It’s Friday and I haz happy. I want to sleep in tomorrow, eat Lucky Charms for lunch and stay in my pajamas all day. It won’t happen but a girl can fantasize right? Speaking of fantasies, the following makes me LOL.
Man Pays Credit Card Bill With Thousands Of Pennies. This is the kind of think I fantasize about. What, you thought since I read dirty, sexy books I’d have erotic fantasies about being ravished by lusty werewolves? Nope, not me. I like to think about sticking it to The Man by paying my bills with pennies. I’m not petty really. But this dude in San Diego really cracked me up. He really showed his bank, and got a little publicity for his business as well by paying his credit card bill of $6,500 in pennies. *snerk*
You must follow @MrFarty on twitter. My inner 12 year old boy says so. Just look at this FABULOUS avatar. Do it dammit!
Jennifer Lawrence Confirmed for The Hunger Games. I just can’t see it but then again I can never envision the book-to-movie crossover until it happens. I’m usually disappointed in the movie if I’ve read the book first which is why I generally skip the movie. But as I was reading the Hunger Games trilogy I kept thinking that the story would make a great movie so I will be checking this one out on the big screen.
What the hubs likes this week
The hubs faithfully reads Random Friday every week and he’s begun sending links and things he thinks might fit in on Random Friday. So, I decided to give him his own space on the RF post. (no pressure hubs). Here’s what he likes this week:
AppleBitch.com Although we’re PC users, we’re still a fan of Apple with our iPhones, and iPods. (iTunes sucks big ass by the way) We’ve ordered an iPad 2 to share. (I know, share? We’re going to give it a go). So the hubs has been doing some searching around on the internet on all things Apple since we have to wait until April for our new iPad. He found AppleBitch.com and says it’s worth checking out. They do critical news and analysis on all things Apple. I check it out because hubs said should, and I like.
Hubs also likes this:
The worlds largest gummy worm. “Like a regular gummy worm, only 128 times awesomer.”
I’m not even going to analyse this hubs. It’s too easy.
Thank you hubs. *nods head*
What’s going on at Fiction Vixen:
Catherine and I read Talk Me Down by Victoria and Dahl recently and we’re chatting about it HERE. What a fun, sexy read. Check it out.
Win Treasure Me by Robyn DeHart
Hurry! Ends today!!
What I’m reading:
I’m reading the second book in the Tumble Creek series Start Me Up by Victoria Dahl. So far, I’m loving the hero. Quinn is a nerd with a super sexy best that emerges in alleys behind Spanish restaurants. It’s sexy trust. Not sordid at all.
I also just started Secrets of a Proper Countess by Lecia Cornwall. We’re off to a shaky start. Hero and heroine do the dirty deed by the second chapter and heroine is immediately mortified and runs away (after the orgasm of course). This annoys me, but I’ll keep going. It’s still early.
On a serious note, many of you may know that Fatin (@mad4rombks) lost her husband in a senseless act of violence recently. The romance community is stepping up to do what they can to help and Operation Auction has been set up to raise money for the family. Here is what they say:
Fatin has been an integral part of the romance community for years – she owns and runs the RR@H Novel Thoughts and Book Talk blog, is an administrator of the WriteMinded loop, an author assistant and a tireless advocate for romance novels. She is also a friend to many in this community.
On Tuesday, March 8th, she lost her husband in a senseless act of violence, leaving her alone with four children. You can read more about the tragedy here:http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/9233067/
The romance community would like to rally around her. Therefore, we will be holding auctions on ebay the last week of March.
Authors, bloggers and industry professionals are offering up amazing auction items for bidding. If you prefer, you can also make a cash donation. Stop by and take a look at the items being offer for auction and book mark the site and check back for information.
And finally, it’s time for the Friday Llama Love. I’m featuring this guy because he looks like he needs love. He looks like he’s had a bad week. So come on llama lovers, give him a hug and a smooch. Don’t be shy now.
Have a fabulous weekend peeps!
