Week 2

1) Unfairly grounded by his parents, Jason decides to lie to them so he can go to the audition in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, not only does the audition end poorly but his parents discover his lie and things go downhill from there. Tell us the most outrageous lie you've ever been caught in. Bonus points if you can provide pictorial proof. Reenactments eagerly accepted.

Uhh… I was never caught in a big lie (thank God!) I was kicking myself for that lie though… I know I shouldn’t have done that! In my defense, I wasn’t going to let my friends go alone… anyways My parents never knew J
Then of course I was always caught when someone asks “Do you like him?” and I go “Noooo” *Turns red, laughs and stares at everything but the other person*
Mom always caught the little lies, I guess I don’t try too hard with them… but she ignores them so no problem there :P

2) In Faerie, Aoide is summoned to see the Faerie Queen. Have you ever met someone important like the Faerie Queen? Someone famous? Tell us the story behind how it happened. Once again, pictures are a plus!

I met ¾ of my fav band
J so to me, they’re like the Faerie Queen. I met them thanks to my stalking abilities LOL I was outside their hotel for days, I was bound to get a picture with them at some point!
Pictures are somewhere locked in my hard-drive though, my computer died and my info is locked.

3) Caught lying to his father about his non-existent job at the car wash, Jason has now found gainful employment at Buddy McSlawburger's - where he's forced to wear "the funny hat" as part of his uniform. What's the worst job you've ever had? Did it involve a particularly noxious uniform? Tell us about it - in riveting, full-color detail!

I had awesome jobs so far. And none uniforms really. A few years back I worked in kids birthdays so I only had to wear a black t-shirt with the name of the company. And I love working with kids so I had lots of fun and no voice the following day.
And The last job I has was as a bartender so I didn’t have to wear any uniforms plus I get to get people drunk for a living… FUN!

4) In an effort to regain their stolen instruments, Aoide and Rhodia travel to the sugar swamp to hire a hunter. Wouldn't you love to live somewhere where the water is sweet and the grass is made of sugar cane? Show us a picture of you enjoying your favorite sweet treat. Or, rewrite history and tell us how your version of the sugar swamp would differ from the one in the book.

COFFE! ICE CREAM! (I’m the one in the middle – friends can’t see this :P)
But yes, I'd love to live somewhere where the water is sweet and the grass is made of sugar cane... YUM!

Fairy Blues
Songs Of Magic #2
J.L. Bryan
The sequel to Fairy Metal Thunder.

With their enchanted instruments charming the crowds, the Assorted Zebras attract interest from record producers, and soon they’re off to cut their first album and music video. Jason and his friends don’t know they’ve just become pawns in a sinister plot by a cabal of evil fairies...

Meanwhile, Aoide and her band pursue a new strategy for regaining their stolen instruments, one that will take them into the most haunted region in Faerie.


  1. Great stalking! Glad you got to meet part of your favorite band. Woo For no uniforms! A logo t-shirt isn't bad.I had to wear one for my first job but I could wear jeans with it so it was cool. I love Starbucks coffee and I love ice cream!
    My Answers

  2. Yess! I was very happy to meet them. And wohoo no uniforms for you too :)
    Those two things are a must in life :D

  3. Awe! You are such a good friend, willing to risk you parents' wrath just to make sure your friends don't go off alone. Great pictures. Looks like you have fun when you are with your friends.

    1. I do, they're all crazy so it's never a dull moment with them :D

  4. I loves me some ice cream. Chocolate is actually my favorite, but ice cream all around is made of awesome.

    LOL! I'm trying to think back to see if I got caught in the "do you like" him lie. I'm pretty sure I did, but I don't blush, so that's a plus for me. I've been studiously working on my poker face. I hate being caught in a lie. Not that I really do it, but sometimes I may not be fully forthcoming. ;)
