Can I tell you for a second how much I hate the AFI film festival? First off they promote themselves as being all fan friendly, and not charging for tickets… etc… that’s all well and good, but if they really were “fan friendly” they wouldn’t have their festival complete inaccessible… it’s just a real slap in the face to fans everywhere… Anyway, but like a glutton for punishment I’m off to the opening night of AFI, the world premiere of Love and Other Drugs starring Mr. Jake Gyllenhaal and Ms. Anne Hathaway. So, off I go to the wild blue yonder!

3:32 p.m. – I just arrived and I was sure there would be tons of fans here… but alas, no one… and I mean no one is here… sigh… wonderful, it’s going to be a fun night. I have a decent feeling though cause the barricade is set up for them to come over, so… that’s a good sign right?

3:43 p.m. – The water truck just came by to fill up the barricade protector or whatever they are called…

3:45 p.m. –Just talked to Erica and she’s planning on coming by so at least someone will be here…

3:54 p.m. – A few more people are here now, we have seven! Whoo hoo!?

3:59 p.m. – sigh…

4:02 p.m. – Scotty is coming tonight as well… so yay…

4:11 p.m. – It looks like the wonderful AFI festival is blocking off the carpet so we can’t even see people. Wow, how nice…

4:15 p.m. – okay, I’m getting wierded out right now. An Amish couple pushing a stroller and eating yogurt are standing on Hollywood blvd. It’s the strangest most damn thing I have ever seen.

4:16 p.m. – I wonder if they are no that pilgrimage thing, that the Amish have to do before they become full Amish, there’s a word for it… what’s the word, what’s the word….

4:34 p.m. – I can’t think of the word… dammit!

4:45 p.m. – Scotty just got here… Now I get to show him my Desperate Housewives pictures!

5:03 p.m. – Arrivals begin at 6:30 so Anne Hathaway will probably show up around 7:15 and Jake Gyllenhaal at 7:00 just a guess.

5:22 p.m. – Well the giant black wall is up, so we can’t see shit. My God what’s up with that! Grumble…

5:32 p.m. – It’s like the monolith from 2001: A space Odyssey… grumble number two…

5:37 p.m. – Oh and there’s Erica. She’s bitching about the monolith as well. No one can understand why they would do that to the fans.

5:41 p.m. – I hate AFI.

5:56 p.m. – It is so hot here in California. I mean its November and it’s 100 degrees outside. It’s just bizarre weather!

6:01 p.m. – The carpet is set up and the monolith is in place.

6:09 p.m. – An old man with a surfboard strapped to his bike is riding shirtless down Hollywood blvd. Venice is a long drive away dude.

6:23 p.m. – The press is all waiting as are we. I guess the talent will have small AFI cars to drive around in.

6:33 p.m. – A few people have arrived. No one big yet. I actually want to see Love and Other Drugs cause the previews are… well… they look cute. There I said it!

6:36 p.m. – A giant bus is just sitting in the middle of Hollywood blvd blocking our way. Ugh… if someone arrives now we are screwed. I blame AFI for this… I have no reason for it, I just do.

6:41 p.m. – So far no one yet… At least as we can tell. I have my love and other drugs mini poster with me and some other crap to get signed. Lol….

6:55 p.m. – Wow, Jamie Lee Curtis and her husband Christopher Guest just arrived. Not going to bother calling her over… but wow, I’m shocked to see her….

7:11 p.m. – I’m so pissed right now… so pissed…

7:15 p.m. – Oh and there’s Anne Hathaway! Everyone is screaming for her. She keeps waving at us, and then… What the fuck man, the people at AFI directed her to the other side. Dammit! She even pointed over here! This is fucked up!

7:41 p.m. – Scotty, Erica and I are headed to Baja Fresh….

8:01 p.m. – It just sucks to see people sign and you can’t make it over there. I mean… It worse than if they didn’t sign at all…

9:22 p.m. – We are just hanging out… so, we are headed to the other barricade to see if we can catch anyone going out… sigh…

9:29 p.m. – So far nothing but the security looking at the handprints at the Mann’s Chinese Theatre… I feel so safe now…

9:41 p.m. – All the AFI cars are lined up on the street… So, more than likely everyone will drive. Great…

10:08 p.m. – The movie is letting out…

10:14 p.m. – I see Anne Hathaway getting into her car amongst the sea of people. She drives across the street and we follow her… Security beats me to the Roosevelt and I see Anne Hathaway signing for a couple people before walking inside. Sigh…

10:17 p.m. – I’m heading back to the other barricade with Scotty and Erica.

10:22 p.m. – We see Judy Greer! We ask her to sign and she kind of sighs, and says, “Sure.” She signs my Love and Other Drugs poster and my 13 going on 30 poster. I don’t think she was happy about it though. Lol…

10:23 p.m. – And now we see Gabriel Macht from The Spirit. We half heartedly call him over and I get him on the Love and other drugs poster. And that’s it… Such a bummer of a night. I’m a tad pissed off, I’m tired and I hate AFI… did I mention that? Sigh…
