I just met Derek,
And I'm so happy!!!!#
Yeah, I'm happy and after the week I've had I can safely say I deserve it.
So, I got to the WHSmith in Hanley at 9-ish and there was another girl who had been queuing since ten to eight because she thought people would have camped out. Sounds like fun... Seriously, it does. So we talked about the books and blah blah blah. By half nine we had been moved out of the shop and there were a few people. Ten o'clock arrived and the queue was now fifty people long. Then Derek's agent turned up and we were all like 'She looks official...' then they moved the sign and that did it, I was jumping up and down and squealing. Others were sitting down so we told them and it spread down the line like fire, with everyone jumping to their feet. We thought he'd come through the back of the shop so we were looking past the barrier (yes, they had to put a barrier in front of us) but what we least expected happened, Derek came through the shopping centre. He got to the main door and said 'hello' to me and this other girl (who shall remain anonymous as she isn't a Blogger) and I practically died!! I was just like O_O and then it dawned on me and - cue fan-girl mode - I was squealing again.
We were given little sticky notes to write our name on and stuff so I wrote 'I'm Lynxia Lost, from Blogland. Do you remember me?? :D <3 the books! *hugs*' and he did remember me!!!!! ^-^ I got a hug too and I got a picture with him which I will include in the blog post!! I also told him he had to mention Luce in a blog post because she's my sister who's awesome and didn't have the chance to meet him so it's the least I could do.
I'M SO HAPPY!!!!
