Meeting Bill Clinton!!

Could it be any more exciting!  I just shook Bill Clinton's hand and got the legendary hand on the shoulder from him too.

Of course before this amazing event, I had to buy a wristband and then wait outside in the freezing cold in a huge lineup for two hours this afternoon.  Had I done a bit more planning, I would have brought a coat.  There were lots of women primping in the line, and at least a few expat Americans.

All of this in support of Clinton's new book, which of course was the whole point of the event.  As part of the purchase, I received a copy of the book and Bill signed it!  Unfortunately we weren't allowed to ask for a personalized inscription, which I guess would have been tough for him given that there were about 1,000 people in line and he shook hands with each person and then signed each book.

Security was pretty tight, there was private security, Toronto police, and secret service people all over the place.

Here's a photo of the inside of my book!

And the invite from Indigo:
