whereas I realize I am a creepy stalker

So, you know, I wore the anthropologie dress (Dress #2) to the Newbery Banquet. If you remember, it was quite a search to get that dress--I only got it after seeing fellow author Cindy Pon wearing it on her blog. As she was so kind as to let me buy it from her, I felt that the least I could do was give her and her book a little mention on my Newbery night post. So I went a searching on her blog again, to find a photo of her & her book. The first one I found was this:

Which made me scream!

Why?

Well, as I was searching for that Newbery dress I was doing other shopping too. I had my eye on Ebay relentlessly looking for that Anthropologie dress, but while there I picked up another dress. One that looked like:

w/MotherReader on Monday at ALA

Yes, it's the SAME dress!

I am unknowingly stalking Cindy Pon with some sort of unconscious Single White Female Married Asian Female syndrome. How do I get therapy for that?

And the worst of it? She looks better in the dress.

Hey, and what's worse, you make it even creepier with this "confession" to make it seem as if you are really normal and not totally obsessed!

You know, admitting it is the first step of of my 12 step program (2nd and 3rd steps include not shopping and not looking at eBay)...
