So you can imagine my joy when I heard David Mitchell would be appearing at D.C. to promote his new book. I squealed.
So I got almost late to the event but made it, and had a wonderful time. Mitchell is such a humble and fabulous person, and I respect him much more for being such a unique author and wonderful person. He also answered my question, and gave me some quotations I won't forget for a long time.
And here's what he signed in my copy of The Bone Clocks
So as I head to CT to judge a high school tournament in Yale during the weekend, I will be devouring this book. I might rematch Cloud Atlas too.
So excited for this opportunity, and for everyone else who won! For those who didn't make it, feel free to ask me to take pics/tell you about anything there, and as long as I'm legally allowed to relay any information, I will do so!
Thanks so much to the other BZP staffies and to The LEGO Group!
If you didn't know before, I compete for George Mason's Forensics Team (no, not CSI-forensics). It's competitive public speaking (think Speech & Debate but in college). At the start of the year we go for four to five days to southern Maryland for a special team-wide retreat. The title of the blag entry refers to the fact that the house in which the coaches stayed was called Valhalla (and the name fit perfectly for the house. It was UH-MAY-ZING).
Anywho, we use the time to take pics of the team and the people so we can use them on the team's site, but one of the pictures of all the officers on the team ended up looking like we were the cast of a sitcom, so I can't help myself but share the image with y'alls.
Anywho, my (Forensics) friends are purdy.
NOW BACK TO REAL LIFE (AND BZP DUTIES)
