This is the cutest picture of me and Sargon EVER taken. That is my kissy face. That is his "ew, WTF?!" face.
( Click for more pictures! As bad as you can possibly make it! )
Anyway, the signing was fun, even though I think we only sold about four books. Extra special thanks to bat_cheva, who took a lot of these pictures. There were a lot of people taking pictures, so more are sure to trickle in over the next few days.
In case you can't tell, signings are generally fun. Or, they can be. I've been to some bad ones, but that has as much to do with the bookstore as the people who come and buy books and talk to you, or don't. The people at Gardner's are great folks, though, and I got to hang out with friends. It's all good. Also, when I got home, I found a big ol' package full of swag from flameelf, who rocks, as they say, like a mighty rocking thing.
Included was a pirate headscarf, which is so cool I've been wearing it ever since, and only took it off to sleep. There will be more pictures later, but here's a teaser.
Now. If you haven't done so, please go take the poll. Results -- and the truth -- will be forthcoming on Monday evening.
* napoli (not to be confused with the proper noun, which indicates the Italian city)
Inflected Form(s): napolied
1. To brutalize and rape, sodomize as bad as you can possibly make it, a young, religious virgin woman who was saving herself for marriage.
2. To hella rape somebody.
Etymology: From State Senator Bill Napoli's (R-SD) description of an acceptable rape that would merit an exemption from South Dakota's abortion ban.
Example of usage: "Did you hear? Laura's dad totally napolied her, but according to Utah law, she still has to obtain his permission before getting an abortion."
