And I know Craig will post his own photos later, but I had to copy over this one from one of the members on Harmony's board:
Now we know where Jack Bauer's man purse of whoop-ass went.
Here's the story of this photo. After the screening, the guys were mobbed by about half the audience down in front of the screen. They didn't seem to mind, and were accommodating to everyone wanting photos and handshakes. The staff, however, seemed anxious to get everyone out into the lobby. I was standing next to Simon when they announced (read:screamed) that we would have to leave the theatre.
Simon looked at me and said hello and I introduced myself. He said "Oh! You're the one I've been waiting to meet tonight!" I moderate on the peggster board, and Harmony had let him know I was there. So instead of just shaking my hand, taking a picture, and walking away, Simon started talking to me. When it was clear that the staff really didn't want us in there anymore, he walked up the stairs with me and out into the lobby. I thought that would be the end of it, but he kept talking and listening and I had about five minutes of Simon time. It was very cool, and people sort of gave us some room to talk when they saw that he was actively participating in the conversation.
I know he's heard it a thousand times, but he's a really lovely guy and well worth all the time and effort of the weekend's events.
