Fast Five Friday is a weekly blog hop created by my blogger buddies Dani Bertrand and Jackie Felger. They co-host the blog Cover Girls together. Its purpose is to connect with writers, readers, viewers, and bloggers.

You may recognize the names, since I also take part in their Express Yourself blog hop.

They love lists, so they do a weekly blog hop where they list things. They provide the topics for each week, with five being the focus .

You’re not required to post every week, AND you can pick which topics you’d like to take part in. Awesome, right? Yeah, I think so too.

Whatever topics you decide to do, please include the link to your Fast Five Friday post in the comments section of their Fast Five Friday post each week, so they can stop by and show their Fast Five Friday love to you!e

The question for today, July 3, is:

List five movies you’ve watched a bazillion times. There are so many, it’s hard to choose just five. Here are five of my top 20, in random order:

  1. Apollo 13
  2. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
  3. Halloween
  4. Pretty Woman
  5. The Shawshank Redemption

That’s my list for this week. What are some of your favorite movies? How can you choose only five? 🙂 Until next time…

Jackie Felger from Bouquet of Books and Dani Bertrand from Entertaining Interests founded this great blog hop that has a great group of people with weekly topics that change every month. They also have a site they co-author together:  Cover Girls.

The topic for the week of June 29-July 3 is:

What’s the greatest prank you ever pulled? Not a prankster, then what’s the best prank you’ve heard about?

Oh man, this one can get me into some serious hot water. It was so long ago who’s gonna remember this foolishness, right? Right???

Back in my Bronx dayz, I threw a little house party at my first apartment. My best friend at the time was staying with me. Our kids were are their respective grandmas’ houses and there was a good mix of people over. Unfortunately, one of the guys drank a little (well, maybe a lot) too much alcohol before it was even midnight and passed out on my sofa.

In my defense, I did NOT do this alone! His best friend removed his sneakers and socks and polished his toenails. My bff did his hair, two dorky pig-tails on top of his head (it was the ’80s people!) and make-up, while I polished his fingernails. Throughout this whole debacle, he didn’t budge. The finishing touch was a cigarette dangling off his fire engine red lips.

We snapped some pix with my friend’s camera and continued to party. He woke up about a half hour later and it took a good few minutes for him to realize what was going on. Our hysterical laughter didn’t help. He was pissed for about a minute, but then got over it. Yup, good times were had that night. 🙂

 Your turn! I know you’ve got a story. Let’s hear it. We’ve all been the prankster or the pranked. I’d love to hear yours. Until next time, enjoy your week!

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.   This image is (c) Disney.

Surprised ya, didn’t I? Always had an interest, but never followed through.  Must be the Captain Jack Sparrow in me. Okay, I know…don’t care. Yeah, I’m a Pirates of the Caribbean fan. What can I say, I’m young at heart.

Wonder if it’s too late to start learning… 😀 Can you imagine the chaos I’d cause? Haha!  :p

 What’s the skill you wish you had? Any possibility you might still pursue it? Until next time!

Jackie Felger from Bouquet of Books and Dani Bertrand from Entertaining Interests founded this great blog hop that has a great group of people with weekly topics that change every month. They also have a site they co-author together:  Cover Girls.

The topic for May 25-29 is: Name a few things you like to eat while writing.

That’s easy – anything. Ha! No, seriously. There are a couple of things I must have when I’m writing:

First and foremost is coffee (I know it’s not food to most people, but it’s one of MY food groups). I recently switched to decaf though; I’m trying to ease up on my stress level. We’ll see if it works.

Second, I must have some snacks by my side . I’ve kept it healthy with either Yoplait Whips, or a Special K low-fat, high-fiber, soft-baked breakfast bar.

When I’m really on a roll and want to treat myself, I’ll cop to having a Reese’s peanut butter cup or two. They’re my favorite.  🙂

What do you snack on when you write? Any energy-boosting ideas you’d care to share? 

 

Express Yourself – ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Hello bloggers! It’s time for Express Yourself, the weekly blog hop that posts different topics and updates monthly. I’ve been out of the loop for a bit, plus the meme was on brief hiatus in April for the A-Z Challenge (whew!).

What the girls would like to know for  the week of May 11-14 is: Now that we’re 1/3 of the way through 2015, what’ve I accomplished so far?

Actually, I’ve accomplished a lot. 🙂

 

  1. I participated and completed my very first A-Z Challenge this year.
  2. I entered a piece in this year’s WRiTE CLUB competition for the second year in a row.
  3. I’ve managed to keep up about 98% of the goals I’ve set for myself since the beginning of the year. Whatever I couldn’t accomplish or fell behind on was mostly due to illness or exhaustion.
  4. Been working on getting My Miracle Life blog to where I want it to be. It should be done by summer’s end.
  5. I completed this year’s round of physical therapy with flying colors!
  6. I’m becoming more socially involved and ‘getting out there’ so I’m not stuck home alone with Sophie all day.
  7. I’m working on a story that continues my WC piece.

What have you accomplished since the New Year began?
