AB and me!

Monday night I had the opportunity to meet Alton Brown, the host/creator/star of Good Eats on Food Network. Not a frequent viewer? Well, you should be. I’ll watch Alton even if he is working with coconut. Blech! But, he presents food in such an entertaining and informative way, that you just can’t help but expand your food knowledge. I had to work Monday at Apple… good news because it meant that I was close, but bad news because I couldn’t be there to stand in line for the book signing. My friend Minrod Mier to the rescue! He was in line and willing to get my book signed for me. At 9:15, I hadn’t seen him at the store with my book yet, so I went to investigate… As luck would have it, he was just about to the magic point in the line. So, I hopped back in, met AB, took some pictures of Minrod and his daughter Miranda, and he returned the favor – see above. I mentioned to AB that I was supposed to be working (thanks for the extra break time, Tom!) and I heard that he had been in the store earlier in the day. AB asked if I wanted him to sign my work shirt, so I took him up on it! He also shared that he would have bought a computer, but as he said, “your sales tax is too damn high.” I couldn’t agree more!
