Age: 25 (Michael Jordan plus two or minus 20)
Where I live: Davenport, IA
Where I call “home”: Ioway!
Why I blog: Ditto to the other nerdgirls…and because I am horribly vain and badass…and nerdy…
What part of BEDA I’m most excited about: Getting to read posts by Lindsay, Jill and Jen EVERY DAY! I’m glowing with nerdgirl knowledge.
Why I’m doing BEDA: Lindsay threw down a sparkly gauntlet! and because I need to get back in the habit of posting efficiently and regularly. Like Jen said, it takes me f-o-r-e-v-e-r to write a post so this BEDA bootcamp should whip me into shape.
How I first discovered Maureen Johnson/BEDA: from nerdgirl Lindsay! and then Jen and I met her at Leakycon (see Jen’s picture. no seriously SEE IT because we looking like total she-wolves in it) where I had her sign Suite Scarlett for Lindsay to make up for the Meg Cabot book she didn’t get signed but Lindsay ended up already having a signed copy…
Something other BEDA people might not know about me: Sometimes I wish I was a Trekkie. I have also never seen Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV show– I actually used to watch the movie alot when I was little–totally backwards, I know) and I am DEEPLY ashamed of that.
Another blog I follow: I used to REALLY like Readymade’s blog before they split it all up into different categories…now it confuses me and I just run and hide when I go there… (and I know you can just read the Editor’s Notes and it feels like a single blog–I’m slowly working up to that) But it was where I first discovered the Cordwainer’s Workshop which I will probably feature on the “cool wedding things I can’t afford” when I blog bridal-ly again.
A writer (of any kind) who inspires me: Dodie Smith— combines loveliness and melancholy and nonsense and dogs and castles. Roald Dahl–just a little bit dark and utterly fantastic.
A YouTube channel I love: um yeah, I rarely pay attention to channels, but I guess I would say MEG CABOT’s!!!
A favorite quote:
“There was light everywhere and there was darkness everywhere, too.” -from “Devil in a Blue Dress” by Walter Mosley
So I wrote this post in like 15 minutes…and then I spent an hour trying to find some sort of related images to spice it up. Not gonna happen. will add extra spice tomorrow yum yum eastery spice!
