It’s our one-year anniversary! The Waterworld Mermaids have dyed the lagoon hot pink, added glitter and cranked up the dance music for our weeklong anniversary celebration. Each day we’ll be hosting a mermaid scavenger hunt. At the bottom of each day’s post you’ll find three questions about the mermaids who blogged that day, the answers to which can be found on this site. Answer the questions and be entered to win that day’s prize. Plus, on Friday we’ll be giving away a $130 Visa gift card. To increase your odds of winning the gift card, answer each day’s scavenger hunt questions. Every entry you make Monday through Thursday will give you an additional entry in the big Friday giveaway of a $130 gift card. So jump in the lagoon and get swimming with your lucky fin!
Happy Day 3! Proudly brought to you by the Avery, Carlene, Diana contingent of the Waterworld Mermaids! Today we’re pulling out all the stops—Giving away signed print copies of Avery’s Temptation Creek and Seduction Creek books to one daily winner and running the pond Expose style. Please enjoy the following tidbits about the Mermaids:
Did you know—?
-Today is Carlene’s favorite singer’s birthday! Join with me everyone…”Happy Birthday dear Dave Gahan, awesome god rock singer of the most awesome band Depeche Mode….Happy Birthday to you!”
-Kim’s scariest moment (and this is saying a lot considering she’s had five kids in five and a half years with no multiples-whew!) was at the top of Chichen Itza? Yep, she’s afraid of heights!
-Before becoming a writer, Denny was a professional dancer and actress—Ooh La La!
-Kerri is such a diehard Steelers fan that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette published a story she wrote about it and she got fan mail from all over the world!
-Robin…the men all pause when she walks into the room…and sings. Yep, she’s in a band!
-Loni has two cures for being painfully shy—just do like she did and promote a travelling male review show or join the Navy! She’s done them both!
-Dana may be one of the littlest mermaids, but she is a former rescue EMT! And therefore I’ve appointed her this week’s official glittery pink pond lifeguard!
-Susan once fooled Parisian waiters into thinking she was a food critic and got slammin’ service and free drinks as a result!
-Alethea celebrated her 1-1-11 birthday last year, sparking a tiara-wearing frenzy across the nation!
-Avery once locked herself out of the house while wearing only – wait for it – a robe!
-Pintip is a hardcore foodie and has a Top 5 Dining Experiences list spanning the country!
-Diana used to sing and perform Gilbert and Sullivan light operas and other musicals onstage!
-Masha used to be a TV weather gal, but those tapes are secured at Fort Knox!
Whew, now that we’ve gotten that all out…we have one more confession to make…yes…one final secret to unleash…we all have Spice Girl Names! Because every girl needs one…we’d love to hear yours so feel free to share in the comments section
