BlogHer in NYC and I’m giving away copies my book – Goodnight, Pond

by Leila on July 30, 2012

I’m insanely busy.

I feel like I say that a lot.

I also feel like I’ve been a crappy friend, neglectful blog owner and general whirlwind of insanity!

But, life is amazing… the kids are healthy and happy. We are enjoying the shit out of the summer. I also absolutely love where my life is right now.

Even if it’s been an intense amount of work and almost breakdowns. Genuine – almostlostmyshit – breakdowns.

Even ninjas can have them! However, I keep on ninja kicking and getting more done than I thought possible.

What I didn’t get done this year were shirts. I know many people wanted more Don’t Speak Whinese shirts and it just didn’t happen.

What I also have to give are copies of the book I wrote with James Hance when I broke my foot, ‘Goodnight, Pond’ – a parody book for the next hopeful companion.

If you don’t get the book right away then you aren’t obsessed with Doctor Who and I demand you figure that out! If you are a Doctor Who fan then this book is honestly amazing. James Hance and I have poured so much in to this self published book project and the response has been heartwarming.

Many bloggers have asked if I would be having anything going on with this book at the conference. So, I decided… lets do a little giveaway. The only thing is that you gotta meet up with me at BlogHer to get your copy of ‘Goodnight, Pond’ and take a picture. I like pictures! As part of the Aiming Low crew I will be at the Come As You Are party Saturday night and will be taking TONS of pictures there so you will have to stop by – even if you don’t win a copy. I like meeting people and I promise not to tackle you (okay, I can’t promise that)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I had new business cards and awesome stickers made by Lindsay Goldner of LLY Designs that I will be handing out at BlogHer this year. These are rad!!!! I also have some fun bottle opener keychains left over from the events this past year. Uh, I just like giving people ish they like and having an excuse to break the ice. Come up to me and say “Yo, ninja I want some stickers!” and all will be well :)

Shirts last year and books this year? You are all sorts of cool! Can’t wait to meet you (again) and exchange more than just “oh my gosh, you’re Leila at don’t speak whinese with those awesome shirts” in line while waiting to get my badge. Can’t wait to see you!

I definitely want one of the books!! My husband brought me back River’s sonic screwdriver from Comic Con so we’d have a complete set, so you know we love Doctor Who. :)

I will be at BlogHer but won’t be able to make it to the Aiming Low party because I’m part of the fashion show. :( But if I win I can find you some other time during the conference and get pictures!

OMG I’m going to BlogHer in all Doctor Who tees! And my mascot is going dressed as the 11th doctor! OMG so awesome!

Those stickers are AMAZING! Save me a couple or three.

I don’t even know where to begin. You were one of the first tweets I got to know, one of the first tweets I let know the real me… What’s it been a year and a half?! Your energy was what first drew me to you. It was your spirit, passion, love… LOVE for life, love for you kids, your beyond amazingness, your work ethic, creativity, view of the world and the truly beautiful person you are that keeps me hanging around holding up my grouppie “Don’t Speak Whinese” sign!!! I am so excited… I have been for a long time to watch you on this journey. I am also almost sick with jealousy over all you going to BlogHer :( but I can wait to see and hear all about it!!!!

While I am – lately – Team Roranicus, I have to say that I LUUUUUURRRRVE both Ponds for their sheer wit, skill, tenacity, loyalty, smarts, and overall wonderfulness. I’ve been a Whovian since I was first introduced to Four back when I was…a LOT younger. I also had the wonderful JOY to see DT (Ten) on stage in Stratford-upon-Avon four years ago, when he played the titular role of Hamlet opposite Patrick “OMGYOUREWONDERFUL” Stewart (as well as in “Loves Labours Lost”). That’s also when I got to visit the Doctor Who Experience. Incredible stuff. So, I definitely WOULD LOVE a copy of this book…and I would promise to share it with my sister. Or perhaps find a way to obtain a copy for her as well, since – without her – I may never have known to watch those episodes of Four…and I could’ve missed something BRILLIANT, BELLISSIMO…FISHFINGERSANDCUSTARD-levels of fantastic. :-)

I am so excited about this book and I’m so frustrated that broken vehicles and broken lawn mowers have stopped me from buying one. Can’t wait to see you in NYC!
