12:14pm: They aren't here yet. I think they are in the SUV idling outside the store.
12:16pm The girls next to me are skipping class for this.
12:26pm: I think they're here. The paps are going crazy up there.
12:30pm: They don't want their pictures taken together. It looks like Ashley is standing to the side while Mary Kate gets attacked by the paparazzi.
12:32pm: Line is moving.
12:36pm: New rule: You have to take your coat off before you get on stage. Are they worried about PETA?
12:41pm: Turns out the Olsens weren't actually here before—the paparazzi were taking pictures of the empty stage. They just walked in with a little entourage and everyone went crazy. The paparazzi are shouting "Mary-Kate!" and "Ashley!" and people are freaking out. Also, they're playing really loud rock and roll, adding to the chaos. You'd be surprised how much of the crowd is middle-aged. No clear sign of PETA yet, but I did spot one guy who looks freegan.
12:53pm: Signing has begin. Paparazzi had to leave.
1:04pm: Girl behind me: "I'm an Ashley girl, but I like the Mary Kate cover!" Small wail. By the way, that loud soundtrack is all classic rock—they're now playing "Simple Kind of Man."
