Bewitching Halloween Blog Hop

I've been blogging all day at two different sites and I"m having a blast. Have you found any new authors you've gotta read? I know I have. Well I'm hangin out in the TRS party room at Spookapalooza. Check out Emma Lai. She's totally awesome and if you have a short story that fits the submission guidelines, shoot it to one of her presses. She's tough, but fair.

Today's questions. I know why can't you just leave a comment? And after visiting close to 200 blogs today I feel your pain. I hate capchas and you won't find them here. Gosh darn I HATE those capcha catchas, darn make-me-go-cross-eyed word squiggles just so I can post a dadblasted comment that I have to enter three frickin' times because the stupid s melted into a bleeping g and don't even bother with the so called audio clip because not even Stevie Wonder wearing a hearing aid with Bose THX Surround Sound can hear let alone understand the spoken letters!






Oh sorry. Got caught up in a rant there. So what do you hate? Is it those bloody capchas or something tame like popping bubble gum. Leave the answer and your email for a chance to win.

Today, I hate the stupid garbage man. Every week he puts my cans back in a different spot, 50 feet apart lying on there sides. How hard is it to put them back where you got them.

Today, I hate the fact that some of the Authors that are doing the blog hop don't have the contest in their page at all.

I hate the fact that there is not enough time in the day to get done all I need to get done :\ need at least half a day more!! Those capchas do get me also, I had to retype my comment I don't know how many times before I got it right...

Lucy Felthouse said...

I have to choose just one thing I hate?! ;)

Okay, that's easy. I just got dragged along to grocery shop with my dad. I hate that!

Happy Halloween!
I hate having to jump through hoops just to enter a contest. Go to the contest page, go to some other site and find whatever, then go back to the contest page. It's a real pain!

I agree with Amber. Today I hate that some of the authors participating in the blog hop have still not posted the contest.

Today, I hate that some of the Authors that are listed on the blog hop don't have anything about the hop on their page at all. I also hate having to jump through hoops just to enter a contest, particularly if it's a "new to me" author.

However I am having a hopping good time! It’s great visiting with old friends and finding new authors and books to add to my wish list. <^_^>

Thank you for being part of the hop AND for the chance to win!

I love the candor. Keep the comments flowing. :-)

I agree with the conditions! In order to enter, you need to have a) a lot of free time, b) super eyesight and clear mind so you don't glaze over when you start reading the rules, and c) have facebook, twitter, blog, and any number of media to advertise this post!

Yeah, I skip most of them - thanks so much for making this easy ^.^

Today I'm feeling the joy. The only thing I hate today is the fact that I have to wait one more day before I go away on a holiday.

Despise the capchas though.

Oh you're about to unlock a demon.. I have a nice long list of things I hate, hopefully I won't go on a rant LOL.

My number 1 pet peeve is the idiots who just have to pull out in front of you, doesn't matter that there are NO cars behind you, it has to be in front.. they pull out so fast their bumper hits the road and then they want to do 30 miles UNDER the posted speed limit! What the heck!!! I cant stand people who can't drive! You have no idea LOL.

Thanks for the chance to win.

I hate websites that start audio when the page loads in....

Kathryn Merkel said...

Following someone for miles with their blinker on, is one thing that really gets to me. I really have to fight the road rage.

It totally infuriates me when people are talking on their freakin cell phones when driving, and can't concentrate on the road or the light they are sitting at. I'm not an aggressive person, but sometimes I would like to get out of the car, grab their cell phones and smash it!!(Okay... I feel better now)

Anyway, thank you for the chance at your giveaway!

Jenn that's a good one. I was riding in the car with my teen driver and just finished explaining why you should pay attention to the road. Some idiot pulled out in front of us. Didn't even stop. If my son hadn't been paying attention we'd have collided.

MN-I agree. Cellphones are a distraction many of us don't need. I have a handsfree device, but if I see traffic is heavy or obstacles ahead I end the call. And I never text while driver. That requires taking my eyes off the road. What happens if a deer tries to cross?

geschumann said...

I agree with a lot of these & yours also. How long of a list do you want? ha ha! Let's just go with the blog hop thing. I hate when they have the captcha, but it doesn't come up right away. Also, when Rafflecopter is used & you have to make a comment too. Why not just put it in the spot on the form where there's space. I know, it's too easy. I'd better stop.

Thanks for the giveaway! Gloria
