Welcome #FF Peeps!!!


Okay, so as usual, I'm late to the party (was watching the season finale of The Mentalist.  Great ending, curious to see where they'll go next.  Also, Patrick Jane is a total hottie!)  Let's call it fashionably late, shall we? :)

Q. It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

My answers:
1. I'm kind of an insomniac.
2. I teach young kids how to pop their booties (aka I'm a dance instructor and teach Hip Hop, Tap, Jazz, and Contemporary to up and coming youngsters :)
3. I LOVE Asian dramas!  (Especially Boys Over Flowers, Nodame Cantabile, Coffee Prince...I could go on but we'd be here all night)
4. The first two followers of my blog are related to me (sad, I know.  But I love those women more than I love chocolate!  Now, that's a lot of love right there)
5. In my junior year, I entered our high school pageant and was voted Miss Congeniality.  Watch out Sandra Bullock, here I come!

*Bonus: I'm writing my third book now, but I'm afraid to share the title for fear that someone will steal it.  Man...we ninjas don't trust easily, do we?
Anyway, welcome to my blog Follow Friday peeps!  Please, feel free to post here and introduce yourself, check out a review, look around.  I'll be visiting your blogs soon!!!

Thanks again Parajunkee for featuring me!  As I'm sure you know, you are freakin' awesome lady, and I'm proud to be a Junkee :)

  1. LOVE The Mentalist but I'll have to watch it tomorrow. All my shows come on Thursday nights so my DVR is burning up that night and then I still have to watch a few online.

    Congrats on the feature. I'm a new follower.
    Here's my FF for this week.

  8. Hi! I'm a new follower :). Congrats on being featured this week! I love this week's question, the answers are so fun! I haven't danced since I was little (I'm not good), but I'm a sucker for dance movies and shows. I can't wait for So You Think You Can Dance starts (this week or next?) and love movies like Stomp the Yard, Step Up, Center Stage, etc... :).

  17. Hey Linda and Ms. C!
    Yeah, I'm completely unpulished, so it really shouldn't matter. But I'm telling you, this title seriously rocks! Really. I don't think I'll ever think of a better one, so yeah...silly but true.

  18. Hey Ninja Girl, congrats on being featured! I think your no. 2 is really awesome and I love all the asian dramas you've mentioned (though I prefer the Japanese version for Boys over Flowers more than the korean ver.) (^.^)

  55. Congrats Ninja Girl on being the Feature this week! I'm a new follower to your blog. I'm rather late in the game because I thought Blogger was suffereing from another apocalypse last night. I almost didn't check today to see if things were back to normal. You have a very lovely blog!

  56. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I LOVE ninjas - so think your blog is great and I love your avatar. I have loads of t-shirts with a ninja on them. hehe

    I am also impressed about the dancing, I love to dance but don't get much chance to do it. I'm jealous. :P

    Have a great weekend.

  58. This is a fun question. I’m learning so much about everybody and I don’t think most of us are as quirky as we think we are.

    My quirks seem normal enough. As I wrote them I woke up to the fact a lot of my quirks create inner conflicts. I’ve got a lot to think about!

  73. Hi again! The John Wall is a song (you can look it up on YouTube) and they made a dance to it. It's pretty simple especially when you get to the chorus. You make a fist and bring it up by your ear then you just turn it away from your ear, then back again. "John Wall, John Wall" (: It doesn't involve too much skill.

  79. Hi - your newest follower here! All the way from Samoa in the Pacific and love connecting with book addicts everywhere. I can relate to your blurb about getting hooked on reading thanks to discovering Harry Potter. My son used to hate to read until i started reading Harry Potter to him. He would get desperate to read the next bit and tired of waiting for me to read to him so he got into reading that way and we havent looked back since! Im looking forward to finding out about tons of good books to check out thanks to your blog. I blog over at http://sleeplessinsamoa.blogspot.com/
    Im a writer not a book blogger but do more reading than writing...sigh.
