Happy Anniversary, Bitches!

This week marks my one-year blogging anniversary. My blogiversary, if you will. So to celebrate, here’s a meme! I got this meme from wickedwonder1. Here are the rules:
You’ve somehow acquired a magical dimension-splicing conversion van and are planning an epic cross-country road trip with your friends and fandom. First, pick ten travel buddies from anywhere — real life, fiction, OCs, celebrities, whatever. Then answer these questions to see how cracktastic your adventure turns out to be.

But I’m changing the rules a little bit. I’m going on a road trip with characters from books I’ve reviewed this last year.

1. Spencer from The Wind Blows Backwards

2. Mark “Happy Harry Hard-on” Hunter from Pump Up the Volume

3. Carl from Up Country

4. Daphne from Daphne’s Book

5. Katherine from Forever….

6. Carlie from Pinballs

7. Alan Gray from the BSC books/movie

9. Bella from the Twilight Series

10. Jessica Wakefield of Sweet Valley Twins
1. The GPS has an obnoxious voice. What does 9 name it, and is 7 bothered by it?
Bella, not realizing that the voice is obnoxious (because she actually lacks the ability to recognize obnoxiousness), names the GPS Edward. Because she misses him soooo badly on this road trip and can not think of anything else. Rather than be annoyed by it, Alan Gray is delighted with all the teasing opportunities this provides. And rather than be annoyed by Alan’s teasing, Bella feels smug, the teasing being proof that no one has ever experienced a love quite like she has for Edward.

2. 1, 4, 6 and 8 are all forced to share the cramped back row of seats. How do they arrange themselves?
Spencer needs to be by a window so he can stare out and brood. Daphne gets the other window, so she can stare out and make some sketches and brood about her Grandmother. Tim wants to sit next to Daphne, because Spencer creeps him out, but Carlie kicks his ass just for thinking he can get his own way, so he ends up next to Spencer. Carlie then sits next to Daphne and tries to rope her into conversation the whole trip. It is unsuccessful, Daphne will not engage Carlie at all.

3. 5 and 10 are sitting next to each other. Who gets the window seat?
Jessica. Katherine has more important things on her mind than who gets a window seat, like who she will fuck next. But if she did try to fight Jessica for it, Jess has a devious plan in mind somehow involving a twin-switch with Elizabeth.

4. 3 and 4 are invading one another’s personal space. Who gets annoyed first, and how do they deal with it?

Both are moody and probably equally annoyed, but Carl would show it first. He’d probably tell Daphne about how he can’t have his personal space invaded because of his ‘mommy’s a whore,’ issues. Then Daphne would shoot him a dagger look and quietly explain about her dead parents and crazy Grandmother. Then they’d spend the rest of the trip commiserating about and bonding over whose life has sucked more.

5. What habit does 8 have that might get on 2’s nerves?
Raising a child and not sticking it to the man. But I actually think Happy Harry might get along quite well with Tim (and most other NK protags.)

6. Who’s more likely to start up a round of “99 Bottles,” 1 or 7?
Oh god. Alan Gray, definitely. And while Alan’s singing it, Spencer will contemplate suicide yet again.

7. Where is number 7?
Alan Gray can’t stay still. He wants to bother everyone equally. He gets along surprisingly well with Carlie.

8. You stop at a gas station and 5 and 3 make a snack-and-supply run. What do they bring back?
Katherine brings back a sticky bun with no raisins to munch on and some condoms, in case she meets any guys she wants to fuck. Also, breath spray for that very reason. Carl brings back the least healthy junk food imaginable and some tools in case he comes across a car with a sweet Blauplunkt system. But no alcohol, because the -ism runs in his family.

9. 6 and 8 brought CDs. What’s on their playlist?
Carlie probably brought some crap like Jonas Brothers or whoever the kids are listening to these days, and she won’t stop complaining until she gets to listen to it. Tim probably brought some Vivaldi and Coletrain. Something that most 18 year olds don’t listen to, unless they are intellectually gifted.

10. Who’s the more notorious backseat driver, 2 or 10?

Jessica Wakefield. Bitch thinks she knows everything. And anyway, without his radio equipment, Mark is too painfully shy to correct anyone’s driving.

OK, in all seriousness, I can not believe I’ve been doing this for a year. I’m the queen of starting things and not finishing them. But truly, writing this blog has been some of the most fun I’ve ever had. Which kind of makes me sad about my life…..

So I just wanted to shout out a great big THANK YOU to everyone who reads, comments and lurks here. I know I’m not the greatest about responding to comments, but I do read and appreciate every single one, and I try to check out the blogs of those who leave comments.

*Raises glass of Ocean Spray 100% No-Sugar Added Cranberry Blueberry Juice* Here’s to another great year of crappy old YA Lit!

Back to the good old book reviews later this week!

    Sadako-Alan Gray is one of my YA-lit crushes. I love the funny guys! Sharkcrow-I'd kill myself if I was stuck in a car with Dawn and Elizabeth. It's bad enough that Jessica and Bella were there with me…
