So guess who I met. Almost an entire week ago. (I know, I know. I should have said something sooner about meeting this person, or at least having her stamp my book. It was technically "meeting." But anyhow.)
I am not joking you. The amazing, fantastical mind that wrote the phenomenon that is The Hunger Games Trilogy. The books that just about inspired me to do anything.
Yeah, I met the author.
No big deal.
It was amazing! She has a hand condition so she signs books rather than stamps them. We also got a free key chain that has the Mockinjay pin, Coal, and The Pearl. If you haven't read it yet, yes, that will sound like nothing. But it's actually pretty cool. It also had something else on it, but I couldn't figure out what it was and neither could my sister.
Speaking of famous people, I was at Chicago's Country Music Festival yesterday. Yes, I love country music. (It's one of my biggest pet peeves that people instantly think you're peculiar because of a love for country music. I can just as easily think you're weird for wearing whatever shoes you happen to be wearing at the moment. Chew on that.)
And the reason we went to this festival is to see a brand-spanking-new country band that I happen to be in love with. The Band Perry. Their singles "Hip To My Heart" and "If I Die Young" are genius.
And just to leave you with a tune in your head...
Have a great extra day off!
