I couldn’t live blog the Geek Girl launch. When I booted up the computer, it didn’t detect a signal, never mind a weak one. But then I thought: Why not put on a time delay?
This turned out to be a good idea, since I’m not sure I could remember the launch today–or at least remember coherently.
We’d like to thank everyone who attended the book signing yesterday! You really helped make it a special day. Darcy and I were overwhelmed!
We’d like to thank Barb Nolan and the Danville Public Library for hosting our party. We would also like to thank BPW for providing the cookies today and we’d like to thank Darcy’s mom, Luanne Jarvis and her aunt, Millie Wilson for being the best publicity agents and promoters we could ask for.
And now, the “live” blogging on time delay:
1:48: cannot get wireless connection. Decide to put live blogging on time delay.
1:49: My daughter is skipping around the room like a maniac.
1:57: just signed a book. It’s almost time and I’m freaking nervous.
2:00: Okay, it is two o’clock and we haven’t officially started. I may have a heart attack.
2:06: Clearly I’m behind the power curve. We’re signing first.
2:07: Just met Jen from TRT! So. Cool.
2:15: Our books are all gone. We sold them all. Dude!
2:19: We are now signing bookplates
2:23: My kids, running amok.
2:26:Darcy’s giving her cheerleading/expectations talk.
2:27: Did you know Steve Martin was a cheerleader?
2:28: So was Kirk Douglas
2:30: So was Ronald Reagan.
2:33:And Ruth Bader Ginsberg (Dude!)
2:34: Local historical cheerleaders now! So cool. We’re making them stand up (but not cheer).
2:36: Darcy’s mom!
2:48: We’re done!
3:00: Wait! Q&A, then the snacks.
3:18: Bathroom break for my daughter.
3:21: Off to see Lincoln without a beard (this is my son)
3:27: Signing more bookplates for book orders.
3:30: My kids have vanished. Am hoping they are with Lincoln.
3:50: My kids return and it’s time to leave. I eat one cookie.
