The GaryFest!

Love this idea!!

If you haven't met Gary yet, it far past time you did! Gary is a great guy (former Canadian now living in the UK) and his posts are always worth a visit. Here are the 'rules'!

Announcing the "Anti-Blogfest Gary Fest" on August 12, a blog hop in honor of Mr. anti-blog hop himself, Gary at Klahanie.

Hosted by Mark “Madman” Koopmans, Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, “Life is Good” Tina, Rockin’ Robyn Engel and Morgan “The Morg” Shamy. 

The rules are *very* simple. 

Create the titles of three PG-13 rated blogfests you would never join - and then add a descriptive sentence or two.


So, here are 3 blogfests I would never, ever sign up for!

Your Most Embarrassing Moment!

Top Ten Horror Movie Picks!

Dill Pickle Recipes for Every Meal of the Day for an Entire Year!

I'm way too private for the first, way too wimpy for the 2nd and while I know some of you may love dill (*shudder*), it's one of the smells/tastes I can't tolerate at all!

How about you - what's one blogfest you'd NEVER enter?

(I'll be out of town when this posts with spotty/non-existent internet coverage so I'll catch up when I'm back!)


  1. I would sign up for the horror movie picks blogfest!
    Dill pickles every day though? No thanks!

  2. Pretty funny stuff. However, since it's an anti-bloghop, I won't even suggest anything for fear of giving someone ideas.

  3. Fun choices. Hope you're having a fun time out of town.

  4. Alex - not surprised you'd like that one :)

    Jeff - good idea!

    Natalie - thanks - leaving in an hour or so!! :)

  5. Yeah, the dill Pickle Blogfest I would avoid at all costs.

    Have fun while you're out of town!

  6. Hooray! A fellow pickle-hater! I can sometimes deal with the juice for flavor, but not the pickle at all, and especially not dill! Recipes every day? *shudder* Great anti-blogfests! :D

    Here are mine!

  7. I'd never join the most embarrassing moments. That too, would be an embarrassing moment.
    Picle.... naugh.... I choke on vinegar

  8. But I love dill! And tell lots of embarrassing stories at Life is Good. I am, however, totally with you on horror movies. NEVER. Nice to meet you!
    Tina @ Life is Good

  9. Funny - I'm like you with dill (although the rest of my family loves it).

    Off the top of my head, I can only come up with:

    10 Top Nickelback Songs

  10. man... those three things are in my everyday post, you gotta stop over... :)

    The Blog-fest that make me want to say "NO"...
    Jeremy H.

    New Look, New Name and Same Stuff...

  11. Those are good ones. I would never share my most embarrassing moment either. I do love dill though but not for every meal.

  12. Oh, yeah... I sometimes share embarrassing moments, but not the MOST embarrassing. That would be embarrassing! (as opposed to charmingly self-deprecating)

  13. I'm with you on the first two...
    Horror? Eeeeeeeek! I'm the one who sits with a pillow covering my face, at the slightest hint of horror.

  14. I am way too wimpy for horror movies too, Jemi. I'd grab some popcorn and leave.

    Thanks for joining the Gary Party!


  15. I'd probably do the most embarrassing moment. :) The last one only on a dare.

  16. Nay on dill pickles. I've lost my taste for them.

  17. Call me weird, but I think I could do all three of those, including my most embarrassing moment. (Because it was more embarrassing for someone else and that made it all worthwhile.)

  18. Hey Jemi,

    No, not you also :)

    The first one I wouldn't join and especially because I would have so many embarrassing moments to choose from. Would take ages to pick out the best or worst.

    The second one, if heaven forbid, I ever contemplated doing, would have to include "Bambi meets Godzilla!"

    The third one I certainly wouldn't relish.

    Catch you later, eh.

    Gary the hoser! :)

  19. What a fun post! I will have to check out Gary's blog- I don't think I have visited before. :)

    I had to laugh about the dill recipes- my husband would totally sign up for that one. Dill is his favorite spice!

  20. I'd definitely have to pass on the dill pickle fest. Can't have dill EVERY day... ya gotta throw in some bread 'n' butters, too.

  21. I'd do the horror movie one but not the others ;)

  22. I would have a really hard time with the horror movie blogfest, seeing as I rarely watch them and when I do, I do it with a pillow over my face so I miss 90% of the movie...

  23. LOL!!! LOVE the DILL PICKLE ONE!!!!

    Thanks for the laugh, Jemi!

  24. I don't know...I loves me some pickles. Easy recipe: mix up some cream cheese and bacon bits. Core out the seeds of a WHOLE dill pickle. Take a butter knife and stuff the pickle with the cream cheese mix. Slice into medallions and serve. VERY good. :)

  25. Jemi, I can't believe you don't like dill! Crazy! But agreed with the other fests, LOL. Great entries! :-)

  26. Er...actually, I'd sign up for those. Well, not the first, but I love horror and enjoy all kinds of pickles! Funny post! :-)

  27. To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't sign up for any blogfests! Like you, (no surprises here) I'm fiercely private too ... and well, I'd much rather read about someone else's phobia's etc ... than air my own!

  28. Stephen - thanks! Glad to know I'm not alone in my dill hatred :)

    Thanks Liesel - yay for anti-dill! :)

    Manzanita - I know! It would be for me too!

    Tina - nice to meet you too! My entire family loves dill, so you're in good company! :)

    Beth - that's so funny!! Love it!

    Jeremy - that's awesome! I will!!

    Susan - yup - no one needs to know about THAT :)

    Hart - exactly!!! There is definitely a difference!!

    Michelle - me too! Total wimp here :)

    Robyn - you're very welcome! Maybe we can share that popcorn! :)

    Nancy - good for you! I'm not that brave :)

    Medeia - I never had one! *shudder*

    Diane - that's too funny! Sadly mine is all about me and not even with a hint of funny!

    Gary - hey hoser! Relish cracked me up - good one! :)

    Stephanie - my hubby loves dill too - I just don't get it! You'll enjoy meeting Gary!

    Susan - ick! All pickles fall in the same boat (or garbage bin...) for me :)

    Trisha - I love the IDEA of horror movies/books, but not the reality!

    Julie - that's me too! Not my faves!

    Michael - you're very welcome! :P

    ML - strangely I'm going to copy that one out. I think my hubby would LOVE it! :)

    Morgan - I know! It sets me apart from my family too!

    Lexa - thanks! You're a much braver person than I! :)

    Wendy - exactly! No one needs to know too much about me :P
