So Random...

I was in the Bernard Pivot Blogfest yesterday... totally hopped on board at the last minute when I saw all the coolness going by. And randomness of all randomness, My follower count jumped from 97 to 106!!! I mean that's like 10 more people! Totally gobsmacked. Aren't I supposed to like have a little party or something? I'm very stoked to have so many followers. It's like a scene from Julie and Julia over here where Julie finds out people are reading her blog... that or a recreation of Truvy shouting 'I'm a chain!' Not to date myself or anything... But anyway, I'm so excited to have broken the 100 follower mark. And I didn't even notice it was happening. Blame it on the dyscalculia, or the fact that whenever I do anything online during the day, it's done through a haze of dirt, horse sweat and hay particulates, but either way, my follower count snuck right up on me. YAY! Thank you everyone who added me to their list! I'm still working my way through all of the entrants in the blogfest, around trying to get a query letter reworked *wince, cringe, groan* and getting my real job done but so far I'm loving all of the answers everyone has put up!

And to celebrate the jump in my followers, an amusing picture... Followers, I salute you! And love you. Thank you for being there!

Bernard Pivot Blogfest!

Nichole Ducleroir got this entire thing started and I heard about it from a guy who saw something about it when he was looking over a girl's shoulder in a wifi shop while waiting for a latte... ok, total lie, but it sounds good. The truth is that I saw it this morning while I was trying desperately to catch up on blog stuff (I haven't caught up on anything because I'm doing this instead) and it seemed like too much fun to miss. So here goes.

* What is your favorite word?

* What is your least favorite word?

* What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Pen, paper, nature

* What turns you off?
humanity scraping over nature, rather than trying to exist within it

* What is your favorite curse word?
Probably Hell's pit

* What sound or noise do you love?
Leaves falling through trees, horses chewing, train whistles my best friend snorting while she laughs

* What sound or noise do you hate?

* What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Something in the circus

* What profession would you not like to do?
anything with customer service

* If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I'd love it if he just erupted into belly laughs
