...tears of lament over my lack of adequate fundage to attend the actual BEA :) So if you are broke like me, or bogged down with the other stuff life'll throw at you, sit down and enjoy Armchair BEA. This is my first time participating, and as the first post, we are supposed to introduce ourselves, so here is some random junk about me:
- I like to use my wedding pictures whenever possible, though it was 5 years ago because that was the last time I think I was photogenic.
- I have social anxiety (one of the things that drew me into the anonymity of the blogosphere) but I am KILLER at hiding it. I can put on a charming, funny face while (usually unwillingly) in social situation, but inside I feel like I'm gonna toss my cookies. So next year, when you see me at BEA and I appear cool as a cucumber, you'll know that I'm just acting well and putting all of my years in musical theater to good use. Mom would be so proud!
- Now, seemingly at odds with my last random factoid, I talk a lot. I mean, a LOOOOOOOT. But on the plus side, I'm pretty good at editing myself around people who aren't used to the sheer volume of words I can spit out, I'm pretty funny and I'm quite entertaining with my facial expressions, etc.
- I started my book blog because I realized I was yapping incessantly about every book I read to my poor unfortunate husband, mom, dad, siblings, and even 3 year old. I already had a personal blog, so I decided to branch and out blog about books instead. I have so enjoyed finding like minded book weirdos (I mean that as the highest compliment), you all feed my book addiction and I love you for it!
So that's it for now, I'm looking forward to participating in the rest of Armchair BEA, more than that I'm really really looking forward to the day when I can go to the real thing! But for now, let's all console ourselves in our tear soaked armchairs :)
