Funny Friday Photos: Twisted Traps

Happy Friday!!

I hope everyone had a good week. I'm not sure where it went. I've noticed when I try to get things done around the house, not much writing gets done. And when I write, not much around the house gets done. And on days like today, nothing got done, and I don't know why.

This week I've got some writing news to share. I've started my "blurb" for Through the Fairy Ring, so I can get a cover made and start pre-orders, should anyone want to do such a thing.

Amazon caught up to the fact that Finding Meara was free and reduced the price to nothing. During mid-week it was fun to see it shoot up the free charts for a bit. It's free through the weekend (I'll mark them all up on Monday) so if you want to see if it really is a fast-paced, fun and mildly romantic adventure, you can still do so at no risk to your wallet! Click the cover in the sidebar at the right to order it.

(Quick note: I checked the UK Amazon and it's still .99--as are other non-US markets--but I was excited to see that people have bought it. Right now I actually have a ranking above 50,000! That's fantastic - thanks to whoever bought the book!)

This week I posted the second story from the Build-a-Story game, with the story starters of "Hazel, singing, Adven, love" chosen by Kathy Schwab. It's called The Singing Oracle, and click here if you want to read it!

Thank you so much, Suzi Retzlaff, Lexa Cain, LG Smith and Veronica Roth for commenting last week (and the birthday wishes!) No clear winner for favorite photo this week, so we'll move on to the new funnies.

I have waaaay too many accounts like this.

Oh, the everyday conundrums.


Since Boy 1 started learning to play the cello, I've learned enough that this is funny to me.
(Pizzicato means to play by plucking the strings. Right now it's the only way Boy 1 is playing.)

My favorite is the trapped Kermit. It's so wrong it's really funny. Or I'm just that warped.

Funny Friday Photos: Bumping Belugas and Grinning Guinea Pigs

Now that I have your attention, I'll say:

Happy Friday!

I've finished with reverse outlining Through the Fairy Ring, and have started cleaning up notes and rewriting the parts that need rewritten. I feel better about the ending. I was worried, but reading it in context with the rest of the book, it actually seems like a pretty good one.

Oh! This weekend is my birthday weekend, and for fun I marked down Finding Meara. It's free on Barnes and Noble, i-tunes and Kobo, and only .99 on Amazon. I wanted to go free there, but they wouldn't let me. I'm hoping maybe the bots will notice it free on the other channels, and then mark it down. Anyway, if you want to check out the book, this might be the weekend/week to do so.

Last week's funniest photo was:

Here's some new photos for you!

It took me a moment.

I found this on Pinterest, but couldn't trace it back to the original posting, so I'm hoping it's okay to have shared it.

More like a slug, actually.

It's important to have fun at work.


I may have shared this before, but it's so cute it doesn't hurt to share again.

All righty! I hope you all have a great, fun, relaxing weekend.

My favorite is Grinny Pig. The pun is so perfect.

Funny Friday Photos: Sexy Pugs

Happy early Friday!

I actually finished the post early, so I decided to go ahead and publish it, instead of waiting for Friday.

This week I found my new musical obsession! This really is me:

Boy 1 started cello lessons last week, and Boy 2 started piano lessons this week. I searched for cello music in Spotify to try to show Boy 1 how beautiful the cello is and what it sounds like. I found all that and more in a cello group (are two people a group?) called 2CELLOS. Has anyone heard of them?

If you haven't, watch the video below, to the end. It was hard to choose a video to introduce them to you, because I like so many (Celloverse!). Several of the songs I put on my Adven/Realm playlist in Spotify, because they feel like the Realm to me. I shared the one below (Trooper Overture) because it clearly shows the connection of classical instruments with rock music, and that's how I see the connection between the Realm and Adven.

They play a cover of Michael Jackson's They Don't Care About Us, and the push and pull of the music matches the theme of Through the Fairy Ring, where Hazel is caught between Fairy and Pixie politics. The inspiration for the story came from the last presidential race, after all.

The last is Benedictus, which I believe they wrote, and reminds me of a specific scene in Through the Fairy Ring between Hazel and her children. So, I hope you enjoy the video. If you get lured away, be sure to come back and tell me what you think!

Last week's winner for funniest video was (overwhelmingly):

On to the new photos!

Just covering all bases.

That is truly animal cruelty!!

A scene from a bad horror film!

Just looking at it makes me uncomfortable.

She becomes middle-aged Barbie.


The sexy pug wins it for me. He reminds me of a student I had a few years ago. He wore polo shirts like that and he thought he was all that and more. The pug's smug expression matches his perfectly.
