There’s something about random events I hate. Either the guest looks too good to be true, or there’s no one interesting, or no one shows up, or that one random name you’ve been dying to meet never shows up.
Well, this event was a little bit of both. I went because Elisabeth Shue was on the list and I love her. Soapdish, Adventures in Babysitting, Cocktail, etc… I heart her.
Also on the list was Nicole Kidman and Jon Bon Jovi… uh huh… Too good to be true right?
Did I mention that this was a gym opening? A gym… Nicole Kidman showing up to a gym opening? Right!
There were some Olympians coming in and out and I have no idea who they are so I don’t care.
My eyes are peeled for the Shue. Elisabeth Shue why do you plague me!?!?
Olympians are running in and people are going nuts over them. I’m peeled…
Oh a car! It looks just like Elisabeth Shue! It’s… It’s… Body of Proof star Jeri Ryan!
I actually really like Jeri Ryan from Star Trek Voyager and Body of Proof so I’m kind of excited even though I don’t have anything for her.
She was super nice and more than willing to pose for a quick photo. That was a nice one at least.
And then a car… It’s… It’s… Nicole Kidman!!??!?!?!?!?!? She showed up!
Nicole breezed in and ignored everyone as she ran inside, but she showed up! Holy crap!
A few more random names showed up that I didn’t know.
Alan Ritchson who plays Aquaman in Smallville showed up and he was really cool.
He posed for photos and was pretty cool. That was fun.
And then… Jon Bon Jovi arrived. I was like holy crap! What happened? He wouldn’t even look at people.
Seriously, he just flat out dissed the five people trying to get something signed or whatever. I was like… Damn. Seriously, it’s not just Love You’re Giving A Bad Name, Jon… Man…
As the event was winding down, still no Elisabeth Shue… Apparently you really don’t fuck with the babysitter…
Then Something Borrowed star Colin Egglesfield pulled up. He was super nice, posing for photos and talking to everyone… And the man was just going to work out in the gym!
And then that was it…
At least I ended up with a couple cool photos but with events like this, you just never know what to expect!
Until next time kids…
