If you didn't know, Animaniacs is back on television.  On the Hub.  It pretty much makes my day, just like it used to do "back in the day."  My favorite feature in the cartoon is Good Idea-Bad Idea.  As Kristan and I were driving to Dayton for an author event with Rae Carson, Victoria Schwab, and Cinda Williams Chima at Books & Co., I kept thinking of some genius way of getting the authors to play Good Idea-Bad Idea with the audience.  Of course, genius comes slowly to this padawan, and the idea fell as flat as the Ohio countryside.   But since I had an oops this morning composing my normal twitter roundup, I thought perhaps you'd play along with me...

Good Idea:  use the Storify app on my iPad

Bad Idea:  save the story and then delete your twitter favorites because you trust the Storify app to be glitch-free and actually post your story.  Then realize you can't re-do or un-do and have to make-do.

Okay it's not very good.  You see why I couldn't bring it up at the signing.

l. Rae Carson, r. Victoria Schwab (sorry Cinda, we didn't get you in this shot)

But Kristan did capture some good one-liners to tweet.  In case you missed them:

It was a great discussion/ panel, and we thoroughly enjoy their books.  Wish you were there with us! The End.

I do so love Anamaniacs! (even though I know I spelled it wrong...) They were so goofy-crazy and that darned song always got stuck in my head. I'll have to check it out, refresh my memories.

Love some of Rae Carson's quotes! Sounds like you had a great time and love the Twitter round-up!

Great tweets posted and thanks for the introduction to the Animaniacs, who I knew of but never watched.

Glad you had a good time at the author event! I definitely have to read The Archived now to find that David Tennant doppelganger!

I saw that Animaniacs was on the other night and was thrilled! (They're the reason I know all my state capitals and the order of the presidents.)

@bookworm...so glad to have made the introduction. Now you must watch them all!!

@Sara...I just remembered! Rae signed a bookplate for you!!!! She's the best. Now you can put it in GOFAT or COE. (so good). We'll post it out to you soon.
