Okay....the recap...part two. I really hope it's not as long as the first one. Anyway..............
So after Laura's event we were TIRED. Sleepy time. The next morning we decided to not rush things and didn't get up til like 10am. We figured we could get some breakfast and then head over to the main event because as Tanya informed me the lunch they serve leaves a lot to be desired.
So luckily we got to sit in two of the front tables, and had a great view of the main stage...although the lighting in there is horrible, that's why I only had like three decent pics from the luncheon. Moving along...we ate, or rather didn't eat. I got poked at by some lady at my table for not eating a salad...I was like, "you can have it!" Mushy veggies, cheesy potato slop and a brick of chicken. Oh and for dessert...something I think was ice cream.
Then finally after about an HOUR of raffling stuff off (I felt like I was at a bingo game), John Ingle came out and introduced all of the actors. Laura got a very nice, loud applause...I of course was screaming!
Once everyone was seated they did a little Q&A. Laura got a question about how Carly can have the twisted logic that what she did with Sonny is way less worse that what Jax did with Kate. Laura justified it by saying that with ex's you can have go backs and redos...THEY DON'T COUNT!
Megan Ward also got a question about the SKate wedding and if it'll actually happen. Megan said that she went dress shopping the other day, so it's likely. She also made the comment that this wedding won't be like any of Sonny's other women, lol, and she looked straight at Laura when she said that. Laura jokingly said it's never gonna happen.
They gave out the FCW Awards again this year and Laura won Outstanding Lead Actress, yay!
After all that, the actors went to their respective tables. Thank god Laura was in a separate room because the main event room was piping hot! We went and set our stuff down behind Laura's table so we didn't have to lug it everywhere. And then we were off! Tanya and I went to see Megan first. Megan likes to chat, lol, her line moved at a snail's pace, but it was okay. Megan is a sweetheart...honestly I can't remember what we talked about, something about getting some love or something, she said it in jest, oh hell I can't remember. Next was Brandon! That is one fine man, I didn't have anything for him to sign so I just took a pic. Then we saw Julie who was really sweet, got a pic with her and then moved along to RICK!!!!
This needs it's own separate paragraph. Rick is just amazing...and hot...and amazing...and hot some more. I got up to him and I said, "DUDE!!" and he said, "Duuuuuuuuuuude!" then I said, "You know you're really hot right?" He said thank you, then I said, "You're hot hot, not heat hot, although you're probably that too." He said he was suprisingly cool actually, lol. I took a pic with him, then Tanya got up there. She asked him about GL and Alan Michael Spaulding. He said he loved the role, and wondered what has happened to the show. He watched Beth's last day, but doesn't watch it much anymore. He likes to talk, love love love love him!
After Rick, we were about to die of a heat stroke so we went back to Laura's room, which Dylan, Carolyn, Derk, Drew, and Blake were all in as well. We actually grabbed a couple drinks on the way back to the room, lol. We sat around over by Laura's table for awhile and Tanya took some pics (good ones I might add..."huh?"). In the open room next to Laura's and behind the wall that was behind her, the hotel staff was setting up for a wedding. They started playing some music, so she started dancing. Then she looked around at the people setting up the wedding and wondered why they were dressed so nicely...Tanya piped in so eloquently and said, "Because they work here!" Laura's response..."I KNOW!"
Not much else went on at the event...we eventually went over to Drew and Derk's table to get a pic with them which was very nice. Then we came back to Laura's table for awhile...she was starving and wanted a pepperoni pizza, no such luck in that department, but someone was able to get her a bag of pretzels. We stole Laura's idea and had a pizza that night for dinner, and it was mmm mmm good! I'm surprised the order was right because when I called...Dominos...the guy taking my order didn't speak the greatest English and was talking about a mile a minute. I think my response to everything was..."uh...huh...yeah...uh sure...thanks!" *click*
So Saturday night...after pizza...we went down to the Patio Cafe and sat outside, had a few drinks and low and behold, we saw Sarah Brown...well the back of her anyway! She was heading to her event. That was the one person both of us were really bummed out that we didn't get to see. Oh well, next year. We hung around on the patio for about 3 hours swaping stories. Dylan Cash had been sitting at another table for a little while chatting with some people and then came over to inform us that we had been sitting there, "for like 8 hours!"
It was nice out, like really nice!
Eventually we made back up to the room...where I conveniently passed out on the bed...face down...arms above my head. Lesson...don't pass out in that position! It's hella hard to move when you do in fact wake up! Tanya was no help, lol! ...."You gonna sleep like that?" "Uhhhhhh huh." "Okay."
Sunday was a fun day, we slept in! Went to Subway for lunch and then walked down to a bowling alley down the street. It was cosmic bowling and they had black lights...made your shoes look pretty damn cool! We bowled a couple games then shot a couple games of pool and headed out. Oh and Dylan showed up at the bowling alley...Tanya and I were convinced that he was stalking us.
Then we headed over to Starbucks and back to the hotel. We hung out for awhile then went down to the lobby to shoot some pool. It was all good except for the beginning when this dude kept hovering around the table telling us what shot to make and where the chalk was, lol!
Monday was the day we headed back home. Caught the shuttle to the airport at like 10:30am. 40-effin-5...damn bumpiest highway! We got to ride in the car pool lane though, lol. The flight home wasn't bad, minus the screaming kid who while we were at the gate tried to shove his lolly pop down my throat, lol!
All in all a freaking fabulous trip! My roomie was fantastic and we had a blast! Laura was a hoot and a half and so much fun to be around. Can't wait to go again! Wow, this one might be even longer...my apologies, lol!
