Friday Likes & Gripes

by Brittany Geragotelis

Happy Friday everyone! Per usual, here are my Friday Likes & Gripes:

1. "ANTM" Celeb Sightings—Living in NYC, there are a ton of opportunities to see celebs in their natural habitats. Most recently, my boyfriend Matt was casting for a web show his company is doing and who should stop by to audition? "America's Next Top Model" cycle 4 winner Naima. And speaking of "ANTM" models, my co-workers and I see April from cycle 2 down near our office all the time. She's very pretty in person.
2. Greyson Michael—This kid's rendition of Lady Gaga's Paparazzi makes me actually like the song. Beautiful voice, adorable and talented...maybe the next Justin Bieber? Take a look at him singing below!

3. The word "Adirondack"—Ever get a word stuck in your head and you have no idea why? That's how it is with the word, Adirondack. Strange, I know. But for some reason, every once in a while, I'll get this word stuck in my head and I like it. I like the way it rolls off my tongue. I like the sound it makes and it's just fun to say. I didn't even know what the word meant until I looked it up on Wiki (apparently the Adirondack Mountains are a mountain range located in the northeastern part of NY). Another word I'm fond of: clavicle.
4. The book I'm working on now—I'm 240 pages into writing my latest book, Painless, and I can see the "The End" at the end of the book. If all goes as planned, I will finish writing the first draft within a week. And then it's on to rewrites and edits and then off to query my first agent (you know who you are)!
5. Jackson Pearce—you guys are in for a treat, because Monday I will be posting my interview with Sisters Red author Jackson Pearce. Her latest book is phenomenal and trust me, you'll want to learn more about the mastermind behind it!

1. "America's Next Top Model"—Not that I don't think Krista will make a good model, but I really think Raina should have won "ANTM's" cycle 14. Well, I really thought Jessica should have won, but if it had to be between Raina and Krista, I really think it should have been Raina. She's a Brooke Shields/Denise Richards look-a-like, has a great, positive attitude and a look to die for. Come on, Tyra, wake up and smell the fierceness!
