powell’s block party with alyssa. after a 2.5 hour wait, got to see/speak to/touch chuck palahniuk (one of my favorite authors if you didn’t know).
it ended up being a fairly mixed experience. on one hand, i got to cross something off of my bucket list, but on the other, it ended up being supremely unsatisfying. i credit his novels with framing approximately 5% of my life philosophy, and ended up only being able to squeak out, “i like your books” as he scribbled cliches into new copies of books that i had purchased solely for the event.
if i ever have the chance, i’m going to throw those at his head. and then have him sign “you are not your fucking khakis” into my original copy of fight club.
