the dream is collapsing '11

Okay so I’m cheating and telling the story behind this picture before I upload or write out anything else about today:

  • so Michelle & I get back to the merch booth from Jared and Misha’s panel right?
  • Michelle starts eating a sandwich and I’m with a customer when Rose’s dad comes over and says really impatiently “what are you doing here? you should be in line!” and I was like “umm what?” and then he whips out 2 autograph tickets for Jared that he magically acquired
  • and oh my God I couldn’t even breathe, it was so embarrassing; I don’t think I would’ve freaked out as bad if it hadn’t completely come out of nowhere
  • so we scramble around trying to find something for him to sign and Michelle bought a picture of Sam & Dean and I decided to just use my train ticket from Friday when I went to Boston
  • so we’re waiting around in the ballroom for our turn and I said “y'know what would’ve been funny? if one of us gave a picture of Misha for Jared to sign” and Michelle was like “I was just thinking that!” so she went and traded her other picture for one of Cas
  • we get up to Jared and thank God I didn’t do anything embarrassing like blush or swoon so hard I pass out and I hand him my ticket and I said “yeah, I’m too cheap to buy a picture so you get a train ticket” and he goes “dude, that’s awesome but I don’t really have a good history with trains” (which, if you haven’t heard the story about the train in Europe, go google it) and he winked at me
  • and goddamn that man for springing something like that on me because I completely froze and was just like “oh my fucking God why are you so perfect” but I was over it in like .2 seconds and I was totally cool and not blushing at all and said laughed and walked away
  • ok so then Michelle gets up there right? she hands Jared the picture, he laughs, draws the eyepatch first because obviously that was his number one priority, then wrote “butt pirate” at the top and then almost like an afterthought signed his name
  • then he’s like “are you guys meeting Misha? you need to show him this” and we explained how we were given the tickets and we weren’t meeting Misha and he was like “no way dude, go tell them I told you you could meet him” and we were like “yeah ok because that’s gonna work” but he was so adamant about it and he was like “no really he’s right there go tell them Jared sent you” and I said “Jared, I’m pretty positive they’re not going to let us in by your word alone” so he turns to the people sitting next to him and he’s like “please can they go show him this?” and thank God in heaven they said yes
  • so then Jared yells “MISHA HEY MISHA” and Misha yelled back “WHAT?” and Jared says “YOU NEED TO SEE THIS PICTURE IT’S THE MOST ACCURATE PICTURE OF YOU EVER” and then we were ushered behind the stage to Misha and we came up behind him and I said “so we were instructed to show you this” and he looked at it, chuckled, looked up at both of us (which oh my fucking God when he’s looking right at you it’s like the most intense thing ever Jesus Christ) and then said “I hate him so much” and Michelle said something like “yeah but you’re my favorite so it’s okay” and he smiled and signed the picture for her and then at the last second, crossed out Jared’s signature
  • then when we were walking back out Jared was like “so?” and Michelle held up the picture and he laughed really hard

AND THAT IS THE STORY ABOUT HOW I MET JARED AND MISHA

Okay, I'll tell the cock sock story even though everyone's probably sick of it by now.

So it was during Jared’s panel and this older lady asked something like “what’s the weirdest thing you’ve had to wear for a role?” and Jared was like “well, there was this thing I had to wear for House of Wax when they put the wax all over me and um, since there’s children present I won’t say the name of it but it rhymes and it’s bleep sock” and everyone busted out laughing and the woman, God bless her, said “you mean they had one big enough?” and I swear to God the place erupted from everyone laughing so hard and Jared was laughing just as hard and actually got up and walked over to her applauding her on the way and hugged her and oh my God, it was the best thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life.

And actually, the woman came by the booth later and I was like “you are a fucking saint” and she was like “yeah well, when the opportunity presents it self, you take it.”

Also: can we just talk about how many times I ran into/saw Misha today?
  1. During Jared’s panel, the batteries on my camera died so I ran back to the booth to grab some more and on the way back, I see this guy and I’m like “oh he’s cute” but then I did a double take and I thought “holy fucking shit that’s Misha” and here’s the embarrassing bit: I stopped walking, pointed, said “holy shit”, realized how retarded I was being when Misha was like “um” and then I literally walked away as fast as possible
  2. The second time I saw him was when Michelle & I talked to him & got his autograph (see previous post)
  3. The third time was during Richard’s panel, I think. We were all in the vendors room at the booth and there were only like 2 other people other than the workers there and in walks Misha and I was like “oh wow ok there he is again” and he walked around and looked at everything and received the fake bologna fetus that I’m sure you’ve heard about and then he walked out
  4. Then Rose’s dad went to the bathroom and when he came back, he goes “I’m definitely violating the guy code right now but I just saw Misha in the bathroom.”
  5. Then we all saw him at least once more before we left and it was so fucking awesome I can’t even tell you.
  • At the con yesterday, I said I really loved the Sam poster that Creation was selling and Rose’s dad goes “I think I have some at the house actually” so this morning I woke up to a poster tube sitting on the table and this was chillin inside
  • then last night, Rose was like “oh! I got something for you at Comic Con” and she pulls out this
  • I’ve never been more spoiled in my life than I have in the past 2 days
A bullet list about today. (I promise, after this post I'll shut up.)
  • damn you, Walmart for taking away Rose tonight
  • Rose’s brother & I bonded over our love of Tolkien and played Lord of the Rings: The Third Age for 2 hours this afternoon
  • can we just talk about how awesome it is I can finally geek out with someone over LOTR?
  • because it’s pretty much the best thing ever
  • no actually, the best thing ever is the fact that I’m even here
  • today while eating lunch, Rose was like “dude, you’re here” and I said “oh my God, I am
  • SO SURREAL
  • also: I just checked my bank account to make sure I didn’t spend too much money today and I have a lot more than I expected WOOHOO
  • so tomorrow’s Supernatural Con and then Sarah & I are hanging out when I get back :D
