Monday Mash-up

It’s Me-Me Monday, and, because I’m flying by the seat of my pants, I’m going to give you a mash-up.

We’re doing this Full-Tilt Backwoods Boogie style, though. No rhyme or reason–just stuff I like.  As always click at your own risk.


Let Kristen Lamb teach you how to spice up your blog.

Let Ania Ahlborn scare the poopy ka-ka out of you.


The Mechanic is one of the few remakes worth seeing.

The Brave One is an older movie, but I just discovered it.


Teen Wolf is great. Tiffany A. White is going to be talking about it soon on her blog.

Vanished with Beth Holloway is on Lifetime on Monday nights. 

True Blood’s new season begins Sunday, June 26, 2011 at 9:00 p.m.


Visit Tiffany A. White’s Ooo Factor to discuss TV, Vampires, and important stuff like Ian Somerhalder.

Visit Piper Bayard’s Blog to talk about the coming apocalypse, belly dancing, and the mystery of life.

Visit Kristen Lamb’s Blog to learn about how to write, how to never quit, and how to use social media to your advantage.

Visit Gene Lempp’s blog for an interesting take on archeological finds and ideas for incorporating history into your writing.

Chain Letter:

This comes from Julie Glover’s blog, “Writing is Like…”

It’s a chain-letter blog, and here’s how it works:

THE RULES: Take the phrase “Writing is like . . .” and finish it. Post it on your blog. Tag three others to do the same. That is all.

For me, writing is like living in a inside a intense dream or a delicious nightmare.

I hereby tag:

Shellie Sakai: @shelliesakai
Rachel Harris: @EndingUnplanned
Jennifer Starks: @princessjen20

The question of the day:  If you’re blogging, are you tagging yourself in each entry?  If not, you need to read We Are Not Alone by Kristen Lamb.

I clicked publish too soon.  So, I’m a day early.  As your bonus, here’s the song of the day:

Merry Monday to you all, and happy clicking.

  1. Thanks for the blog lovin & linkage! I agree with your linkage & praise of Kristen & Piper….I need to check out Gene’s blog! Thanks for sharing…

    I also agree with your thoughts on The Mechanic…Definitely worth a watch!

    And lastly, I’m anxiously awaiting next Sunday’s True Blood premier! Have you seen the trailer? YAY!!!

    • LOL! We posted at the same time and I just opened your link before reading this. Great to see you Tiffany :)

    • I hit the publish button instead of the “schedule later” button. A usual Catie-FUBAR. You deserve the linkage. Your blog is one of my favorites…even though I still need to go reply to Friday’s installment. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Wow! I’m honored to be mentioned among such a great collection of bloggers and writers. Couple of links I missed as well, I’ll be sure to check them out. Thanks :)

    • You’re welcome, Gene. I have fun at your blog. It’s good food for the imagination.

      Thanks for stopping by. (These early comments are part of the fun of my publishing early mess-up.) Don’t they say there’s a silver lining to everything? 😀

    • You’re welcome, Julie. I told you I wouldn’t forget the chain letter! Thanks for stopping by.

    • Have fun reading. I’ll be looking forward to when you post a mash-up. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. GREAT mash-up Catie. About tags – I’m still running through old posts, trying to update the tags as Kristen suggested. I’m thinking I should pay my daughter to do it… there are just too many for me. I’m also thinking, $he won’t mind. :-)

    • Ha, ha. If you have a lot of blog posts, I’d sure consider it. If I had a bunch of them to go back through, I don’t think I’d be too thrilled.

  4. Thank you so much for the the tag!! I feel honored to be on the same page with some really cool people and being tagged by a super cool person! 😀

    • Oh, I’m cool? That, in itself, is cool. I can’t believe I finally got to be one of the cool kids after all these years of being a nerd.

      I’m glad you’re happy about the tagging, and thanks for stopping by.

  5. I love this music. I’m honored to be in such a distinguished mashup. Thanks for the shout out. :) Good luck with that pants flying thing. Let us know how that works out for you. :)

    • You deserve to be in this mash-up, and you’re welcome for the shout-out. Land Down Under is totally the music of my youth, and I love this version of it. I’m glad you do, too. Thanks for stopping by.

    • Thanks Irene! It took me years to embrace my inner nerd, but I do now. 😀

      Thank you for stopping by.
