Feel The Love

I am happy to report that this week's make-up DELIRIUM tour went ENTIRELY better than the original! I had a great time in Winnetka meeting Robert of The Book Stall and talking poetry, and I had amazing school events in both Illinois and Texas, and I rocked it out at some of my favorite indies: Anderson's in Naperville, and Blue Willow Bookshop in Houston.

But more importantly...I got PRESENTS!!

Anyone who knows me well knows that I looooove getting gifted (I love giving gifts, as well--Christmas in my house always looks like Santa Clause's elves threw an enormous celebratory kegger). So thanks to the wonderful Mindy Janicke and Michele Moore Luker for the AWESOME Delirium-themed shirt ("We don't follow--we stalk"), which really helped me feel the love. I plan on rocking it all around NYC and then showing off the pics here.

Thank you, too, to the students of Pasadena Memorial High School, for the INCREDIBLE gift bag they put together full of all of my favorite things. Seriously...their gifts to me came from the result of an author study, and each one is tailored just for yours truly! They gave me dozens of individual packets of my favorite substance in the world--ketchup!--each of which was wrapped up in a quote from one of my books. They also gave me a bag of coffee (*tears up) and gatorade for post-workout inspiration. Soooo amazing. After the sweet-as-pie librarian at Oak Ridge High School today surprised me with a beautiful bracelet, I'm thinking I could totally get used to this southern hospitality thing....

It was so wonderful to be able to meet you last night! You were charming and funny and I love your work motto :) You are a huge inspiration for me, so it was a very fan girl moment to be able to share space with you in B&N.

Don't forget us in Houston!
