Things That Make Me Snarf - Superhero Tryouts

The moral of this story? Pity Mr. Clocky.

A few other piddly things...

I have 99 followers. When I hit 100, magical, mystical things are sure to happen. Like if you are the 100th follower, maybe Richard Simmons will parachute out of the sky, land on your front lawn, and pass out free sparkly ninja shorts.

Really makes you want to be my 100th follower, doesn't it?

I have learned that there is actually a place called Snarf's. I now own one of their t-shirts, thanks to my wonderful friend, the Ninja Joker. I call him this because he's constantly sending me silly comments based on my blog. I'd post them for you, but they're entirely inappropriate.

Actually, probably two steps beyond inappropriate, if I'm being entirely honest.

And last but not least, you will soon have the opportunity to read me in print! My story, "The Revenge of the Mucus Shovel Fairy" will be in the upcoming Shadows and Light anthology.

Read me, Seymour. Read me all night long.

I wish I could stop time. think of what I could accomplish in my new 36 hour but still only 24 hour day. *scratches chin thoughtfully* Imagine the possibilities.

Kelly Polark said...

Sweet! Take a pic of yourself in the Snarf's tshirt holding the anthology! Congrats! I love the mucous shovel title! It's very.... Carrie! :)

Eileen Astels Watson said...

Congrats on the anthology!

K.C. Shaw said...

Awesome about the story and the T-shirt! And I'm going to try and be follower 100 if no one beats me to it.

*looks into the sky for Richard Simmons*

Stephanie Faris said...

Congratulations. And what a CUTE title for your story!

Follower 100 gets Richard Simmons on her front lawn? Scary indeed...

Natalie Whipple said...

Yay! I'm so glad that anthology is smart enough to pick you! Woot!

Also, Tempus rocks. I need that power.

Cate Gardner said...

Congratulations, and I've just tagged you... Unfortunately, I was a little bit mean and made things slightly harder for you.

He should have moved stuff around so they could have a little bit of proof. And they should have had Flavor Flav come in and play the part. It's not like he's doing anything anyway.

Zero congrats on the anthology. I hate you forever.

You can do iiiittt!... is it a bad sign that I started finishing the song... *procedes to youtube to enjoy the rest in a guilty fashion*

Kiersten White said...

Good heavens, I *am* your good luck charm, aren't I? Maybe I should start having you send out my shorts.

Short stories, I mean, not my laundry or anything. Although that would be nice, too, since I don't have a washer or dryer.

(Also, congrats!!! That story was awesome and I'm not surprised in the least.)

PJ Hoover said...

You're going to have a nice t-shirt collection, aren't you!

Adrienne said...

Congrats! That's an intriguing title.

Carrie Harris said...

Jamie: See, I'd have v. good intentions about doing useful type things, but really? I'd just run around pranking people. You know I would.

Kelly: Actually, you can blame Kiersten White for the title, but I'm the one who took it and ran with it.

Eileen: Thanks very much!

KC: So? Did he show up? Did anything magical or mystical happen? And if not, can you make something up please? ;)

Stephanie: Are you saying you'd rather have Richard Simmons in your backyard?

Natalie: Smart enough? More like crazy enough.

Cate: You just do things like that because you know I can't resist.

EA: Thank god I'm not the only one who has been running around singing that song like an idiot. It's addictive!

Kiersten: I'll do your laundry in exchange for your letting me ride your flip flops to fame.

PJ: The first rule about my t-shirt collection: Don't talk about my t-shirt collection.

Yeah, no one will have any idea what I'm talking about there, will they. I don't suppose it's very different from any other day.

Adrienne: Thanks very much! I hope you'll read it when it comes out.

Great story title - congratulations.

Sherrie Petersen said...

Congratulations!! I like Kelly's idea to take a pic holding the anthology wearing the Snarf shirt!

And I love that video, Mr. Ticky Tocky, hilarious =)

Elana Johnson said...

Congrats on your story! And I already stalk, er, follow. ;)

Danyelle L. said...

Yay for your story. Carrie, for you, I would follow you twice, but I don't think blogger would let me. :(
