I go to the counter to ask the gal there if she'd like me to sign them. She says sure, so I grab the stock and head back to the counter, and she says, "I know who you are, I have you friended on LJ." It was cute and funny. I, of course, misheard her LJ handle, so I can't shout it out here, but if you're reading, nice Powell's bookseller, say "hey" in comments. We talked for a minute about supporting local authors, then I signed and moved on.
That moment was fun and funny and cute and even a bit sweet. Made my afternoon, at any rate.
Now, off to San Francisco, calendula_witch, and matters literary with kenscholes tomorrow.
