So, Friday night I got no sleep. None. Not one measly hour. Blame nerves, blame excitement, blame Assassins Creed II and the eight-ish cans of Mt. Dew that I consumed before bed, but last night, this was me:
So I was kinda tired come Saturday morning. (I almost fell asleep in my eggs.) But it didn't matter, because that afternoon, I went to Borders to meet three awesome people. Kristi (The Story Siren), Chelsea (The Page Flipper), and Susan (Waste Paper Prose). They are all troopers who drove through the Snowpocalypse to see little ol' me.
They are also troopers for going to a sushi place, and watching in horror as a whole eel was brought out. Pictures were taken of said eel, though I do not have them. They might pop up on Chelsea, Susan, or Kristi's blogs. Try not to be horrified.
Then we went to Borders for my first signing, and many pictures were taken, despite my attempts to hide. (Pics were taken by the lovely and talented Susan of Waste Paper Prose. Thanks, Susan!)
Yes, I am well aware that I have chipmunk cheeks, and that I squint. Can't help it, I'm Asain, lol! But we met lovely Tenners Kelly Creagh and Jessica Leader, and there was a fairly large turnout, much more than I expected. So I was happy, and I got to meet so many cool people, always a big plus. (Also, I'm sure my Mt. Dew addiction will show up on someone's blog, so I don't need to mention it here.)
Okay, fine. Here's a Mt. Dew picture.
So, thank you everyone who came, who struggled through waist-deep snow to see me, who braved the evil eel sushi and weird Mt. Dew pictures. Y'all are my heroes. Thanks again.
And then I went home and did this:
