Just Thursday Blog Hop: The Mundane Metro

Just Thursday Blog Hop: The Mundane Metro

just-thursday-09

This week it is up to me to host the Just Thursday blog hop, in which I take turns with Nuvofelt and RebekahFor the theme of the challenge, minding the mundane, I chose a snap of an underground station. What is normally a mundane place was at this particular station brightened up by some simple yet effective street art. 

Is there something mundane around you that is spiced up a bit by an unexpected twist, like my underground station? Or is there simply something mundane around you that you’d like to share for this blog hop? Blog about it and come back to this post to share you link!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art

If I were asked by some misguided soul to produce cover art for a work of art, I’d go with the above photo of Olomouc for the song below set in Olomouc. Both the photo and the song are quirky and stylised, hence a match.

In case you wonder, Olomouc is a small town in the Czech Republic, a miniature Prague. The song appears to deal with an elderly married couple playing sex role games in a hotel room, but I wouldn’t know.

Test Yourself

Test Yourself

I love tests, the sillier the better! Here are some silly and some smart ones for you to try out too.

Your Victorian Penname

This test is designed for writerly ladies, who would need a gender non-specific pseudonym in the Victorian era. Or else they could just claim that their work was a translation because apparently, female writers were a shame, while female translators were okay.

Get your name here.

My Victorian pen name would be Meriwether Evans. I could never spell this right.

Your Reading Speed

This test tells me that I read 84% faster than American national average, which however equals to the speed of an average college student. Disappointing.

Test your speed here.

I read as slowly as an average college student. Boo.

Your Procrastination Level

This test didn’t work for me because it insists that I don’t procrastinate that much. They’re fatally wrong.

Test yourself here.

They're very wrong. *mean laugh*
