Okay, so I stole Lori’s line from here. It used to be one of my favorite movies, after all. And if you look at the hair color in Lori’s pic, I’m obviously Billy Crystal, and I loved him in City Slickers, so I’m okay with that. Lori can be Meg Ryan. (Lord, it’s been a LOOOONG week.)
So, okay, it wasn’t the first time Lori and I had met. We met long, long ago (about 15 months to be exact) at the Lori Foster event in June. Where I told her she was blonder and skinnier than I thought she was going to be. This time she was less blonde but just as skinny. 😉
Not surprisingly, we talked about books. Lots of books. Oh, first I got us lost in the city. Yes, I had been to the restaurant before. Yes, I’d driven through that part of the city before. And yes, I still managed to get lost. Going home, too.
So, books. We gabbed (*snicker*) about how Anne was looking for more Scottish romances, and I said well of course she finally read Julie Garwood and LOVED it, and *gasp* Lori said she’d never read them. OMG. I told her she’d be reading them very soon, lol. She recommend an author to me that I can’t remember now, but I’ll make sure to check her out once I figure out who she was.
We talked about how Lauren Dane brought her over to the “dark side” (aka paranormal romances) and how we love her to pieces, and how I can’t wait for Kresley Cole’s new book to come out (OCTOBER 30!!!!), which Lori won’t read because although she’ll read Lauren’s paranormals, she’s still not a fan of the genre. But I heart Kresley Cole, so I can’t wait.
Let’s see. Oh, yes. The Red Sox beat the Angels of Anaheim at LA, or wait, the LA Anaheim Angels, or perhaps the LA Angels of Anaheim, 4-0. And the Yankees lost 12-3 tonight! Woot!!! On the way to the World Series…
So, last night was relaxing, fun, and really just good to see Lori who lives on the other side of the country, and who was excited to see the foliage that isn’t really there because it’s been too warm. But I’m still impressed that in ONE DAY Lori went beaching AND skiing. Can’t quite do that in New England!
And now it’s off to bed, as it’s been a VERY long week and I’m obviously rambling now. Sorry there was no TT today – perhaps next week. We’ll see. I’ll be offline this weekend as I’m driving my little sister and all her stuff down to her new apartment in VA. Sigh. 9.5 hours in a cargo van, here we go.
