Right, so I managed to stay awake yesterday and actually get some sleep last night – time will only tell if I can get up for work in the morning.

So much happened this weekend, and I’m not going to go into it all because there are some things you can find at every other con report, and then there’s stuff that I’m gonna keep for myself. But I shall try and tell you some things, as well as showing you guys some of the better photos of the crap that I took :D

OK so Friday [ profile] abydosww and I went to Universal…wait, you don’t want to hear about that crap? Ah well, fine. Uhmmm first fangirlish moment was when Chad first arrived – me and some of my girls were sitting in the lobby and a load of people walked up to the reception thingy. I was listening to one of the girls talk, so I wasn’t really focussing on what I was looking at, or rather who, and I realised I was making eye contact with Chad Lindberg. Kinda surreal, ‘cause I was thinking hmmm that guy looks familiar, and he’s kinda hot, then I looked away and was like OMFG I WAS STARING AT CHAD! LOL weird.

OK, to the start of it all on Friday – the meet and greet. Everything was going over, so it wasn’t that long, which was a bit of a pisser, but we still got to see pretty much everyone. Jim was completely dumbfounded when he came out, as was Gabe; they were kinda O.o at everyone clapping and screaming at them. Dizzy – the host of the entire weekend and an all round great guy – introduced everyone and asked where everyone was from. He asked if anyone was there from the UK and no-one answered, so I thought fuck this and shouted out IRELAND as loud as I could. Which, ya know, meant that all the guests turned and looked my way and I was kinda shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Dizzy goes something like all right someone from the UK and I was like NOOOOOOOOO IRELAND!!!!!!!! He was all apologetic for that later LOL he’s such a sweetie. So he passes the mic around to all the guests and Jim’s the last to get it. He turns to us and says “Ireland eh? I didn’t recognise you without the pints of Guinness in your hands!!!” HAHAHAHAH awesome!

Here, have two fairly crappy photos of the meet&greet

I actually like how this one turned out. So there :P

Then? Ten Inch Hero and OMG I loved it…of course XD Funny and sweet and irreverent and just I want it. Jensen was HAWT as the pierced, mohawked, tattooed, kilted Priestly, but I didn’t like part of the end of his storyline. I’m not gonna say it, but those of you who’ve seen it will know, I’m sure. It annoyed me and I thought it negated the overall message of the film but whatever.

Ehhhh yeah so cocktail party. Bad choice of room. There were too many of us squashed in there, with the occasional table plonked in for good measure and no music or any kind of atmosphere. The guests just kinda arrived and were swallowed up by the crowd, some of them pinned in by fans who wouldn’t shut up. Actually, they were all kind of pinned in at some point. We had a great chat with Dizzy, all apologetic that he said Ireland was in the UK – we were like, it’s like calling you guys British, we both had wars of independence dude!! Ha, not saying UK is bad, just saying we aint it ;) He’s so lovely, kept us all together for the whole weekend, kept us going imho.

Anyways, it was getting later and later and it didn’t look like the guests were gonna be able to mingle much, so my amazing and fabulous girl Dee with balls o’ steel just turned around, tapped Chad on the shoulder and said something like “do you want to talk with us for a while?” and he did! He came over to our table because Dee asked him, and stood there for ages, just shooting the shit drinking his beer. I have no idea what we talked about. I asked if he thought Ash really was dead and he said yes, definitely, but it was Supernatural and he could come back. I said all the Roadhouse crew should come back in and travel around in some sort of chippervan-esque Roadhouse LOL Jaysus did we talk shite XD We got onto the subject of mullets somehow and I don’t know why but I had said about growing a mullet before the panel on Saturday. So I stared really hard at something on the wall and concentrated on growing my hair. He laughed, probably thought I was crazy but he joined in! Was like, “is that how you grow hair, by squinting” or some shit. We weren't meant to take posed picturs of us and the stars, so we were kind of surreptisiously taking some. I asked Chad that if I were to look over there and lean in and HE was to look over there and lean ina nd someone just HAPPENED to take a photo would that be alright with him. He laughed and said yeah - photo is below and I look shite 'cause I'm making a face and laughing. He also said he felt left out, what with all of us standing there with our EyeCon passes around our necks, so he took his out! It said GGUEST CHAD LINDBERG on it, but was the generic EyeCon pic with Jared on the front. I said each guest should have their own picture as the main own. He was turning around with the thing slung around his neck, holding it up and showing everyone when he caught Gabe's eye across the room. I can't remember why but he started messing and pulled the thing off his neck while looking at Gabe and slammed it on the ground! Gabe was WETTING himself laughing, so funny. Anyways yes, Chad, man of relatively little words (well, I'm not writing everything he said, 'cause I can't remember it) but he’s such a dote – very sweet and courteous, willing to entertain and put up with crazy fan shit. Well SOME crazy fans…Didn’t get to talk to Gabe or Sam really. I had said to Chad that Gabe was kind of cornered in there and we felt bad so he went over and did his thing there. Think he came back, can’t remember, but he was then like, I’m gonna go help Sam out too. So YAY Chad!

Jim was over at the wall at this point and Dee really wanted to talk to him about Deadwood so we headed over and he recognised us straight away! Was asking us all about Ireland, said he had Irish friends and that he wanted to come here at some point. He was so animated when he was talking about Deadwood - he seemed to really love that show, and was devastated when it stopped. Dee asked him to say ‘cocksucker’, ‘cause he always says it in the show, and he said “you want it in an Irish accent?” and we were like YEAH and he did – a really good one! Slightly Northern Irish, but damn good nonetheless! Ha, Sam mentioned that on stage as well I think, that someone got Jim to say the ‘c’ word he says in Deadwood hehehe. So we were nattering away and they were trying to usher the guests out and Jim was like “wait, I gotta go say hi to some people”. We thought he was gonna move off somewhere else, but he came with us back to our table and said hi to everyone there! Our table were the ones he wanted to say hi to ‘cause we said our friends were over there!!! What a nice guy, seriously, I can’t say enough. When he went we realised Gabe was behind us, trying to leave. So Dee tapped him on the shoulder again and we were like we know you have to go but just thought we’d say hi! He shook our hands, realised we were the Irish girls and asked us our names. I said mine and said “I’m really sorry you’re dead” and he said “me too!!!”. To remember us he kept saying Jen Ireland #1, Edwina Ireland #2. We introduced him to Mel and Amy and he was like New York #1 and Michigan #1. Absolute sweetheart, flying chat, wish we could talk more :(

My lovely darling Mel took some photos of the cocktail party (one by Shannen too I think?) so I'm knicking them and posting them here (if that's ok :D tell me if not Mel ♥) PLEASE do not take, or I will be forced to lock this post and the pics. There will be blood, I tell you.

Our "sneaky" photo: Mel, me and Chad. Obviously.

Chad and his badge. Again obviously.

I think that’s all that happened on the Friday…think we just ended up falling back to our room after that. Can’t think can’t think…oh one thing, someone later on that weekend said, well actually ASKED Chad to his face, if he was drunk. Apparently someone was saying that he was falling all over the place, said he was drunk but God no he wasn’t! He had like two or three beers, that’s it. He seemed kind of affronted at that and well may he, ‘cause that didn’t happen. We stood up for him when she said that LOL

Anyways, I see that this has taken up a lot of room, so I might just do a day by day thing? Leave this one on it’s own. So I’ll keep posting as I try to remember :D

I'm so glad that you had an awesome fun filled time.
It was very good of you to make sure they knew where you were from.
Ireland is a wonderful place when it's not raining.
I'm so jealous that Jim asked about Ireland and I wasn't there to hear it, smacks self for not saving and going.

I'm glad I did too - it would have been horrible if we went over there and didn't have fun. But we did so YAY!

Being Irish certainly was a good thing - made people remember us!
