I saw another impressive "Story Time For Adults" last night: David Loftus read stories about the Jewish experience in honor of Rosh Hashanah, ranging from a funny one about a Jewish department store Santa to a wrenching one about Israeli soldiers preparing for battle. As a bonus, Loftus and I were also able to turn an audience member onto Harlan Ellison. Hope she likes his stuff.
I also got back some good pictures I took at Neil Gaiman's signing. I wasn't sure how well they'd turn out, as I was using an automatic-focus camera inside a dark church and the camera kept not taking pictures, but several turned out well. Some even came out funny.
It took a while to actually pay for them: I used the U-Scan to try and buy the one item, but it took the combined efforts of me and a cashier to make the system let me pay for it. "Remember," I reassured him during the rigamarole, "it's the machine that's dumb, not us." Now I know how to work it next time. The U-Scan won't defeat me again!
