Here’s a bit of fun:
About a month ago I woke up on a friend’s couch after a big night out – we were having an afterparty for a roller derby bout we played in, and the place was serving this drink called a TVR, which I’d never heard of before. It’s Tequila Vodka Redbull, and it is pretty well guarunteed to make any event more energetic. Anyway I woke up in the wrong team uniform, with a business card down my top, what was (probably) cake dried in my hair, a phone number with the words “If lost please call” written across my chest, and this pin braided into my fringe. Apparently I bought it at an all night games parlour after losing badly at air hockey and declaring the need to buy the winner a trophy. Then, I’m told, I won it back while playing pool and hitting a passer-by in the head with the white ball. By accident, I mean.
Anyway, I love the book and am looking forward to the next one. Enjoy my trophy!
This creature sure looks happy, despite having more eyes than teeth!
PS There’s also a drawing of my hand on the back. I’m trying to learn how to draw but so far hands are the only thing I can manage.
In my experience, hands are very difficult to draw, so if you are good at them then you’ve already got a leg up!
Take it easy on the TVRs. I know someone who woke up knowing how she was going to die, and her life was never the same.
