A package and a Book

Today there was a package for my owner that was send to her by a good friend.
It was supposed to be for Christmas, but because of all the snow last week, all mail was a bit later, but getting packages is always fun! Me and Schmorg helped unpack it as Schmorg thought it might be chocolate and I was just curious.

There were two presents inside that were for my owner and her OH and one present that was just for my owner.

It turned out to be cookies and a really cool hippo pen!
Schmorg was a bit disappointed it wasn't chocolate, but I think the cookies look yummie. I hope my owner and her OH will share with us.

This afternoon my owner and me went into town and it was really crowded in all the stores.
My owner bought this book: 'Writing a Bestseller for Dummies', as she's busy writing on a story again at the moment. I must say I read a bit of the story and there's no pigs or zombies in it, so she can definately use this book to improve her story, because what book about writing bestsellers wouldn't give the advice to put pigs and zombies into every story you write.

I think pigs and zombies are fine ideas to put in bestsellers. My mom works at a bookstore that sells a book called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It has regency ladies and zombies. (Mom loves the original book and does not approve of the knock-off though.)

Your presents look very nice. Mom likes the hippos!

Maybe you shouldn't tell your Mom that I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and really liked it. But then again: put a zombie in any book and I think it's a good idea.
And my owner loves hippos! This house is full of them and sometimes I feel like living in some kind of hippo sanctuary.

Nice package! I hope your owner gets a lot of good ideas from the book for dummies. If she does, please let us know. G. wants to write a book for a long time already but doesn't know how to begin...

The farm was quiet that morning as Elliot Zane awoke. He didn't know for sure what might be wrong, but the hairs along his arms seem to rise as though a storm might be coming.

"The pigs seem awfully quiet," remarked Emma Zane. She remained a lump in the bed, her voice still thick with sleep.

"Too quiet."

He remembered the incident last summer when one by one the oinkers lapsed into a coma state during the day only to menace the rest of the farmyard by night.

I'm sorry...I'll stop...don't know what got into me here..pigs and zombies, pigs and vampires, it begs a whole new subgenre.

Don't stop for my sake, I love a good zombie/pig story and this one starts promising.
