ECF preempted by the Harlot

We saw the Harlot last night and she was wonderful!
IMG_1806See this crowd? This is only a small part of it. During the Harlot's presentation my friend Felicia's daughter Brooklyn got a little fussy so they got up to walk around a bit. She said that, as she walked around the store she saw people everywhere who had stopped what they were doing to listen. She really knows how to draw a crowd. Thankfully I got there early so we had decent seats.

IMG_1805With a crowd that large it was inevitable that I'd find someone I'd recognize and I did. I finally met Mama-E in person. I'm sure that there were a lot of other people there who I "knew" but I'm really not good about introducing myself unless I feel really comfortable. Maybe I'm just a bit shy in big groups. Mama-E was really cool though and I hope that I'll see her at other knitty events in the area.
The Harlot started speaking right on time at 7:30 and spoke for much longer than we expected. That was such a nice surprise. She was great! She's funny really entertaining. Everyone was laughing and nodding in agreement throughout. It was so worth going and I'm so glad that we were able to attend.
IMG_1817Look who got a little quality time with Stephanie. It's Brooklyn! (I think that the Harlot has a better picture of her. Watch for it.) We didn't initially plan to take her with us but then we realized that back to school night for DQ was the same night so My DH needed to go to that and couldn't watch the baby. Too bad for him because he was looking forward to playing with her. It was totally lucky for us that we did bring her because, as someone mentioned in the comments the other day, babies go first for the book signing. Woo Hoo! Three cheers for the littlest line jumper.

Then it was my turn to get my books signed and DQ and I posed for a pitcture with Stephanie and the sock. It was such a great night.


Have a great weekend everyone and, for anyone observing Yom Kippur I wish you an easy fast!

Sounds like a great time!

We're having a feast early this evening from "Olive Trees & Honey" and then DH is fasting for Yom Kippur. I haven't been around him all day when he's been fasting. It should be interesting.

Oh I'm so jealous! I couldn't make the drive up. Hopefully she'll be back for her next book!
