Its Blogapalooza time

It's Blogapalooza! A chance for you to meet some exciting authors and aspiring authors AND score some exciting prizes. All you have to do is read my post, and then visit the 7 bloggers below and read their entries, and try to find the common phrase used in all eight. NOTE: It WILL be a phrase, so single words like "the" or "and" don't count! Once you think you have it, email it to and you will be put into the running for a great gift "basket" comprised of prizes personally selected by the eight bloggers. A random drawing from all correct entries will be conducted one week from today, with special preference given to those who choose to follow all eight of us!
That said here is my post for today and it is going to try to be as funny as possible

So this is the 2nd time I am seeing this tv filler, I am not sure if its a commercial, a wannabe commercial or just a tv funny because my existence in this country is not even up to 6 months old.
 So with no rhyme or reason this girl dressed in some serious pink frou frou shows up on my screen she is wearing a pink gingham blouse and some serious girly frilly skirt, paired with a white belt and white sunglasses a la Jackie O, she is riding a bicycle and singing abt Harley Davidson, I don't understand what she is saying but its just funny cos she does not fit the biker chic image at all. I could not find a video to support my claim.

On another note, on the husband's 2 day trip back from the Pacific Islands he was questioned by security, (that is his special talent by the way - being stopped by airport security, so when we travel I always keep my distance) anyways he is asked who he is working with and he tells the guy the EU, the officer looks at him and says "is that a company or something?" the husband is too stunned to reply.

Now that the husband is back my son won't even look at me, they had a long hugging session yesterday night and I got a huge tub of duty free celebrations (aka the Englishman's guide to chocolate bliss especially around xmas time and at work) and a 6th bracelet to add to the collection on my arm (a tradition going on 6 years now).
Guess who I am dragging into the Interrogation room 2moro?

This is a list of the participating blogs in the blogapalooza, they are really cool blogs and its another way to meet bloggers like you and win a fantastic writers basket (P.S just because I am competitive, I would like it if someone from my current blog family won so let's go and kick some derriere).


  1. This is really cool and a great way to meet other writers.


  2. Hi Joanna,

    What a fun contest... I read all the excerpts and figured it out. I'm glad I got to read yours and the other's entry. It's like old home week for me because I am an ABNA'er know almost all the writer's from there.

    Good luck and have fun


  3. A girl on a bicycle singing about Harley Davidso?! The producers could probably get sued for that! (and your post succeeded-it was funny).

  4. LOL! It's a wanna be commercial. They're test marketing to see if anyone is intrigued enough to blog about it. So, I guess they did good, huh?

    Murphy ;)

  5. ha ha its a huge tv network and they like to do funny stuff. Harley Davidson could have paid them to make that spoof because they normally don't show commercials.

  6. I'd love to see the chickie in pink. It's always nice when Husband returns :)

  7. Funny post Joanna. But what is EU?

  8. I've seen lots of blogfests, but never this idea. Have fun!

  9. My husband is Uzbek (think Pakistan) he gets stopped EVERY TIME we fly for a "random check"
    I keep my distance too...

  10. ha ha that's funny Jolene we are such supportive wives

  11. Haha! How could he not know the EU! :)

    My husband always gets questionned, too. Sigh!

  12. Who doesn't know what the EU is especially if you live there and work in an airport? LOL...The pink biker girl sounds hilarious...


I'd love to hear what you have to say, so go on & make my day
