Peepshi? I don't think so.

RIGHT. Making sushi out of Peeps®. It looks so easy. The end result looks so cool. Aren't they just the cutest things ever??? Makes you want to run out to buy a boatload of Peeps and get started this afternoon.

WRONG. Ask ANYONE in TAC and he or she will set you straight. Peeps are the most uncooperative crafting material ever. EVER. Did I mention ever? Literally 9 months later, they were still squishy and not dried out from our epic fail to enter a diorama into the Washington Post's annual Peep Show contest last year. Just back away from the Peeps with your X-acto blade in the air and no one gets hurt.

Fine. You want to live dangerously? Don't  say I didn't warn you. Peepshi directions are here.

The far better way to deal with Peeps is by looking at the winners of the 2016 Peep Show. And bow down to their creators. This year's winner is "A Peep Inside (Out) Donald J. Trump."

Or, better yet, just bite their little heads off and enjoy.

I meant MANGA!!!!!

How incredibly funny. To prove how much I don't read MANGA, the whole last post was about MANGA, not ANIME. I have driven around for the past 36 hours fearing that I had made this mistake. So, even bigger apologies to the MANGA followers out there. Today's apology includes the purchase of Volume 14 and 15 of Blue Exorcist. Please forgive me. (Hangs head in shame.)

Volume 14    Volume 15 

We also have received a donation of The Walking Dead graphic novels, volumes 1-5, from an adult patron who is a kid at heart. As some of you may know, The Walking Dead television series is based on the graphic novel series.


I do appreciate those of you who have dared to participate in the ANIME Series Naming game from the previous post. (Insert eye roll and smiley face here.) 

Peace out, Butterscouts.

What is your Anime Series Title???

Okay. True confessions. I do not read Anime. It's not my thing. Maybe it is the whole reading back to front concept? Maybe it is just too many characters to keep track of? Maybe it is that whole alternate universe thing? Maybe it is all those overly big eyes? Whatever the case, I just don't read it. I try like heck to buy some titles now and then when my informants clue me in, but, I admit, it isn't always on my radar.

So, as my apology to the Anime fans out there, I am sharing this funny Anime Series Title generator that was posted today on Baker & Taylor's website. THIS I understand. And find funny. Give it a whirl and share YOUR Anime Series Title.
