If it’s Friday this must be New Orleans.

Today is the second stop on my book tour for YOU ARE HERE: An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds and I am in New Orleans, home of ghosts and boobies and probably ghost boobies.

Come see me.  Bring your ghost boobies.

Come?  Please?

Tonight at 6 at Garden District Book Shop.

Next stop?  North Carolina!

  4. Yeah, New Orleans! Maybe someone will bring you a baby raccoon and mardi gras beads. Or maybe a stuffed alligator from Grandpaw. Or maybe the ghosts will bring you mardi gras beads (but maybe not a good idea to whip off your top for the tribe in the bookstore. There might be a quiet, introverted riot where everyone starts coloring).

    There is a coffee shop in New Orleans called the Cafe du Monde It is open 24 hours a day and serves the best coffee and beignets. If there is a heaven, and if I actually end up there (despite all the cursing at other drivers on the road), I hope that after death, I find myself sitting at a table at the Cafe du Monde, drinking coffee, eating beignets and watching the amazing wierdness that is New Orleans.

  10. I just want to say I pre-ordered a copy of your book, and then it arrived and I was so excited, and then two days later another copy of it arrived and I was both excited and really confused but apparently amazon knew I could use two copies so didn’t tell me when I ordered again and now things are awesome and I have a copy to give to a friend! Hooray!

  11. Damn! And I even wore my ghost boobies to work today because it’s casual Friday (and because I don’t have real boobies, so claiming to have some of the spectral variety is the only reasonable thing to do). As much as I’d love it if you came to Albuquerque, Jenny, I won’t ask you to do so because…well, because it’s Albuquerque and you know what troubles this place has caused for Bugs and Daffy. And Heisenberg.

  24. Regarding your reading in Raleigh NC, I just got news from Quail Ridge that I could not get into the reading or even the signing line. This is due to the fact that I have your book. My best friend from high school who lives in Florida turned me onto your blog and also sent me three of your books, including YOU ARE HERE An Owners Manual for Dangerous Minds. That book along with FURIOUSLY HAPPY and LET’S PRETEND THIS NEVER HAPPENED. Melinda turned me onto your Blog and took the time to get these to me in time for your appearance. As I’m sure you would say, this Sucks. They did tell me if I come and stand in line other people that are buying the book there will all be allowed to go in front of me and that they could not even guarantee that I would be able to see you or if you would even sign my books. Oh well as I will say, THAT REALLY SUCKS!!! Maybe another time, another day and another state. I was really looking forward to coming to your event.

  41. I was going to come see you in Raleigh tomorrow, but you are sold out! There are tickets to stand in line, still. But that book store is 45 minutes away and I loathe standing in line and I’d only have 30 seconds to nerd out in front of you. So, I decided to buy 5 copies of “You Are Here” (I already have and read my copy!) and will spend Saturday writing cards to the ladies I’m sending them to! So I’ll be with you in spirit–boobies and all! Thank you for another wonderful book! It’s simply perfection.

Some bookstores don’t realize that until it happens or they can only let in a certain number of people for fire reasons but if it does happen you can catch me out in the parking lot and I’ll sign your stuff. :).

  44. Similar to Janet (comment #25) —I pre-ordered your book from Amazon and by the time you posted your book tour here and I looked into it, Raleigh was already sold out. BUMMER. I wish the store would have moved it to a bigger venue or….SOMETHING. At least I was able to get a “signing only” ticket by buying a second book from the bookstore. Which, hey, I would have bought more books for friends anyway. I am taking you at your word (several posts ago) that you will sign “anything.” So please forgive me, people in line behind me, cause I am going to have two books to sign AND I want Jenny to sign the buttocks of Floyd the (gender-confused) Pink Flamingo with Multiple Personality Disorder. Floyd loves Jenny but he is just ape-shit crazy (biggest fan) of Beyonce the metal chicken.

    Love you Jenny—-can’t wait!!!

    I got my book today and wish I lived in Texas or one of the Touring Areas instead of Colorado. I evidently messed things up and didn’t get signed up for the book bag. It’s all part of the post concussion thing my brain has got going on along with trying to tell the hubby’s PCP where he can stuff his stuffy attitude over my dying hubby’s wish over having an occasional drink if hubby wants too! The pcp isn’t the one dying and if it makes the hubby happy, he can have one!!!! ❤ And staying calm when daughter has a systemic/anaphylactic reaction to the growth factor shot for two hours so she can keep getting chemo. Good Luck tonight, Jenny! {hugs}
