HEY, LOCALS! Come see me at the Barnes & Noble in Northpark Mall this Saturday from 1-3 p.m. I'll be signing books but if you don't want one come anyway. I want to meet you! And for those who are wondering who won the book giveaway, scroll to the bottom of this post.
Do you have a date for Valentine's Day? I do. It's February 14th. Which is today. Woo hoo! I hope you have a good one. So far, mine hasn't been great. I had wanted to post a sweet photo of my cat wearing a construction paper heart around his face. Similar photos have been floating around the web and thought they were cute.
Now I hate them.
Have you ever tried to stuff a uncooperative's cat's head through a little paper hole then tried to photograph them? Well, Annie Leibovitz I am not. The best photo I could muster was this:
Grumpy Cat, Moms from Mars edition
So I improvised, deciding to use inanimate objects because the are much easier to pose. The first victim was a silly Howard Dean bobblehead my son found on clearance and purchased as a joke.
And we're gonna take hearts in South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota... YEEEAAHH! (Click the photo for the real thing.)
Then I found a dancing hamster dressed up like an army soldier....
Don't ask, don't tell.
And, of course, I had to dress up my beloved Thor
. The poor guy's been through so much.
I was going to write something scandalous involving the phrase "Hammertime!" but decided against it.
Anyway, I'm sorry my project was a bust. I hope your Valentine's Day is still awesome. If it's not, don't sweat it. The whole thing's kind of silly, though it does involve chocolate. And chocolate doesn't care if you're attached or single. Huzzah!
As for those of you who are curious as to who won the autographed copies of my book, the winner in the evil clown naming contest
He had me at Beezelbozo. As soon as I read that I knew it was the one. Not only will I be sending him an autographed book, but a bonus, as well. It's another terrible awful gift exchange present. Ain't it beautiful!
Love the jaunty hat!
As for the other winner, who was picked randomly though her suggestions were mighty fine indeed, it's Helena Fortissima
. I'll be contacting both winners via email to make shipping arrangements.
Thanks, again, to all who entered my giveaway. It was fun reading all of the names. Hope you all have a happy Valentine's Day, too.
Ciao for now!
