Friday Fives: My Five Favorite Authors

So, it’s Sunday – so as usual I am late to the party. But my friend Elizabeth has this fun ‘meme’ and I want to participate – plus, I know she’ll be ok with me being late. She’s cool like that.

This week – I am asked to choose my five favorite authors!

  1. JK Rowling
  2. Stephen King
  3. Anne Rice
  4. VC Andrews
  5. Suzanne Collins (she wrote The Hunger Games – which I am currently obsessed with!)

Check out more Friday Fives!

Manic Monday #199

What was your best day of the week last week and why?
The best day from last week was Saturday! Not only had my hubby come home after a long business trip – we also took our son over a friends’ house where we all had a karaoke party! We had a great time with our friends and their kids. The little ones had a good time singing (whether with the lyrics or just on their own) and the adults had a good time being silly. I think it was a nice stress relief and I look forward to our next party!

What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without sleep?
The longest I’ve ever gone without sleep was when I was a teenager and spent the night over a friends’ house. We had taken a couple caffeine pills each and stayed up for roughly 2 1/2 days straight. I certainly can’t do THAT anymore! More recently I’ve only stayed up probably 24 hours straight – I’m not good at “awake” anymore.

Is how old you look and/or how old you feel right now different from your actual age?
I’ve always felt younger than I am (which is 29). I have been told I look younger also – but that’s beginning to fade a little unfortunately! I like to be silly and goofy and don’t plan on giving that up any time soon. I also like wearing crazy socks, pink and skull-related clothes. That’s a “young” thing that I don’t want to give up either!
