Friday Fill-in #16 and a contest winner

1. I'm looking forward to ... my headache going away.
2. Mont Saint-Michel... is a place I always wanted to visit and haven't made it there yet.
3. I've fallen fell in love with ... Paris a long time ago.
4. Six of one, ... a half dozen of the other. (I tried to think of something else but the idiom just got stuck in my head).
5. Addiction ... obsession, optimism, call my book hoarding what you will.
6. The ... sarcastic House-isms... crack me up!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to ... a hot shower and bed, tomorrow my plans include ... catching up on my blog reading... and Sunday, I want to ... meet up with a friend that I haven't seen in a while!

And since it's already Friday night here in my part of the world, the contest is now closed and all of your comments have been posted. Thanks to everyone for playing along. 24 of you guessed the right answer. In fact, no one guessed an incorrect title so it seems I may have to do a harder one next time!

Anyway, time to announce a winner. In the order that you posted, according to the time stamps on your comments, each of you received a number from 1 to 24. Then this handy random number generator spit out a 12, so it looks like the winner is...

Congratulations and happy book shopping!

And thanks again to everyone who entered their names. I wish I could give you all an Amazon gift certificate but I'm not sure H would agree. Oh well, there's always next year! Have a good weekend everyone! :)


  1. Congrats to Indigo!!!

    I hope your headache goes away soon, too :-)

    Isn't Paris amazing?!

    Thanks for playing!

  2. Oh! I hope your headache goes away too! I hate headaches. I especially like your response to number 5. It got a chuckle out of me. :-)

    I hope you have a good weekend! I woke up this morning and thought it was Saturday. I'm so glad it's only Friday--the entire weekend stretched out ahead of me . . .

    Congratulations, Indigo! I hope you enjoy your prize. :-)

  3. I collapsed, fainted and fell off my chair all at once! I've NEVER won anything online before and Woohoo!! Thank you!!

  4. Hi! Mont Saint Michel is not far from where I live. I'm from Rouen, and honestly I have never been there! I think I should be ashamed;o)

  5. I'm with you on #5, good answer!
    Enjoy your weekend

  6. Congrats to Indigo and to you of course on your anniversary!
    Hope your headache goes away so you can enjoy your weekend.

  7. Janet- Paris is one of those cities that I never get tired of visiting. The headache is still lingering, I hope it goes away soon.

    Literary Feline- My headaches always seem to be in my sinuses. Never fun.
    Luckily it's a long weekend here so even though it's already Saturday, we have Monday off. :)

    indigo- You're very welcome! I hope you didn't hurt yourself when you fell off your chair! ;o)

    Virginie- I think it's common that we often don't go to the places near where we live. At least I know there have been places I have never been unless I am showing someone else around. I am a bit jealous though of where you live.

    Becky68- I prefer optimism but I know there are many who wouldn't agree. :P

    Iliana- Thanks. Hope you have a good weekend too.

  8. I LOVE Mont St Michel. I visited France and had to go there. I also love sarcastic House-isms. Basically, I think you are pretty cool tonight.j

  9. Miss Emily- LOL. I really hope I get to visit Mont Saint-Michel someday. Thanks for stopping by.
