Prompt 1. Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page and share two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
“The hair whipped through her hair and blouse, making her feel like a teenager in a speeding convertible. Hoping that nobody below was taking note of the varicose veins in her legs, she called out “whooooooo!” into the rushing air, letting the folds of her silk top shift so that they exposed a piece of lace bra.”
– From p. 27 of The Embers by Hyatt Bass (this is from my Advanced Reading Copy — the book is being released in July in case you go looking for it and wonder why I have it already — ahhhh…the lovely perks of having a book blog!)
Prompt 2. What do you aspire to be?
I aspire to be funny, thin, well-read, and loving.
Prompt 3. Share a piece of unsolicited parenting advice...only I’m soliciting it.
Do whatever it takes to get your kids to fall asleep on their own early in life.
Prompt 4. Tell us about your blogline…how long have you been blogging, when did you start, what were/are your goals for your blog, etc.
My very first blog post was November 5, 2008. The title of the post “Why Blog?” and listed my reasons for starting a blog. But it basically came down to the fact that I needed a creative outlet because I felt my brain was turning to mush as a stay-at-home mom. Now my blogging goals are nothing short of world domination and a six-figure income.
5. If you had 5000 dollars to give away or donate to a charity…explain what you would do with it and why.
I would donate to The Human Fund 2… Money for People. I am both the director and sole recipient of the donations.
1 Dedicated readers who hang on my every word (don’t laugh…there may be one or two) might remember my post about how much I wanted Guitar Hero after playing it in South Dakota with my brother and sister-in-law. I vowed to become a Guitar Hero superstar. I planned to ask for it for my birthday but we went to Atlantic City last night and won $300 (woo hoo!) and so Mr. Jenners is getting it for me now! Aren’t I spoiled and lucky? Yes…I am. I know it!
2 Yes…this is a nod to Seinfeld — greatest TV show ever!
