Picked up Tammany and made our way to the Barnes & Noble in Carmel.
Got to B&N, played with the basket o' buttons, selected one (green, woo!), and purchased the four books by the great (we're not worthy) Stephanie Pearl-McPhee that I didn't own. I'm still not sure if I got scammed by the cashier dude (talked me into buying the B&N membership card...10% off stuff or something).
4:00ish (there was a lot of -ish going on)
Found our seats, and most will never believe that we were not the first people there...for a reading by a knitting humorist. Seriously.
^first pic of the night...Tammany begins to question my mental health, I think.
Tam and I get in line for book signing tickets. Again, not the first to arrive.
Back in our seats. The countdown begins anew.
^These are the lovely knitters who were "lucky" enough to sit near us. Ha. They were indeed lovely people who put up with my strange computer photo-taking. Love you guys, seriously.
Still awaiting the arrival of the Harlot. Lots more people have arrived. See?
^more of the wonderfully patient and obliging knitters
The drawing-of-the-names for door-prizes donated by Stitches & Scones. And.....I won one of them! Woo! Two balls of Panda Wool in Basil Curry (#443), a ruler, a Circular Solution port-a-pocket bag, and a coupon for 15% off a purchase at SnS. Woot!
^Ooh! Lookit! 15% off! Oh, the damage I could do...
^Hmm, what shall I make of this (free!) sock yarn?
^Bet you didn't know a bag could double as a hat like that. Ha.
Final pictures taken of the audience. I amused some and annoyed others, I imagine. But, I enjoyed myself, ha!
Indiana freaks Stephanie out as we (finally) execute a group wave (as seen at baseball games) in her honor. Stand-up routine follows. Huh.Larious. Seriously funny and clever lady.
Got to meet Stephanie, had wonderful conversation regarding Post-its, had all my new books signed, she worked my compy (same as hers) and got some pictures with and without the sock.
