Follow Friday #10

Q. I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

Bathsheda Babbling from Harry Potter. 
She was some ancient ancient runes teacher at Hogwarts.
Harry Potter was a treasure trove of weird names.
I mean, there was a GRUBBLY-PLANK.

Q. Book Blogger Pride: What do you take pride in when it comes to blogging?

I take pride that I blog at all. 
I have my university breathing down my back and dumping studies on my poor thin fragile shoulders. 
It's a wonder I manage to watch dozens of TV Shows, read several books, attend lectures, not kill anyone, not meet with an accidental accident and BLOG. 

You can follow me on Twitter for incessant whining, cynical view on life and general nineteen year old angst. 

Yeah, I am pretty cheerful person.

  2. That poor poor child. LOL
    Sometimes, names are way to important.

  3. Lol- well it's a good thing you have the blog to de-stress from work/ school etc :-)

  4. Oh dear God, why is Matt Damon doing THAT?!?!? LMAO!!

    I'm finally getting around to reading HP (um, adult here so I have my excuses) so I'm sure I'll see all those weird names soon. I'm just excited to actually know what they've been saying in the movies all these years!!

  10. haha. Just read a post the other day about a blogger who was basically "stay-at-home" minus the kids and she spent about 700 words pondering how anyone could get book-blogging done with a 9-to-5. Amazed I managed to get through the whole post! I'll give you a virtual *fist-bump* to holding down a job, keeping up with the DVR, and having a life all while managing to keep a blog going. You go girl! ;) 'Cause I'm right there with you.

  11. Oops, now I feel like I exaggerated a little. I don't have job! I am still studying!

  12. Following you here and on Twitter because 1. This post made me laugh. 2. I think not killing people is pretty important. 3. I love me some Matt Damon.

    Preet @ AWR

  13. I think the names that made me giggle the most in Harry Potter were the author's names. Because almost every time their name had some reference to whatever their book was about. That and J.k. Rowling had a unusual name for everyone in one way or another, just part of her genius I guess. Thanks, for stopping by. I'm following back!

    Danielle @ Novelly Antithetial

  14. Oh, Bathsheda Babbling is a good one. HP did have a lot of interesting and fun names.

    I'm a new follower. I hope you'll stop by.

  15. Hey, I'm a new follower! :)

    Those are some awesome names! I LOVE unique character names!

    Have a FABULOUS Friday!!!! :D


  16. HP names are definitely unique!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
