Lots of stuff has happened so I'll break it down and spread the news out, don't say I never treat you to anything.
On the 17th October (forever etched in my mind) I went to Brighton after work and saw my one true love - Caitlin Moran. This evening was arguably more exciting and romantic than the 18th which was mine and Lee's four year anniversary.
I went by myself as I had two tickets but no one I knew wanted to go/could get there. Sometimes you have to do these things for yourself though, being alone meant I could lap up every moment of her interview (by the cool Alexis Petridis), she was funny, hungover and swore frequently. What more could I want? After the talk, which lasted about an hour and contained anecdotes about celebrities and news of her future TV show and film of How to be a Woman I went and queued alone for an hour and a half to speak to her and get my book signed. This may well have been the best day of my life. Not even a joke. We had a conversation which went along these lines:
Me: 'Oh I'm dressed very formally for this'
CM: 'No! You look lovely, like you're going to rock the boardroom!'
Then I got a bit overwhelmed and told her about how I had come straight from London to Brighton, as I had forgotten we were getting a flat when I bought the tickets.
CM: 'Where were you before London?'
Me: 'Burgess Hill for a bit'
CM: 'Oh! I had friends who lived there, they didn't like it'
Me: 'Yea it wasn't for me either, a bit small'
Which resulted in this unique book signing:
Sorry to anyone in Burgess Hill, it was just a little bit too small, and a little bit too old.
