Fraser lovers!!!) So if you’re not yet finish with your Christmas shopping and have a friend or family member who’s chokingly uber gaga over Jamie and her adulteress bonnie lassie, you might want to consider this, er, amazing *cough* companion guide.

Och nay, really, it has all the wee treasures(?) Outlander aficionados would drool for: synopsis of all the books in the series, complete characters’ list, family tree, horoscopes (huh? *trying to stifle laughter* heh :P), comprehensive glossary, fully explicated “Gabaldon Theory of Time Travel.” (WTF? LOL!) There are also FAQs, biblios, tips, personal stories, all about the author’s research and much more! Hmm... how come The Bronze Horseman and Harry Potter don’t have this kind of crap? :/

Anyway, are you guys finish with your Christmas shopping? Cripes, I’m not done yet, I’m not done yet!!!

P.S. I think Gabaldon looks verra cute on the back cover. *g*
P.P.S. I CANNOT BELIEVE I’m sorta plugging this bloody book!—oh, for the love of god!

So you guys know a lot about books? What do you think of "Why Men Love Bitches" if you've ever read it. I really am interested in that book. Let me know! :)

LOL, Harlot! Doesn't your friend know how much you dislike OUTLANDER? Unless this is her idea of a joke. LOL.

Oh yes, I'm done with my Christmas shopping! WOO-HOOO!!!! I'd already experienced panicking last year when I kept postponing getting my mom a gift. What a nightmare that was!

YEAH!! I finished my shopping today with a flourish! I do believe this is the earliest I have ever been DONE!!

I think a raffle on that little "treasure" is a great idea... if you're willing to part with it, that is!!

You could re-gift it. I've yet to try any of Gabaldon's books. I keep hearing too many differing views.

Don't ask me if I'm done with my shoppping. The thought is stressing me out!
