One Year of HGL

Today is the… wait for it… first anniversary of my blog, Holly Goes Lightly, which has recently been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

In honor of this special day, I will be awarding one lucky reader with a very imaginary prize if he or she answers all of the following questions about me correctly. (If you are a faithful reader of the blog, this will be no problem for you.)

Here are the questions, and, godspeed, my friends:

1)For what Broadway show did Holly win a Tony award?
2)What was the name of Holly’s second bestselling novel?
3)What is Oprah’s nickname for Holly?
4)Who stalked Holly this past Valentine’s Day: Colin Firth or Colin Farrell?
5)Where is Holly’s summertime vacation villa located?
6)What is the name of Holly’s children's nanny? (Bonus: Why did her second nanny quit?)
7)How many children does Holly have: one or two?
8)Where is Holly’s penthouse located?
9)Holly sang the national anthem (and received a standing ovation) at: the 2009 Pittsburgh/ Arizona Super Bowl or the 2010 Vancouver Olympics opening ceremony?
10) When Holly passes gas, does it smell like roses or lavender?

Whoever correctly answers all of these questions will receive a free copy of Holly’s bestselling memoir: Going Rogue.


First person to answer all questions correctly wins my book, which only consists of a dust jacket, but it's a cool dust jacket, I think. It took me like fifteen minutes to design it.

Congratulations, Holly! John must be right, you are mysterious...I've known you for a few years but don't think I know the answers to any of these questions. :) I like your cover. I'm still a dummy when it comes to the whole graphic thing. Just figured out how to add blogpatrol :)

Happy Blogging Anniversary! I totally hope your blog has made big plans for the special day. I'm seeing a candlelit dinner and a long walk on the beach at midnight... you two (you and the Blog) totally rock together! Oh do I see something sparkly in the blogs header just for you??? eeeeeeeee(squealing in my high pitched happy voice).

Thanks for the congratulations! Can't believe no one knew the answers, however, to the questions. (Everyone knows, for instance, that #10 is a trick question- I NEVER pass gas.)

Thank you! Excellent job! Just for attempting you get the imaginary gift! And also, let me know if you need someone to design your eventual book cover for you. Not to sound boastful, but I think I may have a knack for book-cover design.
