It’s like the perfect two-second summary of everything you need to know about Nerdfighteria.
Like, next time someone asks you what it means to be a nerdfighter, just make/show them this picture of Hank making that face.

All of my TdN swag! I got a signed/hanklerfished TFIOS; a signed AAOK and WGWG; the two signed posters; two of Hank’s CDs, one hanklerfished; and John’s signature in my poetry notebook.
That signature was really the most meaningful thing to me out of that whole night. I had really, really wanted him to sign, just under “You shall love your crooked neighbor / with your crooked heart”, but I was worried that he couldn’t due to rules about him signing things that weren’t his books. We were some of the last people to get in line, and when I got up to the table and asked him about it, he said he’d sign it because we had been waiting so long. He was so sweet to us. Thanks, John! This really means a lot to me. DFTBA!
My friends made a little origami box, and we filled it with little notes during the wait for the signing line — and we put in drawings of fish with puns on John’s books. (The best was “An Abundance of Cuttlefish”. And “The Fault in Our Starfish”, of course. ^_^) And I gave Hank a Luigi doll to give to Katherine. They were so sweet, though we were some of the very last people, so they were a bit worn out.
Did you have fun? What kind of a time did you have? Wasn’t it amazing? :D

A present for Katherine! Hope I get to give it to her at the TdN tonight in Bethesda!
