iPhone Foto Friday

Today's iPhone Foto Friday is a little different. I'm going to start with some background... as some of you know in college I worked as an event planner on campus. There were two events that I really wanted to put on before I graduated but they didn't work out, the first: a Q&A Session with one of The Girl's Next Door, and the second: a lecture with Frank Warren of Post Secret.

Well my friends, I am so proud and happy to say that one of my favorite co-workers has continued on with my dream, and is bringing Frank Warren to SSU! So exciting! Congrats Angelina!

In preparation for the event I headed over to Border's yesterday to pick up a copy of his latest book to have him sign! :)

Post Secret: Confessions on Life, Death, and God
Being the OCD person I am, I was examining every copy to find the one with the least amount of dents or bent pages, and as I was flipping through one I noticed something hanging out of the edge of the book, and I swear all of a sudden I realized what it was and I felt like I had seen a ghost!

Someone had tucked away their own secret written on a napkin in a copy of one of the books...
It was so weird standing there reading their cry for help and knowing I could do nothing. I mean who knows, it could have been some stupid kids pulling a prank by putting it in the book, but ya never know. I just stood there for a minute feeling really weird and sad. Needless to say I left the note in the book and chose another copy!

If you haven't heard about the Post Secret project you should check it out, it is really neat. I like reading all of the secrets - good, bad, and weird.

Anyways, I can't wait to hear Frank speak on Saturday and have him sign my book! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I love post secret. It's amazing. I'm so so so jealous you found that secret!

Chocolate Lover said...

I have to check this out. I know nothing about it. That note is so sad. I wonder where the person was around to see if people would read their secret

Steph said...

Wow that's kind of creepy. Thanks for your input on my situation. I'm kind of a scaredy cat too.

Holy Weirdness!!!

Kelly and Sara said...

That's so sad that someone feels that way and there is no way to help! I would have such a hard time with that too!

Hope you have a great weekend :)

Selma said...

Holy crap...this is spooky! Then again, this creepy stuff fascinates me. I would have bought it with the message...I think. Ok, not sure. But girl, you did find that secret I guess. ;) No?! Oh well.

Have a fantasic Friday and an even better weekend.

Lil' Woman said...

That is creepy...hopefully the person who left it there found the help they needed

Crazy Shenanigans said...

That's so sad and creepy all at the same time. I do lost the Post Secrets though.

Maryellen said...

That is pretty crazy. That's so cool that your dream event is coming true. I also think having one of the Girls Next Door would have been fun. You think of cool events!

Jules said...

The Postsecret books are awesome and that is really great that you’re going to meet the author. Kudos to your friend for planning that event.

As for the napkin, that is really creepy and I would have put that copy back too.

So glad you saw the award on my blog…you deserve it!

I hope you’re having a good weekend!
