Back in the 804...

So the reading was amazing, there were a few grumbly points before and after and even Pud and I were grumbly with each other between the heat and the waiting...

For the two people on the planet who haven't heard about the reading here is a quick rundown:
- Whoopi Golderg comes out does some fun stand-up and talks a bit about the charities.
- Tim Robbins comes out and introduces Stephen King.
- King comes out and does a reading from "The Body" (the pie eating contest scene).
- Stanley Tucci introduces John Irving.
- Irving performs a reading from "A Prayer for Owen Meany".
- Kathy Bates introduced Rowling (Kathy is looking great these days).
- Rowling read from "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" the bit where Harry and Dumbldore go back to visit a young Tom Riddle.
- Q&A moderated by Soledad O'Brien with a question for Rowling from Salman Rushdie! (!)

A good synopsis can be found here and especially for Pud read about King's question to Rowling and her response that aside from Voldemort all of her characters are redeemable.

vanyavende sorry I missed you again... In the Fall when it is cooler I would love to come up for a couple of days just to get together.

Changes are underway over at monstericons check us out soon!

I'm still so jealous that you got to go!! I wish I had been able - it sounds fabulous!

Though I probably would have been a big dork and cried when SK or Rowling came out!

How are you feeling today?

I'm a bit sore, but resting and rehydrating.

And I so pysched with her comments about Draco the night before *Grins* I have a big huge theory on all of this that might turn into an essay. *squee*

I'm so sorry we weren't able to get together; I wasn't aware full day rehearsals started this week as opposed to next.

I miss you! *hugs, hugs* Seeing you in Fall for a couple of days would be great.

... I still think Voldie just needs a big hug.
