Randomness on my Bloggy Friend

I'm pretty much in a giggly mood today, and pretty sure that everything I post today will make absolutely no sense, but I post anyway. Hopefully, I can get some laughs out of you on this fabulous Friday!

First of all, I went to dinner last night with the lovely, authoress Morgan Shamy. I know you’re all jealous, as you totally should be. The two of us had so much fun. Laughing, talking about writing, and encouraging each other to keep going. Seriously, I want Morgan to be my new best friend. What luck that we live like 15 minutes away from each other.

I have decided that the writing industry is by far the coolest industry ever. I love the bonds of friendship formed here. I love the creative atmosphere. I love how writers are all rooting each other on.

Now, I want to thank all of my new followers for joining my Bloggyworld and Twitterworld. With great surprise, between Saturday and today, I have gone from having 79 blog followers to 127. That is phenomenal. I could not have done it without you! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your love with me. Gracias. Merci. Danke. Arigato. Xie Xie. Grazie. I’m multi-lingual, too! Hehe

Last, this video makes me snarf every time I see it. Enjoy the Homestar Runner Fun! What’s your favorite Homestar Runner clip? Let me know cause I want some more giggles today!


  1. Oh my Gosh!!! Homestar Runner brings back so many funny memories. Back in 2003 (I think...maybe 2002?) one of my sophomores came in during my planning period and told me I had to watch this hilarious video. Of course, it took my computer at the time about 5 minutes to load, but it was well worth the wait! It is one of Strong Bad's responses to a letter by Kyle asking if Strong Bad would write his English paper for him. I never laughed so hard in my life! Here is the url:
    Thank you so much for reminding me of this wonderful (yet, STILL relatively unknown, it seems) website that always provides me with giggles! And congrats on the increase of followers! :)

  2. Eeeek!!!

    Julia, you rock!!!! I absolutely adore you!!!!! We are an awesome author pair! Lol!

  3. Toooooootally gloating just because you can...

    :) Glad dinner went well!

  4. Yep, Jen, I'm gloating but in a very humble manner. hehe. I love Morgan. I should go to Ireland and have dinner with you. That would cost a bit more though.

  5. Ah jees- If you made it across the big pond, I would cover dinner... only fair to keep things even! LOL :)

    Ooh, you have me thinking about dinner now... hungry... mmm- I think I would bring you, and anyone else who fancies jumping the pond, anyone? anyone? - (It is of course compulsory that a certain person whos name sounds like 'flea' attend...) to dinner here:

    Tasty- and their wines are to die for!

  6. The writing community is pretty cool, huh? It's nice to talk to other people who have the same dreams as I do. This is a new experience for me.
