Friday Happy Hour

From Mental Floss: "Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion..."

(Now that I actually have followers of my blog, I’d love to see your responses in the comments here. Tell me what you think, friends!)

Are there any intentionally misspelled — or unintentionally, I guess — business names that make you reach for your red pen?

~ All of them! I know that sometimes businesses do this intentionally, and that it can actually bring in customers, but it has the opposite effect on me.

Is there any movie whose preview initially gave you an entirely different picture of the film?

~ I know this has happened, but I can’t think of an example right now.

If TV characters competed in an elaborate Fictional Jeopardy! tournament, who do you think would come out on top?

~ I’d love to see Peter Griffin from Family Guy, Michael Scott from The Office, and Phil Dunphy from Modern Family in a Jeopardy! tournament. I don’t know who would win, but it doesn’t really matter. It would definitely be entertaining!

Time for another edition of What Are You Reading? Do you recommend it?

~ I just finished The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian, and I highly recommend it. I was extremely hesitant to read this book; I loved some earlier books of Bohjalian’s, but detested the last book of his that I read (Skeletons at the Feast). However, this book sounded so interesting that I gave it a chance, and I’m so glad I did!

I just started The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman.
