Well, this cracked me up, so you know I have to share…

And a few extras to keep you chuckling…

    Happy Friday. I love “Lords of the Underworld” series by Gena Showalter and I own them so don’ count me in the contest.

    I loved the video. Why does cursing sound so much better with an Irish accent?

  2. Laura J. says:

    I love the Irish!!!! :beerlaugh

  3. StacieDM says:

    So glad it is Friday. This has been the longest week ever. FBF me please. I’ve wanted to start this series forever. Everyone have a great weekend!

    • Heidi says:

      Sorry you had a long week, Stacie. This is definitely a good book to start the series with. Of course, I’m a little anal-retentive when it comes to reading connected series in order, so maybe that’s just me. :cantputdown

    FBF! and TGIF!

    And for anyone reading, I’ll ask you to send prayers/thoughts/vibes of goodness toward my husband and the rest of the 20th Special Forces Group who is leaving for Iraq today…I ain’t too proud to beg for support. 🙂

    • Heidi says:

      Wish I had a cyber-salute emoticon on here right now…

      But I will keep your hubby & his entire team (is that the right term? *g*) in my prayers. God bless them—literally—for all they do for us. But here’s hoping they’re home again really, really soon! :brava

    Love your Friday funnies, Heidi!

    • Heidi says:

      Thanks, Leigh. I love them, too…they give me a chance to share my odd sense of humor with the world. And, really, it’s just no fun to laugh your butt off over a cartoon if you can’t run to someone else & say, “Look!” then snicker all over again. :beerlaugh

  6. Virginia C says:

    On this very casual Friday, I say “Thank you!” for offering such a fabulous “FBF”! I have yet to read a title by Gena Showalter, and this would be a terrific way to start the series!!! :hi

    • Heidi says:

      You’re welcome, Virginia. I’ve really enjoyed this series so far (altho I’m a few books behind :blinkie ) & know you’ll enjoy it, too!

  7. Dee says:

    I hope the winner enjoys this book [and series] as much as I do.

    Hi all!! Happy Friday!

  8. Ann says:

    Love the one about shopping in comfort!! Even when I’m shopping for “cheap flights”

    • Heidi says:

      He he. That’s why I like to go grocery shopping at 3am…you can get away with a much more relaxed dress code. Altho not quite that relaxed. :crazy

  9. Anne says:


    I loved the video. I’m currently looking into trips to Alaska for my parents and can really relate.

    Do you know the name of the singing or comedy group that was?

    • Heidi says:

      I think the group is named somewhere in the video, either introduced verbally at the beginning or printed at the end. I may have to watch it again to see…gosh, what a trial. :Bigthumbs

    • Heidi says:

      Anne~ I was wrong; the name wasn’t mentioned in the video clip, but it was on the original YouTube posting.

      The group is called Fascinating Aida, a British all-female comedy trio. (No kidding, huh? :beerlaugh ) Here’s their website, if you’re interested:

    Perfect funnies, especially for the day after St. Paddy’s! :beerlaugh

    • Heidi says:

      Thank you, Pam. Can you believe I actually forgot these would be going up the day after St. Pat’s…otherwise I probably would have gone full throttle on the Irish funnies. :beerlaugh But I must have a bit of the luck o’ the Irish in me to have run across this video at the perfect time. :brava

  11. mary k says:

    Wow, that video was hilarious!

    I’ve already bought all the Lords of the Underworold Books so you don’t have to enter me in the contest. 🙂 I love this series so I know who ever wins will be smiling. 🙂

  12. Hollie says:

    • Heidi says:
