Whoa, that came out slightly more vehemently than intended. But you guysssss, why is there school and who invented it? I kind of want to blog about it, because there are lots of interesting tidbits that I find super funny, but I would probably be expelled. So nope.
Tour re-cap. I had the best tour ever. I met tons of nice people, a rude taxi-driver, some very nice taxi-drivers, some old friends and new friends, and my fellow Cabinet Curators! I went to interesting cities I had not been to before, and I spoke to bajillions of school children and signed lots of books and it was great. I took no pictures, though. At all.
So I scoured the internet and found some that my agent took, and then I randomly wrote to Emma Trevayne asking for a picture of her shoes and luckily I don't think Emma cares if she gets unhinged emails from me, so here's what we've got:
Reading and Signing at Boulder Bookstore, in Colorado
|Awesome shop. Super awesome people. Polka-dot soooooocks.|
Cabinet Curators in Portland:
Claire, Emma, and I were in Portland for panels and signings and such, and we got no group pictures! Which is a travesty really. But Emma's shoes! Aren't they grand? They are.
Also, Wordstock did this cool thing where alllllll the authors sat in a red plastic wing-chair, and Andie Petkus took their pictures. Here's mine:
|I like that red-plastic wing-chair. I want it.|
Curator Katherine was unable to come to Portland, which was sad, but she was there in SPIRIT in the form of a snazzy houseplant:
|It's hard to see, but Katherine is wearing sunglasses and a scarf, as cool houseplants should, and rocking a wild haircut.|
I have no pictures of the skyscraper hotel in Austin, or of San Francisco, or Golden Gate Bridge even though I drove right across it, or when we met Laini Taylor and she came to Claire's and my reading (O_O), or of the visit we did at a haunted dessert restaurant in Portland where April Tucholke and Kendare Blake and I talked about STABBING.
But it was fun and I'm super grateful I got to go, and now I need to do homework or write or something, because Dead Man's Palace needs to be handed in in like three weeks.
