That Time of Year . . .

It’s that time of year again.  You know, the time of year when I confuse an award-winning, best-selling author by making her hold my knitting while having her picture taken.  The Exile was released yesterday and the charming and talented Diana Gabaldon gave a talk at the Tattered Cover tonight.  MommaCodeMonkey came with NurseK and me this time.

Diana told entertaining stories about trying to explain to a heterosexual male illustrator exactly what Jamie’s butt looks like and read bits from book eight.

Then she signed books and very graciously held my sock for a picture.  As well as the sock of the knitter in line in front of me.  If we keep doing this to her, she’s going to start expecting it.

Please excuse the funny face I’m making.  There were some technical difficulties with the camera and I had to hold the smile for a bit.  Diana, on the other hand, looks great.  They must teach you how to hold a smile in author school, along with how to sign 400 autographs without your hand falling off.

PS: Just for the record, I’m not the only one who does this and Diana Gabaldon is definitely not the most unlikely celebrity to be asked to hold a sock.
