So, as I am typing this, I am recovering from a hangover. A Facebook Hangover. What’s that you may ask? It is the result of taking part in a ‘party’ on FB, waking up the next morning, and finding yourself exhausted and laughing for no reason on occasion.
For those who are not aware, FB Parties are starting to become popular. It’s pretty much an event set up on FB, and when the scheduled time arrives, everyone starts posting to the event page.
Last Night was the Dawn’s Early Light FB Party. DEL is the third book in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris (Those books are OSM [awesome], so you should check them out). There were a total of 130 expected guests, and the party went on for three hours. Felt like three minutes, to be honest.
All of the guests on there were the best people ever to spend my depressing Wednesday with. I’ve had a rough semester, with planning difficult events at school, to bad grades, family issues, and writing difficulties. After those three, laugh-filled, have-to-catch-your-breath, fun hours, I felt relaxed, and happier than I’d felt in a while. The topics ranged from the Ministry itself (Such as dream casting should the series become movies), to guest authors, to somehow talking about being loopy on stuff and having an Ministry of Peculiar Pajamas party at Balticon (I’ve heard that’s a fun event, but it’s looking like I’ll have to wait another year to experience it).
The night was so much fun, and I was very grateful I was invited. While I may still be loopy from my Hangover from the party (induced by laughter, exhaustion, and raspberry lemonade), it was an event that I would have been very upset had I missed out. I thank all of the guests for making that party a night to remember.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to eat something other than candy.
