Luke and I had an amazing night last night. Not only were we able to go off on a rare date night away from the house, we also met Felicia Day. Who is Felicia Day? If you haven’t heard of Felicia Day, she is an awesome geek who was one of the first people to put a show on Youtube (The Guild). She also starred in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog (if you haven’t seen this, please stop reading and GO FIND IT).
If you know who she is already, you may know she wrote a memoir and is touring the United States signing books. Luke and I were privileged to attend the book signing last night in Milwaukee, WI at Boswell Books. This is our second signing at this book store (the first being Jim Gaffigan).
We arrived around 5:20 PM and got in line. The line was probably already 80 people long and would soon extend outside the building and down the street. The signing was going to start at 7, so Luke and I took turns going to Starbucks and checking out the selection of books around the store. I also hid a few of my origami bookmarks in several books around the store. If you’re in the area, be sure to contact me if you find one!
Once the signing started, the line moved pretty quickly as people met Felicia and went on their merry way. Several people squealed with excitement as they exited the area where she was signing. I was excited. SO excited. I forced myself to take deep breaths so I wouldn’t freak out once it was our turn.
Felicia Day was extremely sweet and seemed genuinely interested in my blog. She told me that she had never seen a bookmark like mine before and thought it was really cool (she kept one). She said good luck on the blog too! <3
When it was Luke’s turn, she yelled at him for having a broken hand (she was joking). 😉 Good times.
Have you read Felicia Day’s memoir yet? If not, I have a newly SIGNED copy to giveaway this week. The book is fun, insightful, and awesome. I highly recommend checking it out, even if you don’t win the giveaway! Good luck. (Felicia Day and anyone associated with her have nothing to do with this giveaway. I was lucky enough to have an extra copy for her to sign so I could give one to you!)
Giveaway ends May 3rd!
