I Want Greek Stuff!

So I'm not normally a contesty type of person... I just can't seem to make myself jump through the hoops... But Jessica (and her gorgeous dog) at Alliterative Allomorph are giving away some real loot!  Jessica is approaching 400 followers and so is having a GIVEAWAY (and I get extra chances by blogging about it, so there).--if she hits 500, prizes double!

Did I tell all o' y'all about hubby and I adopting Greek Culture?  See, we're American mutts... we have no culture at all (other than my definite pride at being Norsisima)... but we MET at a Greek Festival (introduced by Fat Mike, his Greek friend who was my coworker) so for a long time our celebrations were at Alexi's (a Greek Restaurant in Portland--we even had our rehearsal dinner there before our wedding) Ooooo-Pa!  Loved watching the belly dancer running her shawls over his dad *teehee*

So anyway... because it is NaNo, and low effort blogging is more APPEALING than normal... and because Jessica is FABULOUS, and y'all want to be following her ANYWAY... I thought I'd combine functions and send you over there (and get my extra points to win GREEK STUFF!)--or Amazon certificates which I will USE to buy the books of my AUTHOR FRIENDS (so it is a win all around).

So go follow Jessica. Now.

[and FYI, I am a couple other places today. I am being interviewed by Erica and Christy, and I am at Burrowers, Books & Balderdash undergoing psychoanalysis]

The Greeks are nice people. And just think about mathematics. What should we do if we didn't have the Greek letters? We would have run out of symbols long time ago

Jessica- HA! Thank you, my friend! What I really want if to stay a few weeks at your flat--no problem eh? just to find the air fare!

CaH- yeah, I almost liked calculus for love of the lower case delta!

Jessica Bell said...

Hey Jessica, I'm blogging about Jessica too. A little shorter than yours and I've added some other pals too. I'm also having a contest to celebrate the fact that by the end of the weekend I will reach my editing goal.

I also wanted to give a hearty BOO-YAH! for your NaNo word counts! You are a Rock Star Trent Reznor proportions!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Plugged her contest today as well. Go Jessica!

Hart Johnson said...

Jessica-need to warn you about my lack of homemaking skills... and that michigan is only pleasant in late spring and autumn... but sure!

Nancy-I saw you had a bunch of contests linked! You're definitely better than I am about keeping track.

Will-Thank you! I feel like I'm cruising, but the intention has always been to front load.

Alex- *high fives*

Yay for Jess! I gave her a small shout-out on my blog today too - she's awesome.

And you are one busy laydee, all over the blogosphere!

Carol Kilgore said...

You are one of the busiest bloggers I know. Have a great weekend. Love Greek, btw :)

Ellen aka Ella said...

My Dad looked either Greek or Spanish...need to do the family tree, see where those ancestors branched off! lol I have the black, blue hair olive skin...can't see it now, had a perm.

I love this post, nice kiss out and it gets us
playing the blogging scene and visiting!

I had Greek pizza this week, does that count ;-D

Patricia A. Timms said...

I'm a new follower and fellow crusader. I would have been by sooner to greet you but I was stuck in NaNo prep land and now NaNo land. I hope your NaNo writing is going well.

Colene Murphy said...

You're everywhere today! Will head over to Jessica's now! Thanks

Thanks for following me on Twitter! And when I viewed your profile and clicked the link for your blog ('cause I heart bloggers), who do I see on your current post?? Jessica -- my writing and critique partner!

It's great to meet you and learn we have so many friends in common. Looking forward to following here and reading more from you!

Have a great weekend!

My internet has been spotty so if this comment goes through and as soon as it stays up for more than 30 seconds at a time I'll head over to visit and follow your friends. Thanks for your interview at our place today. I enjoyed reading about you, your writing and your books. Excited to see your books in print! christy

Hart Johnson said...

Ellie-you do have that gorgeous Mediterranean coloring! (lucky!) And I LOVE Greek Pizza!

Patricia-WELCOME! I hear you on how crazy this month transition has been--I tied up two big edits and NaBloWriMo... this month is a treat though--I love when I get to just WRITE!

Colene-Yeah... I get around *snort* Today really was one of those days, I guess...

Nicole-I didn't know you were hooked in with Jessica like that! Are you the Aussie in Greece? So funny, putting all these puzzles together about who goes with whom on a deeper level!

Christy-I hate those wacky days! Thanks so much for hosting me today!
