Default i'm so happy again

(i've got a bowling for soup song stuck in my head)
im so happy again
just to be stuck here again...

whatever.

i'm happy though, because one of my favorite authors, Christopher Paolini, is coming to backwater Connecticut!
He wrote the book Eragon, his first book, when he was fifteen. that's really cool, beacuse it's an inspiration for me to write my book.His next book is coming out the 23. No matter that he's only stopping in the town next to NYC, which, of course, had to be the farthest possible place from my house, and my mom can't drive becuse she hurt her back, but somehow, i'll contrive to get there.

weeee!

Nice! Think you get the chance to meet him and get your book(s) autographed?

If you have friends who also enjoy his books, maybe you could get a group together to go. Or at least someone willing to drive over there and take you along. Some people would like an autographed book, even though they've never read the author. You could cast broad hints about the value of autographed books on e-bay!

Car pool! Just get there! How cool I have always dream of meeting Anne because she is my favorite author and seems like a good person all around. But I doubt I ever will. Oh well I wil just keep reading her books. That will have to be good enough.

I'm definately going to get my books signed if i go. i even won a pre-release copy of the first chapter of his new book on a cd, read by the author.

so far the only person i've found who has actually read the books and will go with me is my little borther's best friend, but he loves the books just as much as i do.

Well, try him, and try your brother. You may like to promise your brother time with him, in exchange for going with you and his friend. Would that be fun, spending time with your brother?
