Ketchup With Us: Prompt #2

Michele: "19 posts! NINETEEN, MEL!" 
Mel: "And our goal was 10. TEN, MICHELE!"

We were excited to exceed our goal in our very first ever Ketchup With Us link-up! You guys were so creative and supportive in spreading the word. Thank you! Michele and I decided to randomly choose ONE post to feature in each link-up.  Never mind the fact that this post made me guffaw. 

Without further ado, our esteemed Ketchup With Us Featured Writer for this week is ...

Honey Badger

What's that? You've never even heard of the Ketchup With Us link-up?  

(To previous linkers) Okay, please feel free to check your Facebook and Twitter feed on your phones. the back. Is that an iPhone5? Do you like it? Better screen you say? (Michele elbows Mel) Ouch. Oh, right. Back to business. (To newbies) Hi new friends and writers. For a quick, three-minute Cliff's Notes version of what's the gist of this is, click here

On the 1st and 15th of each month, Michele and I will post a picture or video with a writing prompt on our blogs. DON'T WORRY! You...right there. The one in the David Bowie t-shirt. Don't cry! I promise it is NOT that hard. Each of our blogs will have the same prompt. Please respond in 57 WORDS OR LESS in the form of a story, a poem, a song you wrote in the shower, a ferret food jingle or whatever strikes your fancy. All we want is...YOUR VOICE. Just kidding. We really just want your creativity. Each week, we'll post a Featured Writer who poured it all out for us in the previous link-up.

The Rules of Play ... plus a few other friendly suggestions:

  1. Follow us on Twitter (Michele/Mel ) and Facebook (Michele /Mel)
  2. Post 'Ketchup With Us' button (below) in the body of your post.
  3. Link your entry's URL (not your blog URL) to the linky at the bottom of one of our posts.
  4. Tweet us your post with the hashtag #KetchupWithUs so we can RT your ketchup-y self.
  5. Please turn off your captcha for commenting. It makes people angry. (I won't mention names. But I'll give you a clue. Her OR his name starts with an 'Mi' and ends with the sound 'SHELL')

 Shameless ODNT plug-when we planned out this prompt, we brought up a post Michele wrote a while back entitled, Let's Embarrass Me. Topic: Famous Crushes. This post is one in which I revealed that I had a mad crush on Dean Cain...sigh...oh, sorry, where was I? Superman? Nope. That's not it.

Oh, right! The prompt. Here it is in all it's glory:

'KETCHUP WITH US' - Prompt#2

Tell us in 57 words or less about your biggest celebrity crush from childhood. Or, you know, now. Either way.
Fun Fact: Harry is Michele's favorite.


  1. I am having trouble getting the button to work, but I am a moron so it could easily be something I figure out by the time you read this. Thanks for the fun reads!

  2. No. Those buttons give us a heck of a time, too. :P Let's see. Grab the HTML code under the picture IN this post or ON the sidebar. Then plop it into your HTML view on your post. I hope this helps!

  3. How freaky is this - my blog covered celebrity crushes on 9 Sept - great minds, eh? :)
