Oh, Happy Day (II) and a Giveaway

You may remember that last week I gushed a teensy bit about having the opportunity to meet one of my favorite humor writers at a local reading/book signing event. Well, tonight was the night, and it was one of the best events of this type I’ve ever attended!

Besides being a brilliant writer, Laurie Notaro is a charming, vibrant, and completely captivating woman who is as entertaining in person as she is in print. She’s warm and open to questions (so much so that she’s not above offering bribes for them) and seemed genuinely interested in the discussions. I was so at ease that I asked several questions, and I never talk at these things.

Plus, you gotta love a woman who brings chocolate Twizzlers to share. (I didn’t even know Twizzlers were available in chocolate, which was probably a good thing. Deee-lish!)

And in that same sharing spirit, I offer you….no, not the Twizzlers, for goodness sake! This is better than chocolate! It’s the opportunity to have your own autographed copy of Laurie Notaro’s The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death. Sadly, there is only one copy available, so we’ll go the tried-and-true random drawing route. If you would like your name in the hat, all you have to do is leave a comment saying so! I’ll leave it open until Sunday (07/27/08) 6 a.m. (US Central Time) to allow the weekend readers a chance to catch up.

Oooh, my very first giveaway! I’m so excited! LOL
