Fairy Metal Thunder Read-Along Week 3

The Fairy Metal Thunder Read-Along & Scavenger Hunt is hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader, Kelly of Reading the Paranormal, Tina of Tina’s Book Reviews, and Jen of In the Closet With a Bibliophile.

Questions for Chapters 14-20 of Fairy Metal Thunder:
1. In the beginning of chapter 14, poor Jason is having a tough time at work. Its busy, people are rude, there are hot girls talking to him, big lady's are about to starve, all in all bad work day. So tell us about a time when you had to deal with a pushy customer or rude behavior, did you freak, keep it together, throw a slawburger?

Whenever I had a grumpy or rude costumer I would smile back pleasantly and tell them I can get the manager for them if they'd like.  I figure it was always better to send them to someone higher up, that way I did have to get yelled at all day.  Even now when I encounter rude people, I try to be as pleasant as possible, but inside I'm fuming and thinking very bad things.  Then I usually call either my family or my besties so they can commiserate with me. 

2. In chapter 16 Jason is getting ready to shoot his rocking music video and perform for a crowd. Have you ever made a rock video, been in a play or anything that shows you doing something with musical talent? Extra points if you want to show us.
I was in show choir (essentially Glee) when I was in high school so I'm sure there are videos of all those performances but I have no idea where they are.  My friends and I also used to make music videos when we were bored.  We would dress in costumes, sing (or lip-sing) and just have fun.  One of my favorites was during Christmas time and we did Santa Baby.

3. Speaking of videos, the boys have a little chat about Steven Spielberg in chapter 17, what is your favorite Spielberg movie? Can't think of one...well then tell us about one of your favorite Sci-fi movies.

There are so many greats ones that I can't chose just one.  These are some of my favorites...The Goonies, Schindler's List, Twister, Saving Private Ryan, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Eagle Eye.  All great movies!

4. At the end of Chapter 17 the guys say bye to Dred who is getting ready to move, did you ever have to start over in a new school or new place when you were in highschool? Was it good, bad...horrible?

I went to a college where I didn't know anyone.  At first I hated it and wanted to quit and go home, but soon I met some people and gradually I couldn't imagine ever leaving.  My first friend at college is actually still one of my best friends and that proves the struggle was completely worth it. 

5. If you had a pet Unicorn what would you name it?

I found this site of 100 Unicorn names and their meanings.  How crazy is that?  Anyway I picked Annamika which means full of grace. 


  1. Um found Unicorn name get extra points for being

    And PS- I didn't know Memoirs of a Geesha was a SS

  2. In my line of work, I've often wanted to remind clients, with the added use of profanity, that bitching, crying, and moaning does not get them what they want any faster! Alas, I simply remain cool and then do my own bitching at my coworker or husband. I'm sure I've set their ears on fire a time or two, lol.

    I've never seen Memoirs of A Geisha but I heard the book was fantastic!

    Annamika...that's pretty :)

  3. I never dealt with rude customers either. I would always get the manager for them. That actually is their job! :)

    Great list of movies. Also love the unicorn name you picked.

  4. I haven't seen Saving Private Ryan past the first two scenes: that much violence at the beginning scared me off from the rest of the film >.< Also, Annamika is a good name for a unicorn :)

  5. I haven't seen Memoirs of a Geisha, either, but I read the book back when that was the thing. I'm pretty sure I haven't seen the movie. Didn't realize that was Spielberg, either!

  6. OMG Lisa! You were a Gleek! I'm so jealous. We didn't have a show choir at my school. :(

    And I can definitely picture you being perfectly pleasant in any situation that doesn't involve harm to your shoes. :)
