If you haven’t ever read the website The Bloggess check it out. It’s one of the most refreshingly witty, snarky and at times downright hysterical blogs out there. If you run a website, you absolutely have to read what she does to people who make ludicrous requests, AKA Will Wheaton Collating Paper, it is sheer genius.
Jenny Lawson, whose blog it is, just wrote a book about her off-beat misadventures through life called Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. So this is what happened last night at her book signing.
We sold out of books in the first half and I signed everything from tongues to metal chickens to xanax bottles, but the most bizarre thing I signed was this…
That totally sweet and normal looking woman? Is Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, who flew all the way out to come to my reading and surprised me so much that I got all fangirly and started rambling about how I dressed up as a werewolf for the last movie and then I misspelled her name on her book. True story.
Lesson here: Be less drunk when you’re signing books. Also, Stephenie Meyer has a complicated name and very pretty hair.
TY to Jenny for the tip
I’m doing another reading tonight near San Francisco. Come? Pretty please?
