Previously on Res Ipsa Etc., we learned that stopping a potential rape is apparently an affirmative defense to stalking, and were appalled. This week, BDBCB4:BS got its first new member in the form of one Docta K – are you excited? We are! (Despite the fact that our loquaciousness quotient went up exponentially . . . that’s, um, not a mathematical exaggeration.) We are less excited to still be reading this book, and somehow still have yet to hit any of the reputedly epic sexytimes as we traverse chapters 5-7. Weirdly enough, by the time you get to the end of this admittedly girthy post, you’ll understand why we think that’s a blessing, not a curse. Strap in, folks, it’s gonna be a drinky ride!

You can get your own cocktail?* I will make it from your favorite base ingredients and name it after you. That’s a decent prize, right? Read the rest of this entry »
Previously on Res Ipsa Etc., we started a terrible book. This week, we continue to blaze an intrepid path through the literary desert, a wilderness of suck, if you will, on everyone’s behalf. Suffering: All the Cool Kids Are Doing It. (No really, they are! Docta K has acquired a copy of 50 Shades of Grey and may be joining us in some future posts! Woot!) Anyway, BDBCB4:BS continues on with chapters 2-4 of what is arguably the worst book either of us have ever read. We snark because we care.
