The premiere was cool. The movie was good (now I have to re-read the book), and the 3D was impressive (though the glasses were annoying).
But the best part was…I gave Neil Gaiman the teapot. I told him my story–that I’m a potter and that his blog inspires me–and I gave it to him. He had his assistant take a picture, and he hugged me. And he said he would use it. I hope he does. It’s a great teapot–one of my favorites. His surprise and appreciation of the gift seemed really genuine and I’m glad I gave it to him.
It was a good night.
