very fun and full day today.
i started by writing at a cafe. then headed
to melissa marr’s signing at the mysterious
galaxy, where part of the brat pack (amy
and heather) met up with me.
it was lovely meeting melissa. she was more
petite than i imagined and so vivacious and
random and fun! she threw prizes at the audience
and i WON a beautiful black and purple wicked
lovely shirt in german! yes, be jealous. i squeed
then we headed to the ocean and had a
wonderful sunset picnic, the bubs played
ball with the love and i read (GIVE UP THE GHOST
by fellow 09 deb megan crewe) and enjoyed
an especially fragrant passion fruit tea. a near
perfect day, truly. this is the good life.
i also got confirmation finally for an OC signing.
