Let’s all embrace our inner Geek and share what makes us geek out!
Geeking out is great fun. It is even more fun to geek out with some friends, and all be silly laughing messes together. True story. Let’s see, some of my most memorable geeking out moments include:
- Going to the Supernatural convention in Dallas and geeking out with hubby during the panels. And and and – the famous family photo – the one with me and my husband, and my giant pregnant belly, with Jensen and Jared. Yep, that family photo is hanging in my hallway. Near my other family photos. Because yes.
- Flying to Portland with Rose to geek out over Colleen Hoover’s release of Maybe Someday, and watching the concert live! That’s right, Griffin Peterson performed all the music during the release party.
- Comicpalooza, where I mostly followed around all the author panels and was quite book nerdy.
- Teen Book Con because books and YA and authors, and all the panels and ALL THE AUTHORS!
*SIGH* I miss going to events and geeking out.
If geeking were an Olympic event, I think I’d have a pretty good chance of making the team. Or I’d at least be at home watching!
My most recent geek moment was an author liking my tweet. Yes, it’s the little things in life. But that made me super happy!
I love when authors interact with readers, even on such a small scale. 😀
And I agree with Julie. Teen Book Con is great! Especially because it is like a reward to teens who read.
In addition to Julie’s and Rose’s trip to Portland, we also met Colleen Hoover and Griffin Peterson, in addition to many other authors, in Austin. That trip was my first experience at a massive book signing AND my first trip to Buc-Ees (a Texas icon if there ever was one). And despite all the lines, we had a great time. We bought way too many books. Rose felt up Griffin. We almost wrecked the car to stop for a giant squirrel on the way home. An overall great day!
How about you? Any geeky experiences you want to share?
