Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is every bit as charming in person as she would seem to be if you were reading her blog and imagined her in person. Really. She spoke of everything we’ve all read about, and everything had whole new meaning hearing it in her canadian accent, also even more charming in person then in the podcast. I love the “eh” she sneeks in at the end of “you know what I’m talking about” sentences. I don’t how many, if anyone picks up on that. I’m accustomed at this point to listening for sound variations in accents. Ever since moving to Pittsburgh, where the native accent is kind of like a drunken slur.
She signed my book! I can’t wait to read it cover to cover. She inscribed “For Julia- Queen of sock yarn- mistress of the dye pot.” I love her. She’s great. Stephanie, next time I come to Toronto- coffee’s on me!
More tomorrow- with the few pictures I managed to take with my point and shoot digital- my digital slr pro camera is in the hospital. Send it good thoughts.
What a great inscription!
Oh, fun!! I’m really looking forward to your pictures. And you maybe need to take a picture of the inscription, for those of us far, far away from the tour route…
That is so cute! What did you wear? Something Vesper I hope. My little bro is spending the summer in Pittsburgh and I’ve been trying to think of whether he’d think it was weird if I went down, ostensibly to visit him.
Good luck to the SLR!
Glad you had a fun night!
Sounds like you had tons of fun! : D
I love it when people from Southwest PA say behind. It It sounds like behint *snicker*
That was a sweet description of her. I wish she’d head on over to Colorado. Sigh…
