VGNO: They say it's Ann's Birthday!

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Girls Night Out, or as we say it, the VGNO. Our weekly Friday night party is hosted by the lovely Ann.

Anyhoo, this is the first anniversary edition of the VGNO, which also coincides with Ann's birthday! Happy Birthday to you, ma chere amie! Ann is celebrating at a Coldplay concert tonight, lucky gal!

Every week Ann has a question for us gals (and guys, if they participate). This week's question is:

"What band or artist would you have playing at your birthday party?"

Well that's an easy one, kittens! For my B-day celebration, it's gotta be none other than Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!

This is my all-time fave Bruce song, "Hungry Heart":





What are your weekend plans, kittens? I'm still housesitting. This current gig finishes up Monday afternoon. Then I have a week's worth of errands and appointments to catch up on.

I'm also bummed because, once again, most of my friends are out of town. Some are still on their European choir trip, some are camping or hiking, and others are with their families. I really can't go too far away because of my housesitting gig. I'm not complaining; I like housesitting, but I can't wait to be back home and sleep in my own bed again.

I was lazy today. I didn't do any reading; if you've been following my blog, in the past week I posted six book reviews. I needed a break from books! Tomorrow I'll resume; I just got to a point in Beginner's Greek where it's starting to get gooood.

Oh! Speaking of book reviews...yesterday I posted a review of Holly's Inbox, and guess what happened?

I got a comment on the review from the author himself!!!!!!

That's the first time I ever got a comment from an author on a book I've reviewed! Wow! I am soooo freakin' happy. That totally made my day. When I opened my inbox and saw who it was from, I literally went, "SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!"

Well, I'm off to go blog-hopping now! Happy VGNO to one and all!!!

I love you like a sister... but "Hungry Heart" is a terrible song by Springsteen standards.

I did a review on a DVD recently and the producer emailed me. So cool! Just stopping by to wish you a happy VGNO!

Oh wow!! That's exciting that the author commented. Congrats!

Bruce Springsteen is a rugged looking man. I wouldn't mind him serenading me :o)

This weekend we have two engagements: a pool/dinner party and a beach meet-up. Both I'm excited for.

Happy VGNO! Thanks for stopping by.

How exciting to have the author visit and comment on your review of his book. Wow!

I'd be reviewing all the time if I thought Patricia Cornwell, Dean Koontz, James Patterson..... any of them would stop by.

Happy VGNO

First, that's awesome you got an e-mail from the writer!

Second, can I come to your b-day party if you get them to play? I've got, oh, a few friends I'd like to bring too. But, I'd pick Rosalita.
