So about a month ago, I get the newsletter from Powell's Books (one of my fav bookstores), that says Mr. Bourdain is going to be there May 23....my birthday!! But I had already made plans to meet the fabulous Zelda....so there was no way I could go. Oy! Well, with nothing to lose, I emailed Powell's in hopes that they might know the rest of his book tour schedule...and no less than four people replied back! They were sooo helpful...and emailed me the dates he would be in California. Yay!
So last night I went to the book signing.....and I'm in love (oops! sorry Alan....I mean, I found him to be such a great speaker!) *wink*
He really was a great speaker....his sense of humor and spontaneous honesty are the things that attracted me to his show in the first place.....he has no shame!
But at a book signing....what do you say?? The room is full of pseudo~groupies, house wives, people who have no life but want their brush with fame, and people trying to make it in the business. The guy probably gets asked the same questions a hundred times a week!
So I decided to not say too much (I asked one question during the Q&A) and gave him my card (with this website on it) while he was signing my book. But I wish I had said more....or stuck around until the end.....he seemed like the kind of guy who wouldn't necessarily turn down the idea of going drinking with a couple of strangers. Hmmmm......
Well he is going to be at Huntington Beach tomorrow.
I am NOT a groupie!!!comments??? (3 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
