Neal Stephenson signing

Same as the prior one- well not really. Much smaller crowd, much more civil than over at Cody's in Berkeley. I'm glad I went to the one near the house, also, because I could just traipse home merrily.
Surprise inspiration! Mr. Stephenson did indeed handwrite all of The Baroque Cycle with a fountain pen.

I've always gone 'oh, no, I shouldn't get a fountain pen, they suck when you're left-handed', but... if this fucker can write 2600 pages of fiction with a fountain pen left-handed, I can frigging learn to sign my damn name with one.

For those who have expressed curiosity, I have a ton of books sitting on my bedside table which represent all the reading I've done since the last 'books I started in _____' post I did; they will be catalogued and put on the shelves soon, if only so I'll have room for the new nightstand lamp I bought.
