but i have this amazing crit parner, who not only taught me how to make exciting hyperlinks but told me i really should be on the absolutewrite forums. i signed up the way i do anything new online -- hesitantly and suspicious that my identity will be stolen momentarily.
it's been a few weeks now. i sometimes forget to check back in when i post things, but all in all it's going along swimmingly. to the point that, i also signed up to be on a blog roll which is where everyone visits everyone else's blog.
number of blogs i've visited from it? erm, remember how i said i kinda forget to check back in on things i post? so none yet, but by monday i'll have viewed them all! (wait, did everyone new just stop ready? poop.)
anyhoo... today is my turn to post something for the blog roll! the theme is Setting the Scene.
so welcome anyone new. i've devised a game called here's my setting guess the scene.
setting: random decorative object in my house?
scene: ho ho no! i mean yes, but let's call the scene: Girl's Only Birthday Wish.
when asked what i'd like for my birthday this year, these lights were the only thing that came to mind because i like gifts that are both useful and easy to find a place for. who says i ain't got me some class?
setting: solitary confinement?
scene: yes! welcome to the view of my bathroom. (what? solitary confinement's not a dig. i live alone. it's a play on words).
why did i think new viewers to my blog would like to see what i see when i look out my bathroom window?well 'cause it's kinda funny but more because i'm still in pajamas, needed to shoot photos and this seemed the most interesting.
can you imagine the rest of my apartment? if my tiny bathroom window and silly lightup flower lights are the best things in it?
one more. this game is super fun, right?
setting: bedside table?
scene: haha, no! this is a picture of how to spend a perfect morning. cup of coffee, kinda early so you don't feel guilty about still being in bed, and an AMAZING book. The Scorpio Races is one of the ARCs i had signed from BEA. it is PHENOMENAL. luckily when ms. stiefvater signed it for me i hadn't read it yet, otherwise i might have been fawny and overly gushy about how much i love this freakin' book.
i can't wait until you read it. if i didn't want to keep it, i'd send it around so you could all read it right after me. but i do want to keep it, so you'll have to wait for it to actually come out. sorry. but seriously. get this book
i hope you enjoyed this little game. i'm sure i've butchered both the meanings of setting and scene, bored you to tears, and offended you by saying that i haven't yet fully participated in the blogroll.
which means that you've had a true to form unfortunate behaviors blog experience. *pats self on back*
happy friday and see you all soon on yours!
