Friday Fix #7 It's...ME!

Friday, February 26, 2010

The Friday Fix is a takeover of my Friday blog post by other bloggers who have volunteered their time and energy to "star" in their very own guest post on Friday. Only one mandatory thing - you must answer five of the most random questions I throw your way. The rest is up to you.

Now, unfortunately this week, I wasn't able to find another blogger in time to put up their very own Friday Fix, so I would love to extend this invitation again to all of you! Big blogs, little're all welcome, and I'd love to have you. If you click on my profile, you can find my email address. Just let me know you're interested in participating, and I'll give you both a date and the most ridiculous questions you've ever seen!

Well, instead of asking myself the questions I'd normally ask others, I thought I'd do something silly. I figured I'd tell you 10 of the most random things you never wanted (or needed) to know about me instead!

1. I am obsessed with cleanliness. I vacuum every day, and I shower at least three times a day.
2. I am terrified of the bottom of boats. And spiders. And things with too many legs.
3. If I were given $1 million, I would invest half and travel with the rest.
4. I have the maturity level of a flea when it comes to humour.
5. I would like to go to Antarctica.
6. I love church, but I've always been scared I'll accidentally stand up and yell something inappropriate in the middle of the homily.
7. I can't function without coffee in the morning.
8. I read the last two Harry Potter books in 14 hours and 15 hours, respectively. Oh, I'm also secretly annoyed that Hermione is pretty in real life because I am jealous. :)
9. I freak out when I have minor paper cuts or bruises, but if I seriously injure myself like when I broke my foot sophomore year of university, I play it off and pretend it didn't happen.
10. I have a penchant for using big words like "penchant" and flaunting my excessive vocabulary skills, but if you ask me excel in math, I will have to admit a cocker spaniel is most likely smarter than I am.

Now, because I took over my own post today (so sorry to disappoint), I'm going to share a few contests with you around the blogosphere!

Just Blinded Book Reviews is giving away a signed copy of WAKE and some amazing swag! Check out the link for more info!

Sarah is giving away a copy of an amazing book. Want to see which one? Check out the link!.

Angie is ringing in spring with some of the cutest presents I've ever seen!

Almost lastly, because you're all so wonderful, and I'm so appreciative of every single of one you...I'm hosting a flash giveaway starting tomorrow. Check back tomorrow if you'd like to participate!

Annnndddd finally, the lovely Jessica from Jessica's Vision put up an interview with me today! Please show her some blog love!


  1. Fun post! I love when people tells random things about themselves! And really, you shower three times a day?!? I suddenly feel very dirty and unfresch... :S

  2. Awesome post! Ah, the HP books...those books are the only one's that I would stay up all night for ;)

  3. This was a fun and interesting post! I'm also the same exact way with cuts or injuries. I freak over the little things, but I'm calm over the big ones...weird.

  4. 3 showers a day...hoe does your skin not get dried out?? Like YA Vamps said...Im feeling kinda dirty.....

  5. Ugh, I feel the same way about math! Nice to learn more about you!

  6. Just Posted your Guest Post on my Blog here's the link

  7. 6 makes me giggle! :)

    Happy Friday :)
    Thanks for sharing :)

  8. I like your blog. This was an interesting post.

    Lol, with cuts and bruises - If I was on my own, I'd not take any notice but if I was with someone I'd probably allow my "inner child" to be free and make a big fuss of it.

  9. Same about vocabulary. I too have the 'penchant'. LOL And yeah for coffee. Can't live without it !

  10. Interesting post. At least i know you better now. And I felt the same way about Hermoine.. *LOL*

  11. Melissa,

    Thanks for sharing the spring give-away! Good Luck, yourself!

  13. This was fun!

    Matt makes fun of me because I usually shower twice a day. He thinks it is a weird habit but I just like feeling clean. :)

    I would love to do this, so I am going to e-mail you!

  14. Haha, how awesome that you're obsessed with cleanliness, I love people like that! Great post! :D

  15. Thanks for sharing, Melissa! You are such an interesting lady! :P

    And oh my gosh, I'm right with you on #6! I'm always afraid that either I (or my brothers or my dad) will yell out, "hurry up, dammit! FOOTBALL'S ON!" hahaha or something else colorful!

    I have a prediction, though: I predict that you will stay up 14+ hours for THE LAST OLYMPIAN ;)

    Thanks again for sharing!

  16. Great job taking over your own blog!! i would to do a Friday Fix sometime if you are looking for someone.

  17. wow Melissa -- good to know a bit about you. I have no idea how you keep up with everything in your day -- since your busy cleaning AND working AND blogging AND swimming AND reading AND commenting AND ...whew. You exhaust me.
