Book Signing

Today, I went to a book signing by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.

Ridley Pearson writes a bunch of suspense/thriller books like Killer View, Killer Summer Something Else. Dave used to write a weekly newspaper column where they forced him to do ridiculous things like join the US Synchronized Swimming Olympic Team for a day and write about it.

Recently, they've been writing a series of Peter Pan books which are pretty good, although I prefered their book Science Fair. That book was about some terrorists who wanted to take over the world (but ended up getting addicted to the Home Shopping Network instead).

The book signing started with them talking for about half an hour about the books and crazy things that happened to them, like the time they got locked up with Peter Pan in Disneyland for 15 minutes, or the time somebody brought a 20-foot snake to their book signing, wrapped the snake around the two of them, and then left. They were both really funny, and a good time was had by all.

Ridley wrote "Michael, enjoy the view!" in Killer View, which automatically earns him 20 awesomeness points.
