I have an incredible guest today, but let me point out some important news first:
Voting for the A to Z Video Challenge is now open! Go HERE by Sunday to cast your vote. There were some awesome videos created!
I also have a guest post today at the A to Z Blog about making it easy for people to leave comments. If you are participating in the Challenge, be sure to read it.
Brinda Berry’s new book, Whisper of Memory (Whispering Woods #2), is available now! She’s throwing a party today at her BLOG with a giveaway - a Kindle Fire. You can purchase the book HERE and view the trailer HERE. Congratulations, Brinda!
Now, it is with great honor I turn over my blog to my good blogger buddy and master of words, Roland Yeomans. Some of you read his amusing tales of me being kidnapped by aliens, which I greatly appreciated. He is also holding a giveaway for a Spock bear. So without any further words from this simple writer, let me turn it over to the master…
Ghost of Mark Twain, here …
Roland was all set to guest post here at Alex’s electronic newspaper in honor of the man’s CassaFire, but I strolled by with the Borg Queen, and the two of them lit a shuck out of here.
And wouldn’t you know it? That dang fickle gal raced after them with the darndest come-on from a female I ever heard : “Resistance is futile.” For a bald filly she sure is certain of her sex appeal.
Guess I’ll have to fill in for Roland and tell you folks some facts about how to live that I learned from his dang sci fi films.
1.) If you find an ancient space ship trapped in the ice, children, you might just want to leave it there.
2.) If you're trapped in an Antarctic research station where things have gotten strange, and one of your colleagues keeps asking to see you privately. Bake him something. Like him … with a flamethrower.
3.) If your usual screaming mother-in-law becomes Valium Vickie, inviting you to her garden to see her crop of pods, shoot her. Even if she isn’t a pod person, you’ll still feel good about it.
4.) If you decide to cut open your tauntaun to keep yourself from turning into a man-sicle, it's probably best to keep that from the tauntaun until the very last minute.
5.) When you and other survivors stagger out of a spaceship of horrors, and the father says to his child “You’re safe now.” Duck.
6.) When the Super-Winter comes, and everyone else is burning books to stay warm? All that gloating you did about how awesome your Kindle is will come back to haunt you.
7.) Remember my advice about ancient space ships trapped in Antarctic ice? Goes double for pyramids.
Roland’s books are available on Amazon, including The Legend of Victor Standish, French Quarter Nocturne, and his latest, The Rival.
Know any of the movies he described? Want to win a stuffed Spock bear? (Sorry, matching Kirk bear sold separately.) Read any of Roland’s books? (They Call Me Tombs was cool!) Ready for the A to Z Challenge?And are you stoked for the iPad 3? Mine arrives today...
Don’t forget to visit the A to Z Blog today! Be a shame to work so hard on A to Z posts and no one comments…
