Shout Out

I want to give a shout out to Jonathan for a few David Sedaris related reasons.
1. Without him I wouldn't have know that David Sedaris was going to do a reading at Bookpeople next month and that vouchers for the new book were going on sale this morning.
2. I was bummed that vouchers were going on sale on the same Saturday that I had to train people all day starting at 8AM! Jonathan offered to pick up a voucher for me...problem solved!
3. Tobi also wanted to get a voucher but is out of town this weekend. Jonathan got her a voucher too!
Thanks Jonathan! You rock! I saw David Sedaris at Bookpeople when Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim came out. It was an incredible experience and gave me an even greater appreciation and love for Sedaris' work and the joy his stories have brought me. Seeing Sedaris live, hearing him read, and getting my second signed Sedaris book will be worth fighting traffic, hunting for a parking spot, and standing in line forever.

You are quite welcome. I am always happy to help people fuel their addictions, Especially when it's book related.

I think we need to start training for extensive line standing. We only have a month to train. I say someone learns to knit, someone get a laptop, and I'll supply the Uno.

Tobi and I both have laptops. Tobi and I both know how to knit AND I have Uno. We are set.

Excellent. I said this in the deleted post, but under my friends name. So I erased to avoid confusion.
