Obsessing Over the Outlander Series

OUTLANDER

Each book is about as thick as the Yellow Pages (physical ones from days gone by) and about the same font size.  It's a challenge to go on about daily life while reading all 9 (soon to be 10?) books, by the amazingly talented and smart smart smart author, Diana Gabaldon.

I'm deep inside book 6 right now. I'm not sure how I'll be able to handle the end of this series.  Readers must have been saying this since the first book came out in 1989 or so...  perhaps this is a never ending story. I'm all for that.

Meet Jamie Alexander Malcolm McKenzie Fraser.  He's actor, Sam Heughan , a real Scot with a deep voice and a Gaelic lilt that will keep you hanging on to every word that drips from his lips. The STARZ television series of the book has been wildly popular.  It's easy to obsess about this main character.

wiseabove with me to a new level:

HEAR YE! O HEAR YE!!
Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no
zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2?
An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory
with a sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.

Makes me feel less crazy that I am also obsessed with the books and the show. I don't think I've ever felt this fanatic about anything ever. It's a little scary.
