I just received a package from one awesome friend, and it contains the Best.Christmas.Gift.So.Far! Quite possibly, it’s one of the best ever!
That’s a copy of Mockingjay sign-stamped by Suzanne Collins, and an actual signed bookplate.
*insert melting-into-a-puddle-on-the-floor emoticon here*
When Suzanne Collins went on her Mockingjay Book Tour, she somehow injured her writing hand, and couldn’t sign books. She had a stamp made instead, and used that to sign-stamp the books of the people who came to meet her during her signings.
Before I hyperventilate, let’s move on to other things.

It’s already been about a day since I’ve seen the first trailer for The Hobbit, and Concerning Hobbits is still playing in my head. I suspect it’s going to be the soundtrack of the weekend…or it’s going to be Gandalf’s voice rattling off the names of the dwarves: Dori, Nori, Ori, Balin, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and our leader Thorin Oakenshield.
We really need a good mnemonic for those names.
Or maybe a cheat sheet when we watch the movie. We’ll probably be playing eenie-meenie-minie-dwarf in the cinema!
And holy treasure-hoarding dragons, Gandalf! IMAX 3D!
p.s. There’s still about a week left to send in entries for my The Scorpio Races Giveaway! Do continue to spread the word about it. ;)
