Happy Friday, everyone! I don't know about you but I've had a crazy week. I knew on Monday that I probably wouldn't be in the best mood since it is Nationals and I am NO where near Washington D.C. I did feel better knowing that my friends would update their Facebook statuses regularly and post pics. I did NOT know my four-year-old would decide to dunk my Blackberry in a mud puddle! I'm trying to dry it out because getting on my laptop a hundred times a day to find out the scoop is not easy (reference above spirited four-year-old who cannot be left unattended for more than thirty seconds!) I have found out that Tera Lynn Childs won two National Readers Choice Awards for Best First Book and Best YA for her debut, OH.MY.GODS. If you haven't read this book yet, I just feel sorry for you. It should be your life's mission to buy it and read it this weekend. Seriously.
And in case you've been in a cave, two of the Buzz Girls, Tina Ferraro and Tera Lynn Childs are up for a Rita in the YA category tomorrow night. The results will be on Twitter (which I don't do so I couldn't tell you how to find that tweet or twit or whatever) but they will also be available on www.rwanational.org . I will also post the winner here for those dying to know. And remember how you never thought you'd use fractions and all that seventh grade homework was a total waste of time? Not so. There are three YA authors up for the YA Rita. Two of them are Buzz Girls. That means that there is a 66 2/3 % chance that the winner will be a Buzz Girl. See, all that homework I did totally paid off!
So, what's the weirdest thing that happened to you this week?
