7 Things About Me and a Couple o' Blog Hops

Okay, so almost a week ago, my NA Sister Bailey Kelsey tagged me to list 7 facts about myself.  I said I would do it yesterday, but I spaced it.  So bad.  Fail on my part.

So, really quickly, here are 7 facts about  me - all related to food, because I'm so dang hungry but don't want to spoil my supper!

1.  Phish Food Ice Cream (Ben and Jerry's) is the most wonderful ice cream in the world to me.

2.  I love raw oysters with lemon and hot sauce.

3.  I also love octopus and calamari.  Yummy.

4.  I'm having (mushroom-and-meat red sauce) pasta in a few hours and it smells so good, I'm climbing the walls.

5.  I had French-bread-French-toast and a ham steak for lunch today.

6.  And speaking of steak, I love steak! A medium rare Filet Mignon is my favorite.

7.  I've tried frog legs before.  Tasted like chicken.

Okay, now I'm supposed to tag 7 people...but all the people I wanna tag are doing the A-Z and probably don't want to have to do another post.  I'll allow you to tag yourself, if you're interested.  Maybe you can do it next Sunday, when you're not required to post.


Also, I've joined a couple of more blog hops for May (Why do I keep doing this to myself? LOL).

From Sara McClung's Blog:
The purpose: To get back in the habit of blogging by following a weekly schedule for the month of May. (Or if you already post regularly, to have an easy schedule to follow without having to struggle with deciding what to blog about.)

(And if posting every day sounds like too much, or if you miss a few days, or only do a couple posts a week, who cares, yanno?)
What you DON'T have to do: Follow every blog that participates and comment on everyone's posts every day. This isn't a blogfest to gain followers--although maybe that will happen. And of course if you WANT to comment on everyone's posts, feel free. :) 

But really the point of this is to focus mostly on our own blogs and to write posts about things we're interested in that our followers will want to read about. 
The schedule: 

Mondays: May I tell you something about writing?
This can be anything writing-related. A post on craft. A post on your process. A snippet of your WIP, if you like to share. A book on craft that you want to recommend. Things you struggle with. Things you rock at. ANYTHING at all! 

Tuesdays: May I tell you something about myself?
Pretty self-explanatory :) Share something about yourself that your followers might not know. Or maybe they do. It doesn't matter--this is just so people who read your blog can get to know you a little better. 

Wednesdays: May I ask something about you?
Ask your followers something about themselves. 

Thursdays: May I tell you something about someone else?
Make this post about someone else. A writing friend. A critique partner. A person from history who's fascinating. A character from a book. Anyone you want. :) Have a guest poster. Give an interview. Get creative! Just let the spotlight shine on someone else. 

Fridays: May I share something funny?
Fridays = the starts of weekends! BOOYA. Reason to celebrate and laugh on it's own--plus, who doesn't want to see something amusing after a long week?

From Alex J. Cavanaugh:

First Loves Blogfest - on May 14, post your first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest! 

(This is a nice easy one)


  1. Oh, Lord, Jaycee, you're making me hungry now ... and I don't even have ice cream to eat! lol

    1. Aww, sorry. :(

      I have no ice cream either...just WISH I did. LOL.

  2. Holy crap I didn't even know I was tagged??? I must do this too :) Awesome facts. I just ate and now I'm hungry again, haha. I joined these hops too. Thanks for spreading the word!

    1. I only found out b/c twitter was quiet on the NASisters front, and I decided to check the # for it. Turns out Baily had a post there which linked to her tagging of us. LOL.

  3. Darn it, Jaycee! It's going on one in the morning, and I'm hungry now! *Grins*

  4. Bleh. You can keep your raw oysters with lemon and hot sauce. But that pasta sounds interesting.
    I ain't doing to A-Z Challenge, but I'm running outta facts. :P


    1. Lol, first thing I thought when I saw this was of Gollum from LOTR - you can keep your nasty chips! ;P

  5. I don't think I can face another month long blog fest, but I am looking forward to Alex's! :D

    1. It's going to be rough, but I'm going to try!

  6. Oh, man, I love Phish Food. I want to go get some now (it's 6:30 in the morning here).

    Thanks for the update on the bloghops!

    1. I see "Phish Food" and I start salivating. I love it that much. LOL.

  7. Suddenly I'm hungry. And a bit jealous ... :)

  8. You have just made me so very hungry, and I won't get dinner for hours yet! Or a snack. I have a strict rule about not eating before ballet when learning variations.

    Also, I agree with most of your food statements. We can be food buddies!

    1. Aww, I'm sorry.

      Sisters and food buddies! I like that. :D
