The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Saturday, on Twitter, a very tantalizing offer was brought to my attention. And even though I had no idea of how I would actually pay for it if I did win, I placed a bid on Ebay for the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo New York Premiere tickets. You got to walk the Red Carpet and see the stars and see the movie. And given that Daniel Craig is my guy and all I placed a bid for $611.00.
Yes, $611.00. And that still doesn't account for travel to NY and a hotel and the outfit. How was I even going to do it? I don't know. But could I have ever forgiven myself for not at least trying?

I mean look at these schlumpy looking men in the picture. Daniel just looks so comfortable in his own skin . So sexy. *sigh Is it no wonder why I like to use him as a model for my heroes?

Of course I'd be mortified if he ever read half the stuff
I wrote about him on here. The false sense of anonymity the computer gives you is a seductive thing. But still when I lost out on the tickets (they eventually went for $1,025.00) it was almost a relief. There was no way I could have made it up to NY on what I make. But still I wonder how I would have handled it all.

I have a anxiety and all those flashbulbs popping in my face, not a good thing. Of course who am I? Nobody so maybe not so much lol. Then there's the throngs of people such as myself there to see the movie and the stars. That would have been much more difficult to handle. I'm claustraphobic and I might have missed out on getting an autograph from Daniel Craig. Going all that way and coming up empty handed would have sucked. This way I'm no worse off and still empty handed.

Maybe one day I'll get to meet him. Until then I just write my books and stay in my bubble. I'm running a contest. If you can name my hero and heroine from No Ordinary Love and name the movie that inspired it you will win a free copy of the movie Casino Royale. In the comment box be sure to leave your name and email so I can contact you.

I'm hoping you get the bid. I'm hoping you can find a way to get there too. Oh, and give Daniel a hug for me. :-)
