Blog Hop & Follow Friday (16)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. This week's question is: It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

So my weird habits... hmm... I'm perfect, so I have no weird habits. I can't think of any bad habits that I have, so I'm going to make a list of all the awesome things that I do.

1. I chew gum like a cow. It's an awesome calorie burning activity!

2. I'm a part-time Chia Pet. I have a student that is constantly petting my hair. He's in distress because I cut 10 inches off a few months ago to donate to Locks for Love.

3. If something is really funny, I snort. My husband thinks it's sexy.  

4. I say, "Oh, good grief!" way too much. I say it at least 100 times a day. My students think it's hilarious.

5. Oh, and I put mustard on my french fries.

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books. This week's question is: "If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"

I really have no idea which fictional world I would want to live in. I'm on this major mermaid kick right now, so I'm thinking I would pick being a mermaid from Lost Voices. I wouldn't want any of the horrible things to have happened to me-- and I definitely wouldn't want to be in conflict with the other mermaids-- but I want fins. I think that would be awesome. Of course, being a fairy would be cool too. Flying seems like an awesome adventure. So maybe a fairy from Brigitta and the White Forest?

Gosh, I wish I'd thought of that for my answer. I've always wanted to be a mermaid too!

Hey! I'm following now! When in doubt, there's a follow link on the top bar of any blogspot blog and that does the same thing. :) Namaste, Rhi

I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected –

Hopping through. I used to chew gum constantly. Then they discontinued my fav flavor. Now I don't chew anymore.

New follower from the hops. You are the first one I've seen to suggest 'mermaid' today. My answer is not very original - but you can see it at the link below.

# 2 is so funny! Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Feature and Follow Friday blog hop (finishing from last night!). Would love a follow back: I also have twitter: @wlbks. Have a 'good read' weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I LOVED your comment. Following you now!! I snort too when I laugh, it's something that came on later in life, not sure why. Pretty sure my husband doesn't think it's sexy though, haha. And I've ALWAYS thought it would be cool to be a mermaid. Especially when I was little and The Little Mermaid came out, I would pretend I was a mermaid in the bathtub or in the pool.

Great list :D

Oh, and to answer your question about the Lipstick Laws:
I'm actually not that far in (way too preoccupied with renovating my apartment) so I've only read 50 pages or so. It's great so far, though. Haven't read contemporary in ages, so it's really refreshing ^^

I say "oh good lord" all the time especially at work when people tend to do stupid things.
