Friday Events (June 2nd)

I did not get to return comments last week--I had the mother of all bad weeks--but I will return them this week along with the ones from last week.

I also am borderline dancing joyously because the Motherreader 48 Hour Reading Challenge starts on the 3rd. Last year I went 43 hours. I think I am going to try to do the full 48 this year.

Cupcake of the week: Crème Brulee

Reviews posted this week:
  1. The Ninth Wife by Amy Stolls
  2. Mr. Darcy and the Secret of Becoming a Gentleman by Maria Hamilton
  3. Love Drunk Cowboy by Carolyn Brown
  4. Mocked By Destiny by Michele Richard
  5. The London Train by Tessa Hadley
  6. Wickedly Charming by Kristine Grayson

This week's question is:     Q. What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)   There is only one thing you can do to prepare for a zombie apocalypse or a Mel Gibson movie: Cardio. But I’m not doing much of it anyway. So I am likely going to die.

My favorite post from last month was my post Blogging about Blogging from Armchair BEA. It’s my simple little blogging manifesto. I don’t have many rules about blogging but the ones I follow are in there.


  1. Haha! So true! I am also unprepared and am starting to worry just a little bit!


  2. @Bonnie

    I think I've just accepted my imminent death and am just trying to read as many books beforehand as I can.

  3. Hopping through. I'd say running specifically on the cardio training would be useful.

  8. Hi & Happy Friday!

    Have a nice weekend.

    PS. Yummo to Crème Brulee cupcakes ;)

  9. Armchair BEA was a lot of fun. I chose xxxHolic volume 1 by CLAMP as my favorite post for May 2011. Come see why.

  10. Thanks for stopping by and following. I'm following back!
    I don't think even cardio will save us from the return of malicious Mel.

  11. We'll all die at some point! Enjoy life while you can. Given the choice between a zombie apocalypse and Mel Gibson, i think I'd take the zombies.

  13. lol--great answer! I can see the t-shirt/bumper-sticker now, "Cardio--Zombies can't eat you if they can't catch you"

  15. howard@malinche.netThe Follow Friday post is (and, as always, please be sure to include the signature below):

    As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  16. Hello! I am your newest follower and I don't do much cardio either, so if you meet me in the event of a zombie-apocalypse I might already have turned. :) Please follow me back when you can, thanks!

  17. Oops, I meant.

  18. Having good cardio abilities will get you out of a light of iffy situations.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  19. Love the blog. New follower. I plan to get a gun and hopefully will be able to use it, so that I can defend myself. Trying to have good cardio is important if you don't want to end up zombie food.

  20. #1 one about Zombiland- Always outrun your component....lolz
