[#] [2]
happy new year! sven & i celebrated rosh hoshana w/ jalex, mari & michelle, then dashed off to meet up w/ michaelmas, philip & teena at neil gaiman's reading. the church held almost 700 people but it was surprisingly cozy. sven & i got there after everyone had been let in so everything was civil & mellow, though after neil walked out there -was- the obligatory woman who yelled, "we love you, neil!" *sigh* but the woman in front of us had pink dreadlocks, three of which had metal nuts slipped on as if they were pink fuzzy bolts. :)

neil read from his new book promoting anansi boys and held a brief q&a session. philip, teena & michaelmas left immediately afterwards because they hadn't had dinner yet, but sven & i stuck around a while longer to watch neil at work, signing sandman statuettes and drawing canine figures in copies of "wolves in the walls." i had expected him to be a little frayed around the edges after signing so many books lately, but he was well-spoken and friendly and would shake hands or even hug people. they called people to the stage in batches of 50 based on the raffle ticket number you were given at the door; philip had an early one but gave me his before he left and before -we- left i gave it to michelle's boyfriend brian, who we just happened to spot in the crowd. sven wrote a brief note on the back of it: "shield & zoe say hi! -- from his brother, sven."



(yes, i'm a sucker for a boy w/ a british accent; i even had to include the really blurry photo. look! i think you can tell he's smiling!)

btw, did anyone else notice that pix has a new (additional) location? now there's classic pix and north pix! there'll be a grand opening saturday, alas, during the hp lovecraft festival....

I'm sorry I wasn't very sociable that night. Not only was I very tired and hungry, but I was a little miffed at the world as well. For the second time in two weeks, I'd gone to an author talk and ended up behind someone very large and was not able to see the author much at all, darn it. (The first was Terry Pratchett.) I got over it (I could still hear Neil, after all), but I was in a growly mood there for a while!

no worries, teena! and i thought -i- had it bad: the pink-haired girl in front of me was just saving a space for her bf who popped in at the very last second and sat in front of me. but i was well-fed and was lucky that michaelmas had saved us seats. :)
