Stephen King

I know some people wanted to see pics and hear about my night so here it is!

AWESOME!!!!

Everyone in the audience was freaking out when they were doing the intro - a list of all of his works, the covers on a big screen, everyone was cheering and clapping when their favourites came up! The audience was sold out so there were a LOT of people there.

Stephen king came out and read a section from his new book Under the Dome, and it was awesome. Its so cool being read the story by the story teller, hearing all of the voices he has given characters and his tone and inflection.

David cronenberg came out and interviewed Stephen King for the next hour, and it was hilarious. Lots of laughing, lots of great things were talked about, he mentioned he has been thinking about Danny Torrence a lot and basically explained the story - his motive was that if he talked about it long enough he wouldnt have to write it. He has also finished (or near finished) a screen play for Cell, he doesnt know if he will get a producer for it or not though.

It was such a fun evening. Unfortunately I was not allowed to take pictures and was warned about it when I tried, there were ushers in the aisles watching for it so rather than get kicked out I only managed to take this one.



Random: Stephen King wears velcro New Balance shoes. David Cronenberg kept staring at me, even my husband got that impression

The End.

    Hosting pictures, what do you mean?? What pictures can you see? I loaded that on using the PIP tool. I dont want random pictures of mine being available...

    He basically just said hes thinking of Danny and how the things that happened at the Overlook affected him, because things like that leaves scars, and what he is doing with his life now.

    The restaurant was really nice, we had a great time, the food was excellent too. My husband had many manhattans while we were there.

    Ah, ok, I get it.  I haven't looked at the PIP tool yet, I figured it was the same as on the Nest, clearly not.  Yay for pictures.

    What did you guys end up ordering for dinner?

    We got garlic shrimp and a cesar salad appetizer (SO GOOD), I got the pork robert (so good!!!) my husband got a ny steak (which came with these tiny fries, also so good!), 2 manhattans for him and a stella artois for me. We didnt have dessert because that honestly cost us 100$ and I still wanted to go shopping.

    That sound quite yummy.

    It was!! My only issue was that my brussel sprouts could have been cooked another couple of minutes, they were a little hard in the center but otherwise it was great!!

    We never go to toronto but we had a really great time, we will probably head up that way more often.

    Nah, you only need to go as far as Hamilton (at least in 4 days you'll only need to go that far....)
