Verification? Schmerification... :p

Happy Wednesday, all!

Bare with me.  I'm having one of those random "what the heck do I blog about today" moments.  We all get them, right?  (eek!  it's not just me, is it?  IS IT??)  I've been trying to catch up on my blog reads today.  And can I just say - you guys like ROCK and stuff!  I've been thoroughly entertained!

Colene Murphy had a great blog up about NO EXCUSES!  It was more than that - some great examples of people to really be inspired by, but I love her "this-is-how-it-is-and-you're-going-to-read-it-and-like-it" message at the end.  Timely, for me, because I'm an excuse-making maven!

Abby Minard (one great bloggy friend) interviewed Jen Daiker (another favorite bloggy friend!) today!  Some fabulous tidbits about Jen that, ok - kind of make me want to throw things at her, but since I love her so much, I'll resist - I'm sure you'd love to read about.

And reading Jen's blog (hilarious today, btw) led me to a new blog (yay!!!) and a really cool blogfest!  Check out the "100 words for $100" blogfest here, courtesy of Elena Solodow ~ :)

Elana Johnson's blog was all about (now - sing it with me!!) "These are a few of my fav-or-ite things"

Shannon Whitney Messenger also answered some questions about herself today that you MUST read!  Seriously - I laugh out loud every single time I read her blogs.  :)  (Oh - and hot guys always to be found here - BONUS!)

Shayda Bakshi had a great post about cheerios and cutting cholesterol in your Wips!  Great advice!  And a SPECIAL SHOUT OUT to her for getting an honorable mention in another pitch contest!!  That's so GREAT!

And you still have time to get in on Dangerous with a Pen's "Stranger than Fiction" blogfest - ENDS tonight, midnight.  She's got some FAB prizes up for grabs, so check it out!

And one more - my little sis started a blog and right now I'm her ONLY follower... :(  If you get a chance to read her and would like to follow, you can find The Great EsCait here!

If you're not mentioned above, please don't think that it's because I don't love you!!  It's just that these great posts are what I've managed to read today...but, I'm still reading!!  I just thought I needed to get a post out there, too.

But, as my ideas pale in comparison - I thought I'd just link you to some good reads today.

I will leave you with my one thought - reading through all these blogs has required me to put in A LOT of those darned little verification words!!!!!  **

Where do they come up with those things???  But, I thought it might be fun to write a few down and try to use them in a sentence.  Here's today's winners: (verification words underlined)

"I was gurking Saturday night, and dude, it totally threw my back out."
"I'm proud to say that I am now 100% fluent in Inglic."
"Forsoan long now, I just can't eat chicken without thinking about Bert."
"I really must admire Persephone for all her lovely pirthespian sensibilities."

My challenge to you today?  PLEASE COMMENT WITH A HUM-DINGER SENTENCE OF YOUR OWN USING TODAY'S BEST VERIFICATION WORD!!  (*winner for the best one will get a virtual high-5 and I'll totally drink a glass of bubbly (cider) in your honor!!)

Hey, thanks for stopping by. So whatcha working on, fiction writing-wise?

Shannon said...

Great links. Thanks! Lots of good stuff going on.

Colene Murphy said...

Hey WHOO! Shout out! You're such a doll, Donea! Thank you!

Blogs have been great today! Loved all those too!!

And yes, WTF do I blog about days totally suck. But they happen. And you totally kicked its butt with this one!

I wish I had a verification sentence to add to your awesomely funny ones!

Shayda Bakhshi said...

Awww! Thanks so much! You're awesome! :D

Beth said...

We all have these moments with nohting to blog about. You got creative with the links and sentences. LOL ;)

Arlee Bird said...

Don't have a sentence, but I do enjoy some of those weird words that come up. What I hate is when my comment gets lost because of some kind of glitch with the WV or my computer or both--I don't know which, but it sure is annoying.

Tossing It Out

Abby Minard said...

Grr, I hate those verification words lol! I've gotten some humdingers and now I can't remember them! Oh man I had a great one the other day where I was like, are they allowed to put that there??? It sounded really obscene. But I can't remember it! I'll come back and post one if I get a good one. Cute post today and thanks for the shout-out!

Abby Minard said...

Found one:
"Allyho! Thar she blows!"

Abby Minard said...

"Is that my fingasoc you're wearing?"

Joanna St. James said...

I've had penips before that stunned me for a while

Lydia K said...

Thanks for all the great linkage! I'm going to check a bunch out now. Since my blog post, I've not had many word verifications today, haha!

Tracy Z. said...

I love it when fellow bloggers broadcast links for the blogs they love to read!

Donea Lee said...

Too funny - I was reading Lydia's blog about verification words and it seems that a lot of us are of the same opinion - they're annoying!! :) But, fun to have fun with it. I still want Joanna to use "penips" in a sentence... :)

Thanks for the comments, everyone!
