I had fun on Saturday.
I had taken the day off work, the weather wasn't bad and I was about to meet Paul Cornell. The British writer of Captain Britain and MI13, Knight and Squire and a whole bunch of other stuff, was coming to St Albans very own comic dealership Chaos City for a signing.
Valhallahan and I geared up, transformed and rolled out, remembering to bring along our copies of Knight and Squire to be scribbled on by Mr Cornell's own marker pen.When we arrived the store was buzzing with life and there was great atmosphere, and eventually it was my turn to meet Paul Cornell. I must say, he is a bloody nice bloke and it was a real pleasure to chat with him about comics, beards and all sorts of other nonsense. He seemed to be genuinely enjoying himself talking us geeks and didn't drop his smile once no matter how many times he had to explain the plot of Knight and Squire issue 3.
When it was all over Valhallahan and I hung around for a bit, picking up our weekly stack and having a chat with Derek (Chaos City's kindly proprietor) and fellow geek Tony (of Never Iron Anyhting! fame). Then it was time for food and alchohol, of which we had much, and after which I awoke the next day with a pain in the gulliver.
As I said at the beginning, I had fun on Saturday.
