I'm such a little hypocrit.
I've mentioned on this blog a few times how crazy fangirls scare the hell out of me. I stand by that.
I'm a Tess Gerritsen fangirl.
There, I said it.
Here's how Wendy's day went:
Boyfriend took day off work. We decide to hit the mall. Boyfriend needs new underwear. Wendy decides it would be a good idea to go to Waldenbooks and spend some recently acquired gift certificates on the new Tess Gerritsen novel, Vanish. Laydown date was August 23. No problem.
Go to Waldens. No Vanish. Not anywhere. So I ask. Clerk says to me: "We don't have it in stock yet. It's listed as an August release, but it might not come out until the end of the month."
Wendy manages to not jump across the counter and strangle the clerk.
Chooses instead to console herself with a pizza for lunch. It was good.
We come back home. I'm starting to foam at the mouth. I think of the gift certificates burning a hole in my purse. Tell Boyfriend I'm going to Borders, which is around the corner.
He says, "OK, preseason football is on. Could you get me some cookies while you're out?"
I get to Borders. I'm perusing the new books section. Nothing. I'm getting frantic. So I take another look at the new books table. I look closer. Closer....
There it is!
3 measly copies and one of them is mine! All mine!
So guess what I'm reading right now?
And yes, The Boyfriend got his cookies.
