Back to Books Post 8: Wednesday Contest

This post it written by (as Kim would say) The Other One!

Before I say anything, can you believe it is ALREADY September?

By the time this post is up, it’ll be the first day of school for me. All those relaxing summer days? THEY’RE GONE…the bright side is, today is Wednesday, which means school starts at 9. More sleep? Heck yes. *happy dances*

And there’s always those pesky rumors about your new teachers. Sometimes, they turn out true, and other times, they don’t. First days aren’t usually “first days,” just teacher introductions. Gah, I wish I had one more week…Please cross your fingers for me to have a very good first day! In case you are wondering, I’m going into my sophomore year of high school…

When school starts, I always say to myself, “Hey, at least you’ll have more books to read!” And it’s true! For today, I’m going to give away a SIGNED ARC of NIGHTSHADE–something for all of you guys going back to school to look forward too. It is a wonderful, wonderful book. Expect the review to come this month…and a trailer… ;D

To enter, just comment on this post with a short paragraph on the funniest thing that happened during this summer. If we get enough entries, I will pick from the funniest. If not, randomizer FTW. If our contest is THAT lonely, we’ll just open this up to extra entries…let’s see how it goes ­čśë I’ll leave this contest up until the end of the B2B special. Ends 09/13 midnight, California time

The funniest thing that happened to me this summer… Ahh this is a hard question, so much happened this summer.. Maybe the time I went up to a guy at the mall because I thought he was Justin Bieber. (: My friend was asking him for an autograph and screaming and it wasn't even him.(:

Funniest thing that happened to me is my little girl ran out of the dressing room at walmart and I had to chase her while I had no pants on through the store.

The best laugh was when my Mom and I were
planning a trip to Georgia and we were
having a hard time remembering the
names of the towns to research. We came
up with remembering them by saying
"Flakey" and "Kokomoki". We have a agreed
to come up with a new drink called the
"The Flakey Kokomoki". Lookout Jimmy B.

Well the funniest thing that happened this summer was I had some friends over and my 4 year old was sitting in my lap. One of my friends farted and my 4 year old jumped out of my lap, ran over to my friend and was trying to check the back of his pants all the while asking if my friend needed to change his diaper.

The funniest thing that happened to me was with my cat. We had a cricket get in the house and he found it. It would jump one way to get away from him and he would jump after it, same path. Then when he would go to swipe at it, it would jump back the other way. They did about 5 rounds of it and it was just the funniest thing to watch them jump the same paths back and forth.

The funniest thing had to be when I drove 10 hours with a friend to visit another friend who moved earlier that summer. It was one long, exhausting trip, but it was hilarious. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the movie 'Fear' but it has a young Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon in it. At one point, Marky Mark gives himself a homemade tattoo on his chest that says "Nicole 4 Eva." I'm not even kidding. Well, the friend we were visiting is named Nicole. Naturally, we went to the grocery store and had them write "Nicole 4 Eva" on a cookie cake and we surprised her with it. We then proceeded to watch "Fear," which is one of the funniest non-intentionally funny movie ever. We laughed hysterically and everyone else in the house looked at us like we were crazy. We then acted out the movie in a glass enclosed sunroom for most of the trip. It was one of the funniest things of the summer! Please go watch this movie with a group of friends and die laughing from the lines they use. So. Funny.

Well the funniest thing was probably when my manager and I walked into my office the other day and found a huge cricket eating a smaller one. It hollowed it out completely! Our reactions were unbelievably funny! First, we jumped back in disgust, then we stood there staring like it was a train wreck. Then, after it was nice and done, we chased it around my office with a trash can trying to kill it. We succeeded and then proceeded to laugh about it! Gross and hilarious! ­čÖé

One of the funniest things this summer happened one night when my son had a fire and invited friends over to roast hot dogs and smores while they set up to watch the meteor shower. We all set up chairs and waited for the meteors. Suddenly someone saw one and everyone would comment on if they saw it or not. One boy, just couldn't ever seem to see them. Every time someone would oooh about a falling star, that one boy would shout out, "Dang It!" At first it wasn't really funny, but after about 30 minutes or so of seeing meteors about every minute – It was a chorus of – "Ooh!" "Dang it!" "Ooh!" "Dang it!" followed by a few "switch places with me"s and a lot of "where are you looking"s. It got to the point where we were all laughing harder than we were looking! At the end of the night most of the boys had seen 40 -60 meteors and the one boy had only seen 3. It probably shouldn't have been funny – but even he was laughing.

Thanks for hosting – please enter me – I am an old follower.

The funniest thing this summer….hmmmm. I was out to eat with my friends and their son who just turned 3 years old. He is the most adorable little guy, doesn't know a stranger. He was telling the waitress everything whenever she would come to the table. He also has the habit of announcing nearly everything that pops into his head out loud (as do most 3 year olds, I suspect.) So we were just finishing our meals when he announces that he has to poop. As he is in the middle of potty training, this is a big deal. So his dad hurries up to get him up out of his chair to get moving. The waitress appears. The little guy says to her, "Don't worry. I'll be right back. I'm going poop." So off he goes with his dad to the bathroom, announcing to everyone that he is going poop. His mother just looked at me and shook her head as I laughed. (Meanwhile their 4 month old had just finished her bottle and decided it was time for a diaper change, too. Mom took her off to the bathroom saying to me — sarcastically of course — , "I'm so proud.")

The funniest thing that happened this summer would be on my way to Panacea with my parents and younger sister. We were riding through Tallahassee and I had my window down screaming at anyone on the side walk. There was the one man who literally jumped a foot in the air. I was saying all kind of funny things. It kept us laughing for the whole ride ­čśÇ Ahhh gotta love summertime!
