And yes, my ARC is presently sitting in my lap, just waiting to be read. Oh, I'm just so happy to have it now! The mailman sure took his time with this baby. ~,~ It was almost torture waiting for it!... Oh, alright, I was exaggerating there. ^,~
Man, I wasn't even expecting it when I went out to get the mail... Well, I mean I was, since I was going out to get it, but I wasn't getting my hopes up too much. When I pulled the package out of our box and spotted James Dashner's name in the corner there... *Whooo!* I just squealed with delight before literally shooting like a bullet back into the house.
(Another detail: it was drizzling just a little bit at the time. It wasn't too much, but you could say that I rushed inside that quickly partly so there wouldn't be a chance of getting my precious copy wet, and partly because I was so excited to show the book off to my family!)
Wow, what a way to celebrate publishing my 100th blog post ever! So special! This is probably one of the best things to ever happen to me while using Blogger! Hey, can you believe how many exclamation marks I'm using in this entire post?! It's insane, it's crazy!!!
Okay, okay. I'll try to calm down now.
Let me just say that I'm really grateful to all the people out there who have supported me here, on my blog, right from the start. Or as close to the start as they could possibly get. I've formed lots of unique* friendships on Blogger that I couldn't possibly have made anywhere else. In fact, I've probably made more friends now than at any other point in my life! I hope these friendships will continue for a long time to come, and I hope that in the future I will be worthy enough to meet most of you in physical form someday.
You all know who you are. The order doesn't really matter. You're all really good friends to me anyways.
If you need me, I'll be in my room... with the door locked... reading and reading until my head flys off or my brain melts. Or until I fall asleep. (Which is probably the likliest thing that's bound to happen, I think. Don't you?)
(By the way, I'm hoping that most of you listed here will do me the honor of commenting here. Do not disappoint me. ^,~)
