The time we met a horror master

Posted October 17, 2015 by Stacee in Signings | 2 Comments

We saw that John Carpenter was doing at signing at The Grove and we definitely wanted to go. We got married on Halloween {on purpose} and walked into our reception to the theme music from the movie Halloween.

We got up to the store and bought the graphic novel and then wandered around The Grove to kill time. We ended up getting snacks at the Cheesecake Factory.

We got back to the store just before 1pm, and found some other things to buy {damn you, 75% off table!} before settling into the line. We were told that John would personalize the book and sign one other thing. That meant Hubs was going to see if BN had the Halloween soundtrack.

John and Sandy King got to the event space right at 2pm. They took a few press photos and then settled into sign.

We were third in line and when we got up to the line, we handed the book to one of the BN employees. She then handed it to Sandy who signed it.

We got to John and we said hi. Hubs asked him what John thought of Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween.

J: Why does everyone ask me that?

Hubs: I was just curious what you thought. I liked it.

J: Well good for you.

Hubs: Okay. Well, next time I see Rob, I’ll tell him I hate it too and I’m going to go home and throw my DVD away.

J: *giggles*

He signed our book and commented on my name and how he liked the way it was spelled.  We thanked him for coming and headed out.

All in all, it was only about 10 minutes between the event starting and us leaving. The event was short and sweet and as always, the staff at The Grove was so friendly and amazing.
