bonkers, people.

yesterday abby at librarything informed me that YES, OMG, MARY ROACH HAS A NEW BOOK OUT. AND IT'S ABOUT SEX.

those are my exclamations, not hers - she told me about the book, knowing that it was the kind of thing that would get me all bubbly and forgetful and fainty. because i loooove mary roach, author of Stiff: The Secret Lives of Human Cadavers and Spook: Science Tackles The Afterlife. honestly, how could she possibly write about more interesting things? i would trample people just to get her autograph; if she writes a book on gross natural history i'll just keel over. perhaps she could make out with natalie angier and they could adopt me as their lesbian lovechild?

sex, death, and the afterlife = scorpiosity, i think. and what else is there, really? aside from chocolate. have a shameless amazon link while you mull that one over.

Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, by Mary Roach!

here is the link to mary roach's website, but be warned - they do make a literal play on her last name. {shudder}
