Well fuck a duck, I am back in the world I belong.
The real one?
With people? And their breathing? And farting?
It’s just too much arm flesh and air molecules and tote bags. We are much safer here, readers. Let’s never leave again.
I have a few stories from my roadtrip to the “Insurance Capital of the World” where I librarianed it up for 2.5 days that I wanted to share with you because duck a fuck, this month will never end.
I got to see Jon Scieszka in person!!!! Squeee!!!
And–I shit you not–but I got Adam Gidwitz’s autograph!
It’s likely you have no idea who I’m talking about (Alice might), but to a pack of middle-aged librarians, these guys are the the 12-year-old girl’s version of One Direction.
Jon Scieszka wrote The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, which if you haven’t read, you must read now.
You don’t have either? Go to your library then.
Yes I mean right now.
Okay, are you done?
Rock star, right?
Adam Gidwitz wrote my favorite new series A Tale Dark & Grimm, in which he basically un-Disneyfies all these Grimm tales and we get back to the head removal and children eating.
In other conference news, I was woken from a crappy sleep at 2:30 a.m. by a man, and I believe, two women drunkenly trying to get into the room next door. It appeared from my vantage point in front of the peep hole that they could not conquer the difficult task of inserting the key card into the key slot so that other things could be inserted into other slots.
It also appeared as if the bloke did not know the two women (or woman) all that well although one attempted to mount his back several times. She then would let out a peal of laughter that caused my teeth to rattle out of my head and drop to the floor.
I thought to myself: Was I going to audibly witness my first threesome?
After what appeared to be 20 minutes, the guy opened the door and pushed the woman or women inside and said good night.
A minute or so later, one of the room’s occupants attempted to get out again, but was stymied by the door latch. She gets an A for effort though since she bashed that door against the doorframe about 50 times.
Speaker7 is glad to be back home with consistent Internet access so she can continue to churn out
slop posts as a member of Nano Poblano Team. Only 13 left to go!
Jesus…is that true?
