Tonight, I am meeting the Big Name Blogger BOSSY. I am a little bit petrified. But I am going, damn it. I am sucking up the fear and anxiety and going to hang out with a bunch of people I don’t know who may badmouth me on the internet tomorrow. It’ll be great.
We are meeting at a place called Manuel’s Tavern. I have never been there. I think one of the main themes for the evening will be drinking. I almost never drink. I am not against people drinking. I am not a teetotaler or a prude or anything. But I grew up with an alcoholic father and several alcoholic uncles and I just have too many control issues to be a drinker. I have a tiny little not-noticable bit of control freak going on. I know none of you know that, because there is no way to tell from all shit I bitch about here on a regular basis 😉
In a little while, I am going to shower and go to the trouble of blow-drying my hair. It is at an awkward growing-out stage and looks bad every single day. But it looks a wee bit less bad if I use the hairdryer. I am not going to a huge amount of effort otherwise. I do not wear make-up. I feel uncomfortable in dress-up clothes. I might eat while I am there, so I need something elastic in the waist. And I finally got my delayed period yesterday, so I am bloated and cranky.
It will be great, right?
On another note, I have overbooked myself tomorrow 🙂 I am having a little tiny party for Nabisco’s 100 calorie snack packs. They mailed me a 8 boxes of snacks to share. They sent me some coupons and some magnetic photo frames with little words you can detach and stick to your fridge. That will be at 2pm. But I also signed up to do the read-a-thon this year. Which is also tomorrow. I swear I thought the read-a-thon was next weekend. Anyone remember that I did this last year? You read for 24 hours straight? I love that day! But, I will have to take a break for company in the middle of the day.
I will be posting about the read-a-thon all day tomorrow. I will be talking about what books I am reading and making updates throughout. I will post about BOSSY and the snack party on Sunday.
