So that's all the excitement I got. How about you folks?

Went to meet Alton Brown last night. He was signing books at the local Books A Bajillion. It was quite a wait, but I got up there finally. He's actually quite thinner in person. I guess that's the camera adding 10 pounds! He was nice, though quick(there were 400+ people there) and posed for photos. Mine is above. I was tired by the time I got up there and I wasn't paying attention when he went in for the hug, so you see me there smiling but I'm actually gritting my teeth as he is firmly squishing my bad elbow/arm! I do have to say, he was very kind. So kind, in fact, that he stayed 3 hours past the closing of the bookstore so everyone who had come to meet him had their chance! It's nice when a celebrity is kind instead of being a jerk. Made my evening!
