Welcome to my blog post for week 2 of the Fairy Metal Thunder Read-Along. Last week was so fun and I loved seeing what everyone else posted. This weeks questions come from Kelly @ Reading The Paranormal
Questions for Chapters 7-13 of Fairy Metal Thunder:
1. Unfairly grounded by his parents, Jason decides to lie to them so he can go to the audition in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, not only does the audition end poorly but his parents discover his lie and things go downhill from there. Tell us the most outrageous lie you've ever been caught in. Bonus points if you can provide pictorial proof. Reenactments eagerly accepted.
This lie goes back to my post last week about the only time I was ever grounded. Me and two other friends wanted to meet up with some boys and hang out. One of them was going to come pick us all up. Each of us told our parents that the others parent was picking us up and dropping us off at the movies. Well we ended up driving around the woods for a while before we picked up the other two guys we were hanging out with and ended up getting stuck. We stayed there until it was light out and then walked out of the woods and found our way to a friends house. Little did we know all of our parents had called each other and they were all together and up all night. They had the police from a few different towns all looking for us. That is why I don't ever lie now. I find that lying does no good. It's better to tell the truth and deal with the outcome right then. Lying always comes back to get you.
2. In Faerie, Aoide is summoned to see the Faerie Queen. Have you ever met someone important like the Faerie Queen? Someone famous? Tell us the story behind how it happened. Once again, pictures are a plus!
When I was 17 and on vacation I met the lead singer from the band Suicidal Tendencies in the hotels gym, but I thought he was just some scum making up a story. I totally blew him off and then found out later that he wasn't lying. I had no clue who the band was or anything so when I got home from vacation I looked it up. I have met Bill Cosby too. He lives a few town over. I think one of my biggest fan moments was meeting Cassandra Clare though. She is totally like a celebrity to me!!

3. Caught lying to his father about his non-existent job at the car wash, Jason has now found gainful employment at Buddy McSlawburger's - where he's forced to wear "the funny hat" as part of his uniform. What's the worst job you've ever had? Did it involve a particularly noxious uniform? Tell us about it - in riveting, full-color detail!
I worked at McDonald's when I was 16. Those uniforms were the worst and I hated smelling like french fries all the time.
4. In an effort to regain their stolen instruments, Aoide and Rhodia travel to the sugar swamp to hire a hunter. Wouldn't you love to live somewhere where the water is sweet and the grass is made of sugar cane? Show us a picture of you enjoying your favorite sweet treat. Or, rewrite history and tell us how your version of the sugar swamp would differ from the one in the book.
I don't have any pictures of me eating my favorite sweet treat, but I love cupcakes. I have a sweet picture of my daughter eating one though. I also love gummy bears and could eat them everyday, but I have no pictures of gummy bears.
This was her 3rd Birthday.
I can't wait to see all of the other posts from everyone participating in the read-along and scavenger hunt.
