1020. Jeff Fisher, one person I want to grow up to be, is having a book signing of his newest, Identity Crisis!, at St. Johns Booksellers. Regrettably, I won't be able to be there–non-desgining drudge job still owns me, alas–but I would highly recommend all y'all attending if you can do so. Any of you who does so, say "hi!" to him for me, neh?
Toot! Toot!*: Jeff Fisher book signing at St. Johns Booksellers - November 8th
