Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan looking back over some of the FYC events we were lucky to attend this season and all the unicorns I’ve been able to meet. Squee! The most recent unicorn had been on my list for a long time.
You might remember my near-miss with Andrew Rannells at the Paley Festival a million years ago.
Well, I’ve been trying to meet him ever since! Usually he just ignores me, waves, or goes spontaneously deaf. You know, the way I love for celebs to treat me (that’s sarcasm, by the way). But this time I was determined to get my picture. I’d tried too hard for too long and am a legitimate fan of his – I loved Andrew on Girls, The Book of Mormon, and Black Monday (among other things). So, when the FYC event for Black Monday came up, I knew I had to go.
Despite the event happening during my birthday trip, I re-arranged everything in order to be back for it. I was getting this unicorn!!! Once the Q&A ended, I jumped out of my seat and walked straight to the stage in front of Andrew. I asked for a picture and as we were taking it, had to say something stupid like, “You’ve shot me down so many times.” Why did that need to be said? Sometimes I just can’t help myself, unfortunately. I’d kind of expected Andrew and the rest of the cast to mingle and be super nice, but Don Cheadle ran out of there like he was on fire and the rest only stayed for a bit (not nearly as long as I thought they would). Still, I’m really happy to have finally slayed that unicorn and gotten my picture with Andrew. Hooray!
