Watchlist Wednesday V

The Spark


It’s been a while since I’ve done this and these searches are more scattered than normal because I’ve been working on all sorts of projects lately. These aren’t quite as freaky as previous ones, though.


Ready to go down the rabbit hole?

*gives you a string to hold*

Whatever you do…don’t let go of that string!

*you drop and immediately let go*

Then, I had HORDES of searches to see why my synchronous scrolling wasn’t working in Word…and I was able to fix it.

Then, I made the mistake of Googling myself. *sighs* Which I will never, ever do again. I’ll let my husband Google me. It’s like eavesdropping…eventually you’ll stumble across bad reviews.

Wait…I know I just looked that up, but…. Farmer’s Almanac Full Moon Calendar… again. (I consider making it my home page.)

So, hey, since none of these are quite as Watchlist worthy as normal…I feel like I need to make it up to you. First person to count how many times I looked up the Farmer’s Almanac and put it in the comments below will win an ebook copy of The Teacher’s Vet for them or a friend. Goooooooooo!

7 Responses so far.

  1. Melody May says:

    I counted 8, but if you are also counting the comment question then it would be 9. There is my answer.

    • You are so freaking clever…I didn’t even consider counting the comment question one! *high-fives* Also, I had to go back and recount because I’d counted 7. *headslap* This! This is why I have an agent–so, she can do the math.

      Hey, send me an email address on Twitter that I can send it to…and is from Amazon okay or do you use something else as an ereader? (DM me on both)

  2. Jaime (Spider-Jaime) says:

    Admitting you have a problem spelling Spider-Man, is the first step…but this watchlist is the first time I’ve seen you spell it right! (Clouds part…heavenly choir sings) Yay!! Oh shoot…sometimes that’s the only correction I find…What does she need me for now?!? (weeps)

    • LOL. I’m doing a revision of something else and I ran across another Spiderman. *headslap* Hello, my name is Wendy, and I spell Spider-Man wrong every time. Actually, I worked out a cheat to remember it. The dash is a web between the two proper nouns. *thumbs up*

      • Jaime (Spider-Jaime) says:

        Very clever! And don’t worry if you get the urge to spell it wrong you can call me day or night and we’ll talk you through it. You can beat this! 😉

  3. Depending on the day, your Watchlist is either much better or much worse than mine. What can I say? Oh, and good that Melody counted the comment question to make it 9 times the Farmer’s Almanac was mentioned. Always needs to be odd with you, doesn’t it? 😉

    • I know, right? I totally thought it was seven…when I counted…it was seven…and then I recounted and it was eight. In retrospect, It’s maybe not so shocking that I have to keep looking at that website when I can’t count as high as eight. *headslap*
