Alton Brown is back in the area, and was doing a book signing at a bookstore in Palo Alto; it was in the same mall as the signing we took Suzy too last summer. I managed to pull myself away from work at 6, pick up Dee, and get us there about 10 minutes before the start. There were a ton of people filling that bookstore; fortunately, just a little after 7pm, Alton came out and just talked for a while, then took questions. And then, around 8pm, the signing started.

I dipped out to grab food, since I hadn't eaten lunch yesterday. Alton mentioned his first job at McDonald's, and that's where I ended up. I promised Dee I wouldn't tell if asked.

We got up for our autograph just a little before 9 I think; I stopped watching the clock and just started playing backgammon on my phone for a while there. We were back home at 10, now with a full set of autographed Alton Brown books.

Lots of meetings at work today, and taking Dee to the airport tomorrow for her trip to Vegas. Sounds like Kris is going to be up here this weekend, so I might get to see him, and I have been invited to a party on Saturday night by my new SanJo friends.

I just need to survive today....
