Weekend Hangout #2


I’m down today with … well, let’s just simplify things and say I threw my back out. So go visit! Make friends! Hang out and keep me company.

Here’s how to play:

1. Leave a comment here, on this post. Say hello to me, tell me what you’re reading, what song you’re jamming to. You pick it. Leave your link (I can’t get Comment Luv to work regularly) to your blog.

2. Go visit the blog link in the comment above you. Tell them “I’m from West of Mars” and hopefully something nice about their post.

3. When three people have left a comment since your last one, you may play again. If no one’s commented for two hours, you may play again. This is the ONLY time you may visit someone other than the person above you.

4. If you’re new here, your comment will go into moderation. I’m going to try to keep on top of that, but do check back to make sure no one missed you. If you were skipped, leave another comment — even if you break the three-person rule.

5. Be nice. Have fun. Make new friends — that’s what this is all about. And, of course, I operate on the Commutative Principle of Friendships, whereby any friend of yours is a friend of mine. Which means anyone and everyone is welcome to play.

6. Game ends Sunday night.

    Hi Susan,

    I found and started following you through Bookblogs.
    This weekend, I’m finishing up Wither: Chemical Garden Trilogy 1 by Lauren Distefano.
    No music this early, but I feel like it may be a Bob Marley day later on.
    I hope your back feels better soon; have a great day.

    Hi Susan! I’m currently reading Life Is But A Dream by Cheryl Shireman. It’s for a book review. And… I’m listening to It Should Be Me by Justin Bieber. No, I’m not a fan of Justin Bieber and neither am I in the hate camp, but a Facebook friend had this on his wall and curious me couldn’t resist clicking the play button. =)

    My blog address is http://sugarpeach.wordpress.com/.

    Susan, what did you do to your back? Gymnastics in the bedroom? Wait, maybe I don’t want to know! 🙂

    Sorry to hear about your back Susan – hope you are better soon!

    Hi Susan

    Currently reading Rock & Roll Rip-Off by RJ McDonnell. Sitting in Panera, listening to some light jazz they are playing, waiting to drive my son home from a camp friend’s bar mitzvah in NY, and looking forward to some Green Day on the way home.

    Feel better!

    I made a pizza the other night, which I’m not ususally very famous for, but this one had the kids going back until every piece was gone.
    I was thinking about Susan nearly the whole time throwing it together, and wonder now if that was the secret to making a fine pie.

    Well, I’m curious like Darcia about the back injury, Kiddo. And not shy either. 🙂

    Sugarpeach looks VERY familiar to me – I keep seeing new connections with different names all over the matrix. Makes me think I should begin using my alters too. THAT could be a lot of fun.

    Who will I be pestering in a moment?….Oh, only Michael. Can I torment everyone, Susan? I have some teasing to vent over on Darcia’s PetCity blog posting.

    Hi Susan! I’m still working my way through In Memory of Greed. I guess espionage thrillers just aren’t my thing. Hope your back is getting better — I know how miserable a bad back can make a person.
