Now Playing Tracks

  • I was lucky enough to attend the LA signing at the Grove this year, so this is how my 2nd meeting with Chris went. I'm so glad I got a few minutes to really talk to him and watch him and enjoy him while he was signing all my books.

  • Chris:

    Hi!

  • Me:

    Hi!

  • Chris:

    How are you?

  • Me:

    I'm good and you?

  • Chris:

    I'm good, thanks!

  • Me:

    So I brought you something from my country *hands bag*

  • Chris:

    Oooh, where are you from?

  • Me:

    Switzerland

  • Chris:

    Ooooh! Is it chocolate?! *excited*

  • Me & Alla:

    *laughs*

  • Me:

    Well yes, I brought you chocolate because I know you like it, but there's also something else

  • Chris:

    *Finds chocolate box* Can i open it?

  • Me:

    Of Course!

  • Chris:

    *Opens box* Oooh, thank you so much!

  • Alla:

    *Opens second gift and Chris can't see*

  • Chris:

    What is it?

  • Alla:

    A Swiss Army knife! *shows him*

  • Chris:

    *excited* Oooh, I don't have one of those yet!

  • Me:

    *laughs* Well now you have one from Switzerland.

  • Chris:

    Awesome, thank you so much! *continues signing my books*

  • Chris:

    *points to tlos3* In this book, they're in a train at some point and pass through Switzerland, I think.

  • Me:

    Oh really?

  • Chris:

    Yeah, one of my best friend actually lives in Switzerland!

  • Me:

    Oh really? (yeah, apparently I repeat myself)

  • Chris:

    Yeah, I keep saying I should go see them.

  • Me:

    Oh yeah, I was going to tell you to come visit because we have amazing landscapes that you could use as inspiration *laughs*

  • Chris:

    Oh yeah, true, true!

  • Me:

    Which city is your friend from, do you know?

  • Chris:

    *thinks* Uuhh, Genovia..

  • Me:

    *Thinks he probably didn't pronounce that right*

  • Chris:

    No wait, wait, that's an imaginary city in the Princess's diary *laughs*

  • Me:

    Yeah *laughs too*

  • Chris:

    No huh, it's Geneva.

  • Me:

    Ooh, well that's the city I'm from *points to the knife* the designs on this are all Geneva monuments!

  • Chris:

    Ooh awesome! Well thank you so much and thanks for coming!

  • Me:

    You're welcome, thanks for doing this! *Shakes hand* Bye!
