Supernatural Summer

Oh, HI, internet. Guess what? Today I get her:

Steph, that is. Not Anna. But I love Steph more, because without her, there would be no Anna.

And I am very happy about this. And after I get her and we eat cookies and cupcakes and buy everything at Trader Joe's, we are going to the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators annual conference up in L.A. Will you be there? (Also, yes, I will report on everything I learn. And bring lots of nail polish for manicures. And have treats on me at any given time, so if you ARE there, you should try and sit by me during lectures/classes.)

So in lieu of a post today I probably ought to get cleaning; fresh cookies on the table can only get me out of so much. (I'm figuring fresh cookies = pass on cleaning my bedroom and the kids' rooms, which still leaves the family room, kitchen, and bathroom.) (Were I to make fresh cookies AND offer a surprise HBM*, that would be a different story. Alas, I am plum out of HBMs.)

If you want to read something by me, hop on over to HarperTeen's fun blog, Supernatural Summer, where I guest posted on summer crushes. (They also have lots of polls and fun extras from their books, as well as contests--very awesome for teens, if you happen to be one. And if you aren't, it may make you wish you were.)

Otherwise, please come help me clean.

*HBM = Hot British Male, as defined by Stephanie herself. She's rather a connoisseur of them.

Jessica said...

Yay for SCBWI! I'll be there! :-D

JC said...

That last part had me chuckling. Just in case you didn't know, there's a 'Wikipedia' article for your series now. Have fun at the conference.

Kiersten White said...

Dude, who made that wikipedia article? TOO AWESOME.

Cuppa Jolie said...

Looking forward to meeting you! And good to know about the snacks. My snack purchases thus far are so so sad (but my hubby did get me some Hot Tamales).

Kathryn said...

Adorable! You ladies are in LA? Welcome and enjoy your stay! :)

JC said...

"Dude, who made that wikipedia article? TOO AWESOME."

That would be me. Jim. I'm glad you liked it. :) Take care.

Kiersten White said...

Well, JC, thank you for researching and having awesome grammar. : )

Jolie--Hot Tamales? Really? I might not sit by you then.

(Just kidding. But seriously, please don't share.)

Raila--It's one of my all-time favorite books.

Jessica--Be sure and say hi!

Melissa said...

Have fun in SBCWI! I'm a little jealous of you, not only for going and having Steph... but also because you have fresh cookies. I want cookies.

Care to share?

Kiersten White said...

Melissa--Care to come help clean my apartment? You would get cookies for it...

Amanda J. said...

Umm, JEALOUS. Just a tad. Of you for getting Steph, of Steph for getting you and fresh cookies, and of you both for getting to go to SCBWI LA. But I still think you're made of win so it's all good. :P

Lucky, lucky, lucky!

Here I am, sitting in Oceanside....bored out of my mind while kids are in dance camp.....you should totally come up!

(Of course, you probably want Steph all to yourself......what with only seeing her once a year and all.)

So, when you drive up to LA, give a super loud shout out as you pass the 78. Maybe I'll hear you....

(Do I sound whiny enough.....?)

Have fun, girls....don't do anything I wouldn't do!
