So.... I did go to the Ozzy autograph signing. Although it was really a book-signing, since they strictly enforced a no-memorbilia policy. My sister showed up with a purchased book and wristband for the line, so after work we went straight over to begin.... waiting.
To be completely honest, I would have left after an hour if not for the fact that one of my co-workers paid me to get him a signed copy. I love Ozzy, but I'm not a social person and waiting in line for HOURS with hundreds of people who have nothing better to do but strike up a conversation with the nearest warm body is close to my own personal hell.
By the time I made it up to Ozzy, his handlers were shoving books and humans through as fast as they could, which left no time for interaction. I didn't even get a glance up from Ozzy, let alone a handshake or greeting, but at that point I don't think either one of us was in any mood for conversation, so we did each other a favor.
So anyways, I got three books signed, two for my co-workers and one for Allen and I. I haven't gotten too far into the book, but it's actually pretty good. And despite the trauma, I'm glad I went.
but I'm never. doing that. again.
