I can die happy today. But, if not I guess I'll just catch up on laundry.



Cross this off my bucket list:  I "met" The Bloggess.  Insert huge slightly insane grin and wild laughter.  And I also met and photographed Copernicus and Juanita:











I am still pee pants excited that last night we met Jenny Lawson.  She read a hysterical chapter from her new book:  

See how mine is different from the ones on the shelf because it has my NAME on it?  *giddy smile*

If you are not familiar with Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess), you really should be.  She is an absolutely funny gal with a genuine heart.  And that is why I *might* be in love with her.  Oh, and buy her book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened because you will laugh so hard you will need to wear Depends and also Jesus recommended the book.  He says so on the back cover.  So, that's really good, right?



I had planned all these smart things to say to her when I finally got my three seconds with her.  Instead I just gazed at her and mumbled something incredibly obvious and ridiculous like, "Um, ah, I really like your blog.  Um, ah.  And you're so funny.  Uh-huh."  And she was incredibly graceful and looked at me with quiet patience and a lovely smile.



Now I am going to recover by doing some laundry.  And, oh, if I die today - it's okay.  Mission accomplished.

Hi Monica, I found your blog thru your comment on my Scary Mommy guest post ("I am my Mother..."). Love your blog! Looking forward to reading more. I can totally relate to your meeting of the Blogess, as I recently got the chance to meet Jill Smokler at a signing. I had all these things I had planned on saying to her. Sigh....
