If it’s Wednesday this must be Denver.

Hey Denver, let’s get together tonight.  Nothing sexual.  We’re just friends.  But whatever happens in book-signing line stays in the book-signing line, so no judgement.  Anyway, I’m at Tattered Cover at 7p.    Come.

fhart

Next stop?  Seattle!

  5. I bought a laminator. I know this doesn’t seem relevant, exactly, but you need to get one post haste. For your epic doodles. And for some reason I keep laminating stickers. Which seems counter productive. Or avant garde. Or at least safer than couch cushions.

  12. True fact– Denver has the highest percentage of nose pickers in the US. Dry air makes for dry nasal passages which leads to incessant nose picking. I used to notice it while waiting in traffic when my parents used to live in Denver. A friend who lived there told me the same thing about the nose picking at red lights, so obviously it’s true. Feel free to pick your nose with abandon while in the mile-high city. No one will probably even notice.

The plus side is, it just means you need to write your third book post haste – third times the charm, I will totally make it next time.

  23. Looking forward to meeting you tonight in Denver. My daughter and I bonded over the audio version of “Furiously Happy” while we commuted to her high school last month. She was grounded from driving b/c of stupid mistakes, but it ended up being a lucky opportunity to share, well, YOU, with her. She is coming with me tonight. She’ll be the tiny teenager with pink hair. She swears that you are the only person who really “gets” her. Thanks for being a great conduit for me and my little love to connect!

    I’m gonna see you in Seattle on Friday! I’m really quite excited. My hubby is coming too (he’s also a fan, though he’s slightly less manic than me) and I’m bringing a new friend that I met in the nervous hospital over Halloween weekend. We got to stay for the whole weekend plus a few days. I promise not to squeal or be alarming in any way. unless you squeal first, then all bets are off, because that’s the mating call for those of us in the batshittery club.

So parking may be an issue – the garage has been pretty packed all week. All that’s left right now is roof spots. There is a lot of street parking around though.

  47. Thank you, again, for visiting us in Denver and being wonderful and welcoming, gracious and delightful, for staying until whatever ungodly hour you stayed until, signing all the things and not stabbing anyone (namely me).
    So my sister. I mentioned above that yours would be her very first author event. She was enraptured the entire time. I thought she wasn’t enjoying herself because she was quiet, just watching you, not really laughing or responding. Turns out, she was in that state kids enter when they see their first movie or some other incredible thing that just blows their minds and they’re too overloaded to do anything more than watch. I guess that also describes a train wreck but that’s not what this was.
    Anyway.
    We were standing in the sign line afterward and I asked her, “Is there anything you want to ask Jenny or say to her? Last time I did this, I planned what I was going to say for days! Of course, I forgot the moment I was at the table and I just yelled things randomly, but it’s always good to prepare in advance, nonetheless.”
    She said, “I want to know if she cleans all her taxidermied animals. She said she has a maid service so do they clean the animals? Do they have to be specially trained? Does she dust them? Or vacuum them? But, like the dead alligator, that probably shouldn’t be vacuumed.” Then we discussed if it’s a good idea to gently wipe down dead ‘gators or just clean ’em up with leather cleaner.
    As we drew closer, she said, “I’m not going to say anything. I don’t want to sound weird.”
    I stared at her with squinchy eyes. “You don’t understand where we are, do you? No one sounds weird here. NO ONE. It’s practically impossible. We’d have to have a contest to outweird each other and no one could win. Did you not SEE last weeks awkwarding tweets?” But she didn’t because she’s not on Twitter.
    She didn’t ask anything. She got shy and overwhelmed.
    But she did talk to your editor (Amy?) who was also very nice and welcoming.
    I think that was a good start.

    The point here:
    Do you vacuum your dead animals and/or clean them with leather cleaner?

  52. Like several others, I’m not able to make it to any of your tour stops, but I am so enjoying the vicarious book tour experience online. I’ve bought three signed copies of your book so far (one for me, two as gifts) which is almost like going to a book-signing… except for the “hearing you talk” and “seeing you in person” and “meeting other fans” part. So, yeah, maybe not much like a book-signing at all.🙂 The past month has been really rough for me so Furiously Happy (along with your blog posts & all the comments from the tribe) have provided much-needed laughs. Thanks, Jenny!
