Many of you, along with authors E. Lockhart, Maureen Johnson, and Ellen Kushner, sent this screamingly funny video to me. "It started off as Hogwarts now it’s Lord of the Flies." Total love.
This is so brilliant. Wish I’d thought of it. Don’t you want to go make your own literal videos, now?
After you finish viewing it, please go visit my Torso Twin and fellow Bonnie Tyler warbler, Shannon Hale, oinks.squeetus.com and tell her you love her. *sigh* I miss her.
*NEW YORK CITY PEEPS*
If you are in the vicinity of Park Slope, Brooklyn, this Saturday, come out to see me at the Barnes & Noble on 7th Avenue between 5th & 6th Streets. I will be taking questions, giving ridiculous answers, possibly singing the above song for the last time, and signing books.
Park Slope B&N
267 7th Avenue (@6th Street)
Hope to see you there. Also, don’t forget about the Fantasy Road Trip video contest: www.fantasyroadtripcontest.com
It is still raining in NYC. Apparently, we are living in an alternate NYC, which is really Seattle, but without the gorgeous views and the good coffee. The coffee has been sucking lately. What up, NYC? Is it the water? Does it give us great bagels but brown-water-with-a-bitter-dirt-aftertaste kind of coffee? If you live in Brooklyn and you have found a jim-dandy cup of coffee (starting to sound a little "Twin Peaks" here…), by all means, let me know.
Must finish my short story today or die trying. I’ve been saying this for a week. And then I get in there under the car hood and go, hmmmm….did I really put this blue wire near the red? That doesn’t seem right. But where does it go? Or do I need a new wire? And I KNOW that transmission is in wrong. (Funny to use car parts as an analogy when you don’t even own a car. But that’s how I roll. Don’t judge me.)
Alright. Must get boy to school and continue in my search for non-dirt-tasting cup of coffee.
Don’t forget about Saturday!
