Five Dollar Fun Fact Friday!


Some housekeeping stuff first, then the CONTEST!!

Christina L. and Ally asked for Falling Apart in One Piece so I want to make sure the book goes to you both for your mom and your friend so please email me your addresses at stephanieelliot@gmail.com and we'll make sure to get the book to you guys. Thank YOU both also for being sensitive and wanting the book to go to someone you know who needs it, and thanks to Carly and Michelle, the winners who wanted to share it with someone who could benefit from it!

Starting SOMETIME next week--ANOTHER BOOK FRENZY GIVEAWAY! Not AS crazy as March, but I've got a list of about 6-10 books (including Jen Weiner!) that I'll give away, maybe not daily, maybe every other day, but that's the fun of NOT KNOWING ... surprises surprises surprises! Who out there knows who Gomer Pyle is? Oh my Gosh I am soooo old. Not that I really know who he is. Or what about that other one, never mind. I'm stopping...

Friday, Friday, everybody's ready for Friday ... have you all listened to that HORRIBLE song yet? I could make you watch that video here if I embedded it on my blog, but I won't. However if you're curious and want your eyes AND ears to bleed, and if you don't have a tweener in the house and haven't heard it yet, just google "Rebecca Black Friday."

You're welcome. To hell.

So anyway, it IS Friday and I'm going to resurrect ... OMG! That was UNINTENTIONAL but IT IS GOOD FRIDAY and Jesus is going to ressurect on Sunday. What a coincidence.

But today, I am going to ressurect an old Blog Dealio I used to do called Five Buck Friday but then I got into some trouble because that Five Buck Friday phrase was copyrighted and a very nice man contacted me and told me I couldn't use it on the internet because it belonged to him and his flowershop. (See, I purposely said it here in the hopes he would contact me again ... HI NICE FLOWER SHOP GUY!)

So I have to change the name of my internet game to ...

Drum Roll ...

Five Dollar Fun Fact Friday!

Here's what it used to be: FIVE BUCK FRIDAY Here's how we'll play today:

I'm going to ask a random question. You guys can answer it in the comment section.

ONE GUESS PER PERSON!

Whoever gets it right will win a crisp five dollar bill from me AND a couple MaNiC MoMMy magnets (Whoooo Hooooo!)

I know, I know, crazy fun right? But it's Friday, and if you're at work, you're bored to death. If you're at home, reading this, well, then you're bored to death too, cuz you're reading THIS. You might as well get paid for your efforts, right?

So, let's just play and see how it goes.

Here's the question, and let me tell you, *I* didn't even know the answer, I had to call up my friend and ASK her the answer! So good luck on guessing THIS one!

The last movie I saw in the movie theater was a comedy. What is the name of that movie?
YOU CAN ONLY GUESS ONCE FOR NOW, SO MAKE IT A GOOD ONE!

Remember, you get one guess for now (Oh, I just said that), unless I come in and offer another clue in the comment section if no one guesses it right away. Also, I will be on the road for part of the day and unable to access the internet so the right answer may be in the comments but I won't be able to respond immediately.

Good luck, and have fun!

Happy Easter to you all as well!

Ok I already commented today but, I have to tell you what a great day I am having. It was my first day off in AGES so I thought I would go to the local used bookstore. I love reading books and then returning them and getting credit for new books. I picked up several books that were recommended by friends: Carl Hiassen, The Other Boleyn Girl and Bloodroot. Then I got She's Come Undone, which you recommended. I also made a list of all the authors that gave away books through MM and searched for each author. I will go back and look whenever I have time and then will buy them from the independent store when I run out. I was so excited to get Emily Giffin after your awesome story about how she taught you to smile. The only Eileen Cook's they had I had already read. Hope I can find some of the other authors soon. So excited to read new books!
