I’ve Been Hooked From The Start

Hello Flysters and happy Monday! Many of you may know today’s guest post author. He was mistaken as a stripper at the LaLaBec NYE Party. He is a legitimate author. He has seen many a hooker in his lifetime, but only from afar. He can handle any kind of baggage you throw at him, even emotional baggage. This guy has been one of the most devoted Flysters from the beginning. This guy faces his setbacks and never gives up on his dreams, so naturally we get along. He is my cheerleader, my supporter, clapper to my jokes, and most of all, my friend.

Please give a warm welcome to The Hook, because he is bragging on me, and that is much better than me bragging on me.

An actual book? What is this sorcery?

Also, here is an obligatory book plug: It’s true, I own my very own autographed copy of The Bellman Chronicles. It is sitting on my bed side table. Well, it isn’t really autographed, but maybe one day it will be. I haven’t been able to finish his book yet due to this thing called blogging that has taken over my life, but I can guarantee you that I will be taking it with me on my next vacation. Because it is fun to read about hotel visitors while being a hotel visitor, right?

Why I Love Becca: A Top Eleven List.

Because any schmuck can write a Top Ten list..

DISCLAIMER: And this is solely in the unlikely event my wife reads this, by “love”, I mean the respect that exists between two bloggers, not the hot, sweaty passion that exists between two bodies locked in the throes of passion.

Moving on…

1. She has a big heart. Seriously, she can’t wear a bathing suit.

2. Her talent knows no limits. She is adept in philanthropy. She can pirouette with the best of them. Heck, for all I know, she has the proportionate speed and agility of a spider…

3. Positive is her middle name. Okay, I cannot confirm this, – it could be Gladys for all I know –  but I don’t believe I’ve ever read a negative post on her blog. Ever. No one can say that about me, I’ll tell you.

4. She bought my book. Yes, she was the one. I don’t know if she liked it, but she spent her hard-earned cash on it, so she’s aces in my book. So to speak.

5. Blogging, vlogging, you name it, she can do it. Before you cry foul, this is entirely separate from #2. I’m talking about social media skills here, people. Becca isn’t a one -trick pony. This filly has mad skills!

6. She is an extraordinarily cute mammal. Once again, I’m speaking platonically here. There is simply no denying her beauty.

7. She’s willing to open her heart and share the things that keep her up at night. There are millions of bloggers out there, writing about everything from baking to sex, but not everyone is willing to travel to those places that leave us vulnerable and open to ridicule. Fortunately for her readers, Becca is fearless.

8. People like her. They really like her. She’s earned the respect and friendship of the Daily Posts’ darling,  Le Clown, and as Jack Nicholson once said, that ain’t bad. Actually her following is legion and growing by the minute.

9. If you haven’t read her work on The Indie Chicks, there’s something seriously wrong with you. And that’s all I have to say about that.

10. She’s willing to laugh at herself. Not to mention, she has a kick-ass work ethic and an inexhaustible supply of ambition. She’s going places, folks. And I knew her when.

11. She’s a credit to the Ginger race.

Editor’s note: Even if she is a huge dye jobbing phony.

And that’s why I love Becca.

    But seriously, everything he said is true. You are THE woman among women.

  2. Ok, couple things:
    1.) Hook, you have a real book, not an electronic one — yet another reason why I like you.
    2.) #11 el oh el

  3. I had a fantastic comment and then I read everyone else’s comment and not only forgot my comment but was overwhelmed at how awesome their comments were sooo all I have for you now is “Yaaaaay!!” Pretty boring I know but trust me, I laughed and enjoyed the post very much 🙂

  4. Aw, beautiful! Best compliments – and all so true! ^.^

  5. I like this guy, Hook! His disclaimer was especially sweet. Definitely scores points for honoring his wife. Plus, he thinks “positive” is your middle name. And well, you already know how I feel about that!

    • You really have something great going with the optimism. It is incredible how much a simple positive mindset can change things in your life. Go Anka! My fellow PYT 😉

  6. Very well put – and completely ACCURATE!

  7. Ahhh, very nice blog-love post, Hook.
    Becca, how many pages is the book? That looks like a LOT of bellman stories. I’ll have to put it on an eReader and make the type smaller, so it won’t take so long to read. 😉

  8. By the way, you’re my friend too.

  9. The verdict is in: You’re a hit, Becca! Savor the flavor, young lady. You’ve earned every accolade.
    And thank you for returning the platonic blog love. Today’s title – and the praise that followed – made my day!

  10. can “a big heart” count as a third breast?

  11. “She’s a credit to the Ginger race” Fiction. She’s a pretender. A phony. A fraud. But I’m a Flyster™ anyhow…

  12. That’s sweet Hook. Becca is one of my favorite bloggers!

  13. So today’s post has basically been mutual ego stroking? I can live with that! 😉

  14. Becca, you picked a great guest blogger. Hook and I go way back. He’s a good guy and wrote a great post.

  15. Wowm Hook, I think that’s the longest I’ve ever seen you be nice on a topic (excluding Vampire Lover, daughter, or comic-con),

    An excellent list of reasons.
    And Kudos to you for delving into the reason for number one, instead of just enjoying the fact that she was naked poolside.

  16. I don’t know who I love more now, The Hook or Becca

  17. You’re not a real Ging? What color is the rug!? (Crude, sorry. Only way to ask)

  18. fearlessleaderofthedumbasshorde

    I found Becca quite by accident and I’m glad I did. More importantly, I wanna know how much I’d have to pay The Hook and Le Clown to write good shit about me on my blog. I need the hits. 🙂 But seriously, folks…Becca stopped by my place and realized that she too is a Dumbass. She’s my kind of people.

    • fearlessleaderofthedumbasshorde

      After some thought I realized that what I wrote didn’t come out right. I was NOT implying that Becca paid anyone to write nice things about her. I was, however, implying that I would HAVE to pay someone to write good things about me. I am a Dumbass.

    • Dumbasses unite! Thanks for the compliment. I am sure you could bribe them. Neither of them have many weaknesses, but if you can find them and play on them, you might get a post ;).

  19. The Hook,
    Le Clown says: spread the love when it comes to Becca, like a wild case of herpes during a Frat party. There’s no stopping La Becca.
