Welcome to the return of Freaky Fug Friday! The prize this week is so good, Lady Gaga is DOING A DANCE:
I think I speak for all of us when I say that THIS IS AMAZING. She looks like Eliza Doolittle if My Fair Lady were about insurance adjusters.
THE TASK: It is too hot, and this is a long weekend. It seems mean to make you do too much. And ergo, I am going to be picking winners at random again this week. All I need from you is an opinion, in the comments: If you had to be trapped in an elevator with Lady Gaga, which Lady Gaga persona would you choose? This Gaga? Meat Dress Gaga? Gaga In An Egg? The more recent Jazzercise Gaga? Quick Change VMAs Gaga? Those are just Gaga Iterations off the top of my head; You may choose any Gaga you like.
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on TUESDAY. Contest is open to US residents only.
THE PRIZE: This will delight you! Megan McCafferty has a new Jessica Darling book out — and it’s a prequel. It’s called Jessica Darling’s It List: The (Totally Not) Guaranteed Guide to Popularity, Prettiness & Perfection, and it is as charming and delightful and darling as you would hope — all you Jessica Darling/Marcus Flutie fans will, of course, NEED to add it to your collection. Per Amazon:
“I hadn’t even gotten to homeroom yet and I’d already discovered five hard truths about junior high:
1. My best friend had turned pretty.
2. She didn’t know it yet.
3. It wouldn’t be long before she did.
4. That knowledge would change everything between us.
5. And there wasn’t a thing I could do about it.
It’s the first day of seventh grade. Is Jessica Darling doomed for dorkdom?
New York Times bestselling author Megan McCafferty’s hilarious new novel will have you laughing, cringing, and cheering for Jessica Darling as she learns that being herself beats being popular, pretty & perfect any day.”
It’s technically for ages ten and up — it’s aimed at younger readers than the original Jessica Darling books — but I think it’s enjoyable for all. Good luck!
