Funny Friday Photos

Sadly, I felt it best to take down the pics I had used this week, except for the one from Pyzam, as they say they are free and usable without copyright infringement.  Come back next week, though, because I've got some more pics I know are free, and funny!


It's Friday, again!  It's pretty calm in my neck of the prairie, which means it's going to get pretty hot!  I used to hate the year-round wind, until I realized it's a necessary evil in the summertime or I melt.

A few announcements before we get to today's pictures.  First, I'd like to say "Thank You!" and "Welcome!" to Donna Nolan and Pappa Anton.

I decided to do CampNaNoWriMo in August to get the first draft of Age of Stars done.  I've never done a NaNoWriMo before, so we'll see how this goes.  I've also never done a vomit draft before, and I'm wondering if I can turn off my inner editor for that long.  Just thinking about not going back and "fixing" things before moving on makes me jittery inside.


The 13th through the 17th of August I'll take some time off from NaNo-ing to hop around and participate in the Fairytale Madness Blogfest!  Leigh Covington, Mark Koopmans, Cassie Mae, and Morgan Shamy are hosting this fantastic hop. I haven't written anything yet, so I have no idea which Team (Plot Twist, Love Story, Tragedy, or Comic Relief) I'll end up on.  Click on any of the links above to learn more about it and to sign up!

Finally, I've been interviewed!  I totally jumped at the chance when Hope Roberson--in her capacity of interviewer for Falling for Fiction--asked me if I'd like to answer her fun questions.  If you'd like to know my answers, head over there today to read the whole interview.  The FFF blog has so many other interesting and helpful articles, don't be surprised if you stay a while.  Thanks so much, Hope!

And now, what you've been waiting for... the photos!  Last weeks winner for favorite photo was...

  1. Hey Lara, I'm hopping over from FFF, it's great to meet you. Your post had me laughing. I loved the cat perched on the guys head. LOL.

    Happy Friday!

  2. Hahahahahah!! Wet cats are the funniest thing EVER.

    Congrats on your interview, too. I'm liking your backdrop on your fish tank. I fed your fish. They were hungry!

    1. I'm glad you feed the fish, because you might be the only one who does! I can't get rid of them, though. I think they're fun and I love the background with them.

      The expression in the wet cat's eyes was hilarious!

  3. Donut seeds. I liked that.

    Quiet weekend for me. One child that's kinda feeling off (not quite sick, but not well), so probably won't do much.

    1. I'm sorry your child feels ill. I hope he/she feels better soon.

      When I saw the picture, I wondered why I never noticed the similarity. :)

  5. The donut seeds cracked me up. ;) You'll have to tell me how Camp NaNoWriMo goes! I can't fathom turning the inner editor off. I'd love to hear how it works for you! I'm off to check out your interview! ;)

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I'm nervous about Nano, but I figured I needed to do something to get a first draft done quickly! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  6. As a veteran nanoer through and through, I know you can do it ;) And uh, I always edit as I go anyway. If you're comfortable writing 2k a day then you totally owe yourself an edit if you want. (But I break a lot of nano rules, so uh.) Good luck!

    1. Thanks for the confidence, Hildred! I'm thinking I'll write the necessary words and then go back after the kids are asleep and tinker! Who knows, though. I might be ready to be done for the day after meeting the daily word count. Since I know you break Nano rules and the Nano police didn't lock you up, I'll feel more free to break some myself! :)

  7. OOH! Thanks for the shout-out Lara! I can't wait for the fest. I haven't written anything yet either. I really need to get going on it!

    Now I'm off to check out your interview! SQUEE!

    1. I'm excited for the blogfest, too! There's so many options for what to do that I seem to be stuck because I have to pick just one... :)

  8. I'm partial to Donut Seeds. And I like the saying about kids being people seeds.

    1. A teacher at my school has the people seeds sign on her door. Her mother made it for her. I thought it was so cute, and true!

  9. Hey Cabin Roomie!

    Vomit draft. Ew-- haha! Though I know the technique of "throwing up on the page," I've never heard it labeled that way before.

    "Just thinking about not going back and "fixing" things before moving on makes me jittery inside." I think everyone needs to try this once. It doesn't work for me b/c the mess disturbs me too much. How to put it? --I usually keep the "mess" in my head, so once I dump it on the paper, I feel like I need to keep referring to the paper to move forward, and I lose my train of thought. I think it's b/c I have taught myself to let go once I've typed something. I'm sure this is just a "me" quirk. This all means a lower word count for me when I write, but I also don't eliminate huge blocks later.

    Loved your "donut seeds." They're going on Pinterest.

    I'mma def going to check out the fairytale hop. Sounds intriguing.

    You are an awesome writer, Lara. Looking forward to reading your fairytale. :)

    1. Thanks so much for the compliment, D.D.! I hope I don't disappoint! It'd be great to have you join in - hint, hint!

      The not going back thing scares me because I don't want to have to cut a lot of things later. I'm hoping by doing a detailed plot outline, I'll have enough structure to just go. I do think it's worth trying once. :)

  10. I am SO loving that older lady crawling up the wall. That's me getting in the door of most bookstores or something.

    Good luck with nanowrimo!!

    1. Don't you wonder what the heck she was doing? The fact she climbed up that high is amazing, but what the heck was she thinking!
