Breaking News: Jen's Laws

Make sure to link up! The more entrants the more money given! Don't forget to grab the kick ass button! Now go and sign up!











Told you it was made of awesome. Now to my awesome.
Laws.

I’m reading a story right now that has rules.

The Lipstick Laws (a wonderful ARC I won from Amy Holder)

Author Note: I shall spill the beans soon! The novel was amazing!
Anywho this got me thinking, why not make my own up?

Jen’s Laws (Feel free to join in. If you can follow the rules you can be my extra special best friend… 4 Life)
1. Consume at least one chocolate chip cookie a day.
2. You must send one obnoxious text, tweet or facebook post an hour to a friend (sending it to me gains you more brownie points), this includes random facts about yourself, your cat or other uses for white-out like painting your nails.
3. Must use another accent (one you aren’t used to… pirate slang) when ordering your lunch. If you bring your lunch (or heat in the microwave) I’ll expect you to speak to the microwave. Sorry people, no way around these rules.
4. Watch at least one trash television show a week (for more trash consumption the cooler you are in my book – only because it makes me feel less bad about my number).5. Meow at your co-workers or child while in a conversation. (trust me. It's fun)

What laws would you add in your make believe and overly childish world? Come on… I'm bringing on the peer pressure. (One more plug: Go see Elena now! Say hi from me!)

Must tell everyone they are wearing jingle pants.
(My daughter came up with that one.)
Have a great day!

Candyland said...

I'm totally meowing at everyone I know today.

Jessica Bell said...

LOL. I bark and howl like my dog for no reason at all. hehe. Just for fun! :o)

Christina Lee said...

I'm so proud that I have most of those laws covered!

Diana Mieczan said...

I am so going to eat a few chocolate chip cookies today...I think its the cold that makes me so hungry for suger...hahah
Kisses, darling

Ps: I am hosting a charming scarf GIVEAWAY later today, just in time for cozy Christmas!

DL Hammons said...

I'm totally in love with Amy! She's awesome!!!

Here's a law for you. You must tickle at least one person every day. Extra points if its a child!

:)

Samantha Vérant said...

Ha! I always meow at people. Meowing is fun anytime, anyway, anyhow...

Matthew Rush said...

My daughter meows at us all the time. She may do that more than talking, in fact, now that I think about it.

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

I'm so with you on the cookies. In fact, I added chocolate chips to the birthday cake I'm making today. I must have been on as chocolate chip wavelength! :)

Janet Johnson said...

I totally have the talking to the microwave thing down. But curses on the TV thing. Ours doesn't work.

Em-Musing said...

It's always fun to use an old lady's voice when a solicitor calls and keep them on the phone telling them all about ailments and constipation. l

Teenage Bride said...

I am so happy to know that I am not the only one who uses white out for nail polish in a pinch... I may however be the only one who uses it to cover a stain on a non-white t-shirt... soooo not a brilliant idea

Meredith said...

Haha, these rules are amazing! I definitely have to try meowing in a conversation--can't say I ever thought of that before :) Hmm, I would add that everyone has to start singing along with their iPod whenever they're in public. That way, taking a walk would be so much more fun!

Trash TV is a great release. Love that word 'trash'. Thanks for the info on the blogfest. No idea what I'd write, but maybe I'll do it.

Whoops missed one:

1. Consume at least one chocolate chip cookie a day.

I'll have to make some but that's definitely do-able.

2. You must send one obnoxious text, tweet or facebook post an hour to a friend (sending it to me gains you more brownie points), this includes random facts about yourself, your cat or other uses for white-out like painting your nails.

As long as I don't forget, I will. Poke me if I forget, my mind has been so spacey lately from lack of sleep (got less than 5 hours last night but for some reason, can't go back to sleep)

3. Must use another accent (one you aren’t used to… pirate slang) when ordering your lunch. If you bring your lunch (or heat in the microwave) I’ll expect you to speak to the microwave. Sorry people, no way around these rules.

I love to talk in accents! At least around hubby, other people, not so much. Luckily I won't be leaving the house today, so I'll have to talk to the microwave, lol

4. Watch at least one trash television show a week (for more trash consumption the cooler you are in my book – only because it makes me feel less bad about my number).

I watch waaaay too much TV as it is.

5. Meow at your co-workers or child while in a conversation. (trust me. It's fun)

I meow to son #1 all the time. I pretend to be a mama cat and chase him on all fours. Then I catch the crawling baby cat and kiss him. I love toddlers! :)

Beth said...

Congrats on interview

Summer Ross said...

I have 2 laws to add to this- whenever something has been completed say "voila- an ecstatically pleasing configuration of hair that humans go nuts over"

and my second rule is to bark randomly in conversation.

Rezden said...

Thank you for the goals for the day. I am definitely going to try and accomplish all of these. Can't wait to order at Chipotle today! :)

Elana Johnson said...

I'm totally on board with the cookie idea. And dude! I would KILL to read The Lipstick Laws! LUCKY.

Chris Phillips said...

I need some good trash tv show recomendos I used to watch One Tree, but it ran it's course of goodness.

Laura Pauling said...

Turn up the music and dance like crazy once a day! :)

Kelly Dexter said...

I pretty much do variations on one and three daily.

Can't wait to hear about the ARC!

Donea Lee said...

LMAO! :) Ok - #6: Every Saturday morning you must attempt hitchhiking, but instead of using your thumb, you must stick out a fish-net stockinged leg and wink at everyone passing by.

And I triple dog dare you to post a montage video of you doing these things. :) (NO TDD's back!)

Talli Roland said...

Wow, I'm doing pretty well on all these laws! I even just meowed at my husband to meet one of the laws!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Laws? Constantly ask everyone "Did you hear that?"

And already commented on your great interview!

Carrie said...

Love the meowing law. I meow at my coworkers all the time.

Angela Felsted said...

Opposite day. There has to be an opposite day every week.

Creepy Query Girl said...

LOL. I'll be sure to speak to my microwave like Jack Sparrow and meow at my class tomorrow. Thanks Jen!

Sondrae Bennett said...

I love number 2. I can't wait to post some random fact about my dog on my friends wall and see what she says.

The blogfest looks fun. I'll have to check it out!

Amy Holder said...

Hahahaha! I LOVE this! Britney would be proud...or actually, she'd disapprove with most of your laws. But I LOVE them! I couldn't agree more with law #1 - yummm!

You are the best! :) Thanks for the shout-out!

Jennifer Hillier said...

Too funny!

MEOW!

Dana Elmendorf said...

I'm totally meowing. My kids think I'm un-cool freak anyway.

RaShelle said...

Jen - Wear eyeshadow as blush once a week. LOL It worked in the 80's. Everything else is coming back.

Meowing is great! I just tried it on my daughter and she looked at me like I'd lost my mind - more than normal. LMAO. Thanks, girl. =D

Shelley Sly said...

Haha, those laws are hilarious. I'm totally going to speak to the microwave at work. xD

The Words Crafter said...

I work with three year olds and when they want our attention, they pat, without exception, our chest areas.

I'd suggest that as a law, but it would be breaking a few in the process.

Soooo, 1. Blow bubbles in your drink and 2. go round in circles when you walk anywhere

*inspired by my class and often incorporated by their teachers when the crazyness level has reached maximum*

Jennie Bailey said...

Must tell every child you see reading Harry Potter, "You know, Hogwarts wasn't like that when I went there..." Try it. Must be with a British accent to make it believable. Wait until you see the look on the child's face. Priceless!

And I'm totally jealous you got that ARC. I can hardly wait for her release!!!

Colene Murphy said...

Bahahaha!!! BEST.RULES.EVER!

Your interview was awesome!

Kristin Rae said...

I think speaking in an accent is most definitely a rule I would have!

Melissa said...

I have so many trash shows and guilty pleasures. LOVE these laws Jen. Thought I was already your bestie for life??? :P

Amie Kaufman said...

I find the best approach is to meow during conversation, then look blank and deny all knowledge if asked about it. Confuses them even more.

Theresa Milstein said...

You're the link girl today!

I'm scared of Jen's laws. #4 is the only one I can do.

N. R. Williams said...

Rules are made to be broken. LOL

Tara said...

Thanks for the head's up on Elena's blogfest.

Abby Minard said...

Mm, trash shows- my kinda thing. Like train wrecks. Horrible, yet I can't keep my eyes from them.

Heather said...

I don't have anything to add to the laws but I can't wait to read this book! I'm kinda jealous that you got your hands on it already!

Ann said...

I have a tendency to talk to all inanimate objects. Even the eggs in the fridge. What law will I add? Sorry, not an idea in the head, still thinking about my conversations with the eggs!

Nicki Elson said...

Ooh, I am way slacking on #4, but you better believe #5 is happening tomorrow...and perhaps every day thereafter if that goes well.

Okay, I have a rule - you know those gibberish word verifications you get on Google? Well, make up a meaning for one and use it regularly until it becomes mainstream and one day shows up in Websters. My word to work with: "goado." Gonna have to sleep on that definition.
