Poppin' Mad!

Mad crazy, not mad angry =P

I made this guy
for the occasion!
I'm crazy excited about today's Pop Travel post over at Father Dragon's lair! It's one of my favorites, with minions and everything (bee-doo, bee-doo). And his birthday was yesterday, so make sure and wish him well.

I also want to thank everybody for the great patience comments on IWSG day - funny, helpful, and hopeful! I'm glad I can refer to them whenever I'm in a snit of panic! (similar to a din of harriedness) But I digress...

Today is also the day for Gary aka Klahanie's anti-Blog Hop! Where we suggest titles to blog hops no one would want to join. I think Mark put him up to it! This is going to be hilarious!

Here are my silly entries:
  1. The Smarty Pants Blog Hop - talk about well-thought out things a teenager says or does... (Sarcasm and pranks don't count)
  2. Nerd Alert Blogfest! List your favorite math problems! (What? I like this one, but I'm sure not many would join me)
  3. Mediocrity Rules Blog Hop - list your top three mediocre characters (I can't seem to recall any, they're so forgettable)
I look forward to reading the other entries. Happy Monday!
And I keep forgetting to put up my August giveaway!

Smart things teens say? Is there such a thing?
Looking forward to your visit with Al. His birthday bash was awesome.
And I like the Minion!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I would have to say no way on a math blog hop. Unless there were Minions involved, and then I'd have to join in. Love those Minions! :)

How did I know you were a math nerd? I used to be, until I hit Calculus. Then, I was like, "This is HAWD."

Great non-fests, Tara.

Favorite math problem is one I can do in my head.

Huntress, aka CD Coffelt said...

I dunno. Mediocrity will inherit the earth, right? :p

Liesel Hill said...

List your favorite math problems--awesome! Great anti-blogfests! Great giveaway as well. Now following you via bloglovin'. :D

Here are my anti-blogfests!

Fida Islaih said...

Well, I love those titles!!

Al Diaz said...

You are a spectacular guest, Tara.

I actually think I would join the second bloghop, hahaha.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Tara .. love your little chap .. and will see you over at Al's ...

I wouldn't do those blog hops either .. don't like smarty-pants at the best of times .. let alone in a blog hop!

Cheers Hilary

Ha!
Very cute blogfests, Tara! You're right, I would help you advertise the math one but I'm not joining!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Will check that post out. Sorry I'm no math fan but I'd take a peek at the other two hops. Nice minion Tara.

Many years ago, I might've joined the math blogfest. Now the thought scares me.

Thanks for your contributions to our Gary-fest, Tara.

Be well,
xoRobyn

Mark Means said...

Some truly terrible hops....lol.

Gave me some laughs though, thanks.

Nancy LaRonda Johnson said...

Definitely anti-blogfestable bloghops! Nice giveaway. I'm entering. :)

Jay Noel said...

Hmmm...I'm sure I could come up with some Mediocre characters. They'd all come from Twilight (boo, hiss....I know, I know)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Good choices. I'd definitely pass those up!

Christine Rains said...

Great blogfest suggestions! I know a few folks who might like the math one. Off to Al's!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Love your minion!(Aren't they the cutest characters ever?)

Thanks, but I believe I'll skip your fests. (Good ones!)

Trisha F said...

LOL. I am amused by the mediocre characters one for some reason.

And I'd be running screaming from the maths one.

Julie Luek said...

I enjoyed the post at Al's place.

Carrie-Anne said...

I'd probably break out in hives at the thought of a math blogfest. I'm nervous enough about taking the math section of the GRE!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Wow, you're really trying to get us to think hard!! Smart things teens say? The mediocre characters? And math? Ewww...I won't do any of those!!

michelle said...

Hey the Smarty Pants Bloghop could be a payback, in response to the teen version, where "outdated" adult rants/raves are in the spotlight. Bad idea? Oopsy doopsy...

Michael Di Gesu said...

Some very SCARY blogfests here! LOL. The Smarty Pants bloghop is hysterical!!!! NO! PLEASE!!!

Loved the last one!! BWAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Leigh Covington said...

Great things going on with you, Tara and I love the minion. :) Love the blogfest lines too. hehehe. Too funny!

J.L. Campbell said...

I'd definitely stay away from the Nerd Alert Blogfest. Math problems are anathema to me.

klahanie said...

Hey Tara,

You can now relax. Yes, finally I've arrived. Yay me! :)

You are over at the dragon's lair. I shall pop over there when I finally finish popping and non-hopping to al the different non-hippety hoppers who have been involved the irony of ironies festival of farce.

Your first one makes me want to put on my hoodie and go skateboarding. Or maybe not. Your second one makes me remember I'm very quick at totalling up numbers. I hasten to add. Your third one reminds me of the "Tagonist" family.

Your non-choices are a fine selection. I'm grateful. I hate blogfests! What a surprise.

Thank you for the irony, Tara.

Gary :)

E. Arroyo said...

Ha! Some great ones to stay away from. I love minions. =)

Pat Hatt said...

I'd join the math one. 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times 0, best one ever

Yolanda Renee said...

Great blog hop ideas to avoid!

Father Dragon rocks, now on my way there!

Samantha May said...

The minion is so good!!

I'm sure I said some brilliant things back in my teenage years. Psht, that was SUCH a long time ago. I'm much more mature now :)

Emilyann Girdner said...

Aw, Monster Inc. Minions are the best :)

Your blog hop ideas are awesome. I think you're right, I don't know many bloggers that are into math. Best of all is the Mediocrity Rules Blog Hop. You're so funny! "I can't seem to recall any, they're so forgettable."

S.K. Anthony said...

My favorite math problem? None of them? lol I'd be steering clear of that one!

I loved your post over at Father Dragon's blog :D

Beverly Fox said...

That minion is ADORABLE!

And I agree with Alex- I'd actually be really impressed by learning of a teenager capable of well thoughout-out observations and plans.

Morgan said...

Haha! Math and mediocre characters... totally spot on and original, Tara! Loved this. And so excited about all your fabulous Pop Travel stuff...sooooo proud of you! Loved your post at Father Dragon's. :D

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I would never sign up for a math blog hop. But my girlfriend is a math teacher so I will deny ever saying that :)

JJ said...

Stopping by to say Hi.

Tara Tyler said...
