It’s like Christmas here at the MTF offices! Yep, Christmas… Right now, I feel full of joy, like my cold fanboy heart is warming… Like Jesus is rubbing my tummy… Why you may ask? One, because we finally get a new report from Awesome Anushika who has been locked away with sickness and work… and two… Sigh… This story… I’ve been begging for it to be written down for so long. CB refused, Pinky didn’t remember it all, and Anushika has finally answered the call of duty. With graphics! LOVE IT!
Ellen Pompeo… From Grey’s Anatomy was out last year and schooled CB like a banshee… I get giddy when I remember the story… I just giggled even… Okay, CB was trying to (and forgive me because I wasn’t there… DAMMIT! WHERE WAS THE VIDEO CAMERA WHEN YOU NEED IT?) get two things signed by Ellen Pompeo and she schooled him like a pantieless prostitute…
“Don’t you play with me CB! Don’t you play with me! I will turn around and walk away!”
You must read the story below… LOVE IT!
Working all night sick totally sucks! 2012 is already kicking my butt. Since I really haven’t gone out that much at all this year, I thought I could finally talk about the events I never got a chance to talk about last year. One event in particular interested Mike so much that he has been bugging me to write about, so this is for you Mikey! =D and of course, to everyone who was with me that night. It was most definitely an unforgettable night.
Please add and share any additional details below, since I’ll be writing about it in my point of view. It’s all a bit hazy, but can’t forget it at the same time. Anyway, enough with my rambling lol…
Last September, none other than the beautiful Meredith Grey played by Ellen Pompeo appeared at a talk show to promote Grey’s Anatomy. I heard she is very sweet and as a fan, it’s always exciting to hear good things about the celebs you love. So I headed out hoping to get a chance to meet Ellen.
I arrive to see a small crowd. I find myself a good spot right up front. Yay! The waiting game begins. CB and Pinky are both here as well. The crowd grows as we wait. Thankfully I have good company to kill time.
6:45ish: We see security moving towards the gate. Yup, it’s Ellen!!!! ^_^ We chant her name, but she rushes right on in with a quick wave. She acknowledged us, Wohoo! That’s always a good sign. Guess we are waiting another hour in the cold.
7:20ish: Wow, the crowd just keeps growing and I’m freezing my butt off!
8:15ish: We see movement. We all straighten up…sharpies and cams ready. Ok, any minute now.
8:25ish: Ellen comes out and we immediately start calling her.
She comes right on over to us without any hesitation. YAY!!!! =D OMG! I get to meet Meredith!!!!
One of her biggest fans yelled out “Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours” and she could not stop laughing.
Ellen walked towards the opposite end of the line where CB was standing. Pinky and I were standing on the opposite end. She is being really sweet and friendly. We nervously wait for our chance.
Even though everything seems to be going peachy, you never know what’ll happen. Ellen is taking her time talking to everyone and signing up a storm.
All of a sudden we hear her saying something along the line of….”One each guys, it’s not fair for others…” So we are like, ok cool, I’m happy with that! =) ….
and then she started to raise her voice, almost commanding people not to be greedy trying to get multiple items signed. She turned into a borderline school principle.
Ellen sounded pretty irritated. She was personalizing everything to make sure everyone got one each and from the looks of it, she was even taking pictures with people.
I’m thinking, alright…I guess I’m not meeting Meredith after all. She is going to leave any second now lol…
At this point, everyone goes silent trying to figure out what’s happening. I did NOT expect to hear what I heard next….Ellen pretty much chewed CB up alive! Lol… Sorry dude, but it was SO Hilarious and scared the crap out of me at the same time. She was like “Don’t you play with me CB! Don’t you play with me! I will turn around and walk away!” I guess he was trying to get multiples signed and got caught red handed. I think he was helping a fellow collector and used the same name and that really annoyed Ellen. CB just stood there frozen in fear LOL…Then again, I think we all froze! =D
She kept going on pointing to the rest of the crowd, “See all these people. They have been waiting too and you are going to ruin it for them all”. She was so feisty; she didn’t even need any security to control the crowd. Totally took control.
I held still as she got closer to our side. She was moving quickly now. I felt like I was holding my homework out for a teacher. Pinky got her picture taken with her and now she was right in front of me. It’s all a blur, but I think she asked my name. I immediately started spelling out my name. Having a crazy long does NOT help in these situations. She was like “ha? What’s your name?” I’m surprised I didn’t pee in my pants lol…I was like “Yeah, that’s my name…A…N…U…” Ellen signs for me and then I asked if I could please take a picture with her. She was really nice about it. I realized I just totally cut half of myself off, but do I dare ask for another pic??? She is almost done signing, and I muster up some courage to ask again. OMG! She said “Yeah sure!” =D I gave my cam to Pinky, so I could get a better pic. SWEET!!! I was really happy and I don’t think any of us went empty handed, so it was a successful night.
I know CB already did a report on this night, but he completely “missed” the fun parts. Anyway, hope this serves as a warning to anyone who tries to trick Ellen Pompeo in the future! ^_^ It was definitely a night to remember and my mission was accomplished! Woot Woot!
