I went to Seattle...ALMOST.

Only a few people out there will fully appreciate the title (and you know who you are) - but I had planned for months to go up to Seattle on October 3rd to hear Neil Gaiman read from his newest release, The Graveyard Book. But now that I'm working at a school (which really means working in a petri dish) I've finally come down with a cold and decided that no one would appreciate me coughing through the entire reading.

So - instead - I headed over here to watch what I missed last night and now I feel like I went to a live reading from one of my favorite authors...ALMOST.

Oh, and just reading about your experience makes me feel like I went there, ALMOST! :) Sorry about the cold.

I can;t wait to read this. Loved the Anansi Boys. Sorry you couldn't go for real.

I now feel like I went to Seattle....Almost......

(except I HAVE been to Seattle in real life.......that doesn't negate this "almost visit" does it??
