Chapters 14-20

1. In the beginning of chapter 14, poor Jason is having a tough time at work. Its busy, people are rude, there are hot girls talking to him, big lady's are about to starve, all in all bad work day. So tell us about a time when you had to deal with a pushy customer or rude behavior, did you freak, keep it together, throw a slawburger?

Okay, I used to work as the office manager for an auto mechanic. Part of my job involved informing customers what was wrong with their cars before did the work or telling them what we did when we were done fixing it. The thing that sucked about it, was that most customers did not listen to me when I would tell them what was wrong with their cars because I'm a female. They'd want to talk to someone else, and being that I was the only female, this meant a man. One would come out, say the EXACT same thing I said and the customer would believe them. I think on one occasion, no one else was available to talk to at the time and a customer got really pissed at me. Wouldn't believe what I was saying. So when the owner was finally able to come out, he said the exact same thing I had and customer went away happy. Asshat.

2. In chapter 16 Jason is getting ready to shoot his rocking music video and perform for a crowd. Have you ever made a rock video, been in a play or anything that shows you doing something with musical talent? Extra points if you want to show us.

I've never done anything of the sort *snorts* Okay, when I was younger I may have tap recorded my lovely singing voice on a karaoke machine.  And then in Jr. high I think there was a sing a long music video with my friend and lots of dancing. Lucky for me, all such things have been destroyed. :)

3. Speaking of videos, the boys have a little chat about Steven Spielberg in chapter 17, what is your favorite Spielberg movie? Can't think of one...well then tell us about one of your favorite Sci-fi movies.

Spielberg movies, I'd have to go with Indiana Jones (and the Temple of Doom is my favorite Indie movie. But I do love me some Sean Connery!) and Jurassic Park. That's if we're only talking about movies he directed. 

4. At the end of Chapter 17 the guys say bye to Dred who is getting ready to move, did you ever have to start over in a new school or new place when you were in highschool? Was it good, bad...horrible?

I lived in the same house since the time I was 1 year old until I left for college. Going from Jr. High to High School was difficult for me, but school in general sucked...hard. That's all. 

5. If you had a pet Unicorn what would you name it?

See, this one is hard for me because there are so many good names for a pet unicorn. I think I'd probably go ironic though, or just name him/her something very unexpected. Maybe Sabastian, especially if it was a red unicorn. If it was a girl, I'd go with Stevey. Or something like that. :)

Chapters 21-27

1.  Grizelmore the Goblin has some really weird cravings and eating habits. Tell us about some of your weird eating habits. Bonus point if you can show me a picure!

2.  In chapter 22 Aiode and her friends try to go and get their instruments replaced at the factory. There are a ton of different instruments there being made for the fairies, but man are they a fortune. Do any of you play any instruments? Have you ever played an instrument? If not, what would you play if you could?

3.  Jason and the band are finally discovered by the elf (with the crazy long name) and Buttercake the freaking adorable unicorn who turns into something not so adorable. If you were a detective who would you choose for your magical accomplice?

4.  The book ends on a happy but painful note. What do you think of the ending? Were you happy with the turn of events? 

5. Tell us your favorite quote(s)/part(s) from the book!

  1. I hate when people don't trust a woman's opinion. That would irk the crap out of me. I have no musical talent but I do love karaoke! LOL Indiana Jones is a good movie. It seems to be a popular choice. I lived in the same house all the way till I went to college too! I changed schools only when I went to middle school and then when I went to high school otherwise same three schools all my life as well. aww Sebastian is a cute name! I love that guy from the Little Mermaid! LOL

  2. Ugh I get so irritated when people treat you like you are stupid because you are a woman. At one of my old jobs some of the newer guys would get all pissed because the maintenance manager would always ask me for help with special tasks. They always thought I was useless since I'm a girl, but I knew how to fix more of the equipment than half the guys did. I love your simple Unicorn names.

  3. Oh, Indiana Jones--so fabulous love those movies!

    I just don't understand people, I tell you! Someone works in a place, they're out front working with the customers--obviously, they know what they're talking about. Sheesh.

  4. Yay for Indie!!!! And um I know about the customer who wont listen and then a manager makes it all better....GRRRRR...Ive had that happen to...or even when I was the manager want to talk to my manager, freaking people!!!!!

    PS- Sebastian is a great name for a unicorn...:)

  5. God forbid women be intelligent or have knowledge about stuff outside of the kitchen or laundry room! That dude in your story was a PRIMO ASSHAT!

    Good choice with the Indy love :)

    I think the name Stevey is cute!

  6. I am not a fan of sexist people. Seriously we don't live in the 15th century anymore. You should have charged him extra labor for being a jerk!

  7. You should have totally had My Cousin Vinnie hooked up to a monitor and then made them watch the part where Marisa Tomei schools the guys on cars. ;) I would have said... "Wow! Where have I heard just that before??" Jerks.

    Love some Indie! Also, would have loved to have seen your vid. :)

  8. I can't deal with sexist people, I would have cut some heads off to teach them a lesson! I've only seen the first Indiana Jones film, I should really watch the rest!

  9. I'm going to agree school in general sucked. I stopped going to high school after my junior & early-enrolled in a local college to escape! That took a lot of paperwork.

  10. I can't even imagine what growing up in the same house must have been like. We moved around so much. To me, that sucked. LOL

    And Dooooood, what the heck is wrong with dudes? Women always know best. hehehe

    I remember having the biggest hugest crush on Indy! Sadly, none of my professors have ever been as good looking as him. *le sigh* The Temple of Doom was my favorite too because I loved the romance.


I always love comments, and I read every single one!

Also, this is now designated an award free zone. Although I love awards and I love everyone for thinking of me, I just don't have the time to honor them like they need to be honored. Thank you though for your consideration!

XOXO Jen the Bibliophile
