TGIF! (4)

FOLLOW ME FRIDAY & BOOK BLOGGER HOP! YAY!



Check out this week's featured blog

And this week's question is: 
SHARE YOUR CURRENT FAV TELEVISION SHOW! TELL US A BIT ABOUT IT...
Like NaKesha, my blog isn't just a book blog. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love to read, but I also have a few television shows that I religiously watch, and I'm also a music and movie fanatic. I do a "Television Thursday" post every week, so I won't talk about any of the shows I featured this week. In all honesty, Criminal Minds is my all-time favorite tv show. I'm a psychology buff and am super interested in criminology - I'm actually about to start working towards my Master of Science degree in Counseling with a concentration in Mental Health. Criminal Minds is by far the best psychology/crime based series on the planet. I actually had my high school psychology students watch an episode every Friday during the 4th quarter and they absolutely loved it. They couldn't get enough! Watch this show once, and you'll be hooked. Click the pic below to learn more about the show. 



And now it's time for

Book Blogger Hop
And this week's question is...
"Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

Absolutely not! I love my blog's name. I'm kind of weird (well, eccentric sounds better), so my whole existence revolves around EMBRACING MY ODDITIES. I'd rather embrace the not so normal, yet simple parts of my life than hide from them, trying to blend in with the rest of the sheep, lol. I love who I am - a nerdy, bookwormy, vertically challenged, high maintenance rocker with a hard core tattoo sleeve and more pets than can afford to be fed, haha! So, I think my blog's name fits me perfectly!

I've recently started watching criminal minds but I watch it on TV so I'm really confused because the main characters keep changing.

Great choice with criminal minds! Love that kind of TV show. The forensic and the profiler side of investigations are so much better than the less cerebral/macho side. I'm following from the hops -

I have a hop you might be interested in too. Pop by and return the love if you like. I review books and movies and write all sorts. It's an eclectic blog. Oh and I'd love it if you popped your button up on my blog directory page too. Theres a linky to make it easy.

What's in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I'm very happy with mine - "Howard Sherman, Implementor" but it was quite a journey to get there.

Hop on over to my blog and find out why - http://www.howardsherman.net

Mandy Lum said...

Thanks to all of you who hopped on over to my blog today! I didn't realize how many Criminal Minds fans there are out there, lol. Oh, and here's a neat piece of trivia...If you have seen Season 1 - Season 2, then you should know who Giddean is, right? If not, well, he pretty much leads the BAU unit. Well, his real name is Mandy, just like me! Yay!

Since I was stuck at the hospital all day, I'm devoting my night and all day tomorrow to checking out all of your blogs (and organizing my Mardi Gras beads to throw in the Metairie truck parade Mardi Gras day :). Thanks again! Hope to keep hearing from all of you!

Susan said...

I love the name of your blog, too. I like how it's not just a description of your blog, but also a motto for life. Very cool.

Glad to have found you via the Hop!

Mandy Lum said...

Thanks Susan! I'm going to check your blog out right now.

Sara said...
