You had me at howdy @ 07:32 pm

One hour and seven minutes. That's four thousand and twenty seconds that I was early to hear Bruce Campbell read from his book, and maybe get his signature. As I walk in the door and I'm proceeding upstairs the come on the loud speaker and announce that they're sorry but the room is full and they will be allowing no more people in. Suck! I stuck around for a little while in the coffee room reading, hoping to see anilnaik, themabbi, or skeets but I didn't see anyone. So at 7:05 I walked out and got in my car. There were more people outside waiting that there were inside. Lots of goth people. Anyway, it was something to do. Now I'm home. I suppose I could have waited a couple of hours and had him sign something afterwards but I wasn't gonna wait their that long.

Yeah, I was warned to go early, so I did... my friend and I got to Powell's at 3:00, and we parked our butts in the Pearl Room at 5:15 or so once they had set up the chairs and podium. It was seriously crowded in there! Sawry you didn't get in :(

I knew it would be packed, but I figured an hour early would have been enough. How many people do you think were in there total?

I dunno dude, I couldn't even see them all... the line wrapped around a couple of the rows of books in the back, went out the door, down the stairs, etc. It was a damn lot of people.
