Follow Me Friday + Book Blogger Hop (#2)

Friday has come around again, and with it my second weekend after school's started back. My sophomores are sweet, but I'm pretty tired after my first six days of waking up at 5:30.

So it's 10:15 and I've had dinner with the in-laws, who are visiting. It's only right that I complete my memes before bed!

Follow Me Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. To participate, bloggers answer a question that deals with reading. Then we look at others' responses and meet a few new faces in the blogger universe. Every week they each feature a blog and this week they are Samantha @ Caught in the Pages and Jeni Elyse. Check out their sites! 

The question for this Friday:
In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

I have to say, I'm all about the pegasus. I think that would be cool, and I wouldn't mind catching some air on a night ride toward the ocean. Then I could dip my feet in the sandy water on the beach (under a full moon, of course). Oklahoma has lakes. Red dirt changing my bathing suit to brown is not my idea of a good time. Plus, sand feels so much better in your toes when it's lining a real ocean.

Book Blogger Hop

Jen @ Crazy for Books hosts a weekly meme that encourages other bloggers to explore book blogs.

Her question:
Do you have pets?
No. Our apartment doesn't allow them. I know my husband will beg me for a puppy when we move. I've never had a dog or cat though because my brothers were allegeric to fur. All I had was a gold fish a second grade friend bought to our door in a bowl when he was literally about to leave for the airport (a move). What was I supposed to do, say no? We adopted Kingy and he lived for two years! Then we had to move and gave him to our friends who owned a pond. He froze in the winter time. All I kept thinking was, "But we kept him alive for two whole years..." Down the drain:(

If you'd like to join these lovely blog hops, please check rules here.

Signing off for now (after checking out a few new blogs, of course). I hope your weekend is fun. I just found I'm going to Tops and Blue tomorrow- only the best Air Force singing/dancing/musical instrument talent around. Then next Saturday is Shakespeare in the Park's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Yay!

Pegasus is a stunning mythological creature! Too bad for your gold fish, I'd be reacting the same way. Thanks for stopping by and becoming my 100th follower! I'm following you too, and what a coincidence I'm your 50th folower:) Have a great weekend!

What a great answer- I don't think anyone else has said Pegasus. Have you read the book Pegasus by Robin McKinley? Not much plot, the hook is OMG, BFF w/ a pegasus!!! But, that's enough to keep a lot of girls going, I think!

I'd wish for mermaids to be real. I've just always loved them.

What a pity about Kingy! I know some folks who have a tiny outdoor pond, and they keep a heater for it, for winter months. It still freezes over the top, but the water underneath is warmed up a little, and the fish kind of hibernate their way through winter.

Just dropping by for the blog hop! I used to have a few goldfish. They actually got pretty large. Have a great rest of the weekend!

I'd love for Pegasus to be real too. I'd want one for a pet so I could ride it all the time. I also wouldn't mind a unicorn.

Jackie's Little World said...

That's a great answer! I never would have thought of a Pegasus...but that would actually be pretty awesome.

I never had pets growing up either. I aim on keeping it that way for as long as possible :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Following you back!

Pegasus would be so awesome! I would love to fly around on a winged horse and have it do my bidding.
