It's Friday...you know the drill

Ok, so here's what we've learned this week:

1. Do you think the people who found our blog by searching for "Payback is a bitch poem" or "How does Justin Bobby make his money" were disappointed? Yeah, me too.

2. Turns out TV does get trashier than The Real Housewives of NYC or am I the only person watching The Real Houswives of New Jersey? Wait, don't answer that.

3. BEA = a fabulous event in NYC that we're not allowed to attend that basically shuts down the publishing industry indefinitely. Ouch.

4. Never, ever let a stylist that you've met for the first time anywhere near your bangs with scissors. Just trust me on this one.

5. The Duel 2 is this show on MTV where former roommates on The Real World go to some exotic locale, drink excessively and try to justify their eternal joblessness by competing to win an obscene amount of money. Oh, and judging by the opening credits, they take themselves pretty seriously. See below for unintentional comedy at its finest.



6. OK, so there are loads of people lurking on our blog (you know who you are), and we want to know you too! So, in honor of lurkers everywhere, we're giving away two books this week: The Season by Sarah MacLean and Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. All you have to do is leave a comment AND if this is your first comment on our little blog, we'll enter you twice! The winner will be announced on Monday.

Good luck and have a great weekend everyone!

Hi! I'm a lurker :)

Rebecca said...

I proudly confess to lurking round these parts! What's not to love - trash talking on the celebrities, sharing your publishing journey...uh, yeah, that's pretty awesome stuff! Love your blog ladies.

Oh how I love the RR/RW duel--it's my trash t.v. escape. And just so I'm clear: are you saying I SHOULDN'T walk around town, grunting along to the choreographed routine? :D

ElanaJ said...

Lurkers, pshaw! I never lurk. ;-) I just love your blog!

Tara said...

Love your blog! And we all know I love to lurk. Happy Friday - have a great weekend!

Corey Schwartz said...

Great idea. Maybe I need a un-lurking contest too!

sraasch said...

Not a lurker, but I thought I'd agree with the bang thing. Dangerous, dangerous, indeed.

Tess said...

Gotta love a contest! And, I love your friday posts...a guaranteed laugh :D

Sarah said...

Sort of a lurker but I've commented before!
Hehe. How does Justin Bobby make his money? He's not a stylist, that's for sure;)

Kat said...

Can I pretend to be a lurker for an extra entry?

:P

Danyelle said...

Does it count if my invisible friend is a lurker? :D

Jill Wheeler said...

Wintergirls is awesome. Hey, did you guys watch the Jon and Kate craziness earlier this week? What's your opinion on all that?

Shelli said...

i wish i was alurker for an extra point. Thats what i get for being a blab mouth. ;)

Jeannie Lin said...

Definitely a fun place to be on Fridays!

Katie said...

I keep watching those hilarious Cleveland videos and cracking up! I wanna come! I just made my hubby watch. Why do y'all live there?? Are you from there? Can that guy who made them do a guest blog spot? Or an interview?

I'm still giggling...

Lisa and Laura said...

Hoorah for lurkers! And of course, hoorah for our regular commenters too. We love you guys!

We've been a little scared to hold a contest mainly because we'd be really embarrassed if no one entered.

So thanks for reading guys and get excited for the big announcement on Monday!

Icy Roses said...

Wow, that's really funny. I definitely just commented about the BEA on my blog because the NYT wrote an article about how sales are diminishing.

Surprise.

Awww, man. I should have waited until today to de-lurk! Alas, I did it a few posts back. Free books are always cool, though. :-) And I heard "Wintergirls" was awesome.

Kimberly Derting said...

I love the "unintentional comedy" comment. And I'm with Katie, I still can't get over the hilarious Cleveland videos...my husband and I were cracking up!

Little Ms J said...

I hate that intro on RW/RR! Every time it comes on I have to hide my face behind a blanket or use it as an excuse to run to the bathroom.

Since you haven't made the announcement yet, can I still enter?
