So onward to another post about another day. Don't worry, only this one and another one left ;) Sorry this one took so long, work got in the way.

Things are getting fuzzier the further I move away from the weekend, but I'll try my best - I left out a bit from the post about Friday, that we had a chat with Sam as Voni was escorting her out of the room! She remembered us as the Irish girls from Chicago which was cool, and looked about ready to start into a long chat but she had to go :(

Anyways, Saturday… not gonna go into all the panels in detail, mostly ‘cause I can’t remember them and they’re all out there to read anyway, but I have a few pics and a quick vid of Jim saying his idgit line. I'm about as eloquent un-eloquent thing (see?), and this report is all "like" and "he said she said" but bear with me. I won't go through everything, just thoughts on it all and things that other people may not have.

Yeah, so it started with Jim’s Q&A session. I think he was still a little dumbstruck at seeing us all there, and they didn’t seem to give him guidance as to how to handle the questions, but he just took them as they came and handled them really well. OMG I can’t believe someone gave him a shirt that said, “I read John/Bobby”, he had no clue. Well he seemed to have no clue, but you never know. Think he got that it was something hilarious and a tad naughty ‘cause of the way we were hooting and a-laughing! He retold the story of Jared pulling and twisting his toe when they were filming Dream a Little Dream, so I got a pic of him reclining like he was in the bed. I learned a few things I hadn’t known about him – that he was in Nam, and that he wrote loads of screenplays, particularly about Nam and war-type settings. Thought it was sad when he mentioned the cancer and autism societies, but I think it was great that he didn’t name just one charity, that he gave the general area which meant that if fans do want to give to charities that stars mention, they can choose anything instead of one in particular; share the love and wealth and all. He is such a nice guy, I can’t stop saying it.

The lame “special event” on the schedule was an auction for the breakfasts – well, I’m sure it wasn’t lame if I had money to spend on it, and I know it wasn’t lame for those who DID get it, but we just left the room when that went one ‘cause ya know, I aint gots no cash for that.

The next thing up for us was the Roadhouse Q&A, which was a really nice idea, having Sam, Chad and Alona together. Sam is such a sweetheart, a real matriarch, helping the other two by leading them through the questions and such. She was at an angle kinda, facing them a little like she was coaxing them along or something. Chad, as I’ve said, is a man of very few words. I think he was like that most of the time in the Q&A ‘cause he wasn’t listening LOL But when he did it was hilarious. His Ash face, and the kicking down of doors and shotgun posing (this is what he wanted from Ash if he didn’t die – Winchesters and Chad on the road). Everyone kept asking about what they thought their backstories were, which was daft really because they wouldn’t necessarily think that far back, or deep into the character if it wasn’t relevant, but I loved Chad’s idea of Ash’s background, how he ended up at the Roadhouse. It was all awwwwwwwwww when he said something like he was there to protect them and vice versa. Sweet. Heart. Alona seems to be very bitter about her character’s fate – she wanted Jo to be kick ass; instead they made her prissy and fairly weak. I hope they bring her and Sam back, but use them to their full potentials, let them be what the show, fans and themselves need.

OMG Sandy Q&A!! She is so sweet. Funny and smart and just so right for Jared, from what I can tell from both people. She kept saying she was nervous, and was hopping around on stage like she needed to pee, but she was really good answering the questions that were thrown at her. I’m glad she got asked questions that were about her and her career – that not everything was about Jared. But she knew that’s what people wanted to hear, and she did deliver. Throwing her head back and laughing was so like Jared, and she has a humour like him too. Sarky and smart, quick-witted and irreverent, just a really enjoyable panel. And she was so cute when she was signing the poster – she clearly didn’t want to write on Jared’s picture, but kept stroking it and saying how cute he was! Put a little silver heart near his ♥

Next up was Gabe. Awwwwwwwwwww Gabe! Pocket sized and adorable as hell, but with a low, rumbley resonating voice that you just wouldn’t expect to come outta something that cute! He had never been at a con, but he said he had done comedy and stand-up and you could see that while nervous facing a room full of fans, he was more than capable of handling himself. That sounds naughty...His favourite line was the droids one, which I just LOVED so much. He was so cute when he was talking about Andy – he loved the show and his character, and loved how they left his storyline open. He was all, they’re gonna ask me to come back (another 'on the road with the Wincehesters' thing LOL) and be a recurring character orrrrrrrr I’m gonna get killed by a little girl LMAO. They had this torso thing that was all ripped up and had blood and guts falling out of it from his death scene and he had taken a picture of him like that and showed it to his mom. He made her cry hehehehe. He also talked about a fic he had read (I think his mom gave it to him?!?!?) – someone asked him the pairing and he was like “pairing, is that what you call it?” and in a small embarrassed voice he said Ash/Andy LMFAO!! All the antics from the cocktail party and the platinum party (coming up) make sense now HAHAHAHA.

Uhhh we missed our Roadhouse shot on Saturday, so we did it Sunday. We decided to go get autographs done instead. We actually did them real quick, and I kinda wish we stayed a bit longer and chatted more. Went to Gabe first; he had his adorable head shot photo, the one where there’s loads of comic behind him on the wall? I said I loved that pic and he thanked me and said he did too. He didn’t like the usual headshots actors did when he got to LA, so he got his friend to take a few pics of him. Quirky and cute, like him methinks! He asked me my name again and was like OHHHH Ireland #1! He put “Jen (Ireland #1), sorry I’m dead, Gabriel Tigerman”. Dee was like why’s SHE #1 so he apologised and put a sad crying face on hers too LOL He also forgot his name half way through his surname and I whispered Tigerman, and he was like OH YEAH, forgot my name there.

Went to Sandy next and she’s just so gorgeous, those damn eyes! She asked where we were from and when we told her she said something like herself and Jared had always wanted to go there. Dee said bring your brolly, 'cause it's always raining and she was like "oh no, we never heard that". We congratulated her on her panel, that she held herself well and she was very funny etc etc. We than gave her chocolate! A pack of Cadbury's Creme Eggs - for those of you have never eaten one, it's the best chocolate egg with a gooey fondant icing centre, so so sweet but mmmmm. She was very excited about that, said she hoped they were really sweet because she needed sugar LOL

Next up was Sam; again, knew us as the Irish girls (I know, I know, you're all sick of hearing me say that, but seriously that's how they remembered us!) and I said if she had time (unlike Chicago) could she draw the shamrock she promised me LOL Before she did, Chad beside her leans over and says, "did you sign this twice?". Turns out, she had autographed a DVD boxset and closed it before it dried so it got all smudged. She was all apologetic; she then licked her thumb and rubbed it out EW!! I said they're the only ones that can say they have Samantha Ferris's spit on their DVD. Anyways, she turned back to me and got nervous drawing the shamrock, didn't want to mess it up, so she got me to draw one. She wasn't impressed with the one she drew though LOL

Next was Chad. Which was uneventful! And Alona, who wrote "thanks for the support" or something. I said she did have the support and she said well you've got the power to do something about it! She seemed a bit cranky, understandable since she stayed in an airport, so I wasn't pissed.

So the next thing for us was the photo op with Jim. I went in on the pic with Dee; nothing much to say really! It was in *click* and go! His autographs were next, and that was good fun. We decided to go up separately, so we could get a bit more time with him, Dee first then me. He is such a dote, a real gent. I have NO idea what we chatted about, but I said I had a little present for him - it was a mini bottle of Jameson, THE best Irish whiskey imho, came from the distillery so it's even better. He loved it! He was drinking a can of Coke and he turned to his PA person thingy and whispered "here, get rid of this"! I said he could stick it in the can and no-one would know LOL He wrote "ya lovely colleen" on it or something to that affect - sweet that he knew the name for girl in Irish, but spelled it the American way LOL

We then went and got relatively dressed up for the banquet and then lined up my badge number. There were a limited number of celebrities therefore a limited number of seats beside them, but we managed to get on a table with Chad. Everyone's kinda bitching about the food and I agree but that's not what made the meal horrible. I tell you, it was the single most awkward meal I have ever experienced, for sitting beside him was one of the Royalty Seat winners, whose name I won't mention but I will if you ask nicely LOL Hmmm maybe I shouldn't go into too much detail, 'cause I don't have anything nice to say about her. Basically she acted as if Chad was there for her 'cause she's liek OMG soooo awesum. She kept trying to get his attention, flicking her hair and shoving her boobs out. She kept asking awful, private RUDE questions and just babbled most of the time. It didn't even sound like SHE knew what she was asking most times, or where she even was. She asked him if he was single, engaged and then gay. Apparently, and I didn't hear this but one of the other girls did, she asked him when he lost his virginity. Yeah. At one point we all leaned in trying to listen to her and decipher her weird sub-human language, as was he apparently 'cause when she finished he just went "what?". She went to get drinks a few times and once a girl from another table came and sat at her place. She said, when she finished talking to him, that she should go as it was someone else's seat and she saw her coming back and I said, I thought fairly stealthily "yeah, you BETTER run" and I looked up laughing. Chad apparently heard 'cause he was looking at me and laughing. I dunno how, but they talked about MySpace and after some babbling she got him to say that he'd friend her. Mmm hmmm sure. I got a fit of the giggles at one point, 'cause she was just being an idiot and I looked up and he was looking at me again, all inquisitive like and I said something along the lines of uhhhhhhhh nothing!!! But he knew, god how could he not. He looked so relieved that he could leave the table. I wish I could have. Jesus it was awful. She kept staring at him when he went around the room, and I swear I could hear the telepathic (or tele-PATHETIC) mutterings of lovemelovemelovemelovemeloveme XD She pissed me off so much and when I knew he was behind me I told Dee to lean in and we blocked her view HAHAHAHAHA I kept doing that, putting my head in her way ah ha, I'm so mean. Anyway, we ran away after it was all finished and got into more comfortable clothes. On our way back we saw Chad; Dee apologised for the crazy girl when we went by and he said thanks. I hope he doesn't think badly of fans now...

The Platinum Party was actually good fun; again too small a room and the bar was shoved near the door, but we got a teaser for Steve's show 'cause he came on stage and did two songs. Then it was Guitar Hero time and boy was that fun! Chad played against one of the Noobie Games guys and I'd say he was allowed win, heh. Then himself and Gabe played each other and Gabe picked the easy setting, bless! Then Chad and a girl, who beat his ass and was completely cool about it, even though he was trying to distract her. And Gabe lost spectacularly to another girl, but decided to play like a rock star instead of actually trying to play well - playing it with his teeth and behind his back and the like. Awesome little dude...who is probably about my height in reality, but short for a dude no? The girl from the banquest apparently got kicked out 'cause she went to grab Chad's phone to put her number in O.o and then grabbed poor Gabe's ass!

We were all kicked out (much to Dizzy's dismay, seems like he was enjoying himself LOL) so they could set up for Steve's concert. By this time I was wall-fallen and could hardly keep my eyes open. Steve looked great and he was really chatty this time, explained all his songs. And he sang one for Amy! Her favourite ;) Jim was there, sitting on a couchy chair thing up front, which I thought was really nice, that he wanted to stay for the concert.

We were planning on going downstairs and making a page for the scrapbook for Jared, but we were just too knackered - everything had gone way over. Which is why, when we got into our pjs, we went to bed instead of the pj party LOL

Sunday's post will be coming soon, I promise. And then you're rid of me ;) Well...talking about EyeCon...

Great report! The crazy girl you're talking about had the couch in front of me (I was in the front row) and the only things she showed up for was the Roadhouse panel and Jared's panel (although she was late for that one). She kept talking to Alona throughout the Roadhouse panel and tried to give her some energy drink, but Alona kept telling her no.

Thank you! They were the only two things she turned up for? God almighty, she was insufferable. I'm glad Jared wasn't around for her to maul him.

She did WHAT at the Roadhouse panel!! OMG that's hilarious.

I'm so sorry I never talked to you - I'm weird when it comes to LJ people, I always think people won't recognise me and go who tha f*ck are you!?!?, so I run away from possible rejection LOL Hope you had an awesome time!!

I'm so glad that everyone seemed to have such a great time at EyeCon! Alas, I never go to conventions.

Chad looks so different with short hair. When I first saw pics of him, it took me five minutes to figure out who he was!

You SHOULD go to a convention, they can be so much fun!

He does look, which was unexpected LOL I was staring right at him when he first turned up going "who's that, he's cute OMFG CHAD LINDBERG!!!" XD

OMG the weird Chad girl. I only HEARD about her. People were saying she sounded drugged. I know she got escorted out. We were downstairs waiting for someone when Kenny was talking to security about her, saying they didn't want her in the hotel on Sunday for fear of what she'd do to Jared if that's what she did to Chad :S lol.

GABE IS MY FAVORITE! Fuck Jared (and ew, not really) because Gabe was so much more fun. I told him he was my favorite thing ever, better than Jared and he busts out with, "You have good taste!" I love him.

I wouldn't be surprised if she was drugged up to the nines - she certainly acted like that, and had that glassy look of someone on a lot of shit.

I don't think they fully kicked her out though, she came back into the party and was there for Jared's panel. I guess she spent so much money on the seat that they couldn't really kick her out. Unfortunately, because it was horrible!

Bage is so freaking adorable, it's just not funny. Just did a fly-by on your pic post and saw the ones with Gabe and awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww lookit!!!

You gave Sandy some Cadbury's creme eggs.
Excellent choice my dear, they're friggin' divine.
It sounded like you had a blast.
I liked how you described each special guest and how they were and things like that.

Yup, Creme Eggs and she loved them, pretty much ate them all in less than a day - surprised she wasn't puking her ring up LMFAO

Everyone was so great, had to say something about them all :D

Hey! Hope your flight home went okay. My sister and I got stuck at the Atlanta airport overnight on Sunday. Yuck, we should've stayed in Orlando instead. Heh, Sandy actually walked by us at one point eating a Cadbury egg and she looked so cute trying to make sure it didn't fall when she bit into it! Had so much fun hanging out with you guys...even at the banquet dinner table where we had crazy girl to deal with. ;)

HI!!!! OMG we didn't get to say goodbye to you gals. You got stuck? Damn that's terrible. Yeah, it would've been so much fun if you did stay!!

It was great meeting you guys btw :D And yes, our (relative) sanity held us together in the face of crazy ;)

Ahahahaha she was walking 'round eating them? I love that woman XD
