So, Clementine dressed herself this morning. ("Aw by mysef!")
And yes, in case you're wondering, we did go out like that, to a very cute store for the procurement of gifties. The store surprised us by having a playroom with a slide and everything! Love! Hello, new favorite place for procurement of gifties!
Later in the day, some mommy influence was exerted on hair and wardrobe:
But you know, I think I like Clementine's "look" better! :-)
And now: tired eyes tired eyes tired eyes. BED. And I am on a spate of awesome reads I need to tell you about, books that are conspiring to keep me up past my bedtime! You know how somehow you hit a whole slump of meh books and you start to feel kind of disenchanted? This is the opposite of that. More soon, but I'll tell you titles:
- The White Cat by Holly Black
- The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
- Supernaturally by Kiersten White
All SO GOOD. So. Good. In the case of the first two, I've been meaning to read them forever, but my reading has slooooowed down these days and I've finally caught up to them. Whew. And HELLO, why didn't anyone tell me they were this good??? Oh wait, a zillion people told me. I just. Whatever. And Supernaturally, I was lucky enough to swap ARCs with Kiersten and it's even better than Paranormalcy!!!! Just wait!
And speaking of Kiersten, I have an event to announce! I'm so excited about this! Did I mention I'm going to Comic Con? Oh man, Jim and I loOoOoOoOoOove Comic Con -- which has got to be the biggest comic book convention in the world (anyone?), add to that super duper multi-media nerdfest wonderland extravaganza, all in San Diego to boot, with beaches and zoos and leaping killer whales (Oh my!) And not only am I going there, I am going to be on an amazing panel, moderated by Nathan Bransford, along with ...
- Kiersten White
- Stephanie Perkins (You guys! Steph and Kiersten! :-D)
- Andrea Cremer
- Amanda Hocking
- Tahereh Mafi
YAY! I will be doing another panel, but that one's still in the works. Days, details to come. Hope to see you there. It is The Best Time Ever!
