Getting Lucky in a Wormhole and then Fading Away

Happy Wednesday ladies and gents! I love Wednesdays because Friday is on the horizon, it’s my blogging day, and I get to help lead youth group at my wonderful awesome church!!

I’m pretty jacked up about this since sales for 18 Things have been down, and who couldn’t use some luck of the Irish, right?! I’ve read a number of the books on the list already, and one of them was Fade by A.K. Morgen. And she’s here today to interrupt my regular scheduled programming and give you a special message in honor of Fade‘s six month book birthday, so put on your party hats people, and give it up for my publishing sister!!
 

I don’t know about you, but I love birthdays, and not just because cake is involved (though cake is rather important). I love the companionship involved in birthdays. Friends and family gathering to celebrate one another is never a bad thing. And presents don’t suck either. 🙂 Some of my favorite people and I have put together a great big squishy collection of gifts just for you. Yes, you! Entering is easy as cake. All you have to do is pull up a chair, turn up the music, and click on that pretty little Rafflecopter on my blog. Winners will be announced on March 23rd. Don’t forget to spread the word so all of your friends can join the celebration, too.

Fade

YAY! Happy 6 month birthday to Fade! Now for Numero Tres.  

National Wormhole Day Blog Hop: March 14th Albert Einstein’s Birthday. Brought to you by Laura Eno and Luanne Smith at Bards and Prophets. And mucho thanks to author Stephen Tremp for posting it on his blog, and then sending me an email reminder (because if you don’t know me, I suck at remembering things).
 
National Wormhole Day
 
Here’s the question for the blog hop:
 
What would you do or where would you go if you could traverse a wormhole through space or time just once? One safe round trip passage.
 

I think I’d put on my foil hat and head over to the other side of the universe where the aliens hang out. I’d convince them to give me their super powers like superior intellect and the power to live a thousand years like humans did in Biblical times. How would I convince them? Not sure . . . I’m a writer, so hopefully I could make up some crap. Maybe I could agree to be their human minion. It’d be totally worth it because then I would be smart enough to find cures for all the incurable diseases and create world peace, ect . . .  and would have plenty of time to do it!

WHat*abOUt*You? What the heck would you do if you had a two-way ticket to traverse a wormhole and safely return?

  1. This question made me think too much! I’d like to say something really cool, like…Shakespeare’s first production at the Globe, or an awesome religious experience. But the first thing that came to mind was my kids–to be there when, for whatever reason, I wasn’t. But since I have 3 of them and this is a one chance offer, I forfeit my turn to someone else.

  2. I’d dash right out and buy 18 Things at that price – but can’t. I already have it! 🙂

    If I could traverse a wormhole, I’d probably go back in time to a family gathering in my childhood when people I dearly love where still around and spend another wonderful day with them.

  3. Jamie, great stuff happening out there. Thanks for all the links and Happy Birthday to Fade.

    I’ve travel to the afterlife on the other side of the universe and see the worlds where we can find news ways of doing the same things. Doris Lessing wrote a Briefing for a Decent into Hell in which a man traverses the worlds of creation, explores what could be the Garden of Eden, revisits original sin, meets animals and humans as they were, could be, might one day will live. In the end you must decide … does he return because he needed to be here to learn more? Was he sent back because he had failed in his first or second try on earth?

    No one has ever gone to the other side and come back with the knowing of what they were. Since I truly believe we are recycled until we learn what our true purpose is, I’d love to go to the afterlife and come back knowing what I seemed incapable of knowing before 🙂

  4. Wow! That’s a huge list of 99 cent books. Looks like I’m going to have to stock up on reading material. I was almost about to put the end of the universe as my wormhole destination, but then got stuck on all the awesome possibilities. Have fun with those aliens 😉

  5. Happy Wednesday to ya Jamie…
    …and thanks for the heads up. I’m a sucker for a book sale.

    At my age I’m already close to the ultimate time travel to paradise… so guess I’m going to be a stick in the mud and pass on the the free ticket and choose to enjoy the here and now. Boring huh? But will say, your foil hat was mighty tempting. 😉

  6. So, you’d be an alien groupie, huh? I’m sorry… minion, but I reckon that’s a fair trade-off if you could get some neat super powers.

    Thanks for the heads up on all those books for 99 cents. Cool!

  7. Ha! I just saw the Big Bang Theory where Sheldon said he wouldn’t mind being a pet for a race of super-intelligent alien race. Maybe they’d let you two run around together off your leashes at the Human Park.

    Happy Birthday to Fade & yahoo! for the St. Patty’s Day sale. 😀

  8. Cool to know about the 99 cents sale. That’s quite a list of good books. Sorry to hear sales of yours are down, but I’m sure there’s an ebb and flow to that sort of thing. I like your trip through the worm hole–very charitable.

  9. Love the foil hat for safety while traveling through wormholes and talking to aliens. I think the idea of coming back with a superpower that would change the world would be awesome!

  10. I’d want to travel forward into the future to see if society has become like a sci-fi story in 500 or 1,000 years. I’d be rather annoyed if we still aren’t living in space colonies and on a terraformed Moon and Mars by the year 3000!
