FAQ: Search Term Bingo

I was just browsing the various search terms people have used to find my blog. I suspect many of them went away without knowing the answers they were seeking, so here is a post that attempts to remedy that for at least some of them.

isla vs cassandra

In a battle between myself and the main character of Isla’s Inheritance, she would win. As well as having Powerz (TM), she’s also seventeen and spry. I am not seventeen. Nor am I spry.

I checked with the author and it already is. Here ya go!

“Love Bomb”

cassandra’s lazy style

How kind of you to notice. My hair is brought to you by bobby pins and a pony tail. My clothes are courtesy of “whatever jeans I can find that fit my epic shortness”, and “the internet for cool geek t-shirts”. Currently I’m wearing a Minecraf t-shirt courtesy of Threadless (see right).

girl smoking sexy

I’m unclear due to the lack of grammar, but if you’re asking me if I think girls smoking is sexy, the answer is no. Eau de ashtray is not for me.

Here she is.

grammar joke

“The past, the present and the future walked into a bar. It was tense.”

poem about a me and my dog with adverbs

Here you go:

I quickly walk my dog
He swiftly jumps a log
Hurriedly fetching a stick
I carelessly gave the flick
It’s covered in his spit
He doesn’t give a–

Ok, and that’s my daily allocation of adverbs consumed. I’ll have to finish it another time.

i follow the rules

Me too. Mostly.

words to edit out of a novel heard

That’s a pretty good suggestion to add to my list of words to be wary of, actually. Why say,

“I heard an eagle shriek.”

“The eagle shrieked.”

Good job, you!

play your cards right hashtag

May I suggest #PlayYourCardsRight?

grow out your hair

I tried but it didn’t work. Really, I tried for about ten years! I just had it cut back to shoulder length and it’s much healthier and more managable. Thanks for the advice, though.
