Funny Friday Photos

Woohoo! It's Friday! 

Do you have any fun plans this weekend? I think we're going to see the Muppet Movie. We ended up not going to the movies last weekend because Boy 2 got sick.

This week was kind of exciting on the writerly front.

I've entered Finding Meara in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards, and it made it into Round Two. It's just the first step, but being chosen out of 10,000 entries is pretty exciting, none the less. In Round One the book pitch was judged. In Round Two a 3,000 - 5,000 word excerpt is judged, and the contestants are whittled from 400 in each category to (I believe) 100. So, I'd appreciate any positive thoughts and energies and good luck you want to send my way!

If you're looking for free, quality poetry or a great free novel (wink, wink) this is the weekend for you!

Poetry - My editor, David Malone, is also an accomplished poet who even has had a twitter poem on National Public Radio's Tell Me More. He currently has his works up on his website, for free download. I love how his word choice evokes the sense of surreal nature with a twist.

Novel - Yeah, it's just me. I'm almost done with this go-round of Amazon Prime, and still have some free days to use up, so Finding Meara is going free this weekend. I marked it up to $3.99 several weeks ago, so if you can think of someone who might enjoy the story, this is the weekend to share the news!

Last week's favorite photo was:

Here's the new ones!

Only to be seen in shadow.

Yes, I would, because it took me close to a minute to find it when the picture was small.

Bill and Ted of the insect world.

They perform an important doggy service - demon removal. The dog in the pic above needs to come here.

All I could see for the longest time was the aliens with tiny antennae.

Our pun this week:

My favorite was the exorcism picture. Totally hit my funny bone.

What's your favorite?

Have a great weekend!


  1. Yay! Congrats on moving to the next round in the Breakthrough Novel contest. That is awesome!

    Our kids want to see the Muppet movie, and also the Mr. Peabody one. Did you see the Lego one? I liked it--especially the ending, which I wasn't expecting.

    The dog demon one was cute. I never thought a doggy groomer was so talented. :) Have a great weekend!

    1. Yes, I guess there is talent to be had in everything!

      We were going to go to Mr. Peabody and Sherman last week, but with Boy 2 getting sick, we decided to just wait for the Muppet movie. It was cute. And Tina Fey was fabulous! We did see the Lego Movie and I agree, the ending was totally unexpected, but absolutely perfect to make it a really good movie!

      And thank you! Most of my digits will be crossed for the next three (I think) weeks. :)

  2. Yes, absolutely sending positive vibes on your Amazon entry!! Very exciting. Good luck!

    And I like the demon dog too. Ha!

    1. Thanks, L.G. It's so nice to see you again! I'm going to be watching your blog for more posts, just so you know... :)

  3. Funniest was the color blind dog. Scariest is the camouflaged leopard.

    1. Would you have been eaten? :) I never thought about dogs being color blind before, in relation to stop lights. I don't know why it was such a revelation to me, but I kind of went "Oh, yeah! Stoplights have no meaning." Maybe because of seeing eye dogs and how they watch to make sure it's okay to cross?

  4. Some dogs have a dark side :) Though the alien angel one was cute too.

    1. Hi, Melanie! Thanks for voting! The dark side of the dog reminds me of the dogs that attacked me and the boys outside of their school. Makes me a little uncomfortable looking at it. :P

  5. Best of luck to you and Meara.

    I liked the Unique horn best.

    1. Thanks, David! And I'm glad you picked the pun, because I wondered if it was too corny. :) Or horny? Aagh. Better stop while I'm ahead. Not sure where THAT stream of consciousness was going.

  6. Congrats on making it through to ABNA second round! Good luck on getting into the third!

    I'm voting for Bill & Ted's Excellent Mantis Adventure. I saw the penguins right away, but the leopard took a bit longer. :)

    1. Thanks, Lexa! Here's to hoping!

      I'm embarrassed how long it took me to find the leopard. I claim the small photo size as the reason why, but I'm not sure I just didn't see it.


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Please leave your comments below.
