Happy Friday the 13th! Although... most people don't see this day as happy. Thirteen has always been considered an unlucky number just like Friday has always been considered an unlucky. The fear of Friday the 13th may have started with the Last Supper, the day where Jesus Christ and his followers had their last meal together. There were 13 people present at the meal and it was the last time they were all together before Jesus was imprisoned and martyred on...(cue scary DUN DUN DUH'S) A FRIDAY! Many books have been written about creepy events that take place on a Friday the 13th and there is an actual phobia attributed to the fear of this day! It's called "paraskevidekatriaphobia" a fear of Friday the 13th. Some people are so afraid of what might happen to them on this day that they don't even leave their homes! Are you scared of Friday the 13th? I hope not, because January the 13th and October the 13th of 2017 are going to be Freaky Fridays! But even if you are, you can stay home and play MissO.com all day! Stay safe everyone!
Star Darlings Twelve-Book Set! A few weeks after I received the tickets and small gifts, the books came in the mail! All twelve of them! I was so excited I put them all on display and started reading Book 1 almost immediately. The books are written by a father-mother team Shana Muldoon Zappa and Ahmet Zappa (they have a little girl!) There is a book in the series featuring each of the Star Darlings: 1: SAGE and the Journey to Wishworld (the one I'm reading) 2: LIBBY and the Class Election 3: LEONA's Unlucky Mission 4: VEGA and the Fashion Disaster 5: SCARLET Discovers True Strength 6: CASSIE Comes Through 7: PIPER's Perfect Dream 8: ASTRA's Mixed-Up Mission 9: TESSA's Lost & found 10: ADORA finds a Friend 11: CLOVER's Parent Fix 12: GEMMA and the Ultimate Standoff So far I really like Sage's character and the book (so much that I brought it on vacation with me to read!). The books are really cool because they each have a little panel that opens and shows you the book's featured character's, Wish Pendant and Power Crystal (Sage's Wish Pendant is her necklace and her Power Crystal is Lavenderite.) They also have a bio of all the Star Darlings and pretty, sparkly, colored paper. I love Love, LOVE, the Star Darlings books, and totally recommend them! Definitely read these books :D Again, thank you so much Juliette and Hermine for sending me these and I make sure to review them on the site <3
A few Saturdays ago, I received a package containing tickets to see Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, and Mike Posner! (The package containing the Star Darlings twelve-book set, was sent separately.) The package also came with a bunch of other stuff I didn't expect... It came with: Four concert tickets An itinerary for the trip A congratulations note FOUR iPhone cases! A set of stickers A gift card to pay for a fancy dinner and the rental car And it all came in a travel-themed, Miss O & Friends pocket portfolio! The tickets are for Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas's Future Now tour which is stopping in Anaheim, California! The trip was all expenses paid which includes our plane tickets to fly to Cali! My whole family is so excited for the awesome vacation we are going to have! I'd like to give a HUUGGGEEE thank you to Juliette and Hermine Brindak, and everyone on the Miss O team who put this together for us, we are so thankful!
Today is Father's Day so tell the Father figure in your life you love them! Make sure to give them a hug and maybe even a special gift. Dad's may not get as much credit as Mom's but they are still special and we couldn't go on without them. :) To all the Dad's out there (they probably aren't on this site but still lol) we love you and appreciate everything you do!
I have been kind of wondering this for a while what happens when you report a user. I have been using Miss O for many years and over them I have met a couple of unsavory people who I though were abusing the website. I did what was recommended and pushed the "Report user" button, however I'm not really sure what exactly that does... If a Intern or just anyone who knows could tell me what happens after that, I'd appreciate it and probably feel a little less guilty too lol.
Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's independence day. Mexico's Independence day (which is Mexico's most important national holiday) is September 16th. Cinco de Mayo (which is Spanish for the 5th of May) is the day the Mexican Army defeated the French forces at the Battle of Puebla, May 5th, 1862. This was significant because the Mexican Army was horribly outnumbered (by about 2:1), they were also not as well equipped as the French Army. However, Mexico stood strong and came out victorious! Vamos a celebrar (let's celebrate)! Do you and your family celebrate Cinco de Mayo? How do you all celebrate? What holidays do you like to celebrate? Let me know in the comments :)
