I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

G is for

Blogging from A to Z
April Challenge

hosted here

G is for Gina . . . that's me!

We bought new furniture last summer. My favorite color is purple but the chair wasn't comfortable enough to read in so we didn't get it, despite it's name. The Gina Collection ;-) 

edit: Mom wanted to name me Gigi but was afraid of everyone calling me guy-guy so named me Gina Gaye so she could call me Gigi. Guess what? She called me Gina Lollobrigida and Gina Marina a LOT but not Gigi. Go figure.

I'm married (30 years), have two kids and two cats. I'm a SAHM but did lots of volunteering at the kid's elementary school and still volunteer at church. I'm a runner. Slower than molasses going uphill but still a runner ;-)

I used to say I'd read almost anything but since blogging I've discovered all kinds of sub-genres that I have no interest in reading more of. Picture books are still a favorite and I've continued to purchase them for myself now that the kids are older. Suspense and Thrillers are okay but I need a really good reason to read straight horror now. It also works for movies, as I like movies that have explosions but don't like to watch the commercials for movies like Saw. - end edit

And apparently, I'm a meme. Well, not an actual picture of me, the meme is called "Good Girl Gina".
per Know Your Meme "Good Girl Gina is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a smiling girl and various captions portraying the subject as a considerate and sometimes overly compliant girlfriend. The character can be seen as the anthesis of Scumbag Stacy."

Here's the picture with no words
Here's a couple of the memes

 Now that that's out of the way, here's a birthday meme I found when I googled "Gina meme". It is also my birthday month :-)

J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge - where I am part of Arlee Bird's A to Z Ambassador Team.
How has the first week of the challenge been for you so far? Are you meeting your goals of posting and hopping to other blogs?
My blog has a giveaway with bonus a to z challenges to encourage people to visit more stops.
Congratulations on being a meme. Yup, a chair has to be good to sit in or it isn't worth it.

Wow Gina, I didn't know we had internet stars on the #atozchallenge! :O) My favorite color is purple too! Did you ever find a comfortable reading chair?
