Funny Friday Photos

Hello and Happy Friday! This week has been filled with work, sick little ones, and trying to get a handle on what a self-publisher does for promotion. The current buzz is street teams, book bloggers and reviewers, for those of you who may be wondering. Should I do a post next Tuesday on what I've learned? Anyone interested? 

Tonight I was looking for Amazon reviewers to request a review of Finding Meara, and stumbled upon a thread on the forum about a high ranking Amazon reviewer who is selling his reviews on his personal website. I didn't search to find the website to see if it was true, but I think someone else did verify the threads poster's claim. Between that, and the similarities between agents in traditional publishing and book bloggers in self-publishing--well, it's all kind of wearying. Since I'm not very good at requesting help and submitting my work to quality-measurers, I'm going to have to suck it up big time, or promotion isn't going to go well at all. I won't be buying any reviews, though. Promise!

On a positive note, Amazon has now promoted Finding Meara twice for me. I don't know how on the earth they are choosing my book to put in their "if you like Fantasy, you might like this..." e-mails. It's not like my sales are skyrocketing or I'm getting a zillion reviews. I'm glad they are though, because it's the only thing close to "real" marketing I've got going for me.

Let's see... Last week's funniest photo was:

And here are this week's photos!

So, how bad is it that these birds remind me of my great-aunt and grandmother?

My eldest gets the same expression when someone scratches his back.

I am obsessive about checking and double-checking before I send an e-mail for this very reason.

There you have it! I really can't decide. I have quite a tie going on between Carl, and the Bear Rug Cat. Don't make me choose!

Did you have a clear favorite, or did you have a tie this week?

Happy Friday! I hope the week has treated you well! A big welcome to Kayla Curry. Thanks so much for hanging out with us!

Where I live, we have had all of winter in the last two weeks with more snow forecast for Sunday. Out of the last ten work days, I've missed five due to the weather (so far.) All the moisture is great for our drought, but I'm so ready for rain! No more snow!

I'd like to invite you all to my first Where In the World Is Meara Rosen? game. It might also be the last (contingent upon event attendance), but it seemed fun enough to give it a try. On Facebook I've created an event which has a picture attached (click here to go to the event page.) On the page, write in the comments the location of the picture to be entered in the drawing for a $15.00 Amazon gift card. If you share the event and any of your friends come to play (and tell me they came because of your invite - very important), you'll get an extra entry. The game ends on April 20th at midnight, and I'll announce the winner of the gift card on April 21st. That's it! Very easy and you could be fifteen Amazon dollars richer on Sunday!

I think last weeks funniest photo is:

I know I've picked some good ones when there isn't a clear winner! Let's see what we've got for this week!

It looks like a furry toddler!

I've had this image in my mind from the day I heard the expression.

My favorite is the cat who needs its legs shaved. 
Which is yours?

Tomorrow is Friday, but it's only the second day of work for me! The snow storm kept me home two of the three days. I must say, working two days a week would be heaven. The cut in pay? Not so much. Guess I'm stuck for a while longer.

I am finding myself to be in a weird limbo with writing, since releasing Finding Meara. Is this normal, I am wondering? (Yoda! I'm channeling Yoda!) Seriously, though, I can't seem to get myself organized. I have all this time, and I spend it messing around on Facebook. I think about writing on the second book (which I have a rough outline already planned) and I feel Resistance with a capital "R." Maybe I should read the War of Art again. The thing is, it feels like a huge empty space in my head. I don't really feel anything - not fear, not anxiety. It's just nothing. Very, very weird. Anyone else ever experience something like this?

Well, instead of worrying about my lack of productivity, (if you were...), lets get a laugh on! Last week's funniest photo was:

And now some new photos for your funny-bone's enjoyment!

If you look a little further down, I like "Fever 102, Wheezing, Irritable."
Is the person irritable or the symptom?

My favorite this week is the WTF is wrong with my legs. Once I figured it out, I couldn't stop laughing!

Did you have a favorite?

Bad news at my house.  The Robin Eggs are all gone. They went fast, too. Kind of like the week! Returned to work, and then kazam! it's Friday.

My friend, David Walker, is being kind to me this weekend and is sharing Finding Meara on his blog, as well as the special he is having for his first novella, Fancy, this weekend. David is an inspirational writer of the Christian kind, and if you are interested in checking his blog and story out, just click here.

Let's go ahead and move on to the pictures for this week. I had trouble finding enough animals, so I threw in some other non-animal funnies.

Last week's winner was:

And now here's the new ones! 

Why on earth would anyone do this?

My favorite today is the owl, just for the cute factor. Otherwise, the dog with its head stuck cracks me up.

Do you like any photo more than the others?
