Week Two

Questions for Chapters 7-13 of Fairy Metal Thunder:
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.

When I was in school couples were common and I lied and said I had a boyfriend.  I really was not dating and had to read a lot to keep up with the language others were using. It was hard to keep up the lie.  I did not believe in sex before marriage and if I had a bundling board like shown in the picture, I would have used it when I visited my husband before we got married.

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!  
Clayton Moore played the Lone Ranger for many years.  When a movie was made without him as the star, he was not allowed to wear his mask.  Corning provided sunglasses for him to wear.  They invited him to Corning, NY.  We went there to see him and after the parade we got to meet him up close.  He never got out of character as the ranger, he was polite and did not use any "bad language".  I wish I had a picture of us with him on the computer, but this is the only one I had digitized.  He might not have been the most famous person, I have met but he is one of the few, my husband or I have captured in a picture.  It is a shame that the youth of today do not have such a good role model.

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!
The worst job that I had was doing inventory of nuts, screws and bolts at EJ Korvettes.  Though this picture names what is in it, I could not have told you one kind from another and we had to count each one and sometimes get on ladders and I hate heights.  We did not have to wear uniforms.  But, this part of the job was the worst, taken inventory of small items.

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.
I am going to have teeth implants and do not have bottom teeth at this time.  My favorite sweet treat is a Snickers bar.  I can am unable to show you a picture of me enjoying one, however, I do have a cat whose name is Snickers and can show you one of me with my Snickers when he was a kitten and a picture of a Snickers bar.

  2. I love Snickers too! Your kitty is adorable.

    I detest inventory. I've had to do the accounting side of it where you add everything up and then get your total inventory number. Even that part isn't fun.

  3. Umm... I lie about having a boyfriend all the time. LOL! Kidding. I don't have a boyfriend, but I wish that I did. :)

    Snickers is adorable. I love that you named him after your favorite treat. :)
