The Annoyance Trifecta

(originally posted on My Really Real Reality) When I am at home during the week, I usually leave the television on for background noise while I do things around the house.  Because of this habit, it's not uncommon to walk in on Today, The View, Rachel Ray, or some TLC show in mid-program.  Sometimes what is on the screen captures my attention, sometimes not.Today I entered the living room with vacuum cleaner in tow.  And there, on my tv, were Rachael Ray,...more

In fact, I really couldn't find any book bloggers talking about her book. ...more
