I'm at the airport ... I'm at the airport waiting for Mandy Moore .. I got my Mom to help me get dressed I sort of didn't want her to think I was a scruffy idiot as well as super nerd, but now I feel over dressed. I asked Jessica to find out what type of flowers where Mandy's favorites she said Yellow Roses, I've arranged for her room to be filled with them when we arrive at the hotel ... is that a bit too much?

I just really want her to like me, she is .. well ..

(Laughs to himself a little as he's only really talked to her a few times, but after seeing her on the TV has had a sort of thing about her.)

I wonder if she really wants to like me, like me and just not want to be friends, well I don't mind just being friends, because you can never have to many, I'm just worried that when she meets me she will sort of wish she wasn't going to be stuck with me on a long flight over to Ireland. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

(Looking at his reflection in the window semi panicking trying to flatten down his hair a bit as it has a habbit of sticking up all over the place.)

I guess I'm really a pretty boring person, actually, I sit here watching the tv with my brother and we talk about nothing yet its good or at least I enjoy it, sounds lame I guess, but life isn't as it is in the movies, no real super heroes out there to make it exciting or extreme. I'm a bit worried about Elijah he certainly has changed a lot since I met him, I wonder if inviting him here was a good idea or not, any way we'll see.

Its a bit hard knowing what to write in here too, I could go on about the ice hockey we've been watching but I'm sure no one wants to read about that, I think I'll go chat to Lij in aim and see if his mind is still addled.

I don't think eating too much candy can make a person quite so derranged. I think he's been doing something else, but that's just me. Well as I am currently talking to Lij and he's scaring the hell out of me with the skittle tossing and stuff I guess I will once more fade into not around invisiblity.

Hello Journal …

Hello anyone who wants to read it too, I want to say thanks to everyone for letting me join this community, but I guess I should really start by apologizing to Jeia for saying I didn’t know who she was or what she did, I really am sorry I didn’t mean to sound so rude. And congratulations, even though it’s a little late. Tell Orlando I’ll get in touch with him soon.

I talked to Mandy Moore …

(Stopping writing for a while trying to think of how to write about the conversation, finding it a little hard to explain.)

Mandy Moore spoke to me …

(Once more stopping what he’s doing, biting his bottom lip, shaking his head and trying to carry on again.)

Mandy Moore spoke to me on AIM and told me she was shy and I actually acted like a nerdy fan, and didn’t know what to say and blurted out, you talked to me, yes very, very immature and extremely pathetic, no wonder people find it easy to believe I’m younger than what I am when I carry on like that.

After the shock of talking to her for the first time though, we actually talked about home and stuff, she told me she’s been in France for the past year, I don’t think I would be able to cope being away from home all that time.

Talking of home, its great being here, even though it won’t be for very long, Aaron and I am going to go and check out some old ice hockey videos and drink a few beers, and probably fight over who the best super hero is, I still think Batman was he thinks it’s the Incredible Hulk … sorry no Xmen in the list.

I don't know very much about keeping an online journal but I imagine it will be a learning curve, a place I can write anything that is currently troubling me or anything that is annoying me which at the moment is quite a bit. I wonder about the state of apathy that hangs over the heads of most inhabitants of the world, I wonder about life in general, if there is any future for the human race and I wonder about the sort of people that spend hours upon hours writing and drawing pictures and sending them to various famous people. Do they have such empty pitiful lives that there is no other outlet for their creative talents, for I'm not denying many of these people are trully great artists.

It just troubles me a little that anyone no matter how gifted they are feel the need to draw almost photo like, quality pictures of myself in less than ... normal positions with other cast members of the XMen movies, it wouldn't worry me in the slightest if the majority of them had me hugging up to Hale Berry but the vast majority seem to be obsessed with me and Patrick Stewart.

Do I come over as being gay?

I hope not, fame sometimes can suck, which is another reason I have started up this journal, in the vague hope that others will talk freely about how they deal with constant fan mail and slash type stories being delivered to them?

Don't take any of this the wrong way, I'm not normally narrowminded or biggoted about anything I just have never been subjected to this kind of over the top strangeness before. At times I wish I had never taken on the role of Iceman, it seems my whole world is changing and there is very little I can do about it.

I'm 24 I am famous all over the world for portraying a teenager, why is it some people would rather believe in the fantasy they see on the screen instead of reality? I don't mind reading the letters that ask me questions about being a superhero, in fact I answer a few of them they're entertaining. I think I've done enough blabbering on for one session though so I guess I'm signing off.

Shawn Ashton.
