Where I stayed
Flew back into Newark. Helloooo New York. Wish I had the window seat to take a photo from the air, but oh well.
I met up with Marj when I arrived at Parsippany (another Vampire Diaries freak) and we checked the joint out.
We asked how much the buffet at the hotel restaurant was. A lost in translation thing happened (which I figured out later) where I thought they said it was $50 bucks but they actually said $15 bucks. I thought, bugger paying that and we went round the corner to Wendy’s. Where another lost in translation thing happened. I asked for some fries and the young fella said to me “Chocolate or Vanilla”. I was a little tired from being on planes all day and unfortunately my WTF didn’t stay in my head and it ended up being half yelled “What the f*ck?!” at the poor guy which made him perk up and listen properly after that. …Whoops. I ended up with another insomnia night and found myself outside having a cigarette at 1am trying to show some drunk dude how to use his iPhone to find a pub.. even though I’d never used an iPhone. But I was a lot better than him! He asked where I was from and I said “New Zealand”. And he said “Aw yup, I used to live in Europe”. I didn’t have the heart to break it to him, so I said “…Cool”. I really need to blog these dumb comments, don’t I?
Saturday morning and we lined up for other tickets we wanted to purchase. We had some young girls in front of us who had been there since 7am! And then a bunch of rude girls just pushed in right at 9pm claiming VIP status. And Creation let them. That wasn’t on the website buddy! We were kinda pissed off. Especially if the young girls had not of got what they wanted. Luckily they did.
Anyway, Saturday was Michael Trevino, Zach Roerig and Steven McQueen panels. Then autographs. Long day of waiting in lines etc. We wondered why it was taking so long but we figured out a certain person was talking too much.. not looking at anyone, Trevino! ;)
Sunday was a bit like, nothing happening and then all of sudden having to be in three places at once! Ian ended up being late for the gold panel with Paul, but Paul was hilarious without him anyway. So it didn’t matter too much. But when they did the second one where Ian was present, it was even funnier because Paul just gave him constant shit. Paul Wesley is hilarious!
Then it was off to a photo op and I met my fav Gillies! Whoop! And finally someone that talks normal, you know, like a New Zealander! :D He said “How are you” and I said “…mgglaw …mphblahumurphhhh”. It wasn’t that bad.. no actually, I think it possibly was. ;) Just a smidgen overwhelmed? And then I got squeezed a few times and I walked around with a permanent idiotic grin on my face for the rest of the day.
I actually walked straight into the autograph with Ian after that and Marj goes to him “She’s just been Gillied” and Ian high fived me and said “Awesome, Gillies rocks”. And I’m like whatever, it’s just Ian Somerhalder pffft. Kidding! Sorry Ian. ;)
Anyway, I better try and sum this post up. It’s getting long. Two more panels with Daniel Gillies and Torrey DeVitto. Daniel is of course super funny and Torrey is just lovely! Check out my pics!
I hit the airport again the next day bound for San Francisco! Nearly home!
While you are here perving at this page, check out my fav actor’s Trailers below. He made a movie. He'd love you to check it out. And it looks awesome! You can pre-order it and buy online below. And it’s only $5. It’s also got his gorgeous wifey in it!
Plus you can order a doco to go with it. Both for $8 bucks. It's a steal.
