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. : )

    Happy Friday. (here's my ff)

  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!

    Thanks for the follow!

  9. Great answer! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  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. :)

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

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. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.

Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
