A Conversation (But There’s a Payoff Contest, too)

I was late getting to bed last night because I was zipping around Twitter, reading about zombies and a contest, and spreading the news about such. I related that fact to the Beneficent Mr. Hall and he said, “I’m going to twit.”

Whereupon I felt compelled to correct him (so that others would not consider him a twit).

“It’s tweet,” I said.

“I thought it was called Twitter,” he said.

“It is,” I said, “But it’s tweet.”

“That makes no sense at all. It should be twit. I’ll twit to you.”

I could see this conversation getting caught in one of those annoying loops so I moved on.

“What’s your username going to be? You have to sign up and get a name if you’re going to tweet.”

“I have a name,” he said. “It’s Boogerface McGee 8.”

“Why the 8?”

“Because there were already seven Boogerface McGees.”

I suppose if you ask a stupid question…anyway, it occurred to me that old Boogerface McGee 8 was right. He’ll be twitting.

Now, the contest I promised you. Wanna win a Kindle? The lovely founders of Writer Unboxed are kicking off their new site, Reader Unboxed, with a lovely and splendiferous contest where you can win a Kindle and a gift card. That’s pretty awesome, huh? Reader Unboxed looks to be pretty awesome, too. So zip over there and give both a look-see.

You should probably know that I’ve already signed up and I’m feeling pretty lucky. Plus, I’m getting Boogerface McGee 8 to sign up, too, doubling my chance to win. Of course, he’ll have to figure out that whole twitting thing first. (But fingers crossed that he’s smarter than he…sounds.)

Oops! Forgot to mention my book giveaway! ANY comment this month, on any post, with the word BOOk in it will count in my All Hallow’s Read giveaway. On October 31st, I’ll give out a couple spooky books from my personal stash of creepy. And seriously? I found some pretty creepy stuff. Like Ann Rice’s Servant of the Bones. *Shudders while typing.*

  1. In all fairness, Debra, Indy is a pretty smart dog.Consider yourself thrown into the BOOk pile. I think I have a few middle grade books, too. Maybe I'll mention the contest over at Finders and Keepers? Give someone a chance to win Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Which is TOTALLY scary reading. *shudders while typing*Oh, wait. That shudder's because Boogerface McGee 8 is calling me to lunch. Talk about scary! πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for the belly laughs. Sadly, visiting your blog to guffaw is the only real exercise I've had all day, but that's okay, because you gave my abs a work out. Too. Funny. Hehehe…Oh, yeah….book, book, book! )

  3. Exercise is good…(falling out of the bed because you're laughing way too hard, not so much. :-)But I'm glad you had a few laughs, Lisa. You won't be laughing if you win a scary book! (I wonder if screaming uses ab muscles???)

  4. I promise, I will even read the book if I win. I mentioned the word BOOK, twice now!Plus, you will save on postage if I win. By the way, what is the book (third time) really about? Actually, I love books (#4) that I know nothing about. Books (5) are my life. As you well know I love books (6) so much it's takes months for me to read one. I like to savor each book (lost count).Yours truly,Booger Face McGee (not # 7) but number 8.

  5. Oh, Boogerface McGee 8…you know these books have big, big words, right? There are even some four syllable ones!So sorry. (And Blogger called…something about folks named Boogerface commenting on blogs? Apparently, that's not allowed, either. Truly sorry.)

  6. Oh my goodness. I'm laughing so hard. I think Booger Face McGee #8 must take the stage on your blog more often. Too funny. I'm just now catching up on three weeks' worth of blogs (well over 1000 posts) and this one is the funniest so far. Good stuff. Old Booger Face is OK in my BOOK. πŸ™‚
