I haz magic! I didn't attend the RWA but I do have RWA loot!

The moment I heard Pearl was going on a RWA adventure in New York I had a list of wants. Yes, I'm such a demanding friend! First of all I wanted her to have the fun, the fangurl moments and meet lots of fab people. But I was here in the Netherlands, and I wanted in on the great times. So I asked, if and when she could, that she'd tweet all the good stuff! So I could pretend to be there too. Of course I read up on many who twittered about the RWA and sometimes I had to whipe the drool from my keyboard!

When Pearl got home we scheduled a date where she gave me an intimate account on what went on at the RWA. She also got me some stuff, as in books. When she tweeted me at the RWA she had a signed copy of Kresley Cole's; Dreams Of A Dark Warrior, I had an utter fangurl moment! When she told me she had a signed copy of Nalini Singh's; Kiss Of Snow, I think I bruised a rib in the hug I gave her. Then she continued to blow me away with signed copies of Lady Of Light And Shadow, Tangled Threads and Coming Undone!! If I wasn't in heaven at that moment I also received some freebies *YAY* and I had this crazed glow in my eyes warning; my precious!!

So thank you, Pearl. Even amidst this utter kewl adventure you got to go on, even with the loss of 'the list', the excitement of the awesome peeps you got to meet, you thought of us at home. Of course now I have to find room on my shelves. Which I WILL find!!
