The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (Or I get a freezing bucket of icewater dumped on my head).



So, I was challenged by author Michelle Madow (also Leon Regenberg and blogger Elise Carstairs) to do the Ice Bucket challenge.  Nothing more to say, really, except I hope Katie McGarry, Adi Alisaid, and my editor Natashya Wilson have as much fun as I did.  ;-P

Here we go!

  1. I do not even understand how I finished up right here, however I thought this publish was good. I don’t realize who you are but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger for those who aren’t already Cheers!

  3. No offense meant, but I personally think this challenge is stupid (don't criticize me, please, I'm just saying what I think and I'm trying to be polite about it. If I'm not, I apologize), but of course it's for the good cause, so why not? It's good to know you had fun doing it, Julie.
    Love,

    1. You're right , but compare this to many other challanges or other trends (which aren't for a good cause) ... so this is not that stupid/crazy if you compare .;-)
      (No critic ;-))

    2. I agree, which is why I said that since it's for a good cause, why not. I'm just thinking about the ways this could go wrong (and, believe me, there are, and it's already gone wrong, here, in France).
      So I'm not saying Julie shouldn't have done this (or anyone else, for that matter). I was just expressing my opinion while acknowledging this challenge might have been a good idea. I really wasn't trying to start an argument.
      And thanks for expressing your opinion too.

    4. Well, doing the ice bucket challenge has become a trend and people tend to do extremely stupid in those cases (and completely forget the original goal of the challenge, sadly). There's that one guy who got liquid nitrogen instead of a bucket of icewater and he was sent to the hospital. His brain might have been severely damaged. I haven't checked the news about him since I think it's his own fault for being this stupid, but that's the thing that shocked me most.

  4. Nice Challange , Julie !...

    ..

    Ok-sorry if I am using this comment to tell something to you (also julie) ... I've red so many texts about the readers if your Blood of Eden series ... and lots of people (also myself) would like to read something more about Kanin and his life (his apperiance was a bit too short)...
    I just wanted to say that ...
    (Of course you could write your opinion in the reply ...)
    Bye bye !
