Yesterday evening I went to see Stephen Fry

Yesterday evening I went to see Stephen Fry talking about his new book, 'The Ode Less Travelled' at the Institute of Education (sponsored by Blackwell's) in London. It was a marvellous evening, and at the end he was nice enough to sign books for the huge queue of fans. I was near the back of the queue, so I had to wait for ages, but when I introduced myself he remembered me and jumped up to shake my hand, which was a nice boost to my ego, as I'm sure you'd imagine. He also congratulated me on the podcast and told me he has subscribed. Wowee! I thanked him for being such an inspiration, and left on a bit of a cloud.
(I include a link to someone else's photograph of the signing.)
