Tell me what you think? Lmao. Hope it doesn’t offend anyone. Lol.
Odyssey in a Teacup
Encounters with a pair of supersized Y-fronts; a humourless schoolmarm with an unfortunate name and monstrous yellow incisors; and a tut-tutting, big-breasted, modern-day gorgon are the norm for Ruth Roth. She’s used to crazy.
Her mum squawks like a harpy and her dad has a dodgy moral compass. Add in daily face-offs with a relentlessly bitchy mirror, and Ruth’s home life feels like a Greek tragicomedy.
She hankers for the ordinary. But blah is not a good fit for someone who doesn’t fit in. And isn’t meant to.
Ruth’s vanilla existence is an issue for her besties—her hot-looking, obsessive-compulsive cousin and soul mate (who needs to do everything twice-twice), and her two closest girlfriends.
With their encouragement and a good homoeopathic dose of ancient mythology, Ruth embarks on an odyssey to retrieve her spirit. She’s confronted with her biggest challenge ever, though, when one of these friends sends her spiralling back into a dark place.
The decision she must make can either bring her out or launch the mother of all wars in her world.
This book was utterly magical! It was just what the doctor ordered and I’m so glad I obliged.😊 I believe books have power and this novel was so powerful because the amount of smiles and the amount of laughter it produced! I have been so stressed with my upcoming eviction and to be honest this story was the perfect escape.
It transported me to a magical place that made me feel free and actually happy! I wasn’t having constant panic and going cuckoo figuring out what to do with life because this book to me a place of laughter that made my heart full. If this book isn’t magic than I don’t know what is then.😉
I loved the characters and I thought the world building and plot was phenomal. I really have no complaints with this story besides the fact that I’ve already finished it.😕 You know you love a book when you intentionally slow down your reading pace just so you can enjoy it longer! I am looking forward to rereading it in the future and I can’t wait to see what the author comes out with next! If you are looking for a good read, I highly recommend Odyssey in a Teacup by Paula Houseman. Hands down, a must read 5 star book!
Author Bio – Paula Houseman was once a graphic designer. But when the temptation to include ‘the finger’ as part of a logo for a forward-moving women’s company proved too much, she knew it was time to give away design. Instead, she took up writing.
She found she was a natural with the double entendres (God knows she’d been in enough trouble as a child for dirty wordplay).
As a published writer of earthy chick lit and romantic comedy, Paula gets to bend, twist, stretch and juice up universal experiences to shape reality the way she wants it, even if it is only in books. But at the same time, she can make it more real, so that her readers feel part of the sisterhood. Or brotherhood (realness has nothing to do with gender).
Through her books, Paula also wants to help the reader escape into life and love’s comic relief. And who doesn’t need to sometimes?
Her style is a tad Monty Pythonesque because she adores satire. It helps defuse all those gaffes and thoughts that no one is too proud of.
Paula lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband. No other creatures. The kids have flown the nest and the dogs are long gone.

Anywho.. I picked the song I am featuring for 2 other reasons than it was stuck in my head. The first reason is this song reminds me of the good times of my childhood with my dad and me singing this song @ 7 years old and how I even was part of this beauty contest, I guess pageant kind of thing(his way of trying to make me a lady) and can still remember his face when I came on stage singing this song but only a short moment before I got kicked off. Too bad. It was a mess but moments like that with my dad even though they were rare were the only things I could look back on my childhood. So in light of Father’s Day this song is for being my dad’s little lady.
The other reason was because when I got older this genre was all I listened to and this song bring me back to the days of some wild times to say the least!😉❤
Hope you guys have a great Monday and hope all of you Fathers out there had an amazing day!!! You rock and deserve it!😍❤
Hello there, Lovelies! Earlier I posted a post and decided it was too much gloom and doom
and it might mess up my swagger. So I decided to take that shit down.
I mean life happens, we all live and have to push through some rough
ass times. Well I tell life to fuck off put things to a hault for a while so I can get my shit priorities together. I mean I am a fucking mama jamma badass! I mean shit sometimes you have to look at the storm arising around you and dance to the beat of your own drum. Lately, I have dealt with health issues, financial issues, thiefs and a sick loved one and child but I can’t look at that side of things. Fuck no! I have been blessed with a month to eat and had my meds for a month, I have been shown kindness that I never thought possible and even came close to a suicide attempt and pushed myself through. All in all, there is a badass in me and a boss lady who needs to erupt! I am so glad that I am back in the blogosphere kicking ass and taking names! You giys are the bee’s knees and can’t wait to read all of your blogs. Woot!
So I am sorry about my recent abscense. WordPress called me a spammer due to having “blog tour” in my title. 😒 I mean take away my bloggy blog for 2 or 3 days because of a title of a page. Dumb.🤨
So after fighting with them
jackasses , I will be more cautious of my titles so I won’t be labled as a spammer along with those people in my spam comments that have been promising me a cure for erectile dysfunction.😨 I mean that would truly be a downer!🤣😂
Not to diss anyone who needs a little a pick me up. This is a natural thing and sometimes the heads don’t work as one. It’s like the there is a disturbance in the force. I mean we all have force disturbances whether it be E.D. or constipation. Tomato, To-MAT-toe. I don’t know how we got to erectile dysfunction and constipation from WordPress but sometimes you have to go with the flow.
With constipation, any type of flow would be beneficial.
So this whole ramble was meant to say sorry for the Debbie Downer episode
(everytime I hear the word downer I think of E.D., 🤣) and wanted to explain my abscense. I would also like to ask you folks, do you you like my new theme? Most importantly, it’s not about looks, is it easy to access? 😉I got my theme courtesy of the not so happy “Happiness Engineers” and their assholeness unkind comments. I also got some new graphics from an awesome online friend as an early 30th 21st birthday gift that is doomed to happen next month. What do you think of the graphics? Try and erase the part of Dani aging out of your minds! I even have some white hairs to show me how young I am! Woohoo! Anywho, I completely jumped around all over the place which reminds me of Pete’s Significant Songs Post featuring House of Pain- Jump Around so I am going with it and will be dancing around to this song shaking what my mama gave me early this Thursday Morning. I hope you guys have an awesome day! You fuckin’ rock!!!🤩😜🧚♂️
So since I have been having some bad
shitty months I figured to look at the brightside with some “Well Shit” moments others have experienced! Woot!
Happy Easter lovelies! You guys are the BEST and I am so thankful to celevrate another holiday as a member of the badass blogosphere. Hope you like my Easter edition if shits n giggles!😁🐰🐣🐇🐥
