Evening summary.

lyricagent, who is wonderful, dropped me closer to the book signing than I'd expected to be, and I managed to get there in very good time.
docbrite reads well. I knew this already, but it was very different listening to her read something she's still damn enthused about.
There's a guy who I see at every damn signing I go to, who always winds up near the front of the line, and always with an arm's length of books. Good chripes, man. I know you aren't a Neal Stephenson, Poppy Z. Brite, and Jonathan Carroll fan. Quiddit already!
sherilyn is a very beautiful woman. And has a nice glib sense of things. cheekytubemouse is so very easy to get along with, and really sweet. Actually finally meeting these two lovely ladies was good enough reason to go out tonight.
tjcrowley was in a grand mood, and (as usual) great fun to hang around with.
docbrite is a very charming dinner companion as well- though I was down the other end of the table, with postmaudlin, being struck by the odd parallel of sitting on the floor in an Arabic restaurant after seeing someone read from their new book. Again.
postmaudlin deserves a break. If you are associated with the Break Disbursement Department, please do me a favor and check your records, 'cause girl's way friggin' overdue.
All in all a very pleasant evening, and I managed to not gush at docbrite about a novel that's years behind her- and really, is years behind me. Sure, it meant a lot at the time I read it, and I could probably say I owe my sanity to it in large part, but- that was a bleedin' decade ago.
I did still need to walk home and just let my brain settle again- all that old shit stirring a bit.

cheekytubemouse: you shouted something at me as you lot drove past on your way to the next stop, but I didn't quite hear what it was.
And I should've waved byebye.
