I do not get tongue-tied and stupid when I see a celebrity.
(Tongue-tied and stupid? Yes. But because of a celebrity? Never!)
I live in the L.A. area. My best friend is in the business. I’ve seen’ em around. Celebrities are often a) idiots; b) arrogant jackholes; or, c) quite boring. (And sometimes the perfect storm of all of those things at once.) (Sure, sure, there are some who are just lovely, but they’re few and far between…)
However! I am ready, willing and able (and will probably) be a blithering idiot when Jen Lancaster (my favorite author for the past 2 years) comes to town to do a book signing in May.
I just pulled this video from her website:
You should not read her books in public. I know from experience that it can be embarrassing to be sitting in a waiting room, braying like a donkey, and not being able to stop laughing or be willing to put the book down.
Read them in order:
- Bitter is the New Black
- Bright Lights, Big Ass
- Such A Pretty Fat
- Pretty In Plaid
Personally, I plan to bring all 4 to her book signing and stalk her until she signs all 4.
Oh dear, I’m already beginning to blither.
