People who know me well know that I rarely, if ever, fawn over anyone. Being directly or indirectly star-stricken basically does not happen to me. However, today, I felt it happening while I was there at the bookstore where the signing was. Fortunately, I didn't completely geek out but I was plenty giddy! I wasn't sure what to expect of him and I was very pleased to find out that Pratchett is a very funny, easy-going and rather humble man. He's totally not arrogant, did not appear at all full of himself and was genuinely surprised, pleased and appreciative that his new book sold out BEFORE the event even started. I ended up at the end of the line with Jay and he had been signing and speaking for over 3 hours at that point and he looked and sounded tired and thankful the line was almost done. At that point, I really wasn't expecting this to happen because of all that but even after such a busy signing, HE STILL LET ME TAKE A PICTURE WITH HIM!
That man is so cool. All is well in my world.
