seeing alton



it's alton!!!!!

wow.. what a crazy night! alton was supposed to be at the bookstore at 7pm.. so i left around 5:50 and got there around 6:30 ish almost.. the bookstore was already filled to its capacity.. which wasn't very large since it was a veryy small bookstore. so we had to line up outside and this proved to be very unpleasant as i thought it would be warm and left my coat in the car. i was #121 in line.. well. around 7 alton showed up! he talked for about 20 minutes inside the bookstore (yea.. had to miss that. i was almost in, too!! like 6th in line to be in the bookstore dang it..) so after that he started signing books and people left and we got circulated in, finally!! but that was only to buy the book.. then there were groups of 20 in line for signing. but we were just happy to be inside in the warmth! it was so cold outside. finally it was my turn to sign.. it was so cool to meet alton brown! i didn't really know what to say.. but he was very nice. after that, we left and headed towards the car... except it was nowhere to be found! apparently, we parked in front of someone's driveway without realizing it (it was dark..???) and they had it towed. SO!! we went back to the bookstore and called my mom for a ride...... but by this time it was around 9:30ish and there was basically no one left so my friend, my brother, and i went to talk to alton again. it was so weird and hard to believe that it was just us talking to alton.. we didn't talk much before my mom came.. but we talked about how it takes 3 days to make one episode and how his producing company doesn't make any money since it costs so much to shoot them. he didn't talk much, we could tell he was basically beat from the night. all in all, very fun. even though it was pretty crazy. and i got to see alton brown! and get a signed copy of "i'm just here for more food" yippeeee!!

I wish I could understand how doing a search for cooks recipes got me to seeing alton. Not that I mind, you understand Emily. It's just that I don't think it's exactly what I was looking for :0)

I've just found your blog about which espresso manchines are best whilst I was looking for more information to add to my blog about which espresso manchines are best. You've got a great blog going here. It's always good to have more information about which espresso manchines are best. I've just started my own blog about which espresso manchines are best if you would like to take a look.
Keep up the good work.

Hi Emily, oh dear, I'm getting square eyed here - must have been spending too much time reading blogs and reseller hosting package information. I'm supposed to be looking for reseller hosting package items but I find it all too easy just to click 'Next' and just see anything which is how I came to seeing alton. Some blogs I just skip through but I spent a while here. Ciao.

G'day Emily, what a great blog you have here, been entertained by the read. Just noticed that my brief time visiting blogs looking for dns hosting items has run into a couple of hours. Easily done when you get engrossed in what people write about. I should really use dns hosting as a search term but then I might miss places such as seeing alton. Besides which working all the time is boring.

Hi Emily, this is my last visit on the 'net for now - I'm tired. I found seeing alton by accident as I'm searching on cold fusion hosting but I got fed up with that and I've been roaming about just reading what takes my fancy. Good blog you have here, I enjoyed my visit. Have a great day and it's back to cold fusion hosting searches for me tomorrow.

Hello Emily, I've just been playing Serious Sam 2 before getting down to do some research into frontpage hosting; on the whole I'd rather continue playing. First place I came to was seeing alton so I've been having a good time reading your blog. There are some ideas that I could maybe incorporate into frontpage hosting to make it more useful. Thank you!

Hi,

I've put up a site related to frontpage web hosting its only been up a couple of days. and i'm still scouting around for information and articles that may be suitable for some of my frontpage web hosting pages. Your frontpage web hostingblog seems to be a good idea, I doubt if my frontpage web hosting site will become as popular... but I suppose that depends on me finding those frontpage web hosting articles.... A well, on with my journey - thanks for reading, hope to see you on my frontpage web hosting site.

Take care
Steward.

Aloha Emily, I'm in Hawaiian mood as I'm listening to Ki ho'alu music (If you've not heared this type of guitar music then you are in for a treat!) so I'm not really concentrating very hard but I came across seeing alton looking up gen on dns hosting. Anything to do with dns hosting I always look at, though I do have a tendency to wander about in blogs just reading generally.

Hello Emily, there's so much written about cold fusion hosting that I'm getting quite quite depressed how to sort it all out and decide what is good and what is not. Your seeing alton has been better than most and now perhaps I can make more use of cold fusion hosting.

Well I just got back from the gym and I am beat. I am currently doing some research on best hosting php web and stumbled across your blog. Which cracks me up really. The internet can certainly land you off base sometimes. Even though your blog is not completely related I think it is a cool blog. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very good points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at best hosting php web. If you have the energy swing by http://www.massinternetservices.com. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job!

Hi: I was looking for information on San Diego orthodontics and can upon your site. I'm working on a site about San Diego & Tijuana dentists and looking for any good facts that I might be able to incorporate into my site to really provide an in-depth information source. After reading your Blog, I found it interesting, but, it wasn't what I was looking for. Well I'm off again in search for some good info.
