We met Her!!

Well, we listened to Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s infomative and very funny talk, she signed our book, let us take a picture, and we gave her beads.

It was amazing.  She is as funny in person, and we all felt like an old friend had stopped by to catch us up on important stuff.  And everything she said about knitting totally applies to beading too, really!!  Between knitters and beaders, it’s only a matter of time till we take over the world. 

And the funniest thing?  Watching the bookstore staff as they watched an overflow crowd knitting.  Standing knitting, sitting knitting, laughing knitting.  The first question was about her dishwasher, that’s how nerdy we all are.  It was fabulous, and totally worth getting home at 11.  Really a great evening.

We’re goin’ to see the Yarn Harlot!!!

Don’t forget, on Friday May 29th, we’re closing early so we can see Stephanie Pearl-McPhee at Legacy Books. Officially, we’re supposed to close at 6, but if we get antsy, (which is, sadly, more likely than not,) we may skate out early so we can be sure and get our book signed.

Actually, “we” here refers to me (your local Bead Hoor) and Michell, who is going with me. Because I’m not reliable enough on my own in circumstances like these. I’m likely to miss the exit, or forget to put on shoes, or something like that. Like saying “OMG, I LOOOOOOVE your stuff (drool embarrassingly, dribble on table) you are soooooo wunnerful!” and fall over. Really. I know how I am around people I nearly worship. So Michell will be there to kick me before I totally boob flake out.  She’s wonderfully competent and controlled and parental like that.

We’ll be back at 10:00 AM Saturday, open and selling beads.  If you come by and we’re gone Friday night, we’re sorry.  But Los Lupes does a tasty margarita. 

Whoopee!!!  Less than 24 hours to go!!! 

Excuse me, I have to go practice being normal for awhile.
