Last night I went to a book signing at Vroman's in Pasadena for the very radiant and hilarious Stephanie Klein.
In case some of you don't know this femme fatale wordsmith, her blog is Greek Tragedy and her first book is called Straight Up and Dirty. Both are fantastic reads. The signing last night was for her new book Moose, which is a memoir of her stints at fat camp.
The moment she walked into the room, I felt my geek switch flick on. I couldn't stop smiling at her, I think my pupils were dilated into little heart shapes, and as soon as I made it up to the table to get my book signed, I gushed, "Ireadyourblogeveryday! Can I take a picture with you?"
Then I realized that my geekometer was ticking at HIGH, which made me get embarrassed and blush profusely, which thankfully you can't see in the picture. But I'm sure she thought, "Oh that poor girl. She looks so normal but is such a spaz." Actually, she's probably too nice to think that. Anyway, it was a complete joy to meet her in person and I cannot wait to read Moose. I'll let ya know what I think when I finish it.
