An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

The Bell Tolls

ROFLMAO

But the pic - sneaky Camel - is just the crowning moment really.

Okay....

So, Taer, Alyson, Camel (Ted?) and I are walking back to the elevators in the hotel debating what panels we'll be doing next. I said that I would rather attend the "Future of the Franchise" discussion than the BS signing because a) Harriet was going to the Future discussion, and b) I thought BS was kind of ...dorky. (In a mostly joky way, I love that he's a fanboy like the rest of us, and if he's reading this, I'm sorry!!!)

Anyways...at this stage, Taer and Alyson are on the elevator and I'm waiting to get on when Taer pipes up, out of NOWHERE: "Hi Harriet!"

FML

I recover, quite well, if I do say so myself, by quickly saying it was really Harriet that I'd love to have sign my book. Which backfires when she suggest that she'd be happy to do it right that second. Like the total FAIL that the moment was, I, of course, did not have the book with me to support my statement. So I demurred and prayed she hadn't heard my comment, which I had never intended to leave the 4 of us.

Not to be, alas.

I gave Alyson my copy of tGS to get signed at the signing, while I went to the Future discussion. Harriet left ours to go to the signing. Oh, ye gods. Ha ha, you spiteful gods.

So, Alyson hands me the book back with a royal smirk, and Taer's fit to burst with contained laughter. Yup. The book? On the inside cover it says, at the top:

"To Natalia, from one dork to another...."

To boot, when Brandon heard that he was signing the book of an absentee TLer, suggested that Alyson bring the book back at the need - to write a theory in it (!!!)

The bottom reads:

"Strange theory time... Mat and Fain are Brothers!! (not canon)"

AMAZING.

And on the first page of the letter, Harriet also kindly signed.

Pictoral evidence would be greatly appreciated!

What I love most about that story is 99.9% of the world would have no clue why it all is so funny. And I am giggling like crazy reading it.

Brandon signed my book: "For sbx - Peace favor your sword!"

Harriet though was a little bit too literal, which I found amusing. I had put a sticky note on there to dedicate it to Ryan and/or sbx, and well, she put exactly that.

I guess that's what I get for being a TL'er. =D

No, but with all the other misspellings he did, I'm not too surprised. I mean, that's what an editor is for, right?

LOL - he misspelled brothers (broters) and cannon (canon) in mine - but I think it adds to the charm.

I got Brandon to add more to my copy. The lighter pen is from JordanCon; the sharpie is from today:
