The word was out that Scott was on his way back to Australia for a series of book signings. The venue was the Sass & Bide store at GPO. Having missed out on events the last time he was here, I was determined to at least take a snap from a distance if nothing else. There was already a queue when I got there about 5.30, for a start time of 6pm. But it was manageable, so I got in place and waited for about an hour and a half.
I played Word Warp (my latest iphone app obsession) to while away the time, listening in on convos around me and taking a couple of calls. As expected, quite a number of peops took this as an opportunity for an impromptu fashion parade, giving everyone else the once over, and I do believe I got the odd side-eye ... but whatevs haters. I'm too old for that shizz. But I didn't really see anything too crazy! Pity.
The reason why it took so long was that Scott was being generous with his time. Everyone got t sit next to him while he signed their books. He also threw in some mild banter and staff were on hand to assist with taking a photo.
I'm never very good at these things .. and am always at a lost for words, so I asked him how his hand was holding up ... and he said fine as he's used to holding heavy camera equipment ... yes I know ... i am the ranconteur plus!!
Anyways, Thank you Scott ... it was an absolute pleasure and you have made my year!!
