Waxing poetic on beet greens

Toffee is now my favorite salad addition. That was delicious! And who would have thought of combining toffee with beet greens? A high five to the caterers.

Now that my blood sugar is up a little, I'll give you a little more of the details you are craving. From where I am sitting I can see Brandon Sanderson, who is a super nice guy. He is up for nomination for his hilarious book, Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians. He is one of the big names in fantasy, especially after the announcement recently that he will be finishing the final book of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Fans across the world probably include Brandon in their prayers now.

Sitting with Brandon is Shannon Hale. She is up for the award for her book, Book of A Thousand Days. I know that I'd like her, because someone asked for a picture and she put her napkin over her head like a head covering. I bet she'd make a good Mary in a live nativity. What a good sport! I loved her book, The Goose Girl.

I can see the back of James Dashner's head at that table, too. I'm afraid that everyone else must be guests that I don't know. Or they're just blocked by those at the table between us.

And the Whitney Gala guests did talk much and enjoy their dinner...

Great comments, Jaime. I know I'm not the only one out here following moment by moment. Wax poetic! Wax descriptive!
Thank you,
Thank you.
