What the....(For book geeks)
« on: January 05, 2015, 05:44:24 PM »
So I got a call from a guy named Pat (http://www.patrickrothfuss.com/content/index.asp) today, telling me that I had won a (THE) ARC of Stardust (http://blog.patrickrothfuss.com/2014/12/a-familiar-story-about-a-well-loved-book/) and I'm geeking out so much that I'm vibrating.

Of course I donated it back. But I can't believe I talked to Pat.

What Fallow said! That's amazing! Congrats you're part of the tradition :D (Also very cool of you to donate it back to keep it going)

Oh my goodness! Can I... can I... touch you? Just to share in your aura?

Seriously, double congratulations on both winning the book and on speaking with Pat Rothfuss.

Of course, Pat will mention you in his blog, so we'll finally learn your real name. Unless it really is Gwyddyon.

It was pretty exciting and very unreal. Course I had no idea who he was chatting with until he got off the phone. I was too busy playing Dragon Age...

I've never won anything of serious value before in my life (from a contest of randomness) and so I can't help feeling like I've used up all of my luck from birth and until death on this one roll of the dice. But I'll take it.

Congratulations!

At least you didn't ALSO have to find a llama to kiss?

I voted for the goat, actually. But I didn't have to kiss either.

Huh.  I've been there.  Granted, there's not MUCH there, but to no one's surprise, I went there because of a brewery.

I've been through there a few times because it was perfectly situated between where I went to college and a friend's family cabin in the U.P.    ...most of my interaction has been with the state police as we got pulled over for speeding.
