TGIF, Blog Hop, FF and weekly round up(all in one post)

Posted 1 April, 2011 by Danny in / 18 Comments

Yay for Fridays!!! The week’s almost over and it’s time for a whole love of Blog Love and Networking!

Let’s start with Jen’s Blog Hop.

Each week there is a new question to answer, which is fun and also helps to get to know each other better. This week’s question is:

Since today is April Fool’s Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?

Great question, Jen!!! I think my favorite prank was for my BFF’s birthday a few years ago. She’s always wanted a surprise party but she’s SO hard to surprise because she knows everything! It’s like she’s omniscient. Wait, she isn’t is she….no, she can’t be. Back to the story!

So her hubz enlisted me to help keep her busy the day of the party and things are going along nicely. We see a movie, we do some shopping. She thinks we’re going out later, so she’s kind of in a hurry to get home and change, but I keep stalling and stalling and she’s putting up with it because she loves me but I can tell her patience is wearing thin. Then I call her hubz and they need another 10 minutes.

Thinking fast, I tell her I need something from the drug store (too TMI to share here) and I beg her to make one more stop. Then I tell her that store doesn’t have it and I need her to go to THREE MORE DRUG STORES! She’s fuming at this point and ready to slaughter me as we get back to her house and she angrily yanks open the door, anticipating a mad dash to get ready when she’s pelted with confetti and cheers of, “Surprise!!!”

Thankfully she forgave me my antics but I must confess even if she hadn’t it was worth it to FINALLY surprise her.

How about you, my little pranksters????

Parajunkee is also running a Follow Friday meme that we love.

This week’s question is from Books-Ahoy of Books-Ahoy:

Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

I think this may be last week’s question, so I’m going to stick to my answers (yup, that’s me, consistent! *wink*):

  1. I have a library in my house. We live in a fairly average sized home, I don’t live in a mansion by any stretch, but when my husband and I bought this house we set a room aside for all of our books. It’s one of my favorite places in the world!
  2. I accidentally outted myself to my MIL as a reader of serious bodice ripping romance novels because I shelved them in the above mentioned library. Let’s just say when she saw them it was an odd moment….
  3. All of my online friends I met because of a book…Twilight. It’s been a magnificent almost three years, ladies, and to you Ms. Meyer…thank you so much for writing something that would make me so obsessed that I would seek out likewise passionate folks on the interwebs!!!
  4. I’ve written four novel-length stories and thrown three of them promptly away. I think I enjoy the process of writing far more than the process of editing. Also, once the story’s done, I fall out of love with my characters. *sad panda* But I may have a novel worth reading in me yet!
  5. I love to re-read a good book. I used to spend my summers re-reading Stephen King books when I was in high school. I read Twilight so many times I’ve lost track. I love, love, love re-reading a good book. I like re-immersing myself into a world where the characters are like my own friends. *sigh*

Finally, we’d love to take the opportunity to welcome all the new faces and the old ones too! *waves* Glad you are here and we hope you like it here at the Bewitched Bookworms.

To get an impression about us, this was what we were up to at the Bookworms last week:

And don’t forget!! If you like audiobooks: hop on over to our Audiobook Challenge for 2011! It’s going to be great fun and a great way to enjoy books even when you can’t have one in your hands. Check it out!!

Now go and get lost…in a book!

Obsessive Reader by Night – Scientist at Day!
You can also find me on goodreads. I’d love to get to know you so, don’t be shy and say Hello!

    At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

    But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

    Highlights include – low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog – http://www.howardsherman.net

    They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

    I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!
