Fantabulous Friday

I know, I know. It's been a while since my last blog post but my mid-year resolution is to do more blogging and possibly vlogging (You'll enjoy this, I'm spectacularly awkward on camera.) So, I declare my intentions to blog twice a week: Writerly Wednesday (if you're a writer, you'll want to tune in) and Fantabulous Friday.

 Fantabulous Friday simply consists of a roundup of things I thought were funny/interesting/weird/cray cray. It's like blog vomit, basically. And I'll update a few things about what I did during the week, because I don't live the life of a normal person. You know writers aren't people right? We're villages of people. So we do things out of the norm all the freaking time.

So, here is my roundup for Fantabulous Friday:

1.) An article on The Most Insane Roomate Ads Ever Posted on Craiglist.

2.) One of my good friends, Leigh Bardugo, made the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers list with the third installment of her trilogy Grisha Trilogy, Ruin and Rising. In case you're wondering why that's a big deal, check out what books are on the New York Times Children's Series list. Then send Leigh some you're-a-rockstar flowers. Woot woot!

3.) Monday marked the day I made my yearly quota for having an old person flip me the bird. I took her turn at a 4 way stop and she rewarded me with her knobby middle finger. Trophy for me! Now all middle fingers the rest of the year are just bonuses.

4.) This ecard:

5.) News: I'll be appearing at the Fierce Reads Summer Blockbuster event in Los Angeles, CA on July 23rd with Ann Aguirre, Marissa Meyer, and Leigh Bardugo. Come seeeeeee us! You'll be entertained, I swear by my first born son.*

6.)  This Abandoned Child Scare Prank. Enjoy!

*At this time, I have no sons.


  1. Oh jeez. Those roommate ads reminds me of apt hunting in Boston. "here is a lovely cheap apartment. the only downfall is my husband will be living in your apartment during the day." lol

  2. This post is so great! I've never been flipped off by an old person. You're so lucky!
    That video is hilarious! Definitely forwarding that! Lol! And the roommate ads are just too funny. We could always use a good laugh, right? ^_^

  3. Cheque is an instrument in writing containing an unconditional order, addressed to a banker, sign by the person who has deposited money with the banker, requiring him to pay on demand a certain sum of money only to or to the order of certain person or to the bearer of instrument. Learn More

  4. If you are planning a solar system for your home, be sure to calculate your potential energy production using the amount of sun to expect in the cloudiest month. As winter sunlight is much lower than summer, you will want to be able to plan for higher energy costs in winter. If you generate excess energy during the summer, with the right plan, your utility company will send you a check!

  5. Don't fear failing. Failing is something that many great leaders Ganga Music have done, and it has only spurred them on to greater victories. If you fear failure, you may be afraid to act boldly, which is the only way for a leader to act. If you fail at something, use it to help you change directions.Ganga Bhakti
