And waited some more. Maybe 1 ½ hours later I got my books in hand. Once I had my books I put my photos behind the page she was going to sign. I hoped she’d notice and sign them.
The event stated no photos or other memorabilia to be signed. I respect that and I even mostly believe that. Often I’ll leave an event and find out that the signing allowed other things to get signed or the celeb signed a few things as they made their way back to the car. So I hoped I might get lucky.
The line moved fairly fast but still it was another 45 minutes before I got to the top of the line. I walked up to the table and Giada gave me a huge smile. Heavy sigh. She is beautiful…
(OW! Just got smacked in the back of the head by the wife…ouch. That hurts.)
I told her Google has lots of photos. This one had caught my eye. She then said it came from the Food Network Year End party. I asked if it was a private photo, and she shook her head no, and then said she was just surprised to see it.
I left the table and was pretty excited. I got my books signed, I got a photo signed, and she smiled at me.
(OW!!! Stop that! I wasn’t drooling – really, I wasn’t!)
Nice when a plan comes together.
