The TV Guide: Books & Buffy

Last night I attended author Christopher Rice's book reading and signing event at the West Hollywood Borders bookstore which is something that I had been hoping to do for ages now. I've been a big fan of Christopher's books since he first started publishing so I was very happy to receive the invite for last night's event. Because yesterday was also Christopher's 30th birthday, there was a bit of party atmosphere in the air (complete with balloons and cake). Here are a few pics from last night's reading:

Christopher read a portion of his new book Blind Fall which was released yesterday to about 50 people in the audience (BoiFromTroy was also in the hiz last night). He also told some great stories about the writing process and answered quite a few questions from the audience. I have started reading the book but could not finish it in time so I couldn't ask any questions ... but I did get to talk with Christopher for a quick minute last night. He graciously signed a book for David and a book for me and took the time to pose for a picture. He and I are working on setting a date to get together so that I can do a proper interview with him after he returns from his 19-city book tour (click HERE for dates) so I'm very much looking forward to speaking with him more personally about his writing career. If any of y'all have any questions you think I should ask, please send them along ... I may use a few in our interview.

I have to send out much love to Pink reader Jason who I met last night who is from San Francisco, CA. It was my extreme pleasure meeting you. I also have to give love to Jan from Borders for taking such good care of all of us last night.

After the reading/signing, I jetted over to Darion's place where he, Kirsten and I got together to watch and sing the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode Once More With Feeling ... here are a few pics:

In the first pic, we're doing jazz hands from the part in the song I've Got A Theory when Willow sings, I've got a theory/Some kid is dreaming/And we're all stuck inside his wacky Broadway nightmare while Tara does jazz hands next to her. OMG, we had so much fun ... D, K and I met at the Buffy musical screening here in LA last June and we've been talking about getting together to do this for some time now. I'm glad that we did cuz it was really fun.

Tonight I'm hanging out with Adriana and Jim ... I'm finally gonna get to see Jim and Derek's new house! So exciting. I hope y'all's week is going well thus far :)
