And now, Lovelies, it’s time to celebrate CHESSIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First off, let’s just talk about Chessie’s amazing book, ALEXITHYMIA. And the thing is, I feel like I throw around words like “amazing,” “fantastic,” “love,” etc. A LOT when referring to my CPs.
Here’s the deal- they’re that good.
And Chessie’s book??
It’s MASTERFUL. I can still remember lying in bed late one night, trying to be quiet because my husband was asleep, but I HAD TO FINISH IT. So I’m there, eyes glued to my kindle- and then THIS THING HAPPENS. It’s this huge reveal, and it blew. my. mind. I kind of lost it. I threw the kindle across the bed, stared at it, and I think I even started rocking a little bit. I could not even believe what Chessie had done- I couldn’t believe she pulled it off, got it past me, made it all work….GAH. I started giggling out of the sheer insanity of it all.
And then, because I’m me, I immediately tweeted her to freak the fuh-reak out, and Chessie, being Chessie, enjoyed my mental torture IMMENSELY.
That feeling? That completely blown away feeling? That doesn’t happen to me often. I still can’t get over it. And I’m kind of sad that I can’t re-read the book and have that feeling again. Whenever someone reads it for the first time, I’m always like, “OH, I’m so JEALOUS OF YOU.” It’s like a drug. I needs it.
So what I’m saying is- I’m SUPER JEALOUS of all of you who are going to experience her book for the first time after it’s published. And when you do, come back here and we’ll all flip out together because….wow. I know I’m an overly enthusiastic person in general, but don’t at all let that fool you- this book is amazing. I’m lucky to be friends with her.
And now, my friends, let the GIF PARADE BEGIN. (And go check out Leigh Ann’s blog for MOAR GIFS)
So. There USED to be an awesomely fantastically fun gif parade here. And then people started getting sued for having photos on blogs (which, in some cases, I think is perfectly legit- you should never steal someone’s photos). Anyway- it’s made us all a little wary of posting pictures on our blogs. So I took it down.
I know. I’m sad too.
