Follow Friday (10) and Book Blogger Hop (10)

 Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee.

This week's topic is: In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythological creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

Dragons! Not the evil ones of really old stories, but the ones with personalities like in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles or Eragon.

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books.

This week's topic is: Non-book-related question this week! Do you have a pet?

Oh yes, I have a pet. Or rather, pets. At my house, we have seven goats named Lily, Holly, Mimsy, Daisy, Zephyr (also called Twiggy), and Zinnia. We also have four cats who go by the names of Kindle, Cricket, and Fritz. There has been so much debate over our little black kitten's name that he doesn't have one yet, but people are leaning towards Zorro. Added to that, we have a giant Schnoodle named Brodie who thinks he is a lapdog. Out of this plethora of beasts, Mimsy the goat and Cricket the cat are mine. My poor Cricket is a lovely little cat with orange and grey and white markings, six toes on her paws and only half a tail. She is extremely skittish after some bad experiences with dogs who wanted to play tug-of-war and the engine belt in my dad's work truck.

If you think that is a lot of animals, you should have seen it back when we had twice the goats, another dog and another cat.


  1. Hopping through. I like the idea of dragons but I haven't read enough dragon books. Nice dragons would be important.
