I had the pleasure last night of meeting James Patterson. Jim (or as I prefer to call him, Mr. Patterson) introduced me at a fundraising dinner where he was the headliner and I was the person who spoke after him.
I pulled out my handy dandy camera and filmed him introducing me, but the sound didn't turn out very good. You can hear him say "Susan Pfeffer" (pronouncing my name correctly, I'm delighted to report), but that's about the only thing you can really make out, so I'm not going to post the video here.
There are pictures though, in which neither of us looks too fabulous (he's a terrific speaker, by the way). I had planned on posting other pictures today, so I'll include one of them, and you can just imagine him saying, "Susan Pfeffer."
The other pictures will include one of Scooter sleeping, which he does very well, and my mother at the Orange County Arboretum (we went on Wednesday) and flowers at the Arboretum. I absolutely adore flowers, but I haven't mastered the art of taking good flower pictures. The one I'm going to post is the best one I ever took, and I magically plopped it onto my computer screen, so it greets me every time I turn the computer on.
So with further adieu, I'm off to post the pictures and fantasize about other famous people introducing me. Then I'll eat some cookies.
It's a good life.
