I Came, I Saw, I Bid Successfully...

...woohoo!!!!

Thanks to all the wonderful booksellers that I met at last night's ABC silent auction. You folks know how to throw a fine shindig.

Oh it was fun, wasn't it? Did you see the almost ugly but fantastic last minute bidding frenzy over your pensive pigeon? There was some elbowing and a heated exchange. You should feel proud!

Hey Matt~
Whooohoo, congratulations on winning the David Small piece!!! Was so nice meeting you yesterday. Sorry Paul and I didn't say farewell before leaving last night--we looked, but you were nowhere to be found! Hope to see you again at one of the next events :)
Take care!

Hey, Sophie! I stayed a good distance from the pigeon at the last moment so I didn't know about that. I kind of wish I had seen the heated exchange. Wow. I hope no one was injured.

Hey, Lauren! I'm sure I left before you and Paul left and thus the fault of not saying farewell is entirely mine. My 17 minutes at the bar went very quickly. On the plus side, I now know it takes me approximately 6 minutes to run from that bar to Penn Station. I managed to catch my train and more importantly, not lose the David Small painting.

It was fantastic to finally meet both of you. I hope we have another chance to hang out soon.
