Mystery Day!

No, today is not mysterious…I learned that Saturday, January 21, 2012 will be MYSTERY DAY on the exhibit floor at ALA Mid-winter in Dallas. I’m so excited – happily I live in Dallas and can easily be in the convention center on The Day…of course, I will likely be working on the exhibit floor but I will definitely be dropping by the Pop Top Stage as often as possible. Other days will likely have even more author-like events. YAY!!!!

Check it out:

      Oh I don’t know – meeting someone in person I do become Uber Fan Girl and the ability to talk in complete sentences eludes me. True, it greatly amuses my friends and family who observe (from a safe distance) this phenomena but it tends to get terribly uncomfortable for the object of my fandom. Strangely people tend to not like being stared at (sans blinking) whilst hearing ‘omg, uh, omg, uh, omg, uh…”. Or the ever popular “wow! thank you! wow! thank you! Wow! Thank you!” in response to receiving attention from yon talented person.
