FRIENDLY - A to Z Challenge - and Next Blogfest!!!

It’s the third A to Z Challenge! Blog the letters of the alphabet in order every day except Sundays The participation list is HERE - start with the blog after yours and visit at least five blogs a day. Mostly, make new friends and have fun!

My theme – I have selected a word for each day and will present to you blogger buddies who fit that description, along with movies, music, etc. My theme is to give back, highlight some awesome bloggers, and have fun in the process.

FRIENDLY

Talli Roland You’ve probably heard me rave about the cutest Canadian English girl on the Internet. But the ‘cute’ extends far past Talli’s appearance. She is a genuine friend to all. You will feel welcome the moment you visit her blog. (And she often serves wine!) This woman cannot possibly have any enemies, and I envy that. Talli is the real deal – an awesome author and pure joy to know!

Kathy at Life on the Muskoka River
This Canadian lass is about as friendly as they come. I don’t think she knows a stranger. If she thinks she doesn’t know you well enough, she’ll dig until she does! Her blog is warm and welcome place, and she regularly features “Letters from a Friend.” Positive and upbeat, Kathy brings a lot of sunshine to the blogging world.

Psych
I’m taking a few liberties and changing friendly to friendship. This hilarious show centers on the friendship of Shawn and Gus as they run their Psychic Detective agency. It’s one of the few shows I enjoy watching over and over. Check it out if you want to brighten up your day.

Ninja News

We’ve been waiting for the cover reveal and release date – and surprise, Michael Offutt’s Slipstream is available now! Go check it out and be watching in May when he kicks off his blog tour here.

My awesome Challenge co-host Jeremy will have a new book out as well soon - Retro-Zombie: Art & Words. Will keep you posted…

And the big news!

It’s been a long time coming… You remember the Movie Dirty Dozen, the Top Ten TV Shows, the Top Ten Countdown, the It’s All Fun and Games, and the Worst Movies Ever blogfests – well now it’s time for a new blogfest.



First Loves Blogfest - on May 14, post your first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest!

Sign up below


Following Talli and Cathy? Watch Psych? Who would you say is friendly? And are you ready for another blogfest? Did I surprise you? Bet you’re thinking of firsts already…

Oh my gosh, I'm the first one here.

The Happy Whisk said...

I'm gonna post again, just so I can be the first and second person.

I agree about Talli. I don't know her, but I find her to be genuine.

And that's a cool thing.

Cassie Mae said...

I'm loving your spotlights. What a great way to meet some more peeps!

And signing up for your blogfest. Can't wait!

Laura Barnes said...

What are you doing to us? Another blogfest?? I'm exhausted thinking about it. :)

oceangirl said...

I love Psych - God, if I could spell it. But it is not on our TV anymore. It will come back on later I hope.

The blogfest is interesting. I think I am looking forward to it.

S. L. Hennessy said...

I'm having so much fun with A-Z, I might as well get ready for the next blog fest. Already looking forward to First Loves!

And Psych is the best. The chemistry between the two main characters is brilliant. A definite favorite.

Talli Roland said...

Aw, Alex! *blush* Thank you so much - what a great way to start the day. The feeling is mutual, my friend. :) Wine for all!

Rachel Morgan said...

Two Canadian lasses! And a cool blogfest! Looking forward to it :-)

Donna Hole said...

How do I get sucked into these blogfests? Hmm, the linky tool is not working for me. I'll try again later.

Friendly is a sweet word. Love the bloggers you mentioned.

Awesome blogfest Alex. I've not had the time to enter one for ages and yours are always so straightforward and uncomplicated. I'm in!

Denise

Li said...

Great picks (again) for bloggers. Don't know if I want to reveal my first love though - who knows, he might be reading my blog! ;-)

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful post Alex, True about Talli, are you being cruel thinking about another blogfest?

Have a good day.

Yvonne.

Charmaine Clancy said...

Haven't seen that Psych, but looks good, will have to watch.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Talli, you're welcome!

Donna, glad the Linky list finally worked.

Kyra, it seems good now.

I can't find my name on the A-Z list and it makes a Calvin cry.

Laura Eno said...

Cathy is the friendliest! I think she said once that she's an introvert but I can't believe that at all!

Mina Burrows said...

I'm so excited for Michael! And his cover is killer too.

Love Psych & heading over to visit Talli now.

Happy Easter!

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

When you mentioned I should drop by today for the letter F, I thought for SURE you were going to mention me and that "feck" word I so often employ!!!!! Imagine my surprise to see myself under "friendly."
Awwwww, so nice you are, Mr. Nija, and so doubly nice to be mentioned along with Tali.
Hugs to you all and, I've got to say, I am having a BLAST on this A to Z tour!!!! Thanks so much for your always-enthusiastic involvement.
(I am an introvert, Laura - only it's easy to be brave behind a computer!)

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

Ninja, not Nija. Sigh.

Gail said...

I'm too forgetful to remember my first anything

Rusty Webb said...

Psych is my favorite show. I think my DVR is full because of them. Friendly people are awesome.

Christine Rains said...

Talli is wonderful. My guesses about your blogfest didn't come near that one! Cool idea. Have a great weekend and happy Easter! :)

Annalisa Crawford said...

I've signed up to the new blogfest! I love it - I already know what's going on mine. Oh boy, this is going to be embarrassing!

Anna Smith said...

Can't wait for the fest, already picked my firsts! Is the link to Life on the Muskoka River not working? It wont let me through :)

Jackie said...

Yay for blogfests! I signed up! A blogger friend and I will be doing a "firsts" blogfest, too, in June or July. Ours will be aimed toward WIP. :D

Liz Fichera said...

Good choices on the friendlies!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

CM, sorry!!!

Thanks, Jamie.

Cal, did you sign up?

Laura, I don't believe it!!

Cathy, you are most welcome! Glad you are having fun. And I do agree about the introvert part - easier to hide that online.

Christine, hope you like my idea!

Annalisa, probably no more than my choices.

Anna, I'll check it.

Jackie, that sounds good!

Stephen Tremp said...

Another Blofgest? Of course I follow Talli. I haven't been to Kathy's blog in a while though. Lover her banner! Psych is fun to watch. I'll catch it late at night if I have trouble sleeping. Its a bit off but in the right way.

Journaling Woman said...

I been to Talli's neck of the woods but not Kathy's blog.

Teresa

Danielle B. said...

I love Psych! So funny.

Totally signed up for the "Firsts" blogfest!

I should just dedicate my blog to blogfests.

Marta Szemik said...

I've been meaning to watch Psych. Think I will give it a try.
Signed up for the blogfest - couldn't resist this one. Sweating a little because I still keep in touch with my first (though he doesn't read my blog I'm sure. Phew!).

soggy in the corner said...

could not resist the Muskoka river blog. thanks!

Susanne Drazic said...

Yep, both Talli and Cathy have cool blogs.

I've seen commercials for Psych, but they've never really grabbed my interest. Maybe I'll check out an episode, just to see what it is really like.

Jules said...

Well I know Talli, will have to check out Cathy. Happy Easter Captain. :)

Gossip_Grl said...

I don't watch Psych, but nice blog fest on remembering the firsts.

Civil War Horror (Sean McLachlan) said...

Retrozombie is a fun blog! He's got an interesting take on the A to Z Challenge too.

Julie Dao said...

I heart Talli something fierce! She's such a great blogger friend!

Brinda said...

Great shoutouts to fellow bloggers and I've never heard of that show. The upcoming blogfest sounds like a lot of fun.

Glynis said...

Talli is my idol! I am her stalker! Great post, Alex. You do keep busy! :)

Jeremy said...

I have never watched Psych. I decided to sign up for the blogfest!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Talli is very friendly.

Heather M. Gardner said...

I do follow Talli. I now follow Kathy.

Psych is one of those shows that I don't know how we lived without. I feel like I know them. I feel like we were all in school together. I get all their jokes. Love.

I love your blogfest idea! Thanks for giving us plenty of time to remember all those things that happened SO long ago!
Heather

Joshua said...

First loves? I might have to pick something other than a person since The Wife reads my blog. Just to avoid any discussions about it.

Miranda Hardy said...

Oh boy! Now, I'll have to break out those stored memories I've been hiding for so long. Lol

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex .. great para about Talli - and I'd definitely agree with you - have just met Kathy .. so we'll meet up at times ..Muskoka River sounds a wonderful place to live ..

Enjoy the First Loves BlogFest - like the logo .. clever .. not for me though .. cheers Hilary

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephen, I just dig the maniacal energy of the show.

Danielle, that's not a bad thing!

Susanne, you need to.

Happy Easter, Jules!

Glynis, I'm sure she appreciates the stalking!

Jeremy, thanks!

Heather, I get all of the jokes as well.

Joshua, you could always select your mother...

Erin M. Hartshorn said...

Love Psych!

Erin

Tonja said...

I don't like Psych. And I'm swearing off blogfests (after this one) until I get my current WIP done. Have a great Easter.

Ciara said...

Yay, Michael!!! I'm so excited for him. I ordered the book yesterday. Okay, am I the only one having issues with the lists? I can't use the A to Z list, and I can't sign up for the hop. I'm finally able to blog today. Ugh, frustrated. Maybe that should have been my theme for F today. Nope, I like the happy theme better. :) Happy Friday!

Jemi Fraser said...

Another great blogfest!!!

Great choices for friendly - those are 2 of the sweetest people around!

Karen Walker said...

Phooey, I'm going to be on vacation then, Alex. Darn.
Karen

Robyn Campbell said...

I love Talli!!!! She's the bomb. Congrads to Michael! Yay.

Psych IS AWESOME. Absolutely HILARIOUS.

The blogfest was quite the surprise. I thought as I scrolled, what are those names doing there. Uh-huh. :-)

A Daft Scots Lass said...

I'm in, Ninja

LynnRush said...

I'm in!!!!

Oh, and I loved Psych. I only saw a few episodes, but what I saw I LOVED> And Munk. Oh man. Lie To Me is awesome, too. Really helps me with my writing--so it's research. Yeah, that's it.

Arlee Bird said...

I'll have to think on those firsts--that's a long time ago!

I'm not even sure I can remember those first loves. Other than the person, of course.

Nancy Thompson said...

Yes! I know both Cathy & Talli! Still, I need to go visit them again. I haven't been a great neighbor in that respect. And I'll definitely check out Michael & Jeremy's books. Can't say I've ever been drawn to Psyche. But your newest blogfest sounds like a blast! I've already signed up. And lastly, thanks again for the generous mention yesterday! I had lots of new visitors because of it. You're the best, Alex! Still crushin'!

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I have several of those categories already thought out. Great idea - can't wait!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Talli rocks, indeed. I think that after A to Z, I'll be taking May off. lol

Maurice Mitchell said...

Alex, some great blogs and news. I'll have to think hard for the blogfest
@Arlee It feels like a long time to me too.

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

I think it's cool that your Ninja News headline appears on a throwing star. Thanks for the shout out sir Alex.

Matthew MacNish said...

I've been postponing so many things I think I'm booked for May!

Rekha Seshadri said...

Is having a first love as in person necessary for the blogfest, I just married the guy my parents chose for me (with my consent of course)?
Slip stream will have to wait, just bought Creepy Hollow, Open Minds and Breakthrough...then there is Cassafire, CH 2 and some Indian books to buy.
Its raining Books in blogland that's all I can say.
Your buddies are lucky to be thus embellished in cyber space.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Ciara, I think Linky Tools was having issues earlier.

Sorry, Karen!

Robyn, no one suspected this blogfest - ha ha ha!

Lee, sorry if it makes anyone's brain hurt.

Nancy, thank you!!!

Donna, no you won't.

Maurice, hope you join us.

Michael, you're welcome. yeah, thought it was time the Ninja News needed a logo.

Thank you, Rekha! And it doesn't have to be romantic - could be a parent or sibling.

Lady Gwen said...

I haven't visited Talli in a while - I will have to drop in soon. Hmmm, a lot of firsts there not sure I remember.....

D.G. Hudson said...

You always seem to have something happening here, Alex.

I'm considering the new blogfest, but I have to decide how much I want to divulge. Or should I give the fantasy version?

Is this a therapy group?

Leovi said...

FRIENDLY, lovely word, I think it is the second comment but I love and is ideal for this challenge.

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Yay for the Canadians! I'm a Canadian living in the UK too, (since I was two) and would agree that Canadians are so Friendly.
I love the sound of your blogfest. I may have to join in witht his one. I will definitely sidebar it.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Cool new blogfest! Totally not what I expected, but I like it!

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...

PSYCH ROCKS!!!
and you TOTALLY surprised me with this blogfest!

Rick Daley said...

I like your theme. You do well in supporting other writers / bloggers, it's great to see help and support in a society that makes it so easy to live each day as a jaded cynic like myself!

Alexandra Heep said...

Not sure if I am ready for another blog fest as my first love is music, and at times was my only love.

I already blog about that ad nauseum. I can always find more to say about it, but if people want to read it is another question!

Johanna Garth said...

Following Talli but now I'm going to go follow Cathy too!

J.C. Martin said...

I'm in! Hve your blogfest button on my sidebar now! :)

Yes, Talli s one of the sweetest bloggers I know! Her posts are always so uplifting, and she always makes an effort to respond to your comments. Can't wait to meet her in person in September at the Festival of Writing, where she'll be speaking.

Going to go check out Cathy's blog now.

Andrew Leon said...

Love the Psych! It's one of the things I do together with my kids.

Joshua said...

Something tells me THAT wouldn't go over well either.

L.G.Smith said...

Canadians are so friendly. Hey, I'm sitting in Toronto right now waiting for my connection, and the people are very nice...except for those customs people. Mean.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

DG, you could go fantasy - have fun with it!

Madeleine, thank you!

Tyrean, I try not to be too predictable.

Vic, I think I surprised everyone.

Rick, you're not cynical.

JC, thanks. And so cool you get to meet Talli!!!

Joshua, a pet maybe? They usually think they are people anyway.

LG, sorry!

Laura said...

oohhh! Wxciting times. Must go buy Michael's book... Talli's the best, I was lucky enough to meet her last year... and WOOHOO! Love your new fest - I'm in
Lxxx

Jay Noel said...

Psych is a great show. Ever see the one where they do a parody of American Idol? Gus as Michael Jackson...oh man, I'm laughing just thinking about it. Everytime I hear Tears for Fears' "Shout," I think about Psych now.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Great idea for a blogfest. I'm in, of course. And I just LOVE the banner!

Lauren S. said...

I love Psych. Such a funny show. The friendship between Shawn and Gus is great - they seem more like brothers at times. :)

Suze said...

Al, I really like the idea for your next blogfest. I'm in.

And I also think Talli is super duper.

Clarissa Draper said...

I've signed up! Also, just bought Slipstream and can't wait to read it.

Emily said...

I LOVE Psych. I think it is one of the most underrated shows. It is hilarious.

Elana Johnson said...

Great idea for a blogfest. I've often seen Psych on Netflix, but haven't watched it yet. I need to get in on that action.

And perfect picks for friendly!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

You're killing me, Alex. I can't resist signing up.
Talli is wonderful. I watch Psych sometimes and always enjoy it.

Carol Kilgore said...

Yea for Talli!
Happy Easter :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Laura, thanks!

Jay, yes! I've seen every episode two or three times.

George, glad you're on for this one!

Lauren, they argue like brothers as well.

Suze and Clarissa, thanks!

Elana, you have to watch it.

Susan, you know you want to!

Cate Masters said...

Cool idea for a blogfest! I'm in.
Congrats to Michael! Off to check out your links.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I have actually watched Psych and fully agree. It's a great dose of comedy for kids and adults. Nice to know quality TV still exists.

Happy weekend, Alex.
xoRobyn

cleemckenzie said...

I do follow Talli. Have to get around to a few more!!!! and follow as well.

You do such a great job spotlighting your followers. Enjoy what you have to say about them.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

PS This is, as always, a great post. Thanks for pointing out so many great bloggers. I'm about to check out Kathy's blog (already a Talli fan), and am contemplating joining the blogfest. It's a great idea.

xoRobyn

TerryLynnJohnson said...

thanks so muc for the blog links! I hadn't known about the Muskoka blog - and I'm from there!
We saw Wrath of the Titans last week and LOVED it despite the trashing it got in reviews. Good clean fun!

~Sia McKye~ said...

I do follow Talli and she is friendly and helpful.

ANother blogfest? Well at least it's only one day. I'm in!

Patsy said...

Just about all bloggers I've come across are friendly people!

Tracy Jo said...

I love Talli! She rules. Aaaaah....first loves. :-) Looking forward to the blogfest! Happy Friday!

Jessica Salyer said...

I know Talli and now I'n heading over to meet Kathy. Signing up for the blogfeast also. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cate, thanks!

Robyn, Pysch is just all kinds of awesome. And please join us!

Terry, I might not see it in the theaters but I'll probably buy the DVD and watch the 3D from the safety of my home.

Thanks, Sia!

Tracy and Jessica, thanks!

Kittie Howard said...

The Blogger glitch must have been on my end as half of your blog didn't load earlier. Wish I had a bit of your energy -- will have to pass on the fest, sorry.

Carrie Butler said...

I love Talli! :) I'll check out Kathy's blog right after this. Oh, and count me in for the First Loves Blogfest. Have a great weekend, Alex!

M Pax said...

I had the pleasure of bumping into Cathy during AtoZ. Talli I knew. Will have to check out Psych.

Cool idea for a blogfest.

Shannon Lawrence said...

You selected two perfect ladies for the word friendly! I love Psych! I had one episode DVR'd so I could watch one specific scene over and over again, because it made me laugh so hard I'd cry. Sadly, I lost it when we ditched satellite.

Stephanie Allen said...

What a cool idea, to spotlight people! I'll have to go check out both of their blogs!

And, regrettably, I haven't watched Psych at all. But clearly I need to.

klahanie said...

Hi Alex,
Yes, it's me, Gary who and I quote our friend Lee, one of the fine hosts of this alphabet challenge, "You have been appointed as the official anti-A to Z spokesman." Well, my good friend, despite my good natured, sometimes satirical postings on the challenge, I really do wish you and all those involved, the very best with it all. To embrace the ethos, to make new friends, within a sharing, caring blogging community, is a most profound and positive result.
I'm liking your Canadian theme here, eh. Then again, I would say that. What with me being a Canadian living in England and having such fun with the lost in translation, differences.
May you and all of your many friends who have the great pleasure in visiting your superb and interactive site, have a peaceful, positive Easter and much happy writing in the challenge.
With respect and kind wishes, your way, Gary

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kittie, sorry you had problems!

Thanks, Carrie!

Mary, glad you are on board!

Shannon, no!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gary, thank you very much and have a blessed Easter!

Julie said...

Oh I know Talli but Kathy is new to me, sounds like a great blog. Great idea for a blogfest, and congrats to Michael and Jeremy. I love Jeremy's artwork.

Happy Easter Alex!

Sonia Lal said...

Oh I like the Psych show. It's pretty good.

Cool blogfest and you know I had to sign up, Mr. Pied Piper Ninja. ;) I wonder how I will ever choose a first film. There's so many. ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Julie, Jeremy is awesome.

Melissa, it will be tough.

Thanks everyone!

kmckendry said...

I love Talli, she's great! I'll have to check out Kathy's blog.
Looking forward to the new blogfest! Yippee!

RaShelle Workman said...

I enjoy the TV show Psyche alot. The two MC's crack me up. =D

Spacerguy said...

I must be emotionally unstable, brilliant, sensitive, vain and paranoid! LOL. I'm afraid to sign up! Hehe.

Martha said...

Ack! I tried to sign up but the linky thingie is telling me I'm already signed up!

Ella said...

Thanks Alex for giving us a few weeks to recover from this one ;D

Psyche cracks me up! I think I will go watch it now~

Talli is great, off to check out the other links!

Most everyone I have met in blogland is friendly! A-Z blogging people are the friendliest! :D

Rebekah Loper said...

Awesome idea for a blogfest, can't wait for it!

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

I've had to stop drinking while reading Kathy's posts because I tend to spit out what's in my mouth. She's great!

Patricia Stoltey said...

I can't even imagine how you have the energy to start working on another blogfest while we're still in the early stages of A to Z. Alex, you're a superman.

Michael Pierce said...

Thanks, Alex! Having a blast with the A-Z challenge so far. what a wonderful way to plan for the future and look forward to May. It'll be a fun theme!

Jennee Thompson said...

Yay! I love psych and can't wait for the next bloghop!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Martha, are you on there? Let me know if I need to fix something.

Ella, they are the friendliest!

Jaycee, that's funny.

Patricia, I just plan ahead...

Thank you, everyone!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Wow! That was really sweet! Thank you Alex!!!!

Cat Lavoie said...

Totally agree about Talli! She's awesome! :) I'll be sure to check out Kathy's blog as well!

Martha said...

I am on there Alex, but have no idea how my link got there before I tried to put it there. Guess I was just meant to be a part of this blogfest! Have a great weekend :)

Rachna Chhabria said...

I know I am a bit late on this post, but I wanted to tell you that I like this idea of the new bloggers you are introducing us to.

SA Larsenッ said...

As always, a great representation for the letter F and another exciting blogfest! I'll sign up!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Martha, I can't explain it either!

Thanks, Rachna.

Shari, thanks!

Anglers Rest said...

Just signed up!

Cherie Reich said...

Very cool blogfest! I'll have to see what I have planned around that date and whether or not I have the time to sign up. :)

And I LOVE Psych. Seriously one of my favorite shows.

moondustwriter said...

smart to use the momentum from one blogfest to powerup another
hope others look for ways to keep people engaged
I will be traveling for pleaseure and for my novel so will have to pass

Karen Peterson said...

Sounds like a fantastic blog hop!

Lisa said...

Sounds like fun. Just signed up! How do I get the logo to put on my blog?

MOCK! said...

Psych is my FAVORITE show on TV. Don't get USA but it is always available ON DEMAND and we buy each season...Castle could take lessons on how to bring the leads "together" and still make a good show...

Dafeenah said...

Yay a new blogfest. A small request though? Post a reminder a couple days before. My brain tends to wander off when dates are so far in advance. With everyone posting daily I'm falling even farther behind in my reading. I use to have tues and thurs to catch up on people's posts now I can't read anyone. :( But you're all in my thoughts..

tfwalsh said...

Ohh very nice new blogfest... I'm in:)

Justine Dell said...

Wow...over 100 comments and it's only 8:30. YOU ROCK!

I <3 Talli.
I <3 Ninjas.
I <3 You.

Seriously though, LOVE the blogest! Since I'm a romance gal at heart...this is totally up my alley! YEAH!

~JD

Grazona said...

This is my first Blogfest, I'm nervous! Maybe I've missed this but is it to be one post or four different ones?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Grazola, all on one day.

SA Larsenッ said...

GACK!! Just check the list. Did I not sign up? I have a post and all. Going to sign up now. (If you find me twice, let me know. Thx.)

Nikki said...

Ooh lots of nice things for me to look at, thank you :) That blogfest looks fun, I have exams but I might join :D

Barbara said...

Yeey! I'm in! That's right - if you failed miserably in one challenge - what do you do - Enter another oneeee!!!

Ok, so all these firsts are to be in one post?? O.o yes, I got the answer a few comments above :P

See you there!

Arlee Bird said...

Okay, I've succumbed. I have a hard time resisting these things. I must be a glutton for punishment. After this one I'm done for a while. Well, unless someone comes along with something I just can't resist.
Maybe we should have a sleepfest.

Hi Alex! I wanted to let you know I signed up for the Blogfest, but my name isn't showing up? Can I do it again or will that screw it up? Hmmmm???

I will be seeing Dark Shadows...it certainly will be different from the TV show I watched as a kid! I haven't seen the Avengers yet but I think next week will the time.

I linked into to the blogfest...the pull was too strong!

What a great idea. Thanks for the opportunity not only to blog but to meet other bloggers! This should be fun. Already took me waaaay down memory lane and wow, what a trip!

Have been reading everyone else new blogfest! Pretty cool!

After two days of blogging I finally got through reading everyones first loves. This was so much fun! I was amazed to see a lot of similarities.

Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Indiana Jones, The Last Unicorn, and Dirty Dancing came up often.
