6:40 PM: Laura calls Lisa.
                Laura: I don't want to drive alone.
                Lisa: Me neither.
                Laura: I'm scared. 
                Lisa: Me too.
                Laura: There's a 95% chance that I don't recognize this person.
                Lisa: Make that 99%.
                Laura: Marriot parking lot in 20?
                Lisa: Done.

7:08 PM in Laura's car.
                Lisa: OMG, what if the mystery guest is wearing a scary mask?
                Laura: Let's just turn around and go home. I'm getting an ulcer.

7:27 PM in Laura's car.
                Lisa: How does my outfit look?
                Laura: Fine, I guess.
                Lisa: OMG, why did I make such a big deal about my outfit when I have no clothes?
                Laura: I don't know, but you totally freed me up to wear Uggs. No one will be looking at me.
                Lisa: I hate you.

7:34 PM approaching the restaurant.
               Laura: OMG, I think I'm going to puke.
               Lisa: You go in first.
               Laura: No! You go first! You're the oldest. It's like your job to be first.
               Lisa: I hate you.

7:35 PM entering the restaurant, table of author friends spotted.
               Laura: *awkward smile*
               Lisa: *nervous laughter*
               Lisa: *relieved laughter*

7:36 PM - 10:08 PM
Tons and tons of awesome book gossip and author blabbing and pizza and Diet Coke and V's famous cookies!!! It was the best night EVER and we have the pic to prove it.

The only question is...who will the next #mysteryguest be???? We're extending an official invitation to all of you. Next time it's ChelseaScott and Leah's turn to enjoy the hot seat!

So cool, ladies! And the dialog...Uggs, nice. ":-)

Laura Pauling said...

Nothing more fun that author/book talk over pizza!

Loretta Nyhan said...

So much fun!!!

Matthew MacNish said...

All you writers who live near other writers are so lucky. Super jealous over here.

And what're Uggs? Aren't those like the boots that rappers wear? Oh no, those are Lugz. Never mind.

K. M. Walton said...

That sounds like a really fun evening - minus the nerves & near puking parts.

Stina said...

Pizza and Diet Coke and I wasn't invited??? Oh, yeah, I need a passport, plane ticket, and strip search. Maybe next time. :)

Nicole Zoltack said...

I'm sure you had a blast! :)

Ha ha, that's awesome! Glad it was someone that cool, and not so much the scary-ski-mask version. ;) You ladies look beautiful. Lisa your outfit is just fabulous. Good work.

You all are way too cute, looking all authory and adorable. It's like a room full of awesome.

Except, okay, I sort of misread it at first and thought it was a murder mystery, and I got a little worried. Glad to see no one was offed.

Or were they???? Oh my word, were there originally 7 people there???

Elana Johnson said...

Ahhh! So fun! And dude, I'm still planning my epic trip to Cleveland. Get excited. Or not...

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
