Randomosity on Fridays

Ah, the glorious short week after a long weekend! It's Friday again, peeps. Aren't you glad?

Here's my Friday 5!

1. So I'm kind of sad I didn't go to the NKOTBSB concerts that happened this past week, especially since Kevin (the 5th member of the Backstreet Boys, who left after their comeback album) made an appearance at the Staples Center show & sang a couple tunes with them.

2. This weekend and next are going to be Harry Potter weekends. I'm thinking of going to nucleus gallery's Harry Potter Tribute Exhibition on Saturday, and next Thursday night is the midnight showing!

3. Who else was stuck at work or stuck in class or otherwise unable to watch the whole Potter Live thing? Yeah, I was so jealz of all the people on Twitter freaking out about it. Bright side? I don't think I could've handled it (I hear there were tears). So I still haven't watched it.

4. This is my jam right now. Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga



I'm not much for the video, but the song just makes me happy and makes me want to sing.

5. Special things going on at A Nudge next week, so please tune in! Firstly, I'm participating in Shelly's (from Writing with Shelly) Poetry Schmoetry Blogfest!


I'll be posting up a poem on Wednesday - something old, something new, I'm not sure yet. I used to totally think I was a poet in like middle school. Thankfully, I grew out of it, but I still do appreciate the wordsmithing that goes into poetry. So I'm eager to try my hand at it again (and also kind of dreading it). Do join!


Then on Friday, July 15, I'm expecting a very special guest from the wondrous mind of Danyelle Leafty. I'll be hosting one of the characters from Danyelle's new serial novel, The Fairy Godmother Dilemma.

This is great because I will be passed out Friday morning after staying up for Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. Hah. So I'm (perhaps foolishly) entrusting A Nudge to one of Danyelle's lovely characters. It should be fine, right?

Be sure to check Danyelle's blog for the other stops on the Blog Tour!

To learn more about the project and about the whole serial novel thing, check out the site (linked above)!

You can also read the first chapter here.

That's it for me. Pretty random, right? What's your random? :)

See you Wednesday!

Random? I'm wearing a powdered wig right now. ;) My coworkers think I'm nuts, but I think I'm rocking it. One of the perks of working in the French Quarter is that no one outside looks twice at my wig.

Okay, not wearing the powdered wig. Yet.

Have a great weekend!

I've been hearing about the serial novels lately. I'll have to check out the link.

I'm so jealous that you're going to see the HP movie. Have fun!! I'd never be able to stay awake that late. So I'll wait a week or two and go to a matinee showing. I can't wait to hear how great it is.

I'm so excited for the blog tour. How great of you to agree to host!

Fun! Thanks for the shout out!

Friday looks fun as well. I'm a sucker for a fairytale. I'll be looking forward to popping in :)

I missed the Potter Live thingy too! Bummer. We're going to watch all the movies next week though.

I just love Fridays! I'm going to see Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 this Thursday (premiere here is in June 15th). I'm really excited.

Hope you'll enjoy, too!

Danyelle said...

Thanks for the shout out! :)

And *hugs* It's kind of weird to know that this is the last HP thing that'll be out for a while. :(

Thanks for the Gaga song! I hadn't heard it yet. I'm slow like that, sometimes. Snort.

The serial novel of Danyelle's sounds brilliant!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

That song is fun! It sounds so 80's to me. Hehe. But it's got a great sound.

Jolene Perry said...

wow. you're always so busy with so much fun stuff :D

Ahh! I forgot about the blogfest! Good thing it's not Wednesday yet!

And I'm totally on the outs with all the HP stuff. So yeah. I missed the Potter Live thing too. You're not alone!
