Hurray!

Rings!

I bought some rings to make chain maille. I have a bunch of weave instructions (assuming I didn't lose them) and I'm excited to try. I bought mostly Aluminum rings on the theory that if I get decent at it, I can upgrade my metals, but in the mean time, practice on the cheaper stuff. All in mostly largish sizes to get me used to playing with the rings and fun colours. Ooooh, I'm excited.

I can't resist

I've been trying to resist this for ages, but I can't. Especially since I've given up the HP Friday 5.

I said in August, when we talked about fan mail, that I planned on expanding that to live meetings when the time was right. Well, that time is now!

* Have you ever met one of your favorite authors? Gotten their autograph?
Yes, quite a few, including Lemony Snicket/Daniel Handler

* How about an author you felt only so-so about, but got their autograph anyway? Like, say, at a book-signing a friend dragged you to?
Yup. I went to Eoin Colfer as much because I had nothing to do than because I knew anything about him. I do love his stuff having read it, but when I went there, I knew only what I'd read about him in the promotional materials and the Boston Herald book review.

* How about stumbling across a book signing or reading and being so captivated, you bought the book?
I actually was so captivated I bought 3 of his books. The one he signed and two former books. Don't ask me his name. I'll check the books when I get home. 8-)
