Throwback Thurs! Meeting Dexter, I Mean Michael C. Hall And Cast On the Set! Slasher Goodness!

It’s Throwback Thurs!

For today’s look back in time, I’ve been thinking of my favorite television series and of course Dexter is at the top of that list. One of my favorite experiences ever, was heading to the Dexter set and meeting Michael C. Hall. He was so flipping cool and to top it all off, we got photos of him dressed like Dexter. It was an amazing day for sure!

Check it out below!

Ugh, let me just tell you, I hate driving, I hate getting behind the wheel and going anywhere… so, to get my Canadian ass to go anywhere over 15 minutes is a miracle from the heavens… but today the miracle is happening… well kinda… I’m going… gulp… far far away… to San Pedro… the bowels of nowhere… to check out the set of Dexter… A show I love to death… so, off I go… to the wild wild yonder…


2:00 p.m. – I’m texting my friend and trying to figure out how to get to San Pedro….

2:15 p.m. – I had another one of my brilliant ideas… Wow, I just quoted Blair from the Facts of Life… Ahhhh… you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have… the Facts of Life… That actually fits my life more than you know right now…

2:34 p.m. – My brilliant idea, in case you were wondering was to see if a couple friends wanted to join me today, it’s brilliant! BRILLIANT!

2:36 p.m. – They said no… damn! Lol…

2:43 p.m. – I’m driving, shockingly traffic isn’t bad…

2:51 p.m. – In San Pedro now… We just crossed a large bridge. I hate bridges… I also hate drive through windows, people named Bob and animatronics… They are all very scary….

2:54 p.m. – I’m a tad lost, but I see the Dexter signs, so I know They’re around here somewhere… I see the docks that I think Dexter films the boat scenes at… I really think that this is the place!

3:01 p.m. – Now, someone else I know got to meet Michael C. Hall here the other day, because they have a picture with him… Clearly that wasn’t brain surgery, but what I deduced was that there is a sign that says “bra” on it in the background of said picture and that sign is somewhere here and that’s where I have to be!

3:08 p.m. – I’ve just hit my dork quotient for the day…

3:15 p.m. – There are two people waiting by this fence… one girl has a camera dangling from her hand…They are not stealthy… and the guy has horrible pants… ugh…

3:31 p.m. – This is the place… Okay, I’m parked, and I just walked over… Wait… WAIT!

3:35 p.m. – The Bra sign has been found! I repeat I have seen the bra!

4:02 p.m. – Oh wait, Julia Stiles just drove by in a golf cart… Okay some signs of life. I heard Julia Stiles is the Meryl Streep of our generation….

4:05 p.m. – When you start writing in inside jokes in your article it might be time to pack it in folks… lol…

4:17 p.m. – The two other people are leaving… Bad pants and all… Ah well… now, it’s just me… Oh my God I want to break out into song, that means I’m super slap happy… sigh…

4:23 p.m. – I’m sipping water out of my water bottle very gingerly… it’s all I have to survive on for hours and let me tell ya, there is nothing around… NOTHING! Did I mention there’s nothing around… sigh…

4:31 p.m. – The China Shipping truck just pulled up blaring Chinese punk rock… I didn’t know there was Chinese punk rock music, but now I know…

4:41 p.m. – China shipping man is digging for something in his truck… God bless him…

4:51 p.m. – There is a loud bell… all these workers are coming out… quitting time on the docks…

4:53 p.m. – Holy shit, a carrying truck is pulling a bunch of prop cars for the shoot! Dude, that rocks…

4:56 p.m. – Now, it’s even more barren . I’m debating about going to get some food… I saw a tiny little dive restaurant on the way here, I could die of food poisoning if I eat there, or starve if I don’t… hmmmmm….

5:01 p.m. – Okay I’m googling… What did people do before cell phones could access the internet?

5:06 p.m. – A car just pulled up and towards the set. It has a FL license plate… wait; I just realized its Dexter’s car! Dude, how cool…

5:21 p.m. – I’m going to try that little place and just pulled up in front of it… I have to pee and I’m afraid there might be a poo in my future… sigh…

5:32 p.m. – I got a burger and fried zucchini… I’m scared

5:41 p.m. – I’m going to pee… I just have to…

5:43 p.m. – I’m now peeing… someone is standing outside the door… this is a small space that I’m sure has not been checked for health code violations in some time… I feel the presence of a large man outside the door listening to me urinate… What to do?

5:44 p.m. – I finish urinating…

5:45 p.m. – I’m now taking toilet paper and stuffing it into my pockets… I figure if I have to use the restroom again at some point, it’s a barren wasteland, and I will need toilet paper…

5:46 p.m. – The large man is still outside the door… I have to open it… Okay, here goes…

5:48 p.m. – I just said hi to the man who listened to me pee… he was 6’1 and probably 325 pounds. He wore a half shirt that allowed room for his belly to breathe… I want to go back to the lonely street now please…

5:54 p.m. – Okay I’m back… and I am chewing on a fry…. A golf cart comes by… I see Julia Stiles and… Oh Shit! It’s Michael C Hall! He’s riding on the back of the cart as well. I ask him… “Michael, can you sign?”

5:55 p.m. – He nods and holds up his finger to signal in a minute… I’m Dying, because he is in costume and it really looked like Dexter told me one minute and I’m going to kill you. Thank God I haven’t done anything really bad in my life… I mean I did steal those butterscotch candies when I was 10 but I know I said a Hail Mary or something when I was Catholic so I think that’s all wiped clean… sigh…

6:01 p.m. – I’m getting out my Dexter crap out now… Wow, I’m freaking out just a tad…

6:04 p.m. – I have this really cool season 4 poster… Wow… Okay, I need to calm myself…

6:10 p.m. – I see Michael emerge from the back of the location… or home base or whatever… he’s on the phone and slowly walking towards me…

6:14 p.m. – He’s still walking towards me… I have a red paint pen ready… How cool is that a red paint pen for Michael C Hall…? I mean really, cause it will look like blood… God, I’m dorking out! Dude…

6:18 p.m. – Michael just walked over to me… I told him how much I love the show and Six Feet Under, and I’m sure I spazzed out a tad. He signed two things and was just so nice. He also used my kick ass red paint pen… It looks awesome! I’m so jazzed… getting a picture with someone is one thing, getting them in character another thing entirely!
