09:10 pm - Writers with Drinks, Burritos, and Fries
A few days ago, I discovered that Javier Grillo-Marxuach, creator of TV's The Middleman, was coming up here for Writers with Drinks, a monthly literary spoken-word variety show. Javi and I met three years ago at an 826michigan event, and he seemed to like me. He sent me a nice message when I found him on Facebook last year, and he was excited to see me at Comic-Con, even wanting a picture. So I figured I'd ask if he wanted to get together for burritos before the event, just for kicks. I assumed he would have more important people to see in his limited time here anyway.

But, in fact, he was totally game. He just had to see about plans with his potential future sister-in-law—I loved that he used that phrase, just as I refer to potential future wives—and he would give me a call. Potential future sisters-in-law surely trump dudes like me, so when I didn't get a call on Saturday, I figured he'd made other plans.

But, in fact, a few minutes before I was set to leave, he called. We'd meet at the Make-Out Room (the venue for the event) at 6:30. Cool!
