Frankly, My Dear . . . : Five Things Friday

We’ve been doing the Five Things Friday posts for a while now. A start, a stop, a hiccup, but now we’re steady at it. I’ve enjoyed your topic suggestions and comments on these posts.

Recently, someone asked what my five favorite posts on FMD are. Y’all are smart. You already know where this is going. Of course, I could list twenty or possibly a hundred. So choosing my five favorite posts is a bit of a challenge. thankyouverymuchforthesuggestionyouknowwhoyouare.

I’m often asked what is the difference between media and marketing?

So this was us a year and a half ago [has it really been that long?!] at Blue Ridge. They’re celebrating awards and I’m celebrating the fact I could jump in high heels.

Ahh, good times.

So, next week we’re doing a slightly different podcast, which y’all may have surmised from the title of this post.

Everything you wanted to know about writing but were afraid to ask.

Review: Boy, 9, Missing, by Nic Joseph

Frankly, My Dear . . . Boy, 9, Missing

Two months ago my brother took me to Barnes & Noble and said those most magical words. “Pick something.”

I’d passed this book on my way through the stacks, and the cover grabbed me. The back blurb grabbed me. And since my I-want-him-to-be-my-agent friend instructed me to stop reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil [I KNOW, right?! Good thing he didn’t tell me to also give up the movie before NOLA is finished!], this one seemed like a good fit to also use … read the rest. . .

What’s on my plate this week? Well, y’all voted and results are 2-to-1 in favor of Andouille Jambalaya.

Just kidding! You already know what’s on my plate, because you voted for potato chip casserole!

Now, the original version is found in The Unemployment Cookbook, but as you can probably tell by the photo above, BEE The Zebra is not about to let Nippers have all the redoux fun.
