Thursday Thirteen #42

I had an idea for a Valentine's Day GiveAway a few weeks ago, when I was looking for a gift to give away as part of the Bloggy Carnival I participated in, and came accross these little mini-books:


They are: All Things Chocolate - A cookbook; The Kiss - A Romantic Treasury of photographs and quotes; and Life's Little Treasure Book On Love.



They have "Valentine's Day" written all over them, don't you think? So, how do you win these cute little books? Well, it is Thursday, so I thought I'd incorporate my little giveaway into my Thursday Thirteen, and in keeping with the Valentine's them, we'll stick to the topic of love.



Here's what you have to do...answer the following 13 Questions in the comments section, and I'll pick a winner. Some of these are about how creative you can be, some require a little bit of research on your part (easy research, just poke around the blog a bit)...



Ready? Here we go:

Fill In the blanks (These answers are your own personal favorites):

1. My favorite thing about Valentine's Day is _______________.

2. I think that the best movie couple of all time is ____________________.

3. My favorite love song is ___________________.

4. The best date I ever went on was ____________________.

Multiple choice (A few of these require a bit of research):

6. Candid Karina: a. Is single b. is married c. is engaged d. ______________

7. Candid Karina's first kiss was with a guy named: a. Slick b. Cognac c. Ronnie d. Mr. Vain

8. Of the guys listed in number 7, which one was "the Bullet" Candid Karina dodged?

Just some fun (back to your own personal choices here):

9. If I could date a movie star, I'd pick ________________.

10. The sexiest voice in hollywood belongs to ____________.

True/False (these are about me, Candid Karina):

12. Today, for Valentine's Day, Candid Karina is wearing red.

13. Today, for Valentine's Day, Candid Karina is wearing all black.

That's it...easy enough right? Hope you have fun with them.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY Everyone. And hey, hop on over to Creative Karina, I'm participating in Pensieve's Poetic License, and I'm pretty proud of my English Sonnet.

1. guys waiting until the last minute to buy their wives/gf's gifts. they're so cute scrambling around. i used to run a bookstore and we'd basically move our love/relationships section to the front of the store and the guys would come in in droves and buy tons of stuff. like they didn't know it was valentine's day & they could have planned ahead?! :)

2. i really like this movie called "a fond kiss." see it! it has a lot to say about the power of love.

3. "ice cream" by sarah mclachlan. it's my & my husband's song. he'd never heard it & i played it for him when we were dating & he told me "your love is better than ice cream."

4. i love any date out with my husband. a very memorable date, though, was with a guy who drove a mazda miata. i'm fairly tall plus i was in very high heels & wearing an above the knee skirt. it was funny how hard it was to get out of that tiny car. luckily he & i laughed about it.

5. e: all of the above! :)

6. (guess) b

7. i can't believe you'd kiss anyone with names like those! :)

8. d?????

9. JUDE LAW!!!!!

10. james mcavoy's scottish accent

11. michael j fox & tracy pollan. i love that she's stuck with him through literally everything. they seem so perfect for each other. it broke my heart when he married her instead of me!, but i forgive him. she's great with him!

12. true?

13. flase. you seem to like v day to much to not wear read. unless you're being ironic?

happy tt & v day!
