Morning Meanderings… Reality sometimes hits you right in the face
Good morning! Coffee Cup and I are off to a good start today. After a really good weekend and a pretty decent Monday here we are back again.
So…. fact about me… I really like about three tv shows. Survivor, Biggest Loser and Amazing Race. I love the challenges, I love to see them succeed…. I love to cheer for my teams. SO… on Sunday evening Al and I sat down to watch the season premiere of Amazing Race. They had one challenge where the teams had to use a big sling shot with watermelons to knock over life-size suits of armor that were lined up in a field. It was a pretty cool challenge and this one team of two girls was really struggling. And well….. look for yourself:
Can you even believe how that happened? I was amazed that she didn’t break her nose or knock out some teeth. How she was able to go on from that was like….. “Whoa!” Unbelievable! Poor girl!
Anyway – had to share that with you.
In other news…. I hope you had a chance to check out my new sticky post. We are currently looking for Mini Challenge Hosts for the Dewey read A Thon and we would love to get some new people involved who haven’t hosted a mini challenge before. Check out the Read-A-Thon site for more information. Basically all you do is plan a giveaway around a little challenge. It can be to answer a question, do a little task….. whatever, then you offer a prize to your winner. It is a two-hour commitment and will drive traffic to your blogs. If you need any help thinking of a challenge let me know and I can try to assist you. Please consider being a mini-challenge host for the October 9th event.
Oh – I was also featured on Reading Minnesota yesterday promoting the Twin Cities Book Festival and Book Blogger meet up. If you have a second stop by and check that out.
And finally yes…. the “Banned Wagon” is still moving full steam ahead.
I am off to work and tonight I have kick ball (feel free to insert giggles here). Hope you have a fantastic day and moments of good reads! :D
