The time it was about adoration

Seeing Marie Lu for Warcross was a sure thing and I forced Michelle to buy a ticket so she would come with me. I got down to the store earlier than normal and there was a local author meet and greet happening. I ended up going behind the counter and talking all things RuPaul’s Drag Race with a few of the MG employees while the event was finishing up. And then of course when Michelle showed up, there was some […]

The time it was about SDCC 2017

The time it was about SDCC 2017

I don’t think it’s a secret how much I love SDCC. I spend allllllll year waiting for it and things go in stages: pre-reg, open reg, press reg, and parking. Once all of those are completed, it’s only a few months that seem to take forever before the convention is actually here. Preview night We got downtown around 4pm, met up with Michelle and her husband, and carried on with our yearly preview night tradition: carne asada fries at Lolita’s. […]

The time I got a headstone

The time I got a headstone

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is always a sure thing. Seeing them at Mysterious Galaxy with Marie Lu is just a bonus. I was able to call in and get our numbers before hand, so we got to the store after 4pm and sort of settled in. Well, we ran around in the back room, where I lost my mind over this… …and got some chocolate mouse at the delicious bakery. Chairs were put out early because the store […]

The time we were not in the priority line

The time we were not in the priority line

When Marie Lu announced her tour dates for The Rose Society, I wasn’t going to be able to go to the dates she had listed. Then a San Diego event was listed and hooray!! Michelle, Keiko, and I met up for delicious foods and then headed over to the library. We took one car because the parking lot looked small and the additional parking lots had “walking trails” to get to them. I figured that was a horror movie waiting […]

The time it was the last event

The time it was the last event

I was able to get my greedy hands on an arc of The Young Elites at SDCC and I devoured and loved it. I was so so so excited to see that Marie Lu was going to be at MG. We got down to the store around 5 because we work in the area. It was the last day that they were going to be in the old space, so a lot of the shelves were empty. And it was […]

The time it was SDCC 2014

The time it was SDCC 2014

SDCC is always a given for us. 2014 was my 18th year going and it’s something I look forward to every year. We didn’t get preview night this year, but went down to the gaslamp quarter to hang out. We walked around a few art galleries,  got drunk ate at Barley Mash and met up with Colleen for even more drinks. Thursday Thursday was our first official day. We picked up our badges and headed straight to the Penguin booth […]

The time there was a signing rule

The time there was a signing rule

Marie Lu was always a sure thing. As soon as I got my work schedule taken care of, it was added to the calendar and I started hoarding books to take with me. We got up to MGRB early because it was raining. I spent some time raiding the back room [thank you, LeAnna] and catching up with Carlos, who we haven’t seen in a while. [And technically, he’s the one who let me in the super secret back room, […]
