I can not stop smiling.

This is largely to do with the fact that I am now officially on Summer Break, plus, I will be able to see Derek Landy again at the book signing in Bluewater this year. Or at least, that's what my Dad says right now.

But... it is mostly to do with that fact that the latter fact means that:

I (might) MEET OCTA!

IN REAL LIFE

AND WE'LL GET TO TALK ABOUT SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT AND NERFIGHTERIA AND HE'LL SEE HOW MUCH OF A WEIRDO I AM AND I WILL BE HONOURED TO EVEN BE IN HIS PRESENCE.

So yes. I am freaking out.

A little.

Depending on your definition of 'little'.

...Is it weird that I'm already planning my outfit? I never plan outfits, really. Especially not this early. But I want to look nice! Because I'm seeing Derek! And meeting Octa!

(Also, are there people in blogland that have met other people also from blogland before? Obviously there is, but I've never met someone online before, so: what's it like? I'm certain it's going to be amazing, and I'm not going to be able to stop giggling like an idiot, (Octa will probably be really articulate about everything and I'll be there like 'I- we - yeah - t-that's so cool!!!!!!!). Still, I'd love to hear people's stories!)

  1. AWESOME!
    That's so brilliant :D
    I hope you get to see him!
    I've so been wanting to be everybody in real life for AGES!
    That's why I'm already planning an enormous SP-gang get together once I'm rish and famous :D

    1. Haha, don't worry Kallie, I'll try not to fall for him :P

      *blushes* I'm not that adorable. But thank you - I'll try not to act too awkward on the day xD I'm sure I will! I can't wait!

  4. I'm only articulate on line I'm afraid. In real life I'm just this big silent ball of awkward and stuffs.

    But yeah I've met a few bloglanders before. Ven and Niall and Gen.
    It's really really awesome. ALSO I'M GONNA BE MEETING DEREK AHHHHH! It'll be so amazing and awesome!

    Lenka how will we recognize each other? Just wondering. I could make like a big banner saying OCTABOONA or something :P

    1. Oh, I'm sure you're lovely to talk to! Think of it this way - we've already got common interests right? Like Skulduggery and Nerdfighteria. So we won't have to go through the weirdness of figuring out what to talk about, because we already know some things that the other likes :)

      Derek is truly amazing. Also, make sure to tell him who you are on blogland. I told him, and he gets this huge smile on his face and shakes your hand and goes "pleasure to meet you!". It's the coolest experience ever.

      I've been thinking about that... The sign thing is a good idea! I don't know how we would be able to tell each other whether we're at the signing or not yet at the time though, since I don't think either of us wants to be searching for the other when they aren't actually there yet.
      I mean, I don't mind e-mailing you pictures of what I look like, since I don't think telling you "I have brown hair, brown eyes and I'll be wearing _____" is going to help a lot. Or we could even swap phone numbers (but I know not everyone is comfortable about that) so on the day we can text each other and say what store is near us and such? We'll have to figure out a game plan, but I'm totally fine with sticking to whatever you'd be happiest with!

    2. Well if you're cool about swapping phones numbers then I think that'd be the easiest way.

      Don't really want to give it to the whole internet though.

      Send me an email at octaboonaambrosius@gmail.com and I'll reply with my number.

      Also my brother Pyro (have you met him?) is probably going to come as well.

      I mean I think I'll be pretty recognizable. I did dye my hair purple after all :P Not sure what colour it'll be by September though.

    3. Okay! My email is lenkasweet@hotmail.co.uk, just so you don't reply to someone who decides to message you to get your number :P (sorry, I'm a daughter of a policeman. So I take weird precautions and such).

      I think I talked to Pyro before, but that was quite a while ago. That's awesome - meeting you both would be excellent!

      Oh wow, I've always wanted to dye my hair blue, but I've never gotten the courage to do it. I guess finding you will be easier than I thought - but I might end up wearing a fox hat if my order for it shows up in time, so that should make it easy for you too! :)

    4. You should wear it if you want to! And you can always take it with you and just put it on or take it off as you please :L

  5. Also your comment about the Colorado shootings was so thoughtful and sincere and you have a wonderful way with words.
    Made me tear up a little.

    1. Thanks. It's been on my mind a lot, and writing that out was a good way to get most of my thoughts out my head... Typing it all was definitely useful.
      Oh god, sorry, I didn't want to make anyone sad. I just wanted to write out how I feel about it, because I do think it's important to remind people you love them, and we seem to forget to say that a lot of the time, y'know?
