Double booked myself last night and elected to see Andy Weir instead of watch my beloved Sounders destroy poor Houston to clinch their second straight Western Conference Championship trophy.

Approximately 600 people were here - by far the biggest signing I’ve attended at Third Place Books. I didn’t grab any pictures but they set up an airlock that you entered through and the stage had moon rocks complete with a window so you can watch the earth rise (which I learned technically doesn’t happen because the moon is locked to the earth.)

The first 30 minutes or so were a conversation between Andy and Neal Stephenson and then questions from the audience. We learned that Watney would be sorted into Hufflepuff and welders don’t return phone calls to authors wanting research.

The actual signing was very assembly line - no time to chat and no posed pictures.

Regardless I had a blast and while I regret missing the Sounders match, I watched the DVR recording when I got home.

I did not know he was in town! I wonder how he got here (he is infamous for have a working fear of flying). I'm so glad to hear it was a good show. I am nearing the end of Artemis. I'm trying to stretch it out so it will last longer. :)

A web forum that I read occasionally posted his tour schedule and I saw a Seattle date. I had originally thought that the Sounders match was the previous Tuesday so I bought tickets. Whoops. I made an error there.

He mentioned that he has a fear of flying and this tour has been hard on him, but he gets through it by taking lots of Valium (which he made sure we all knew he had a prescription for.)

I haven't started Artemis yet - I just don't seem to have the time like I used to for reading. :(

And, your peops did you proud in your absence. There was much loud joy after the game last night. It's always such fun to hear.

It was a great game! I watched the DVR version when I got home so I was up until almost 1 in the morning watching. I'm bummed I missed it, but it's hard to be in two places at once.
