Episode 49 - Love Overboard OR Ivan Takes a Wife by Janet Evanovich

Yooooo, it's a pre-Plum Janet Evanovich!  It's got capers and slapstick and... business!  Ivan is a schooner captain.  Stephanie is an ex-cop, now cute bread and breakfast owner!  Tess is maybe a ghost!  It's got no major trigger warnings beyond what you'd expect for this sort of madcap comedy business - gggggghosts, cold-ass Maine water, possibly a lie about a shower?, a whole ass town gaslighting this poor woman, bad cooking!  I don't want to give anything away but if you're okay with "screwball" including that gaslighting business this is harmless.

Episode 29 - The Boyfriend


Monstrous teenagers and teenage monsters!  Thrill as mean teenagers fake deaths, fake zombiefication, fake other deaths, and then can't figure out why nobody likes them!  Chill as everybody has a silly expensive car but no moral compass whatsoever!  It's 2 AM, do your children know how to close and lock a window?

Joanna is a stuck up bitch.  Her boyfriend Dex is an insane gaslighting.... secret prosthetic makeup expert?  When Dex falls off a cliff and dies, Joanna keeps seeing him around, like, at the mall.  Is Dex dead?  Is Dex alive?  Are all of these people awful humans anyway?  It's The Boyfriend by RL Stine!

I chose this as one of my 4 for 40 books partly to complement Courtney's choice of Fear Street: First Date and partly to revisit this book I got off a paperback spinner rack at a library when I was a kid even then reading way more grownup horror books to try to figure out why exactly I found it a little scary?

So this is part of the Point Horror series, a 90's attempt by Scholastic to capture the nascent YA segment with authors like RL Stine and Christopher Pike writing for a slightly older audience than the Goosebumps crowd.  I already thought I was way too old for this stuff (I missed Goosebumps by a few years), but for some reason I did pick this one up.  Oddly it looks like the series published all the way to 2014?   And there are a ton of them.  It's kind of unique in that most of these teen horror series I'm aware of are single-author, but this is more of an... imprint, honestly, than a series.  Although evidently there's a Stine one about a babysitter in peril and he wrote three sequels about the world's unluckiest babysitter and maybe we should read all of those one of these days because that sounds dumb as fuck, y'all!

Sadly I didn't look at what bloggers are doing about this series before we recorded, otherwise I would have noted the excellent theory espoused here that Joanna's dad upped stakes and left with a redhead and didn't even call on her birthday and her mom got a lot of money because he died and this is the insurance policy. Perhaps under suspicious circumstances!

  1. From my previous experience its not that easy to get back a lost it stolen bitcoin because these scammers are very smart and they will cover their tracks but if you manage to find a trustworthy and reliable Recovery company, I said trustworthy and reliable because many scammers are out there disguising as Recovery agents and will only take your money without recovering your bitcoin, I was a victim of such myself after loosing my bitcoin to an investment scam I sort for help and I met few recovery agents and was scammed by a particular one again. Luckily for me I was referred to a company on telegram. You can send a complaint mail to recoverywealthnow360 on google mail, he should be able to help you. They Recovered my stolen bitcoin after risking a token to their Recovery program. It was worth it at the end.

  8. I was having real life problems when my friend recommended JOHNHACKER498@GMAIL.COM to me. I contacted them because my business partner was shaking me, stealing money from the business and also my spouse was always up at odd hours clearly been cheating on me, so the JOHN HACKER remotely hacked into their devices and granted me total access to their devices without their knowledge. I was overwhelmed that i could see their hidden finances that were off records and read their texts see new and deleted pictures emails call logs, Facebook, WhatsApp Snapchat, emails and all that. Now it’s not just suspicion I have facts and evidences against them. I recommend JOHNHACKER498@GMAIL.COM to everyone reading this post.

    This is The Global KOS hacking agency where every request concerning lost funds or hacking related issues are fixed within a short period of time.
    The crucial benefit of contacting The Global-KOS hackers is
    • ZERO TRACE: After a successful hack recovery is carried out by the Global-KOS, no active or passive attacks will be used to trace any of our hacks to our clients or our organization. One common practice that attackers employ to evade detection is to break into poorly secured systems and use those hijacked systems as proxies through which they can launch and route attacks. So in a nutshell, attackers effort on this platform are useless because our systems are protected with a vigorous firewall switching and a firm security system to prevent unauthorized bodies from tracking or modifying our network accessible resources. I.e the hacker and clients are 100% safe and anonymous.
    Secondly,
    CHALLENGES WE HACKERS FACE:
    • REPEAT CLIENTS and SERVICES: E.g, after helping a client recover all money lost to fraudulent practices, most of this clients come back requesting we provide the same service in disguise as a different person.
    ⚠Note:
    Repeatedly recovering money from a fraudulent source to the same client are not allowed on this platform.
    However, you will be assigned to a designated professional hacker who is systematically known for operating on a dark web protocol. The operation of these hackers is to potentially deploy a distinguished cyber security technique to retrieving back the victims stolen funds via the application of a diverse CM breacher which enables you to track the data location of a scammer and extract every data on the con database. This is achieved using the systematic courier tracking method.
