Happy Friday the 13th everyone!! Yes, it is Mystery Photo Friday as well, but before we get to that I want to show you a funny photo that actually won me an autographed book this week. Last summer I attended The Word on the Street book festival in Toronto. I spent a fantastic day with a good friend of mine listening to authors speak and exploring table after table of wonderful books. One of the most fascinating authors I met that day was Andrew Pyper, whose latest novel, The Damned, was just released this week. I read it greedily and found it deliciously creepy, so when I saw on Facebook that Andrew Pyper was doing a contest to win an autographed copy, I jumped at the chance! To enter, I had to submit a photo of myself reading The Damned. Since it is a creepy book about a near death experience and a psychopathic ghost, I decided a creepy photo was the only way to go. Here is my entry which I’m excited to say was chosen as one of the five winners:
Pretty cool eh? Now I just have to wait for my autographed copy of the book to arrive in the mail. I’m so excited!! And now on to the mystery photo. It’s a tough one. I tried it out on both my hubby and my son, Daniel, and neither one of them even came close, so let’s see what you can do. Ok, ready, set, go….
Looks like three sticks of chalk to me.
looks like chalk–but if this is supposed to be difficult than I had better put my thinking cap on–if I can find it–I seem to have misplaced it
congrats on the free autographed book–bonus–there is nothing book lovers love more than a free book–I just got my second one from the National Post–if you join their book club they give away 25 books and all you have to do is review it–I was in the paper last year and hope to make it again this year
then not than
My legs in the winter. And yes, I have three legs.
Love the book photo! How neat that you won.
my legs look like that too!
Me too :).
Three legs?!?! Sounds like something my hubby would say LOL.
Boys do that
Yes they do :).
where is everybody this morning–frozen in the tundra of winter?
My car said -27 this morning, and they say it’s going to be freezing all the way through March. I’m going to hibernate with the bears!
Yogi and BooBoo I hope — they are friendly and Yogi usually has a picnic basket or two–and I hear he loves chocolate (I am supposed to be doing taxes and bookwork this morning)
Yes, Yogi and BooBoo say they have a little room in their cave all ready for me, and it is filled with assorted pic-a-nic baskets overflowing with all my favourite foods, including chocolate. Andddddd, they have lined the walls with bookshelves full of wonderful books :). I think I will leave now!
where are you–thought the boss was away………..
am I avoiding my work–yes–yes I am
I don’t blame you :).
glue sticks for a hot glue gun?
I seem to be talking to myself here………….
Sorry honey bunch, but the boss is back, and I am swamped :(. I’m not ignoring you, honest!
he should have been gone longer–you need more of a vacation (from him)
I need a vacation away from here :). Bryan and his girlfriend are leaving tomorrow morning for Cuba, and I have begged them to take me with them, but for some reason Bryan doesn’t like the idea LOL!!
Holy crapola is it Friday again, where has the week gone? I’ve spent the day carving a love spoon for Mrs BC. Anyhoo I think your pic is of you reading a scary book. Only kidding it’s some chalk.
what is a love spoon Mr. Bunny?
I sent you a pic of mine on Facebook, I’m not much of a carver but this is what they are. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lovespoon
Mrs BC is half Welsh and we live near Wales.
it is beautiful and made even more so since it is from your heart and hard work!
Awww, you’re so sweet carving her a love spoon :).
I’m just a bloke trying to get some 😉
I love that image…The Damned one (sorry couldn’t resist). Congrats on winning it’s well deserved. Ok on to the mystery photo and because I’m online kinda late today I did not read any of the other comments. I’m going to say its a macro of a package of that sticky stuff you can use to put posters on the wall so it doesn’t run the paint.
I’m glad you enjoyed the Damned photo Edith :). On release day that word was used so many different ways – it was hilarious!!
Congratulations on the big win! I am proud to have rubbed shoulders with a celebrity! 🙂 The mystery photo? I think they are styrofoam cylinders used for crafts.
Thanks Dor :).
Congrats on winning an autographed copy of the Damned. I think the mystery photo is sticks of chalk. Now you know I never read anyone else’s answers before I guess,so I have no idea what other people have said.
Thank you :). It’s such an awesome book!
Wow, I thought I would totally stump you guys on this one. I thought it was really difficult, but not for my smart blogging friends. It is in fact a closeup of three sticks of white chalk. Congrats to everyone who guessed it correctly!! I really need to put my thinking cap on now :).
Congratulations on winning the book! Do enjoy your autographed copy:)
Is the mystery photo chalk? I didn’t look at the comments.
Have a lovely weekend!
Thank you, I will :). And yes, the mystery photo is chalk. You are all so smart!!
THAT PHOTO IS BEYOND EPIC. No wonder you won! Nice one. 🙂
Thanks! And by the way, I love the word epic :).
