Friday Happy Hour: Book Jacket Blurb Edition

Original image

A couple weeks back, we held an impromptu book club meeting. This was quite a party. So let's play a little more in that area, with a twist.

For the latest installment in our Friday series, I want to hear you rave. But not long, gushing reviews. Book jacket blurbs. Pretend your favorite author has come to you, arms outstretched, looking for a few kind words. You've only got a sentence or two. What would you say?

This Friday Happy Hour has a slightly higher barrier to entry, like the elaborate costume parties held on dates I pretend I'm busy. But I have faith. In case you were book clubbed out last time around, let's open it up outside the publishing world. Rave about a movie or TV show. A food or restaurant. Or write a blurb about a blog.

Maybe your favorite author (or director, farmer, chef or blogger) will use your pithy praise. You know, sometimes they just make those quotes up.

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
