Follow Friday (18)

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop meme that is hosted by Parajunkee's View. Each week a new blogger is featured, so the rest of the world can get to know people behind the names.  

This week's question comes from Backseat Reader: What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)

Muhahahaha... I had to get that out of my system. Such a funny question.

I've never thought about preparing for the zombie apocalypse, even though the CDC did post something about how to prepare for a zombie invasion. You can see for yourself here. As for me, being prepared wouldn't matter much for me because I move like a geriatrics patient. I'm from the South-- we don't get in a hurry. I'd be one of the first taken out. Although, I could use some of my secret Super Ninja moves to ward off a few rogue zombies... depends on how much coffee I have before the attack. The root of my action plan is to buy lots of bandaids and a new zombie-friendly recipe book.

As for Mel Gibson, let's not think about that. Zombies are scary enough. Maybe he's a zombie? (Sorry Mel! I loved you back in the day, but you've gone over the deep end with Charlie... so we can't be cool anymore.)


  1. I didn't know the CDC posted about zombies! V. Cool!! Thanks for the link, and nice post. : )

  3. Hi there, new follower here! Love your blog! :)

  4. Hi!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog AND Design/Photography page. The kind compliments mean a lot! I'm still putting it all together and trying to make it work!

    Have a good weekend,

  5. As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  10. hi--found you indirectly through a hop when visiting BookBelle's site and I liked your comments there. I guess that means I cyberstalked your blog, but please don't hold that against me. I'm also from the South and thus would need a rather large provocation to move swiftly.

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. I was startled awake this morning by your blog title but then realized it was "flashlight" with an "a" and not an "e". That would have been too weird even for me. :)

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 

This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
