So here we are, the last day. Took me forever to get to it, been a busy bee these past few days. I'll try to remember as much as I can, 'cause it's pretty much all gone now!

Sunday morning, all (not so) bright and early, Dee and myself get ready and head down for breakfast before Jared's panel. The restaurant had taken ages the day before, so we decided to go into the little shop thingy in the hotel. While grabbing a very nutritious breakfast of Apple/Cinnimon Nutrigrain bars we hear "Hi guys!" from behind us - none other than Jim Beaver, roaming the tiny isles of the shop, having an old chat with us. It was such a laid back, normal conversation, like you were in the local shop chatting to a neighbour or friend. He said he didn't get any sleep the night before, finally getting two hours when he fell asleep at five in the morning. When he asked us what we were doing we said we were going to Jared's panel at nine and I said we were having breakfast and held up a Nutrigrain bar. His look was so Bobby, a tut-tut-tut-shame-on-you kind of look! He said he was going to go and get some shut eye before the next thing he had to do, but he wasn't sure what it was. I said "oh it's the Hunters shot," < insert Bobby look > "the one with you and Jared" and he was like "ugh, THAT guy" LOL. It was such a lovely conversation, he's really a great guy. We talked about loads but ya know *squirrells away conversation for self* :D

We legged it upstairs and got our seats and, since he had a tight schedule that day, Jared was suddenly onstage! GORGEOUS. Black shirt that was just mmmm. And an Impala hat that a fan gave him I think. God those boys would look good in anything - and nothing I'd say... There's no point in going into the whole panel, there's reports all over the place that are more detailed and coherent than mine, but I'll say a few things I guess. He knows what drives the fans mad, and he plays us all so well - like the biting thing? Gnashing his teeth like in the season one gag reel, but reminiscent of Heart, he was like "you're too easy" when all the flashbulbs went off LOL He was great, entertaining as ever. And OMG when he was talking to the little boys? Hearts melted, you could hear them, all squishy and puddles of goooooo. He was very courteous, especially when THAT crazy girl kept talking to him near the end - she had no idea who Lilith was!! And he kept his cool and gave a really good answer when asked about fan fiction. I once thought that question was good, like in Asylum last year, but people are taking it oo far now. They're just saying it to make them uncomfortable and to get noticed. So stupid.

Have a couple of crap photos:

It was then off to get photos done with him. We were all nattering away in the line when he just appears from this room (marked "accounts" or something, when in fact it was a laundry room corridor thing!) and my god YUM!! He had to get through all the fans, and fair play, nobody jumped him. A girl fainted ahead of us - Dee told me last night it was because the girl had a phobia of tall people? Jared thought she was messing and stood up, and roared I think, and she went WHUMP. I shouldn't laugh, 'cause I'm sure it was very traumatic for both parties *suppresses imminent giggles* Dee had a single shot, then we went together, then I had a single. When I went over for the double, he smiled at me and said "hey babe". Dee was like "oh SHE gets babe" so he goes "sorry baby, sweetheart, darling" or something like that LOL

Next up, the Hunters shot...I think. I may mix things up now. Not much to tell really, Jim seemed really stunned, like it was all too much. That was definitely the case because we went upstairs after the Hunters shot to get presents and photos for Jared. Dee forgot something so she legged it upstairs and I stayed on the couchy thing at the elevators. Suddenly, Jim's there beside me, pressing the button, holding things he was given (I gather). I said "Hi Jim, how was that? Was it terrifying?" and he turns around eyes all o.O and says "oh HEY! No no, not terrifying" and he starts pacing, going round in circles as he searches for the word, waiting for the elevator "it was...WEIRD, ya know? I mean, they told me that I was gonna get a few pictures, and I thought GREAT I'll be meeting more fans then BAM, swish swish swish (this is the only way I can describe the noise he made, like everyone going by him really fast as he made that hand motion too) it was all one after teh other, next next next and it was so...IMPERSONAL, ya know?". He said this last bit as he was in the elevator, holding it open talking to me, looking absolutely dazed! I was like "YEAH I know, well go get some sleep" and he said "no I can't I've got something else to do" and I said "yeah the autographs with Jared" (I swear I knew more about his schedule than HE did LOL) and he looked so knackered and said "ohh yeah, well see you then" and headed up to his room.

We went to get our Roadhouse shot then. Again, nothing much to report, except it turned out nice! When we went in to get it Sam goes "hey these are the Irish girls, these guys are from Ireland" or something to the other two. The picture was taken and I just mutter, "God I fucking HATE photographs" to which Chad did his crazy giggle at me ♥ He then headed into the main room for the autographs, Jim and Jared. I wish we didn't get Jim's autograph on the Saturday, because he was kind of sitting there, not doing anything for a lot of it, just watching what Jared was doing and what he was getting and just scanning the room. We were in the third row and directly in front of the tables. Every now and again we had a clear view, and then the first two rows cleared and we were able to see unhindered. Dayum Jared looked fine in that Beanie. And Jim still looked stunned LOL The two of them were chatting and messing before it started, and Sandy was wandering around behind them in her Kentucky shirt courtesy of [ profile] janglyjewels ;) Jim kept catching our eye and we were messing, making faces and trying to talk over to him - he was so funny! I had no idea what he was saying, but we all found it very funny LOL

When it was our turn we were so nervous, Dee especially. I went first, got an autograph for my self and my friend Sinead (she was dying for him to say her name, and when I said it to him he was like "it's really lovely" ♥ I then said I had a little stupid present - it's hard to expalin - but it's a peanut and it's holding two dogs and says "nuts about my dogs" or something. He did his whole throwing head back and laughing thing. I said it's lips were like Jensen's (all pouty), dunno what he thought of that LMFAO I said Dee has a better present - she gave him a bottle of Jameson with his name on it. He was so unbelievably gobsmacked, didn't know what to say. I gave him a small bottle and said it was for Jensen and it was small 'cause he wasn't there LOL Jim jumped in and said "oh hey I got one of those!". When Jared was all o.O at the whiskey, Sandy jumped up behind him and said "OMG Jen and Edwina from Ireland!! They gave me THESE" and she held up a half-scoffed Creme Egg. AHAHAHA gotta love 'em. We moved along then, 'cause the line was meant to keep moving 'cause he had to get his flight back to Vancouver.

We kinda just lazed around then, looking at people leave - saw Gabe going, he was the only one actually, everyone else was still roaming around! We saw Sandy running round like a headless chicken, so we called over to her. She was saying something about cases and Jared having too much stuff - poor gal was obviously taking all his gifts and had no room for them! Dee asked her if she liked the Creme Eggs and she said she loved them and that she had only one left. I was like o.O "it was a six pack!" and she put her hand to her mouth and goes "oh, I ate five?!?!?" HA! Where does she put it...

We went and packed then and lazed around again, got room service and headed down to the Mezzanine level where everything had been to meet our girls, "lj user="ames1010"> and [ profile] augustfading, and [Unknown site tag] and [ profile] shannenb and a few others later on. There was an impromptu party going on in the Noobie gamers room - Jim had a gaggle of girls/women around him (we walked in and waved and he laughed at us), Sam was wandering around outside it, and Steve was playing Rock Band with a few people. We had heard someone singing Bon Jovi's Dead or Alive a few minutes before, turnd out it was him LOL We hung around for a while at the couches, sharing photo ops and nattering away. Dee saw Jim heading up to his room and we went over to say thank you for coming blah blah blah (again, keeping coversation to myslef HAHAHA I'm ev0l) and a few more people came over. I had drawn a picture of some of the guests in Mel's book thingy, as stick figures, and I had drawn Jim with a hat and facial hair. When he saw it he just paused, looked at me and said "I look like a dirty q-tip" XD Got a really nice photo with Mel, Jim, Dizzy, Dee and Rachel and we chit chatted away before letting Jim head off to bed. We got to say thanks to Kenny and had a chat with Voni and Dizzy, all relaxing after a long and busy weekend. And then it was off to bed ourselves!

It was such a great weekend, with so many memories about the great guests and of course all the people I met. It was great seeing those of you who I haven't seen since Chicago - we will meet again! I have to say, EyeConw as most definitely worth it - worth the jet lag, worth the money, (almost) worth the horrible airport security that makes me fear for my life HAHAHAHA. We had such a relaxed weekend, it wasn't that rushed on Sunday either, we had loads of time with the guests and they obviously felt comfortable enough to hang around, and that all meant that we had time to hang with our friends! So it was an all round good time, hiccups aside. So well done Kenny, Voni, Dizzy, Froggy and everyone else involved.

And here endeth the Eyeconage According to Jen.

Uhmmmmmmmmmmmmmm no? I won't have the money! While the trip was amazing and great and all the rest, it cost a bomb and I won't be doing it again for a while. Which sucks 'cause it might be Jensen :(

he smiled at me and said "hey babe". Dee was like "oh SHE gets babe" so he goes "sorry baby, sweetheart, darling" or something like that
Hahaha, I love it! That was great. I think Jared has been picking things up from Jensen because he called Amy and I a "twofer", lol.

Also the story about Sandy trying to figure out how to get everything back home was really sweet, especially with how Creation told us last time that con guests usually just leave everything behind.

And Jim will forever be Uncle Jim I think, he was such a pleasant surprise at this con. It seemed like he tried so hard to be involved in everything, he was even sitting in a chair up front at Steve's show. I love that he seemed to be enjoying it all and just... he is the best!

I miss you girls, I want to go back!

I think Jared has been picking things up from Jensen
I have no doubt that he has! Maybe he picked up the "hey babe" from Jensen's bodyguard too LOL

Yeah I thought it was nice too, knowing that he brought things home. Dee said that he keeps everything, and that's kinda proof eh!

I forgot to put in another bit about Jim - I had said to him on Sunday morning that Is aw him at the concert and asked if he enjoyed it. He said he had heard so much about Steve and had never heard any of his stuff, so he asked if he could go to the gig! Sweet no? Bless him, he's great :D

I miss you girls too, it was so much fun seeing y'all :D LOOOOOOOOOOOVE YOU XXXXX

I really don't know what to say that I haven't said to a bajillion other people because "Glad you had a great time!" is a getting a little lame. Sigh.

But, I'm glad you had a great time, Jen! (eta: I didn't even realize I'd done that, haha.) I wish I could have been there with you guys. :(

By the way, why on earth did Sandy like that KY shirt so much? Lol. I saw pictures (before I heard where she got it) and was all "Why does Sandy have on a University of Kentucky shirt?" It's funny...that's my TEAM, man! :)

Nope, not lame - I'm glad I had a great time too!

Not sure why she liked it - Becky ([ profile] janglyjewels) gave it to her and I think she posted about it :D She said it was the only casual thing she had to wear so she kept wearing it. Guess it was the same for the pink shirt that said "Sam Winchester cries his way through sex" LOL

OMG Jared with the little boys. I want him and Sandy to make babies ASAP, the squintiest babies on the planet but with big teeth and dimples and floppy, dark hair. Jared is apparently keen to start that, according to Sandy. She should let him get on it. Her uterus is aging, those eggs are dying lmao.

I think I saw you or another Irish girl at random. I didn't want to walk up and be like, "WHAT'S UP!" and have it be someone random and then get a "WTF! Who the fuck are you!" back LOL.

I know, right! They'll make such gorgeous kids, and you could really see him being an adorable daddy. The way he was crouching over the table to talk to them at the autographs, soooo cute!

If you saw another Irish girl, it was Dee ([ profile] abydosww), 'cause we were the only Irish gals there! I get you though, I saw one or two people I recognised and didn't want to go up and get myself embarrssed and rejected LMAO

That was a very good report of your Sunday.

I'm really glad that Jared was shocked when you and your friend gave him the bottle of Jamesons.

I liked the fact that ye bumped into Jim alot and just talked to him like he was a normal guy, sometimes I think they prefer that because after all they're only human, *giggles*.

I have a question for you though, did you need a visa to go to Orlando?, I have the old passport not he new one that's all fandangilly.
I just want to know incase I end up going to Eyecon next year.

Thanks again :D

Yeah he was gobsmacked, could see he didn't know what to say. And yeah, Jim was so great. Just talking to him normally was brilliant - he said he was surrounded by girls at the impromptu party thing and every now and again people would say OMG YOU'RE AWESOME!!! He was like, "I'm not awesome! I do my laundry, I forget to pay the electricity bills, I'm not awesome!!!" LOL Just a normal guy, and I guess he liked being treated that way.

You need a credit card to stay in hotels - they take it at the booking, and use it as a garauntee or something. I had to get one for that going to the States last year. Unless you book on someone else's card, and pay cash when you're leaving? But they might want the card from the booking and I think they take it and take the details again when you check in.

As for the passport, I don't have one of the new ones that are scanned, but I got by fine! Was never stopped about it anyways. Unless that's why I was stopped in Chicago...but they never said so meh. I guess it makes things easier, but I've found that it hasn't mattered yet.
