Dave Eggers & French Toast & Temple Basketball!

So did you go? Did you go to the Free Library last night, to see author Dave Eggers and his Sundanese friend, Abraham?

If you didn’t go, then that’d be for the best- there was no room for anyone else. The place was packed. I got there a little after 6 and the downstairs auditorium was at capacity. The had rows of super comfortable medal folding chairs set up and were going to simulcast the talk downstairs to upstairs in the lobby- which was hot. Very hot. Dead sweaty hot.

A fella behind me was amazed- I didn’t realize that this guy (Eggers) was such a rock star, he said.

Before Eggers though, there was the CEO of Blue Cross/Blue Shield, one of the main supporters of One Book, One Philadelphia- he was met with some boos upstairs, but apparently enough clapping downstairs to make the nice man feel good about himself. Then a lady spoke, for minutes and minutes and minutes and was Eggers even here…

Good talk. He’ll be back in March, at the end of the campaign. Meanwhile his book, What is the What, is the featured title for the project and there will be a whole slew of Sudan-related events at the library during the event’s duration.

Side note:
You know was is amazing?

The french toast at Honey’s, 4th street in Northern Liberties…and not the kind with peaches…I get the regular, it’s amazing, it makes my day amazing and I can only imagine it makes my hopes and dreams that much more amazinger. Currently, it’s my favorite spot in Philly…sorry Qdoba…what???…kidding, but serious about Honey’s.
Super serious.
French serious…

Duke vs. Temple tonight at the Wachovia Center. Duke is like most years, really good. Temple is okay, but still better than the Sixers.
Ba-dum…
