New Blogger/New Prize/New Tune!

I want to welcome a new blogger to the wonderful world of blogging! My best friend, Becky who you may have read about in my road trip posts, started a blog! She is writing a novel about a dog rescued from a puppy mill, and she also writes for a local newspaper. Her blog is Truths and Tails, please stop by and welcome her to the blog community! She's candid, she's funny, and she's a best friend of creatures big and small (and don't even try getting any dirt about me from her ;).

I also want to thank Donna at Word Wrangler for having a free verse poetry contest. I'm more of a rhymer, but her contest forced me to do something different...and I won! Thank you, Donna, for the Nikki Grimes poetry book as my prize!

Also, congratulations to Debra Shubert of Write on Target for snagging an agent! Read about how perseverance, her blog and twitter helped make this happen for her! It's a fun, inspirational story!!

Today's tune for Tuesday is just a tune that I've been singing along to lately. I'm more of a rocker, but sometimes a pop song makes me dance and sing, too! The video is Lady Gaga's song, "Paparazzi" from her debut album The Fame. (I should've been Lady Gaga for Halloween, what a great costume that would have been!!) If you are a True Blood viewer, notice that Eric the vampire (Alexander Skarsgard) is in this video (and in the picture above).

You are tricky with the pictures. Have you seen Lady Gaga's version of Paparazzi with just the piano? Insane. It's on You Tube.

My daughter thought about being Lady Gaga for Halloween, too. That would be a fun costume.
