Listening to Margaret Atwood speak, not once but twice, was thrilling! She's exactly as I imagined her- pint sized, well spoken and feisty! I was too chicken to ask a question but Matt prepared and asked one. She was gracious enough to take a picture with me! I tried to take pictures while she was speaking but I will spare you all from looking at those- they are all either blurry, grainy or there is a microphone blocking half her face.
This makes me think- jeez I really need to attempt to read "The Blind Assassin" again. It's her only book that I haven't loved. In fact I've tried to read it a few times but gave up after a few chapters. Ironic since it's her Booker Prize winning novel.
I'm working on my list of things and made great progress this morning. Now I'm waiting for a friend to come by so we can see if we can get into the art museum Refinery party. The advance tickets are sold out but there are some saved for sale at the door. DJs, dance performances and Matisse- how can you go wrong?
