Weekend Hangout #4


I may or may not keep numbering these babies. I don’t know. Does it matter to you if I do or not?

By now, I hope you know what to do. But if not, here are the rules:
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.

    Hey. Just sitting here watching Supernatural and thought I’d drop by and say hi. 🙂 This is a great idea.

    Hi Susan,
    I am trying to finish The Brass Verdict this weekend. Say trying because I am also trying to add 1000 words to my new book and because my four kids will not stop talking to me. Feed Me, Help Me – kids are so self centered:)

    Morning, all! Bath time last night let me continue reading Jason McIntyre’s Thalo Blue, while lunchtime was an opportunity to make progress on Darcia Helle’s The Cutting Edge. Slowly forward… not enough time!

    I’m chasing a story idea that stems from my childhood, and I found that the Beatles’ anthology albums provide the perfect soundtrack to my musings! Living in the past today…

    I’m reading ‘Bound by Blood’ – Danielle Bourdon and Kimberly Hoyt & ‘The Guardian’s Apprentice’ by Michael Radcliffe. And nearly every other short on my Kindle, cause I’m way behind…
    Last night I listened to Prokofiev, from his ‘Romeo and Juliet’ ballet. Today, I went fishing.
    Wow. I don’t do much, do I? 🙂
    Look out, Lynne. I’m dropping by!
