||U2 - "Beautiful Day"
I somehow managed to jam my finger into the front door, causing the skin under the fingernail to turn red and blue, so typing is REALLY hurting at the moment. It HAD to be one of the fingers I use to type, didn't it? So, if there's typo's, then blame it on my finger.
Well, first off..I would like to apologize to a certain someone whom knows who they are..just wanted to say sorry for talking about her so often lately and acting kinda..well, depress-y..that the word? My life is anything but bad. I have everything to be thankful for right now, and forth and foremost is you. So yes, my true self, it's back. To go all Spike on yah --- "DADDY'S PUTTIN DOWN THE HAMMA!" .. theoretically speaking.
My weekend was a bang if there ever was one.
Flashback weekend was generous enough to invite me to be the main guest at the Buffy Fan Event, which began May 9th and lasted, well, all weekend.
It was in Rosemont and Park Ridge Illinois, which, for those of you whom aren't aware of it, is considored part of Chicago. ::pauses, shaking his hand with the bad finger on it a few times::
First day, there was a cocktail party thing. Fans were there, it was pretty cool. After that, the band had a Q & A's session at the Pickwick Theatre. After some questions, the one I knew was coming finally came. Someone stood up and said, "How old are each of you all, and James, you have to come clean." So.. I came clean. I'm - Dontcha wish you would of been there to hear that? :P Only people who'll ever know.
After that, when we got on the bus, me and Charlie (GotR's guitarist) got sick. Ugh, food poisioning. We stayed up all night puking.
Next day, I headed over to the Pickwick Theatre. Good thing me and Charlie weren't sick anymore. The band (Ghost of the Robot), we practiced until it was show time. We did one performance for the people at the Buffy Fan Event at 7, and then one after that at 10. So yeah, big night. It went well though, I thought. At least the crowd wasn't booing, they were wooing, really.
Day after, I headed over to the Raddison O'Hare, the hotel where the Buffy Event was held at. I took photos with fans for about 3 hours, and then signed autographs straight after for about 4 or 5 hours. LOTTA people there, didn't think there'd be THAT many.
After all that, they sent a limo to take me to the Pickwick again. I did a Q and A's thing with just me. Some fans were..well, I love the fans, they just seem to get a little..wild?..at times. I mean, during the concert the night before, someone yelled "TAKE IT OFF" as I scratched my chest with my hand under my shirt. I didn't "take it off", but yeah..I'm taking that as a compliment, though, even though, as I've said before, I'm not sure how to take compliments..I mean, I'm not egotistic at all, so I guess it's hard for me? I dunno. But yeah, Q and A's..there was this little 4 year old girl in the middle of the isle up front..omg, she was so cute. She yelled out, "I LOVE YOU SPIKE!" then corrected herself by saying "I LOVE YOU JAMES!" Jeez, that was SO cute! I responded by mumblin into the microphone "Kids just slay me".
I hated saying "only one more question", since the guy running the event said the wheather was getting bad, so we couldn't keep it going longer than schedualed.
All in all, my weekend was awesome. It rocked. The fans rock.
On a last note, I'd just like to say thanks to all the fans who came, and any fans that didn't, since without all them, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you.
